  1. Ahem...(clears throat) Me-me-me-meeeeeee... My bologna has a first name it's O-S-C-A-R, my bologna has a second name, it's M-A-Y-E-R. Oh! I love to eat it every day and if you ask me why I'll say.'Cause Oscar Mayer has a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A! I had to get that out of my system. I made my daughter a bologna sandwich this morning and that accursed jingle has been haunting me since! We've been having such fun on the gfp thread lately, and made such a crazy mess of it, that I thought it was time to move the silliness to it's own silly home. So come on in and join the silliness. Any topic is fair game. Laughter is the best medicine! Does anybody else have a particularly annoying jingle stuck in their head? (Who let the dogs out?) From the old thread: The old The Funny Pages - Tickle Me Elbow topic is too huge, so Scott (admin) locked it and this new one was started.
  2. Disney World - Burger & Fries

    It really is the Magic Kingdom! Does anybody know if Frontier Fries (in Frontierland) or Petrifries (in Disneys Animal Kingdom) are still around? They were the quick service shacks that served ONLY McD's fries and soft drinks - no McMystery Meat Nuggets to foul up the oil...Sadly I fear they are no more...can anyone confirm this?
  3. ...I am practicing my "queuing" <- there's a word that nver looks to be spelled correctly... I figure the heat and humidity will keep my mind off of my aching feet
  4. "Hi" I am doing well. The family and I are headed to Disney World, so I am here on "officiaL bizniz" I hope all of you are well too
  5. Disney World - Burger & Fries

    Hi all. My family and I are heading for WDW on Sunday. Since WDW is where dreams come true I am getting in the spirit and dreamin gof a burger on a gluten-free bun and some seriously deep-fried french fries. For those of you have been to WDW, where did you have success in locating this most decadent of entrees? I have heard tales of places that only sell uncontaminated McD's fries (gulp)...but I have also heard tales that this ended w/ the WDW McD's break up... Anybody else have any favorite suggestions for "quick service" meals in any of the 4 parks? Thanks Richard
  6. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  7. In my brief search this morning I came across quite a bit of research pointing towards the celiac disease/depression connection. I agree that she should be tested, but she is currently unemployed and without insurance...(did I mention she is depressed?) She only went to the Dr. because my mother (a nurse) got the doc to see her for free. He put her on Prozac, which worries me...isn't there a connection between prozac and suicidal tendencies? That's just what I would look for in an anti-depressant... She is in such a fragile state of mind that I don't want to overwhelm her with the possibility that she may need to go gluten-free to get better...going gluten-free may be just one step along a very long path to getting well. There are other issues, that i won't get into here, that are compounding her gloom. I appreciate all of the well wishes and support from everybody. Hopefully the meds will help her get back on her feet and allow her to start getting well. Peace
  8. I've missed you all as well. My how time flies...I can't begin to catch up on the silli-bidness that I've missed, but I'm glad to see you've kept the lights on. I actually logged on today for "official business" To make a long story short, the last two minths (and counting) have been an absolute roller coaster for me and my family...My younger sister has slipped into a deep depression and we are all very worried for her. She finally agreed to go see a Dr. and he promptly put her on anti-depressants. Hopefully this will help. I had an epiphany last night, which leads me to my "official business" here today... I was laying in bed think about the situation and the light bulb went on that perhaps she is suffering from Celiac's...My older sister was Dx'd before I was, my mom is asymptomatic but carries the gene (not THE "Gene" Bev) ...so it kind of makes sense that she may suffer as well... I'm not off base here, right?I was trying to see if there is research that showed celiac disease manifesting with depression as a symptom. She has none of the GI symptoms... I just want to help her get better...it's frightening -the change in her demeanor and her withdrawl from the world at large. Sorry to cast a cloud over the siliness. Off to take care of business.
  9. Oh, man....I just got done skimming through 12 pages of lunacy. I'm kicking myself for not sticking around...and missing the "Toaster Poster" Alas there is work to be done. I managed to find the recipe for the Quinoa Stuffing. The flow charts and Power Point presentations were lost in the flood, so if you are a "visual learner" you're on your own. I originally sent this to Susan (hence the references to dingos and wine in hand...feel free to substitiute a mammal and spirit of your choosing) ...she thought it a bit complicated (shrugs) Quinoa Stuffing with Smoked Surry Sausage Step 1: Get from store, or have on hand
  10. Do you REALLY want to know? I tried explainingit to SusieQ (Q does not stand for Queen of all things Quinoa), and if my memory serves me, the various flow charts and power point presentations outlining the 145 simple steps (several of which involve consuming alcohol) resulted in befuddlement and poo-pooing (not to be confused with poo-ooping ) So I ask you again, do you REALLY WANT TO KNOW??
  11. That freaked me out too! I was catching up...somwhere around p. 438 evrything went Celiac Green for a brief monent. I thought perhaps I had won something. Sorry for the absence...I was off campaigning with Chuck. You would all do well to make a contribution to Mr. Huckabee's election fund....or else Not gonna do it. It's green bean casserole for you this year! Just cut to the chase, drink the wine and walk the dingos. Oh biother, now that I'm caught up I must go and do some work. HARUMPF!
  12. ...er, wrong kind of snow Didn't Tom Green do that on his show...on his parent's front lawn?
  13. Yes, please do! I have motion lights rigged up 'out back' just for this reason
  14. Oh buggers, I am going "over the river and thru the woods to grandma's house" (her 90th b-day on Friday There are no gluten free places in Cooperstown, but I've eaten successfully the the "Hoffman Lane Bistro" (see link above). It's a neat place, w/live entertainment most weekends. There is a health food store in town (Cooperstown Natural Foods) if you need snacks. The lady that runs it is VERY nice. Her son is autistic, and on gluten-free diet, so she is very knowledgable and well stocked. The weather? I had about 1/2" of snow on my deck this morning Cold. this week looks like lows in 20's highs in 40's. If you are going to be in Rochester for a meal you must check out the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. I haven't been there since going gluten-free so I can't vouch for that aspect - but OMG they have the BEST RIBS and a funky honky-tonk atmosphere There is almost always a wait to get in - it's THAT GOOD. Enjoy your stay
