shame on internet
Stuff not worthy of its own thread
shame on me.
that fucking sucks. Hope everything works out for you.
However, how do you feel about Lady Gaga - would you do her?
Hell yes. And 9 times on each weekend.
I'm a sucker for batshit-insane theatre majors. But that's just me.
I have crohn's disease, and it sucks big time. I can't eat any wheat or any dairy. IMAGINE THAT FOR ONE MINUTE. Plus I get flare-ups that are wicked painful and I am about 30 pounds underweight. I did just get insurance as of the first of the year, however, so I will be seeing a GI stat.
Serious question? Because if I couldn't drink beer or milk, I would rather just die. I think Mickey Redmond has that
No gluten whatsoever can enter these guts. Same with milk. What really blows is that none of this hit me until about age 22, so I had several years to enjoy beer and to develop into a true beer snob. Then it all came crashing down around me.
My sister has it. She found some very restricted diet - not just gluten, but no starch of any kind, which includes all sugar, all fruit and some vegetables - but she can have certain kinds of dairy (like homemade yogurt - big hassle) and some kinds of cheeses. Essentially, she was eating only meat and green vegetables, yogurt and certain cheeses. Her cholesterol shot up to 400 because of all the red meat, but it helped the Crohn's.
edit - she wasn't diagnosed until she turned 40.
There are a number of regional breweries that are making gluten-free beer now. Just an FYI. I know Lakefront Brewery (Milwaukee) makes one, and I wouldn't be surprised if some of the national chains will be jumping on the bandwagon soon.
take priority over plain old milk, but i agree.
They make gluten-free beer :]
Two people in my family have it. Hopefully, you can try to control it with diet, and keep the stress level down. I really feel for you.
Weak indeed. My mom has the same thing, only she doesn't have as big a dietary restriction as that. But she takes like eight different kinds of pills to keep it under control, and stressful stuff causes flareups. I hope it's not hereditary. She didn't learn she had it until about ten years ago.
Luckily for me I have ony run into two things I cannot eat: bananas and pineapple. It's weird. I cannot gain weight and am about 15lbs underweight. Crohn's is pretty fucked up.
If you need some extra weight I have a bunch I can spare. Just joking. Hope the Crohn's doesn't get too bad for you. I have a good friend who has it. It is a shitty thing
My roommate's in the same boat, and on top of everything else, she was just diagnosed as gluten intolerant. She goes to a bunch of different doctors and gets samples of insulin to keep her costs down, and she's been to the hospital twice this school year.
So I agree, fuck diabetes indeed.
You know what I hate about Diabetes? The way Wilford Brimley says it...
Seriously though, my grandmother has it and it's no picnic. I feel for you man.
I love The Jamaican Jerk Pit.
I lived directly above it, in the room next to the dude that runs it. You could get a contact high just walking into the hallway at 8 am. Almost needless to say: it was awesome.
So as not to be using this as a piss and moan thread:
I FUCKING LOVE "Hint of Lime" Tostitos. Holy shit these are the best chips ever made. They even blow the lid off a Pringles can, which is hard to do because Pringles are incredible. There are 1,000 brands of chips in the world, many of which I like and 999 of which, like them or not, I have the willpower to resist when I see them. Lime Tostitos are the exception. I believe they would be the world's most perfect chip that could ever be created if they would make them in the dipping shape that they have for other Tostitos.
I like salt & vinegar chips and salt & cracked pepper kettle chips myself.
I love salt and vinegar chips. If you like that sort of potato chip, jalapeno chips are good, too. Best brand of chips IMHO are Cape Cod. I can't remember if they have them in Mich.
They do, I grabbed some of the Robust Russets in Port Huron before crossing into Ontario.
Cracked salt pepper kettle chips are amazing.
but its the hint of jalapeno for me. I am a health food guy normally, but they are my weakness....
I know this is a real chick thing to say, but diet coke is the best thing to drink with pizza. I'm so certain of this, I don't even feel I have to elaborate.
Diet coke is only good with Mentos.
Know what's worse than Diet Coke? Tab. Tab tastes like diet diet Coke. Uuuuuuuuugh.
Diet Coke is like American Idol: it's insanely popular, and I absolutely despise it. I have yet to find a worse pop, though I've never had Tab.
Ironically enough by the way, I JUST had this same discussion about Diet Coke and Tab with someone else, like, yesterday or the day before.
But now I'm addicted to diet coke, and drink it in unhealthy quantities. I think there's something evil in it.
My intro psych teacher freshman year (Shelly Schreier) admitted to us that she drank on average 12 20-oz. Diet Cokes every day. That's an outrageous amount of Diet Coke.
you order a coke at a restaurant and someone else orders a diet, and they mix em up and once you take a sip of that diet your taste buds are done for the night.
I dislike all things Diet but alas, it is the only thing that is in my house
I see what you did there
Could be girlier... appletini?
I'm obsessed with Dr. Pepper myself.
No Diet Coke. Ever.
And Pepsi, forget about it.
So while I was in the Marines down in NC I would always fight with my freinds about it. I hate when people call it soda...its pop. Then my one buddy calls it coke when referring to any carbonated beverage.
How do they not sell Faygo Redpop nationally those poor saps down south have NEVER experienced its intoxicating taste. So after I got out I went to the store and what does Faygo do jack their prices up to equal Pepsi and Coke. WTF it always used to be like 88 cents for a 2 liter now its a $1.08. That may seem like a small difference but I drink alot of it.
I feel much better MGoTherapy!!!
But all things with bubbles in them are called Coke. I think it's a Biblical commandment. You can go to Taco Bell and order a Pepsi Coke if you want. On New Year's drink some champagne Coke. I personally like Diet Dr. Pepper Coke, but to each his own, to each his own.
and wholeheartedly agree.
1 package of Jimmy Deans (or Bob Evans) Zesty Sausage
1 package of cheddar cheese (2 cups)
3/4 cup all-purpose baking mix
1/4 cup finely chopped seeded fresh jalapeno peppers
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
375 for 18 minutes.
TRUST me - these things are so addictive, you and your friends will also call them 'crack balls'
What is all purpose baking mix? Flour like substance?
but i agree 100%. Totally underrated.
I never liked Elvis.
