Rou, that's so sad. I'm very sorry.

Dear period, I got your message. Could you please hold off your visit for a few more hours at least. Signed, person who studiedly forgot to buy tampons last night.

What's worse than waiting endlessly at a doctor's office who you hate? The inane chatter across from me by two women. And I'm the youngest by at least 100 years up in this piece. Save me.

I wish people would stop making wheat out to be the devil. I understand it negatively affects some people (though I think more research needs to be done when it comes to effects on people who don't suffer from intolerance or Celiac's), but really, it's getting blamed for everything under the sun when it has sustained people for thousands of years.
And that's without getting into the role that less digestible, mass-produced bread has played in terms of gluten tolerance, which like mass-produced bread is a fairly recent issue.

I read an article about "the worst food additives" this weekend and a number of them were commonly found in commercial bread. I can't help but think the unnatural additives are what's really causing the issues, not the wheat.

Oh yeah, I get so annoyed that that's become the new fad. What caused that? Did Dr. Oz or Oprah do a special on it?

Genuine gluten intolerance and celiac disease are very serious conditions, and I can't stand the people who self-diagnose just to convince themselves that they're special.

EDIT: I'm not being snarky about Mad Scientist's thread. I didn't notice it until after I wrote this post.

I'm not being snarky about mad scientist's post, either. I can understand why she would feel as she does. It's just the topic brings out responses that are typical of the current trend to find a scapegoat food and self-diagnose.

I have known my BIL or 15 years and I am just now realizing that he and Peyton Manning look a great deal alike. It's kind of funny since they were friends in college.

Not just that, but because it's about output, and having as much as quickly as possible, commercial bread cuts down on fermentation time a lot. It makes up for it with those additives and dough relaxers/improvers. Less fermentation equals less breakdown of the grain and that equals less digestible bread.

I'm a low carb/Primal based eater but I don't consider wheat to be an enemy. Just as I don't consider soy to be an enemy. But I do consider extremely genetically modified grains/etc to be not the best things for humans simply because we haven't evolved fast enough to keep up. Which I think is one of the reasons so many people have intolerances, allergies, etc.

The way I eat works great for me so that's all that really matters to me. If something else works for others, I'm cool with that too.

SO showed up at lunchtime, home from work. At first I thought he was sick, but he was giggling and giggling …

Turns out one of his colleagues accidentally brought some pot cookies in to work and shared them around. SO ate two of them. So far he's been punchy and giggly, then he slept a bit and then he woke up and was a little paranoid. Now he's sleeping again.

He used to be a regular pot smoker, but hasn't done it in years and has never eaten it in anything. I think it's hysterical that out of the handful of people who ate the cookies, he was one of them. Of course he's always foraging for food, so I guess it's not that surprising …

I hope his co-worker doesn't get into trouble, he went home "sick" as well. He said his roommate made the cookies, who knows? It's a pretty laid-back workplace, they have Beer Fridays and stuff. So this will probably blow over. Pretty funny! This is sitcom sort of material, really.

I really, really don't want to be depressed anymore. I can't even get a waitressing job right now. I feel like all my friends are moving on and up and are far away. I feel like my mom and my sister couldn't care less about me. I am trying so hard and the harder I try to feel better the worse I end-up feeling. I feel like the biggest screw-up in the world, like nothing is ever going to get better.

(((rou)))

(((CIBC))) I've been feeling like a left-behind failure, too, and I know you can't just refuse the feeling, but keep fighting - all the curlies are rooting for you! Yes, all of them. Even the ones who don't use this site. It's a mind-meld thing, never you mind about the particulars.

Bwahaha, I love Nostalgia Chick's review of What Women Want! "Hi, I'm a Jew. Have a yamacha." And all the thoughts! Especially Rap Critic's! And the extra bits at the end! Showing that ridiculous face-covering scene without the thought-voiceover was the perfect choice, too.

Bought myself a new ring as an early birthday gift to myself. Amethyst beads and nuggets and a silver butterfly and flower which all move and are very 3 dimensional, on a wide silver band. I love it. : )
