Interesting how YMMV. Bendadryl knocks me out for a whole day and Zyrtec is ineffective.

Me too. I only take Benedryl in extreme histamine situations, and preferably at night.

Zyrtec is weird because its one of those that you can't drink citrus juices with or it doesn't work, which I don't understand.

I don't drink citrus juice very often, so maybe that's why I like Zyrtec! I try to save my empty calories for candy.

Um aawwwkkkwwaaarrrddd an old coworker just texted me, confessing his love for me. It feels so very odd and random, I can't tell if he's joking. I don't think he is, he knows I don't like him like that and more importantly I have a bf. Whyyyy did he have to make things weird.

Goodness, he just said he's serious -_-

I don't even know how to respond

Oh goodness, that is awkward. I hope you're able to figure out a tactful way to handle it. Is he someone you ever see in person?

Allegra, Allegra-D, Claritin, and Claritin-D don't work for me at all. They did for about six months and then stopped. All Claritin-D and Allegra-D do is give me a rapid heart rate and dry mouth. I've been taking Zyrtec every day, year-round, for about five years now and it's the only thing that works for me consistently. Benadryl works well too, but it wears off in about two hours.

No, not any more since I moved. He's cool and a good friend but um yea awkward city. I really hope he's playing some awful joke because I can't believe him right now.

Sweet baby Jesus he said he was joking. That was sooooo not funny, I don't like when people do that. Why must people love giving me heart attacks? Someone does this sh*t every couple of months

I hate people that freakin drive down our road like it's the Motorola 500! I almost got hit by some lunatic just trying to pull into my driveway. I'm so paranoid about being hit that I'm always looking in my rearview mirror and pound on my horn if someone gets too close behind me and doesn't look like they're going to stop, which is what this lady was doing - in a huge SUV no less. Someone got killed on our road just the other day trying to pull into her driveway. County road does not = freeway. I think if I hadn't blasted my horn she seriously wouldn't have seen me b/c I saw her skid to a halt about 3 feet behind my car. Some people shouldn't have licenses! I'm tired of having to drive for everyone else!

To my husband's credit, he is smarter but he has many Homer-isms.

I like it when they show a montage of the number of times he's banged his head, especially if there's an echo of him saying "D'oh!" when he falls down a canyon.

I prefer the short curt "D'oh" to the louder one. I like that episode where all the clones with no bellybuttons fall off the cliff.


Anthony Bourdain did a good job describing the strange attraction that I had when I lived in the high desert. Part of me hated how isolated it was but that was also what I loved about it. And I never saw sunsets or starlit skies as beautiful.

Our ramps dish. I make fun that this plating was inspired by a visit to the planetarium.



It's grilled ramps, a crispy soft-boiled egg, yuzu curd, brown butter-lemon emulsion, and bacon powder.

My allergies have been driving me nuts. So I have been taking zyrtec at night. I have not been sleeping well (and when I do have I crazy dreams) lately but I am not sure if it's pre or actual menopause (I stopped taking BC end of January) or if I am still stressing/upset over my Mom's death or the zyrtec. Gosh, could I have any more issues? I am not going to taking the zyrtec tonight.

That is so pretty and I wish I could taste it.
Can I ask how to make crispy soft boiled eggs?
