Silver Crusade

My weird food allergy is that certain fresh fruits make my mouth swell up and itch. Apples, pears, and all varieties of stone fruit. But if you cook them, the heat denatures the sugars and I have no problem at all.

No one wants to believe me when I say, "No, I can't eat that apple; I am allergic. Ooh! Can I have a piece of that apple pie? I love apple pie."

It's a real thing, though (called oral allergy syndrome) and I am not alone!

So much talk of whiskey....one of those things that I really really miss. :(

Allergies suck.

Rum is the only thing I have an allergy to, which is good and bad.

Sorry to hear about your allergies. If I recall, you have a lot of food allergies. :(

Yeah, I have serious (like can put me in the hospital serious) allergies to fish and wheat. And a bunch of metal sensitivities. So, you know, I'm only allergic to the stuff that's hard to avoid. The wheat allergy developed within the last year, so I'm still adjusting to all the stuff I can't ever have again. And then there's the list of things I'm not supposed to have because of my ear condition, but I occasionally cheat on anyways. Like alcohol (I can at least still have wine and cider) and caffeine. Chocolate is now a once every few months thing for me, and coffee or tea is like maybe twice a year. I'm not supposed to have salt either, but that's just crazy talk.
Oh man, that's really really difficult. How do you deal?

Well, mostly I don't have a choice. I try to just focus on the things I like that I can still have. And not as much eating out. It's just not safe what with the risk of cross contamination and all. The caffeine withdrawal was hard, but it was a choice between giving up caffeine or letting my ear disease progress to the point where they have to do an operation that permanently destroys my hearing. Even I don't like coffee that much. :)

But sometimes I do get bummed out when I can't have something that I really miss. Like whiskey, donuts, or Korean fried chicken. *shrug* But what can I do? I break out in hives if I even touch something that touched something with wheat in it. So I just gotta deal.

You can't have bonchon?!?!?!?

Dear god. CH and I need to get on a treatment, STAT.

CH! Cast..uh..Cure Serious Allergies or something!!!

Is Cure Serious Allergies a 4th level spell? Because I don't know if I can part with all of my preparations of water walk.

Based on Treppa's endorsement, I have started reading Moby Dick. I'll be back in a couple of months when I have finished.

Irish Bailey Cream + Coffee.

FIFY

Silver Crusade

A quick Internet search reveals that all Bailey's Irish Cream is made in the same place in Ireland according to the same recipe (with recipe variants for the flavored products, but why bother?)

Still, I feel like a taste test is in order.

So.

Looks like my phone just died. No reason, no explanation, just turned off and won't go past the Samsung logo when I take the battery back out and put it back in. Needless to say, after everything that happened today, where the place I was going to this weekend for a special training on mental health first aid certification said they couldn't find the money order I sent them and so can't give me my certification, and my second job had some kind of error or glitch where they said I didn't work Pride weekend and so didn't pay me either in full or at all(still not sure which), this is...not a good day. Trying to keep it together and not put my fist through something or someONE and I am succeeding. But this is a lot of bad luck for one day.

We need booze.

Thanks to the glitch with the second job, I don't even have enough for THAT.

I know you said work had been slowing down or just plain strange of late, did something else happen to make you want booze?

No, not really. It is more like sympathy booze :) Right now, I am drinking Bailey's on the rocks in your honor.
Bailey's with ice. An old favorite. Thanks man.
Alas, it's the last of my Bailey's. I will need another bottle. I didn't realize I was so near the end of it. It's almost sad...
Is Bailey's difficult to get in the States? Cause, if so, there is a small Irish FaWtL division now. :P
It's not that hard to get really, although the larger bottles can be expensive.

Yep. It is a pretty ubiquitous offering in US bars and liquor stores.

I wonder if the formula is different in the US market. I will have to compare.

Spinach is pretty good in a tomato sauce-based lasagna or a queso dip.

I like green beans too, but I've had the canned versions so much growing up that the fresh ones taste weird.

I mix spinach into the ricotta layer of my lasagna.

I came home today in a mood for baking, and found I have nothing to bake with. I just sent John out for eggs. I have trained him well.

I ate kale.

I was not impressed.

I found it easier to think of kale as a delivery platform for garlic, bacon, and parmesan cheese.

This was mixed into a "Santa Fe" salad. I thought it would be pretty good, because it would be surrounded by corn, chicken, avocado, cheese, and tortilla straws and tossed with a spicy dressing. Somehow the bitterness of the kale managed to come through all those other flavors in an unpleasant fashion.

You remember when PbPs were mixed into the Off Topic Discussion boards.

You remember how and why the Untitled thread began.

Heathy alluded to this, but... You have painful flashbacks whenever you hear the word "penultimate."

Yesterday we went to a birthday party at The Melting Pot. I had never been. I can see why some people don't like it, as you are paying a lot of money to cook your own food, but I thought it was kind of fun. *shrug*

I took your last turn for you. That is why you had moved. (And the reason I moved you where I did is because Thing 1 has a flanking partner for you, whereas Thing 2 only has Smitty, who is fighting with a pistol, and that won't help you.)

Well, it was her own fault being a skank. Probably wasn't the best timing, but CF isn't a liar.

Thankfully, she didn't manage to get off a curse of lyskankthropy hex.

I'm not so sure about that. Did you get a look at that tube top CF is wearing?

It didn't help that when she called you out on it, you called her a skank and hit her with a sack of turnips.
