I just saw a great "I like cheese" t-shirt somewhere... My friend's son says that all the time, or at least when he isn't saying "I like pie"

I don't like fake (soy) cheese, but can't eat real (dairy) cheese any more. I used to love cheese.

I really hope your shirt gets printed, it's the one I want most. Of course, I seem to be a jinx - anything I want to win doesn't. Though I did like the hermit crabs, even tho I wanted Mine! more. Gotta work on this jinx/sending people to 4th+ place thing...


I died a little inside when the PI shirt didn't get printed. I seriously want that shirt something fierce.

I <3 pie. And I <3 cheese more. I've bought both cheese offerings from wine.woot...and I live alone. ^_~

They had it week before last so it'll be another few months before the next offering...and they probably won't risk it once it heats up outside so not until fall.

If you ever go through north Ohio (to say, Lake Erie or Cedar Point), be sure to stop here- Cheese Haven.

wow. <hides link from dairy-eating husband>

I loved stopping at one of the Italian markets in Boston on my way home from work. Fresh mozzarella in water...

Yah, I'll probably have to test the dairy thing again.. thanks guys.

I wouldn't know. ^_~

PS - My dad was (is? not sure if he still cares) lactose intolerant and he was able to pop some pills to help it. Problem solved. Probablty doesn't work for everyone, but what's the big deal if you can take a couple pills with your cheese and milk?

I'll answer this one:

I'm violently lactose intolerant, the last time I drank a glass of milk I vomited across a room... literally. If I take two lactaid ultra (it's like taking 6 regular lactaid) I can almost get through a bowl of ice cream, but I'll have explosive diahrrea within a few hours.

The only cool part is that I'll feel drunk for a few minutes before I explode, so if I start talking funny back away quickly.

Cheese nowadays is mostly salt and oil so I can handle pizza, but whipped cream will kill me dead.

most lactards aren't as bad as myself and just get farty... like my wife.

I'm violently allergic to (of all the stupid things) bell peppers. I explode out both ends while running through all the anaphlactic shock symptoms, then (if the world is being kind) I pass out.

yeah, welcome to my world.

plus 3 girls who can't have dairy.

We also have Celiac disease, and my 4 year old is anaphylacic to berries. So really, no dairy isn't a big deal. unless I see a reese's cup or some good cheese. *sigh* But I'd rather avoid cheese/dairy than be sick for a few days. ditto on rather not have wheat/gluten than be sick for a few days.

But hey - my 10 year old submitted an entry!

Re: 1998 - The moon



She drew it on paper, then we scanned it into GIMP, and then she redrew lines and everything. It took from late-thursday until now, but she did it. Her previous "entries" never made it off the paper, so if nothing else, I'm proud of her for trying.

She has a really good sense of color, I'm impressed with how she made her topic pop.

That's really sweet! Someday I hope to have a ten year old that is that cool.

Celiac is one thing I'm truly glad to not have, being tested for it was horror enough. I hear gluten isn't really that good for you anyway. Who knows, in the future they may label gluten a toxin like they seem to be doing with all the artificial sweeteners these days.

Time to plant a garden methinks.

Artificial sweeteners are a toxin? Sugar makes me feel worse. Is that a toxin?

Garden is probably a good idea anyways. I recently found a house for sale on a one-acre lot in the city in my price range. I would love to have a greenhouse garden, but the house will probably sell by the time my wife and I are ready to buy (about 2 months). I can only hope the market will be too slow and keep that house around.

part of me letting her have an account is that occasionally I pull out the "I'm the mom" and "encourage" a vote.

Maybe I should've had more kids for more votes... ;)

I guess it's funny. Although I have to say it doesn't surprise me at all that a kid could fare well. Their imaginations are sharp and untarnished. Skillz is skillz, you know...?

On an unrelated note, I've been spending the past few hours avoiding the creepy and unrelenting stare of a lurky co-worker. He keeps trying to catch my glance to like...talk to me, and I'll bury myself into my papers or whatever. Normally, I have no problem striking up conversations with people, but this dude gives me the willies.
