How am I supposed to make snidely humorous witticisms in your diary when you don't give me anything to be snidely witty about?

Peace, dude.

I have some old Mardi Gras beads at home. If I remember, at some point I'll put them on. And then, probably take them off. Woohoo.

What's in this tamiflu stuff??? by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #9 Tue Feb 28, 2006 at 08:10:45 AM EST
Today is the first day I've been off the aleve stuff since I blew my arm out again. I'm right happy about it too as that stuff puts a bad taste in my mouth. I think/hope it's on the mend. The last thing I want to do is go through a bunch of rehab.

Say, npr had a story about glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate last week that made me think of you. Turns out it doesn't seem to make any difference unless your symptoms are severe.

Warmest regards,
--Your best pal Bob

Tamiflu is the shiznit by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #11 Tue Feb 28, 2006 at 08:43:26 AM EST
Apparently you can take it when you expect to be around flu patients, and not get infected, it's somr sort of anti-viral, highly recomended for Doctors and other care givers.

I don't always take the MSM Glu chon, so it's hard to say it's had an affect. Severeity is always subjective, but when every step feels like a 10 d nail is being hammered through the balls of my foot, it's severe to me.

Since leaving Michigan by ks1178 (4.00 / 1) #22 Wed Mar 01, 2006 at 07:03:25 AM EST
I've had to go out of my way to actually find them.

I was shocked my first year out and I stopped at the local Donut shop, and had no clue what I was talking about.

Usually if you can find a good Polish bakery on Fat Tuesday you can get them. But back in Detroit, it was hard to go anywhere that didn't have them available.

Nothing like 2000 calories of sugar and lard.

Folks look at you as if you're retarded. by calla (2.00 / 0) #23 Wed Mar 01, 2006 at 07:15:19 AM EST
"Where are your poonch-kees, please?"

Paczkis are just one of the many things I miss about Michigan.

Another regional donut difference - maple bars. In all the donut retailers I visited back East - I found an occasional chocolate bar, but no maple bars.

NO MAPLE BARS!!!!

I guess you've got to be an enlightened West Coaster to understand the delicious beauty of a maple bar.
