    I don't listen to the radio that often, but when I get tired of the mix cd in the car, I'll pop it on. I made a rule for myself that if a song I don't recognize is playing on one of our preset stations, I have to listen to it. I've found some good new music that way. Unfortunately, I also hear awful snippets of talk radio while I'm waiting for the sound to process in my ears. I need 5-10 seconds to understand what I'm hearing on the radio when I'm in the car, mostly from separating road noise (the car is not really loud, it's just an auditory fault of mine). By the time the sounds process, I am bummed about having wasted that time. This morning, I heard some bullshit about "sluts" on "Boston's rock station". It's sickening to me that this kind of shaming is acceptable to some people. They were talking about how it's slutty for a woman to hook up with a guy and then hook up with someone else the next day, not sleeping with someone on the first date. So, "slut" is defined by the person who isn't getting any. That sense of "ownership" is disgusting.
    I used to drive from NH to Lexington MA every day, which was 125 miles round trip. I listened to a LOT of radio and have to agree with you. Most of the morning DJ shows used to make me mad enough to want to call in and bitch at someone, lol. I think that's why they are so obnoxious - it drives up the audience. Changed cars a couple years ago to better accommodate heavy road travel and the new one came with Sirius. It is so nice, I never listen to regular radio anymore.

    Mmmm XM radio would be nice. Someday...someday... We are hoping that if we take good care of the Civic, it could be traded in someday. Maybe a hybrid, if we're still commuting a lot at that point, otherwise something economical for travel.

    Oh snap, it's Father's Day weekend coming up. Gotta find good cards for Hulky's dad and mine. Maybe my dad would like to help change the brake fluid in Hulky's car with me? I think he has a home-made pump device that makes the fluid easier to flush. Otherwise, I will see if I can help with pool prep. They got new filter fins for the pool pump, but we are almost 1 month away from the party and our pool takes a while to get clean (slow efforts) & warm up reasonably (it is always cold).

    Your dress is amazing! You're going to look absolutely stunning! Strange, my fear with strapless bras was always that the dress would fall down (or below the bra). The bras are always fitted so tightly they can't fall down (also, you have to be a determined breather). And they have a wide variety of padded strapless bras.

    Okay, next time I want to make gluten-free pizza, I'm going to try a different crust mix. I could limit myself to a slice a meal, but that's no fun. Gluten-free is not enough. This stuff is not friendly like the pancake mix, which is tapioca, potato, and rice flour (maybe a little almond meal). This stuff has sorghum flour and a bunch of real grain gluten-free flours. At least I know for sure that stuff does not sit well with me. I'll have to talk to Hulky about that so maybe I can pick out the gluten-free cake mix he uses for me (if he makes me a cake).

    We had hot Italian sausages last night. They didn't burn my mouth much, but my stomach burned once they got there. I told Hulky and he said, "Sounds like IBS." I don't think IBS really has anything to do with the stomach, but perhaps I do have low stomach acid. Unfortunately, the HCL I have is way too strong and gives me really terrible heartburn when I use it. I guess I'll keep an eye out for a lower dose and pick up a bottle to try at some point. Not wasting my money on a bottle of 300+ doses again!

    Anyway, I do think I have IBS, but to me it's kind of a catch-all term for inflammation of the bowels. I mean, there's no one cause or cure for it. I just have to identify my food triggers and keep eating well. Part of me still wants that "official" diagnosis, but I know it won't do anything for me except give me a leg to stand on if I need to argue my way of eating to someone.

    Long story short, my gut is pretty swollen today. I don't get the gluten-gut like some people do, I don't "look pregnant" or anything. It's just a feeling of pressure in my lower gut and slight distention there from my gut actually being inflamed. I could not put on my higher-waist pairs of pants today, but my low-waist Old Navy jeans fit fine.

    Blah, blah, blah. I am sick of the rain and looks like it's going to continue into next week.

    Good news: I think I managed to fit buying a radiator for the Mustang into the budget. We'll find out at the end of the month if I was wrong. The radiator should be here by sometime next week.

    Sounds like your paying close attention to what your body is doing in response to the foods you eat. That's the best thing you can do. Then when you find a trigger make sure you don't have that again.

    My all protein diet is working great to control my diarrhea so far. 13 days in and I can pin-point every episode to a certain food or beverage. At least I know now that high fat doesn't work for me - and I can't take magnesium in any form - and more than one rum/diet coke is going to cause issues the next day. A small portion of green beans didn't effect me at all I'm not ready to start adding in more stuff yet --- I'm enjoying the pain-free/diarrhea-free world I've found!

    Tomi, I'm glad you've got something work so well for you, at last!

    Hair: Okay, my scalp is not doing as well as I thought/hoped. Frankly, it stinks! I think I need to try some kind of essential oil treatment (some kind of blend with tea tree oil) for a few days to a week, see if it's some kind of fungal thing that keeps my scalp flaking and the sebum from building up so much. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with the hard water at the apartment. Making my own mixture is going to be pricey, thought it would probably last a while. Time to do some research.

    Apartment: The rent is going up this fall, but they are getting insulation blown in next week on our floor so this winter should cost MUCH less to heat the place. Very excited about that. The extra $50/mo from each of us should be nothing compared to what we'll save in heating. It was exciting to tell the land lady about our impending nuptials (since the lease will need my updated last name) too. Can't believe I'm so close to being Mrs. Hulky! Anyway, this means we REALLY should get a washer & dryer. It's hard to arrange because, even if my mom can cover costs (she offered last Winter), we need help moving them to and from a vehicle (too heavy for me to help), and a vehicle to move them in (C has a '79 VW bus that's stripped inside so there's plenty of space, but he's not really readily available). Scheduling is a bitch when you don't have transportation or muscle at the ready. Being able to squat/lift 90 lbs (guessing about half the weight of either machine) someday would be pretty badass, but I don't think I can manage that this summer.

    I wonder if you cut out ALL grains - maybe that would help your scalp issues? You could try it for a good month and see what happens?
