– I made Page Six of The New York Post yesterday.
– As Steve Martin says in the “The Jerk”…I’M SOMEBODY NOW.
– But the boneheads called me “a celiac victim”.
– I’m a lot of things, but victim is NOT one of them.
– Celiac sufferer? Ok. Celiac survivor? Sure. Celiac wise-ass? Totally.
– But I’m no victim (and neither are you).
– On top of that, the article is full of lies about the Jennifer Esposito episode. CBS is not working to get her back on the show and Jennifer does not want to go back.
– CBS is slime.
– The most insidious headline through this whole fiasco goes to the folks at AlterNet with this beauty: “Network Splits with Actress Over Gluten: Is Celiac a Real Malady or a Dietary Choice?”
– No, seriously…that’s actually the headline.
– There is a petition on Change.org for CBS to either get Jennifer back to work or release her from her contract. Please sign it here.
– The gluten-free food market is now estimated to be worth $4.2 billion.
– This is not a good thing. We don’t need more gluten-free crackers. We need more awareness.
– InspiredRD has written a wonderful, heartfelt post about living with celiac disease. Please send some positive vibes her way.
– I continue to shed the pounds being 90% Whole30.
– So much that there is a small part of me that’s actually getting a wee bit concerned.
– I haven’t been this thin since I ran 26 marathons in 26 days.
– I never ran a marathon.
– I’ve had asparagus 47 straight days.
– Our FDA labeling laws suck and until our government starts governing “for the people” and not “for big business”, it will never change.
– We have five days left to get 9,000 signatures on a petition to Finalize Standards for GLUTEN-FREE Labeling. Please sign it here.
– I caught hell from a number of people about my “Stop Eating Gluten-Free Foods” post.
– I’m not sure why. I wasn’t telling anybody what to do…just what worked amazingly for me.
– It’s a complex relationship we have with food.
– Don’t tweet angry. Nothing good ever comes from it.
– Celiac.com has an ad on their home page for a product that “aids in your recovery from celiac disease”.
– I wish celiac.com would focus more on awareness and less on clicks and sales.
– I have a random riddle.
– The man who invented it doesn’t want it. The man who bought it doesn’t need it. The man who needs it doesn’t know it. What is it?
– A coffin.
– I love this article titled “The Four Types of Gluten-Free Living“. If you can get to Stage 3, your body will be thankful.
– Wake me up when Election Day is over.
– I’m in the mood for a great movie tonight to go with my sushi and Tito’s. Any suggestions?
– Happy Friday everyone!
