    Thx for the laugh this morning! I love your humor…most of the time. Sometimes NOT appropriate at all!!

    Keep up the great work! I’m proud of of you!

    PS. We use Charmin toilet paper.

      Charmin UltraSoft should the the official TP of Celiacs. I don’t know why they don’t jump on the marketing bandwagon, too.:)

    LOL! Who ARE you? How did you get to meet George Clooney at the Oscars?!?!?

    Congratulations on your award. Your speech is truly heartwarming, and I hope you get to give it on national television someday.

    Your speech deserves it’s own Oscar. I laughed so hard my belly hurts. You are amazing. I send you many blessings, and no I’m not an old lady.
    TY for all your struggles and your fight for us celiacs. You have given me a better outlook to living with celiac.

      Somebody on FB said I should have been holding a bottle of Tito’s Vodka instead of an Oscar. I’m so disappointed I didn’t think of that first.

    Wow, I know a celebrity! I may never wash my touch pad again! Seriously, this is amazing and well deserved. We all keep following you because you make a great contribution to the celiac community. It’s nice to know that someone of your status understands what it feels like on those days we look like we swallowed a pumpkin. At the same time, I’m sorry you do. I’m saddened by how many people know how this disease can restrict and disrupt your life!

    Please, keep doing what you’re doing and we, the fans, will be here!!!

    Much love Gluten Dude.

      They weren’t getting me off that stage until I finished my speech. I got hell from the higher ups backstage.

    Congrats on your award! Always great words to read and great graphics to go with them!

    And “elite celiac” ??
    ….does that mean it’s way cool to have celiac?

    1. 12.1

      Sue In Alberta

      Pretty much the coolest, Kathie! Not being celiac is SO yesterday.
      So just get out there and spread your coolness.

    Gluten Dude you have helped me get out of my funk about getting diagnosed. No one thought I should get angry and pissed off. Even the dietician thought I needed therapy because on the bottom of the page of my food diary I wrote in capital letters “I HATE THIS DIET!!!!!!”. Its not sunshine and rainbows to have this disease as it impacts you for the rest of ones life. Now I found my groove with eating mostly a Paleo diet. You help us and we need to get pissed off and feel a little sorry for ourselves and then we can move on. My diet is not second nature but first nature. I am happier. Go get em Gluten Dude—we are counting on it.

    1. 13.1

      Gluten Dude

      Yep…I know we’re all supposed to be giddy that we found a reason for our suffering. But I was pissed just the same. But yes…get angry…and then move on and think positive.

    When you got to “thank the woman behind the scenes, the one who keeps me sane…” I started to blush, then you got to “puts up with all my sh*t…. and I knew you meant Mrs. D.

    I’m proud of you and I am happy being another “a$$hole celiac” who loves you.

    (P.S. I do not think she called us elite, Dude, she said “entitled” :)
    and yes, our group crowns have been ordered. We can practice balancing them on our heads )

    (P.P.S. I am the one who uses the phrase “celiac elitist” to describe celiacs who look upon NCGIs as if they are “not really as important”
    and I don’t like that at all. Makes me get all pissy and want to rant, which you have allowed me to do from the very first day you recognized me for the “trendy person” I am .)

    (P.P.S.S. Hope you got a kiss from Clooney for me!! .)

    P.P.S.S.S.and I have no clue if there even IS such a thing
    as P. P. S. S. S., but one last thing:….

    You deserve it. I know how hard you work on this blog. I know you really and truly want to help people with Celiac and NCGI and all that comes with it —-the funny, sad, pathetic, scary, and the often infuriating.
    Keep up the good work and big congrats, my friend. ;)

      Gluten Dude

      Dang…that’s right…entitled, not elite.

      You, my friend, are such a key component to this community and am blessed to have you on my side.

      And I did indeed get a wet one from George.

      1. 16.1.1



        Thanks, although I have had a few people call me some rather unpleasant names too.
        oh well. least I am in good company! But we really need some cushy bar stools in here…..

    Great job Gluten Dude. I’m happy to say I put in my vote for the winner. I guess I should have bought a lottery ticket the same day!
    Whenever I’m needing a laugh, I know I can head over to your blog and get one, or two, like today.
    Congrats on the well-deserved win.

    Love the speech. Maybe you could celeb endorse Charmin Ultra. Wait. no, not a good idea.

    Jake: Why is your head exploding?
    Charlie: Well, I drank a little too much wine last night.
    Jake: If it makes you feel bad, why do you drink it?
    Charlie: Nobody likes a wiseass, Jake.
    Jake: You have to put a dollar in the swear jar. You said “ass.”
    Charlie: Tell you what… here’s twenty. That should cover me until lunch.
