November 23rd, 2008

This morning when I got up and left for work I grabbed my cup of chocolate soy milk. Mmmm... I have a dairy allergy so I drink soy milk instead of regular milk. The proteins in milk, whey and casein, cause me to break out in an itchy rash. I've had this allergy all my life, and I always have to clarify the difference between lactose intolerance and a dairy allergy. Some people even think that being lactose intolerant is having a dairy allergy, but the fact is they have problems processing dairy, as where with my allergy I can process dairy fine, it just makes me break out. Some people have worse reactions, like trouble breathing and some sort of organ failure, which makes their allergy much worse. I can manage my allergy pretty well, by limiting the amount of dairy I eat/drink (dairy is a staple in American food, good luck not ingesting any) and by taking allergy meds year round.

But I digress from what I was talking about.... I was drinking my soy milk while at work (while typing this) and I noticed a funny odor coming from my drinking glass. It has a lid, so that I can transport my drink without spilling. Overnight, the lid had absorbed the smell of onions (yuck) while in the fridge. The onion smell came from a steak and cheese my dad had for dinner, and it filled the fridge with the smell. My soy milk tastes fine, the smell of onions when I take a drink is quite unnerving.

My friend Ashleigh has started posting pics from the photographer at her wedding on her myspace and this one surfaced of Mark and I. It's a great pic, but I should have smiled more. Truth was I was eating cake, and didn't want to smile and have cake stuck to my teeth somewhere. LOL

Here's another one, it's of the dance floor. I have no idea what I was doing, possibly dancing. But if I were to judge from the pic, it looks like I am trying to shout something, or elbow my invisible friend. LOL My friend Jill and the bride, Ashleigh, are in the pic too.
