    My husbnad is allergic to ulfa drugs.

    Does that mean that they won't ever let you give blood, or after so many years will they figure you don't have the Mad Cow Disease??

    Great list. Mine is up!

    I love baseball, too, except my team are the Oakland A's. People are impressed about my knowledge of the team. My husband created a "monster." Haha!

    Oh, this made me laugh. how did I not see you eat prison broccoli when I lived with you?

    I can't give blood either. Ever again.

    And I think I was there the night you kissed Reid Ryan. :) That was fun.

    from what i understand, i can never give blood, until they change their standards.

    yes, kel - you were there on the reid ryan night - at palomino's!!

    My husband eats cauliflower with mayonnaise, and I thought he was the only weird one out there! :) I am also allergic to sulfa drugs...they give me makor hives!

  • At 10:56 AM, Blogger Heather said…

    Makor was supposed to be major! :)

  • At 11:49 AM, Blogger ...my 2 cents said…

    What are the lyrics? I've always thought they were "Gimme the beach boys and free my soul", too....

    Anyway, an interesting list there! I love reading lists like these!

    Have a great Thursday!!

    Great list. :) Hubby can't give blood in Canada either, because he was on course in the UK for six months during the mad cow scare.

    Happy TT. :)

    my 2 cents: the lyrics are "gimme the beat boys, and free my soul"

    my husband had a great time telling me how silly i was. but i'm soooo glad to know that i'm not the only one who thought it was about the beach boys!!! you rock!

  • At 3:48 PM, Blogger Kelli in the Mirror said…

    I thought it was the beach boys too. Especially since the next line is "I wanna get lost in your rock and roll". Just makes sense.

    I'm not allergic to sulfa drugs, but they make me violently ill. #2-GROSS!!!:) Great TT. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great rest of the week.

    I thought it was "the beach boys" too.

    As for the Mad Cow Disease thing, it can take anywhere from 7 to 20 years or even more for Mad Cow to show up in humans after you contract it. However, Americans are just being snobby and short-sighted by their regulations. The fact is that Americans are at a much higher risk than most other countries. We only test 1% of our meat for Mad Cow and follow less strict regulations that would prevent our cattle from contracting it.

    Anyway, happy belated TT.
