I have no idea why I am doing this lately and it's freaking me out.
Acid feflux perhaps?

Sitting next to the gf for...1-2 hours and we haven't said anything to each other due to the fact that we're both playing with our phones ~_~.

Thing is, I've NEVER had this before in the past. ever.

And it isn't just like that burning or something that Boyfriend, who has it, describes. It's actual vomit.

Boyfriend and I are game maniacs so he can go a few hours barely chattering to each other while he plays xbox and I am like "LOL FARMVILLE GAME TEEHEE"


In other news, lettuce wraps.


Also got this new Lavender black tea.purty good.

I haven't had reflux until I was around 23, then it lasted for a while until I did dietary changes and changed my sleeping position (I can't sleep on my left side anymore, it feels like I'm dying if I lay down that way).

Chances are, it *is* acid reflux --- there isn't much else that gives the sensation you describe.

Well sonofabitch.

I ought to start cutting out soda I imagine. Since there isn't really anything else regularly in my diet I can think of. I eat sandwiches most of the time. Sometimes my fun little Japanese meals. Nothing I can think of besides soda that has a lot of acidity to it.

The fruits I eat aren't usually high acid fruits like apples either.

But. Soda. hnnng.


Edit: Looked up heartburn/acid reflux and it could very well be brought on by all the pop I drank as a kid (I used to drink 4 cans or more a day in high school) as well as possibly exacerbated by my recent weight gain.

I thought you cut it out --- but yes, soda is not helping your reflux. A can once in a while with a meal is fine --- but stop buying it. Stopping having a can of 7-u with every meal helped tremendously for me.

Emmers-- maybe ween yourself off using those fruity sparkling water things? You'll still get some carbonation as well as some flavour, but it's not quite as harsh. (Also they're just delicious.)

Re: phones, Mum has been telling me for a year to pick out a smartphone. I'm not interested in the iPhone (I really hate typing on its keyboard, and I have an iPod touch for any apps I could really want anyways), so does anyone have an Android they really like?

I cut it out before A-Cen but got back to buying it when Brando started hankering for it. We both decided that we'll cut it down to one can a day and when what he already have purchased is gone we wont be buying it, or just buy a single bottle of it once in a while.

There isn't really much else I can think to cut out of my diet. I don't really eat much 'bad' food aside from the occasional special dish I make. Buh. My folks warned me that drinking all that super sugary stuff would bite me in the bottom one day.

Boyfriend has it so bad that when he lays down for bed his breath smells just fucking awful and he burps all the time. I think him finding out that I am getting the reflux too has kinda lit a fire under his butt to get healthier and treat his own reflux.


The one 'bad' thing I refuse to give up is my Boo Berry cereal.

A can a day is also a lot --- try replacing it with natural juices. Those can tasty (Though I vouch by orange juice, it's acidic and will likely not help any while you're having reflux) and the majority are good for you.

But seriously, stop buying it. No 2 liters, no 12 packs -- stop. Only consider it if you know the pack is going to last you and Brandon a month. It will do pure magic to your digestion to cut that out --- it made a world of difference to me.

I only drink some of it from time to time now, I had a 12 pack of Dr. Pepper that lasted me 5 weeks (Drinking the last can right now).

I just stumbled across this review of Borderlands 2.

First I raged, then I started laughing. Then I realised that the author was serious and laughed even harder. He thinks he's a gamer and he thinks he's a journalist at the same time, it's so adorable! ^w^

Bisected: How dare a game make me put any thought process into it, how dare it add an element of adventure, how dare it have depth, and how dare it have it's own certain charm.

If he went to school for journalism I'd laugh even more.

...I feel I've read more of an opinion piece than a review.

Of course, I feel that way about every "review" I read on games. Where the majority of the "points" seem to be a matter of personal taste.

I have some kind of Motorola Droid with a slide-out keyboard. I haven't had any problems with it to speak of, and it's been fine on the multiple occasions I've dropped it, so I guess I would say I like it. Will probably get another Droid next time I'm up for a new phone; I'd try an iPhone, but they're just so expensive.

I have the Droid Incredible 2. I've had it for a little over a year and it's still working for me.
