Am I Lactose Intolerant?

Last year was my first year in college (last and first in the same sentence... is that right?), and by the end of the year, I started to have serious stomach issues.
That's me with stomach issues.  At first I thought it was stress because of school and studying and whatnot, so it was semi-okay . . . Well apart from the fact that I felt like I couldn't eat anything + I was never hungry.

But I thought it was pretty ridiculous when I had the same issues when I was vegetating on my couch during summer break.

Then I realized that my whole family has problems with lactose.
So I decided to cut out the lactose from my diet for a few days.  Sure enough, after a few days, I felt like I had a normal appetite again for the first time in months.

But soon after I found out my lactose problem, I was depressed because I realized ice cream has lactose in it.  I couldn't eat ice cream, my true love.

I have to be serious -- Ice cream is one of my most favorite foods in the entire world.  I don't discriminate against ice cream flavors.  I love all ice cream flavors equally, except for black licorice ice cream, which I think is the devil's ice cream.  But seriously... what were the manufacturer's thinking?  Who would ever want to eat black licorice ice cream? It's disgusting.  But, ah, that is for another post for another time.

Not being able to eat ice cream would be like cutting one of my fingers off.  So I tried to contain myself as long as possible without eating ice cream.

My self control lasted about 23 hours, 14 minutes, and 3 seconds.  Then I had to eat ice cream.

Surprisingly, I didn't have any problems.  I learned that I can have dairy, but in moderation.

So the question is... am I really lactose intolerant?

Oops . . . I haven't posted in a long time

It's been over a year since I posted.  I think this problem relates to this post here.  Anyways, what's been new since I last posted? Well, nothing really.

Movie Theatres

I went to see an okay movie recently.  But do you know what I hate? I hate it when people talk during movies.  I really want to say something obscene but I remember my manners and classily say:

But alas, I feel like that would be hypocritical.

What's even more annoying + awkward is when you see two people doing THIS right next to you:
Ahem. Sucking face.

Sharing is caring

Double dipping is a horrible thing that should never EVER happen . . . EVER.  Whenever I see a big dipping bowl/buffet tray, I get suspicious about what happened prior to my arrival. 

Eating from a double-dipped bowl/tray is like sucking face with someone in the room.  Ew.

Does this make sense?

Turkeys can fly

I live in an area where there are a LOT of turkeys.  And when I say a lot, I do mean a lot.  Every year the turkey population seems to be getting bigger and bigger too.

What I found out recently is that these wild turkeys can fly . . . at least a little.  What's even stranger is the fact that these wild turkeys form a colony and all live together in one tree -- it's like a Christmas tree, but with turkeys.  It's a Thanksgiving tree.

It's not a bad idea actually.  Why don't we have festive trees on Thanksgiving?  Why does Christmas have to be the only time that we get to decorate a tree?

Spontaneously combustible pistachios

Do you know how you sometimes look for something on the Internet, but end up finding something totally different?  Well today I ended up researching spontaneous combustion and found out that pistachios (because of their "high fat content and low water content") can spontaneously combust.

I don't know why, but now I have strange visualizations of spontaneously combustible pistachios because of this newfound information.

Ah geez.
