I find all kinds of interesting things online. Old friends through free whitepages type sites. Some elusive item that either I or someone I know wants. A really interesting recipe.
I like to think of this as a challenge. Can I find it? How fast can I do it? Where’s the best coupon code? It’s finding pieces of a puzzle and then trying to put them together when you don’t always know what the final product is supposed to look like. I don’t know why I love that kind of stuff, but it’s right up my alley.
But I never really thought much about this knack of mine until May of 2011 when I became allergic to corn and all its derivatives. It was a pretty serious reaction, but not quite anaphylactic. I immediately put myself on an elimination diet and started keeping a food journal to figure out what caused my esophagus to swell. Then I hit the web. Before I could even get in to see an allergist, I had found a wealth of information online….a list of all the corn derivatives, several blogs and a few online groups.
I hope to post some of cool things here as I find them. The subjects of my findings will be all over the place, just like the title of my blog (hopefully) indicates. 🙂
