    I had a nasty case of gemulitis – that put a hurtin on my credit card bill, let me tell you. It was very painful!
    Silly Chick! Mar’s wireless!

    very clever pick!!!

  3. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    Thanks – that gemulitis is a nasty one – def leaves a mark!! HAHAHA! :O

  4. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    I read of unleashment!! So proud that you were able to defeat your techno-challenge!
    So, you can take the computer anywhere, huh? ;)

  5. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    it does leave a mark – my husband still reminds me of what a nasty case of gemulitis it was!

  6. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I can go anywhere – I’m free! I cannot claim credit for this. Two hours on the phone with customer support got me here – but hey, that’s something in and of itself, right?

  7. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    I shudder to think of the untoward places a wireless computer may be taken if I had one! It would take this obsession to whole new level…a bad, bad level! It is good to have this wonderful Freshilla Pichosis support group to lean on – it being incurable and all! Sorry – like a dog with a bone, I am!

  8. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Right! Hoping my “gemulitis” isn’t too serious, but looking that way.
    Fun pick, and love the word play.

  9. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    We all struggle with this infection, Happy Chick…You are not alone! Thanks a bunch!! :)

  10. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I’m not aware of a cure – even treatment is usually ineffective

  11. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Silly Chick — This is a gorgeous pick! I love all the different jaspers together!

    Smoky Rose Chick — Finally, a diagnosis for what ails me! Is there a support group or a 12-Step Program? Actually, I’m not sure I want to be cured! I just need to figure out a way to create Fresh Picks and chat with the Chicks without shopping! :-)

  12. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Would chatting with the Chicks be called “Chick Chat?” ROTFL :-)

  13. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    But I WANT some new beads every so often– actually the oftener, the better…Uh-oh. I think I’ve got a bad case.
    You drink de lime wit de coconut and drink it all up…another golden oldie!
    Guess you know my favorite music stations now.

  14. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    It would indeed, LE…

    Good for you…admitting you have a problem is the first step!! But, alas, the cure is worse than the disease!!

  15. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I think the treatment is worse than the disease, actually – particularily if you can get to the mailbox before your husband does!
    Lynn, you find a way to Chick Chat (LOL) and pick withOUT shopping, you let me know……

  16. Fashion Chick aka SC
    Fashion Chick aka SC says:

    Excellent play on words!

  17. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Oh , no! Someone else beats her man to the mailbox when she has an order expected?
    But they can’t fuss if they don’t see the box. Right?

  18. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    please! between qvc and lima…. I like make a deal with the mail man to hide packages around the yard and stuff vs on the porch!

  19. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    I try to beat my SON to the mailbox. He needs to graduate so I don’t have to worry about him getting the mail all the time… I’d settle for him just taking out the trash.

  20. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    You are so baaad! R doesn’t make a fuss about the beads as long as I promise to be in a good mood when he gets home…May as well ask for me to look like Sandra Bullock (his fave) – That ain’t hapenin either!

  21. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Glad to hear I’m not the only one checking the mail first! Lol Now if I could just find some good hiding places for those LB boxes… :-)

  22. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    Oh dear – Beaders on the down low! ;)

  23. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    I save the boxes and recycle them to mail jewelry gifts, etc. Just a thought.

  24. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Shannon, could you have your R talk to my R? I think I like that deal!
    Yeah, the tell tale packing peanuts – there’s always a stray peanut that gets away…. and gives away… :(

  25. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Oh, Mary, you are so right about those peanuts! We could write a mystery novel and call it “The Case of the Telltale Packing Peanut.” LOL :-)

  26. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Happy Chick, I actually do recycle my boxes via mailings, gift giving, etc. But where to store them?!?!

  27. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    I’m eating a rice cake that tastes like a packing peanut!

    If hiding the evidence is an issue, storage must be an obscure and totally odious location – like where the vacuum cleaner is or the laundry room -

  28. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Just don’t try hiding them in the oven unless you check it first before pre-heating! LOL

  29. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I’m starving! maybe I could dip a packing peanut in salsa?………

  30. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Everything tastes better dipped in salsa, Smoky Rose! :-) Well, maybe not beads.

  31. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    Now you mention salsa – I’m done with the rice packing cakes already…Next time!!

    You crack me up Lynn Eileen!!!

    I need to nibble while I pick/post…Diet DP and rice cakes just don’t hit the spot!!! I need a choc chip cookie but it’s too late to bake…Urghhhh…

  32. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    no, that doesn’t hit the spot at all. I had left over pizza for supper – very good – Greek pie, but I’m still hungry.

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    I now know what is wrong with me.
    I have EACH AND EVERY ONE of those diseases. It’s great to finally be diagnosed. Not sure I want a cure but I also wish I could Chick Chat without buying.
    AND I am so releaved and LMAO that we ALL try to get to the mailbox before the hubby gets home and we ALL try to hide the evidence.
    WE NEED a 12-step program. Unfortunately I think when we all got together all we would do is encourage each other find even sneakier ways to hide our addiction.
    What’s a beader to do? lol ;-)

  34. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Yup, Sweet Chick, I think your right! I know I have all the symtoms myself!! Cute pick!! I’m hot ready for a 12 step program though, Give me another 20 years or so…………lol!!

  35. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    That’s “not”, not “hot”….. See what happens just thinking about being cured!!

  36. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    This is great! I have the cure for some of these conditiond, Check out LimaBeads are good for you. LOL

  37. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Gaaaaa! It’s sooo good to know there’s others buying Lima beads on the sly! When you think you’re the only one… was thinking of therapy. The Bead Machine has been my downfall, I can’t even look.

    MY hubby has resorted to checking the credit card balance online. So I can’t even race him to the mailbox. :( I’ve been banned from purchases till June. It’s gonna be a long month. Checking fresh picks is my only release!

  38. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Oh, Silly Chick, you have many of my favorites in this pick! Definitely a favorite! And your sense of humor is fantastic! I suffer from all the diseases!

  39. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    you too, Lori?
    you’ve been banned till June?! I’m sorry – I’m laughing, but not at you, with you! A package came the other day – my husband says ‘I thought I asked you to lay off for a while’ – I said, I am, I am, I ordered this before the moretorium (sorry for the spelling, I’d rather chat that grab Websters…)

  40. No Photo
    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    I can order whenever I want, (but there’s a catch, as long as I have the exact amount of cash)!

  41. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Mine too!!! Lima box arrives and he said I thought you were going to be good… When!?!

    So now it’s a complete dry spell. I laugh at me too, really thought I was sick, but it’s good to hear I’m not alone!

  42. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    you’re not alone – be sure of that! funny!

  43. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    tell ya, I married later… never in a million years thought I’d have to ‘lie’ and come up with clever stories to shop – men……… they just don’t get it!

  44. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    I didn’t have a problem till I found Lima. (well, ok, I did – but not THIS bad!) Silly Chick hit the nail on the head, I think it’s infectious.

    This could become my “theme pick”.

  45. Karen H aka Fancy Chick
    Karen H aka Fancy Chick says:

    Hi, My name is Karen, I’m single and I have a beading addiction. I try to limit myself and put myself on restriction, but then I talk myself into a good excuse for bead buying yet again. I tell myself there are worse things I could be addicted to!!!! I got my latest gigantic LB order yesterday and nearly squealed with delight!!

  46. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Hey, Karen! Rationalization is another symptom! Ha, kidding! It’s like Christmas when that box arrives. You’re right, there’s worse to be hooked on!

  47. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Hi Karen, My name is Mary. I’ve been beading for two years and I too, have an addiction. Driving, laying in bed trying to get to sleep, at budget meetings at work, all I can think about is beading. Oh my gosh, that’s exactly what I told my husband – between beads and talking to you girs, I said, look! you got it easy, babe – there are a lot of other things I could be spending time and money on!!!!

  48. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    it is! driving home from work thinking, ‘I wonder if my package came today!’ – the traffic is even less annoying – you don’t notice the bad weather – you just wanna get home and find a white box on the porch! Now look at that – when you look at it that way – LB packages are very healthy! – we don’t see the bad in the world – only the beauty of the new beads! You know, we’re good for society!

  49. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Yep, I’d rather play with beads than pop pills to feel good! Much healthier! Except I don’t think I’d stockpile anti-d like I do beads…

  50. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I keep telling my husband, that I’d need less anti-d, if I could have more beads:) – hey, I’ll try any angle I think’ll work……

  51. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Good line Mary! Gotta run now, too much screen time! Have a great day & stay healthy!

  52. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    have a good day, Lori! :)

    You chicks are the livin’ end!!

  54. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Shannon’s here! Hey, girl!

  55. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    So relieved to hear I’m not the only one who has been captivated by the evil BGBM! LOL Do love those white boxes, do hate those credit card bills! My hubby said the Easter Egg Hunt was my downfall because that’s when I really got hooked. Sad, but true. :-)

  56. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    look at it this way – the Egg Hunt, beading, it’s all stuff that feeds our minds! keeps us creative and vibrant! – maybe not, I’ve tried this with my husband – he just rolls his eyes at me….

  57. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Like the others, I figure I could have worse vices!!! LOL At least that’s my rationalization! :-)

  58. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    exactly! Lynn, Look – Funny Chick is processing your Chick application!

  59. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I know — I’m so excited!!! :-)
