Yikes. :(

Sorry about that. I don't like oysters... ew.

I'm with ya on that, like my buddy's dad says I don't eat the bait. Now I will tear up some calamari and shrimp, but those filter feeders I'll take a pass.

Now my mother and older brother...give them some raw oysters, some crackers and a bottle of hot sauce and they're on it!

Me and my younger brother, on the other hand:
"I only eat my oysters fried, that way I know my oyster's died...":lol:

when I had a home in South City I bought coolers full of Pt Reyes oysters, eat much raw freeze some, then later put them on the grill and eat when they pop open...I love Pt Reyes oysters...but a few years back they had red tide in the bay, that algae is toxic.

I can buy Pt Reyes oyster here in Las Vegas fresh at 99 Ranch grocery.

I love those oyster crackers, usually with chili. Can't say I've ever gotten sick from them.

My food needs to be good and dead before I'll eat it! Oysters don't have much appeal to me usually. Occasionally I'll take a shine to them.

As for allergies - I've got weird ones.

Ginger makes me hurl. Violently. Even the smell can make me feel sick.
Peppers (chilli, sweet, jalapeño, etc) make me hurl as well, but not as quickly, they need to "brew" for a little while before the full effect is known.
Evergreen trees make me itch, sneeze, break out in a rash, etc. Knowing this, I refuse to try eating pine nuts or take Buckley's.
Bee stings, never bothered me as a child, but have so more and more over the last 10 years or so.
Plastic band-aids and medical tape gives me a rash.
Aspirin doesn't sit well.

I can't do pine trees either!

Irony is an oyster fisherman with a shellfish allergy.


Keep that epinephrine close at all times.

Right!

I was the most "ironic" lobsterman on our West Coast back when I was fishing as I can't eat anything that had a shell around it! :confused:
Bummer, eh?

It wasn't TOO sad, Tim...I lived on venison for most of that year, and fresh fish which I can eat!

(Our fishing base was in the mouth of a little river on our south-west coast...25 miles from the nearest road with our only access by boat or via the local bush-pilot and his Cessna 180. In front the ocean, behind us nothing but mountains and virgin beech forest with a lot of red deer and no closed hunting season!)

The boat project is about to pick up again, after some political strife over there brought it to a halt...a very nervous time but I think that reason has won the day! I will keep you posted! Thanks for enquiring, Tim.

edit: In the meantime I'm designing a gold dredge! How about that?! :D

I don't care for any type of fish. If I do eat any my choice would be Walleye or cod.
As for allergies I am deathly allergic to wasp's and bee's. My mother found this out when I was four and was out in the yard playing and got stung by a wasp that had came out of a nest under our deck. She said she was never so scared as I was barely breathing. I break out in a mad rash from pine and evergreen trees....hows that for a woman who loves camping and the outdoors. I have to make sure to have a few epi-pens on me at all times. Although a few yrs back I was stung by something and all that seemed to have happened was a little shortness of breath and the bite swelled up quite a bit. Soooo maybe I have outgrown that allergy...mind you I won't go testing that theory lol! I have known a few people that were allergic to peanut butter as a child but seem to not have any problems as an adult. Don't know how that happens but it is a good thing to have happen. I also have a wicked allergy to metal...so that means I am a low maintenance wife....no jewelry lol! I just get really itchy and get a rash if I wear any kind. I have tried every thing on the market from hypo allergic metals gold, silver you name it and nothing works so I just don't bother or I just wear say a necklace for special events and hope I don't break out the next day. Right now I am sporting a stupid scar from wearing a silver necklace that a friend got me while we were in Mexico. It is so pretty and I just wanted to show her that I loved it.
