Abby is defined by her allergies. But I got to thinking: if Abby is allergic to as many things as she says she is, that does she eat on a pizza (I think she's lactose intolerant and isn't she allergic to tomatos?)?
In fact, what are her allergies? I know pollen, dust, shellfish, are pretty consistant. Does she have any other allergies that are consistant through the canon?
i'm not sure where to ask this (this thread seems like a good place), but is it even possible for identical twins with identical genes to be allergic to different things? this has bothered me since childhood :]

^I found this online: In Australia, the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council Twin Registry studied 3808 pairs of fraternal and identical twins. The twins were of all ages, from children to adults, and were being observed for asthma, wheezing and hay fever. The results were similar to the last study; 65 percent of the identical twins shared allergies whereas only 25 percent of the fraternal twins shared allergies.
LOL I never realized I kind of assume posters resemble their avatars to a point. I feel I should inform everyone that I do not look like a hideous UK cover illustration!
lila, i would never assume anybody looked like that :]
for me, abby is defined by how much older she seems. she's more laid back, less concerned with following all of kristy's rules, etc. she doesn't make fitting in a big priority, and i love that about her. the allergies honestly were an afterthought for me.
