The official, amazing, aimless chitchat thread.

So this is where we go to make small talk that doesn't really fit into other threads.
It's the thread with no attention span!

Frequent, arbitrary changes of topic are encouraged.  In fact, they are mandatory.

So, I was just thinking, wouldn't it be awesome to have the decor in each room of your house be inspired by a food?  Like, I was cutting up eggplant today, making my accidental eggplant chips, and I though, wow, this eggplant looks so pretty against this green plate!  I would love to  have a room inspired entirely by eggplant colors.  And then I thought there could be ones inspired by mangoes and apples and sweet potatoes and pretty much any other pretty food.

Hey, a friend of mine made these really awesome mosaics of all her food pictures based on color.  THIS is what I mean:

So, what was I saying?

I sprained my ankle and am on crutches, which is really a sight to see. My kids have started hiding their toes, LOL!

Oh and I'd love to see the pic of the blanket! What a sweet roomie you are! :)

Smart! In terms of both the vinegar solution and to making banana pancakes!

I can't sleep.  I woke up at 4:30a and decided it was a good time to (me: pet, him: molest) Cat.  He seems so fluffy now, but maybe that's because he's so skinny.

Also, I discovered that I may be able to afford a dive in my favorite part of town.  The homes there start for a little under half a mil, but with the housing market slump they're way down from there.  They are small, older homes on streets with large, established trees and back yards.  Those of you in other parts of the country may not understand how unique that is.  Most of the housing options in SoCal look like this:

eta:  The birds are exceptionally loud this morning.

I finished a wordsearch this morning, re-rinsed my laundry in vinegar, and...

... am now officially a friend of Dreena Burton! We've been exchanging emails - I can't wait to get my copy of ed&bv, and start cooking and baking up a storm! Dreena (notice how I just use her first name? Hee!) said that if I have any questions about the recipes, I could just ask. We're buds (well... not really, but sort of).

I used to hate goggle headaches when I worked in the lab - they were awful.

That would be sweet, HH!  I could never afford SoCal.  I can barely afford the Midwest  ;D

Let us know if you start looking.

You'll all have to hear about the tribulations of my trying to sell my house first!  Realistically, I don't need to walk away with more money than I paid for my house and similar homes are listing for about 70 grand more than what I paid for mine, so if I get an offer for less and the agent takes a cut I'll still be in good shape.
