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?

Oh yeah...half a mil...uhhhhhhh.

I can barely think about like half a..thousand...

I thot ETA usually = Estimated Time of Arrival. Mebbe we could add both to the abbreviation thread?  ;)

I just caught up with this thread, I've been reading for about half an hour. It makes my brain, too, go bonkers. I've gotten distracted away from half the things I wanted to comment on. Oh well.

Today I will make an attempt at minestrone, because I have cute stelline pasta I want to use. And a leek to use up. Maybe I'll have to attempt some bread to dunk in my soup.

This is my first weekend-on-the-weekend - no more Tuesday-to-Saturday schedule for me!.... and I don't know what to do with myself. I made a purdy rainbow necklace yesterday out of big random foil beads.  :)

Today I went thrift store shopping - got some used (but in perfectly good condition) yoga blocks, a bag full of clothes and shoes for $5 (2 pairs of sandals, 1 pair of pants, 3 shirts, and a slip), and also a book (The Kite Runner).  :bear2: <-- This guy's really happy that I got a lot of neat stuff for cheap. Look at him, he's jumping for joy!

I checked out some used breadmachines - there were three at one store, really cheap, but I couldn't make up my mind. I'm searching online for manuals for them, and will go back to the store next week to make my final decision.

That's what I did today. Hum dee dum.

By the way, you are all officially friends with Dreena Burton by extension. Yes!

I live in northern california, amongst the redwoods. No cities anywhere near me, and it's usually cold. Like sometimes too cold. Except right now...we're having a HEATWAVE. It's not supposed to do this here!! It's supposed to be foggy, and gray, and kinda dreary. It hasn't rained in weeks, which is SO weird. It's been in the 90's. And I just got finished w/ my 3rd day in a row at work. yay, tomorrow I get to sleep in!! It's been nuts at work. It's the weekend, but not any weekend, Grad weekend, there's a full moon, we're having a heatwave, and people are being really dumb. So glad to be home.

You're welcome.  capture taught me.  I'm just passing it on.

:o  Egads!  75 degrees there is way too hot.  90!?!  It sounds like some long days.  I'm happy you get to sleep in tomorrow and have a break from the madness, if not the heat.

Anytime Patrick and I go to any social gathering (party, etc.) we just talk to each other..and stay away from others..and wait until we can leave.....I think we're on the path toward companion....reclusive..ness...

This is what people do? Stand around and chit chat? Do you all enjoy this??  :o

I'm feeling negative! AND I don't think anyone else touched my focaccia...they were all raving about the cheeseball and meatballs..
