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?

any other heavy sleepers?

me, me, me!  i go to another universe, i swear.  i don't ever know what's going on, and it's bad if i fall asleep on the sofa - i can't be woken up or moved or anything.  my ex-boyfriend used to "wake" me up to get me to go to bed, and he'd actually get me talking and (sort of) walking - i'd never remember anything!  the talking thing was crazy, though - he'd tell me i'd say something really weird and nonsensical, and then he'd try to pursue the "conversation," but apparently i never made any sense, just would spew out a bunch of randomness.  he tested my "talking" several times over the years we lived together, and i'd never a single memory of any of it.  would more likely wake up the next morning wondering when/how i got into bed.  my sister won't even wake me up because she says i'm mean when i'm out like that.  of course, i remember nothing!!!!

on another aimless note, i am completely unthrilled to learn Middle English for my Chaucer course and thus am deviating on the most deviant of vegweb's distractions.  aimless.  chitchat.

ps no offense you medieval lovers.

I noticed that a couple ladies had a crush on Howard Roark...I'm interested to talk to some fellow Ayn Rand fans. Have you all read Atlas Shrugged? I assume not...or you'd have a crush on John Galt...or maybe Fransisco..or maybe Hank Rearden. Talk to me!!!

I read Ayn Rand in high school, about 20 years ago.  I don't remember all of the characters, or even the plot from Atlas Shrugged.  All I remember is that I had a crush, big time, on Howard Roark.

The Fountainhead is my favorite book although I wouldn't say I had a crush on Howard Roark.  I never read Atlas Shrugged.  I've always been afraid to read it because I feel like it couldn't possibly compare to Fountainhead and then I would be disappointed.  Stupid reason, I know.

I read The Fountainhead a few years ago...and I don't recall having a crush on him. I might have though. I have a crush on Ayn Rand books.

Ooooooh, read it!! I think it's better! It took me a few years to get into it and read it all (I started it a few years ago..but stopped). After I got past the beginning, it just got better and better. I did just read that it has 645,000 words..but it really didn't even take me that long, and I mainly just read it at night before bed. It's so thought provoking, and consuming, and sexy! Gogogogo!

Chicken is meat?!?  http://bestsmileys.com/surprised/5.gif

The next thing you know you'll be saying fish is meat, too.  Pfft.  Wouldn't that be silly.

kinda rolling with this topic...if you accidentally consume meat, do you make yourself throw up? Or do you drink a ton of water and hope you won't have diarrhea for days??
