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?

Yes!

can we develop criteria for different levels of veganism?

or did someone do that already.

i think one level involves pocket mulching...

Wasn't there a Simpsons episode about it?  That's what I've heard.
We should make criteria.  That would be fun! 
I'd post them in my blog too.

Lisa:  My name's Lisa Simpson.  I think your protest was incredibly brave.
Jesse: Thank you.  This planet needs every friend it can get.
Lisa:  Oh, the earth is the best!  That's why I'm a vegetarian.
Jesse: Heh.  Well, that's a start.
Lisa:  Uh, well, I was thinking of going vegan.
Jesse: I'm a level 5 vegan -- I won't eat anything that casts a shadow.
Lisa:  Wow.  Um ... I started an organic compost pile at home.
Jesse: Only at home?  You mean you don't pocket-mulch? 
Lisa:  Oh, it's so decomposed!  Do you think I could join Dirt First?
Jesse: Well ... we *might* have an opening at the poser level.
Lisa:  Oh, thank you, thank you!

OK, so we know that poser level is the lowest, and level 5 means you don't eat anything that casts a shadow and you pocket mulch.  Level 8.5 means getting a personal email from Dreena Burton.

And one of the levels can be making all of the recipes from a vegan cookbook, like secondbase with Vcon.

I don't pocket mulch...so does that mean I'm closer to the poser level? I've made lots of recipes..I'm a good person..I try to be the best vegan I can be...I want to level up.

Don't worry - I don't pocket mulch either, but I'm an 8.5  ^-^ You're pretty skilled with the camera (mmm food porn...) so I'm wondering where that puts you. Maybe a 6?

Oh wait, I have 7 vegan shirts and 12 vegan buttons....I think that puts me at a 6.5.  :D

converting others should also get one points.

perhaps we can assign "points" for different tasks. and then you add up your points to see what level you are at.

owning/wearing vegan prop: two points
personal emails from vegan celebs: 5 points

and so on. all i know is after the crap that went down with modding, us exmods should get some nice pointage.

Nah, it's just for fun!  I do like the point system, since then there is no having to advance step by step.  Ooooh, I want to make vegan merit badges! 

exmods get 10 points, at least.
and each food porn pic gets you 1 point?
;D

Ok, so what about converts BECAUSE OF food pics??? And I have a vegan husband.

Hmm. So if we're rating vegan awesomeness, what's our rating scale? Is it from 1 to 10? 1 to 15?

Whoah, wait a minute. You guys are forming a coherent topic. You have gone from aimless to aimful. Leave with your aimfulness please.

On the other hand, oreos are on sale at Raley's.

Yum!

Everyone here has uber veg*n awesomeness, really.  What we SHOULD do is come up with nicknames.

I agree, this is taking away from my mind wandering aimlessness

Has anyone tried the other oreo flavours? Vanilla, strawberry, banana, peanut butter, double chocolate, or mint? I've had the vanilla, and they are super sweet, and super yummy (especially dipped in PB). But to be honest, I'm trying to quit oreos. I should make my own cookies instead... with oats and raisins, real spices, nut butters... and get back into the kitchen, instead of buying pre-made, highly processed things like oreos.

But the vanilla ones are SOOO good.  :o
