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:

I have to pack to go back home too. But I'd waaay rather do that than study for ochem right now.

I swear the mini-clifbars are a different formulation. the chocolate chip kind tastes 10x more like a chocolate chip cookie.

I'm the spider-evicter for my dorm.

I'm clearing my house out of all unused, unneeded things.  I have a lot of crap.  Exhibit 1:  I have eight juice glasses that I haven't used since I bought them in 2004.

I did a lot of cleaning today in this crazy heat. Right now, I am looking forward to going home, making some Black Mango Iced Tea and walking around the house in my underwear.

any other heavy sleepers?

Earthquakes, fire alarms, general loudness from the surrounding dorm area (once I'm asleep) and once when I was a kid and I had poison oak, I was scratching in my sleep, so my mom came into my room and put socks on my hands so I wouldn't make the skin bleed. I then had a dream where I was standing in a parking lot, and someone walked up to me and put mittens on me, so I took them off, also taking off the socks that were actually on my hands. It seems like it would have been easier to just wake up :)
The gunshots are very impressive, though.

can i tell some sleepwalking stories too?

ever since i was little, i've slept walked.  when i was little i would walk to where the burglar alarm trip is and set it off, the police would come and everything.  haha.  whoops.  but now that i live with my boyfriend i have many more stories.  in college, i would sing opera in my sleep, scream, one time my boyfriend found me standing on my bed looking for "the pipes" that "came out of the wall", i've talked with my boyfriend on the phone in my sleep saying that i would call him right back, but never calling him back, that would make him really mad because he would stay up forever waiting for my call then the next day ask about it and i have no recolllection of even using the phone, some of those times i would fall asleep with my phone in my hand waiting for him to call, never realizing he had called and wake up angry that he forgot about me.  the first night living in the dorms, i woke up with my door wide open... a couple months ago my boyfriend and i woke up and he told me that he had fun last night, i said doing what?  he said that we woke up, started talking and started making out... this i did not remember.  now whenever i have any sort of sex dream, i always ask him if we did it.  haha.  there are some others, but he remembers them better than i do.

Glad you asked.  ;D  Actually, no one here probably knows what I'm talking about:  soaps!

On Hollyoaks (a British evening soap), John Paul came out during high school and had a crush on his best friend, Craig.  Craig had a girlfriend, Sarah.  Craig eventually got into a relationship with JP while continuing to see Sarah, who - this being a soap - caught JP & Craig together during her and Craig's engagement party.  Craig publically chose to be with JP and they were going to move to the city together, but JP ended up staying behind.

So, months of nothing going on later, John Paul has romatic tension with Father Kieron, a young Catholic priest - again, this being a soap.  After a lot of back and forth, they finally decide to have a secret relationship (JP was done with being a "dirty little secret" after the fallout of his and Craig sneaking around behind Sarah).

Father Kieron rents a room from Niall, who is secretly John Paul's half brother.  Their mother gave Niall up for adoption after she got pregnant as a teen.  Niall knows and has come to town to do havok on the McQueen family in revenge.  He also has a thing for Steph, Craig's sister.  Niall is a hair dresser and Steph was his model for a hair competition.  They were supposed to be out celebrating making it to the finals, so JP and Kieron were at Niall's and Kieron's flat.  Unbeknownst to them, Niall invites Steph back to the flat and makes his move on the couch when JP and Kieron come out of the bathroom wearing only towels.

The future plot is already known to the viewers.  Niall will kill Kieron and make it look like a suicide in order to torment John Paul.  I think the contract for the actor who plays John Paul is up soon, so maybe in a fit of depression, JP will leave town.
