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, when i move into my new place in august i am allowed to paint!
i am still thinking about it. i mean, it would cost money and i hate spending money, also, whenever i move out (who knows when this will be) i will have to paint it back.
i have always thought it would be fun to 'mural' a wall.

We can't have any paint..that's a good idea though, KMK.

I have two questions that I actually want answered...so don't get too aimless.

1. Has anyone else ever played Donkey Konga or Donkey Konga 2 on gamecube??? It's my absolute favorite game from any system...I just want to chat with a fellow donkey konga-er.

2. What's with the front page vegweb friends pictures? Is it like the side panel food pictures..where they are different ones for people? Or does everyone see the same front page avatars at certain times? What makes it so that an avatar will be displayed on the front page? Mine was there continuously for weeks..but I didn't know if it was just b/c it was me...so I could see it..or what. It's not there anymore though. Splain this to me.

1.  I've only played it on Super Nintendo.  I love DK. 
2.  I've never had my pic on the front page, from what I've seen.  I would guess that it is randomly generated when you visit?  So everyone sees something different?  Who knows.  Maybe Y just picks whoever she thinks is prettiest.  ;D

Donkey Kong or Donkey Konga? You need to play Donkey Konga...it's so much better than Guitar Hero! You have these bongos..and play a long with different songs.
I think I've seen your picture on there before....not often though...so it can't be the pretty thing.  ^-^

My husband is obsessed with fruit.

I already do not get anything done because of vegweb. Thanks for distracting me further.

I second the fact that KMK would be on the front if it were a beauty contest.

Ohhhh, I mean Donkey Kong.  But I know what you're talking about with the Donkey Konga.  Nope, never played it.

Aw, y'all are sweet!  We are all beautiful here!  :-*

I'm going to bed now.  Night night!

P.S.  So this is basically just the same this as the chat room.  Chat room in non-real time.

Seriously? I guess I'll have to give the chat a go semetime.

I know what I'll do..to solve the front page avatar....question. Whenever someone is ready, we'll both go look and see if we have the same avatars...right then. So, whomever wants to do it..let me know...and when I see that you want to..we'll do it..and then we'll know!

So, what was I saying?

My living room and dining room are "peanut butter", Kitchen is "lightly lemon", bathroom is "hint of mint". My bedroom is "dark cream" (sorry, not vegan  :P) and guest room #1 is "mellow margarita". Though I am painting my upstairs (study and guest room #2) more of a sea foam, the colors I picked were very food oriented.

HI EVERYONE.

I am about to go get wasted on margaritas. Then I'm going home to make drunken cupcakes. It'll be a good night

Don't fall asleep! I did that once boiling macaroni, I woke up four hours later to a house full of smoldering pasta smoke. It took many weeks for the smell to go away

I love your friends' photo collage.  Beautiful!

I think to have your pic in the vegfriends area you have to  be a "subscriber".  I'm not, and have never seen my profile there, so maybe that's the reason.  I'm not an official VegFriend.  :'(

As for the food pics on the side, it has to do with when we are online.

I did that with ramen noodles once, which you'd think would be hard to do since they only boil about 2 minutes!  Terrible smell and destroyed my soup pan.

whenever i come on at home, i'm always the first profile shown! I hate it!
if i look at vegweb from another computer and im not signed in, my profile is not there. it must have to do with if you are signed on or not?

Another vote for color.  We have walls that are red, orange, yellow, and blue (so far.  I'm painting the living room and office green.  I have pics on My Space. myspace dot com / realtordominique.  Yea for color!

Naw, that can't be because my pic has been up everytime that I've looked at the main page.  I usually go directly to the forums page because that's what I have bookmarked on my work computer.  I go to the main page with my home computer but during the work week I don't visit in the evenings/night.
I ain't one of the prettiest by a long shot.   :-D

Toally topic change--but it's on my brain!

So I make pancakes once or twice a week--i love them so much, there are yummy and a nice change from oatmeal--today I just could not make them right! I think I put in too much soy milk--they didn't seem runny--but they would not cook up--tey would just burn on the outside and stay mushy in the inside and when I would try to flip them they would just fall apart--I only ended up getting one out of the whole batch and it really sucked! I'm so cranky--my breakfast is my pre-workout meal--so now I'm going to have a shitty work out :( *WAAAAAAA*

OK--end of whine--please continue (and yeah! food inspired colours for your house! Love it!)
