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?

Gross!  As if food coloring is required to get children to eat bread?!  ???

Yuh... this trend didn't really took, though. Good thing. Funny the things they put in our food just to make it "tastier" or "funnier". I'm not surprised now that people don't really know what their veggies really taste like.

on top of the heavy sleep, i sleepwalk (but only to go pee at night). i didn't know until i went to college and kept getting locked out of my room  :>

this made me think of a sleepwalk-ish story.  (yeah, i might be posting backwards and out of order, but this IS an aimless thread...)

i sleptwalk or whatever to get something to drink, but i reached in the fridge and tipped over an opened and half-full can of coconut milk.  it was glogging everywhere, and i was standing there for a few minutes before it started to reach into my consciousness.  apparently i started saying loudly, "what's that noise?  what is that?" and my ex came to check it out.  thankfully, he was kind enough to clean it up, but that was an icky mess fo sho.

hope you don't lock yourself out anymore  :)

i don't only because we don't have automatic electronic locks now.

But I can top your story.

I tend not to sleepwalk in places that I'm unfamiliar with (hazardous?) or uncomfortable in, so when I'm at my boyfriend's (he lives with his dad, dad's girlfriend, and her kids), I tend to wake up to pee (partially also because I sleep, er, in the buff there. door locked, though). One morning my boyfriend made some reference when I got up the previous night (and he was up late)... and I had no recollection. A little horrified, I asked him if he, uh, noticed if I was naked. "Umm... actually I think you were." WHAT!! He let me walk out into the hallway NAKED. With kids and his dad there.

I sleep fully clothed now.

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.
