this is a tough question for me because i'm anti-branding (ironic that i work in marketing and branding).

so.... i don't know..... lush and origins come to mind. they pretty much own what little brand loyalty i have to offer.

Frieda 10-03-2007 07:28 PM

edit: also, i'm a google earth addict

Totally - I pretty much live on Naked Juice during the summer. :rolleyes:

...but if you haven't tried Bossa Nova's acai/passionfruit, then you're missing out.

edit: I just realized I got that pic from "bevnet.com", where they review not only the drink itself, but also the feel of the container on one's mouth. talk about internet subcultures...

Oral B

Bet you can't guess.

Psst - they're made by Wrigley's. And I don't even chew gum.

new question:

what's your most frivolous possession?

mine would be the idog that sits between my computer monitors, which hasn't been plugged in probably in over a year. but i love him, his ears are jaunty.

lukkucairi 10-04-2007 11:16 AM

probably something in my shoe rack...

I'd say the 5" patent leather stiletto mary janes. when do you ever get to wear such a beast? and I can hardly walk in them anyway. but they's so PURTY...

something like this only 2/3 less platformy.

Bman 10-04-2007 12:17 PM

Oh the ramen that I could have bought with the money spent that THAT

auntie aubrey 10-04-2007 12:23 PM

^ yes but ramen isn't nearly so pretty.

Stephi_B 10-04-2007 01:20 PM

Is it strange when one doesn't have any frivolous possessions?? :confused: (only in the meaning 'frivol' has got in German... :o)

Well, but it can be I got an excellent denial-mechanism in this field: whether it's the 157th keyring pendant, handbags never worn cos they turn out to have a stupid colour/material after all, pervertly expensive scientific books which do not exactly contain a lot and/or that which interests me really, ... they ain't frivolous for me. Really! ;)

T.I.P. 10-04-2007 01:26 PM

A suit that cost so much that i dare not wear it for fear of getting it even slightly dirty :o

I'm sure the excitement will wear off once i begin my life in corporate america but for the moment that suit is by far my most frivolous belonging.

zero 10-04-2007 03:17 PM

monogrammed chicken saddle

trisherina 10-04-2007 11:54 PM

Puffs Ultra tissue cube with the hologram peacock on one side.

madasacutsnake 10-05-2007 08:56 AM

I once had a diamond and platinum ring that cost as much as two mortgage repayments. Old-cuts, twenty-seven of them. It was frivolous so I sold it for four mortgage repayments. That was six years ago and I still regret it.

new question:
have you ever used an online dating site?
if so, what happened?
if not, why not?


auntie aubrey 10-05-2007 12:55 PM


i don't know why not. i met my husband in 2001 and knew he was the one, so i never really had a reason to try one out. and in general i guess i'm just more comfortable meeting people casually on my own or through friends.

i'm not even really comfortable with social networking sites that are there "for friendships" so i definitely wouldn't have adapted well to an online dating service. and as an aside, i don't consider this kind of interaction to fall into that category. this falls into the "meeting people casually on my own or through friends" category. so i guess it's the intent of meeting someone romantically or otherwise that makes me feel kind of skeevy.

^what she said - get yours self more vitamin C johnston

brightpearl 10-05-2007 02:51 PM

No, the internet was just a gleam in Al Gore's eye when last I ventured into The Meat Market.

Looks like your "yes" answerers are going to plead the fifth, Ceej. :)

Earthling 10-05-2007 05:57 PM

I don't often have too many dates, so I doubt I'd go for internet dates.
Usually I just find my dates at the grocery store.

Altho my mom, makes the best walnut date cookies...ya' know, its been a long time. Think I'll call ma. I always get my dates from ma.;)

auntie aubrey 10-05-2007 07:44 PM

i think those are actually cockroaches in heavy syrup.

brightpearl 10-05-2007 09:06 PM

^sounds like a good description of an internet date to me...

madasacutsnake 10-05-2007 11:00 PM

No. I had friends meet through an ordinary dating service though, and it worked out well for them (even if they did tell every-one that they met at the tennis club).

trisherina 10-06-2007 12:44 AM

No, though I knew of my spouse via a local dial-up message board prior to meeting him. Specifically, all that had registered was that he liked "Desperadoes Under the Eaves" as much as I do, and had a girlfriend. I'm not sure that portended the match it turned out to be, but there you have it.

Frieda 10-06-2007 05:52 AM

i have zefrank.com/bulletin

T.I.P. 10-06-2007 07:05 AM

wow. You guys have all been so lucky !

3 years ago:

-got dumped

-subscribed to a free online Supermarket of the SoulMateTM to try to "speed the healing process"

-got a date with a girl who looked "hott" in 2D

-met her during the daytime and BARELY RECOGNIZED the person in the picture (the passage from 2D -> 3D was real tricky)

-spent an uncomfortable moment trying to figure out how to tell her that I was not interested without hurting her feelings

-went home feeling approximately twice as lonely as I had felt before the experience


definitely not one of the highlights of my life :rolleyes:

new question:

If you were a salad dressing, what kind would you be?

trisherina 10-06-2007 11:14 AM

Homemade vinaigrette, whisk in an extra grind of pepper.

T.I.P. 10-06-2007 12:35 PM

straight up olive oil and poivre moulu 5 baies (the kind of pepper that comes in 5 different colored berries)
