Imagine my suprise at reading this thread over what turned out to be a chopped apple, walnut, and TIP salad.

I'm hoping to have Trisherina at dinner.

auntie aubrey 10-06-2007 04:37 PM

balsamic vinaigrette.

craig johnston 10-06-2007 06:34 PM

honey and mustard

Bman 10-06-2007 06:35 PM

Oh why not....ranch.

12"razormix 10-06-2007 06:36 PM

toasted sesame oil

brightpearl 10-06-2007 06:46 PM

I can't believe no one has professed Green Goddess yet.

----------------------------------Nouvelle question------------------------------------

Can you describe an unfulfilled wish or project that you have been meaning to get around to (or used to dream about) but have not yet found the time to do ?

brightpearl 10-07-2007 06:54 AM

I want to learn to play the cello. And to speak Icelandic.

T.I.P. 10-07-2007 07:04 AM

I have a sculpture project (involving liquids) that I want to do one day.

brightpearl 10-07-2007 07:15 AM

^Intriguing. Care to describe it further? A kinetic fountain? Jars of curdled milk stacked into an artful commentary on early American politics?

I have 2 books for kiddos that I would like to try to publish, but I'm all shy about them.

T.I.P. 10-07-2007 08:26 AM

i would prefer to remain vague about it and let you imagine something wonderful

5. observe & film the greater mars-red pelican in its clifftop habitat
6. blah blah blah

Tunesmith 10-07-2007 03:50 PM

Off the top of my head, I'd like to read the entire Penguin Collection (I'm around 20 in :cool: ) and form a band, no matter how crappy we sound.

Odbe 10-08-2007 01:16 AM

I've always wanted to make a windchime. I've got some nice-sounding chimes somewhere, I just need something to hang them off - oh, and find where I put them. I guess this one goes back in the procrastination basket.

topcat 10-08-2007 02:51 AM

wind chimes are so that stupid people know there is a breeze

Jack Flanders 10-08-2007 02:56 AM

remember that your neighbors may not love 'em as much as you do. trust me. i was a chime stealin' neighbor at one time. ;)

craig johnston 10-08-2007 05:23 AM

new question:

why aren't you boycotting the beijing olympics?

Stephi_B 10-08-2007 06:20 AM

Mmh, well, for passive boycott (not watching the TV transmissions, not buying any merchandising products) it is too early. Only thing one can do in that direction now is not buying tickets to watch the games live (something I could not afford / would not do for Olympics in any other place abroad, so it didn't cross my thoughts anyways).
Do you mean active boycott like going to/organising demos, writing complaint letters to official places, the media etc.? Dunno, exactly. One part is a hybrid of laziness/lack of time, the other a kind of paralysation as there are a myriad of things that go totally wrong on the planet: For which to engage fully? Or engage for everything a bit?
:confused: :(

madasacutsnake 10-08-2007 06:32 AM

Roy and HG may call it.

brightpearl 10-08-2007 06:49 AM

I am just too damned fond of eating dim sum while watching shotput.

Marcus Bales 10-08-2007 07:11 AM

Because the point of the Olympics is to suspend just the sort of political disagreement that a boycott embodies.

i am boycotting the beijing olympics. but i boycott all olympics so it's kind of an empty gesture.

T.I.P. 10-08-2007 12:38 PM

There is a good chance i won't be watching them, unless i stop by my folk's place to have lunch during August 2008 (they have a tv).

where are they being held?

craig johnston 10-08-2007 04:13 PM

i agree aa, but it's gonna be the biggest propaganda exercise since berlin'36.

:(

Frieda 10-08-2007 06:54 PM

because i'm not politicially involved enough to care and i think there are other countries that lock people away, participate in arms races, suppress nations and the people in it, and have a huge propaganda machine going on.

what i hope is that the olympic spirit will stay in china.. that it actually might do some good for the chinese people.

auntie aubrey 10-08-2007 08:22 PM

i don't believe in the olympic spirit. i put five rings under my pillow last night and they were still there this morning. shouldn't the olympic spirit have at least left me a bronze medal? i mean at least?

topcat 10-09-2007 01:25 AM

your performance wasnt really that good.

if nothing else, it'll be interesting to see if they manage to curb atmospheric pollution for the duration of the games. that crap wafts all the way across the pacific and makes it sometimes even as far as utah...not that we don't have our own love affair with particulate emissions here in the valley...

Question for Tuesday, October 9, 2007
 
What would it take for me to get you to rub my left shoulder (right beside my neck) besides "pretty please?"

madasacutsnake 10-09-2007 06:40 AM

I would trade you for two hours of housework.

Stephi_B 10-09-2007 06:58 AM

One or two cups latte macchiato (or cappuccino) - one or two depending on how you content you were with the service.

brightpearl 10-09-2007 06:59 AM

Just ask. :)

*rub rub rub*

T.I.P. 10-09-2007 07:02 AM

a piece of homemade pecan pie with vanilla ice cream
