Might not be terrible as long as it's not pumpkin *spice* hummus.

Today, as part of my getting well project, I walked to the local branch of the library. From there I walked another block to the quilting fabric store. Where I found out that it is closing! Boo! The owner is 70 and ready to retire. She asked me to go through the free quilting magazines and to "Please, please take as many as you want...two boxes full would be great!"

So I got a ton of quilting magazines and two pattern for free! I also bought some fabrics that were a good deal. And I think I'll go back as each week she is reducing the prices by another 10%. But it means that there won't be a quilt store near me anymore!
Gardening / Re: Mel Has Fun With Aquaponics

I'm pretty sure the fish would eat slugs, but that would require me to carry the horrible slimy things around to the tank. :-X I don't know if we have a specially disgusting variety of slug here, or what, but the ones I pick out of the aquaponics have slime that clings until I can wash my hands with soap, and argh arghaaaarrrrgggghhhhhh it's gross! :o

A lot of frogs and some birds think slugs are delicious, so if a frog ever moves into the aquaponics I will welcome it with glee. ;D Bluetongue lizards too, though they'd have a hard time climbing up to the growbeds...

recently, I purchased two backpacks, one online and the second in a store. Both were not what I wanted. Due to crazy work schedule, I didn't have time to return them

This past Thursday, on my way to the gym, I went to a ups location and mailed
back backpack #1. Today, on my way to a city walk, I returned backpack #2

Do you *need* more storage space? Personally, I would just leave the space empty
Complete Silence / Re: You're going to get fat if you eat that!

Here's the thing that I find equal parts amusing / aggravating - most food police that I know are all information and judgement and very little personal application. So, while they are on their third glass of wine, they're criticizing the caffeine in my tea. Or telling me how bad the artificial sweetener in my tea is while they scarf a slice of pie for dessert. I use silence as well. Sometimes a pointed look at their plate glass if I'm feeling spicy or things have gone on too long -- that's usually met with a "I'm being bad today, I'll be good starting 'X'." Ohhhhh......
Interesting observation! I remember I was eating a single fun-sized chocolate bar, and my flatmate at the time lectured me about it, while she was smoking a cigarette. I wasn't even close to overweight at the time, and took a lot of exercise (I wish I was that fit and healthy now!). It was a long time ago but it stayed with me because...well...!

That reminds of me the time I was at a Renaissance Festival, standing in a food line. Two young ladies were standing in front of me, talking to each other. I overheard them complain about how disgusting it was to eat turkey legs - meat, how horrible! All the while smoking ciggies.  Now, I totally respect vegetarians and vegans, but I just found it ironic how they were ok to engage in what most others think is an unhealthy habit while disparaging what they thought was another one.

I had a vegan tell me once that some of them smoke because they feel they are protected by their vegan lifestyle. Good luck with that.

I always try to be extremely nice and pleasant to cashiers to make up for the tough customers. I had one ask me once, "Did you find everything you were looking for?" to which I answered, "I even found some things I wasn't looking for!"

My friend has something like this at her cabin and stores cutting boards and cooling racks on the bottom two shelfs and then puts her long soup ladle, bbq tongs and bbq spatula in the top shelf.

Oh, that is so cool! I'm ordering one now for the laundry room; thanks so much for posting this!
Oh, that's just gross!
