This is my attempt at fluff.  Sorry in advance if it's not fluffy enough.

1) What's the biggest event (Work, Social, Volunteef) you have ever organized? Do you like creating/hosting events, or would you rather just be an attendee?

2). What's the biggest home improvement kind of project you've ever attempted?  How did it go?  

3). Are you crafty?  Are you working on a project right now?  Tell us about it!

4)  What are you reading?

On behalf of homosexuals everywhere -- they are not gay because they are absent of members of the opposite sex.   What you said here isn't only stupid, and potentially offensive to Grap (although I think she probably finds it more amusing than offensive) it is rather offensive to homosexuals.

My oldest leaves in August as well and his brother has grand plans for his room, lol.  I think the room switch will happen in record time!

And yes, I know both types of people Sav, IRL. Ones that were born that way and ones that decided to try the other side. Some who came back, some who stayed.

I'm not the one who keeps bringing up my sex life, Molly.  You have now initiated questions about my sex life in two separate threads.  It's really skeevy.  You just don't interest me in that way.  I've tried to be kind and let you down easily--I would never want to hurt anyone's feelings, even a closet lesbian who keeps making inappropriate comments to another woman about her sex life, but your fixation on my sex life is beginning to push the line and clearly I'm going to have to be blunt.  I am not interested in you sexually; I don't wish you to continue to discuss my sex life on this board.  it's not cute, it's not clever and it's certainly not innocent.

Go back to your husband, dear.  No one here is interested.

There used to be a commercial where as the kid was driving out the driveway for college the parents were already re-doing their room.  We would tease our kids that that is what we were going to do,  but we did not actually make the changes until after they moved out after college.

Our guest room is actually a second master suite, with it's own private bathroom and balcony.  The Girl ha wanted to move up there for a year or two anyway, so we anticipate that maybe after her first year or two in college we'll move her up there and convert her room into an office and maybe throw a treadmill in there.
