Rather than refuse to cure poverty, despite unlimited money and resources, I thought I'd offer up an equally stupid thread.

1. No. 2 pencil or mechanical?

2. Scrambled eggs.  Add milk, water, or nothing?

3. Quiche.  How many eggs?

4. Public bathrooms.  Okay to poop?

5. Tea or coffee?  Caffeinated or not?

1. No. 2 pencil or mechanical?

Mechanical, but it can't be one of those cheapie packages you see at back to school time that squeak. Paper-Mate or better please, .07 lead thickness.

2. Scrambled eggs.  Add milk, water, or nothing?

Add cream, a pinch of salt, pepper, and fry in about a tablespoon of virgin coconut oil. Top with freshly diced campari tomatoes.

3. Quiche.  How many eggs?

I've only ever made low-carb quiche, and it's mostly eggs.

4. Public bathrooms.  Okay to poop?

Conflicted. Part of me says yes, because when you gotta go, you gotta go. I can say with a clear conscious that everytime I've ever pooped in a public restroom, I absolutely HAD TO. 

That being said, I just sat in a stall yesterday on campus and listened to the plop of my stall neighbor. Then I heard a spray. I smell the results of this pecular activity ALL THE TIME on campus but I'd never actually listened to it happening. Apparently, it's quite common for younger women to poop and then spray body mist. I don't know who they think they're fooling because all that's really happening is that I'm starting correlate warm vanilla sugar from Bath and Body Works with the smell of poop. I think it would be in the company's best interest to develop and after-poo spray that actually eliminates odors but doesn't wreck the smell of their other products.

Maybe I should write them a letter.

5. Tea or coffee?  Caffeinated or not?

Mostly coffee, though I like Chai tea.

Caffeinated.

The sharpener is cool too. You stick the pencil in and turn, which means it sharpens it symmetrically.

I LOOOOOVE that pencil. I'd switch teams if Office Depot carried that one.

Where I work, hundreds of people pass through the same areas as I do every day. People I've never seen before and won't likely see again. I think I would die (laughing) if I was told I had to discipline my bowels. Heh! Although... my 4 y/o seems to have done a great job with that. Something about walking in the front door after I pick her up from aftercare makes her system kick in. You could set your clock by it. It would be a pretty disgusting way to set your clock, though. XD

1.  Mechanical, always.

2.  I had cream.

3.  I don't know 8-10? I haven't made one in awhile.

4.  Sure, why not?

5. Tea and don't wast my time if it doesn't have caffeine.

1. No. 2 pencil or mechanical? Hmmm, that is tough. I really like the feel of an old-fashioned pencil, but they do not stay sharp. My preference is for the classic Caran D'Ache mechanical pencils, where you sharpen the lead, and the pencil itself is hexagonal like a "real" pencil.

2. Scrambled eggs.  Add milk, water, or nothing? Add small clumps of cold butter.

3. Quiche.  How many eggs? 3 large or 4 small to  2 cups milk.

4. Public bathrooms.  Okay to poop? LOL

5. Tea or coffee?  Caffeinated or not? Coffee caffeinated always. Because I drink a ton of green tea, I have started getting the decaf.

Kitty, Kitty, Kitty...it's Thursday. ;) I know you work different hours so it may still be Wednesday to you. I just thought I'd say it before one of your haterz does. :-p

Rather than refuse to cure poverty, despite unlimited money and resources, I thought I'd offer up an equally stupid thread.

1. No. 2 pencil or mechanical?  #2! I didn't install a school-grade Boston pencil sharpener on my desk for nuthin!

2. Scrambled eggs.  Add milk, water, or nothing? A little milk, salt & pepper.

3. Quiche.  How many eggs? Not a clue there. I've never made one.

4. Public bathrooms.  Okay to poop? Baaaaaaaaahahahahahahahaaaa! Uh, sure. But apparently there must be at least two other choices, such as holding it in or using the bushes out back. 

5. Tea or coffee?  Caffeinated or not? Tea at night, coffee in the morning with as much caffeine as I can swallow.
