[*]paper money must be all the right way up.[/*] That's not obsessive. That's the correct way of storing your money. I'm sure I have obsessive behaviours--one of them is to correct grammar. Most of the time I'm able to do it silently with just my nostrils flaring but when I hear egregious * grammat...

I have been watching quite a lot of the Olympics. Given that I work in the same city, it's hard to get away from it. I even watch hockey and can carry on a conversation about the games relatively intelligently, given that the extent of my knowledge is that I know it's a game and I know how to spell ...

[*]I annoy other players during board games because I move their pieces to the centre of the square they have landed on if they put them down off-centre, or worse, touching the border of the square. How could this possibly annoy anyone? How can anyone put their piece anywhere EXCEPT right in the mi...

In these days of extreme germ paranoia, I wash my hands several times a day. I wash them after every call of nature (as David so euphemistically put it), before I eat, when I come in from being in the car,.... If I cook with any meat but especially chicken, I wash my hands several times in the cours...

I just watched a new favourite: Amelie . Oh sigh. What a wonderful movie. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 90%. Am I the last person to see this wonderful movie? I know what you mean about Kevin Costner. When is someone going to tell him that he's lost his looks and he can't act anymore? I'll still watch Si...

I LIKE this forum. I may not put an answer of every thread but I always read them.

I also find this forum restful maybe because it doesn't have the ads, I...

I like your original suggestion to leave "colour" and "color" (I can't even type it without having to backspace and delete the U) as they are written in the original recipe. If I submitted a recipe to an international cookbook and my spelling, which I KNOW is correct because I go...

Tofu Burgers

Yes, I know there will be some who turn up their noses at this but we LIKE tofu. I had a block of tofu that needed to be used and I was tired of making Tofu Fajitas. I wondered if I could make burgers out of the tofu and found this . I only used 1 package of tofu and made 6 large patties. I also add...

Re: When the cell phone rings

Oh my goodness!! You're right! I still have problems whenever I vacuum ... Luckily I am unaffected by that because I was always too scared at just the thought of watching that show. Brrr. :stomp: Luckily, I am unaffected because I don't vacuum. It makes me peevish. edit: I should clarify. This does...

Re: Vegan?

I abhor extremism of all kind; Me too. How about this - no animal products from 10:45-6:00 for health reasons. There's a wonderful restaurant in Vancouver that's for unrepentant meat eaters called Memphis Blues Barbecue House. A colleague and I were talking about it, raving over the amazing slow co...

How about Vegetarian to 6:00 and Vegan from 10:45 - 6:00? My normal breakfast is, I think, very healthy--fruit and plain low-fat yogurt. After trying soy milk a few years ago, I can't bring myself to try soy yogurt AND it's prohibitively expensive. In the last week, I switched to bringing a vegan sa...

Every so often, I wish my user name was prm but I'm very happy to be MrsBrown--it's so anonymous. According to some website that I can't link because I'm too lazy to look it up, Brown is the 5th most common name in the country.
