:laugh: LOL! (by the way, I hear LOL doesn't mean laugh out loud anymore).  ???

???  What does it mean, then?

They say it's an expression of irony. Those Millennials; they sure do like irony.

3 to 4 fridges and you still couldn't make something for dinner?   Sounds really odd!

Another heck of one last night. I dreamed I moved into my ex's parent's house, a ramshackle place nothing like their actual house. My flatmates were my first husband (!) who I haven't even heard from for years and a young woman who might have been my daughter or sister. We were all hanging out in a cluttered great room and, since it was 7 pm, I jumped up and volunteered to rustle up dinner. But after rummaging through 3 or 4 fridges that were on the property, I decided I would have to go to a grocery store. I was cheerful about the whole thing although my stomach was beginning to rumble with hunger. The other two people were rather lethargic and saying "whatever" a lot.

This topic is a great resource for gender-neutral love songs!

Did you send up a prayer of thanks that your renter's not playing her harmonica?
Yes, she's not my renter anymore...she finally moved out in May and I've been too freaked out to advertise for another one. So it's very peaceful and quiet up there.

I am now suppose to give up sugar (I have been diagnosed pre-diabetic) as well and that was hard but no longer put it in my coffee (3- 4 cups per day) nor on my breakfast cereal and I buy a no added sugar cereal. I do however eat a lot of cakes and pastries and a crepe with lemon and (brown) sugar is my big treat at the Farmers market on Saturday morning.

I have given up sugar in the past and found it pretty easy after the first week or two -- I just lost my taste for it. Once I start eating it again, the sweet tooth comes back, but weaker than it used to be.

I've never used it in coffee, I've long preferred sugar-free breakfast cereals. I like cakes and pastries, but even those aren't the temptation they used to be. When I eat in a restaurant, I never even look at the dessert menu -- not out of restraint or self-discipline, but because I'm just not that interested.

However, when people bring cookies and donuts, etc., into work I have trouble passing by them all day without trying some. Lucky I don't work in Chuck's office!  :laugh:

I haven't cooked with salt ( I do put in a small pinch when boiling pasta) nor have a salt shaker on the table for probably over 20 years, when I was first diagnosed with hypertension. I must admit I do prefer it when (like just now - about every 2nd week) I buy fish 'n chips at our local shop rather than when I cook it at home myself. I use pepper a lot more now.
