1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: The Thanksgiving Turkey (and other goodies!) Thread on: November 13, 2006 06:16:51 PM
SmartDeli makes a vegan turkey, but it comes in lunchmeat style.  It's not like traditional Thanksgiving turkey, but it's so good on a sandwich with a little mustard and some salt.  My boyfriend and I usually make Morningstar Farms' ChikNuggets and macaroni and cheese for Thanksgiving.

Ahk  Smiley Im really excited Tongue I am definatly willing to ask around! I have looked on allposters.com and thats where I got my list, but the ones that I liked were more the $20 dollars each. I have looked on ebay a little bit. They have less variety but it is usually a lot cheaper if you can find what you want. I think for now, I will just get the movie posters, hang them and then decide what to do from there!

Thanks for your great ideas  Wink

I used to work at a movie theater (Regal), and I know that mine had a back room FULL of old movie posters that were up for grabs.  I think it helps to know someone on the inside, but we used to have people come in and essentially go shopping in that room for posters.  If you ask early, you can probably call dibs on their current ones and giant cardboard displays, too.

red and black underwear underwear...without the white panel in the crotch.
Herbal tea
emergency chocolate
homework help if the craps get so bad she has to come home early from school.

HAHAHA, once I was trying to get my boyfriend to relay messages from me to my friend on instant messenger, and I tried to get him to type, "I hate period cramps!" but he accidentally typed, "I hate period craps!"  I was going to get him to fix it, but then I realized that I hate those, too.

I agree with the dark underwear wholeheartedly.  Plus the chocolate and some pimple stuff.  My pimples still get out of control around my period.  I use rubbing alcohol on a Q-Tip and The Body Shop's Tea Tree Stick to blast them.  I also used to use those ThermaCare whatever pads that stick on your underwear and heat up for 8 hours.  They were nice.

Another thing that I can't live without now when I get my period is those Charmin wet butt wipes.  Especially if I start to leak or if I wear just a pad. 

But definitely get her something for when she starts carrying tampons with her.  There's nothing worse than having to ask someone for a tampon and they don't use the same brand/style as you and everything is just uncomfortable.

And another American favorite, Puppy Chow:

Melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter together in a large bowl.  Add rice Chex.  Stir vigorously.  Dump the whole mess in a paper bag with a lot of powdered sugar and shake really, really hard.  Mmmm.  Puppy Chow.  Slumber party bliss. 

I LOVE PUPPY CHOW!!  Except my mom always called it 'People Chow'.  She makes HUGE tins of it every Christmas.  This past Christmas, I couldn't eat too much of it because it was soooo damn sweet.
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: "_____ in a box" gift ideas. on: May 28, 2006 09:51:39 AM
My best friend turned 20 this month and since she has lost her teenage status and all her teenage angst, I thought I'd make her a "All Grown Up... In A Box."
Personal planner for all her organized adult needs
A button up work shirt an tie
A calculator since she is an Accounting major
Gas card

It seems like a skinny box though, I want to put more in but I can't seem to think of anything else... do you guys have any ideas for an all grown up box?

Sunscreen & Moisturizer -- she can start worrying about old age wrinkles now
Some sort of hand-squeezie, stress relief thing -- or an actual punching bag -- to deal with adult world woes
The Savvy Woman's Guide to Car Buying if it is still in print
A DIY voodoo doll kit of somesort, for all the a**h***s she'll be unable to avoid in the work arena
And you could craft her some sort of whatzitCalled 'Blueberry' to tide her over until she can have a real one....

6  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Best vegan cookbook? on: April 11, 2006 10:28:57 AM
I got Vegan Planet as my starter cookbook and it's fabulous.  Especially the portebello fajitas.  MMmmmmm!

But I also go around to different websites to pick out recipes that I think I'll like and make my own cookbook.  Because I'm kind of a picky eater and I don't like to cook from challenging recipes, so I like to have my own personal collection of recipes so I don't feel like I'm wasting money on an entire cookbook when I'm only going to use 4 or 5 recipes.  Right now, Target has recipe card binders in the dollar section, and they're ridiculously cute.  And I've been getting some recipes from here: http://vegweb.com/index.php?action=recipes;/.

I know you craftsters are much to enlightened to think that we all live in the 'outback' and talk like the crocodile hunter!

Haha...my boyfriend is a 1st gen. American.  His father has an Australian accent, so we secretly put him on speakerphone one day so our friend could hear him talk.  She was swooning and was like, "Oooh, I'm picturing him being buff and tan with blonde hair..."

"...like Crocodile Dundee??"

It was funny.  Less funny in writing, but funny nonetheless.

I lived in Maryland my whole life and I was shocked when I turned that magical age when you find out that not everyone has UTZ chips, TastyCakes, or Old Bay.

My brother's college roommate was from New York and we invited him over for crabs one day just to poke fun at him.  My brother was only half coaching him along, because he knew that he could go through the shell pile later and eat everything that was left behind.   Cheesy

dab some tea tree oil on your pimples---you may need help if they are on your back, but the tea tree oil is great.

I had it when I was younger, and once I started using that Clean & Clear body wash in the purple container, it cleared up.  I haven't even used it in years, it's never since been bad like it was before.  But sometimes when it flares up I use the Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash.

I swear by The Body Shop's Tea Tree Oil collection for my face, so I bought the bar soap for my boyfriend's back and it seems to work better than whatever other things he's tried since we've been together.

Yes, you can have 8ga tunnels.  I think that's the smallest you can get them.  But I got mine from an online store that was sketchy and is no longer in business.

I had a huge problem going from a 2 to a 0.  It was horrible.  Then I realized that jewelry is too expensive, so I did the electrical tape bit.  It was so thin of layers that I was able to wrap a new layer every week or so.  Now they're a glorious 3/4".

And I don't recommend the silicone ones unless you know that you're cool with them.  Jewelry is too expensive to buy and then realize that they make your ear swell up and ooze.
