When one reads five or more pages of this thread in one sitting, one develops a quiet appreciation for the range of unexciting things occurring in the lives of forumites.

I think of this as the Zen of the fora.

I purchased a mirror today. A huge gigantic mirror. A mirror that one can see one's whole body in. This would be overly exciting for this thread except for the fact that there are several mirrors in the house in which I can see my whole body.

The mirror was purchased for my husband (who is 7 inches taller than I am), to remove one of his continual complaints about living in the house in New Tt-town.

If I can fix the other one, it will be too exciting for the thread, so I will have to post it somewhere else.

For some reason I thought you were a straight male I'd seen on the LHC.  Apparently my wires were crossed.  How  exciting!

I have never eaten 7 layer salad. I assume that lettuce is one of the layers.

Lettuce, chopped sweet onion, raw peas, shredded cheddar, chopped hard-boiled eggs, chopped cooked bacon, covered with a layer of Miracle Whip.  Refrigerate several hours or overnight; better the second or third day.  I could mention that I added an 8th layer of grated Parmesean, but that might well take us out of the realm of this thread.

Dr. Alcott, you're absolutely right.

One of our seven layers is different from yours.  Good thing that's not exciting.

7 layer salad sounds very good.  I don't rule it to be too exciting for this thread, but it is close. 

I am drinking a glass of water.

I have just installed a hook and eye latch on the bathroom door. I don't know whether the annoying cat behavior that prompted this is suitable to the thread or not.

Try us and see.

Careful, Llanfair.  You know what curiosity does to cats (especially ones who are being annoying). <unexciting wink>

But the satisfaction will bring me back, Ab_Grp.  So it's worth it.

I would quite like a slice of cake, preferably chocolate.

BZZZZT!  (WB.  I mean, really.  Chocolate on OREP??  Even as an aspiration.  Get ahold of yourself!)



I, on the other hand, have three pens but only two tops.  They are all made of plastic.

There is a possibility that the third top is somewhere under the desk.

Just don't let us in on the excitement if you find it.

No no, it is precisely this sort and level of excitement that OREP archives, for posterity.

If, on the other hand, I find a piece of chocolate cake under my desk, I shall certainly not post about it here.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Last week's mail has been sorted and read. Most of it ended up in the recycling bin.

Objection!  I am certain chocolate has been mentioned on this thread - the eating thereof, even - without eliciting a BZZZZT.  Further, I am destined to remain cakeless tonight, therby cementing this whole experience as thoroughly unexciting.

Of course, some would question the appropriateness of a buzzer on this thread in the first place.  Not me, you understand, but some people.
