Sometimes I have something that I would like to mention or discuss but it is not worth an entire thread of its own. Also some people complain about the worthless discussions. If you would like to have a short convo or just make a random comment maybe this would be the place to do it instead of making a new thread. In other words if you have just a general question and it can be answered in 1 or 2 posts then this would be the place for it.

Mods, good idea or bad? If it is a bad one then feel free to lock this up and let it disappear into oblivion.


So my first contribution is, we had breakfast at taco bell today because I had a coupon. One of the things that we got were cinnabon delights. They are so freaking good it is ridiculous.

I think that I may have had a bit too much to drink last night. I'm not sure why I'm typing this, or even how.

I come up with silly random thoughts I feel like inflicting on people all the time. I dunno, like "now late in life I realize the best way to do XYZ is blah blah blah" ... I can never remember them later.... usually mundane.

I might have to carry around a little notepad and write them down for here [you have been warned]

Perhaps all these miscellaneous discussions are grist for the DT site. I have a desire to avoid cinnamon buns though.

lol I know the feeling. I can't remember what I did prior to texting. I will send some pretty random ones.

I like it. Collecting all the nuts in one basket. A huge family favorite at Thanksgiving, unshelled mixed nuts. Makes me miss my dad to think of it.

I used to be good at pogosticking on a shovel if that counts for anything.

Sounds totally safe. I think I did in fact try this when I was a kid, along with jumping off a roof with an umbrella.

Actually a friend ended up breaking his wrist lol. We would set up cinder blocks in the barn and hop from one to another. Or we would try to see who could get the most hops in a row. And if we found ourselves at a hardware store we would race eachother down the aisle until they kicked us out.
