(15:45:30) [me]: you make gourmet food from foodbank handouts?

(15:45:39) Aladnsane: This is the PNW.

(15:46:07) Aladnsane: Foodbank handouts are raw ingredients, some canned goods, bakery rosemary diamantes, fresh fruit and veg... *shrug*

(15:46:15) Aladnsane: If you know how to take your pick, yes, I do


(15:49:05) Aladnsane: Seriously though; the Food Bank here is amazing

(15:50:49) Aladnsane: I've gotten fresh bell peppers, fresh cilantro, there's ALWAYS good bread (largely because most people going there have families, so they need whitebread for the kids, because they don't seem to realize that kids are /trained/ to be picky, rather than being naturally picky - it's serving them 'kids food', that makes kids picky), I mean, there's always things that are hard to find,

(15:50:51) [me]: in Seattle, I can imagine

(15:51:06) Aladnsane: Bellingham

(15:51:13) Aladnsane: In Seattle, I could get all of that Dumpster Diving

(14:15:48) [me]: every time I think back to how I thought about things in high school, central asia makes a lot more sense

(14:15:56) [me]: very provincial and uninformed about things

(14:16:12) Michaela: heh

(14:16:55) Michaela: you know, it's true--even thinking about things like the way people used to write in middle/high school--the quality of their writing makes a lot more sense

(14:17:45) Michaela: i remember telling my mom, "It's like, there's no one here that knows how to think outside the box." she said, "Honey, they don't even know that there is a box."

(01:50:24) Sarah: Like [his] ex and her "fiance" - they're doing fostering. [She] doesn't need children, EVAR.

(01:50:45) Sarah: It's like giving a child with autism to a 2 year old to take care of.

"Ooh, my colouring book. I haven't coloured all semester. Okay, where'd it go? Oh yay, my coloured pencils! I stole this from my little brother. He didn't know it was gone. I stole it from him like three years ago. He still doesn't know it's gone. Wait, longer than that. I finished my last colouring book ... around sophomore year?"
