I love fresh arugula tossed with some squeezed lemon, salt and pepper with a fried egg on top, with or without some sliced avocado; perfection. If I'm felling naughty I'll have a local toasted bagel with a bit of cream cheese, mashed avocado, s&p, sliced tomato and sprouts.

I connected at my boyfriend's house the other day and he had to (somewhat shamefully) admit his was "teabagger" he claims his 18 year old brother changed it (I've met him, it sounds legit) but remains unchanged.

@zoowedding cloves are aromatic dried flower buds, sometimes ground and used as a spice or kept whole. You may have seen them poked into oranges? They're also made into cigarettes. A spicy sweet smell and taste...

Wait...I've never *not* gotten a security deposit back (less carpet cleaning or whatnot) I actually didn't know it was so common not to. Maybe it's different here in California?

You place came with one of those in-wall fold out ironing boards, it's wood and I've NEVER thought to use it in my (lacking counter space) kitchen!

When I lived in Southern California we used the "grey water" from the dishes; we just had a tub in the sink and would carry it out the back door to the garden bed...we used castile soap (or other eco-friendly) and the plants never seemed to mind and miraculously we survived.

I actually read that baking soda absorbing smells is myth. What I found worked great in my last stinky apartment freezer was a tray full of charcoal. I just used charcoal briquettes and the smell was gone in a few days...don't know if this would help in the garbage area...but couldn't hurt.
