I've been collecting hankies since I was a little girl, and only started using them in the past year. I have about 10, enough for a week and some extras. I use one per day usually, with an extra tucked in my purse. If you have a big enough hankie you can fold it each time you use it so that the outside is clean, but I also have a hankie holder to tuck in my purse. When I have a cold I usually switch to a really big bandana-sized hankie and that seems to be enough for me. The nicest thing about using handkerchiefs when you have a cold? They don't fall apart when they get wet!

Can someone tell me about the lamp in the last photo?

The only things I really prefer to dry are linens. Bath and kitchen towels, sheets, and blankets are so large for drying indoors (I live in an apartment), and are much softer (and more absorbent) after being tumbled dry.

Nearly all of my clothes are hung to dry. It saves wear and tear, and that way I don't run the risk of anything shrinking (my mom shrank so many of my shirts when I was a kid).

I used to use these (and film canisters) to store spare flies - if the bottle is air tight it will keep the feathers protected but also float if you drop it. I have friends who will put a serving or two of loose leaf tea in them but you have to be okay with the fact that people might think you're storing some other herbal substance. I also have a friend who stores an emergency kit of needles and buttons in one - could also work for band-aids too.

A google search suggests that some vets, animal shelters and free clinics may take donations of pill bottles. If you have a great volume, it might be worth checking into this.

I love the lamp in the first photo - I keep seeing it pop up in people's homes. Who makes it?

Reminds me of this chandelier in the Smithsonian American Art Museum collection (just saw it in the gallery last week):

A microwave is perfect for a mug of water for making tea tea.

Other than that, I like my microwave mostly for heating leftovers, especially casserole or other soft, wet dishes. I hate heating in the oven or on the stovetop, food always ends up dried out. Food like pizza or something with a crusty or crispy component are still better done in the oven, they can get soggy in the microwave.

Chickpea salad with red onion, italian parsley, balsamic vinegar and a tiny bit of olive oil. It's perfect for hot weather and it's great by itself or on a pita or chips.

I can't imagine researching and writing a 20 page paper on a netbook.

This is wonderful. You've really put into words what it's like to eat ice cream out of a carton. I have a Ben & Jerry's coupon eating a hole in my pocket that I might have to use this weekend.

These are really cute, I'd stay in one. Thank goodness they're getting rid of carpeting, that is one thing that I find a little gross about any hotel, no matter how nice it is. It also looks like the bedspreads can be easily washed compared those floral polyester monstrosities that most motels have.

It never occurred to me that anyone didn't know how to make a good grilled cheese. It's probably the first hot "meal" I learned to make. Who are these "most people" who are so unsuccessful in their grilled cheese making endeavors? What I want to know is if you try one thing (thick cheese, etc) and it doesn't work, why would you keep making it that way? There have to be dozens of "right" ways to make a crunchy, unburned, melty sandwich.

This is OLD tech, but analog clocks and watches. I prefer them to digital (the glowing light problem!), but I am freakishly sensitive to the ticking sound, even over my white noise.

There was an art installation at the Venice Biennale this year that is composed of indicator lights from electronics (Constellation No. 3 by Chun Yu). It's mentioned here: http://www.designboom.com/weblog/cat/10/view/6644/chun-yun-constellation-no-3-at-venice-art-biennale-09.html

For me a breakfast sandwich has scrambled eggs and a lunch or snack sandwich has fried eggs (my favorite is just egg and ketchup on sour dough bread). I never considered a fried egg sandwich for breakfast, it was a Lenten Friday last minute dinner when I was growing up.

Fun! This seems like an art installation idea gone commercial, reminds me of the movement to knit and crochet around everything from furniture to trees to lamp posts.

Reminds me of a dorm room, I've seen some amazing loft setups done on the cheap, but this isn't necessarily the most amazing. The layout works well, and kudos to him for doing something creative to live within his means.

I'd be afraid of dropping the sink or chipping it, and it's not the type of thing you could run out to pick up a replacement at Target. Better idea to just put the stopper in a traditional sink to be mindful of how much water you're using.

I clean my keys every once in a while - and at the same time clean my front door - handle, edge, lock. I doubt my keys are going to make me sick, but it's probably a good idea to clean them now and again.
