Does any one have good resources for buying these? I have a great Denby set (saddly living in my parents house), but I'd love to get a few more pieces or a new set.

As a long time Girl Scout, I'm begging you to buy a box or two of the real thing from a Girl Scout. It helps defer the cost of summer camp or other awesome programs for these girls. Just eat them in moderation and you'll be ok.

I was just looking at this place yesterday. I'm thinking about going to Palm Springs for my birthday next month, and this looks like a great place to get away.

This is what I've been waiting years for. I have no desire to have an iPhone, but for this I would wait in a long line. Then again, I have a policy for waiting till at least the second gen on apple products. For now I just won't get my hopes up.

I use the peppermint soap as body wash, and in place of shaving cream in the shower. It really wakes me up in the morning, and a bottle seems to last FOREVER! I think I've had the current bottle I've been using since February.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is my all time favorite children's book. I am so excited to see this movie!

I don't know if I'm sold on this recipe. 36 hours is a long time to wait for cookies, and the beauty of the chocolate chip cookies is that it's quick an relatively easy to make. I think I'll sick with the toll-house recipe from the back of the chocolate chip bag. I might try this over the holidays with my sister, cause she's the real baker of the family.

@ lunatig

I think it moderation kitsch items can be kind of fun. I just have a few little pieces that remind me of home. A wire model of the Empire State Building, a Snow Globe of my University (which plays the OU fight song), and some nice postcards of my hometown.

What I really want is a mini statue of Tulsa's Golden Driller, or praying hands. I think when you come from a town with kitsch it really grows on you and can remind you of home. You just have to do it in moderation.

I live in Beverly Hills, and they have some pretty strict permit parking. It works out pretty well, though recently the red curb was extended taking away about 4 spots. However, there's always something on the block, and usually right in front of the apartment.

Those pillows really take me back to my Hacky-sack playing days.

Wow, I didn't realize you couldn't find these anymore. About 6 years ago my mom bought two sets each of the large and medium sized glasses. They were my first glass in my very first kitchen. Sadly they're in storage back home. I might have my mom ship these out to me. I think she got them at Restoration Hardware.

I'm kind of in love with that egg and pancake ring. I love sunny side up eggs, but they always seem to spread out to far on my griddle.

I totally want one of these.

I don't have a pet, but I do need this to sweep up hair. I seem to be shedding all over the place, but you wouldn't know it to look at my hair. I've been dying for one of these to help with my ever present dust problem. I'd use it on everything.

My boyfriend won't get rid of anything. He has 92 tee-shirts! I've counted.

Luckily I have the dressing room and all the built-ins for my clothes, and he can have the dresser for all his t-shirts.

I on the other hand own very little. So I guess it balances out.

Love it. I love it even more that you find keeping books some important. Also, I think we own most of the same comics as you. Only with more DC. =-)

I would love to own this, and use it to play Dr. Mario on my old NES.

My mom used to make something called Mexican chicken casserole. It's one of those junior league cookbook classics. You can swap doritos for tortilla chips. It's not gourmet, but it's so delicious. I was thinking about it today because it's a kind of chilly and gloomy day, and something about a creamy cheesy casserole sounds great.

Here's the recipe if anyone is curious.
