    Mrs.C I absolutely love those scarves, I can see myself wearing them in a heartbeat.

    I was so fortunate that my great memere gave me all of her unique scarves when she passed away. They are beautiful, and one of a kind.

    big glasses with no glass in them!!! Young people around here wear them (like 20 somethings!) and they drive me crazy!

    ok, away from clothes, I will add silicone cookware and kitchenaid mixers!

    I have had to use both while all of my stuff is in storage and I hate either! I am glad my roomie had them and I had a chance to try them out while I am hear, otherwise I might have purchased both.

    The silicone I just don't get. Maybe there are some instructions I should know that I didn't get since it isn't mine, but I think it is horrible and stuff sticks to it terribly.

    The kitchenaid is heavy and a pain to use. I much prefer my mom's MUCH cheaper sunbeam. And if I was going to spend all that money on one, I think I would go for a cuisinart.

    Silicone everything in general. I'm HORRIBLY allergic, and I always have to think... can I touch that phone/pen/lotion/cake pan/ shirt (yes, tried on a shirt that had silicone in the seams, broke out in hives before I left the fitting room...) Grrr...

    I love my kitchenaid, but it's been stuck up in the closet for 6 months because I have the tiniest kitchen... :(

    Yeah the "reject" looks like the "running man" in reverse. The "sponge bob" (I think) looks like the "C-step" (or c-walk, can't quite remember)!

    OMG...I LOVE kitchenaid mixers. They are heavy, but mine (okay, my mother's that I kidnapped) never left my counter, so it wasn't really an issue. I had a 6 quart bowl, and I could run it all day and it never got cranky. Kitchenaid can stand up to MUCH more abuse than any other brand, so to me, it's worth it. I'm dying to get a new one. I had to give "mine" back to my mom when I moved. If you don't bake all the time, I can totally see how they would be a royal pain, just on the weight alone.

    I actually do bake all the time. I feel like there isn't much space between the top and the bowl to mix in ingredients while it is moving, and I guess I don't really mean heavy weight wise as much as I just think it is bulky.

    Their standard models don't have a lot of space. My mom's is older than me, and there was more space back then. I want the professional model. There's a lot more space on those. I burned out a Cuisinart in three years and didn't treat it nearly as badly as I treated my mom's 30something year old kitchen aid. On that point alone, my loyalties lie with kitchenaid.

    My mom's sunbeam just burned up while she was making Christmas cookies this year. She got it as a wedding gift 31 years ago. And they sell for under $100. I think that is probably what I will stick with.
