Now that single-food-theme parties are getting popular, I'd like to attend a popcorn party. You could try various types of corn (I got a variety pack from i_leonardo once that was awesome) - blue, white, yellow. You could do things like organic versus Orville's, oil versus air, home-made versus store-bought...
Plus, there are toppings. I think it was Trina who used to make popcorn with a little oil on the stove top (the old fashioned way) and then put it into a ziplock & shake sugar onto it. That stuff was amazing. Chocolate covered popcorn, toffee popcorn with nuts, caramel popcorn, maple syrup popcorn...
(I can't host a party any time soon, for reasons so numerous as to be boring to anyone but me; and even I'm pretty bored by it.)
I'm having difficulty throwing myself back into work. I'm working every day until further notice (it's possible that Saturday the 23rd will be my next day off, depending on how this week goes). Really REALLY not motivated.
My friends are creative and supportive and awesome. Seriously.
