Green Room - Week 5 - Day 5

When I saw the topic suggestion of “South Indian Cuisine”, my brain immediately went to “regionalism”. Southern Indian cooking is a different animal from what they have in the more popular Northern dishes, and it’s something that not as many people are as familiar with. But that core idea of how something within the same border can be so different appealed to my sensibilities, stretching it far beyond food.

“ha-ha (not to be confused with laughter) had a similar effect. There was the definition of what a “ha-ha” was, and that certainly had enough metaphorical ways to twist it around. But the fact that they included the phrase “not to be confused with laughter” took my brain in all kinds of interesting areas.

The historical “Go Tell the Spartans” and how that could be translated into modern life was great, and I knew that a lot of people would have “It’s not Tacky if You Wear it Well” stories. I’ve seen pictures of most of you. ;)

So, despite the complaints to the contrary, I thought this week had a hell of a lot of potential of what could be done with it. I’ve found that often people just end up slamming their heads into the wall, until they realize that they have been staring at the solution to their problem the entire time!

Some people went in similar directions to me, and others went into interesting pathways of their own: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/664951.html is where the poll is located, which is where you should be busy reading, commenting, and voting to keep in your favorites!
