    Default Cynical Avocado's Absolutely Admirable Accumulation of Random Bantering #165

    Welcome, one and all to the one hundred and sixty-fifth version of our beloved random banter thread. here we can gather and banter randomly about whatever strikes our fancy... except for certain things

    before we get started, let's lay down a few ground rules
    Rules List
    Spoiler
    Show
    1. Spam. For the purposes of RB, one word posts are generally considered spam. Likewise, posts that are nothing but *actions like this* are also be considered spam. Remember that the quality of the post's content is much better than the speed of your response.

    2. This isn't the Play by Post or Town forum, nor is it the Silly Message Board Games or Structured Games forum. Please avoid continuous roleplay or mock battles and fights such as the "competition for control of the universe".

    3. If it's already a thread, don't bring it to RB. RB has such a huge range of subject matter even restricted to the little snippets that probably don't warrant their own thread, it doesn't need legitimate thread topics cluttering it up as well. The exception to this is to bring something that is off-topic from one thread, but on-topic for RB and the subject doesn't warrant a thread of its own.

    4. Don't advertise other threads in RB. Just because these new threads move at speeds more appropriate to a message board than an IM session doesn't mean you need to come over to RB and brow beat people into posting in your latest brainchild.

    5. Please don't post single line posts alerting us to your current status -- as in "I'm back." This is Random Banter, not "How to stalk Random GitP forum members."

    6. Don't poke, kick or bump the thread. It will move at whatever pace it wants to. Also, please refrain from Captain Obvious comments akin to "My, the thread is fast today."

    7. Random Banter can only be as good, or as entertaining, as you make it. Demands to be entertained will fall on deaf ears unless you can add something more meaningful to the conversation.

    8. As this is a public forum, where the current topic is nicely recorded for you, and not a conversation where you could have missed the beginning, please refrain from asking something to the effect of "What's the topic?". Please take the time to read up a bit first.

    9. Thread Creator must include the words "Random" and "Banter" as well as the thread #. Try to be concise as well.

    10. Every post should contain two visible, legible complete sentences, Subject and Predicate. C'mon, make your old English teachers proud.

    11. Remember, Random Banter is not your IM client. If you want to have a back and forth discussion with just one person, look in their contact information for IM details.

    12. Whenever a new thread is created, all "first post", "first page", and all posts of that nature will be deleted by the administrators. Please avoid doing this, as it is frustrating for them to deal with one-lined posts like this.

    13. Double-posting is not your friend. We have edit buttons for a reason.

    14. Once you have made a Random Banter thread, you must wait 50 threads before making another one.

    15. If you can avoid dibs calling on making the next thread, that will avoid people needing to wait if the thread hits 50 pages while the dibs-caller is asleep.

    It's ok MoonCat, it was quite amusing.

    Anyway, I'm doing fine. Kinda EH, but it's mostly just a bemused gray feeling.

    Indeed.

    I am in awe. Not only has French food lived up to all the hype that's around it, it has actually surpassed it. France, you have put me in a state of awe.

    I've been twice. Once, I was like, 9, once I was 13. I must go again, and fully appreciate all that is French cuisine! I have gone to several incredibly expensive French restaurants in Toronto, though, and DAMN is the food good there!

    I don't know the conversion rate, but when I went to France 3 years ago (to the day actually), nothing seemed insanely expensive and no one I went with complained. France is wonderful if you have food allergies though. I finally got to try a croissant!

    Y'know they always say that about Europe. First of all, if you eat at restaurants the whole time, of course it's going to be expensive! Street-food and small grocery stores are the way to go, to really feel French life. Buy your bread, your cheese, and maybe your meat, and that's your lunch.
    Same in England. Pubs and indian restaurants in London are a way better way to experience the city, and cheaper too! Not to mention the lower beer prices makes a SAVING. Same with wine in Italy.

    FfH is amazingly compliant for me on this computer. I've managed to beat two of the three main scenario sequences, and beaten three out of four stray scenarios as well. Normally, I'd have come to a grinding halt at this point due to all the bugs that usually make some of these scenarios unplayable (the fourth stray scenario still seems buggy, but it's not important anyway). Now I'll try the last sequence of scenarios, so that I finally can get to play the grand finale.

    Also, new thread, I see...

    Food day in French class was always a joy. I can only imagine what the authentic stuff is like.

    ION, Marching band camp has started. Yay for spending eight hours a day outside in upper 90 degree weather. We've been spending a massive amount of time on basic marching skills lately, which is good, but it's incredibly boring. And I have sunburn. But I have come across this AMAZING green sludgy stuff called Aloe, and it helps significantly. =3

    Based on his/her location, I would venture the guess that the oranges s/he's accustomed to are the sweeter, jucier and generally tastier oranges that don't grow in the summer, and not those large, dry, tasteless, thick-peeled balls that I would get if I tried to buy one this time of the year.

    Also, new thread, I see...
    Hooray for having beaten a bunch of missions!

    And yup, new thread

    Anyway, I forget. Are you home yet? Also, how are you doing Teddy?

    Yes, oranges are a summer fruit I don't know why there would be a problem with getting them...

    Have you seriously been spending that long outside? O.o Because that is a very long time to be out there...

    I just saw his location and Teddy's post, maybe they don't have oranges in Israel this time of year, or they aren't very good.


    Mhmm, roughly. 8-12 in the morning, and then we go back outside in the afternoon for another three-four hours if it isn't too hot.

    No, but they have... pomegranates.

    That is completely ridiculous.

    Welcome to my life the last week and a half. We haven't been doing as much basics as it sounds like you have, but man oh man is it HOT. We've already had a couple kids pass out.

    we had pre-camp-ish stuff for half the day last week, full camp started this week. We're taking forever to set drill this year because we're spending lots of time making out marching perfect before hand, and it's rather frustrating and I'm not really sure if it'll really work to our advantage or not.
    We haven't had anyone pass out yet, but that might be due to the fact that we have to wear nifty Camelbak water things so we can drink water any time we want to without having to wait for a break.

    Ah, we don't have that luxury. No we don't really worry about getting marching perfect until like October, since that's when State competitions are. I'm a little disappointed in the fact that I didn't get any new members to my section this year, though

    We have competitions coming up soon-ish, but it's still worrying that we're taking so long.

    We have one new piccolo to my section, she's alright. We have some other freshman that I actually like this year (last year's were awful) though, which is good.
