I've been a fan of Glenlivet for a while. There's a particular type that has a more charcoal taste that I can't recall--that's my favorite.

Might be the 15yr.  I know it's different that their flagship 12 & 18 varieties, but I can't remember how off the top of my head.


The usual suspects in my cupboard:




And, because this is a snobbery thread, Perfect Manhattans (though I suppose a real snob would have strained them, meh):


Where do you live? We need to be bros.

We were out in the canyons of waste when she said something like "I really have no idea where I'm going'. No sooner than it was said the sarge walked off a cliff down a deep hole. Lucky for me this was my first experience with the new follow code so I and the other bynner following didn't go down as well.

I had a similar experience. I once rulled up a mul and played in Red Storm, where I was greeted by another mul who had a very similar desc to mine. We joked around, we bonded together, he took me under his wing. It was a cute moment. They go out hunting together, eventually, and my pseudo-twin says "Just be careful about the beetles out here. You should be able to kill pretty much anything else, but sometimes those beetles are too much."

The VERY NEXT ROOM, a beetle enters from a blind direction, reel-locks him and three-shots him. I lead the beetle off and proceed to loot my doppelganger-mentor. Thanks, whoever you were, for the head start on the new character, the hilarious comedic timing, and the sdesc-Highlander THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE moment.

16-oz Starbucks hot chocolate: 400 calories. But that's 2 cups of hot chocolate. The packets of Swiss Mix (and similar) only make an 8-ounce cup, and each of them is around 150 calories (so, 300 calories for a 16-ounce cup using 2 packs of dried mix). But they're crap, made with milk powder and water and taste like chocolate-flavored sugar-water.

Compare with cocoa you can make scratch on the stove:

1 tablespoon Girardelli unsweetened cocoa powder: 15 calories
2 teaspoons garden variety normal sugar:  32 calories
1 cup 2% milk: 124 calories

15+32+124=   171, or 342c per 2-cup serving

I use whole milk so it's even more calorific, but I only make 1 cup, not 2.

RAT: I think I have the flu. I think I'll make myself a cup of cocoa now.

McCafe, honestly. I was eating it with an Egg McMuffin maybe once a week. But fuck me. Almost 400 cals. Fuuuuck.

Why is it that out of the four classes I take each semester, it's almost guaranteed that two of them will be great and two of them will be awful?

I'm so done with two of my courses.  Constant assignment rearrangements, half the material won't show up until the week before it's due and the way the Professor teaches is just..not conducive to my learning.

I totally enjoyed Kankfly's Sargeant. I enjoyed being part of her innocent runner days, then trooper days, then Sargeant days. As well as the affect on her by the weight of responsibility and how it turned a carefree youngster into a harsh-ish Byn Sargeant. I literally regretted being a non-mundane role when playing with her.


Sorry for the derail. Just you know ... awesomeness.

Aww, thank you! I think the reason why I had so much fun with her is because of all the PCs I've interacted with at that time. You guys rock.

Holes and I have an unspeakable relationship. It isn't the first time I died to holes.

Once, when I was a delf, I fled self and fell into a hole where there were 3 giths. Luckily I didn't die, and I managed to get out with my awesome delf agility. Then I ran into trouble again and fell down that same hole and passed out. That character lasted 3 RL days. I think Calavera was my imm at that time, I sent in a 'report' of sorts saying that I died, and he responded with, "I know, I was there."

Shaved head puts the focus on your face, I wouldn't do it, boss. Also, the muscles in my head that flex when I clench my jaw in frustration/anger are now plainly visible where my hair used to hide them.
