¿ question of the day ? for December 20th MST, inspired by our comrade Tippy La Rue:

When will you know you've "made it?"

Marcus Bales 12-20-2007 11:06 AM

coffee or tea? and do you have a favorite kind?

Bman 12-20-2007 03:30 PM

• Because everyone will say how much it sucks compared to the first one.

• I don't really love coffee or tea, but in my experience I love everything coffee flavored and hate most things tea flavored.

Angry Kid Hoyt 12-20-2007 03:43 PM

When will you know you've "made it?"

When I no longer feel the need to explain myself to my parents.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Coffee or tea? and do you have a favorite kind?

Both
I'll drink any coffee… preferably cold.
Lapsang souchong is my default hot tea & I prefer a milky gunpowder for cold tea.

lukkucairi 12-20-2007 04:31 PM

1) I just did. 86% is a pass.

2) both, either.

auntie aubrey 12-20-2007 05:04 PM

When will you know you've "made it?"

i listen to my gut and assume it will let me know.

Coffee or tea? and do you have a favorite kind?

both. although between 1998 and november of 2007 the answer would have been "tea only." regarding favorite kind of tea, i'd have to go with jasmine. no preferred coffee, i'm not that refined.

i'm touched and honored :)

When will you know you've "made it?"

Now. It will wear off sooner than i'd like, so i'm trying to make the best of it while it lasts :)


Coffee or tea? and do you have a favorite kind?

coffee - italian style ristretto.

i like tea a lot too though, and i drink it when i'm too tired to drink coffee, which happens with long term fatigue. In that case, i enjoy a nice celestial seasonings, "perfectly pear" (best enjoyed while listening to Nathan Fake - Peary Land) or "Goji Berry".

Generally speaking, all the CC's are good.

brightpearl 12-20-2007 07:35 PM

congrats lukku!

on making it:

Hmmm. I'm not sure that point can ever be reached in a permanent sense. I think you make it anew in each moment.

Or:
When I finally get off my ass and get something published.

One of those.

On cafe vs. tea:
Can't choose, love both. French pressed coffee, and I share Tip's penchant for CC. I love the greens, and the Chai, and the Apple Cinnamon, and the Almond Sunset is to die for, but I can't find it any more. :(
I also really adore this ginger lemon that my friend keeps, but I don't know the brand. It's spicy.

query for friday the 21st...


Your earliest memory?

Marcus Bales 12-21-2007 12:22 PM

A Terrible Infant

I RECOLLECT a nurse call'd Ann
Who carried me about the grass,
And one fine day a fine young man
Came up and kiss'd the pretty lass.
She did not make the least objection!
Thinks I, "Aha!
When I can talk I'll tell Mamma" --
And that's my earliest recollection.

WANT "BUG OFF" TEE SHIRT WANT WANT

I was 18 months old, or thereabouts.

madasacutsnake 12-21-2007 06:36 PM

Eating snow from the doorstep. I was fifteen months.

craig johnston 12-21-2007 06:44 PM

injustice

being blamed for something i didn't do, and not being able to explain.

T.I.P. 12-21-2007 06:54 PM

saying "bye bye" to my dad and realizing that he did not speak the same language as my mom

brightpearl 12-21-2007 08:02 PM

I'm not positive, but I think it was finding some ladybug larvae. The stench of them is burned into my brain...I think I must have put my fingers in my mouth. Even seeing a picture of them now makes me queasy. I also remember seeing my grandmother in her coffin, in a flowered dressing gown. Both very strong, very old memories.

DECKARD: Yea... ...and a hundred baby spiders came out... and they ate her. ..................Implants. Those aren't your memories, they're somebody else's. They're Tyrell's niece's. ..................O.K., bad joke... I made a bad joke. You're not replicants. Go home, o.k? No really, I'm sorry, go home.

^ gave me a happy :D

It's hazy, but I remember crouching over some rocks with my oldest friend. We were staring very solemnly at something, in that completely-concentrated-and-very-serious little kid way, but I forget at what...

Stephi_B 12-22-2007 08:32 AM

My grandpa playing lullabies for me on his zither.

22nd december - today's ¿ question of the day ?


what do you think it would be like to be swallowed whole by a pacific blue whale?

lukkucairi 12-22-2007 11:53 AM

a bit like this:


Odbe 12-23-2007 01:59 AM

Like being tossed into the refuse bin of a Japanese seafood restaurant during a flood.

Would that be the north pacific blue whale or the south pacific blue whale?

madasacutsnake 12-23-2007 05:38 AM

Not as bad as having my MIL to stay.

You ask my thoughts
through the long night?
I spent it listening
to the heavy rain
beating against the windows

pardon the poetic license with the meanings of "fish" and "swallowed"

brightpearl 12-23-2007 07:22 PM

Made my mom a cool necklace, and my son is getting a nerf compound bow.

Frieda 12-23-2007 08:35 PM

i can't post that here because it's for my cousin and he sometimes lurks here--

so i'll tell the 2nd best: a picture frame with 9 pictures of the france vacation this summer, for my uncle & aunt

xfox 12-23-2007 10:28 PM

A mini fridge / warmer to my brother for his truck.

auntie aubrey 12-24-2007 02:04 AM

a ps3 for the spouse, which i spent the last 2 months vehemently campaigning against as "the #1 thing i don't want in this house" in order to throw him off. i actually gave it to him today because of an odd series of events and he just stared blankly at me for several moments, trying to comprehend this thing i was giving him.

Jack Flanders 12-24-2007 03:33 AM

the first year of Twin Peaks. for him - yeah. :rolleyes: ;) :)

trisherina 12-24-2007 03:46 AM

Patience, kindness, and good humour. I spent a bunch of money too, but these seem to be the things people really like best!

Frieda 12-24-2007 05:53 AM

^ pageant winner ;) :D


and auntie-- i can just picture him standing there with this big WTF on his face :D

Anna 12-24-2007 06:44 AM
