I figured we could start this for talking about food and leave the accomplisment thread for accomplishments so, ahem, some people can talk about pants in peace.

I like tea. Preferably Earl Grey, but Irish Breakfast and a few green flavors are okay too.

And, I'm looking forward to the Lightning Thief movie despite not being a teenager.

You?

LoL! Have we ever had a thread that stays on topic? You guys are so great at answering questions that we have to go off topic to keep things interesting!

:) It is why I love our forum so much, we rock.

Tea is great, a dark tea in the morning with a bit of milk is a nice wake me up. I'm also a fan of cold ginger-peach during the summer.

My Husband gave me the Egbert figure. It was a total waste of money, but when I'm at work on the phone with some brainless idiot and I look down into those cute buggy eyes... I have a bit more tolerance for the person on the other side.

Haha, one of my classmates refused some water I offered him with an unfriendly "I'm a mage, I can make my own water!". He then pointed out that he was also clearly wearing cloth armour and had a high intellect.
He's a DK.


On tea, this, always. I am so happy they're delivering to the UK now! I will order some as soon as I have a job and other expenses (such as travel and a certain expansion I still haven't bought) are out of the way.

Unfortunately, I'm not used to caffeine anymore, so if I drink a cup of tea after noon, I'll stay away all night. Happens without tea, too, sometimes.


Also, I've started a new baby priest today and got her to level 8, yay!

We all know that in your heart you'll be forever 15, small, enthralled and confused by the mystical wonderous world of Warcraft ;P

Anyway, I like pretty much all sorts of teas, though I'm not a fan of really sweet ones. I have also become acquainted with the way the English drink their milk, and I must say that though it is an odd practice, I can enjoy the ocassional cup of milk with tea.

Earl Grey or Lemon tea, no milk just sugar.
And definitely no awful "hip" flavours like autumn sunrise or god knows what kind of hippy names they give tea, absolutely disgusting.
Not a fan of green tea either, but it's doable.

Also, since it was new year's eve last night I feel obliged to post a link to Oliebollen!
Best thing about new year's eve.
In fact, we have some left.
I'm going to go get myself one and a nice hot cup of tea.


And Mothra, SMITE SPEC FTW!

I changed my mind and went with coffee over tea.


And I found an image of the priest forums.
As well as a before picture of the druid forums, I don't think anyone there has been conscious enough to take an after picture yet.
There's also the hunter forums and (beware!) the OoT.

Putting milk or sugar or anything else in your tea is like speccing for Lightwell. Even if it's working for you, deep down you know you're doing it wrong.

I put milk in crappy cheap black tea to mask the flavour of fail. For anything else, no milk, no sugar.

Yeah, happy new year!

I think this year, I might want to get at least one character beyond level 40 or so again, especially since I have someone nice to play with now.
Seriously, I've started over too many times in this game and the highest level character I have that I am actually willing to play is level 30. I wish I had money for a server transfer for my 70 priest from 2 years ago.

They are not.
The cookie is different, the syrup inside is the same.
I prefer Stroopkoeken, although if you put a stroopwafel on a hot cup of tea for a few minutes it'll warm up and get soft and then they are awesome.

Not necessarily teacake we get sweet biscuits here in the UK which are clearly not crackers yet are designed for eating with cheese. Hence the phrase 'cheese and biscuits', although in the spirit of 'favourite cookies' I don't think they count since I don't equate cookies to biscuits as such. Cookies for me are the american chewy type of thing wheras biscuits are crumbly and crisp. Don't even get me started on jaffa cakes.

I think biscuits are called cookies in America, too, though. At least some sorts. I'd think Digestives qualify as cookies, for example.

I like the Triple Chocolate cookies from Sainsbury's, if we go by your definition.


Also, tomorrow off college due to snow! Having had all week off already, this makes for a very long Christmas break. :3

I installed my free upgrade to Windows 7 yesterday. What a *****. For anyone doing this anytime soon, it's even worse about permissions than Vista was. Could not run WoW for hours while trying to assure it that I am the administrator and I can run it as admin (or do anything else with it) if I want. After a while I found the advice about taking ownership of the WoW folder, but that was not enough, as it just would not apply it to the subfolders no matter how nicely I checked the little box. I had to take ownership of every subfolder and a random bunch of files as well.

But now that it's running it seems nice.

In other news, I feel that we don't use this smiley enough: Smiley: yippee

I keep wow on my secondary drive, then I can reformat my boot drive any time I feel the need. Running Windows 7, 64 bit at the moment. I also keep several backups of wow and the entire system. Backing up my pc, my son's, and wife's is entirely automated and saves to network attached storage at my house.

It helps that I'm a geek who supports a corporate network of over 500 pc's at work. Smiley: tongue

Nerd.

I did back up my stuff before the upgrade but was all concerned with stupid real life stuff and forgot to copy my WoW folder over. I considered using the old folder on my backup drive anyway and just moving my current WTF and Add-ons folders over, but once I figured out how to get access to those to move them, it was the same answer for the rest, and that was faster than downloading the three patches my backup copy was missing.

But hey, it saved my wallpaper, so it's got that covered.

However, after all was said and done our computers have never run so smooth. I haven't had an issue with windows 7 and wow/curse since. :)

I noticed we haven't talked about food in a while, so I would like to know your favourite chocolateries/chocolate brands.

Mine are all European (but not Belgian), namely Zotter (they have lots of flavours that sound icky but work really well) from Austria, and Michel Cluizel (warning, link is noisy!) (I love their "plain" chocolates, especially the Maralumi and the Noir Infini kinds) from France.

Blatant advertising go! They don't pay me, at least.


I like testing new chocolates, and I do have a few Belgian names on my to try list, but I don't have the money for that sort of thing most of the time and unfortunately, stuff like Lindt falls into the "cheap fix" category for me.

For the cheap fix, I actually prefer Galaxy or Cadbury Flake or Fudge bars.

Also, Darqflame sent me a box of 'Merican ones last year, they were very very nice, considering what I had when I lived on the other side of the pond.

Burdick's chocolate is fabulous, but spendy.

And lowbrow though it may be, I am all about the Terry's Chocolate Orange.

They are still low-grade chocolate in my book. I'm so spoiled. I haven't had any good chocolate in months.

Teacake, if you want (and if I have money at some point), I can help you stock up sometime. After all, I'm the OoT's €uropean Sweet Supplier™.

You know my opinion all ready.

As a side note. I am strongly thinking of Dual Speccing my priest.

First spec the standard Disc spec.

Second spec being a dire abomination of a shield spam, Rapture regen and DPS. As shown here.

Big shields, renew does a lot, FH is strong. Smite, Mind Sear and Holy Fire for DPS.

Shield and renew spam for healing with FH as needed.

No BT hasted MS but I will make a separate gear set for the spec. H HoR and other hard heroics I will use the real healing spec but FoS and easier the LOLDPSWHILEHEALING spec.

Opinions?

I recently had to explain to my roommate the difference between margarine and butter.

Butter is so win for so many things.

Just to chip in about chocolate, you cannot beat Booja Booja stuff, totally dairy free so suitable for the vegans amongst us - however, am not sure if you can get them outside the UK.

When I was in the States a few years ago, I found some Peanut Butter M&M's...fell in love with them, but of course, you cannot get them here. If there was one thing to turn me back to lacto-vegetarian, it would be them!
