Hullo, people!

The doors are open again, and the first rounds are on the house.

The door sign says:

This is meant to be a place where you can talk about anything without having to stay on topic. Feel free to ask questions, to talk about the things in your life you like to share with your fellow-members. Or just step inside for a while, have a coffe and a good chat!
You may feel free to post whatever you like as long as it is within the rules of the forum.
But if the conversation degrades to spam, you will be treated as though you are spamming anywhere else on the forum. This is a thread where you can relax and talk about personal things, but it is not to be used as an excuse to make pointless posts.
Please help to keep this alive and well and a place where we can meet and share.
Enjoy your stay here!!! wink.gif  biggrin.gif


Before digging into the cookie-barrels, though... Behold - and behold ye well - the slightly more elaborate rules addendum.
QUOTE(Alexander @ May 29 2005, 11:47 AM)
We had intended the coffee shop to be a nice place where people could talk about their daily activities and such, kinda like the Lurkers Lair on the Official Forums.
It didn't quite turn out that way though, people have been taking advantage of their freedoms in here, there has been a lot of spamming and even some flaming. We will not tolerate that any longer.
So unfortunately we've had to decide to increase the rules for this thread. Of course the normal forum rules still apply, but we'll elaborate here.:
1. No spamming.
We consider double posting and posting posts with only a few words to be spam. If you do that your post will be deleter or moved, do it too often and you might receive a warning for it.
We also consider chit-chat spam. This forum has a special chat channel for chatting, you're welcome to go there, and chat with other members or with the staff as we're always there, doing it in here is not allowed.
The address to that chatroom is:
W4O chat
And for assistence to use a chat like this, I recommend looking over this thread:
http://forums.waiting4oblivion.com/viewtopic.php?t=248
Or contacting one of the Administrators.
2. No discussion of accounts or warnings.
There shall be no more discussion about members, about accounts, about how many warnings you've gotten or anything like that.
3. No trolling.
No posting of random nonsense, no posting of irrelevant things, no posting the same thing over and over just to get it noticed, no swearing or flaming.
4. No religion or politics.
No discussion about religion or politics is to be had in these threads. If you want to discuss religion or politics, please do make another thread, or if another such thread already exists, please post in it.
If you have a question about the rules of the forums, feel free to ask it to either a Global Moderator or an Administrator.
If you're unsure if something is fit to post here, it might be. Again best to ask a Global Moderator or Administrator.
If you're wondering how we think a Lair or the Coffee Shop should look like, what we do allow, then I recommend taking a look at the Lurkers Lair at the Official Forums.

Mmmm.... cake for breakfast! Anyone else really love cake for breakfast?

I remember a vacation in Greece - Crete to be precise - that me and my family went on when I was very young (I think I must have been between 3 and 6). It was the easter holidays, and to celebrate this very important holiday, the tv was on all day shoing the patriarch of the greek-orthodox church leading the ceremony with a lot of chanting and such, and they offered cake and orange juice for breakfast, in addition to all the normal things you'd expect. It was a new concept to me and I liked it! Mmmm, cake! I just woke up and I could really go for some cafe au lait and cake right now!

I just wanted to menation i was not refering to Croatians or Bosnians.I'm half-Croatian myself and i would never say something like that.
I was refering to southern tribes we were in war 6-7 years ago.
Now if i have to judge them by their actions on Kosovo......well,my comment still stands.

I know that my post breaks rule 4 but i REALLY had to say this....
Anyway as i said i really don't like talking about it.
Just wanted to clear things up.

I do!
But not strong cake.Not too sweet.
Something light like a fruit cake.




Anyway since this is a coffee-shop.....How do you like your coffee?With sugar?Cream?Something else?
Myself i like a strong black coffee,with no sugar,cream or whatever.
Ugh,those things just strip away the aroma.

I can understand your aversion to sugaring your coffee. I do like my coffee with cream though. I'll drink it black if I must, though. My favorite type of caffeinated beverage is of cause cafe au lait and a good latte macchiato.

Good luck on your pharmacy exams, Foster. You sound like a very interesting and well-rounded person. You'd probably get along famously with my sister out in Berkeley, Calif. who is a world traveler as well.
She travels quite often to Europe, sometimes with her company, sometimes on vacation. Her very favorite country is Italy though. She and her friend from San Francisco visit and stay with her friend's grandparents in Northern Italy ... so she feels very at home there and speaks fluent Italian.

When I said sugar/caffeine rush ... I meant cake/coffee high. But I must admit that my favorite kind of coffee is cappucino ... which I'm sure has sugar in it somewhere. biggrin.gif

Thanks, though to be honest I don't really care if I pass or fail too much. Five years has kind of just sucked all will to live out of me, and I'm only sitting them because everyone else whinges at me if I don't. There's very little you can do with a Masters in Pharmacy other than be a Pharmacist, in practical terms.

And I'm really not a well-rounded person, though its nice of you to say. I'm pretty much an boatmaster. Certainly I'm the only pharmacy student that I've ever known with a green mohawk and a habit of referring to the governing body as an evil coven of witches. Still, in one month and a few days, it'll all be over. Kind of like a really strange lucid dream.


Oh, and I don't really know what to make of Italy. I've only been to Rome, but it's a very strange place. Everything is so fast and passionate, yet so much seems uncared for and unloved. Rome itself is a horrible mess of dilapidated housing and mad driving, but through all that as you walk around you realise that it's more. Every time you turn the corner you discover some relic that time has forgotten, an incredible masterpiece of Bernini, a piaza surrounded by magnificent churches, a 2000 year old building roaring with majestic power. It's a real Indiana Jones type city - treasures waiting to be discovered in what initially appears to be just a backward, almost provincial, city that needs a little attention and love.

I think my favorite country is probably Austria.

Wish you good luck with you're exams Foster wink.gif

It's pretty much morning for me now at 12:18... Waiting for my fresh baguette to cool down a little bit. Great weather and very warm here in Norway today, around 21 degrees due to the warm weather in Serbia was it?

So today I'm going to fix my bike and all that, clean it, oil it and all that stuff. Play some football with friends hopefully, pluss that I'm going to take some pic's of my fathers newly bought Harley cool.gif

Well I'm gonna make myself a sandwich now biggrin.gif

Quoting Wikipedia:

"A latte macchiato is a latte (espresso with steamed milk topped with foam), but instead of having the espresso shots on the bottom, pouring the espresso on top of the foam. These shots should also be ristretto shots, which are shots taken out about halfway through the duration of the pull. You are left with half a shot, containing the crema and some of the body. This shot is considered sweeter because it does not contain the "heart"."

I know this is coming out of the blue totally, but seeing as how you can ask questions here I thought I would, rather than start a thread to ask a question. One of the first things I learnt on the forums is never to ask for help because you just get told to shut up. Anyway, you know the role-playing forum? Is that solely for Oblivion/Elder Scrolls stuff? Because I know about an RPG that might starting over pbem that has absolutely nothing to do with the Elder scrolls, and wasn't sure if it was worth mentioning it or not.

I seriously don't see what people see in Coffee, though. Can't stand the stuff, it's like black poison. A nice cup of tea with a squirt of cow juice though, that goes down a right treat.

Well,a lot of people can't understand how can you drink a tea with milk! blink.gif
I know that's quite common in England,but not much everywhere else laugh.gif

Coffee has a certain aroma......A good aroma.Maybe you just didn't have a GOOD cup of coffee biggrin.gif

Actually, that would depend on the type of tea. Some types go really very well with milk: assam for instance. It's a strong, "bland" aroma that can use a strong partner like milk.

It would be sacrilege to taint the subtle aroma of a fine Darjeeling with anything, though.

It is kind of bitter though. You stop noticing it after a short while, but not everyone is fond of that. Also, a lot of people really like the smell but not the taste. I used to be one of them! I only got into drinking coffee when I was doing civil service, and mainly because I had to cook so much of it and never had a way of knowing if it was any good biggrin.gif
