Yes, that's right, Ladies and Gentlemen!
The Off-Topic Topic is here!
And for a limited time only, if you buy my new Random Taco-Toast-Toaster along with using the Off-Topic Topic, you can recieve a free Container of Ice-cream Gargle Mouthwash!
Not just Ice-Cream flavoured, it *IS* ice-cream, and therefore defeating the purpose of even gargling mouthwash!
Hahahaha!
Okay, so, I have no recolection of one of these being on the old forum, but I figured it was a good idea anyway.
Basically the purpose of this thread is to talk about no single topic, just to wander from topic to topic like the majority of those of us who are communicably savvy.
And it can also be a dumping ground for Mods who want to move off-topic posts; please just put "In the continuation of the (insert name of thread here) thread"
So, go, my children (though some of you seem to be considerably older than me...) and post!
Post to your little hearts content!

**goes and gargles Ice-cream**

((and yes, I am expecting this thread to die several times))

And it died.

Yay for Cowboy Bebop reference!

I think you gargle the ice cream after it melts and is just cream...with lots of stuff in it.

o.O

Do YOU know the muffin man?

::in a rare display, actually glomps Spegg::

Cowboy Bebop... means more to me than I think I could ever, possibly explain. The story of why it means so much to me is almost as beautiful as the story of Cowboy Bebop. Of course, we saw so much deeper into the story that summer, because in our own way we lived it...

Cowboy Bebop wrote:
(Spike)Did you ever hear this story...?

There was once a tiger-striped cat.
This cat died a million deaths, and was reborn a million times...
and was owned by various people who he didn't care for.
The cat wasn't afraid to die

One day, the cat was a free cat, a stray cat.
He met a white female cat, and the two cats spent their days happily together.
Years passed, and the while cat died of old age.
The tiger-striped cat cried a million times, and then died.
It never came back to life.

(Jett)That's a good story
(Spike)I hate that story. I hate cats.
(Jett with a smile)Oh, that's right...


There were three of us living there, over the summer. In a lot of ways, we really found ourselves (or lost ourselves, maybe both) by watching those same twenty-six episodes over and over again, and trying to figure out who we were going to become by trying to figure out who we were. The layers of those characters, if you care to look long and hard, are deep and layered indeed. We lost so much sleep, and put in long hours at work, but formed eternal bonds between the three of us.

Now, an extra-special bonus cookie if you can figure out which part I played in the trio. And no cheating by listening to your internal monologue! Wink

Which implies that it will either be resurrected or re-created several times... just what are you up to, Earthman?

Jett, 'cause you're always nice, even when the person you're talking to didn't mean for that to be the thing you pick up on. ^_^

lol, cookie to Asa then.. The apartment was in my name, and I did almost all the housework plus the cooking. When our trio broke apart, all three of us were at a loss as to how to move on... And jokingly, my open door policy for friends was related to how the Bebop seemed to accumulate people. As Spike used to say... "I hate kids, women, and dogs... so why are all three of those things on this ship?!" as Edd runs by followed by Ein, then Faye...

It's kinda difficult to explain Bebop but if you've ever spent a summer just wandering about with no prospects for the future and no particular care for the past, quite a lot of it matches up well.

"Cowboy Bebop"?
I've heard of it, have, like, a bazillion friends who watch it, but I don't...
What reference was I making?
@ Tyris:
"Earthman?", honey, I ain't no man, as I tole' you bahfore!
Don' make make me change color on you, 'now...
@ Lilirath:
I never said the icecream was melted or semi-solid, I just said it was gargle mouthwash....
@ Tenshi:
I'm sorry, I cannot accept your glomp, though it means so very, very much, because I didn't even realize I was making any references to CB, and anything I've said in that passage is my own words, 'cause I ain't never heard them before anywhere else... **sadly hands back glomp**

Sorry, you can't hand back a glomp! We'll just say it's for reminding of of good times, then. Even though Nem hit the nail on the head with the way it felt... it was simple in an insanely complex way. Whyever it worked the way it did... it felt like home.

The unintentional reference relates to one episode which leaves us with Lesson #4: Don't leave stuff in the fridge. ( because their forgotten food actually did come alive )

Were you referencing Weird Al then? "It's living in the fridge!"

Je suis "lilirath"? Yay, new name! From hence forth I will be Li-li~ (er...how 'bout no?)

Or we can just run in circles like puppies with excess energy gargling ice-cream mouthwash until the sun comes up. That sounds like a plan....

Your gender is irrelevant, Earthman. Wink

'Nu, don't know if you've noticed but there's an inherent flaw in the plan anyway... Razz
