Re: Unique Ice Cream Flavors

I am going to shock a lot of people I think: I love ice cream with gooey salt liquorice in it and the more the better. That's absolutely delicious. Sadly you don't get it here so I have to go to Denmark and visit my parents to get it (Unlike other things, it's a bit hard to order over the internet a...

Re: What Do You Crave?

Fries. Very plain and simple XD I'd love some fries. The crunchy warm taste of those would just be gorgeous. And maybe with nuggets to go along with them... that would be even more delicious.

Re: Beautiful Buildings

I did as a matter of fact visit a couple such places. One was a townhouse in my birthtown which had been kept exactly as it had been when the last occupant died - a very old lady from the aristocracy who had no heirs so she left her money to be spent keeping this house in order and viewable by the p...

Re: Happy Birthday, Gail!

Thank you all so much! I had a great day! Went to a lovely restaurant for dinner and then a movie afterwards.

And Sky - the decorations are lovely, but true story: yesterday at work one of the tables in my classroom at school was missing. I now know who to blame :P
