Thanks for trying the challenge. I’ll miss seeing you in there!
I might try again one day when it comes around again. Thanks for hosting and being such a lovely lady
Fear not, for I am here!
What happened to not wanting to join? Haha
Never said I wouldn't join the forum! It was the moving my body part.
No way man, you said you weren’t sure about the forum, but you’d do fitness stuff with me
I think you are quite mistaken. LOL.
Hey, kinda pumped we got to interact today. I feel like we haven't much before, and you're obviously cool a.f. so hey.
Hi! It’s super exciting. You’re a super cool person. Also I love your hair omg, just putting that out there. Thanks for the astrology stuff I saved mine to my notes :3
Right back at ya! Thank you that's very kind of you to say, and that's so cute you saved it! I love messing around with that stuff (obviously); any deep dive into what makes people tick, I'm interested. I love everyone's different personalities and individual characteristics. It gives me a positive outlook on humanity, especially when it's hard to have faith in people these days.
Aside from the astrology stuff from today, what other sort of personality type things do you enjoy? And of course I saved it! I like having insight in to myself. I have an easier time getting along with people when I understand myself :3
Oh gosh corny things, like the Myers Briggs (even though Corporate environments can make these annoying), True Colors Personality test, general psych tests - I think you said it best, I enjoy expanding my knowledge of self so I can relate better to people!
I feel like there should be a thread dedicated to personality stuff, it’s cool stuff!
You've asked for it
I like you and your presence very much. Sunshine is a name that fits you well :3
-insert overwhelmed smiling emote here-
And same to you! Baking + books = bff material
I thought that said boots and I was like, “I love boots! How did you know??” But of course it says books and I love those too
Colu feel better! I really feel for you and hope things go well at your appointment tomorrow. Also if necessary cloves may help numb the pain as they did for my wisdom teeth.
Thanks! I’ll keep the cloves in mind, in case I need to numb pain. I cleaned my mouth and took some ibuprofen as soon as it happened. I figured it’s probably best my mouth is clean and the ibuprofen will prevent any swelling! The main source of discomfort is the broken tooth rubbing against the inside of my lip. Also, it sounds funny if I say anything with an f sound haha
Hey! How’d it go today?
Well, there was absolutely no pain! Turns out, this is the tooth I’ve had a root canal, so there’s no nerves in the tooth, which means no pain! It’s fixed now, you can’t even tell that part of my tooth isn’t real
ME TOO BAKING
but in all seriousness, what kindof bread are you making? I love making chocolate banana and I really want to make a cranberry nut bread soon.
Plus I got an awesome baking cookbook for christmas that I can't wait to dive into.
Okay okay okay, what’s your favourite thing to bake?? Any techniques you swear by?? Experimental, stick to recipe like a T?? How often bake??
I usually just do a white bread! I used to always do sourdough, but I’ve had to take a break from it because my starter turned bad. Once I’ve figured out a more overall baking schedule, I’ll probably start doing sourdough again. I’m missing out on a lot of my recipes right now (biscuits, crumpets, crackers, etc) because they’re all sourdough based!
Thanks for liking my Origin stories! Would you like one too??
Hello, I'm Guinea. How are you?
i read too fast and thought you spelled your name wrong. i'm good! how are you??
I'm ok, just listening to the rain and playing Chrono Trigger. It's been raining for days :/
here too! i like the rain though, so i don't get bummed out by it haha
Are there any giraffes in Canada??
only in zoos!
Hey Colu! How are you doing!
(btw I was epicstar back on Lamia, just so you aren't confused )
hiiii! i'm good! how are you??
(i knew who you are haha, good of you to let me know though )
Just making sure!
I'm doing okay. Did you go anywhere for the holidays?
nah, we stayed home! we were gonna visit my parents for new years, but our car needed sudden work (new ignition tumbler and keys)!
I'm sorry to hear that. Was it expensive to fix?
It wasn't too expensive (and cheaper than we thought it was going to be), but they had to wait for a part to come in, so it took some time
I just wanted to say I appreciate you welcoming all our newbies. If you ever want to be an adopter here, I'd be happy to make you one.
Thanks Tru! I never have anything original to say, but I do like welcoming people!
Sometimes just a simple "Hello and welcome to ZU!" like you've been doing can go a long way into making this place seem friendly and inviting. I'm sure they all appreciate it. I know I do.
Merry Christmas Colu!
How's my favourite canadian giraffe doing?
hello, merry christmas! i'm gooood. stayed up late and slept in haha. how are you??
Yes, me too! I'm okay, enjoying the vacation and having more time for Zelda!
Hi friend !!
not bad, how's it hanging?
it's going okay; i'm trying to figure out if i wanna workout tonight or not. i'm having some fun watching sports and not really feeling the gym, but i should go ;;
watcha up to?
working out seems to be all the rage! i'm not sure i'd have the gumption to do it, myself. it's important to keep routine though, isn't it?
not doing a whole lot. i got a bit chilly, so i'm taking refuge in some blankets. but i'm tempted to take a peek outside
Might I suggest going to sleep a while, so that you can have the energy to bake all you want?
that would be really smart! i try not to do baking too late in the evening though because they have a baby upstairs. tonight i've decided to take it easy, maybe play some games, practice my calligraphy a bit! i really like writing the word fondue, it just looks so appealing. looking at your name though, i think amber might be a really nice one to try too.
Amber is very simple to write, but also very pleasing to look at as well.
Also. Maybe you like writing fondue, because you're fond -oof it. /is shot
G I R A F F I D A E
Wh- what are you now?
You're no longer a giraffe?
How can you do this to me?!?
i'm the pink power ranger! if it makes you feel better, i will always have a giraffe on my arm (tattoo). so, i'm truly without my giraffe!
Phew, that does make me feel better!
Also sorry it took me this long to add you on Steam, you acted first, lol!
i forgot i even did that haha, so no worries!
Avy's changing all over the place!
just trying to find who i am haha
Aren't we all o-o
I love your okapi. I first saw one at a Zoo near Chicago, iirc. Neat animals.
thank you! they're really cool looking
I'm unsure of what your new avy is. What is it; A hybrid animal?
Haha, it's an okapi (a real animal). They look like a weird zebra horse thing, but they're actually most closely related to the giraffe! The giraffe and okapi are the only two living members of the Giraffidae family
Sometimes the okapi are called forest giraffe or zebra giraffe
Here's a picture of a real one
And here I thought I was looking at an animal with robot legs. haha
I know, it totally looks like it has robot legs in my avatar haha
Giraffes are critically endangered.
they are! i'd like to one day have a giraffe themed party/gathering for the purpose of making them more known and their status
real moodlifter to break the ice huh, serenity
hey, it's vital info!
vital information for your everyday life
I'm a moody person.
Colu, the mighty dragon of Canada, protector of the giraffes, defender of the weak and helpless!
Behold her Giwrath!
Is this your battle cry? XD
nah, that one is still in the works. that was my greeting cry!
Ah, I see. I unfortunately don't have a greeting cry, so I have to greet you normally instead:
"Hi Cooooluuuu! "
Would love to hear your battle cry when it is finished.
i will perfect my battle cry. and then, i will find a tape recorder, record my battle cry, and mail the cassette to you!
I noticed that your avatar has a transparent background on your profile. Seeing as it was meant to have a transparent background I figured I'd quickly make this for you: imgur.com/12UFPQo
It's the same avatar, but with a working transparent background. I tested it and it looks pretty nice. You don't have to use it if you don't want to. It only took a few seconds to make anyway so it's not like I had to work really hard on it. I just figured you might like this version better than the one you're using.
I must mention that using it will make the animated giraffe on you wall no longer animated. So if you care about that I wouldn't bother using it.
thanks! i will save that. but for now i will stick with the one i have at the moment though! i think it's really funny that it's animated only on my wall lmao
