  • 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.

    Posted by Winnie

    • 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

      Posted by Colu

    • Hey! How’d it go today?

      Posted by Winnie

    • 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

  • BAKING

    Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • YES

      Posted by Colu

    • ME TOO BAKING

      Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • 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.

      Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • 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?? :D

      Posted by Colu

    • 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!

  • Hello, I'm Guinea. How are you?

    Posted by Guinea

    • i read too fast and thought you spelled your name wrong. i'm good! how are you??

      Posted by Colu

    • I'm ok, just listening to the rain and playing Chrono Trigger. It's been raining for days :/

      Posted by Guinea

    • here too! i like the rain though, so i don't get bummed out by it haha

      Posted by Colu

    • Are there any giraffes in Canada??

      Posted by Guinea

    • only in zoos!

      Posted by Colu

  • Hey Colu! How are you doing!

    (btw I was epicstar back on Lamia, just so you aren't confused :P )

    Posted by seobam

    • hiiii! i'm good! how are you??
      (i knew who you are haha, good of you to let me know though :) )

      Posted by Colu

    • Just making sure!

      I'm doing okay. Did you go anywhere for the holidays?

      Posted by seobam

    • nah, we stayed home! we were gonna visit my parents for new years, but our car needed sudden work (new ignition tumbler and keys)!

      Posted by Colu

    • I'm sorry to hear that. Was it expensive to fix?

      Posted by seobam

    • 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

      Posted by Colu

  • 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.

    Posted by TruEdge67

    • Thanks Tru! I never have anything original to say, but I do like welcoming people!

      Posted by Colu

    • 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.

      Posted by TruEdge67

  • Merry Christmas Colu!
    How's my favourite canadian giraffe doing?

  • Hi friend !!

    Posted by goronmario

    • hello friend!

      Posted by Colu

    • How's you?

      Posted by goronmario

    • not bad, how's it hanging?

      Posted by Colu

    • 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?

      Posted by goronmario

    • 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

      Posted by Colu

  • Might I suggest going to sleep a while, so that you can have the energy to bake all you want?

    Posted by Amber The Gay Fox

    • 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.

      Posted by Colu

    • 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

  • Wh- what are you now?
    You're no longer a giraffe?
    How can you do this to me?!? :(

    Posted by Romano-British Medli

    • 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!

      Posted by Colu

    • never truly*

      Posted by Colu

    • Phew, that does make me feel better! :)
      Also sorry it took me this long to add you on Steam, you acted first, lol!

      Posted by Romano-British Medli

    • i forgot i even did that haha, so no worries!

      Posted by Colu

  • Avy's changing all over the place!

    Posted by Lady Sunshine

  • I love your okapi. I first saw one at a Zoo near Chicago, iirc. Neat animals.

    Posted by zoraluigi

  • I'm unsure of what your new avy is. What is it; A hybrid animal?

    Posted by Amber The Gay Fox

    • yoooooooo

      Posted by Colu

    • Is this your battle cry? XD

      Posted by Romano-British Medli

    • nah, that one is still in the works. that was my greeting cry!

      Posted by Colu

    • 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.

      Posted by Romano-British Medli

    • i will perfect my battle cry. and then, i will find a tape recorder, record my battle cry, and mail the cassette to you!

      Posted by Colu

  • 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.

    Posted by TruEdge67

    • 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

      Posted by Colu

  • hallo

    Posted by goronmario

  • I have thought about your question thoroughly, and my conclusion and answer is:
    I grant you permission to boss me around, Colu!

    How are you doing?

    Posted by Romano-British Medli

    • alright, i get to be bossy! haha
      i'm good, you??

      Posted by Colu

    • Oh, a bossy Colu! :)
      I'm okay. School exams are slowly drawing nearer, but I feel prepared.

      Standard smalltalk opening (which I'm terrible at! XD ) :
      So... How's the weather in your town?
      Also, can I call Canada "Coluland" from now on?

      Posted by Romano-British Medli

    • it's chilly! dry today though. personally, i think canada has a better ring to it than coluland, but i'll allow it

      Posted by Colu

    • Hm, here in (West) Germany it begins to get cold too!
      Thank you for your allowance!
      Hm, however, if you say "Canada" has a better ring to it, I think I'll have to stick to this, oh mighty GiraphLady! If these are your orders...

      Posted by Romano-British Medli

    • i'm bossy enough at work, i don't need to boss you around too haha

      Posted by Colu

  • Lol I'm interested in what your thoughts are tbh. Comfortable sharing privately?

    Posted by Hazel

  • Hey Colu! :) How are you?
    You know, you are only 1.5 months older than me! I don't know why, but that's pretty cool! ^^
    Thanks for the following! I like that we're friends now.

    Posted by Romano-British Medli

    • because i'm older, does that mean i get to boss you around? haha, i'm kidding of course! how's it going? yay friendship!

      Posted by Colu

    • (Uh, Colu has noticed you! Quick, say something funny!)
      Uuhh... Giraffe...!
      ...
      I don't know, maybe? ... I'm doing alright... ZU is really a nice, comfortable and fun place to be around!
      Friendship is Giraffe! <3

  • I see you've discovered forum games lately. Be careful, they're one hell of a drug lol. They're the main reason my post count is so absurdly high for only being here a year and a half.

    • Guilty Gear? Do you play fighting games??

      Posted by Hazel

    • A little bit here and there. I'm not good and I haven't played most things. I used to play lots of the original Guilty Gear. And then (finally remembered what I played on PS3 lol) I used to really like playing BlazBlue: Contiuum Shift Extend (which I sometimes play still, thanks to PSNow lol). And lately I've mostly been playing Dead Or Alive 5 (in terms of fighting games anyway). Oh, and I also used to play the shit out of Tekken Tag Tournament on PS2

      Posted by Colu

  • my dude... you're kind of a ray of sunshine. you should keep being that.

    Posted by Hazel

    • Well no wonder why I'm so chilly, all my sunshine is gettin' out!

      Posted by Colu

    • That's no good! Ever consider investing in all-black clothing?

      Posted by Hazel

    • But then I'd never have the right shade of black and everyone would notiiiiice. I like my colours! Especially my greeeeen jeans~ And my pale grey jeans! And and...I need more jeans :P

      Posted by Colu

    • Green jeans? Sounds pretty 80s. But a giraffe does need two pairs of jeans, so I could see it being trendy.

      Posted by Hazel

    • more like olive than straight up green haha

      Posted by Colu

  • hi why arent we frens yet

    Posted by goronmario

    • wait, you mean we aren't supposed to wait for a dramatic, but heartfelt, encounter to be friends? oh thank goodness, that makes things so much easier and less time consuming!

      Posted by Colu

  • are you a giraffe irl

    Posted by Hazel

  • Hey! Things are good, I’m going out with some friends to a bluegrass concert tomorrow night but that’s anoit it. I finished Ashley Bell and it was good but the way he wrapped up the mystery was a bit disappointing.

    Posted by Winnie

    • Oh, that sounds like fun! I've never been to a bluegrass concert (but then, I haven't really been to many concerts at all haha). That's too bad about the disappointing wrap up though
