Welcome to /eh/

Where everything is just... eh...

I really love soda. I can't get enough it.

Do you like soft drinks?

I am rather a fan of San Pellegrino Limonata.

It's 16% lemon juice, which makes for a refreshing and enjoyable beverage. Shame about the sugar content, though.

John Smith 18/02/24(Sat)19:34 No. 46438

The whole San Pellegrino range is enjoyable, mostly for the flavors but also a bit for that feeling of "well at least it isn't the most sugary drink I could be having right now so that's almost like being healthy."

If you get your hands on chinotto, that one's worth a try. The bitter orange flavor won't be everyone's thing, but it'w worth trying for the unique taste alone.

i do happen to quite like soda, however i don't really get to drink very many anymore.

I bought a drip coffee machine today from a second hand store. I'd never used on before today. I had some coffee for a French press i used to use til i broke it and made a pot.
I hadn't used the coffee for a few moths and it tasted a little "dirty", I think I need to try a few different brands to find one I like.
I didn't want to be wasteful so I drank the lot, it was nicer than in the French press but it got me quite worked up as since I quit smoking I have cut back to only one cup of instant in the morning.
How do you have your coffee? Are there any particular types of coffee you use?
I like my coffee strong and with some milk and two teaspoons of sugar.

Whats the dead with Kcups?

John Smith 18/03/16(Fri)19:40 No. 46453

Excellent question, John. When the Keurig machines first came out, I dismissed them, assuming they'd die out quickly because it was then an obscure proprietary system to do something that was fairly easy to do otherwise. Clearly I underestimated the public's appreciation for the convenience of having a single serving's worth of coffee pre-measured in a self-contained pod.

John Smith 18/03/18(Sun)17:06 No. 46454

I always pour boiling water over my coffee grounds and let it steep for as long as I think is necessary. It makes it very strong and dark, and I don't add anything like milk or sugar. When I feel it's done I transfer to a new cup with a small sieve, the grounds mostly stay in the bottom of the old cup anyway but I like to make sure as sandy coffee is unpleasant.

I've been using espresso grounds lately. I think the dustier grind leads to more particulate making it through my sieve, giving the coffee a creamier texture despite being black. I like it.

What a catch, John. You must spend a lot of time looking at the ground.

John Smith 18/03/09(Fri)22:46 No. 46451

I do, actually. It's pretty icy so it's best to watch your step.

Hello John, I've recently been enjoying the mixed drink or cocktail, if you prefer, know as the "White Russian. I find it's creamy and smooth texture to be rather pleasing and quite the boon after a hard days work.
The beverage is mildly exotic but not at all displeasing; perfect for sharing with polite company after a rich dinner.
What beverages or mixed drinks do you enjoy at the end of each day?

Yours in curiosity,

John Smith 18/03/08(Thu)00:55 No. 46448

Greetings, John.

I used to enjoy a straight Scotch quite regularly in the evenings. At one point I conjured up a cocktail of Scotch, Amaretto, dark chocolate sauce and milk, which I found to be to my liking.

I have since greatly reduced my intake of alcoholic beverages, limiting myself to meager amounts in social settings. This has been mostly due to me choosing marijuana over alcohol as my "glass of wine in the evening", if you will, as well as recognising the not-so-jolly scenarios the consumption of alcohol often leads to. Having said that, tonight I have indulged in some Grappa Chardonnay, a bottle of which I had kept around since June of the previous year. This very unusual minor carousal of mine owes to a notoriously disappointing day, but I shall spare you the details, John, as I am sure you have your own worries to tend to.

I must say, however, I've always found the bottle of Ketel One Vodka rather pleasing to look at.

Yours truthfully,

Lately I have found myself going for walks late at night, pondering, gazing at the universe, and all I wish to have is someone to experience it with me. Yet it seems as if none of my friends are night owls. I don't like being alone this much. Any similar experiences, John?

John Smith 18/03/06(Tue)20:37 No. 46447

I find it hard to imagine contemplating the majesty of the universe with friends. I like having friends, and I like looking at the night sky while walking quiet sidewalks and trails. Where it trips me up is trying to do both at the same time. The time I spend appreciating the company of my friends is time I don't get to take in the night atmosphere, and time I spend soaking up the universe is time I'm not spending paying attention to my friends.

I sincerely hope to be proven wrong about this one day by experiencing a late night walk with friends.

What is your worst irrational fear, John?

Mine is the fear of complete isolation. Quite odd considering I'm an introvert.

Yours Truly,

Dear Johnny,

I consider myself lucky to have none, though I do have fears that are rational. I will fear things such as carcrashes and my light chest pains, though ultimately I only fear bigger than life sorts of things, maybe not actually in the scope of rationality. The concept of space for example is terrifying but beautiful to me, I don't want to die to a black hole but I do want to see it before I die as it is theorized you wouldn't just die immediately but you would see a lightshow before it finally sucked all the oxygen from earth where then I would die. Things such as a pulsing star potentially emitting a ray so strong it obliterates the earth does not scare me as that would be instant though a meteor I would probably spend inside maybe even on here away from some madness. Death itself does not scare me but the concept that I wouldn't feel like I have seen everything I should have before dying does, like I was put here to appreciate everything and squandered that.

John Smith 18/02/28(Wed)22:08 No. 46441

Dear John,

An irrational fear of mine has always been dying while my bladder is full of urine. Whenever I feel threatened or in danger, I head to the bathroom because I don't want that aforementioned scenario to happen. However, I'm afflicted with paruresis. This, ironically, makes it physically impossible for me to urinate anywhere but in the solitary comfort of my home.

Kind regards

Hi all, OP John here, cool to see that this thread is still near the top of the first page. I haven't been on in awhile, as I have been busy. But man does it sure feel nice to come back to this great board and fellowship with all of you again.

I am thirty in less than three months. Once upon a time, I spent hours on 7chan every night. Now I check it maybe twice a year. I wonder if 7chan will be here in another ten years? I wonder what all my old friends are doing now? I feel like those than also frequented here back then are all in a similar situation to me now. Different lives, obviously, but I doubt they check here much.

I am very sorry to hear that you do not particularly enjoy the field that you are in. I think you should take up some hobbies in your spare time until you find something youd like to study and work on that.

life is much too short to spend it doing something you would not like to do when you dont have to. Do you get what Im explaining here. What is the point in it if it does not bring you somekind of introspective revelation or spiritual enjoyment. Find your passion and pursue it man. The rest will follow in due time.

I truly do wish you the absolute best and hope you find happiness and wellness.

Dear John,

I like reading my old posts on here from years ago. Does anybody else do this?



John Smith 18/02/28(Wed)10:35 No. 46440

To John

I like reading the old posts here as well.

One of the reasons I love it here is because there's a chance of dredging up an old thread you forgot you participated in.
