And I admit to buying water in bottles. I don't quite get what the big deal is. What am I going to buy when I need a drink and we're about to travel back home? Coke? Juice? Or water? It's water everytime. I'm glad water is sold, otherwise I don't know what I'd drink!

I see.

Hi Lucia;
you can buy water, is no problem its cheaper than wine despite what the professor said.

And more thirst quenching besides though I find sports drinks better for that purpose since they replace electrolytes besides.

Are all the Netballers homosexuals, or am I wrong?

mojo said...

Cripes Stripe ... they are winners, and in this world there are winners & losers, & gender issues and orientations are somehow sort of lost on this.

Stripe said...

Uh .. not all of them are winners. I seem to remember the Australians losing. :|

Was that a "Yes"?

Andrei said...

Give it a break Stipe - who cares, if you do take it to DPFs GD not our FNFA which is a chill space

Hi Lucia,

Re the Budapest video-

I just thought it was an inspirational and well made advertisement for Christianity.

Sure a change from what was once there.

Not enough Cattle tick for you? :)

Obviously you guys care. A lot. :chuckle:

Change the subject

Lucia Maria said...

Andrei,

Agree about the sports drinks, I just prefer the water. I also prefer the kids getting water on long drives than them getting used to sugary drinks.

Oh, and Wellington water tastes bad! Some person on Kiwiblog thinks it's the best in NZ. It's barely drinkable straight. While as Kapiti water needs to be filtered, except for when we switch to the bore and then I'm off to the supermarket to buy heaps of water in bottles.

And I like sparkling mineral water too ... *ducks*.

Don't need that sort of trash Stipe come back when you have something worthwhile to say or not at all.

Ciaron said...

Lucia; I trust an industrious individual like yourself would simply reuse bottles ;)

muerk said...

Christchurch water is the best!

I.M Fletcher said...

*still likes Coke*

I know, I know ... my bad...

homepaddock said...

If I was organised I'd take my own water from home, but sometimes (often) I forget so when I'm thirsty I buy it.

I can't see the point of drinking sugar and flavouring.

"*still likes Coke*"

Had a learning experience with bacardi & coke in my first year at university - haven't drunk either of them since.

Ciaron said...

Hi


My name is Ciaron, and I'm a coca-cola-holic.

Andrei said...

Hi

My name is Andrei, and I'm a coca-cola-holic as well. But only the kind with sugar.

Diet Coke is disgusting and Coke Zero undrinkable

Ciaron said...

(weeps)... So, I'm not the only one?

Good on ya Andrei, I am the same. Can't stand the artificial taste. And sugar may be bad for you, but it least it's not as poisoness ;)

Lucia Maria said...

Redbaiter,

The modern dancing for Jesus thing is just a bit ... Protestant for me, I suppose. It's culturally alien.

But, you know, if you found it inspirational, that's great!

This is more the sort of thing that gets me: So a Pope and an Anglican Archbishop walk into an Abbey…

Lucia Maria said...

*SIGH*

Well, I used to be a coke-a-holic, back in my programmer days, pre-children. Nothing like a coke to keep your brain active while coding. I drastically cut down after children, and then migrated to coffee, and then went mad and bought an espresso machine and spent too much time making coffees with foamy milk on top, before I turfed it and went back to normal coffee. Now I can't drink coffee often (it's a fortnightly or so treat), and I can't drink coke at all (it does bad things to me). So, I drink water and orange juice and red wine and tea. Cutting down on the tea and the wine.

:think:

I wonder what the Bangladeshi cricket players drink ...

Have you seen this Lucia?

Bet it isn't Coke Zero Stripe

Lucia Maria said...

Andrei,

I was so hoping it wasn't liturgical dance, and yes it was! Lunatics started that after I left the Church in my teenaged years and I've never actually seen it in real life.

I even left out the comment to RB that his video slightly reminded me of liturgical dance, because that would have been rude the dancers in Hungary.

And those puppets... the whole thing is just ... *shudder*! I watched the whole clip a few years ago, so it's familiar to me. It's bad, really bad!

Lucia Maria said...

missed out the word "...rude [to] the dancers in Hungary..."

Andrei said...

What was RB's video?

Lucia Maria said...

Ciaron,

I only reuse the water bottles when I'm organised, which isn't that often. Most of the time, making sure I have 4-pack from the supermarket in the boot is the best I can do.

Actually, speaking of disorganisation, this week has been quite a bit of that. I've increased my 9yo's after school activities, which now means I'm still trying to get my head around my gaps (those times that I can go to the supermarket).

ZenTiger said...

Oops, did I get here late?

Lucia Maria said...

Andrei,

Here it is.

Zen,

You are only as late as you want to be.

Ciaron said...

We all like a bit of cut oj here as well, and with the old shake, rattle & roll every decent size container gets the Get Thru treatment.
