Hello John,

It has been a long time since I have made my way around these parts. I am not doing very well. Today I folded at least one hundred pieces of paper. It is raining.

John Smith 18/03/23(Fri)15:33 No. 46459

Hello John,

Thank you for your concern, I'm doing well. I hope you are feeling fine also.
The weather is nice. It just snowed a few days ago, but it's warm enough to walk outside without freezing. Spring will be coming soon.
What's your favorite season?

Dear John

Let us write a story together.
I am pretty confident, that we can create something great together.

I shall start:
John shut down his computer and stared at the now black screen in front of him for what seemed ages.

It was his sister's, and a friend long passed. John was always quiet, so much so it led others to a distant curiosity, a smothering, vacant aspiration to understand; a disruptive stillness, and a fear of the calm. Distance was routine, but it wasn't people John gave a shit about. It was his sister. The only one who cared to talk, and a friend in spite of silence.
When the fever took her, John felt only more of the same. He hadn't seen her in years, and he never spoke over the phone. It wasn't principle, it was mindless, it was familiar. Now his sister was gone, and he didn't care. Through the haze of this vacancy grew a bitter seed, and a loneliness that stuck, "I'm a fucking monster."

He'd kept the horse for so long because it made him sad, and it still did. Softly, John smiled.

John Smith 18/03/22(Thu)21:37 No. 46457

Putting the horse in front of him, opposite the table, he stared at its tiny beady eyes and the more he kept staring the sadness change into pure rage. After a minute or so his mind felt like exploding and he grabbed the horse and ripped its eyes out and started crying.

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.

John Smith 18/03/19(Mon)01:00 No. 46455

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.
