Enough already with all the I'm bored style threads!

GC forums are turning into a MTV style forum.

Enough of "who's you fav movie star and why", "who is you favorite band?", "Paper or Plastic?", "Coke or Pepsi?"

Is this just a school is out summer vacation thing?

Natalie Portman, because she's hot and smart.

I don't have a favourite band.

Paper. Save the environment.

Pepsi.

How is English Diet Coke different from American Diet Coke? Isn't it the same formula? [Confused]

Believe it or not, G-English diet coke kicks ass over US-produced. I drank diet coke in England like it was water-it didn't have the same aftertaste as here. Tasted more like regular coke. They use aspartame, too, but also a vegetable-based sweetener or something.

They use cane sugar in Coke in just about every country except here. We keep our sugar prices artificially high.

Bond is awsome. Good looking girls, and better looking electric fiddles. They look like the Yamaha Silent instruments, but they sound like the Zetas... I love my Zeta pickup... And my synthony... But that's not here nor there.

Don't have a favorite star, favorite band changes every three seconds (but Hillary Hahn is still the dreamest muscian ever, dispite how young she looks), don't care if it's paper of plastic (ussally get plastic) and nilla coke was best -- but I'm off of Caffine (only lemonade and orange juice as of late).

Movie star? Er... So many to choose from but Michael Caine is high up there

Band? Um... Queen, definitely Queen or maybe The Darkness, or Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, or maybe Jet, of course there is Fleetwood Mac, damn, I don't know... Queen.

Paper or plastic? Well.. Paper for money, plastic for my iBook

Coke or Pepsi? Have ethical issues with both so would have to spoil things by saying Irn Bru.

My pal drinks gallons of diet coke, and apparently there are two types that come in only slightly different packaging. Diet coke is the good one and coke light is the bad one. At least this is true in Edinburgh.

I really like the girl who's the ballistics expert in CSI Miami, but I don't know if that count as movie star?

Boo Radleys

Paper, plastic just smears it around a bit [Eek!]

I don't often drink Coke or Pepsi, so I don't have a preference.

We have Coke light here and it tastes awful, will try some diet coke next time I'm home

Mary-Kate Olsen - her movies are crap but if she's in them, who cares [Wink] Would have been Natalie Portman but angryjungman took her for the same reasons I would

KMFDM (sorry [blush] )

Plastic

And Vanilla Coke - but OpenCola wins the fizzy caffeinated beverage competition every time.

Rusell Crowe, because he's hot and can actually act

Right now, Diary of Dreams (good Industrial/Goth band), but ask me in an hour and it'll be different

Plastic is all the stores in my area have any more. [ohwell] I kinda miss paper bags.

Whatever's on sale. [Razz]

Katie Holmes, randomly plucked from a list of cute actresses.

I'm going through a Sabbath phase at the moment, but no doubt it will pass.

Paper.

Either as long as I can distill it to get at the water and caffeine and throw the rest away.
