    As part of a fresh start for our little micro-community (we really needed to open the windows in the old, musty one ;) ), we get an all new thread! And of course, to start us off completely fresh, you all get a cup of best Starbucks (TM) coffee.

    pause
    What's that? I'm missing something out? Do you really want one?
    sigh
    Ok then, you get a brand new poll, in time honoured Starbucks tradition. Take it away!

    1. What do you think of the title of this thread?

    2. What aims do you have for the rest of this year?

    3. Where do you see yourself a year from now?

    4. Name one thing that you'd think would make the world a better place.

    5. This isn't really a quiz question, but find an amusing joke or picture to post.

    6. Describe one place you've been this year, and what you thought of it.

    7. Name three members from Starbucks who are no longer with us, for whatever reasons.

    8. Which of those members do you most wish to see return?

    9. Pick one Starbuckian and describe them in three words.

    10. And of course, we must have at least one Star Wars related question to finish this poll off with.
    AOTC: Will it be good or bad? Will Lucas bring us a film worthy to stand alongside ANH or ESB?

    1. What do you think of the title of this thread?

    Fine for now, but how will it age? I'm reminded of a can of grated Parmesan we discovered in my mother's cabinet that was "freshness dated" 8 years prior.

    2. What aims do you have for the rest of this year?

    To transform my body into a place that feels good to live in, so that I can run and dance and clean house without pain.

    3. Where do you see yourself a year from now?

    Finally feeling knowledgeable about the project I've been working on for the last 9 months; being much more organized at home; being kinder to people in general.

    4. Name one thing that you'd think would make the world a better place.

    If we'd all be willing to believe the other person's point of view is just as valuable as our own.

    5. This isn't really a quiz question, but find an amusing joke or picture to post.

    Maybe later.

    6. Describe one place you've been this year, and what you thought of it.

    I walked around inside the caldera of an active volcano, otherwise known as Yellowstone National Park. It was primal.

    7. Name three members from Starbucks who are no longer with us, for whatever reasons.

    me, Hunter of Winds, thxDARTH

    8. Which of those members do you most wish to see return?

    Hunter

    9. Pick one Starbuckian and describe them in three words.

    2. What aims do you have for the rest of this year?

    I don't care, I've passed my half-term exams, nothing else matters yet! ;)

    3. Where do you see yourself a year from now?

    I'll be living in a student house with three mates, probably single again looking at how my current relationship is going...

    4. Name one thing that you'd think would make the world a better place.

    This thread. But we've already got it.

    5. This isn't really a quiz question, but find an amusing joke or picture to post.

    How am I to answer that? ;)

    9. Pick one Starbuckian and describe them in three words.

    Commander Antilles - "He's A Brit". That's enough for me to respect him.

    1. What do you think of the title of this thread?

    Could be better, could be worse. The only prblem is that when this thread lasts more thana year, it will be outdated.

    2. What aims do you have for the rest of this year?

    Pull up my post count, do well in college.

    3. Where do you see yourself a year from now?

    Sitting in front of a computer, I guess.

    4. Name one thing that you'd think would make the world a better place.

    The ability to stay up all night without eventually crashing.

    5. This isn't really a quiz question, but find an amusing joke or picture to post.

    6. Describe one place you've been this year, and what you thought of it.

    New Haven, Ct., the city of my birth. It's really nice, and the Yale campus is beautiful as ever.

    7. Name three members from Starbucks who are no longer with us, for whatever reasons.

    Wow, thanks, CA, highlight my newbness why don't you. Umm, I can only think of Hunter of Winds for sure. Was Jedi Callie a Starbucker?

    I hope you didn't mean deceased.

    8. Which of those members do you most wish to see return?

    Hunter of Winds was cool.

    9. Pick one Starbuckian and describe them in three words.

    10. And of course, we must have at least one Star Wars related question to finish this poll off with.

    Could go either way.

    I don't understand? Is this an actual Starbucks sponsored thread? I hate Starbucks. Down with corporate coffee! It's called Small, Medium and Large you snotty little twerp! Don't try to correct me. Grande! ¡Su es un moron grande si usted piensa que jugaré por! Hail to Coffee flavored Coffee!

    So who's gonna start the Anti-Starbucks? Nobody? Come on, it's not over yet! Nothing is over! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? I say we take back what's ours! Come on! Who's with me? Let's GOOOOooooooo!!

    Well, I'm certainly not going to actually do it. I mean... I don't want to get in trouble or anything.

    Okay, let's have a look around. New place, new furniture. Hell, it's even got that new SMELL that places have. Or is that just fresh paint?

    Pity about the landlord killing the lease on the old place. *sigh* We never even got the chance to say goodbye before the wrecking ball came in. Bloody developers??

    G'day to anyone who've managed to find us on the new block. A special welcome to the new people who haven't tried the coffee in here before.

    Oh! Same staff!! Hey waiter!! My usual gallon of Jet Fuel to wake me up thanks!!

    Now - to the all-important poll (since I've missed a few)??..

    What do you think of the title of this thread?
    Yeah, not bad. 'Bout par for the course I guess?? But whadda we do NEXT year??

    What aims do you have for the rest of this year?
    How long have you got?
    Seriously, my main aim is to get an extension to our house under way AND finished before the end of the year. It's big, increasing our house by about a third. My wife wants to get a builder to just come in and do it but I don't trust any of them as far as I could throw them.

    Everyone asks me "Well what do you know about building a house?" (Which is virtually what I'll be doing) My answer: "Nothin'???yet!!!"

    My whole point is that we could save at least a third, possibly half by doing it myself which could give us the option of upgrading the car. Sure it'd take a bit longer?..(then again, the builders around here???..) but I think it's worth it. Any opinion anyone?

    BTW Tim, would you know anywhere I might pick up some building materials? Mate? Pal? Buddy?

    Where do you see yourself a year from now?
    Either enjoying our new bit of house or very flat under a pile of unsuccessful brickwork. Also been tossing around the idea of a career change - AWAY from maps - believe it or not!!!

    Name one thing that you'd think would make the world a better place.
    If everyone could learn to treat each other how THEY'D want to be treated.

    This isn't really a quiz question, but find an amusing joke or picture to post.
    Ahem?..
    A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that the teller's name is Patricia Whack. So he says,

    "Mrs. Whack, I'd like to get a loan to buy a boat and go on a long vacation."

    Patti looks at the frog in disbelief and asks how much he wants to borrow. The frog says $30,000. The teller asks his name and the frog says that his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's OK, he knows the bank manager.

    Patti explains that $30,000 is a substantial amount of money and that he will need to secure some collateral against the loan. She asks if he has anything he can use as collateral.

    The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny pink porcelain elephant, about half an inch tall. Bright pink and perfectly formed.

    Very confused, Patti explains that she'll have to consult with the manager and disappears into a back office. She finds the manager and says: "There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000. And he wants to use this as collateral."

    She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what the heck is this?"

    The bank manager looks back at her and says:






    ----wait for it----






    "It's a knick knack, Patti Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a
    Rolling Stone"

    :D :D :D :D :D

    Describe one place you've been this year, and what you thought of it.
    Let's see?..hmmmm?.wife?.three kids?..mortgage?.where've I been? Absolutely bloody nowhere!!!

    Name three members from Starbucks who are no longer with us, for whatever reasons.
    Sasha Sawyer. Our illustrious founder. Currently wandering cyberspace looking for a home. I've tried enticing her back a couple of times but no luck.

    Jedi Eowyn. Starbucks equivalent of Deep Thought. Every comment was intriguing, thought provoking???.and usually WAAAAYYY over my head!!! :D

    1. What do you think of the title of this thread?

    Always thought it nice and interesting perspective.

    2. What aims do you have for the rest of this year?

    The typical response that I give everybody: Study harder and get better results (especially for geography and Chinese) in school.

    3. Where do you see yourself a year from now?

    (Very hopefully) on Singapore's International Mathematical Olympiad team, but I don't think that's likely for next year. Maybe 2 years later.

    4. Name one thing that you'd think would make the world a better place.

    If only we slowed down for a while instead of rushing on and on and on at the pace of a bullet train without appreciating life.

    5. This isn't really a quiz question, but find an amusing joke or picture to post.

    Another day, perhaps. It's late for me now.

    6. Describe one place you've been this year, and what you thought of it.

    Pulau Ubin, an island off the coast of Singapore. Relatively undeveloped as compared to the rest of Singapore, but a beautiful place to reflect on the achievements and progress of the world.

    7. Name three members from Starbucks who are no longer with us, for whatever reasons.

    Hunter of Winds, Sasha Sawyer, Jedi Callie

    8. Which of those members do you most wish to see return?

    A tie between Hunter and Sasha. I really can't decide between them.

    9. Pick one Starbuckian and describe them in three words.

    Hunter of Winds: Earned my respect.

    10. And of course, we must have at least one Star Wars related question to finish this poll off with.
    AOTC: Will it be good or bad? Will Lucas bring us a film worthy to stand alongside ANH or ESB?


    While I'm not putting my hopes on an ANH or ESB level yet, I think that it will be good, and will show us what we want to see.

    Hey Vert. Give it a rest, okay? For once? Take *your* drama elsewhere. I've got enough drama in my own life, I'd rather not see it occur in a place of escape, and see one of my friends get hurt or upset in the process.

    And to those of you wishing that THXDARTH and Hunter would return...well you must all have either faulty or selective memories. Both were VERY misleading to several members of Starbucks, all of whom are friends of mine. I'd reconsider wishing them back here. Strongly reconsider.

    Just popping in to say hello. :)

    I'm sure most of you don't remember me, but, I used to frequent this OT Starbucks thread a long, long, long, long, time ago. :) Wormie posted about what happened at the ezboard Starbucks, so I thought I'd come here to help celebrate the opening of the new Starbucks thread.

    great poll, CA, I'll fill it out later.

    Yeah, it doesn't exactly make your day when your friends start jumping down your throat over some idea you had to improve a forum.

    But whatever. If you want the old thread back, ask Kadue to reopen it.

    Oh, cry me a river, CA. And why do you want Kadue to reopen the thread? So he'll get in trouble for it? If you suggest it be reopened, go do it yourself. You're the one who closed it in the first place.

    I don't care whose genius idea it was to move us in here, all y'all still could have told us first.

    I don't have time for these games anymore.

    Well, is it surprising I'd rather have Kadue handle this from now on, given comments like yours, Taramidala?

    I closed those threads, in agreement with the rest of the staff, to try and improve the CT forum, and thought that Starbucks could have a fresh start too. And what happens? I get people I thought were friends going ballistic over it and implying I'm indulging in some sort of admin power trip from it. So is it any wonder I asked Kadue to reopen the threads if he sees fit, since I'm sick of the whole sorry business?

    In any case, I'm feeling pretty disillusioned with this place and certain members of it right now, so don't expect to see me back here.

    Tim, Trace, Kadue, Jade, JD, Thran, I wish you the best of luck in the future. It's been nice knowing you. :)
