Go Bananas! by Kid, on 2003-02-06 16:48:29

Does anyone know if banana skins ARE the slippiest natural thing on earth, or is that an oft perpetuated urban myth? And while I'm on the bendy yellow badboys, does anyone have the genetic knowledge to stop them dying out (10 years they say! No!) so generations to come can laugh at the purest joke of them all?

Save for that...enjoy your fruits and your days!

I have a friend at uni who did actually slip on a banana skin, accidentally, and he said it was really really slippy. I mean, its no 'ice' in my opinion, but it sure does glisse. I was only talking about their very slippiness yesterday in fact, so i was quite surprised to read your comment. I was threatening someone, and told them that if they didnt do whatver they were supposed to be doing, id come over to Canterbury, strategically place a banana skin outside his door, and wait til the morning. Then when he came out of his room, he'd have dog shit all over his foot.

I bought 'nanas for the first time in my shopping-for-myself life yesterday, half thinking 'I want a chocolate banana and marshmallow crÍpe', but half thinking 'I want to make the most of this monkey-related foodstuff before its too late.
I ate one yesterday and i'm going to have another tonight for dessert. Maybe in a crÍpe. Maybe just to merely enjoy itin its simplicity, as many people do with me.

I really never thought i could write so much about bananas. I wanna get out more.

Bells gone. Got lessons now. (Thank goodness for that, i hear you say).

  Tommies comment in relation to mine: 100 times shorter. 100 times more meaningful.

  Ah, but your 'dog shit' thing had me laughing so hard as to attract attention from elsewhere.

  If someone likes to be on their own turf, what could this mean? Or maybe to have ones own turf. Cant remember the exact phrasing, but its something to do with turf. Or turd.

  Surely, to have one's own turf is to possess a large wheel barrow full of large sods and peat (no, not pete!!) and to be on one's own turf would be a tendancy for attempting balance upon the afore mentioned sods. Or, maybe we just don't get it because we ain't street! Now turds...that's a different story all together...

  Tell me this is a big joke! Tell me you understand the In My Backyard implicature within having one's 'turf'.

  nO! Should I be worried? Is "your backyard" what i think it could be?

  Seriously, am I gonna get an answer? Enlighten me, or I'll manifest again!

  I'll put it straight. Things have gone wrong in the past. To be on one's own turf is to be somewhere where one is comfortable, either physically or metaphorically (I would be on my own turf arguing about metals, for example, but not so much on the percentage of metal within a specific ore).

  That's what I thought. I was just confused by the context in which it was used. I'm not a remi.

  Hey, I'm leaving tomorrow for my ventures around France. Im spending Weds - Sat with the family who I went on an exchange with at High School (Yann, for your benefit Kid). Then off to spend a few nights on the piss with a mate from uni who's on an ERASMUS year in Lyon, and then on Tuesday to Montpellier with 4 of the 7 first year groupy! So, well, I am literally just gonna go bananas for a good week and a half, so if i seem to do a disappearing act (Voice!), that's why!

Thanks for the advice, Kid. I will try to enjoy my days, and if i can, i will enjoy my fruits too. Au revoir!

  Wash! - I recommend the Peaches and Melons and a big Banana and the odd Cherry!
Re: Re: Re: Go Bananas! OK I will! by Wash! on 2003-02-18 05:36:46  |  Reply to this
  Peaches freak me out with their velvet like peel. Melons are on the contrary a personal favourite. We should all make the most of the current banana days we live in, the bigger the better, and yes, cherries are better in small portions, as are grapes and slices of kiwi, otherwise you might feel temporarily full, but when you leave the house, you realise you've only eaten some cherries, and actually realise you could do with a sandwich or a bag of crisps. Melons definately the winner, and not just because of the conotation.

So pick your favourite, folks:
b)Seedless watermelon
c)Normal yellow melon
d)Cantaloupe (those small round ones, orange in the middle)

I say Cantaloupe

  Wash! - I feel bitter lemon would add balance and for that full-up feeling, try a pineapple.

  Got to be seedless watermelon. I'd go for normal, but if you're saving me the effort I can turn it down. Its the king of the refreshing fruits, and reminds me of the Turtles that came in Kinder Eggs (What? Children don't hatch? Crappidy crap they sure do!) when we were bairns.

And I might have said Normal yellow melon, but you played it down. Do you mean a Gala melon?
