I'm probably named after a vegetable you hate
« on: 06 Nov 2013, 21:45 »

...but I'm unoriginal and can't be bothered coming up with a better username.

Hi everyone! 18 year old ex-exchange student here, who's way too into anime and western cartoons. Also webcomics, but that's pretty self-evident huh? I am also a player of Zelda,  a part-time deli girl and a full time lesbian.

Hi!

I don't recall what a Brussels Sprout is. Welcome and mind your lug wrench.

I am not a fan of the Vegetable, but you've got nothing to worry about since you're not a Vegetable.    ;D


Here, have a Doughnut.



Geeze, you're a fast eater  ;)

I can't eat that doughnut though! It's disappearing in front of my own eyes D:

and the best way to eat brussel sprouts is the good old fashion Belgian way. Beer, bacon and LOT'S of cheese

We have something in common: a nickname (given to me by my evil older sister) for a brief growing up was "Brussel Sprout", and the just "Sprout".

You're taller than some people in my family. I think my mother topped out at 5 ft even. I'm about 6 ft, but that about average around here with all the nordic ancestry.

I got 'Brussel Sprout' as a nickname as as Brussel rhymes with with my given name.

I'll gladly let you have the BrusselSprouts name and all that it stands for.  :-D

I wonder how many food-related screen names we have. We should get someone named after a beer to go with you and LePetitFromage.

Yes, let's have Belgian culture take over the forum. We could have Gaufre (Waffle), Frites, Foie Gras (eww) the possibilities are endless

We'll just have to recruit some people

I might end up working for a Belgian firm at some point. I'd love to move to Belgium if FN would offer me a position there!

If you have the chance, I'd totally go for it! Belgium's an awesome country, especially since it's in the middle of Europe (or pretty close), so international travel is a snap. Not to mention the food, which is a definite 11/10

We'll see, chances are if FN brings me on it would be with FN Herstal here in the states. Which is still cool, but not quite as cool as getting to move overseas.

The thought of eating corn on Thanksgiving seems so foreign to me. Corn is something you eat in the summer! We buy ours from the back of a guy's pick up truck. He hauls it in all the way from the Okenagan on the other side of BC

I eat corn year round in the manner of one who is successful in business.

My mom also makes this INCREDIBLE corn casserole that I am going to be sorely missing this year... actually I think I'm going to be alone for the American Giving of Thanks holiday, so I shall most likely resort to the traditional bachelor meal of delivery Chinese food.

Agreed. Stuffing is the best part of Thanksgiving. I'm not a huge pumpkin pie fan though. Too sweet for me.

Man I can't wait for Christmas so I can have turkey again.
