tales from ye olde booke of randome

   Discussion: tales from ye olde booke of randome
emilie is CRANKY · 15 years, 10 months ago

i've decided to create this forum so's i can, every once in a while (i.e. when my scanner decides to work), whack a scan of one of the pages of the usa & canada random book up here. some will be funny, some will be lame, and some will just be ...interesting. hopefully this exercise will:
a) enable those who wrote in the book to wistfully reminisce about the good times that were had by all;
b) enable those who did not write in the book to ponder on how their lives may have greatly improved if they had indeed written in the aforementioned volume;
c) make me the most popular person in the whole entire world ever. um.

okay, so the first scan is of a game of word consequences that was played by myself, ChrisChin, Lisa (the old-skool one) and Gordondon. for those of you not familiar with the game, each person has to write down on a piece of paper the following:
- a boy's name
(everyone folds their response over so that the next person can't see it, and then passes his/her paper on)
- a girl's name
(fold it down, pass it on)
- where they met
(fold it down, pass it on)
- what he said to her
(fold it down, pass it on)
- what she said to him
(fold it down, pass it on)
- the consequence, i.e. what happened in the end
(fold it down, pass it on)
then everyone unfolds the paper they have in their hand, and reads the 'story' out. you'll get the idea.

meep! beware, dialup users! teh scan is big. GIF, 444k

awww, no fair. the scan is too small for my lame old eyes to read.

wow, really?
Are you sure you're viewing it at 100%? Cuz it's easily readable for me at 1600x1200 res.

maybe it's just my chicken scratch that you can't read.

Nah, she's successfully read mine. Something weird is going on with her browser.
emilie is CRANKY Back · 15 years, 10 months ago
hm. weird. it's super-huge on my pooter. :P
goovie is married! Back · 15 years, 10 months ago
it works on my home pc.
Jºnªthªn Back · 15 years, 10 months ago
what's this about your super huge pooter? ;)
Mamalissa! Back · 15 years, 9 months ago
I've played something similar, except each person writes 2 lines of poetry, and folds the paper so that only the 2nd line is showing. So, there's some continuity between what people write, but not total cohesion.

Murray ate my chips? The bastard!
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 15 years, 10 months ago
He eats everyone's chips. That's the real reason Fruvous is on Hiatus. Dave, Mike, and Jian won't play with him till he gets each of them a bag of chips. I hope he learned his lesson and keeps his hands of Sean's, Alan's. Bob doesn't eat chips.

so. at the arrogant worms with moxy shows on the 12th, dave did a new song called 'raccoon'. (it was OMG GRATE. :D) after the last show, i managed to swipe this off the stage - one of the worms' copies of the chord sequence, written out in hand by dave. eee!

even bigger GIF than the last time, 526k, or something. meep!
