  1. Hello and welcome to the third round of our tree-decorating game on Westeros! We have played this for two years now, and last year especially we had a lot of contributions - I hope this can continue this year too. The aim of the game is to decorate our very own Christmas / New Year's / Hanuka's / whatever holiday you are observing tree with a lot of imaginative ornaments, presents and whatever else you want to add. Here is how we play: 1. This is the template for our tree. 2. The first person to play downloads the template from the imgur link I posted unter 1. Every next person downloads the picture the player before them posted. 3. Open the picture in Paint, Photoshop or any other picture editing program. Draw decorations on it: You can add colour, an ornament, background, presents ... whatever you like and whatever you think suits our tree. 4. Save the new picture (in the jpg-format) and upload it to imgur.com. Post a link into this thread. 5. The next person repeats the process adding decorations to your picture etc. You can play as many times as you want. Some reasonable rules about picture standards: a) Do not change the size of the picture. b ) Do not add explicitly sexual or violent material. I want this game to stay completely safe for children and work and common decency and stuff. c) Try not to cover the whole tree with decorations in the first few steps, some space must be left for the next players too. č) Do not cover/erase other people's contributions. d) Pasting parts of other pictures/photos into this picture is allowed. e) Using imagination is welcome. If you are still unsure about what we are doing or you are just looking for inspiration, you can see how we did in 2016 and 2017. Have a lot of fun with the game. I am looking forward to any and all contributions. Happy pre-holiday weeks, all Forum Games natives!

    Third Time's the Charm - Tree Decorating!

    I agree. We need more decorations and people are slacking No idea, I don't think I know that expression. Sure, if you want to. I mean, that is, if my family and I actually get to it ...
  3. Thanks, RB. At least tomorrow I don't have the early lesson, so I can sleep in. I only work in the afternoon.
  4. Stupid cold. Runny nose and scratchy throat and that nonsense. Please make it stop.

    Yay, presents! Brought to you by the one and only Dedek Mraz!
  6. This post would be much different if the emoticon inside the spoiler was a leery one. The power of non-verbal signs!

    Dating - I love the way you swipe

    I used to have a phone with solar cell on the back. It was really good, it lasted for like 6 years and probably still works. (I didn't use the solar charging that often, but it certainly worked, only it charged much slower than with a cord.) /thread derail
  8. I like Jaime, I like reading his chapters. Obviously I don't approve of pushing children off towers. Good luck with that!
  9. Huh? Have I ever disliked them? This is news to me.

    Third Time's the Charm - Tree Decorating!

    Save the picture to your computer. Open it in any program that can edit pictures. (Paint is easiest to use and many computers with Windows have it installed.) Add your doodles. Upload it back to the Internet, like you do in pictionary. Post the link here.
  11. I got that. It was just so suspicious. I thought my phone was displaying something (sinister) wrong. That is good to hear.
  12. Help, somebody hacked Sidious' account!
  13. So I certainly haven't been listening to the Hello, Nice to Meet You song for a few days now and have had it stuck in my head on repeat. No sir.

    The Good Place S3 - heaven is a place on Earth (spoilers)

    I mostly believe the explanation that the globalisation after the 16th century contributed to nobody being able to get to the Good Place because you just do so much more harm using imported products that exploit labour force and harm the environment ... but then on the other side, Chidi's tormenting himself about almond milk was also said to be a problem not because of the almond milk and its environmental impact, but because it was annoying to people closest to him. So ... does the impact to the environment and people on the other end of the world even count, or does only your impact on people with whom you actually interact count? But then in this case, Mindy St Clare and Tahani who organised charities would have gotten basically nothing, as they did not personally know all the people they donated to. Anyway, there is also the option that nothing changed around 1497, but that people getting into the Good Place were always that scarce, like one or two in a millenium or so. The last person went there in 1497, the one before around 870, AD, the one before in like 50 AD, the one before maybe in 500 BC ... then it would be normal that the next one would get in maybe in 2300.

    The Good Place S3 - heaven is a place on Earth (spoilers)

    I am really really interested in who the person who died in 1497 and went to the Good Place was. Was it an actual historical person or a fictional character? That was the impression I got too. And ... am I underthinking if I just assume people generally became worse after 1497, not that the points system changed?

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend S4 - We Want to Be Here [spoilers]

    In season one, Heather disliked drama. I think she said so on the party bus. Her liking DRAAAAAMAAAA only started in season three. The jokes about the end of the series were indeed funny. I actually prefer season 2 and 3 theme songs.

    Here is Valencia's letter to Joseph.

    "Creatively, it made sense to us, because we wanted it to happen." Applies here. Ooooooooh true! Father Bro went into priesthood, and Josh wanted to become a priest after Rebecca! Good catch. Also, he is apparently the only not creepy priest Valencia knows I love how much you seem to care about this show, even if you say you actually don't care about it.

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend S4 - We Want to Be Here [spoilers]

    To me it seemed that Heather cared about Estrella a lot, no you cannot really connect with her, but still. I think she would be upset. I thought the Valencia part was really out of nowhere. Shocking! Also the fact that George was at that high school and Josh did not remember him, but that was easier to understand and take as a joke.

    There is a big difference between compulsive honesty like putting your mugshot on your dating profile and hiding the fact from your friend that their pet died. Maybe I am taking this Estrella business too seriously, but I think it was very shitty from Rebecca. It also really negated the message of the episode. We did, right at the beginning. But there could have been more, of course. Valencia and Father Bro. Also, yes, finally got to meet Susie Reynolds! She's a state senator now!
  24. So sleepy ... Thank you! Yes. Very practical. Not particularly exciting as far as opening presents and being surprised goes.
