  1. kinda obvious, but are you sure theres still kero in the tank? also, when mine reaches the desired temp it cuts off by itself then cuts back on then the degrees drop. kinda loud and annoying when i watch tv, but saves me from having to get up and turn it off when it gets too hot.
  2. i sometimes prefer the cones to the cream. i might have mentioned this on here before, but theres a diner back home where the original owner invented the ice cream cone. they still use the machine to make their cones and they are oishii- regular cone size, but have the waffle cone taste. you can buy plain cones- good for dessert if youre full or not in the mood for ice cream. sometimes you can get them hot off the machine- thats the best!
  3. dims- first had it in papua then picked some up when i was in australia. does it ever go bad? i dont eat it that often, so the big jar i have is way past the expiration date (by like a year). i also keep it in the fridge, but noticed it out on the shelf at my friends' houses. hmmm. also heard theres a diff btwn nz and uk marmite, that i think the nz stuff was a bit more vegemitey. yeah, i dont really understand all the nuances of these foodstuffs.
  4. was reading salon and saw this article . strangely enough it reminded me of this thread. hmmm, interesting.
  5. i like it with butter on toast. esp good if you make it into a sandwich with scrambled eggs. like the marmite i'd had too, but i cant really tell the difference btwn it and vegemite
  6. got a j style at work. don't really mind too much. feel like its good exercise for my legs.
  7. what? you cant have sex if youre not in love?
  8. sometimes theres a scene or something funny at the end. my fav is in ferris bueller's day off when the principal has to ride the bus. a girl offers him a gummy bear thats warm and soft bc its been in her pocket all day
  9. Quote: Originally posted by SKI: I wonder what % of 87 year olds are still having sex? didn't the article say she was artificially inseminated? so they didnt even do it...
  10. hmm, not sure if this should go in the on topic or off topic... anyways, anyone headed to the nozawa onsen fire festival tomorrow (thursday)? i'll be there for the third straight year. its pretty fun, esp if you get there in time to drink plenty of the free sake
  11. i've seen both crowds and empty slopes so far this year. besides long waits at the quad at 47, lift lines havent been bad at all. but there have been lots of people on the slopes at hakuba. kinda frustrating bc i feel like i'm always slowing down to avoid people- couldnt get a supergood run. i'd rather have a long wait and a empty slope than short wait/crowded slope. solved the problem last weekend at nozawa by sticking mostly off piste. not too many people there.
  12. i've been getting too frustrated with my snowboard boots, especially with the one shrunken bootliner. so i'm looking for some new ones and i wanna get a really nice pair instead of going midrange like i've done in the past. so i searched the forum and got lots of ideas and went to the shops and tried on lots of stuff. the salomon f22s were the best fit and most comfortable. but i can't really get any info from the salomon site about the difference between the authentic and fusion lines, and i can't really communicate with the salespeople in the shops that carried salomon. they were marke
  13. theres also a bus that goes shinjuku bus terminal--nagano station. its 4000yen 1 way, 7200 round trip. takes 3hrs 40min, depending on traffic of course.
  14. just found out about iTrip - you can play your ipod thru an FM radio, so no worries if you rent a car without a tape deck. sounds pretty cool.
  15. i think its something like under 10,000people is a village, 10,000-35,000 people is a town, 35,000+ is a city.
  16. my friends the omachi aet who teaches at hakuba high school. she gets a sweet deal on a season pass. damn i'm jealous.
  17. ok, even though i said i'd be going to hakuba this weekend if it snowed, and it certainly has snowed, i changed my mind. i'm going to hit nozawa on saturday. anyone else? also i saw this on the now page... Since yesterday you can ski the whole Yamabiko area off piste on your own responsibility. Finally they opened the area under both Yamabiko lifts, go there for some fun in the trees. ... sounds good, can't wait!
  18. yeah both alps and snowbeds are good places, around 3000yen a night. alps is within walking distance of goryu, snowbeds is between 47 and happo and within walking distance of an onsen. you'll def have fun at either.
  19. no zwelgen was in iiyama. i live in toyono- just north of nagano city, so it's not that far to merge. but it's just sad for my cute little town. and i'll be the last aet there.
  20. even though you are a beginner, dont hesitate to invest in expensive, good quality gear. i am kicking myself that i went for midrange stuff last year.
  21. lots of small towns are merging in nagano. this is the last year for my town ; next year it'll be a part of nagano city.
  22. the lasagna at alice (bottom of 47) was pretty tasty for 500yen. but def not enough for lunch.
  23. from what i've heard from people around me 10-15 man sounds about right. depends on how much (if any) work is needed on your car. if you're going to be selling the car with about a year or so of shakken, you can get some of it back.
