Re: The First World Problem Thread

Too many entertaining threads on the forum this evening, and I have run out of Haribos.

I'm regretting that I'm not taking anti-depressants.

I understand the words, but that sentence makes absolutely no sense to me.

That's probably a good thing. Pure sugar and other stuff that's probably (definitely) not so good for you... but they're terribly more-ish. These are the best (if you can't get whole back of sour cherries, that is...):





A necessary (!) marking aid...

I know what Haribo is, it is the odd inclusions of the word "too" in the original post that has me flummoxed. I've tried reading it out loud, but it sounds like glossolalia to me.

Ah. Really? Someone with your word-trickery abilities?


I have too many packets of Haribo. That's probably better. Haribo is most likely a non-count noun, come to think of it.

I am declined to agree with you, there is no trick to me.


The plural might be Haribi though.

Might we then also say that a complete deficit of them would be a Haribum?




edit: Silly me, "Haribum" is the result of prolonged consumption of Haribi.

Not sure - it sounds too cheerful - like emporium.


Then again... moratorium. Hmm. I'm probably going to give that more thought than it really needs!

Am. System takes a while. Peak time!


Plus am female, therefore adept at multi-tasking.

I can multitask too,


I have known myself to know the answer and still be wrong.
Sleep and snore simultaneously.
Think, while being unthinking.


This very moment I am lying on a sofa, wearing a foil hat, watching TV, masticating, trying to recover my vestigial English, while declining multiple friend requests from wealthy, intelligent, and attractive women on Facebook.








ok.... one of the above is not strictly true.
