2011-05-19 [Linderel]: It's a loaded word to this day, eh?
2011-05-19 [hanhepi]: *is offended at being called a damn yankee* *spits* that having been said, i've always wondered why over there all americans are called Yankees. was it a term before the Civil War, or do we all get called that because the Union won?
2011-05-19 [Alexi Ice]: ^^ I'm down south so I have to deal with being a hillbilly and all that crap.
2011-05-19 [hanhepi]: joke: "What's the difference between a Yankee and a Damn Yankee? A Yankee comes down from up north, stays a little while then leaves. A Damn Yankee stays."
2011-05-19 [Linderel]: I honestly have no clue why. :P It might be as simple as "hey, here's a short word, let's use it to mean every American". But I guess it's slightly derogatory - similar to "ruski" and stuff. But one can also use the term to refer to the country when used in the plural: if you say "meen jenkkeihin" you're saying "I'm going to the States".
2011-05-19 [Akayume]: I wish my camera didn't run out of battery. :( I have some AWESOME resin sticker rings I made recently. :D I am quite proud of them.
2011-05-19 [hanhepi]: it's easier to say than Usaians too.
2011-05-19 [Mortified Penguin]: Aw, I have no skills.
2011-05-19 [Skydancer]: Adds to the list of rather interesting places.
2011-05-19 [hanhepi]: sure you do mort! the ability to bullshit is a valuable skill. it's just hard to trade it for a tangible item.
2011-05-19 [Mortified Penguin]: YOU'RE a tangerine!
2011-05-19 [hanhepi]: and you're a lime. :P
2011-05-19 [Linderel]: Oi. Could I request less randomness? Otherwise you might find yourself covered in orange juice, and I don't like to waste good orange juice.
2011-05-20 [Mirime]: I have tons of beads that I keep thinking I will use someday and never get around to using... mostly glass, or some fake pearls, that kind of thing. I could take pics if anyone might be interested.
2011-05-20 [Linderel]: Do. :3
2011-05-20 [9jlriexqk,ktpk]: May I join? *Looks around shyly*
2011-05-20 [Linderel]: Go right ahead! ^___^
2011-05-22 [Linderel]: There. First item up.
2011-05-23 [Akayume]: My picture is really crappy, and it's one of my first jewelry pieces. >.> Be gentle. DX
