Stupid bloody snowman
Resent to Don. It was the one I played this time
I feel like a snowman. It snowed a foot here today and it's still snowin'. And like a snowball I keep gettin' bigger, and bigger, and...ooh! better turn off that site. Darn porn bots:O
Yeti, the Abomadable
LOL! It looks like I agree with you here, Lung. Come on Yeti!! You're making us Yanks look bad! (I do enough of that without any help )
A foot of snow?!!
I feel for you guys. Here in Sydney it's been 30 degrees celcius for a month. On sunday i went down to Cronulla beach - a magnificent white sand beach upon clear blue waters, had seafood on the water underneath blue skies and a gentle sea breeze off the Pacific Ocean, put on my perve sunnies, sunk a couple of coldies and felt sad for all you suckers
At least you guys get a white christmas. Hehehe
As a reminder to everyone - especially the new players - here's the turn order for Monkey 2:
Yeti - French
Don - Americans
Lung - Australians
Paul - Dutch
Zaphod - Russians
TheBirdMan - English
We hope for a white X-mas.
But the weather do, what it likes. The first night in this winter with temperatures below 0 degree Celsius in Denmark was the day before yesterday. 2 months later than usual!
It's freezing! Yay!
Meanwhile, i'm going to bed with no blankets, and no sheets. I'm even leaving the window open! Curse our good climate! Curse it, i tell you!!
WooHoo! made it up to 20F today! Heat wave.
Tommorrow a high of 10. *sigh* I still have ice on my car from a month ago. Think I'll spray a few hydrocarbons to give the ozone a little push >
Anyone know how cold it gets in the UK? My sis wants me to visit in January, (She married a scot. The guy wore a kilt to the wedding lmao. Weren't kilts invented by an english clothes designer in the 1800's? heh) He's cool but he talks funny Maybe I'll go to Florida instead. Yeah that sounds nice.
Just thought I'd throw in some between turn babble.
Australia has never suffered a hurricane. Cyclone, yes, but hurricane? Never
As for the UK, Yeti, it's not so much cold as dreary and miserable. Wet and cold, with warm beer and whingeing poms. Any Aussie worth his salt will tell you this, regardless of whether they've ever been there or not
Turn arrived from Don this morning but i didn't have time to play it. I'll play it within 24 hours.
The hurricanes will come in due time to the smallest continent on Earth I think.
Meanwhile we just check our snowshovels.
Turn 217 to Paul. I will be mostly away for the next few days, but may come home occassionally.
Merry christmas to you all and your families
Turn 217 to Zaphod
turn to the birdman
i'll be at home with my family for christmas. sadly i don't have an internet access there. but if the next turn will take as long as the recent one, nobody will notice ";-)"
merry christmas to all
Turn 218 to Yeti.
It might be the destiny of the english people in this game.
Those d... undercover babarians (the ai-turned germans) will not accept a peacetreaty. Next time I know if they want to go to war against me!
It would be fun - destroyed by an AI in a PBEM
Turn to Don.
And now his worshipfulness, Yeti:
"I would like to thank the pious folk of France who officially embraced the new National Religon: Yetism.
Let us all put one foot out and say "Yippie for Yetism!"
"The next few years I would like to put more assets to exploring who France's Neighbor's are. For some reason, (a glitch in the holy abbicus?), much of the world is still unknown to us."
"I would like to reach out to the mystrious Americans, they seem like a peaceful lot. Perhaps you would allow a penatant diplomat to one of your cities?"
"Also, I make a humble request to the other great leaders of the world: if at all possible, please send the most holy French empire maps of known areas if possible. I understand, for whatever reason, this may not be possible. Therefore, please do not be alarmed if thou seeith a old, meek, and humble sailing ship or battleship, as the Rightous Navy of Franch is trying
to figure out where in God's green earth they are. I thank you in advance."
Yeti the Humble
p.s. Donations to the church are welcome! Please contact his holiness if you would like a speaker of the faith to come to your town
Oh, and Merry Christmas to all
p.s. we got more snow lol. that's 3 feet in 10 days lol
Turn 218 to Zaphod
"No one ever won a war by dying for his country. They won wars by makin' the other poor dumb bastard die for his country!"

Turn to Don
(Thanks for sending to yahoo, Birdman, the cnn email takes forever to come up. The only reason I have it is cuz Apolyton won't let me have a yahoo email. It's a pretty archaic rule since now there are billions of html emails nowadays, but whatever )
The profound and holy French nation has built the first chain of Bless You Drugstores in Paris. It is conveniently located in the Holy Smoke toy factory.
We interviewed laborer and choir boy Pierre Ale'tete:
"Yeah, Bless You is o.k., I can get my NoDoz without having to go across town now. But it kinda sucks cuz if I call in sick now, they tell me to come to work anyway and go to the clinic at work. Of course I'm not really sick and slackin' off so they tell my boss and then it's back to work stamping lower receivers for machine guns. Funny we make the K-5 and fuzzy stuffed bunnies in the same assembly line."
Amazingly, fuzzy bunny production has increased 25% since the construction. Also pushing production, are cutbacks in the armed forces, as many faithful phalanx units are being replaced by more modern infantry, with automatic rifles and artillery. "We are looking at a more lean, but more lethal, defense force, enough to at least put up a fight before we get pounded to oblivion," an anonymos defense advisor said, "hopefully this peace shall continue so we may never have to use these terrible weapons."
In his yearly speech to the nation, his worshipfulness, Yeti, addressed the nation:
" I would like to thank the nations of the world for the relative peace, and in particular our rightous neighbors the Russians, and the Americans. They are truely great neighbors, and while we may not agree on everthing, I am always confident we can discuss issues in a most enlightened, and civilized manner."
Yeti the Talker
I haven't received the turn. Here's my email just in case:
If you haven't sent it, then...um....ignore this message
just wanted to say, that i'll leave again in about 16 hours to celebrate new year's eve with a couple of friends, and will be back approx. january 2nd.
happy new year to all
Turn 219 to Zaphod
turn to the birdman
Monkey 2 to Yeti - email@example.com Roger and out.
66 this is 05, fire for effect 220 to Don, over
In France's great quest for maps, Reverend Yeti would like to thank the Great Dutch Leader Paul for the rightous map exchange. For one who has a wonderous heavenly Globsat, however, it seems not to have revealed the great mystrious black abyss to France's North. In this age of new technical gadgetry, however, I am confident France will solve this mystery that has plagued the world for so long!
Yeti has also been blessed with a better view from his throne! Some merchants came to his town today from a far away land offering computer hardware bargains and magic shows at the Great Coloseum. Yeti upgraded his system with a wider field of view, (17"), and a zippy optical reflection device for a most reasonable sum! All leaders are invited to his holiness's palace to view in awe the spectacles of the wonder called DVD!
TTFN, (Ta Ta for Now!)
