[music |Lost Season Finale music. So damn good!]

So I've been REALLY behind lately. Sorry about that guys. I'm past the 980 mark on my friendslist, so if you posted anything in the last week that I should see, give me a link here. I'm going to start catching up slowly but surely. Sorry I've been so far behind, life's been crazy!

Youtube of the day. A chimp forcing a frog to perform oral sex. *stare* No really. Soo... I didn't know that was even possible. Crazy world.

First sold in 1885 at Morrison's Old Corner Drug Store in Waco, Texas, Dr Pepper is the oldest soft drink in America. It was soon followed by Coca-Cola (1886), Pepsi-Cola (1898), IBC Root Beer (1919), 7-UP (1929), Sprite (1961), and countless other soft drinks that have long since disappeared from the shelves. In 1929, there were more than 600 lemon-lime soft drinks alone on the market!

So what's your favorite soda? For me it's European Fanta ( The American Fanta tastes like oil. Ugh!) , Coke & Cherry Coke, and Mr. Pibb.

I generally hate soda. Far too sweet for my tastes and just tastes ick to me. I had stopped drinking all of it for a year, tried to drink it and ICK.

What soda I DO still like is ginger ale, preferrably diet.

Ooh, gingerale is awesome for when you're sick. I have very clear memories of my family bringing me gingerale when I was ill from being a kid onward.

Diet Coke. Occasionally I drink Mountain Dew but it doesn't have caffiene in it here. Ditto with Irn Bru, it doesn't taste the same here :( So I only drink that when I'm on holiday in the UK

I know. Me too.

That's kinda why I had to post it. I didn't even know that was a possibility. Strangest thing I've ever seen, and super disturbing.

I'm wondering that too. Really freakin' strange, right?

And I think my favorite is from glass bottles. It just tastes better.

Oh, and favorite soda would have to be Cheerwine, but, alas, that's not sold around here. :-( It's primarily a Southern beverage.

Mountain Dew, Diet Coke, Sprite, or Root Beer, depending on my mood. Mountain Dew's what I drink the most of.

Vanilla coke...or there's an energy drink called Red Eye in australia that comes in three flavours, they're all quite good. One tastes like creaming soda, one tastes kind of berry-ish...the other one I can't describe :P. Redbull is awesome too.

Totally eww, right?

And I hate diet soda too. Got myself an ulcer my freshman year in high school by being on the rice and diet coke diet I invented. lol. I was living alone at the time, and it was bad. Now I can't even touch the stuff.

And real sugar? Man. If I'm ever in Mexico again, I'm definitely getting a coke to try.

And RC Cola!! Yay!!! Super yummy.

I also like Fanta. My friends say one can`t slake his thirst by Fanta, but I can. But I can never slake it by cola.
I don`t think I tasted American Fanta. But I`m not a gourmet, maybe I wouldn`t feel the difference.
Do you know that in Finland Fanta is sold with the name Jaffa (it`s read like "Yaffa" in Finnish). I think "Fanta" doesn`t sound Finnish, so they changed the name of the drink.

I did know that! I had some when I was in Finland. :) It's Fanta in Denmark though, or was when I was there. I bought a big bottle to bring home.

I love diet Mountain Dew and Coke Zero. I can handle diet Dr. Pepper, but it tears up my tummy if I drink too much. :P

My posts have mainly been about poop in my mom's life and that guy, Will, getting back in touch with me. Grrrr.

Hope you feel less swamped soon! *hugs*

Dr Pepper does have that capability. Do you really enjoy the taste of diet sodas? I just don't, so I'm always curious if people like it for the taste.

And oooh. *huggles* I'm working to catch up, I'll comment if I'm not all ready past your posts, love. I'm here if you want to chat.

And thank you. Life's crazy!

i don't really drink soda very often at all anymore (i have really weak teeth), but when i do it is generally diet coke. that's more like a drug habit though, the diet-coke consumption is.. when i am drinking soda for pleasure it is Reed's Extra-Ginger brew. i love ginger!

Vernor's ginger ale, A&W Root Beet if I'm in a mellow mood, or Barq's if I need a sharper bite . . .

Dave and I are wondering how anyone can comment on anything but that disturbing video? Why does soda even matter in this world anymore?

*eyes glazing over*

*hides*


...but if you must know, I'm definitely a Cherry Vanilla Coke kinda girl, too bad they don't make it anymore. & amusingly enough, Dave is all for Pepsi. We have little soda battles over which is better -- Coke vs. Pepsi.

*still scared*
