Did any of you ever get a good beer or liquor buzz on at the pool at the hotel after the sessions? I used to with some witness friends of mine. Fun times.
What was your favorite convention beverage?
as a kid, I looked forward to assemblies just to have some vanilla pudding and apple danishes...
Alfred...I'm with you on that one. I was all over those like white on rice (aka...Sarah Palin on Glen Rice)
The fruit bag was russian roulette...would it be fresh or were the grapes and bananas going south - pooling juices down in the corner?
Favorite drink....the dinky little cups of OJ...had to have 3 of those measly rations.
Yep, we had Carnation chocolate ice cream malts.
Ha! I see what you did there....
Shasta lemon-lime. The Dollar Tree sells them now, in tall cans!
Muff-n-Egg before they did away w/ food service.
McDonald's for breakfast every morning. lol
When I was younger, my assembly hall (Natick, MA) had ice cream w/ chocolate fudge, strawberry, and pineapple toppings. Weee! lol
I would like to give the Speakers a Sodium petothol truth sirum "kool-aid"...... "Yes we DID say Armagedon was coming in 1925, 1975,......yes we do not really know what Jehovahs will is, how the hell could we...."
Me, I would need a bottle of Vodka with crushed Valium in it, to sit thru that crap.
I don't remember anything memorable about the beverages at assemblies so they must not have been very impressive.
I was thinking that an endless supply of Jack and Coke might get me through a day at JW assembly Witness 007....but maybe not.
The baptismal pool water....mmmmmm heavenly spirit water.
Burritos ? Don't recall that here on the East Coast, must've been west coast only. . . ?
You don't remember those delicious beeners? Thats what my dad called them. I had to have no less than two of them. A half frozen chocolate puddin and a lemon lime soda to wash it all down. Always the high lite of the program. Lunch. By the second half of the program I would be all gassed up and waiting for an applause or a song to let it out. Man, those farts sure stunk. What the hell did they put in those things? peaceAll paulnotsaul
