    is the masrshmallow spread as good as it looks confirm deny

    deny and people who make rice krispy treats out of that judas spread should die in fires of molten marshmallow. It does not have enough rigidity to keep the treats uniform. It is out of shape, inferior, goopy, shite.

    Yes. I had to add an E because the President's English does not reflect my disdain for "marshmallow" creme enough.

    I loved it a lot as a kid. I'm not sure whether I'd find it overly sweet now.

  • VariableVariable Mouth Congress Stroke Me Lady FameRegistered User regular
    the only bad thing it might be is overly sweet, it certainly is a tasty thing if you like marshmallow

    Well I'm in a productive cycle right now and I can't allow anything to disrupt that so shortly after the game launches and the D&D guild is created I'll probably take another break.

    The introductions my teachers wanted me to prep has gone from 50 minutes to 15 to 10.

    So now I get to trim 40 minutes of stuff.

    So you're teaching English right.

    How do the students talk to you if you don't know a lot of Japanese.

    Foreigners teach in Japanese schools pretty much exclusively as ALTs (Assistant Language Teachers) I will never teach solo, I will always team teach with at least one JTE (Japanese Teacher of English). I am not really here to make lesson plans to make sure the students pass the exit exams for English. I am mostly here to make the kids excited and interested in English, to expose them to another culture, and to give a living example of natural English. A big part of my job is actually talking to the JTEs in English to make their English better so they can teach better. But, pretty much any like, grammar point or difficult bit is going to be explained in Japanese to the students by the JTE.

    That's what I figured but I was interested in the specificities.

    Does your JTE prevent the students from kanchoing you.

    Keeping the class in order is the JTEs job, pretty much all discipline is. Which is good and bad, as I don't have to do it, but I have to bite my tongue if the JTE strikes a student (it is still okay in Japan to do so). The most I can do is like, point out bullying and stuff to the JTE, but, what is to be done about it is up to the JTE.

    In Jr. High I don't have to worry too much. For my elementary schools I understand sometimes the teacher just sits back and lets the kids go crazy. Then again I believe I am teaching 1st and 2nd graders so at that point its mostly just so they can see and hear a foreigner (as they use me as a human jungle gym).

    Oh man that is adorable.

    Sorry, I ran the English department at one middle school down to having to teach classes by myself. The elementary schools I was the teacher 100% of the time at at least 75% of my schools. ALTs are suppose to do what you say. But that happens only about 50-60% of the time. Most of the time you are a human tape recorder, occasional game machine, or the the actual teacher while the JTE isn't even in the room because they do stuff like that all the time.

    Hehe yeah at this point I am just talking theory. I will have my first classes tomorrow (I thought my first classes were going to be monday and just opening ceremony tomorrow but...what do I know! Good thing my self intro for the classes only has to be 10 minutes and not 50!)

    And by team teaching I largely meant "when the JTE says jump you say how high"

    please describe yourself as a lady's man

    Nah, I am going to try to blow their mind with how multicultural my area was (going to show them pictures of armenian food and mexican food and american food and thai food and all the other stuff that is thrown together in one area in the states).

    Besides... I have enough teenage girls poking their head into the office to steal a glance at the foreigner without giving them ideas. And it will only be a matter of time before boys start coming up and asking me how big my wang is.

    This is late but show them a normal US sized steak. It blows there mind every time. Also turkey. They can't comprehend eating turkey.

    Food also makes a great elementary school lesson. Simple sentence(Do you like x?) and some vocab. Then play games.

    I wish we had those nutella jars. and that I ate nutella. Because I need tumblers and those were some decent ones.

    I feel like there might be alternate solutions to your tumbler supply problems.

    Thinkin' of taking the free bus out to IKEA tomorrow. I need me some bowls.

    bowls and shot glasses and tumblers?

    maybe I need some more shot glasses. I only have six.

    This is for an arcade game in Japan called Border Break. It communicates online with other arcade machines throughout Japan. Its a 10v10 mech game, all players are humans. You win by putting enough damage on the enemy base that it blows up. You capture nodes on the map that you can spawn at Battlefield style. There are 4 main mech roles assault (high speed general fighter), heavy gunner (big guns, artillery), support (healing, scout drones) and snipers (you know what snipers do). I just don't know what will be the best asset to my team. Like, at the end of the day only killing bases wins matches, and assaults are great at that. However its much easier to attack the enemy base and keep yours safe if you control all the spawns on the map so..its like...what to do!
