Well officially I have two, but I was working overtime on Sunday, (& I'm working every Saturday at the moment, which is why I have a day off on Monday) and that's the only time I had for my reports. When things get really busy I don't get days off at all (though I do get paid for some of the overtime). Still, it keeps me out of mischief []

I have returned and am pleased to report back that the Panama Canal is still in working order. It is quite a big ditch. []

At least it hasn't been hit by an earthquake or Tsuanmi or Nuclear power incident yet!

Okay, people, that's enough ! I've reading parts of old UPs and I feel nostalgic, now. We actually need conversation and silliness in here. I MISS IT [] []

So anyway, Theney has arrived in Paris yesterday, after some trouble in the RER because of a stupid person who thought it was smart to kill themselves on the track. Anyway, we ate crêpes for lunch and now all is good []

I hope everyone is having a lovely friday and will have a lovely week-end ! []

That's happened to me twice! Once in Belgium & once in Moscow (although the one in Moscow may have been an accident). (I don't mean I tried to kill myself, I mean I got held up by someone else who did, just in case anyone was wondering)

Only twice ? [] It happens all the time in here. I think there is one person a day who kills themselves on French tracks (subway, RER or actual train).

I don't take the subway very often, so I've never been in this situation directly, but most of my friends have.

Oh, and it would be weird if you'd tried to kill yourself like that and didn't succeed. []

I'm at work, reading old UPs and listening to Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. My work doesn't... work, but life is good so far. []

The only time I have been to Paris was in December 1977. We had meant just to go straight through by train, but we had to spend the day waiting for the next train, because of a train strike. So I got to see the Tour Eiffel and Notre Dame ... and the Arc de Triomphe - if I spelt that right ... We could not find the subway, so we crossed the roundabout. On foot.

Speaking of Paris... I just watched a great old movie called Paris Blues. Excellent performances by Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier, Joanne Woodward, and Diahann Carroll. Some good cameo trumpet playing by Louis Armstrong too!

Just that every new post from "Dramatic Discussions" and south was signed [] Snöwdog - granted, some are old, but still. []

And no, I haven't seen that film. []

Ah... yes... for a moment, I 'owned' the board. []
My thread-diving did bring Arorë Silvertongue back for a visit!

It seems actually to have been quite busy the past few days! Perhaps Theney's spirit is still here in some way.

Okay. Very bad family news yesterday. Ugh. I feel like I'm in a lame movie. Or nightmare. Or whatever.

Thanks guys []

Don't worry, I'm more or less fine and definitely will be. It's just very weird and quite harsh.
Elanor > I may accept your offer, since you don't know my family [] Thanks.
But the time for mourning is over ! [] I took my driving license this morning, and I hope for the best ! I'll let you know when I get the results, in a couple of days. []

Here, the weather is just perfect []

You don't get results the same day? I'm guessing you mean the driving exam.

Here, the weather is autumn: Strong gusts of wind combined with precipitation. [] Good thing I was mostly working indoors at our warehouse.

Yes, I meant the driving exam. I didn't know how to say it. ANGLICHE FAYL. []

And no, we don't get the results on the same day, thanks to some people a few years ago who got angry and bashed the guy after he told them they didn't get it. []
