  1. Why is there snow in that picture?
  2. What made you smile today?

    ..and she´s done it again! Greek neighbour Eva rang the door buzzer.. " John, give me a plate. " So I did. And she brought me lunch for tomorrow. Frikadelle with noodles. Local hospitality and no reason to discuss it.  It is very kind, though.
  3. Schadenfreude

    I didn´t know the word gimp, Tor! So I googled it. When can I start? (self-employed, busy most times )
  4. Schadenfreude

    How much for your daughters? ( Blues Brothers ) 🙏🏻
  5. Schadenfreude

    You don‘t want to sell your smaller child? Why not? What a scam you are trying here.
  6. Jassou, Alexnf! In the coastal village down the road, Mochlos , there‘s a restaurant where Dimitris offers chicken curry ( after being badgered by countless expats and tourists over the years.)   It is tasty but BUT not scharf.  Basically, we make our own - there is a curry house in Malia but that is miles away. I like Greek food for its fresh ingredients but I miss scharf. But you CAN get the spices, thankfully!
  7. The Vent - No Chat!

    No chat — just: your vent has made me burst out laughing! 😂
  8. Why are you unhappy today?

    What‘s happening in Hong Kong is awful- it wouldn‘t surprise me if Beijing sends in the troops. They have some there already, as I understand it. The place is imploding... jeez
  9. The Vent - No Chat!

    Again this stupid racist crap:
  10. Brexit: The fallout

    With stupid people like her´, wonder the Tories look set..maybe. 
  11. What are you cooking today?

    Stir fried chicken breast with veggies for me ( spicey! ) and pork chops ( non-spicey ) for dogs tomorrow. The cats had to make do with roast chicken today. I‘ve run out of caviar. And they don´t want to wait till tomorrow...they came to the office to hassle me.    
  12. Ok! The only feeling I have is maybe you love local sports stars,...maybe born and bred in your area..and you don´t relate to  " plastic fans " from elsewhere ie no local connection and you don´t feel they love your team but are just hangers-on.
  13. I can´t figure out why you have joined this forum to say that, Cels! What´s the point? If you like your favourite sport, why not share the twitters and youtubes or whatever with fellow fans?
  14. By the way, it can work the other way around. Someone wants you to go into their establishment ( ie you are a potential client/ cash cow etc ) are walking down the street and someone (eg taverna owner/employee ) says " come in...come in. ". But you don´t want to eg because they don´t really want you to go in with a dog or because it looks uncomfortable or because the toilets are famously horrible. You ignore.   Or, sigh, bloody hell...that early morning..well , about 8, in that small town in Chile and I am wandering around lost and tired and just arrived and this ancient woman ( about 55 or so I reckon ) sees me, opens her window, flashes her sagging breasts at me and says: " fucky fucky , gringo? ". I ignored .IF the establishment doesn´t want you or you them: GO ELSEWHERE and fuck ´em.   Stick to your guns.
  15. Is he asking that, fraufruit? Is it because of his " race? " OP: what race is your friend? Is he black? fraufruit: black-haired men. Plenty of guys are black-haired but not necessarily black.
