What a memory!
How could one forget? That thread ranks pretty high on my EF Greatest Hits list.

Also, I love celery. And celeriac. And (whispering) cilantro.

So, on her way to work (in our building), the local GP greeted me as usual, then asked me 'how many motorcycles do you have?'.

I had to stop a moment and think before answering.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I got two mates who are too generous with kiss-emoticons on whats-app.

How am I supposed to recognize and cherish a "real" one from anybody in the future?!

None of them. Genuine one neither uses app emoticons, nor plays the games. He simply grabs and kisses straight away.

I missed half the dialogue during the movie Atomic Blonde, because I was utterly mesmerised by how fricking amazing Charlize Thereon looked.

My other half is out tonight, so I'm going to have to postpone the GoT finale until tomorrow...

Or, I watch it, and fake it tomorrow.
