The advantage of a fat stomach is you can close drawers with it, push the lawnmower & warm your hands up under the overhang when it's cold.

Please don't follow me around with that expression - I'll have nightmares.

Although, the Swiss German word for all the stuff neddy is able to do actually IS schtupsen. ROFL.

I'm trying to deposit the term with someone else - otherwise it's going to cost me some of my own precious sleep.

Sorry. Does google put us between Norway and Finnland maybe?

You'll find the "high-German" version: stupsen.

We don't want a room. It's CathHarmony's choice of words that gives us all nightmares.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My OH and I began an animated conversation about the V8.

"It's so powerful!" I said.

Yep. He was talking about cars, and I was talking about the new Dyson vacuum.

I had to use the "ignore thread" function for the first time ever.
This "Mohrenkopf-thread" gives me a craving every time I read the title and it is constantly updated

I went out of a house covered with plastic sheeting + scaffolding today, hoping to see a bit of sun... and arrived at the bank which was also covered in plastic sheeting + scaffolding .

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Ah, Blueangel, but do you have the opportunity to go for a short run at 5 a.m., come home to a freshly prepared fruit breakfast, have a secretary who keeps you focussed on the necessary paperwork during the morning only, then get to retire for a long snooze all afternoon, and spend your evenings either socializing or performing?
