Re: The First World Problem Thread

For the last two weeks my Delonghi coffee machine has been nagging me for a replacement water filter, and now it wants a descale too.

I'm sick of being bossed around by my appliances.

Something tells me had you replaced the water filter, descaling would not be due yet.
Guys, pheeeew, never listen yet don't want to deal with the consequences

This much, I have already figured by myself from the context, that it had nothing to do with a mission in Normandy, lol. It would be an expected “delivery day”.

Welcome to the EF soon and expansion of expats society all the same.

I don't know what you are all on but I want some. This Denner 1/2 price wine isn't so wild. half the time it's toss up on how mouldy the cork tastes when you suck it.The rest is just a sniff test which wins the race.

Well, Denner seems to have the alcohol content right at least.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I had opened a bottle of Surre Moscht from Ramseier about 10 days ago and refrigerated it. Original content suggests that 4% is imminent. However on bottle’s label they also recommend consumption of it within 4 days after opening the bottle.

Wonder how many percent jumped up ever since ...

So now I’m posting accidentally on Wednesday night instead of Friday ...

My advice is do not suck the cork; whatever Harvey Weinstein promised

Myself I find the ARGENTO MALBEC RESERVA very drinkable; but I do avoid the cork

90% of the time he is playing golf in Florida, so no problems there. The remaining 10% he is talking nonsense in DC, but at that point we can drive to Maryland and eat crab and hang out at the beach away from him

The little nugget will be Italian-German-American, so 2/3 EU and 1/3 US. Broader perspective and multilingualism, or just a very confused kid?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

After years of neglect decided to watch The Apprentice.
Am i the only one who is getting annoyed with regular repetition 'lord Sugar this, yes, lord sugar, but lord sugar, no lord sugar...' It makes my ears and eyes bleed, this submissive show of reverence and subservient, ingratiating behaviour.
The whole thing makes me annoyed and i don't like to be subjected to too much excitement right before my beddie-bye time...
