I dropped my first mug of coffee this morning, immediately in front of where the coffee machine lives, at 05:15.

I'm not bothered at potentially waking the neighbours up, but mopping a floor before I've had either a coffee or my morning cigar really isn't on!
Robot vacuum not working?

It lives perilously close to the coffee machine. I've nearly recovered enough to start taking it apart and cleaning it.

I feel that websites that ask me to turn off my adblocker to access content are holding me to ransom.

Last year I didn't have sufficient treats so I had to improvise (but something tells me kids are not happy with apples and Blevita lol)....so this year I was reeealy prepaired. Nothing, nobody till eight. Eventually, I had a group of 4 kids....and they got a bowl full of sweets, you should have seen their faces! I can bet it was the best catch during their evening.

Probably nothing compared to their parents' faces as they were trying to peel them off the ceiling at bedtime...

I know..... Hopefully they didn't eat everything in one go. Kids can be responsible, right?

Ups, now they seem to have a first world problem.

My neighbour has a very regular job in a catholic canton. She was home today which made me feel it's Saturday all day. That's fine but what will I miss to do tomorrow?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I was at the doctor's office for some routine but extensive/lengthy tests, and was bored out of my mind. I didn't think to check EF until after 2 hours at least had passed, in case there was some juicy, early "Friday thread" that could keep me entertained.

Then I found this gem. I wish I had found it earlier.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Today i saw Chewbacca walking around Paradeplatz, taking pictures with the other tourists.
My iphone broke on the weekend, so I couldn't take pictures & post on Facebook.

As this event is now not on Facebook, I am not even sure that it happened.
