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...

Have pity. He's most likely exhausted from trick and treating last night.

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.

I saw a student dressed up as a cardinal on a train, on the Halloween morning. He was so authentic, except his granny's black purse, that was a bit inauthentic.

Some people did not realize it was Halloween - they were really wigged out, staring at him. I was just waiting for him to start to give them blessings.

My cell was out of battery, unfortunately. FWP - not being able to take a photo of a fake cardinal.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My baby, oh so terribly young, just-out-of-nappies teenage son has asked me if he could meet his girlfriend down town on Saturday afternoon for an hour or so.

My problem is that I have already thrown out last weekend's large broadsheet newspaper which I need to have on Saturday to go with my long trench coat & spy hat.

I'm dying for some ice-cream. Why am I always so strict when shopping?

Just spent 2 hours walking round the huge Tesco Extra store in my home town lost, and wishing I was in Migros with a fraction of the choice.

Because that's our reason, ambition and wishful thinking. I congratulate you on that.

Now, go get your ice-cream, life is short.
