Sounds normal to me.

Got any bacon and cheese? Make a quiche.

My problem is that I don't have any decent crackers ... to go with my port and cheese.
My problem is, I don't know how much longer I can live on crackers as bread substitute.

I could have slept in but decided to play piano instead. And then there is joyous spring cleaning
I tried to buy window cleaning liquid last Saturday to get rid of pollen. Coop staff told me ausverkauft from more than 2m away. Spring cleaning seems to be a bit more than joyous

Just mix some cleaning vinegar with water. Works perfect and is cheap.
(I know, I was one of those window cleaners this weekend)

I just read the composition. There's some ethanol in it, but it's ~95% water. As k_and_e wrote, some homemade solution can be done.

White vinegar in water is all I used on windows in years.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Optic fibre for internet broken ... noticed after the shops had shut ... so I have to set up a combo to watch tv!! (phone as hotspot for laptop, plugged into tv). Unbelievably primitive!

Just hoping its only the cable damaged, and not the wall socket itself ...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Migros Do It + Garden closed ... so I couldn't get the rest of the supplies I wanted to cast more dice!

Some of you have seen the results of my first case, and know that I need better gear ... here are a few pics for the rest of you.
