Re: The First World Problem Thread

Girl next to me at the lakeside Badi is using spray-on sun block which is airbourne and smearing my Prada shades. What an inconsiderate slinky honey she is.

The bathing ladder that enables us to easily return to our garden after swimming in the Rhine has got to be very slippery.
I had to scrub the steps today

Re: The First World Problem Thread

After sitting in the Thai Airlines spa in Bangkok for my free foot massage (for business and first class customers) I headed to the lounge for some snacks to tide me over during my long, 5 hour layover. Seven hours later during my flight back to ZH, I found myself sitting on the floor of the airplane bathroom with the worst case of food poisoning. On a positive note, it was the fastest 5 pound weight loss I have had in awhile.

I order so much stuff from Amazon.de that I didn't realise I am missing an order from almost 3 months ago.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Lol, rub it in, rub it in. I just got back from ze Balt, former DDR. It was amazing and smelled almost as nice as the ocean. Not quite but nice. Water smell and forest smell are addictive, I miss that. I want more Klopsen, Quarkküche, Kartoffelnsalat and Platfisch.

Indeed, Zürich still reaches of urine following the Street Parade.
Smelled quite good before around the water though.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The pool heater thermostat has developed a leak. The quick fix was to install a blanking bolt - meaning the pool can't be heated.

For the first time I was there not for business, could actually see the place, and was pleasantly surprised.

Art galleries, plenty of museums and Cuban food in Miami, art deco in Miami Beach, fruit smoothies, mojitos, cigars, Buddhist friends, Hemingway, roosters and cats in KW.

Permanent flip flops, switching between linen clothes and swimsuit the whole time, not a mountain, not even a tiny hill in sight = paradise (to me, of course).

Re: The First World Problem Thread

But, the American mountain ranges are great, somehow they seem to have more distinct character, Rockies, Sierras, Smokies, so lovely. The Alps are...well, just majestic Alps. Big rocks.

Anyways, my today's 1st world nag is, the croissant this morning was baked yesterday. And I couldn't find any chia seeds in Coop nor Manor this evening. What's goin' on?!

I got stuck in traffic due to the police blocking Constitution Avenue so that the presidential helicopters could land at the White House.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I tell so many "Dad jokes" as a teacher. The thing is, though, is I'm not a dad.

Apparently I'm "worse" than my supervising teacher.

It's ok. I do, too. Love bad jokes.

People crack up when they see somebody else cracking up, anyways.

Wait...this is not a 1st world problem, oder? It's not any problem.
