I'd overlooked the raspberry suede shorts. Thank you for bringing them to my attention. Was this a subliminal request for your next birthday present?
Careful, his birthday is very soon!

"raspberry suede shorts, £1,141"

wtf, I don't think I've spent that much on shorts in my entire lifetime! Not looking like the wally they used for a model has saved me a fortune.
He is also the most depressed tourist EVER. That article is a fail on so many levels.

Re: I smiled because...

We now live in Burgundy so can afford to go out to eat now and then

Market day today so shopping then pain au chocolat with a coffee. Buy the pain at bakery €1 then go to café and order a coffee or two €1.10 each. But then again the prices reflect people’s purchasing power around here.

Re: I smiled because...

I can imagine living in Burgundy is pretty amazing.

I don't mind not eating out and buying the cheapest bread around, though, back to the roots, I grew up that way. Builds character

Greets to Burgundy!

Well...there is a way to attract them as my dad would teach you. He cooks them these lard/seeds/breadcrumbs balls they go nuts after. I think if you hang them further from your windows, it is better. They can be really sneaky overwhealming pests, them burds.

Well, you see, I only enjoy company that joins me without bribes
Those are the ones that really make me smile.

True. Same here.

Do you also tell everybody that you have a boyfriend? It is a good test. (I just watched "What if").

LOL, no I don't. I don't explain my "nos". What are you testing? Whether the guy won't be fazed by the existence of a boyfriend? (And is that a good or a bad characteristic if he doesn't? )

What's "what if"? I googled it, said it's a book?

Hmmmmm, "it's not you, it's me. I don't like you anymore". ROFL. This line might come in handy some time.

Re: I smiled because...

The parcels are piling up at the service-station I registered with in Germany as I find all the stuff easily on amazon, which I have been looking for (for up to two years ) here. And yet I'm still far away from Fr. 300.00.

Re: I smiled because...

Bouldering burns 500-900cals. I don't really care about that, I ache but it is always good pain after one hangs off a wall.

The hall was slammed, everyone was there, from preschoolers to retirees.

I think the time you hang off the wall it's the one securing you who burns the 500-900cals.
