Re: I smiled because...

My lovely, ditsy nephew had a house party last night for his daughter's 14th birthday. He made a mini Glastonbury in the back garden with house tents and fairy lights so that a dozen girls could all sleep out, as requested. Then he panicked and spent all night awake in a garden chair in case anyone abducted them #proudpapa

Re: I smiled because...

I registered to get a new passport 10 hours ago.
I can go there to have it made on Friday!

What happened to 'long waiting periods' and 'summer is a bad time to do this'?
Wow, they managed to impress me.

Maybe it just irks them that there are still people who don't have a biometric passport. Oh gosh, EF-attitude is rubbing off on me.

Re: I smiled because...

I solved my FWP in spite of almost all of them refusing me internet access due to my location.
It was racism, definitely racism.

Were you trying to access a USA site? I am continually stymied in my efforts to shop online any more thanks to GDPR. They even block the usual IP masks. Do they just not want my money??

Yep. But you see, I get my kicks out of getting their stuff without giving them neither money nor my email-address. They do tend to stall a bit but where there's a will ..... And will I got in spades.

Curley, do you charge them for it, too, while you're at it?

Hey, nor me! (Not that I knew it was on.) But that wasn't cause for me to smile.

There wasn't one (check Sobeit in the FWP thread and you know who left us all out) and I don't do birthday parties. That's for people who are all surprised when they survived an other year and need to celebrate that miracle.

Sitting on the balcony listening to my neighbour's litter having puppy playtime in the garden. Too cute.
