Re: I smiled because...

Smile is not the word I would use...

I put my hands on John Barrowman's Dvd of his concert in Glasgow.


let's start singing and dancing....

Re: I smiled because...

... almost every Thursday evening I see this same scenario at this oh so very posh place called http://www.rodolpheavantclub.ch/ here in Neuchâtel.
Even Canadian_Dude knew that place ... no wonder!!

I come into town in my trainers to go to my Pilates class and pass by that club when I arrive and when I leave town.

There's always this same scenario there... plenty of fancy handsomely dressed folks around ...
almost always, several lovely girls in high heels standing around outside, smoking and talking on their mobile phones and looking bored to bits.

I smile walking by and am thinking to myself, for all the money in the world I wouldn't want to switch with you girls and they probably think the same about me.

And smile you should — you're the one with a life!

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because I realised that, despite having endured yet another miserable day of cross-cultural conflict, bovine stupidity, stubborn inflexibility and pointless point scoring, I'm healthy, I have money in my pocket, the sun is shining, and Switzerland's quite a nice place to live even if some of its inhabitants are a pain in the arse.

Prost!

Re: I smiled because...

I called a dear old friend with whom I had lost touch and she greeted me with open arms.
She smiled too because I finally had an asnwer to a question we had discussed 10 years ago.

Re: I smiled because...

Because today is my 2 years anniversary in Switzerland.
...and yesterday I was going through some stuff and found the flight ticket that brought me here 2 years ago... Made me think about all the changes and how much different it turned out to be, and of course, a little smile too.
