Re: I smiled because...

because I just found a website called horseandcountry.tv (which is actually also a channel tv on Sky) and once I've registered, I saw I could watch some nice videos about, well the name tells you what it's about...




And I've got a new chat person in a foreign country

That's quite cool

add : got a second, from the same country

but what's weird is she already knows somebody in Geneva

Re: I smiled because...

Cause I just missed my best friend on the fb chat, saying she desperately needed to talk to me.
So when I got back to her the conversation went something like this:

She: "So I went home with a guy last night"
Me: "Yeeessss...?"
She: "And just now he just poked me!"
Me: "Bwahahahaha"
She: "I have no idea what to do"
Me: "Bwahahahaha"
She: "This has never happened to me before!"
Me: "Bwahahahaha"
She: "What should I do? Should I poke him back?"

OMG, how was life before Facebook?

Re: I smiled because...

I had a BIG smile on all this week - as I discovered that my new skis gave me back my legs (after I nearly gave up last year)- WOW.

I laughed out loud because...

...(courtesy of one of "poke"'s meanings) this exchange had me in stitches

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because a little old lady in the train station today had bright lime-green boots - apparently a new purchase as she kept peering down at them every few steps in evident satisfaction. So I smiled, pointed and said "schöni Stiefeli!" and she just grinned like a kid and held one foot up to show me. Made my day and I like to think it brightened hers as well.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because I have managed to do something gloriously reckless and crazy, so stupid that crying over it now will make me sound even more stupid! So I can only smile.

If things go for the worse, I might have to leave the company or even the country, but if they go for the best Im going to be in Heaven!

But lets hope nothing happens in either direction and I can go back to my simple life.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because I took the bandage off my toe, sat down to a dinner of pork steak and white gravy, followed with a warming glass of Ardbeg, and am now chillin' on the bed with my lovely wife knitting at my side, a slightly alarming glint in her e
