Re: I smiled because...

Smiling again because my favorite band *Unheilig* got a Platinum-Award from Universal-Switzerland.

They were in concert in the Swiss-German part this week-end (but I missed it)

I'm happy to see that Swiss people appreciate that band

Re: I smiled because...

I forgot I sent in an article on multilingual children and language policies and legislature in Switzerland and the national publishing house just let me know they published and they are shipping me free copies.

I smiled, indeed, not because I would be one of those loopy academics trying to get as much stuff pushed on their shiny CVs, but because I enjoy writing about how things get done here for others to compare. Yo yo yo!

SuisseRomand, you have my dream job!

Re: I smiled because...

There's this guy I keep seeing walking along the road towards Winterthur. Rastafarian hat, dreadlocks, the whole tri-color co-ordination thing going on. He does the walk and body language stuff too. No doubt has his fair share of Marley on his iPod and maybe once saw someone smoking a joint.

The only thing is he's a white Caucasian male and vertically challenged, so the imagery is all plain wrong.

Smiled today because I got to cuddle the babies, and make them giggle. I wish you could bottle baby giggles.

Re: I smiled because...

I spent a precious moment listening to a loved one.
The most sweetest gifts are simple, quiet, special, usually insignificant to others and so very special to one's self.

Re: I smiled because...

I dared to question a Swiss doctor's opinion and was promptly told that I'd end up as a cripple within a couple of years if I didn't follow her advice.
