Oh nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Suppose I'd need to buy a new one. Or arrange a super-seekrit mission to sneak into his flat as he's sleeping with a crew dressed in black who can quietly remove the fan for me!
1. It's not exactly "seekrit" (is that how it's spelt these days in the UK...? Standards <tuts & shakes head>) if you post it on EF

2. He'll have locked the door.

Oops. That was my American slipping through

But um, now that he knows, he'll certainly leave the door open, right?!

Is there smelly brown stuff flying off from it per chance?

Once again, I'm reminded of what a unique place EF really is.

I have been looking about/posting on a board for Americans in the UK a bit more than usual recently, and it has me ready to tear my hair out.

Fluffeh is the name of the day. Then again, the majority of posters do seem to be in their early to mid 20s, American and moving to the UK to be with their shiny new British husbands.

There are a couple of exceptions, one of whom posts some very useful info about immigration, immigration law and things which may be impacting it in the future. However, when this person posts something, they use acronyms, terms and phraseology which only those in the know would understand without looking them up. I mentioned, gently, that perhaps a quick 1 - 2 sentence explanation of what was at stake and spelling out of acronyms the first time used wouldn't go amiss. This was after someone else posted that she had no idea, please oh please tell me what it means kind sir. It was gently explained to the pleading one what a "motion of regret" in the House of Lords was. I was promptly told, quite snarkily, that the ignore button was there and to use it.

Now we're harsh here on newbies. But that was...pretty nasty in forum-terms. And I'm not even a newbie there.
It's like that on the Buenos Aires forums too. Lots o' 20 yr olds basically having a frat party or joining their spouses. If anyone thinks EFers are mean, they should NOT go over to those forums. Never mind the fact that it's conspiracy theory heaven. I'm all for a good conspiracy theory, but they are plain crazy! lol. [/quote]

...... there's something about this place that is very much a life.
It's not as virtual as it seems, at least not after a while.

Well, I have been on that one and it is nowhere close to be a competition in ANY way to EF. Not even close, not even existing. It would be comparing gold with plastic....

I don't think Spain have much to offer in term of good forums for expats. They are plenty but mostly dead. I came to the conclusion that here we spend so much more time outside meeting people and enjoying social life that people don't sit much in front of their computer. They have the talk, the chats, share and arguments in real.

And the weather is nice all year long... Did I mentioned that we have still up to 24-25 degrees outiside with great, bright warm sun?

Re: I have to admit.... you're the best EF!

Maybe I should spice up the place a little bit and ask where I can find brown sugar, If I can survive on 100 000 euro per year and if the spanish are racist...
