Re: hi everyone!

Michele, you may not be the typical EFer (starving in Switzerland at 130 grand a year while writing 10 posts a day during working hours, pining for brown sugar [sorry folks, couldn't resist], bashing the Swiss, heckling newbies, etc.), but of course you are allowed to be here. The reasons you mentioned are absolutely acceptable, and you even seem to have a good command of English (apart from the Shift key, which you really should get working some day -- ok, just joking).

Welcome to The Gang.

Re: hi everyone!

Hello over there in Florida, michelle.

My cousin billy lives there; he's crazy though. If you see an old man driving about talking to his dog about Mary and Jesus, don't make eye contact.

I think I've seen him headed up I-95 between Jacksonville and Savannah. I made the mistake of letting him catch my eye and then I really really had to do my best to avoid looking at him as he apparently found eye contact to be some sort of come-on and was trying to show me his willy while driving.

Then again, maybe that's someone else's cousin Billy...


Welcome to the forum Michele, there are quite a few of us Americans lurking (or posting far too often), hopefully see you around in Switzerland sometime.

Re: hi everyone!

There are two kinds of drivers in Florida: Old people and.....their parents. *badumching*

Sorry, that corny joke makes me giggle every time.
