Hello thar

Well as the title says, just a quick post to say hello.

I've only just stumbled upon this site even though I've been in and around Zurich since 1989 when I came here for my "gap year". Yes indeed.
So I thought I would register and contribute to the board with my inane ramblings and less than meaningful insights. I shall also be happy to add a serious point here and there so beware.

Among my interests I would list food cooked by other people, separating the household rubbish into 8 categories and (one of my past favourites) asking elderly ladies on trams if the window-seat next to them is free.
Some pet peeves might include those hogging in the overtaking lane doing 100 while the lanes to their rights are free of traffic, "Metzgete" and "Fleischkäse" and of course those not adhereing to the rule which says "You can't do sh*t on Sundays".

One of my notable recent achievments was coercing my then girlfriend into letting us have a pet cat with promises of marriage.

That's about all for now, more will be revealed in future posts.

Re: Hello thar

Two cats no less, and all the baggage that goes with them. The wife thinks they're cute too

This place can be hard to leave, we came here 10 years ago for 6 months

Welcome to our wee world, hope you like it.
