Now why did you groan at 22 yards?
Because I have an iPad and chubby fingers. I meant to groan him/her and accidentally hit the groan button. Also, I'm inept.

Hi there,

Just a quick intro - I've been in Zurich since (very) late 2007. I'm from London, but have never really worked or lived since university. I've hopped around a bit but I'm now here to stay.All the best.

Glad to know you are still alive- even if Switzerland is boring

But I should still groan him.

People like Yanks more. Even I got a couple of messages of goodwill (little heavy on the smileys but my other forum is a full of crusty old machinists, can't use them there! )

Yeah, with yanks it's like petting a dog with a limp. Chatting to a yank counts as a charitable contribution write-off on your tax return.

Not picking, but your profile pic needs updating too - it's still the original no?

Yes, she didn't take after her name at all...
I remember meeting the first time and you said "my profile pic is from a movie"
And I went "economisto!"
I think you were dead impressed no?
