Wolli, how have you been? Long time no see!!!

Glad you're coming, I look forward to seeing you - but I warn you, if you and Mr. H start talking for hours about Switzerland vs Germany auf Deutsch (in German), I will leave you both right there and get one more (or many more) absinthe instead!

Just kidding, see you soon!

Hi there,

I just wanted to apologise for not showing up and not inform about this. I understand there are limited places and for that I'm deeply sorry. It won't happen again

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / Episode 5

Sounds great to me!

Please just remember after 10pm to be super quiet on the balcony as I live in a VERY quiet neighbourhood.

I will have Modern Family and make either a curry, chile con carne, a stew or a risotto. I have not decided yet

Oh yes and I have a bottle of Absinth and perhaps even a bottle of Rum.
Looking forwards!

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / Episode 5

I will be bringing my speciality - warm dog's diarrhea, served on a bed of nail clippings, fart flambéd with a pinch of navel fluff as garnish.

Don't worry, there'll be plenty for everyone.

Can't set a limit of total guests. There are just two places left right now. Will close the RSVP when we reach the 20.

I will bring a few bottles of Absinth and something to eat.

Thanks, thanks, thanks!

I will let you know ASAP so in case we can't make it, we don't take someone else's spot. But I appreciate the thought

Whatever, it was not CH "VS" Germany but CH & D And he speaks a very nice and elegant German anyway the same German almost as the mother of a schoolfriend and a German aunt "Ehrenhalber" from Stettin did (not really but close) ... .... and of course similar to the accent of the East Prussian --- Sudetenland student who lived in our apartment for his studies at Zurich university when I was newcomer on this planet

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / Episode 5

Zwissmiss and prof T.: schedule sorted, I AM COMING!!!!!



As far as food, I will think of something cool to bring, and I will definitely bring a couple of bottles of good wine. Dolcetto? Lambrusco? I loaded up on wine when I went down south last time.

Mr. H is still a "maybe" because his work calendar is always a b****, but I will most definitely be there. Thanks for holding the spot(s), and very much looking forward to it!
