  1. You have mail :) I don't blame you about not wanting to publish it.

  2. Yeah...


    There's the "email this person" or whatever it was link on my profile, at the "contact info". That's the way to reach me for starters. I don't like writing it out, this way I have some control over who gets it. I'm pretty paranoid about random people knowing it, or more to the point, people knowing it without me knowing they know. Weird, I know. *laughs*

  3. Well it's a shame. I couldn't find your email in your profile by the way. Did you mean fpr people to email you through your profile? I.e. by PM? Or am I just being blind? :)

  4. Thank you, Andrea.

    I'm sorry to leave too. In the end I didn't feel I had any real option, though.

    Maybe now things will be less, shall I say volatile around here. *dry smile*

    I'll miss your comments, that's for sure!


  5. Sorry to hear you're leaving. The place will have less sparkle without you!

    Hi Frankie,


    sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, yesterday turned out pretty crazy for me in the end. *laughs*


    It has nothing to do with my friends here at the forum, friends like you. I will miss you all, for sure. And I do hope we'll stay in touch.

    ii, why are you leaving the forum?? This came as a shock. I hope it's not something that's happened on here? :(

    Good morning, Mac! And welcome back.

    Glad you enjoyed it, it was indeed meant to be a tongue-in-cheek reminder that there's a new book coming up for a discussion. Unfortunately it now seems not all are seeing it that way at all. So even more so, thank you for your message.


    I am fine, thank you. I hope you've caused plenty of trouble of late and are now here to catch up on gossip and drama. We do try our best, you see!

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Good morning, ii. Just wanted to say 'ayup', as I have not graced the site for some time now. I enjoyed your post on the book discussion to be held in a fortnight. It made me chuckle (but, to be quite fair, I am often amused by your writings, it has to be said).


    I hope this finds you in the rudest of health and the best of moods. Enjoy your weekend.

  10. Thank you - he's been I'll for a while, but this still wasn't expected.

  11. I'm so sorry to hear about Glen's dad. *big hugs*

  12. Chimera

    *cracks up* Honestly, how many books with that exact same title have you read by now?? Ah well, good for you if it's made your day! Though I got super excited myself last week when I found out there are lots of conferences and 'open' classes on cross-cultural topics happening near where I live, so... *cracks up*


    And yes, baby steps are a good way to proceed.



  13. ii

    Hahahaa... Well, yeah, you have a point there. *cracks up* ... Sounds good, though. And yes, permanent job is a scary thought.


    In the ii-world, that is exciting. Just like the fact that I was able to pick up a copy of An introduction to Game Theory by M. Osborne today on my way to work. It's not part of the Big Plan, but it's a step in that direction. It's in the Big Plan, Reality Version. *laughs* But mostly it's just about the fun of talking about these things. If a job should come out of it, all the better. And they do say you should start with baby steps, so the Finnish league is a natural stepping stone for the NHL. (and then the world. *laughs*)


    Must check out Le Petit Nicolas, I remember loving those books.



  14. Chimera

    Yeah, and look how well that turned out! *cracks up* Just kidding! I'm... well I'm working, seeing friends, watching the latest movies (have you seen Le Petit Nicolas? I know, I know it's for kids... but it's also one of our cultural monuments... and great fun!), resurecting my blog, procrastinating my job search (a real, long term job just seems too scary *pouts*)... Just generally enjoying having everything right next door for a change.


    oooh that does sound exciting, in ii land ;) Was it part of any grand scheme to land your dream job, or just for the fun of talking hockey?



  15. Aww, that's wonderful! It's good to get back to routines, isn't it?

    You're looking for work? What kind?


    I'm still doing that, wrapping up the last bits of school work, believe it or not. I don't know if you heard, but my thesis supervisor passed away a while back all of a sudden. He was also a good friend, so that was pretty devastating. But, I'm getting things done... BF's fine, never better. Same old wonderful BF. He was asking about you the other day, actually. Perfect Morning-After Voice suggested I should contact his team about a job. He just wants me to cook for him. *laughs* What else... I think DD has a new girlfriend. Like, serious girlfriend. But nothing too amazing happening here, really.
