If you believe either story, I have excellent real estate to sell you.

No Hecma. I don't believe either story. I'm just saying what is mentioned on the forum about Kelly. But the question is, Who does she really love ?

Some American happened to sit next to me on last flight. I admire people who are able to have a seemingly effortless small talk but he must have felt rather frustrated due to sitting next to a Finn. We might get naked with strangers in sauna but God forbid that we should actually talk with them.

The apostles' fast ended today here so I went to buy some cheese. It felt a bit weird and unnecessary. It seems that I'm slowly turning into a vegan.

Over here, we still had 29 degrees at the 8pm weather update. :o I'm meeeeeeeeelting!

Today we are to expect thunderstorms. Which, unless they happen in the evening, will make the humidity unbearable. That's how I got heatstroke last year.

London hit 37 yesterday. The Wimbledon organisers are on red alert.

There hasn't been much heat around here. It's supposed to start tomorrow so we shall see. Usually I've been angered over heat but for last two summer I've been rather enjoying it. Maybe it doesn't get too hot in Helsinki as it is by the sea.

My legs still hurt from my fall the other day, though not as much as before. Thank God, the medicine is starting to work, and I can walk normally. Also, I started a new part-time job, and there is a lot to learn, but the other workers are fairly friendly, and everything takes time. Thanks be to God.  :)

total waste of good pão de queijo

As a fisherman, I must object to that slur.  ;) :laugh:


You are a man ? I thought you are a woman ?

Fisherman applies to both sexes, as does chairman, tradesman, etc.

Thank you for the clarification :) Another mistake to learn from for my English.

Proper version would be fisherperson, chairperson, tradesperson etc.

No, it is not. Substituting -person for -man is a very recent innovation as a sop to feminists and political correctoids. It is a debasement of English, which is the primary language in which I was educated.
