I can't believe it's already 6 fucking years ago!


What Sonja said!
I remember applying for my job at the end of 2013: in the job interview I told my boss I'll have to take a week off during my first month of working for them because the Madrid trip was already booked. Normally a total no-go, but I didn't depend on that job and by boss is very cool. :laugh:

And I remember the oyster you gave me, Paul! ;D Fun times O0

We should do something once this Corona shituation will be over. I know London was planned, but it doesn't look like it could happen. I sure miss Brokie gatherings!

The way I see it, we'll likely have to wait til next year to plan another gathering  :'(

Wow, great portmanteau! I'd never heard that one before. And here I learn it from a non-native-English speaker!  :o :D

Why thank you. It occurred to me a couple of days ago, right here on this thread ;D

Yes, the London gathering has been postponed, the play Saturday In The Park with George is not happening now until  some time in 2021.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

My friend was going to surprise me on my birthday with tickets to SITPWG. It's the thought that counts.

Friend Meryl is famous! She's working for a documentary company coming out with a film about Quakers!

That was great, thanks for posting it! Perfect musical accompaniment, too.

I've always wanted to write about how animals adapt to cities full of humans. I've seen a deer galloping down a residential city street on a Sunday afternoon. And when I lived in Duluth, I once looked out the window and saw a bear lumbering around in the yard.

And I've heard that urban sprawl actually increases the deer population, because people with big yards lay out tempting buffets for them.
