Ohmigawd!!!


WHAT an awful spectacle that has all been!

You poor little duckies!


Adelaide is damned cold (for Adelaide) the last few weeks.

(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))



It's always hard.


I hope The Hague is all your dreams (and none of your nightmares) come true.

Dasha, you and I both sort of ignore it until it's quite late. I haven't been thinking much about you leaving because it's upsetting to me. I guess I can't keep ignoring it. I always get sad, depressed, anxious a flurry of self-doubt when I make a major move. It always works out (though I still miss NM, I think I left too soon). It is good to have come back to my family. I think you'll find the same - even if they sometimes drive you crazy.



I do that "not thinking about major stuff until it is on me"...or even until AFTER it's on me, too.


I hope you guys can visit a lot? Once you are teaching, 'k, think of the holidays!!!

My traveling all depends on the cat.

I know Dasha is expecting to make some trips back here.

Sydney ... hmmmmm ... and since you're on the wrong side of the planet, you must be in the middle of winter there, correct? I'm tempted!

Whaddya mean the wrong side of the planet??? -From where I'm standing (or sitting) - that's you.

Winter is lovely here - except for the bit where it's cold. We just say it doesn't get really cold in Sydney - so don't heat our houses at all! Confused Outside, with a jacket, it's terrific.

nette persoon = that couldn't be anyone else than you!



Geslacht huisgenoten: vrouwen = hmm; but since you didn't have the best experiences with males in your Boston flat ...

Internet aanwezig: tegen meerprijs - well, you'll certainly will have left a couple of Euros for such.

but: Gratis parkeerruimte, evenals gebruik van berging voor fiets = that could save money! [But on the other hand: Tramlijn 2 op loopafstand (2 min.) ]


I could imagine that it's a flat in one of these houses

and it's 2 rooms for me, which is nice.

vrouwen is a female, right? that's good. although i've been talking to some guy, Marco, who is the owner, I think.

Without being really certain, it seems that the windows in those apartments face either east or west - which means they are probably quite sunny with either morning or afternoon sun.

Not really - but it's on one of the main roads

Oh! Well, one side you might be able to see the beach and get some afternoon sun, the other side you'd have more and more gentle sun in the morning and better sun in the winter. Maybe.

Hey. Just saw this pop up when I did a search for my name. I'm going to sleep now, but you asked me for info earlier in the What made you smile today thread, so I had answered there at some length. In two successive posts, on page 724/725. I'd been wondering whether it had been of any use at all.

Ah, OK, i'll look. I've been overwhelmed lately-- bombarded by emails with links, suggestions, and such, so i've been actively hiding and avoiding. But I'll look once my chapters (2) are written and submitted.

Laan van Meerdevoort. Funny. That's where my office is. It's a looong street though, as I found out, but still. That's a great price for that area, too.

Actually, I could drive up there, look at various places, talk to people/owners and take photos ... if it just wasn't THIS AUGUST (no time for such excursions at all).
