Yes I'm alive!

7 days of no blogging! Preposterous I say...
Thank you to those of you who have expressed concern. Also thanks to all those who are still visiting!
And no, nothing has happened to me. I am doing very well. I have been, however, and still am, busy - busy - busy. Not only is my job at the tourist shop (where I've been doing some overtime) been sucking most of my energy out of me (especially since it's THE busy season right now), but I have been spending all my freetime on studying for a summer exam I am taking in 2 weeks from now. The whole matter is quite stressful. Basically, the course is mathematical (obligatory). I am useless when it comes to calculations. I had to hire a tutor. Finding a suitable tutor took a substantial amount of time, and now everything is at the last minute. So during the busiest time ever at work, I have very little time to study a subject I find practically incomprehensible...
And so.. That's my excuse! (And yeah I know, I always have an excuse...).

Glad to see you back on the air. As for the mathematics, as a retired engineer, I would have been happy to help you out. Tutoring is what I did to help get through university. Unfortunately, there is a small matter of distance.

As for your previous remark about Germans having no sense of humour, that is a bad error.

Have you ever seen a German with a beer belly on the beach in a thong bathing suit and refrained from laughing?

Glad you are ok, and good luck for your exam!

Hi Maria, good luck from me too.

I hate to bring it up, but you'll finish your exam just in time for the disengagement. Probably not the best summer in your life.

I recently watched the CNN and they said: "Next, in August: Pope Benedictus' first international tour. Then - Israel's controversial pullout from Gaza." I swear, it sounded like movie trailers.

Thanks guys. And Orly, I know what you mean with the movie trailer thing! The media has no shame sometimes.

words good.

That's about all I'm capable of right now so I can't blame you for not blogging. : ) But glad to hear you are happy and busy.
