I'm leaning towards the Bean_believer point of view... She does make a convincing case. I wonder if she's actually some super clever guy - I imagine (s)he looks like Matlock.
This week I am eagerly anticipating the first god shots from my La Spaziale machine....

Until you re-directed it back to you. Interesting again how you chose to avoid the strip-down of your previous denial :wink:

Oh zapty! He's got a cheque in the mail to you as well, doesn't he? :roll:

No he (she) does not!! I do not accept any gifts from strange men (or is he, you have got me confused now), from you on the other hand..

Oh
my
god....

now the BaldBean-DayDream-Girl even thought up another name for me... are you sure it's Marcy and not Marcel, Marc or Mario ? ;)

I will spend the next week reading all your posts trying to find anything I can use against you... and if I can't I'll just have to make things up :)

But back on topic.... I was doing my usual saturday walk and passed by a secondhand shop. Bought 2 french presses there (a big Bodum and a smaller one with chrome lid) for 1,50 euro.

Actually, Doris, it's all of them :shock: Sometimes, I, myself, and me get lonely and Marcel, Marc and Mario emerge... and sometimes, I can't make Maria, Marian, Marcella and Martin (they're really loud party animals) go away when me, myself and I want to be by ourselves.

You see, this is how women can multi-task :P
