grand final

watched a bit of it; they are pretty good at catching and kicking, those footballers. I spent more time attending to the more fruitful pursuits of cooking kangaroo, playing with sailor and playing kubb, an obscure swedish game involving lumps of wood being hurled at other lumps of wood. Rachael and I were undefeated champions- go team us!

Earlier in the day Kate and I went on the increasingly depressing search for a house; we went to a couple of open for inspections and saw the hordes of desperate house-hunters wandering around skanky and expensive houses. I visited two houses where the bathroom cabinets were on the floor because the walls were too flimsy to support them and a house that they could surely only offer for short term lease because it is not likely to remain standing for more than a month. staying put is looking more and more appealing. We ran into Serena later in the day and were told tales of people offering a year's rent in advance; she could only offer 3 months, and all sorts of other shady outbidding and shmoozing. Desperate times, it seems.

Your brooches, Herr General, are very nice (schön). Marieke nicknamed you General Simon. I wonder why?...anyways, I wanted to ask you whether you c/would lend me your white leather jacket some time soon for cinematic purposes... ???!? That would be gross.

Thank you: Horst-Sybille.

Ps. gross in german. not in english. pretty oppositional meaning that one...

how could anyone want that piece of elton-johnish-couture for cinematic purposes? it must be miss bibi, who else would know how to write my name? i think the general stems from simon's impressive physique. or his dark zirkusdirektorjacket. jawoll.

hello response what? watn für ne antwort? i don't get it. i won't be mean to your jacket again, sir rattle. will put pics of flat online as soon as i have made an architectural sketch and fed it to my very noisy computer. thanks for being glad and i do hope the search for your house goeth well. instead of offering a year's rent for nothing to some thug, maybe you could - just like in the olden days, the days of glass beads and fire water - trade your, say, jacket for a house. it IS leather after all.

yes, thanks for making that clear. I might even have to wear it as my second skin to protect the first one from this insane heat.

I will get in touch with you shortly to arrange for a safe pickup of this outstanding fashion item.
