Hey, Manu!
How are you?

I hope you are well again. After my second vaccination I remember sitting there and staring at the wall for hours, but I was OK with that. The wall was perfect for being stared at. LOL

40% done Olympian Affair and expecting to finish Twelve Months by January? January of 2022? I wasn't expecting that kind of speed anymore.

How about Game Ends lol? Time Outs? Walks alone?
LOL. I like Game Ends ;)
But there have not been any verbs in the titles by now.

Walks Alone.... LOL. Makes me think about Harry after destroying every Walker save one. The last one. Harry will rename him

So, I recommend checking YouTube over the next few days to see when a video featuring Jim is posted, to see if we can get any solid clues about his writing progress on Twelve Months.  We can always hope that my gut feelings about when to expect the next DF novel are too pessimistic and Jim is much closer to finishing than I am guessing he is.     
I think so too. I checked yesterday, and there were several videos about dragon con, but none with Jim yet. Once there are I will watch and listen intensely.  ;D

Until then I will nurse my pessimistic expectations because it feels much better to be told you are wrong in this case. ;)

Hey there. When I first posted, it looked like his account was deleted. That's no longer the case. So I close this thread.

Same here, but this is an air rifle. My beloved Diana 54 Air King.
@Regen: I don't think I can deliver the message that well. Lol. I can manage a stone face, but fake sympathy always ends up with me laughing.
LOL. Me too.
In this case, if it were me, I would either say nothing and make use of the chicken in some way or other. For example make them my own. My garden, my chicken. ;) I wouldn't kill them.
And in case she notices and wants her back, I could either say: these are mine, I found them in my garden. Or: You can take them back, but only on the condition that you never allow them into my garden again.
Or storm over to her, red faced and spitting to yell at her to keep her chicken where they belong, or else... But this I would have to do at once or my anger wouldn't be so convincing any more.
Or after calming down I would go over to her and put on my serious face and tell her in a rational tone, what happened, and that I hoped this was just a single incident and not on purpose. Because otherwise I would consider it a unforgivable rudeness and that would be a pity wouldn't it? After that I would put on my most malicious smile and walk away without giving her the chance to answer.

The last one would be my best solution, but I have trouble not to tremble with rage when saying something like that. But maybe being considered crazy would be to your advantage in future dealings with her. LOL

In reality I think I would take option one.

LOL: about rifles: my father actually shot at chicken and stray cats with his air pistol. Several times. It doesn't kill the cats, the bullets never stuck, but it hurts and tought them not to come back. So he tried it with chicken, too. He hit one in the butt and it died. Oops. So we had chicken for dinner. One of the neighbours told him a few days later, that he had some chicken missing and we should watch out for martens. My father thanked him gravely for the warning.

Yes!!!! And when she asks, if you knew where all her chicken have been disappearing to, what on earth happened to them? You can tell her innocently you had no idea, but you can give her a good advice: keep your remaining chicken safe on your own ground. They definitly need better protection. It's just too dangerous for them to wander around...poor things ;) so many terrible things can happen to them... But hey, how should you know...

Why does she do that? Did she do it on purpose or did she just not notice in time, that her birds got into your garden? If on purpose: That's not very nice. Does she intend to piss you off?
If she was just careless, she should apologise and give you some of her salads for destroying yours.

Honestly, I didn't like the watch. I tried to read it once, but my thoughts drifted all the time. But I do like the ones with Death, and the ones with Rincewind. I have not tried the witches yet, but they sound nice as well.
Our library doesn't have all of them, so there are lots I haven't read yet. Some I own and some belong to my husband. But I intend to purchase all the ones featuring Death.

Maen, weird!

Just dropping by. I've finished my reread of the Alex Verus books, now waiting for the last one to arrive in early December.
Now I'm kind of floating around, browsing the internet thingie, reading a few sentences of the potential next books I'm going to read, but not able to decide yet, which one it will be.
Honestly I want the next Dresden, but one can have dreams ;).
I think I will read Mort again by Terry Pratchett.

Tomorrow I have to get up early to get as many plums as possible from the tree before the wasps and hornets defeat me again. Doing it in the afternoon or evening is a bit too challenging for me. Being stung isn't fun.

I might end up buying it. It includes four stories I'm interested in. We'll see.

Well, Santa Rosa arrived today! So far, it is not so intense as other years, but it has been raining all day.
... Yay?...

Excellent about duolingo! If you have any doubt with a lesson, you can ask me  :)
Thank you. I will do that. <3
So far it is OK. Though there is no grammar. But I've always been ignoring grammar, lol. But I am sure I'll need help as soon as the sentences get more complicated than ' the cat drinks milk.'
I also try to freshen up my French.
...  ;D no pun intended!!!!
But they put me with the beginners although I passed the test. Now I have to go through all the boring stuff I already know in endless repetitions.

This week I am occupied with buying school stuff (finished for the little one), shoes (their feet are growing so fast) and maybe clothes (especially some jacket that's not too thin but not too thick also for autumn and at best waterproof. School starts in two weeks.

But now I'll go to bed. I just wanted to say hello.

Mafalda: Poor Miguelito!
Mafalda's dad: What is wrong with him
Mafalda: Since the day he imagined the sea was a soup, he can't see it without feeling sick.
Mafalda: But...There he is! In the sea!...
Mafalda: Bravo, Miguelito! You took courage!
Miguelito: No, I took alka-seltzer.
Oh, that's cute! Thank you.
We are back home, feels like summer is over. The plums are ripe. Once the rain stops, I will start collecting them.

I've started to learn Spanish with Duolingo. I think I told you once, that I wanted to learn it in school, but they only had Italian. So I meant to take lessons 'some day'. But there never was time after school. There still isn't really, but with the app on my cellphone there is no pressure because of exams, no need to vistit courses at certain times, which always is difficult for shift workers. It's only my third day, but it is fun.

DINA!!!!!!  ;D
@Arjan: I was more confused by the pine cones. A bit scratchy to float in.

Vegetable and pine cone baths? Did you try them?
No, I thought that might be a mistake by the author of the English text. I have never heard of those. They are not even mentioned in the German text. Maybe it means special treatments in a thermal bath, but there is none directly in the city. But in Bad Ischl, another city.
