Hi, I can't believe it was only 2 years ago I went to VFF and saw George....it somehow seems much longer ago.....I developed my passion for Venice in a heartbeat....and almost missed George!

At the time I finished my report by saying he looked "vulnerable"....truth to tell he worried me slightly......on reflection I think he was going through a bout of Adrenalin Fatigue....and just needed a siesta....and a good bone broth!

Well this afternoon, I am off again to VFF.....No report's anymore.....just fun and sun....fingers crossed.....Somethings change....and somethings stay the same.....x

What Would He Say
Clooney-love. And they said it wouldn't last

Please let's try to keep the Chit Chat thread none George related. Feel free to open a new thread.

We have already September It was so hot today but now it is raining. NICE.

Today I did a bet with my co worker. Until Christmas I'm not allowed to eat any Sweets in the office. If I fail I have to do 50 push ups in the Office in front of the whole Team. If I make it my co worker (a guy) has to do 100 push ups in front of the whole Team. Wish me luck Very Happy

I used to eat Cadbury Milk Choc with Hazelnuts
recently. Never eaten it before but I would really 
relish it. Only a small amout each day. 
I recently became quite poorly while taking BIG doses of antibiotics and couldnt face the chocolate.
Still dont fancy it ! 
Our bodies are wierd sometimes. Lol.

I ended up not going out to a movie and instead got some Redbox films and I had ordered Masterpiece Theater's Poldark so I'll binge on that tomorrow.

Right now I working through the Wikileaks film and I taped the Matrix trilogy because I've not seen all three films.

But really except for some home cleaning today, I mostly napped!  HA!  It's hot in HELL-A again so just staying out of the heat!

European shopaholics......................

Primark is opening it's first  store in US.   Would appreciate feedback from the ladies regarding selection, quality, prices, etc. 

I've heard good and less than stellar comments, based on hearsay, third hand knowledge, etc.

Thanks, PigPen  Smile

We have a big Primark in Berlin too and it is always full.

I watched a documantary about Primark a while ago. Lot of the Quality is good (not all of course) and cheap. The reason why they are so cheap is because of the mass purchase they do. They compared for exampe a jacket which cost at Zara over 150 Euros and the same Jaket was at Primark for less then 50 Euros. I was surpirsed. I thought Primark has everything cheap and bad quality but I learned different when I saw the docu.....

Thanks Nicky.  The writeup about the store's intro to the states said part of the store's attraction is the chaos in the aisles.  My kind of place  !!!! Wheee! Wheee! Wheee! Wheee! Wheee! Wheee! Wheee!

There has been a bit of an issue here in the UK about Primark - apart from the fact that it looks like a jumble sale! - and that is the sourcing and many reports of bad working conditions in the countries of origin...not helped by the massive factory fire last year in India/Bangladesh which resulted in many many deaths. More inspections of such facilities were promised..........

Nicky, 
I've been to all Primark  store once. The shop in Hanover was the first one in Germany and I went there just a month after the opening. It was totally crowded, everybody was just grabbing clothes like crazy, the music was way too loud, people started trying on clothes in the aisles because there weren't enough changing rooms ,  and it smelled a lot like in a chemical plant. I left the shop immediately and haven't returned since. Fortunately my daughter doesn't want to go there up to now and I'm definetely not pushing her...

Yes that's what I heard too PAN and carolhathaway.

In the documentary they mentioned that they have not enough changing rooms and that People who go Shopping in primark wear tight cloth in order to try on cloth in the shop without going to the changing rooms.....really weird....

Nicky,
my niece went shopping there and really bought a lot of clothes. She tried  them on at home and there were quite some clothes which didn't fit her. So I asked her if she would return them to the shop and she said she wouldn't. The clothes were so cheap that she wouldn't spend any money to get there. For me clothes have a value and I don't want to just throw them away what she did.

Coolio Hi, Katie! Glad to see you back. Happy to hear it was just work that kept you away, and not something more serious - like illness or some kind of George overdose. Smile  I hope you're going to be around for a while because you've really been missed.   Give Flowers

Hey Lizzy...I liked your comment. Lol

Ive been driven just lately to get my
pressies ordered and organised.
Ive never done it so early.

Now I know why. 

Big rumours that
Europe...including UK..are going to have
worst winter this year for 50 years !!!
I remember the last one 62/63...the freezing
temperatures lasted for months and rivers
and the sea froze. 
So Id better get stocked up...More Martini
is required.

Jo - You know I'm just jealous. I'll probably still be shopping when everyone else is taking down their trees! Very Happy

Weather rumours are often wrong, and I hope this is one time when they are. If you have a frigid winter chances are that we will, too and I'm really not up for that this year - even with a boatload of booze stashed in the closet! Fingers crossed they're wrong. Smile
