I'll just move this post of yours in here:
In some GM thread Mark Lenders and Burrow were having a discussion and someone else said that it's hard to tell who's commenting because they have the same avatar. Then someone said we should all have that avatar, and ... it just caught like fire in a dry forest
The more posters switch to it the funnier it got, but the original story is not really that good or funny.
Just like I was pretty disappointed with the backstory for Ferrer's "Pics" nickname. I mean I thought the story about the guy who made the thread was funny, but I didn't see a reason for that to become his official nickname. The nickname is not actually about Ferrer -- it could have been any player.
Ah thanks for informing me Kat
. I suspected it was something like that, and jests are always good, when in good spirits.
We're indeed having a good time over here considering the circumstances. It's a heat wave over Europe now, not just the South, but the North as well, and knowning how terribly BAD the ... ehm 'summer' has been for the Northerners so far, I am happy to know that the folks back at home got at least one week of hot summer weather as well.
Over here? 38 degrees Celcius - in the shade.
That's pretty friendly, knowing that the temp over at Clermond-Ferrand, a bit more to the north, surpassed the 40-degrees mark!
Not that I mind that much, the Gardon river is lovely and cooling. Only my planned hikings are *off*, it's a genuine no-go with these kind of temperatures, at least not over 15 kms or such, which I in all honesty think is a sort of 'beginner's' distance... well better luck next year on that. Still good on the plonging and canoe'ing in the river though!
Not to forget mentioning getting some great deep tan (pretty hard to avoid, even with sun blocks) - I welcome the folks at home to mistake me for an Italian or a Spaniard once again when I return.
THE SUN = KING! (as well)
BF is happy that he manages to make more distance on the crutches with ever passing day. He's doing real fine lately, and fortunately manages to entertain himself on the terrasse of the mobile home we hired, playing his games and doing a bit of programming on the computer.
s - well there is a bit of your answer. Will reply to your PM soon.
