Paola Suarez went to a tv show yesterday, they asked her, if you were a PIMP, and you had these tennis players as prostitutes working for you, who do you think would make more money.

Gaston Gaudio, David Nalbandian, Zabaleta.

And Paola said, David.

It surprised me, I thought more girls would pay to sleep with Mariano

I'm having a hard time picturing David as a "ho", but ok. As long as women would pay to sleep with him....

Interesting take by Paola on which Argie guys would do well if she was pimping them out.

Mariano could do well and I have seen at a few tournaments, that he has an enthusiastic following with the ladies.

David well I wouldn't know, but he has a rugged charm and I know a female friend of mine loves David's eyes and she isn't really into tennis, though I am getting her to actually watch matches now.

I really, really need another vacation. Even though it's slowed down here, we still get weird phone calls and weird questions-some that are not even work-related. Remember last week's phone call? Now, just today, some parent called asking if her child's medication made it to the school OK. Of course, I wouldn't know, so I asked the caller where she mailed the child's medication (it was the child's residence hall), and of course, being the nice person that I am, I directed the call to the child's residence hall. Not only is this office financial aid, we're also the admissions office; the registration office; the cashiers; the collections office; the cafeteria (believe it or not, someone asked about food); the President's Office; you name it, we're it. And, yes, now we're housing, and the "love" spot...

I think that Roger will be fine. He's never had that much trouble out of Roddick-not that Roddick has a superior indoor record. You would think that with his serve he would be able to blast people off the court. But we see in Roger's case, blasting your opponent off the court will not be an option.

Try not to be too nervous Fedex. Roger is the best in the world at the moment and he will do his best.

actually, in wimbledon 2003 david didnt look very well, he was a little fat, he even injured his abs and had to serve like dementieva against henman (otherwise he would have beaten tim easily, I remember in the third set there were 6 or 7 consecutive breaks, on grass, breaking tim was not a problem, dave just couldnt win his service games).
After wimbledon he didnt play till sopot, and he trained very hard to lose weight and get fitter.
And he looked great in toronto, us open.

He even said that he didnt like the way he looked during wimbledon.

I only saw bits and pieces of that match. I think that, if he weren't injured, he was poised to put together another spectacular run at Wimby. Who knows, right?

I hope now that he can get back into shape again like he was at the end of 2003 and early 2004. He looked great. Not great-incredibly ripped, buff, and toned.

yes, he has a strong cordobes accent

He is from the Cordoba province though isn't he? I have heard the accent from the city of Cordoba is famous all around South America and not just in Argentina.

We have heaps of accents in Norway, there used to be a saying that a Norwegian speaks 8 languages, but 7 of them are Norwegian.

Oh, that's interesting. Wow....

The reason is the landscape, as there were plenty of isolated mountain villages, behind the fjords and the fact that it was very hard to get around the country, and the situation has improved a lot since the oil was discovered.

The regional variations can be quite funny, my accent isn't so bad, though there are certain expressions that our southern bretheren don't seem to get.
It's fortunate most of the people in our regiment are from around the same area, but that can have its own problems.

Same here. Some expressions we use in the South are totally lost on outsiders. I guess when people hear me talk, they do notice my accent. It was worse when I was younger, but I've lost some of it after college.

Yes - England also has so many different accents and dialects which may seem strange for such a small country. Coming from the south-east mine is fairly standard (kind of female Tim Henman :p ), but Liverpool, Newcastle and Birmingham are a law unto themselves!!

Hi TennisLurker - only just found your message from last night - sorry for late reply. No I don't have a copy of the David/Kucera match because I was there live and my VCR wasn't working at the time :sad: Our TV coverage of Wimbledon is really good, so most matches are televised and can be recorded.

Sorry to hear Jazz, that you have to come back early. Here we have sun today, but certainly to cold to wear a bikini or something.

Well off to classes, boring probably, but everyone has to show up:(

Hi Rosie!
Why your wish is only for 2004?

Is 2004 some special year for David?
Or for you?...

If I would have swam I'd been dying right now! LOL The weather was too cold, like 3°C, so I just walked by the beach, ate a lot and visited other cities as well.

don't u have any winter swimming? here we swim even 0°C sometime, it can keep u healthy, and strong-minded. but i agree hot swimming will be better, at least you won't tremble in the swimming suit when facing the blowing wind.

boven, good luck to ur work, hope u will like what you are going to do.

Wish, I could say the same here. It looks like its going to rain, and then it doesn't, those clouds can be deceiving. There has been minor showers, on and off today. Well, what can I expect? Winter is fast approaching!

Well, I just have to say that 'Farenheit 9/11' is the best movie I've seen all year. :yeah: It was, as the british would say, 'bloody brilliant'. ;). Michael Moore is a damn genius. :yeah:

Yours is back; now I have to switch back to dial-up for two days because broadband is acting like a bitch.

jazz_girl
10-12-2004, 03:00 PM
I've been having problems with my broadband as well. It's been raining a lot lately and it's very windy, I guess that was the problem, but the service guys fixed it a couple of minutes ago.
I'll stay here for some more minutes and then I'll go back to study :sad:

sigmagirl91
10-12-2004, 03:27 PM
I do not have a single clue about what's happening to my broadband. I was on the phone for nearly an hour with the phone guy trying to figure it out. Hope they call this evening to let me know what the problem was.

It's so annoying when it happens!!!

sigmagirl91
10-12-2004, 04:18 PM
Yeah, and even more annoying is waiting for dial-up to "dial-up". The speed is so slow that I can watch paint dry, and it will still be downloading. What a bore!!!!

Grrrr....my broadband at home is still down. "Server authentication problems". For those of you who are not computer savvy, that means you cannot access the Internet via that server because your login cannot be confirmed. I hate that. So, I'm waiting for another day or two while they work to restore service.
