I keep forgetting it's already so close. Thanks, EU, for welcoming us

Just to be clear, I wasn't the one doing the mix up. I don't remember who told me it was Switzerland, or maybe I just assumed

LOL no, I'm not moving to Sweden Sweden is where the head office is located but my projects will be with the German and Swiss (and Austrian) branches so some business trips to those countries are possible.

But the best thing about my new job is that the boss of my boss is a friend of my parents who has known me since I was born. She can be tough (like Hilde I imagine) but she's definitely on my side and believes in me I just hope that my German is as good as she thinks it is

Tough, me? What makes you think that?

Here's the picture of the banner. It's not the best shot of it because - as I said, it's taken from my office - but you can recognize your flag and you can see just how huge it is.



That's the Berlaymont building you're looking at ^. (the European Commission).

Murray comes second in wearing clothes well but much more naturally and less studied than Rogie. But you still have to have a certain "ne sais quoi" to look really good in those fashion shots and I think Rogie has it. Don't be mean, I think it's the only quality I like about him
I think I agree with all this.

Eloquent, isn't he?

However, I do agree with him.
If she actually could write a decent song to begin with, she wouldn't need to be so desperately provocative and it's a shame that it works because it's putting good female artists in the shade.

No worries, I can do both In fact, I've been brushing up on my German for a while now, I had to speak it in the job interviews.

It was much better than I had feared based on my tooth ache. Not my molar but the tooth before it has a small cavity which the dentist will fix next week.

Gum operation?

I confuse the ex USSR countries all the time (and even don't know some I bet), so that's all right I guess. I just keep it for the next time one of the europhile on here will have a stab at Americans and their lack of geographic skills.

JM, it was not a confusion of similar names, honestly. "Sveice" and "Zviedrija" are not similar in Latvian at all and I would never confuse them, not in English or German either. They were just telling me all about Switzerland and what kind of work the company does there and maybe that's why I assumed it originated there. Either that, or someone else told me it was Switzerland. I'm sure no one told me anything about Sweden before I started working here.

In any case, Sweden and Switzerland are very different countries in my mind, there's no chance I would ever confuse them.
