:wavey: Why does everywhere else have a thread for all the regulars to just chat it up but Kiwi's doesn't? :confused: I'm changing this now so we can all chat about daily life and whatever we want :)

Re: KIWI FANS UNITE!!! (chat thread about whatever)

Wow, surgery on the mouth. I imagine it could be painful.

Nothing too exciting in my life today since I'm working (patiently waiting until 5 pm). Not looking forward to a meeting this afternoon where I might have to fire someone. Am having fun drawing a nice big custom home today though. (I work for an architectural firm).

I might try and play some tennis this evening but the 105 temps is keeping me away.

Re: KIWI FANS UNITE!!! (chat thread about whatever)

Ok.... I NEVER say anything in the forums, but I've decided it's time to break the ice. (I post CONSTANTLY on Kiwi's website.)

How irritated am I today? I live in NYC and Kiwi was at some charity even that I knew nothing about! I would CERTAINLY have gone!

I'll introduce myself. I live in NYC and am a writer, a playwright primarily. I also do some television. Last year I did a show for FOX and named the family "Keefer--" American spelling, but you never saw it anyway. In fact you only heard it once or twice. It was just my way of sneeking a sceret message. (I sent a copy of the DVD to Kiwi in Halle, by the way.) Well, it's pilot season again and i have to go to LA next week for three days! I am so bitter! (In the past I've managed to be here for the US Open.) Kiwi better still be in the tournement when I get back! Of course, even if I go, I don't think I'd have the nerve to say hello, should I see him. I would feel like I was intruding.

I follow tennis RABIDLY-- stay up overnight and watch the scores online when the matches are overseas. I started following Kiwi years ago (97 or 98, can't remember.) I've had a lot of plays produced in Germany. I was there for a production and that's when I took notice.

Anyway, I thought I'd introduce myself, at last.
Nicky

PS. Yes, I'm a writer and I cannot spell AT ALL, so I'm sure there will be lots of errors. Sorry.

First Mary,I hope that your surgery goes well..and I,m still not giving up on seeing that picture! lol

Well it was my first week back at work after a wonderful summer.It is TOUGH,I rather see Nicolas in front of me than..other people! I have 2 jobs,I teach at MC Gill University plus we have a family resto in little italy.

Thanks to this forum,I met great people.I was thinking about the fun that I had with Karen last week..lol.

Nicky..is the Nicky Taylor,the one that writes on Nicolas's website? Is it you? My english is pretty bad..lol.I have problems with spelling and speaking correctly.I speak french first so that is why.

Of please,Nicolas is a guy,why don,t you just go to him and talk to him nIcky,come on.You should see me,I just DON'T care..ask Karen.Too bad that you missed his cooking because I heard..from him,that he is a good cook.

Thank god that the US Open will start pretty soon.I wish that I could go,but i really can't.I can't wait till march and I hope to see some of you in Indian Wells or in Miami.

I,m off..work is calling me!

I was already wondering why you never post in this forums, because I saw your name like 300 times in the "currently aktive users"-box. :wavey:

Re: KIWI FANS UNITE!!! (chat thread about whatever)

Thanks guys :hug:

I am home and alive. Altho I have stitches all over my mouth and I look like Jack from "Nightmare Before Christmas" or something :lol: I can't talk cuz of the stitches + swelling + pain, which I think everyone seems to enjoy righ tnow. And my friends keep making me laugh and it hurts sooo bad to smile so I came in my room to hide from them all.

I'll know in a week if it was anything serious (the lump) or if I'm going to be just fine. Ugh. And the worst part is that he told me today won't be bad, but tomorrow will be my bad day. I FEEL TODAY LIKE WORSE THAN I'VE EVER FELT EVER. I am not looking forward to tomorrow :sad:

Looks like I have a long weekend ahead of me... :sad:

Re: KIWI FANS UNITE!!! (chat thread about whatever)

Mary, have a speedy recovery!

This is a good thread and it's nice to read about the people you chat with. You can meet some really nice people like I did last week with Karine.

About myself, I live in Austin, Texas. A girl never tells her age but let's say am around the same age as Nicolas. I have my degree in interior design and history of art but I work in Architecture as a project manager.

It's fun and I enjoy what I do. I just hate all the headaches associated with keeping up with a large staff who works for me. I've got married coworkers sleeping together, employees never show up to work, etc. I've heard and seen it all. The headaches I get!

I enjoy tennis. I played since I was 8. I never went far with it since my mom was sick so I stopped after highschool. I picked it up again a few years ago and have been playing every since. I have the aching joints to prove it!

I don't follow tennis as much as I used to. I'm too busy playing myself or volunteering at junior tournaments around town. So I get to the point where I'm sick of tennis. I have followed Nicolas for a while. I guess I like to follow my mental headcases. I'm one on the court so I might as well follow one, but from what I read he has a plan and I guess it's to keep his head together because it was screwed on pretty good in Cincy.

:lol: I know. I can't even take credit for that cuz my friend Jon said it, but now everyone's calling me Jack :lol: I'm so loved :p

I hope its not either. It's no so bad right now if you take away the pain, like its not too bad swollen yet, but its supposed to bruise and get worse by tomorrow. I feel like I got plastic surgery, but not the hott outcome. :p I feel like I went in JUST TO SEE what it feels like to get plastic surgery :p I win at life. Not really cuz I don't have Keira's face, but whatever.

I'm gonna go lay down again now... My weekend is going to be L - A - M - E!

Re: KIWI FANS UNITE!!! (chat thread about whatever)

Hello Nicky, nice to hear especially from you since you hardly said something before. But of course I already read your posts in Kiwi's guestbook. But congrats for your official berth here! :bigwave: Just post when you feel comfortable and if you are in the mood to do so and it will be fine I think :)

Most interesting of your post was because I wondered "wow, she was in Germany and that's how she 'discovered' Kiwi". How did that happen? Did you see him playing on TV or reading a German tennis magazine? Maybe you can explain that a bit more in detail, I'm curious for it :angel:

Damn Mary, I hope they have been not too cruel and brutal to you... or else they would have to deal with me :mad: :armed: ;)

;) I hope you only feel like getting a light and easy plastic surgery, and not like one where the surgeon works with hammer, chisel, saw and rasp on your bones. Damn, if you don't feel completely destroyed after something like THAT :eek: I hope you get as well as possible for you under your current circumstances over the next few days *bolster* :hug:

:lol: I know he is scared of you coming after him ;) I'll have to let him know you're my new bodyguard :p


I hope it is going to only get better, but I'm prepping for things getting worse. Eh. Such is life.

How is your vacation from university going?

Hey Mary,I'm glad to see that you are still alive..lol.Somehow,i'm pretty sure that next year we will find a way to finally meet in person.I,m an adorable person,just ask Karen! lol.Ok,I,m a mentalcase as well especially when Nicolas is playing in front of me...it is not pretty.

I am SO sorry Nicky..it is Silver..I was thinking about the model..lol.See can't even read english now.I am half french canadian and half italian.I gave Nicolas a cap saying Germany on it,for the World cup.He promised to wear it.They were started to argue about who would win and I told him:I'Ll think about you crying with that cap on when you,ll watch the Italians win the cup..and he said..yeah yeah yeah,I don,t think so! lol.I just love to piss him off.lol.

BUT,like he said,he has a plan.For a week Karen and I were trying to figure out the "plan".lol.And he was smiling all week long,being happy..maybe that IS the plan.

I was so confused..... cause I'm a "he!" (Perhaps that's why I've never posted here. I think I am the only man!) I was in Dotmund for a production of a play of mine, "Pterodactyls" (for some reason I am VERY popolar in the German language market-- and the Scandinavian market) and I was watching TV and saw Kiwi playing. This is YEARS ago and, although I'd been a tennis fan, I hadn't seen him yet. And I became a fan. It's not, I fear, such an interesting story really.

Since I write for a living, I have periods where I am INSANELY busy and long periods where I can fill my days watching the numbers change on the internet scoreboards. That's why I'm so aggrivated that I have to go to LA for a couple of days during the open. It's not so bad that I have to have meetings. I've managed to schedule them in the morning, so with the time difference, I can be back at the hotel for most of the play. But, I'll be stuck in the air for two days (going & comming).

Mind you, I wouldn't go to the open anyway. First of all, the matches go on for hours and that's WAY to long for me to go without a cigarette! (sad, I
know). Bad enough I can't smoke on planes. And secondly I need to see what's happening on ALL the courts. I need to be home, in my office, pacing and smoking and cursing (my dog finds this most amusing). And, even if I did go, as I said, I don't think I'd approach Mr. Kiefer. First of all, I fear he'd find it an intrusion. Secondly, I work with well-known actors all the time and I feel like I've learned to lay low. thirdly, as I said, I named the family in a TV show I wrote last year "Keefer." Well, I sent Mr. K a copy, when he was in Halle. And, well, now I think, he might think I'm well, nuts. (To be honest, you have to name them something. And you know every name you submit is run through a legal department. The central characters name was originally "Calvin Collins," but there is, it seems a "Calvin Collins" living in Philadelphia, where the show was set. So the legal department tells you you must come up with a new name. Obviously, I wanted an alliterative name, so I went with Calvin Keefer-- there is, it seems, no one named Calvin Keefer in Philadelphia.

Is any of this remotely interesting?
Nicky Silver
