German computer geeks learn to flirt

Thanks to Todd for finding this one...

"Even the most quirky of computer nerds can learn to flirt with finesse thanks to a new flirting course being offered to budding IT engineers at Potsdam University south of Berlin. The 440 students enrolled in the master's degree course will learn how to write flirtatious text messages and emails, impress people at parties and cope with rejection.

Philip von Senftleben, an author and radio presenter who will teach the course, summed up his job as teaching how to "get someone else's heart beating fast while yours stays calm."
The course, which starts next Monday, is part of the social skills section of the IT course and is designed to ease entry into the world of work.

Students also learn body language, public-speaking, stress management and presentation skills.
"We want to prepare our students with the social skills needed to succeed both in their private life and their work life," said Hans-Joachim Allgaier, a spokesman for the institute at Potsdam University where the course is being offered.

Challenge this

My claim is very simple. You cannot possibly understand "One hundred years of solitude" (Cien Años de Soledad) unless:
a) you read it in Spanish
b) you are Latin American (or, maybe, have lived in Latin America for a reasonable number of years... maybe)

Yes, I completely agree with myself (?)

The Delacroix of French cuisine is back

Rumour has it (yes, I believe rumour more than my own eyes) that M. Al-Ghazi is back in town. The People are revolting in demand of Fondue au Chocolat, or, as the French say, "chocolate fondue". Join me in this gastronomic crusade and let's get it done before winter is over... allons enfants de la patrieeee le jour de gloire est arrivé...

(Thanks Leah for the inspiration)

Anne, the Nuesslisalat is:
CORN SALAD 350 s/g (Lambs Lettuce) (Valerianella locusta). Grow like Lettuce. Regular sowings required for constant cropping. Unsuitable for hot weather, even in cool districts.
1421 - Machelong Traditional Dutch Corn Salad with large round green leaves. Use in salads or cooked. Pkt: 200 seeds: $3.50 25g: $13.30.

Bye bye Lucky

Lucky the koala Canberra's feisty symbol of survival after the January 2003 bushfires has died. She was old for a koala between 12 and 14 years of age and constantly fighting to recover from the terrible injuries she suffered during the January 18 firestorm in 2003.

Lucky, the sole survivor in Tidbinbilla's koala enclosure, was found by a ranger clinging to a charred tree six days after the firestorm and suffering burns to more than a third of her body. Lucky became a symbol for Canberra's recovery from the firestorm and something of an international celebrity.

6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (5-7), 6-7 (8-10), 9-7


Rafa Nadal, como lo pirata que indica su look, le "robó" Wimbledon de las manos a Federer y desordenó (¿para siempre?) el escenario del tenis actual. Cuando tomó la copa no sabía por donde agarrarla. Conoce la de Roland Garros, la muerde como si fuera su alimento, pero en Wimbledon lo que hizo Rafa Nadal fue invadir el territorio ajeno. Tomar lo que el otro tenía y protegía. Humilló a Federer en París y lo llevó al límite de la noche del domingo para arrebatarle lo único que a Roger Federer le quedaba en sus duelos personales. Cada uno era bueno en su superficie. Eso ya no es así: Nadal ganó en la casa del vecino.

This one is also very nice!



Matt's words:

"Make sure to click "watch in high quality" right underneath the video"

Much better!

See you!

Where the hell is Matt - 2008!!!

Hey guys!

How are you going? Matt, the dacing boy, has just released his third dancing video:

My favorite dancing video is still the second one (maily because of the background music) but this one is also bloody good! My favorite dance in this last video was the one he did in Gurgaon (India). How about you? What do you think?
