My dear friends and visitors. Do not worry because your emails are probably in my mailbox. 🙂 I’m still on my break and only updated yesterday because it was a brand new event so I wanted to provide a full coverage. 😉 Thank you for the emails, collaborations, visits, comments and continued support! 🙂 The EGW “family” rocks! 😉

  2. spot Says:

  3. George Says:

    Mariana: A lot of smiling emoticons! It means you are really having a good time in your break 🙂

    Mister G

  4. EvaAnne Says:

    Dear miss M.

    I love how you refer to us as the EGW Family!
    Enjoy your break dear, you deserve it!! <3

  5. Monique Says:

    Tango_down: so now we’re a rock band? What’s our name? no doubt something Eva-related has to be in it…

    Mariana: take your time and have a lot of fun!!!

    Hey, Mr. G: how are you related to Miss G?

  6. George Says:

    Monique: Actually, Miss G(race) was my swimming teacher
    Tango_down: I offered myself for drummer. My idol was the Animal from Muppet Show. How things have chenged: In the past it was rock arounfd the clock, now it’s rock around the laptop…

  7. Liz Says:

    Dear Miss M,
    yeah, go on and enjoy your brake. I can imagine it gives you new energy and new ideas not only in what EGW is concerned.
    Thank you for keeping us updated. You do such a brilliant job even when you’re on “holiday”!
    The EGW family rocks around the world;)
    George: I love “Mr. G”… quite mysterious…

    hi to you all and very special thanks to Miss M.; here’s a very new eva fan from germany.
    (ok, i admit and please forgive me – i first saw her in casino royale only a few weeks ago, cause i wanted to go to watch “quantom of solace” and all my friends and collegues said: well, you’ve got to see casino royal at first, ’cause it’s the continuation… so i borrowed the dvd and this was the beginning ;-).

    well, since then, i browsed the web desperateley for news and pics of Eva and finally found your wonderful page.

    thank u so much and also for this latest article in french (great opportunity to activate what i once learned and nearly forgot in school…).

    but, well, to finish this all – if you are interested in pics and news of her from germany –

    last week i was lucky to spot a pic of her in the december issue of “instyle germany” -where she’s dressed in DIOR (a business costume in grey. wearing huge sunglasses).

    there’s no further article mentioned, only this pic, but at least a pic.

    if i had a scanner, i would’ve scanned it, but my own one broke down this
    week-end, so – for the moment – it’s only a hint.
    hope to have a new scanner in two weeks and if you’re interested, i’ll send the pic then.

    ui, i finally come to an end.
    sorry for grammar mistakes and/or poor vocabulary, but, at least, i am very happy to found this great side and have the opportunity to meet other fans from Eva – just have to mention this once again!

  9. Tango_down Says:

    Monique : I thought “The EGW family” was already the name of the band.

    For my part, I would be the bass player.

    George : I was sure you would choose the drums.

  10. Sob Rogue Says:

    Dear: ’em
    In your absence, a revolution is spawning with agonizing support. Their approach lingers in the air…time is of the essence, and the breaking point so close it can be tasted. Hurry back before the economic collapse…before all hope is lost…before the demise of man kind, with extinction so close Mother Nature may as well partake. She will unleash her mighty fury and divide by zero, ending the world as we know it!!!!!! I for one, find this disturbing. So the few who have been left behind ought to unite under a common understanding and oppose this filthy force. Facing such an unruly conundrum under the rule of a ghost chief, is disaster waiting to happen. So hurry back so we can avoid Armageddon!!!!
    -ok things aren’t that bad, but anythings possible

    Safe Travels

  11. George Says:

    Welcome to EGW family Tascha (…what a nice nickname!).
    Tango_down: you surprise me with the instrument choice

  12. Liz Says:

    Welcome Tascha!!!
    It is nice to have some other german fans around.. so I am from Germany, too..
    Did you watach Casino ROyale in German or English? If you watched the German one,, go ahead and watch the English version… It is even nicer with the original voices… just a suggestion.. but I discoverred the beautiful English they speak…

  13. Tascha Says:

    Thank you George!

    As for my nick: a part of my first name and therefore an easy choice :-).

    Seems to be a nice community!

  14. Tango_down Says:

    Hello and welcome Tascha 🙂

    Scanners are so fragile, that’s funny how we can always hear people all around say “My scanner is broken” lol

  15. spot Says:

    Tascha: a warm welcome to you! i’m sure you’ll enjoy it here once you stick around. this is one of the happiest and nicest place aside from Disneyland 😆 love your nickname too 😉

    PS: i’m sure that pic of her is from Paris fashion Week 😉

    Tango_down: what’s the other instrument assignment for the others? 😛

  16. George Says:

    The monthly contest of the Goodnight mag… sorry I mean Hello magazine is on the air and Eva is among the 4 nominees (qualified from weekly voting). I don’t find it so important (so why I notify you? It’s a mystery!) but anyway, follow your heart…


    Mr G.

  17. Tascha Says:

    Tango_down: I swear it by the moon and the stars and the sky… my one’s really broken…

    spot: Thank you, too. Disneyland and Eva altogether in one place? Well, that’s more than I can imagine! Oh, Mann.. I mean, for heaven’s sake…

    Paris fashion Week? I don’t know. She appears together with US-Supermodel Stephanie Seymour and French actress Hélène de Fougerolles – well, ok, because of that, it can be the Fashion Week in Paris!

    P.S. How do you get your smilies…? Tried everything, but, wasn’t successfull…evidently.

  18. Tango_down Says:

    spot : No assigment, you just have to choose your instrument, even if you want to play Alps’ horn or tap dancing.

    So Eva has to share her seat with Mickey Mouse in your heart ?

    A french joke : Pourquoi Mickey mousse ? Parce que Marios brosse.

    Tascha : Hey I never said you were lying 😉 I just say that we often hear people say that their scanner are broken, which proves that they are fragile machines. I also had one who died (with a terrible scream) just after only one year of use. And I’ve already heard, at least once, one of my family’s member, my friends, colleagues say “I can’t send you the pic, my scanner is broken” lol
    I’m just pointing out that because I work in computer’s environment and I bet manufacturers do fragile products just to make you buy it again and again.

  19. spot Says:

    Tascha: yes, it’s definitely PFW, you can check the gallery 😉

    about the smilies: (just remove the “”, + and space 😛 )

    “:” + “)”

    “;” + “)”

    “:” + “D”

    “:” + “P”

    “:” + “lol” + “:”

    hope i helped 😉

  20. Tascha Says:

    Tango_down: didn’t mean it serious either… but thanks for that nice explanation!

    *lol* like the statement about Mickey and Mario..,

    spot: try a smiley: “:”… works? German smileys seem to be different…

    P.S. Haven’t spotted her out so far – in that costume … a lot of pictures… what catagory exactly?

  21. Monique Says:

    Monique: Hi Tascha!!! Welcome to EGW!!! Your name wouldn’t happen to be Natas(c)ha, would it? 🙂
    It’s a good thing you watched CR first before QoS, I recommended that to my friend but I don’t think he listened to me, because he said he couldn’t understand QoS at all (I told him so!!! Such a shame)
    Actually, we have the same beginnings here, I got drawn in when I watched CR too…then I watched her other films and got hooked when I saw The Dreamers…

    Tango_down: why didn’t I think of that? I volunteer as a backup singer for the band!!!!

    George: What a coincidence…did she teach you how to dive, too? 😉

  22. Tango_down Says:


    So pertinent am I

  23. Liz Says:

    Hi, welcome Tascha!!
    Nice to have new people around…
    The same thing with me… I got hooked when I saw CR… and her other films have captivated me…
    Tango_down: I would love to play the piano;)
    George: Do you feel the same about Amy as I do? I kind od miss her answer….

  24. George Says:

    Monique: in the novel Cracks, Miss G is a swimming teacher

  25. spot Says:

    Tango_down: the percussion instruments happens to be my turf 😉

  26. George Says:

    Liz: Yes I feel it. Amy where are you?

  27. Tascha Says:

    Give up the smileys… very mysterious things…

    Monique, Liz: thanks. Yes, it’s Natascha. And it was the same with me. I loved her as Vesper, adored her as Sybilla (Diretor’s Cut) and the part of Isabelle made it up for me entirely. And she was also a wonderful witch in The Golden Compass.
    The only movie I miss so far, is Arsène Lupin.
    There’s a saying of her: “I don’t understand why you can’t see naked people on screen, but we can see a baby being killed. It’s quite strange.” Guess, she’s perfectly right with that.

  28. Liz Says:

    Tascha: That’s a frequently quoted sentence of her… I mean you can find it in many interviews..
    Oh yes, KoH’s Director’s Cut is beautiful… We have just had a discussion about it some posts earlier…
    When you are still missing “Arsène Lupin”, have a look on amazon.de. I ordered it earlier this year. It isn’t even expensive but very quick.
    George: I am dying of lacking her answer… It’s such a interesting topic…
    Please, Amy, come back!!;)

  29. Monique Says:

    Tascha: LOL!!! That happens to be my first name as well, that’s why I asked (only without the “c”) ;)…Arsene Lupin is a nice film, though greatly lacking in Eva…

  30. Monique Says:

    Oh hey what happened to my smiley? 😉

  31. Monique Says:

    Okay, there it is…

  32. Tascha Says:

    Monique: Really? What a nice coincindence!

    Should give my sister a hint about Arsène Lupin; as undoubtedly, Christmas drives nearer and nearer and knowing her as a last-minute-buyer.

    P.S. I’m jealous about your smileys. Should ask a collegue of mine.

    Liz: Oh, there was a discussion about that sentence of Eva? That would be interesting to reread; hope, I can find it.

  33. Tango_down Says:

    I’ve seen the Arsene Lupin movie and well… hum… it sucks ! (sorry but there’s no better word). For my part, I think it’s that kind of botched and unauthentic french movies.
    The main problem is Romain Duris’ performance as Arsene Lupin was not convincing at all, he looked like a young scalawag who spends his time to steal any people and to flirt with all women he meets. He was not the gentleman burglar as we’re used to call him, but it’s true that you have to know the original character in Maurice Leblanc’s books. I prefer much more the Arsene Lupin in “Papy fait de la résistance” lol
    No need to talk about the production’s movie… Jean Paul Salomé is not a very talentuous director, that’s said 😛
    Even Eva’s performance in the movie had nothing special to me, not brilliant, not bad, just a short appearance in a poor movie.
    That’s a movie you have to forget.

  34. spot Says:

    Tango_down: ain’t that the sad truth about that movie 😉

  35. Liz Says:

    Tascha: Well, the discussion wasn’t about EVa’s sentence. I am sorry if I didn’t make that clear.
    We had a discussion about KoH and its Director’s Cut….
    But maybe you’ll even find a discussion on the quotation in very earlier posts… I’m not an old participian either… just joined last december… whereas the site exists since 2004….
    But since it’s taht big and wide-spread I haven’t yet made my way through all posts and discussions. For that, it’s just too much–
    At this point, thank you, Miss M, for your constant work and updates although your on vacation!

  36. Tascha Says:

    Tango_down: read some commentaries in amazon.de yesterday – it really seems not worth buying it. So, my sister can spend her money otherwise :).

  37. Tascha Says:

    Tango_down: well, to think this over… not even as a Christmas present?

  38. Tango_down Says:

    Tascha : Well, to be honest… I have to recognize that it could be a very nice present for someone who for example has a cherry tree in his/her garden… I mean he/she can hang the movie’s DVD on a scarecrow, and get an useful way to scare birds.
    But you’ll tell me, there are much less expensive CDs to do that.

  39. Tascha Says:

    Tango_down: lol… so bad?
