I’m slowly getting back to “normal life”, but Holidays Season is never like normal life, right? So please bear with me! I have to read plenty of emails and try to get back on track! Thanks for the emails, support, contributions! 🙂

So… did you miss me much? 😉

In the meantime I’ve added a scan from Madame Figaro Russia scanned by deydi and sent in by Elmira.

    Mariana: so still new here… so much thanks for everything you’re doing here. Missed it three days because of my parent’s wedding anniversary (why do have people get married in December, just some days before Christmas???).

    George, Liz: jeah, great Looool from my side, too (as my smileys still don’t work). Just wonder, what Tango_down will say to your idea…

  7. Tango_down Says:

    George : Ich bin ein berliner 😀

  8. George Says:

    Tango_down: Hello, JFK 🙂

  9. EvaAnne Says:

    Mariana, it’s good to have you back, of course we missed you!!! <3 <3 <3

  10. Tascha Says:

    Tango_down: I’m impressed… :).

  11. Tascha Says:

    About Madame Figaro: Eva’s the best looking…

  12. Tascha Says:

    Tango_down: and what else?

  13. Tango_down Says:

    Tascha : Nespresso ? (with George Clooney’s voice)

    Well… I know rather well some german lieder, my favorite is Heïdenröslein from Schubert. Here’s the link to the poem by Goethe : http://www.intellego.fr/index.php?PageID=document&blog=121&document=1154
    My only german knowledge is all about lieder’s lyrics and titles lol Very useful you know if I want to accost a charming woman, saying “Ich bin der welt abhanden gekommen” or “Der Hirt auf dem Felsen”. I’m sure to be very successful with that.

  14. Liz Says:

    Tango_down; I am pretty sure you’ll be successful with that! LOL
    But it’s really nice to know taht German culture or rather German music and poetry is known in France and other countries.

    LOL on the Nespresso part. It’s only one hour ago taht I saw the advert on TV… He’s lovely, isn’t he?=)
    But I think Tascha would like to hear some more German sentences that you know.
    Right, Tascha?

    Anyway, to all of you; I wish you and your family nice Christmas days and a happy new year!!
    Hope you have a successful Christmas eve;)

  15. George Says:

    Liz: You mean a successful Christmas Eve with Green elfs I suppose… 😉

  16. Monique Says:

    Whoo!!! I’m back, after a whole week of being a party animal (blech!!!), I can finally settle down to this!!! (but I did have a nice time at our university’s 100th Lantern Parade…I yelled myself hoarse and now I have a sore throat and a cold…sniff, sniff)

    Mariana: Of course we missed you!!! Okaeri Nasai (“Welcome Home” in Japanese)

    Thanks for the pic, deydi, Elmira and Mariana!!! Eva really stands out!!!

  17. Tascha Says:

    Liz: Tango_down could wish to us a “Fröhliche Weihnachten” and a “Guten Rutsch” lol.
    That should be enough for the moment…Anyway, would like to hear him singing “Heidenröslein”…

    About the Nespresso spot: saw it only yesterday evening again… hm, a nice one…and, no, I don’t say anything about George Clooney…

    Tango_down: Yeah, German girls would be “entzückt”…

    Liz: same to you about your Christmas wishes and to everyone else here!.
    Have a lovely, peace- and joyful time with a lots of Christmas presents!
