    To connect with both those Raves, I'm making headway in reducing the mess that is this place.
    I have to ask whether it tastes like chicken or not.

    In the train to Athens. Let's hope it is worth the trouble this time. Will arrive in roughly four hours (faster train).

    It should be a rant but it’s a rave: the problem is staying up late regardless of hours slept and while I’ve known this, I have deeply learned it absent distraction, confounding variables, etc. Turns out it’s massively important just like everyone has been telling me all this time.

    The air has been clean here for like a day and I've temperature fairly mild so I was able to open the place up for air and let the cats into the balcony. Good stuff tbh.

    Nothing like a smoking brushfire to make you appreciate the simple idea of unimpeded breathing. Hope it holds up for you.

    Meh. It wasn't that good. Anyway, not terrible either, but the czech factor was a major disappointment.

    Eastern european aversion to paying happened - for starters. You should have seen how she looked at me when I asked -as covertly as possible- if she would pay for the first presentation or for the group of five.
    Btw, she looked like a model. And seems to have been there for -bizzarely!!!- self promotion of the czech organisation in Athens. . .

    Kafka wasn't even czech, nor wrote in czech ffs:)

    Well, he was born in Prague and held Czech nationality at the end of his life, no?

    Prague wasn't that czech either, at the time. And kafka died in 1924, mostly living in sanatoria since his 1917 tuberculosis diagnosis.
    I am disappointed, but should have known better: people are cheap.

    It's just as well. Even if they had paid you, I'm sure their czech would have bounced. :bounce:

    Do you know how long it'll take for it to arrive here?
    Prague had been re-czeched by Kafka's time. Well, at least the lower/labouring classes were Czechs that had flocked to the factories.
    They're born for free.

    You could/should ask about the payment before paying for tickets to Athens.

    my mum booked her flights and is visiting us next month! Haven't seen her in 18 months, and I'm so excited to hang out with my BFF, get her to try legal weed :mischief:, and possibly injure her (or myself) ice skating:woohoo:
