Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thank you, Alexandra.  I agree we make a good team.  That said, I have been in talks with Paris.  There have been fierce negotiations with the gnomes in exile.  It's not that I want to turn over the reins of power, but I'm being offered chocolate shoes...

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes

I thought we already had the chocolate shoes on our side.   Oh well I'm all for negotiations with gnomes in exile but make sure you don't sell yourself short. I'll back you up one way or the other.

Now I'm off for some socialising and music, the face to face kind. It was a fun day here on ET!

Hate to tell you, Izzy, but the ignoble gnomes ate the chocolate shoes in a fit of conspicuous-consumption itch at the end of the gluttonous Paris-restaurant supper that rounded off their decadent day.

Jérôme admitted to me this morning that he shouldn't have done it, he'd bitten off more chocolate than he could chew. Cold comfort that will be to you.
