Capt
See you spent lot of time welcoming and saying Hi. Its a tedious process for a lazy bum like me.
Lets come up with a symbol and a reference of complete list so that you can copy and paste without having to type.
Ya the table does not wrap the text anymore.

Dr Saab -

OK, how about putting everyones name up there to copy and paste - how does that sound?

 Also, what sort of reference did you have in mind? It sounds like an interesting idea if you can elaborate  a bit more.

BTW, when you said "see you in Fenway" the other day - you have tickets - no kidding?! ha ha

Naam liya Saitan hajir.

Capsy, Sndy ,TL ani all of u-These days I am so lonely in this new place you can't imagine.No neighbours, no one at all. Neither pets are allowed. This is like a haunted house, huge with no sign of life.  People in this country are cold and shy just like our Capsy. And every now and then something strange happens. Every alternate days someone leaves three Rocher  in my mail box.It is kind of creepy coz no one knows me here.Kasto darlagne? May be it's for  the girl who was living here before. But still  kasto darlagne... there is no name and nothing .. just the chocolates.

Everyone is  invited at my place.Please surprise me with your visit.Danga parchu hola ma. Just mail me if anyone is coming down to EU. Yeah,  but don't come  in Christmas break .My family will be visiting me then. But still it is okay. Aye huncha, Papa won't mind I guess. I will explain him everything.

 Good Afternoon Folks!

 Lemoney - You too know that cricketer rey? Btw, lucky you that you have a fall break. As for us, the fall doesn't break and hence, no fall breal for us. How sad is that hai? :-)

 Danny - I bet you are making all those facial expressions while typing too. Btw, lapsilai pear bhancha rey? You gotta be kidding me! Oh boy, you seriously needs to learn Nepali so that you can teach your children and grandchildren too.Hehehe

 sndy/TL - Hey ladies, thanks for the messages. Hope both of you are doing wonderfully well.

 Captain - I must say you have gracefully carried this thread, looks very innovative!

 Sitaraji - I too agree that amala/tamarind tipping was fun.

 kalanki/Mega boy/npl2us/Loote/NKC/Sparrow - Hope all is well.

 Camo - I will do it later this evening hai ta. Crowded bhayecha sahar ta, but still so much aafnopan!

 Mokshya/Nepaali/Deep/Shirish - Happy Dashain!

 Cleo Maicha - I thought you were going to visit us! Take care girly.

 Audrey - Are you celebrating Dashain in Nepal?

 Salaam namaste to the missed ones as well.

Thank you Flips, but it's your personal grace and charm that has made this place worth visiting if you ask me.


BTW, it just struck me, again, that many people we dont know, whom we've never said hello to, could be reading our conversations and forming opinions about us based on what we say here. Man, the perils of the internet.

Usss usss Brig Ma'am, don't make me blush - remember I am supposed to be a shy person as per Cleo? LOL!

 Maicha, does that mean the beginning of the next year? Sounds great. I bet you'll be more comfortable here as it has been said that people in this part of the world are not orthodox as they in your part of the world. Don't know how much truth the statement holds!

Cleo -

Sorry, didn't mean to minimize your concern. Have you thought of reporting the matter to your landlord?

As for the US education system, I am sure there will be plenty of people here to offer you advise and help ... he he.

Flips -

Unfortunaley, the weather here is like Christmas ...he he. I'll be getting together with friends and family for Dasain. Glad it's over the weekend this time. How about you - there must be lots going around for you at that time I imagine, right?

Italians and orthodox? Well, maybe in the Vatican - my personal experience has been anything but.
Then again, it's been limited experience and I haven't actually lived there so Cleo can probably speak to it more than I can.

:)
