    jeez between Israel being blown up all the time by Arafat Iraq and N. Korea with nuclear warheads and the Europeans calling for “restraint” we are headed toward something. This calls for a drink doesn’t it?

    Yeah, which reminds me, NEVER try to redesign the site after you’ve just had a drink. If anyone around here accidentally caught me while updating, well, it wasnt a pretty sight.
    Sorry about that.
    Even I nearly got a heart attack when I saw the results.

    Ah, so it was red and green??? It’s still burning in my eye πŸ˜‰
    I was desperate for a drink to relax.

    Okay, so I redesigned.
    Please… I had to rebuild the whole stylesheet myself. I’m still tweaking it so many things will be a bit shaky for a few days. Bear with me.

    It’s still an odd shade of green by me…

    I know… I’m not sure I’m quite happy with it myself. Still working on it – but thanks for mentioning it, Jelly Beans, it helps me decide.

    I like it better now, more alive and fresh.
    So…you are a web designer?

    The new color pattern reminds me of – I won’t say it. Where in the world did you ever get THAT shade of green from?

    well, it is better than the depressing black/grey that it was before.

    We do, we do. It’s just that Erbsensuppe (“pea soup”??) is not counted among the happier memories of my German childhood years. But I had to bear with it then, and I’ll bear with it now … gulp …

  • ze uzzer German
    January 8th, 2003 16:24

    B.t.w. It usually came in the variant of “Erbsensuppe mit Bockwurst”, and you wouldn’t even want to guess what THAT was …

    Hmmm.. reminds me of something I had for lunch years ago in Amsterdam, pea soup with the worst kind of non kosher meat. But it was yum.

  • snark
    January 8th, 2003 18:15

    What is the “worst kind of non kosher meat” I wonder.
    Do u still remember the address of the place πŸ˜‰

    I feel like a disco party with all this changing of colours. Shall we dance?

  • She
    January 8th, 2003 18:35

    Yeah, sure, it was something Straat just by the something Canal.
    Thats the most specific I can be after 7 years.

    OOH, speaking of dancing, they had the greatest club there, The Mazzo. Snark, is it still there?

  • die Snark
    January 8th, 2003 21:53

    The Mazzo still operates, but I’ve never been there. Anyway, living in Israel, I was always reading about the world-class Israeli clubs (in Jerusalem!!!). I was always thinking “well, that’s a typical israeli arrogance”. After some traveling – I really think we shouldn’t be ashamed. u’techi medinat Israel!!!

  • She

    I dont know any Jerusalem clubs, thankfully. My clubbing scene took place in Tel Aviv. ABOUT 90 YEARS AGO, so it feels.

    About this restaurant “on something straat by the canal”, it seems I’ve been there. Too bad I could only eat my sandwich and order a cup of tea while my friends had their ham and cheese…

  • She
    January 8th, 2003 22:47

    Ham and cheese isnt what they made it out to be. Its just food really. I hardly ever miss it.

  • snark, again
    January 8th, 2003 23:26

    It’s not the ham and cheese, it’s the fact that u can eat anywhere u like…

    But snails, I’d like to try this.

    Whoah! Nice redesign, She!
    You could’ve asked for help, y’know… but I’d have taken ages and got it all wrong and this is way cool anyway.

    Soon I’ll be coming to you for CSS help.

    For some reason never really cared for split pea soup. Used to joke that it was against my religion to eat (as well as all the other foods I didn’t like, topping the list would be mushrooms, after biology class, just cant eat them anymore)

    how did you get from mass arab suicide to treif pea soup in amsterdam

  • She
    January 9th, 2003 20:14

    I’m not sure how we got here, I lost the thread about 15 comments ago.

  • sna-snar-snark

    the thread is simple – when u have pea soup in Amsterdam there is no guard in the door of the ‘treif’ restaurant. πŸ™‚

  • Shy
    January 9th, 2003 23:23

    one doesn’t need a guard if they serve pea soup, it does the job itself.

    It is a comforting experience that the mention of Erbsensuppe could generate such a lively debate on such a wide range of topics. Somehow reconciles me with some other aspects of my pea soup infested childhood.

    So, what’s next?

  • dani

    so, how do you say pea soup in german with a dutch accent if you’re a security guard posing as an arab? (???)
