Thrown in the Towel

I've TRIED tried TRIED so. so. HARD to get. along. with. and relate. to. and LIKE the local monocultured aussies in my age vicinity but it's like dead in the water -a sinking anchor everytime of IMPOSSIBLE TO RELATE-there is a total lack of understanding on both sides.

So I've thrown in the towel and only bothering to invest in the rare-as-hen's-teeth-here Real Europeans from Europe now (even if they always do go home and leave)...it's still so much more rewarding- I actually feel like as a species they hail from my same galaxy...it's a really fantastic sense of relief...to not feel like such an alien in this country! And for CONVERSATION to just flow...

Well, I did offer you the opportunity to engage with a practiced conversationalist, but you declined. You're just too fussy, ZZ.

I have hot chocolate in the cupboard. That's good for keeping warm. Would that help?

yes well unless you can pixelate your presence down under a la Mike TV in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory it's not good enough LOL!

Yup hot chocolate has been good- my trick is to tap a bit of cinnamon on top...that is realy good temporary relief when skin and bones keep losing heat...
