    Well, not triumphant enough, more like with a sore back, a lot of coughing as a side-effect from the cold and with bleeding hands thanks to the violent act of milking a tree.

    I was away for three weeks and, i know, most of you did not even notice i was missing. The reason was that i had to go and help my dad in a hobby of his. That is the collecting of olives from olive trees to produce cooking oil and...no that's about it. Just cooking oil.

    Some info: My dad's place of origin is Malvasia. It's considered one of the most beautiful places in Greece and also, one of the best preserved medieval castles in the Mediterranean. It's full of tourists almost all year long and, in my opinion, it's best in the fall and winter.

    Which is one of the reasons i said yes when he asked me to come help him. It wasn't like i had anything better to do and the climate was to my liking, so off we went to three weeks in hell.

    Our fields have about 1000 olive trees and, to collect the olives, one must first lay down nets on the ground surrounding the tree and then, using tools, forcibly separate the olives from the tree. The olives would then fall on the net and then we would collect them.

    It was hell. There are no words to describe it. I mean, it's good to produce your own consumables when there's an economic crisis going on, but still...

    I can no longer feel my back. I mean that literally. It's like it's not my own back but a foreign object occupying space in my body. My hands are bleeding all over from a multitude of scratches and all i seemed to be able to do was, go to the fields at 6:00(!) am in the morning to 5pm in the evening and then faint on my bed for the hours in between.

    And i think i'd do it all again.

    Also, i want to inform you that i'll also be away from December 3 to 7, as i'm gonna go on a trip to Amsterdam.

    That's all. You can all go and curse your damn luck that i came back now. I allow you to. :p

    I think foin lives in Salonica. That's like on the other side of Greece. So. No. I didn't meet him.

    Hella fun! Though the pain on my back kinda lessens the feeling. But it was worth it. I'm going back after my trip to Amsterdam. Still a lot of tree milking left to do. :p

    i actually did not even know Tur's from Amsterdam. If he's ever online and ever read this, may he contact me and offer me advice on sightseeing and an inconspicuous, place where we can meet in secret and plot the destruction of your way of life.

    Apart from that, i don't even know what my time plan for the four days i'll be there will be. Thankfully, i have a friend who's tagging along that is just the right fruitcake to actually plan ahead for the rest of us.

    Tur doesn't really live in Amsterdam. Well his location says: "Not in Amsterdam", so I guess he doesn't live there.
    You should meet him though and maybe start plotting some evil..

    ugh, again with the "Delliepoo"...i told you not to call me that. How are they gonna take me seriously as a mastermind of evil and the greatest dark force out there if you continue calling me that?
