What are you doing on June 7th? Whatever you have planned, there's always time to vote - at least according to these (the last one is my favourite).
There's always time to vote - Tour de France
There's always time to vote - The bank robbers
There's always time to vote - The slasher film
Reading the agenda of the European Parliament sessions, I can't help but notice that among the miscellaneous topics at the end, there's often something about repelling parliamentary immunities, and the names always sound Italian. Clichés, clichés...
Today, I tried to bake brownies, using a recipe I've tried dozens of times before.
For no apparent reason, the cake wouldn't bake, so I left it in the over a bit longer. It burned, and it's still not baked.
Right now I hate cooking, I hate food, I hate kitchens and the whole universe in general.
Today, I was trapped inside the building of the European Commission's Directorate-General of Enterprise and Industry by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.
Fortunately, we found an exit around the back.
My job is getting more and more interesting.
Today, I took the floor at a "high-level stakeholders' conference" at the European Commission, speaking to a former Commissioner and the head of cabinet of the Vice-President of the Commission, in front of more than 400 lobbyists, researchers and representatives of the member states.
It went well, but I hope next time it doesn't take that long for my hands to stop shaking.
Flat-hunting mission in Brussels successful. A suitable target has been identified, engaged and negociated within the allowed time frame. A deal has been struck for a two-room apartment in the area of Schaerbeek after minimal but successful bargaining. Moving in at the beginning of January. Pictures available eventually.
I'm coming back to Paris on Sunday, and now I feel like I'm on vacation at last.
I has a job !
Starting in Brussels in January. In the meanwhile, I'm in Paris and fully available for drinks and socializing.
