Fitz has improved noticeably, but he's not out of the woods yet.

He and his brother will be eleven in December. Beagles tend to have long life spans and the vet doesn't think it's age related. He has kidney and liver damage caused by something toxic - bacterial, not poisonous. He seems to be rallying. The second blood test showed some improvement, but still wasn't too good. We'll see how he goes this week. He's been having fluid infusions pumped in under the skin, rather than intravenously, which achieves the same result.

Aw, they're cute...

I read up a lot on dogs nowadays since sometimes people want to bring one or more extra dogs to a holiday home, for which we require permission of the home owner. In such cases it helps if you know the breed and height of the animal. When I have to ask a French homeowner, I invariably have to look up the breed name, which is often quite different from what you'd expect.


3 more nights of sleep till the concert...

and I'm coming down with fever. Nooooooooooooooooooooo!

I got my Internet/phone bill today. Interestingly enough, they bill me for a call I didn't make, to a phone number I don't even know. It costs 18. I'll have to call tomorrow to explain the case and try to get refunded because, off course, you can't join them by mail. I hate it when that kind of thing happens!

Actually I'd recommend dealing with such cases on the phone. Make sure you don't get overly angry, write down the name of the people you speak to and use it in conversation, and repeat the questions they ask.

Bonny: Which concert is that? I checked the previous five pages and the only mention of a concert relates to a bus ticket and fainting, but nothing about what the concert is.

Aqua: Dealing with providers on the phone is also one of my least favourite chores. I'm generally pretty good at getting what I want, but it requires considerable patience and I just ended up paying for the last problem I had because I just wasn't in the mood for the tussle.

Thanks for the advice, Bonny. I usually tend not to be angry when dealing with hotline people cause I know it's useless.

Poly: yeah, these problems would be dealt with without having to use the phone, it's 2018. And they're internet providers, after all.

Poly: Dir en Grey. Considering I missed out on Primus last year due to lack of funds ( AND they played Southbound Pachyderm at that set :crying: ) and a number of ZPZ concerts I'm going to make amends to myself.

Bought the trip there, bus ticket - bought the concert ticket itself, reserved a bed at the local hostel, but haven't booked the trip back. Because the buses all leave way too early and I did want to spend some time in Cologne, I'm going back by train.

Bonny: Have a good trip.

Aqua and Bonny: What are your internet upload and download speeds? Mine are 8.5Mbps down and 0.9 Mbps up. Ridiculous.

Still looking for reasons for moving to Europe? :bald:

Have fun and enjoy the show, Bonny.

Date number 4 was the good one, apparently. I spent the night at her place and only went to work around 11 Am.

Now going to spend the whole week-end at my ex-girlfriend's place, in Lille.

Nice going!

I'm back, the Dir En Grey concert was awesome and it AWESOME and it was A-W-E-S-O-M-E and Kyo did a dance where he pretended to tear his heart out of his ribcage and catapult it into the audience and then he did a dance where he held the microphone at the height of his belly button and pulled at the cord in such a way so it looked like he was disembowellig himself and then stomped on it and at the final song he took off his shirt and...

(goes off to take a shower)

Anyway here's Rinkaku:

I'm glad the show was great, Bonny. You seem to have had a great time.

As for me, I spent an awesome week-end.

I put a review of the show in the Music section and on my Tumblr (latter has pictures) and a report of my trip without pictures in a separate topic here.

Nice to hear you had a good weekend!

Bonny: Your download speed is four times faster than mine and your upload speed is twenty four times faster.

Aqua: You still haven't told me your internet speeds. My understanding is that internet speeds in France are pretty spectacular.
