or automatic dishwashing soap, get the liquid hand soap.
He comes back with Hand dishwashing soap.
Me: Why did you buy this?
Hubby: They didn't have Dial dishwashing soap.
Hubby: Do they make that?
My fault ,I should have known , too much info for his verbal receptors.

A typical example:

and get us bread? And if they have eggs, bring 6 pieces.

HE: Sure Honey, I'll do!

After a short time he comes back, carrying 6 loaves of bread.

SHE: Why on earth did you buy six loaves of bread?!??

HE: They had eggs.


See what I mean?? One thing is for sure ... HE has done everything right ...



Okej, where's the exit?? *search search* ... ah, THERE ...

What year was this?

Thanks for the link, Stef-fan, I need cheering up today. I'm still seething over the U.S. being robbed of a win in World Cup yesterday.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Not sure if you guys have seen this super short clip of Stef in 1984:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOzBs...eature=related

The way she answered the question was spot on, but there was no arrogance about it at all. Bravo Steffi, even at the age of 15!!!

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

welcome blauundweiss
Are you a Schalke04 fan ?


Speaking about "football", France officially became an unreal, shameful, and hopeless team. We knew before the WC that we wern't going to win it, but THIS.
Totally disgusted to the end by THIS team, especially some players, we've never seen that.

Shame World Champions

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I remember a post match presser in English. I don't remember what tourney, or the year, but what I do remember is a kind of disconnect between Steffi and the press and it went about like this.
Press: Why do you think you can become No1.
Steffi: Why couldn't I?
Press: No, no,you don't understand what makes you think you can become No.1
Steffi: Yes, I understand, but, why couldn't I become No.1
It went on back and forth, back and forth , just like that for quite a while until Peter Graf finally stepped in and asked the press guy, What are you doing, why do you do this?
That was the end of the presser.
The reason that I remember this is it really showed an insight into Steffi's mentality early on and I was impressed with that mentality. It also showed some early awareness on her part of what some in the press liked to do, which was to start little controversies what Becker termed as "little wars" between players.
Now, there was one presser that she did try to explain Why? I don't know for sure if it was before.
That went on like this.
Steffi: I work very hard.
Press: Don't all players work hard.
Steffi: Yeah, we are all trying out there.
Press: But you think you work harder than the rest.
Steffi: I don't know what they do, I know what I do.
Press: Martina and Chris. Why do you think you can challenge them.
Steff: I am young and just coming on and Chris is...
Press: So you think they are old? And there time is over.
Steffi: No. They are still great players. I just think my time will come.
What did the some of the press do.
they went to other players,
Steffi recently said, that she works very hard and wonders how hard others do. What do you think of that? and
Steffi recently suggested that you (Martina) and Chris were old and thinks that your time of dominance will soon be over. Care to comment?
Of course they all commented.
This is one of the reasons later in her career why I think in a presser when Steffi was asked about ten times by the press the same question. She finally said, you can ask the same question in different ways but my answer will not change. I know what you want to hear, and I am not going to give you what you want. A journalist responded, Oh , don't be that way.
Steffi: don't be that way?, what way? how am I being? Silence. I always wished someone had shouted, "honest" but noone did.
I remember thinking after seeing or reading even her early press conferences.
"this kid is smart,confident in her abiliities,honest, thoughtful, and has repect for others, man, she is going to have a hard time with the press"

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

djul14, I sympathize with your feeling of disgust. I share this feeling, but the reason for my disgust is different. I am so proud of our players and their effort and heart in the last match, actually, throughout this W.C. trying their absolute best, only to feel after the last match, as some on the team said, "gutted", their hearts ripped out. This team has down everything they could possible do to earn respect in the football world. Only to be shown none in return. To have that brillant comeback taken away,only on what can in the most polite terms be a "make up" call. A make up call is the kindest view I
can give, a make up call in that the ref maybe doubted an earlier call he had made, and assumed in the commotion in front of the net there had to be some U.S. penalty committed,blew the whistle, and gave the ball to Slovenia, unfortunately for him there was not any U.S. infractions, only Slovenian fouls, and hence the disgust. Against FIFA providing this incompetent ,inexperienced official. Against this official who was absolutely hopelessly lost.
This is the best team that the U.S. has ever sent to the W.C., and many of us were hoping that this team would break through and earn some respect in the world. What have they got for their effort,a big ..., well the word starts with f in return.
I can assure you the tie doesn't feel like a tie, it feels like a loss, among fans and I have to think among the team. I only hope they can recover in time for Algeria, I don't think they will, I think they'll be gone.
So djul14, what's worse?, I don't know, but the disgust is the same.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I was gutted too for USA !!! I screamed (of happiness) at my tv when they scored the 3rd goal. I was jealous too, because THIS team has heart, fighting spirit, team spirit and will, they deserved to win so much, but the referee, well I still didn't understand his decision, there is absolutly no explanations to it.

Sorry for the soccer interlude, lol.


Thanks fot the interview above, I remember reading the first one with her dad interupting. And i love this

Ach! Nooooooo to Schalke04. Blauundweiss is toward RC Strasbourg and the beginning colors of FC Bayern. But naturally I prefer the team from my Heimat in the mountains.

Btw, my French is not good enough to translate an article.
