ABEL and Rono can both come to England and meet on neutral ground. I'll chaperone them.

Sorry for this late reaction, but I had to read 200+ posts first. This thread has again grown a lot in the past 18 hours.

So I made my sister a happy person yesterday.
As I maybe mentioned before, on Monday I checked with Dell when the computer would be delivered and they said Thursday 2 September. I thought that was a bit late, but hey, if it is like that, it is like that. However, yesterday I checked again with Dell (and since I had the tracking code I could also see where the package was exactly, as the shipping was done by UPS) and then they suddenly said 1 September again. So I grabbed my stuff, got in the car and drove to my sister (which is about a 105 minute drive). She had to work all day today and so she could not be home when the computer would arrive, so big brother who has a vacation would stay at her place to wait for the computer. Yes, I brought a book with me and some DVD's to kill the time I'd have to wait (since they only indicated it would be somewhere between 9 AM and 5 PM).
Around 14:45 I arrive at my sister's place. Or rather, I reach her street. There, the street is blocked by a truck from UPS. I see the delivery man at her door and starting to walk back to his van. Quickly, I park the car at the side of the street and call my sister saying that the UPS guy is at her door. I also jump out of the car and walk to the man, asking if this is the computer for my sister. He confirms it and says that he couldn't find a name tag on the door, so he could not ring the correct bell. At that moment my sister walks out of the door, so she can sign for delivery. Thus, instead of being delivered somewhere on 1 September, it's even 31 August she gets her new computer. You can imagine her joy.
And it made me realise I probably would have waited all day for nothing should the delivery man have come round that day, since he wouldn't have found the correct bell to ring.

This time, I really was the right person at the right place at the right time.

I think I'm going to sleep now.
But I'm going to wait a few seconds to see if you did something else good today

So, with the computer delivery out of the way, I could really take full advantage of my visit to my sister (even though she wasn't home today). Yesterday evening I took her and her house mate (also her best friend) out for dinner. Not a fancy restaurant, but a student-type dinner (and they have a lot of those in Maastricht as they have fairly sized student population). We did have dinner a bit early, because we wanted to go to a pub quiz later. There's this Irish pub that has a pub quiz every Tuesday or so. My sister has mentioned it to me a few times before and also called me some Tuesday evenings when she was looking for an answer to a question they asked during the quiz.
Anyway, the three of us entered the quiz as one team (apparently, when my sister and her friends compete, they always use the name Coffee Lovers for their team, so it was also the name this time, even though I really don't like coffee ) and there were about 25 teams (some of up to eight people or so). After a few rounds it became clear that we wouldn't end first, so no bottle of whisky for us (or as it turned out to be for that night, vodka). After all the rounds (including a quite hard musical round where you'd to guess artist and title from musical fragments; one of the fragments was Miss Sarajevo ) we ended on the 11th place. Oh well... at least it was fun. And the Kilkenny tasted good.

After the pub quiz my sister went home, as she had to get up early today. Her friend and I went to another bar to have a few more drinks, meet friends and have good conversations.
In all, it was a very fun night.
