yeah. being an au pair would be a weird change of pace and change of plans, but it also sounds really, really nice for a little less than a year. the families all sound great and i love kids, and i need to learn french, and i'd have some time to write, and etc. etc. I've got a lot of interest in me out of Geneva because my profile's got my education and career interests, and right now (in the early stages of talking to families) I already feel like I'll have trouble deciding between 2-5 wonderful families. One's offering $600 a month plus french tuition, so I think I'll try and make that my standard unless I hear something better.

the u2.com vid that is now on youtube where he talks about it and then forgets the words is what gave me that impression.

I'm thinking of doing the 12-month working holiday visa in the UK before I get too old for it....

You know what I love? The Tongan rugby team also has a pre-game war dance, and when they play the All Blacks, they do theirs WHILE THE ALL BLACKS DO THE HAKA. It's so fucking intense.

The bad part? I saw Tonga vs New Zealand at the 2003 Rugby World Cup, but thanks to a transportation fuck-up, I got to the venue just as the Haka finished. Still regret that.
Whoa, that sounds sweet (though it's pretty cool seeing the opposition bite their lips and shit their shorts while the haka is going on). Any videos of it on Youtube?

Sucks about you missing it, but don't worry. Around 2001 I arrived at Footy Park where the Eagles were coming out of their bus, and I forgot a texta. So the first time I see any of them up close, I can't even get their autographs.

Oh well, I made up for it later. I'm sure you will too.

i don't know anyone, just in contact with some lovely families via an au pair finding website. it's a really international city which would be fun for networking, meeting interesting men and then of course it's close to other great places.

i am so jealous of anyone with eu citizenship. i tried to get it through the holocaust remittance acts and i would have succeeded if i had a grandfather and not a grandmother who'd come out. at sexist citizenship laws.

I've only listened to Wave of Sorrow about twice. It just doesn't grab me, musically or lyrically...

Oh yeah, that video was frankly embarrassing. I felt bad for the guy just watching it.

if you're there while i'm there we can visit each other! that goes for anyone. i've got a friend who'll be working in london as well who i haven't seen in some years.

i put in my extended interview section of my profile that i'm a u2 nut and if they tour i'll be taking some of my vacation to follow them. just so the families are forewarned.

WHY AREN'T YOUTUBE VIDS WORKING FOR ME??

Wow! That sounds great... I have some friends in the UK who have an au pair, they've had people from France and Poland and all over the place. Sounds like a great way to see a place and get into the culture, as long as you don't mind cleaning and kids and stuff...
