The French

Indians vs The Polish vs The French. That was the pitched battle for my recently refurbished flat. In the end, the French won, due to their quick and good references. It is a couple, both studying for their pHd, PHd, PhD... it's the third one, isn't it?

This is good, because I wanted a nice, respectable, mature couple in this flat, after the fiasco of the Indian students in the other flat who crammed up to thirteen other friends into the place and covered it in smoke and grime. That place is currently undergoing a quick upheaval, hopefully to be finished when I return to Aberdeen.

However, already two people have warned me about the sanitary habits of the French, especially their free and easy approach to urination, so I may have to put up a sign on the bathroom door saying "Le toilette est ici, seulement".

You might want to translate that phrase for any ignorant Americans who happen by... :)

It means, "The toilet is icy, sometimes."

Try also:

"L'odeur est toi, pas les corps dans le grenier. Svp lavage au moins une fois par semaine."

Ju-Hyeon, it has always been my dream to wear a matching pink couple's T-shirt with you...
