Where do I sign up for the ProZ vacation? Aug 17, 2004

Kidding aside. This ProZ vacation sounds like a grand plan. What about a ProZ destressing cruise?

- Networking would be allowed and war stories but the person who tries to translate something from Spanish into English (fill in any other language pair) is heaved overboard.

- Henry, what do you think about this?

_ ProZ organizing destressing cruises like two or three times a year. I know, I am going overboard (pun intended), but hey, I am on a roll.

I see only one difference Aug 17, 2004

One is a dolphin and the other is a calf (the golden calf a la Moses?). Other than this I do not see any other difference. Does it make me stressful? It made me angry at first and then I laughed. The tension went away.

I need vacations Aug 17, 2004

When you start to see cows riding the waves, it's a sure sign that you need vacations.

Who needs holliday ? Aug 17, 2004

Cannot understand where does the problem stand...

These two girls are just beautiful (are'nt they ?), but I thought that political, religious, and sexual matters where definitely prohibited on the ProZZ Forums. Am I mistaking ?

What you are doing during your vacations is a problem of privacy...
