Albert - rookarme ruimte Jan 6, 2008

Hi, Albert. I have visited Humphrey's website and saw that a "nearly non-smoking area/room" (rookarme ruimte) is available. Just in case of any resolutions, and in advance of the complete ban on smoking as from 1 July next: would it be possible to make a reservation for this room? You would do me (and probably some other Prozians) a great favour! TIA, Inge.

Good for you, Leen, keep it up! And you know the expression
"Where there's a will ..."

Kind regards, Inge

The right direction Jan 6, 2008

On arriving at the Rotterdam station you will exit through a two ended tunnel. Take the right direction, see : http://picasaweb.google.com/a.stufkens/PowwowRotterdam/photo?authkey=CB0gB0aUL6o#5152417295948630418

@Tatiana and Elena Jan 6, 2008

I managed to squeeze in another two reservations for you two.
Please change your attendance from 'maybe' to 'yes'.

I do smoke... Jan 6, 2008

...and haven't made any New Years resolutions with regard to this habit. I don't mind a non-smoking restaurant (I'm not so heavily addicted I can't do without a cigarette for a while), but I'd like to know if there are any persons in this company who are allergic or otherwise bothered by smoking, so I can choose when and where I will be smoking with the least disturbance to the other attendants.
See you on Saturday, I'm looking forward to meeting you all!

I am a smoker, too Jan 6, 2008

Margreet, the two of us can have a smoking break outside every once in a while. No big deal.

@Margreet and Özden Jan 6, 2008

Thanks for your understanding! I do hope the weather will be fine, so that smoking outside won't be too inconvenient!

The smoking issue Jan 6, 2008

It seems my message this afternoon got lost somewhere, but I can't resist getting involved in this issue...

Firstly, I had a very enjoyable PowWow all by myself this weekend in Rotterdam, having got the dates mixed up. My translation skills are substantially better than my ability to read a calendar...

However it was most enjoyable and I intend making the same mistake frequently in future; I discovered parts of Rotterdam that I didn't know existed...

As for smoking, as a fervent non-smoker I am becoming increasingly tolerant to those smokers who only have 25 weeks left before they suffer in the same way that the rest of us have suffered for years.

The responses coming in from the smokers show that we are all intelligent enough to work things out reasonably. Having said that, if anyone lights up next to me in Humphrey's, I may be banned from attending future PowWows, including the ones I have all to myself!

See you Saturday (it is this Saturday, isn't is Albert....?)

To smoke or not to smoke Jan 6, 2008

As Shakespeare said: "A fellow doth save his life and purse if smoking is not a curse."
Humphrey's assured me that their ventilation is very effective.

@Nigel Jan 6, 2008

Hi Nigel! Hilarious, your account of a very personal powwow! I am looking forward to your report (you do know of the possibility to submit a powwow report?)! Thank you also for your "airy" contribution to 'the smoking issue', I am confident everything will work out fine. And if you follow Albert's instructions and directions, I am sure that nothing can go wrong this Saturday! See you then!

Many thanks for your cell phone number, Albert. I'm afraid I'll need it!
In case somebody wants to be VID-ed ( http://www.proz.com/faq/qa ), just prepare and let me know.

to Albert Jan 8, 2008

Dear Albert,

A couple of days ago I got back from 3 weeks holiday. SO I was informed by my wife that we had another dinner invitation. I will attend the day time but I have to skip dinner part. Is it to late to inform you? If ti is indeed so you can count as if I am there and I will pay the dues.

Regards,

Nizam
