On Friday, I was in the process of pulling out of the parking lot of a gas station in Tarrenz, Austria, when a strangely long black vehicle passed on the road before me. It was longer than a stretch limo, looked more like a stretch SUV though. It carried some sort of advertising lettering, very small, which said something like Paris Hilton blah blah blah tour.
Just a word of advice, really.
The day promised to be rainy and gray, so I decided to take care of cleaning the windows and doing my enormous pile of ironing, whilst watching or listening to something on TV to entertain me.
I had already removed the first set of curtains from the windows to wash them, when I looked at the TV, wondering why there was no signal – my D-Box (Digital Pay TV Receiver) indicated that my card was not inserted properly. I pulled the card out, wiped it off on my t-shirt and reinserted it. Same message.
