(And yes, I have one of those amazing Dutch surnames that no non-Dutch person can spell or pronounce.)
Happy Sammiklaus, Wordbird
I only now got the chance to read the complete thread of yesterday's SotD

Oh please, Chaya, can you always call me that? So sweet
But I think you made the right decision: Boston is much, much nicer than Groningen.
And....we will scrape the rust off you in no time
Geniet van deze dag, lieverd (enjoy this day, dear)
