Crawling crimping scissors

Crawling my way through Dutch..

In a Dutch exam this evening, I confused the word “Crawling” for “Cutting paper with crimped scissors”. I’m not particularly sure why I thought there was a word for cutting paper with crimped scissors, or even if crimped scissors exist.

Should you ever find yourself stumped in a Level 2.2 Dutch exam, always remember that to ‘kruip’ is to crawl.

Stay tuned for a thrilling installment of a Level 2.3 exam (should my other marks be enough to actually get to another level) where I may finally conquer the ability to crimp.

London Virus = Simon Says?

It seems the owner & chief coffee barista of my favourite Gent coffee shop Simon Says is now the naked spokesman for the Brussels to London train Eurostar.

I’ve been a Simon Says devotee since Simon appeased my longing for the delightful Flat White – a deceivingly difficult coffee to find outside of Australia!

Check out Simon from Simon Says pimping the latest promo for Eurostar at, running around the streets of London in the nude – anything for a free ticket on a train..!
