it's quite something to be proud of, and it's not like he's flaunting it in a heinous manner, so don't you go talking about arrogance, you don't even know him

Well, sorry to disappoint, but right now I'm in too good a mood to let your attitude affect me.

However, just wanted to point out that you know nothing about me, and if I wanted to "show off in a completely non-subtle matter", then I would "show off" much more than just what I "showed off" in my prior post.

Oh, and by the way,

arrogance

n : overbearing pride evidenced by a superior manner toward inferiors [syn: haughtiness, hauteur, highhandedness, lordliness]

Please demonstrate using the qualities of my above post where I exhibited "typical Oxbridge arrogance".

Thank you also for not only slandering the entire Oxbridge populace with your accusations of "arrogance", but for also including me in your generalisation. *looks at definition above* Oh wait, that reminds me of something.  ::)

Well, off to celebrate. Have a good one!

Be proud, very proud. I listened to your Schubert Impromptus, and I really enjoyed them. (and believe me, I can be very picky) I also read that you performed the Mendelssohn G minor Concerto at the Royal Albert Hall, and I'm in LOOOOOVE with that piece.   ;D
Just wanted to let you know you're appreciated.

dear waldszenen,

is hawaiian a nationality?  you look like a good match for bouter-boogie somehow.  and, she thinks you're good looking.  is the is a first?  some actually good looking, non-psycho, matches.  (beomes a match maker)

ok.  i'm terrible at guesses of this sort, but japanese, caucasian, hawaiian, and hmmm.  you know i once knew a lady who was a model and she had japanese/hawaiian/cauc.  and she was really beautiful.  the full lips and all.  i'm stuck on the last one - so i'll just take a wild guess and say russian.  does that sound crazy enough?

Nah I'm actually mainly Asian with the rest split up amongst those other three countries - I really don't know how much it works because I've got no family records, only what my parents tell me. I think like one of my great grandparents was German, another was French and my grandpa was Russian.

chopiniabin,  i think you're tibetian.  am i right? 

can't believe i got the russian part on waldzenen.  i thought it was a silly guess, since the chinese part does come out stronger.  in any case, you and bouter boogie have a little resemblance going.

bouter boogie, didn't you say that you were belgian and something else (oh, what was it?)  am terrible at remembering - and don't feel like searchinga ll over.  jsut tell us, please! 

thalbergmad, you are too old for bouter boogie and we don't want her to end up like your last girlfriend.  but, i think you are meant for a surprise relationship (no crystal ball, just conjuring).  my husband was jumped at 40.  he was like beethoven, always admiring women from a distance.  i challenged him on this - even though at times he would be forward -  he also was scared a woman would do him in.  when i came to visit him - i just decided i wanted to marry him.  why do i see this happenning to you?  because you are not actively going out and looking for trouble.  so, trouble will have to come to you.  keep on hiking and stuff.  she's probably waiting at the top of a mountain or on a bike trail somewhere.  not on piano forum, ok.  you don't want introvert -introvert (or did you say you were extrovert?)  you need someone who will pick you up by the ears and let you know who's boss. (despite your complaints about your last girlfriend never doing what you wanted).
