Dear Mister Acid Zebra. As you will shortly see validated with the additional karma, I would just like to express my appreciation for your jocular retort by noting that the spontaneous cachinnation forced violently from me was also accompanied by an unrequested smidgen of waste fluids. That is to say, a little bit of wee came out. I'm oddly appreciative (I guess because I can always change my shorts).

Cheers,
Marc

Perhaps there is a market for a MR-branded line of waterproof keyboards and monitors, such as featured here: http://www.ruggedtech.com/

I don't have any suggestions for the, um, leakage, but I guess we could slap a MR sticker on diapers or whatever you call the adult version?

I definitely love the Paris Métro. Try New York's sub once and you know what I mean. As for hotels, The Campanile near Gare du Nord is a really good one. I have stayed there a few times and I will probably will be staying there for our meet-up.

Incontinence pads/pants. (Like British pants, not American pants).
We used to get lots of calls requesting them, even though I work for a bank.
I actually only wandered in here looking for the origins of Hugo & Lefty....

glad to be of service (and yes, "woolly" is probably most apt).

also :
hear ye, hear ye : since all those expressing a preference for a date thus far have done so in favor of the 31, i decree "so be it". narrowing it down will make it easier to organise things. i'll edit the first post to reflect this.
