My deepest apologies to everyone, unfortunately I will pull off a no-show in this round.
I am having some serious economic issues these past months.. I have a job at the largest magazine publication company in my country (I live in Greece). I am unpaid from my employee the last 3 months. Sounds irrelevant I know.. the truth is things are really hard for me, austerity measures here have slammed me down real hard.. my wife is pregnant, due next month and preparations for the baby are at 0%.. the same as my income, my bills are due, my cell phones are cut, and i am forced to go to work everyday in fear of losing it. Unemployment rates are near 30%. I need 10 euro of gas just to go to work. I'm sad to say that the H2H is the last thing on my mind, and I barely made it to round 3 chopping till the last minute. I am so sorry, come to think of it, I did have all this in mind when I signed up, but thought I could pull it off. I lack inspiration/time/spirit, my 3 basic ingredients for chopping.. I just hope things will change to the better for me in the future.. hope you forgive me.

Nick

and btw.. Greek people are not lazy.. we are really and I mean REALLY corrupt.. and right now, pre election period, we have no government, total anarchy everywhere. We ordinary people are having a hard time putting up against the elite.

Nick, have you seen what you were up against yet?!

He stepped up his game for you. Too bad about your situation. Could have been the best two images of the round... But totally understandable about what you're going through. Been following Greece in the news. Pretty scary. Can't imagine living it.

Let me know if you want me to ask my daughter to pack you some of my granddaughters last year babystuff, Sliver. I will be happy to send it to you.

Just say what you need and I will see if I can find it for you.
