It feels like I’m lacking focus with all these “update galore”‘s, but then again, much to tell (and more not to tell :), so let’s get this show on the road!
Since I came to .nl this time around, I got a quick round of updates — to be expected of course, especially if there’s a wedding (see previous post). I finally got to see Denis’ fancy new hotrod (and yes, it’s a nice car). Visited the IPA dinner+social event on a special invitation — originally I couldn’t make the IPA days due to appointments, but when I apologised the organisation was friendly enough to invite me to partake in the social event. This time, the game (it’s always an adaption of a game) consisted of teams shouting letters and placing the shouted letters in a square in order to make as many long words as possible. Hard game, but we had the coolest word – “ij” was allowed as a typical dutch letter (not to be confused with “y”), so our team made the 5 letter word “ijstijd”! :) And in the end, most other teams hadn’t found a use for the two “ij”‘s, gna gna. Biked back in the middle of the night, thanks to Chris accompanying me — the offer of a bed in Heeze sounded very tempting…
The day after I missed out on the ouwelullenborrel of GEWIS because we at FM had a borrel at the same time – I know, I should plan the FM borrels at different times (yes, I am still the main initiator for these borrels :). By this time, the plans for my return journey had been rearranged again. It seems like every time I come to .nl, there is something rearranging my plans for returning to Lux ;-)
Anyway, afterwards enjoyed a very nice dinner Chez Ania, with the fancy new steamer (which had a broken button, so it was exchanged the next day). Ania had told me there was a surprise planned, turned out to be karaoke. I never mind that, but I always feel a bit of pity for the crowd ;-)
Somewhere along the lines I discovered that Stijn is the proud owner of a Wii nowadays – news that was followed the next day by Nintendo announcing a higher expected profit over 2006. Coincidence? I think not :)
To finish off: just dropped Ania off at Schiphol – nice of the car to hold out for once past Utrecht ;-)
And: I just ran a bit again. The 6-3 schedule (6 mins run, 3 mins walking) seems to be pushing my joints to the edge, but not beyond. And that is really good news! (If you’re me at least :) Anyway, off for a shower, meeting Johan and partying with Tijntje.
Last gamed: WarioWare, Megagame$ — unlocked the damn Pyory game, I consider the game finished now
