Yesterday was the weirdest Queensday I've ever celebrated. I went with a bunch of friends to Amsterdam, to soak up the sun, dance to awful music and drink a bit too much.

While walking around in Amsterdam we suddenly heard the rumour that there had been an assassination attempt on our queen. Nobody believed it. Cause, you know, our queen. It just seemed insane and silly.

But was actually really true.

We slowly started to hear more details, but it all appeared to be not so serious. So we went on, got to the concert, and danced like idiots. (Come on, the return of 2Unlimited. How hilarious is that? Plus, DJ Tiësto, who is about the only dj I like when I'm in the right mood!)

Anyway. Got home. Turned on the telly, and it suddenly wasn't so funny anymore. Those poor people :(

But I still have pics. Just to show how Queensday in Amsterdam is. )

You all know what I'm going to say here, right?

Happy 2009, everyone!

I hope it's filled with good health, love and happiness for everyone *hugs*

I had the best New Years Eve in years, spent with my best friend and her family.

So. I haven't slept properly in days, am seriously tired, have a presentation later today (I know what to say, only my powerpoint isn't read yet it's done!) and two looming deadlines that freak me out.

However, I will have dinner with [livejournal.com profile] ilovesamwise tonight and I will going to a gig of the Rascals with the adorable Miles Kane.

So clearly it all balances out, right?

Tonight I will be seeing Okkervil River. I'm really looking forward to that: I've been wanting to see them for ages!

I'm slowly developing a backlog on everything. I still have to write reviews from the Keane gig and the Elbow gig I went to last Sunday, plus I have to upload pictures from my camera and this should all be done before Monday evening cause then I will be seeing God Sigur Ròs and OH MY GOD I'm SOOOO looking forward to that.

Before the end of this month I have to finish a two papers (one 3,500 words, the other 5,000. Current count 0 for both), read 4 books, make two presentations, write an essay (2/3 pages) and I would like to not get behind on my tv watching off Supernatural and Merlin, cause those I'm the only shows I'm not behind currently. Can't say the same for Heroes, Pushing Daisies, Chuck, Lost!, Sarah Jane Adventures and Little Dorrit. BOOH!

Either way. I'm behind on everything. But I'll be seeing Okkervil River tonight and go on a drink/tv and/or movie watch night with [livejournal.com profile] ilovesamwise tomorrow, so live is good. Remind me of this at the end of the month, yeah?

I will make a post of Squee about Keane and a post about why I love Merlin more than I should and ZOMG Top Gear has started again, and Pushing Daisies is really fun as well and all that. But until I can find the courage to type all that out, I leave you with some pics.

Do look at my new glasses, which I adore. I have another new pair as well, behind the cut.

I spent most of my weekend watching the A-Team, my new obsession, giggling with [livejournal.com profile] ilovesamwise, cursing public transport and drinking vodka. Clearly this is the way to spent your weekend.

God, my love for the A-Team is rabidly taking on dangerous proportions ;)

I probably should use a little more tact at HP-B, shouldn't I? I wonder if I'm now the object of gossip and slander ;)

I just talked to [livejournal.com profile] ilovesamwise on the phone! YES! I haven't spoken to her in months, because she's currently staying in Italy.

HOWEVER, we might get to meet up in Florence in a couple of days! YAAAAAY!!!

Life is just a little more boring when she's not in the same country as I am :(

I had the weirdest dream. I dreamed that snooker players were cycling the Tour de France and Ronnie felt really really hard in one of the corners. I even know why I dreamed it, cause I realized just before I went to sleep that the ending of the World Championship Snooker will probably be when I'm in Florence (well, I'd rather miss snooker than Radiohead to be honest!). At least I don't have to suffer through a final with Murphy then (cause I fear many fears. As much as I dislike him, he's actually really rather good), although I must find a way to stay sort of up to date (cause I'm a geek).

I have been sick the last couple of days and I thought it might had to do with my complete and utter fucked up sleeping schedule from these days. I have this because I barely slept the last 2 months due to piles of uni-work (and it hasn't ended yet. On the 14th I have to finished THREE papers, together 15,000 words! At least I'm more than half way with them at the moment!). So I basically tried to go to sleep before twelve the last couple of days. Flu hasn't stopped, though :(

The good news, however, is that I actually passed an exam I thought I had failed! YES! Not with brilliant marks, but at least that is one thing less to do! So instead of TWO exams I now have to do 'only' ONE. YAY!

Going to visit Anne today, even though I have the flu. Anne is going to leave the Netherlands next week because she's going to work in Italy for 4 months (I might just visit her when I have to be in Florence anyway, I believe it's not hours apart from each other) and considering she's my best friend I'm going to miss her like crazy. So I'll visit today. And I take loads of comedy with me, cause I want to try to convert her to the Mighty Boosh & The IT-Crowd. It already worked for Black Books, so it only seems a logical next step ;)
