The art of being lazy

As a welcome diversion from my normal way of spending an evening, I'm doing absolutely nothing tonight. Watched Sex and the City, Friends, CSI.... generally being a lazy bastard with a huge bowl of popcorn and loads of ice tea. Normally I'm not really into spending an evening alone, but tonight, I kinda like it.

Well... Joey's on, so I haveto go back to my couch :-)

End of season

Yesterday, Dirk, David, Anneke en me went to De Efteling, the largest theme park of the Netherlands, every bit on a par with Disneyland. We had a fantastic sunny day, with not much of any lines. I almost threw over in De Halve Maen, which is a huge ship that rocks back and forth. Not such a good idea for me...

Theme park season is now over, unfortunately. I wish the parks would stay open during the winter, but Holland they don't. Now I have to go to theme park rehab haha.

Fortunately though, the video for Hung Up has been released and is being played over and over again, so that's something to keep me busy. Also, next thursday it's MTV European Music Awards day! Can't wait!

Disco fever

On november 3th, the annual MTV European Music Awards will take place in the Atlantic Arena Lisbon (yes, the stadium where the final Re-Invention show took place). Madonna will open the show, entering in an enormous disco glitterball decending from the ceiling. It's gonna be a huge party, and MTV has issued a sweepstake to win tickets AND a meet and greet. Needless to say, I'm entering like hell, in a desperate attempt to win tickets. 800 entries and counting....

Had a great evening after a particularly hard day at work. Well, not really a hard day, but a long day nevertheless! Anyway, after work, I went for a drink with one of my best friends,Anneke. After that, we went out for a dinner and went to the movies.

We saw Crash, starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Phillipe, which I can recommend to all! We were actually planning on seeing Bewitched, but it turned out thuesday was the only day of the week that it didn't play in Groningen. Bummer! Not too bad though, cause Crash was a good movie that I would probably have never seen if it weren't for a lack of other desirable movies.

Have to go to sleep now... another day of working is lying just around the corner.

Thank you, Goodnight!

What we did last weekend

Had a good weekend! Went to Walibi World for the 7865875432d time this year. My cell phone got launched out of one of the cars from Goliath, a 46 meter tall megacoaster and actually survived it. Thumbs up for Korean products (it's a Samsung). Aside from that, it was a very nice day.

After my visit to Walibi I went to my parent's house in Leeuwarden, and had a good time there. Sunday evening I went to see my ex-boyfriend, who lives in Leeuwarden.

Oh and did I forget to mention I quit my fraternity? And now it seems like I'm being replaced by my ex-boyfriend (not the one that lives in Leeuwarden). Hm...oh well... :-)

The past two days I was free from work, which was a lot of fun. Bought a new winter coat and went partying. Today I was bartending at my former students club, but I was totally hung-over, so it wasn't a great experience hehe. Still, I managed to play Hung Up over ten times, so I did my part in promoting the single!

Tomorrow is friday, and I have to go back to work for a day. Well, work isn't exactly the right word. I'm having a training day with a couple of co-workers, so I'm looking forward to that!

Then saturday it's off to Walibi World again, because this is the last week the park is open this season. Looking forward to that big time!

Madonna madness has started and I'm loving it! Contests to win tickets to the MTV European Music Awards, radio airplay that's going beserk, the new documentury 'I'm Going To Tell You A Secret' that's coming up next week.... it's going to be an exciting month, and the album hasn't even been released yet.

I am sooooo hoping to win tickets for the EMA's. There's even a contest to win tickets AND a meet and greet with the lady herself. I'd like to think I deserve to win those tickets, being a fan for 22 years now.

Besides that, Madonna has talked about the tour this week, really hope that's coming through! Finally: the video for Hung Up (what I've seen of it) is absolutely smashing! It has been filmed at this huge entertainment center near Piccadilly Circus (in London). I was there just two months ago, so it's awesome to see that site in a Madonna video.

Anyway, back to work and stop raving...

I'm hung up... I'm hung up on you

I guess I was one of the few people on this planet who actually waited for the official premiere of Hung Up, Madonna's new single. Practically everyone I know downloaded it illegally, but I waited patiently, and it paid off!
Today the single had its first airplay on Dutch radio stations, and I have to say it's absolutely brilliant! Smashing beat, great Abba sample, perfect! This is gonna be a huge hit, that's for sure!

What else happened this week? Well, I had a great weekend of partying ans swimming. Basically that's what I do every weekend, but I just can't seem to get enough of it. Swimming is a lot more fun now that I've got myself a tattoo. People are actually staring at it, which is something I like a lot hehe.

Next wednesday and thursday I'm taking days off from work, so that I can go and visit my parents. Looking forward to that! Furthermore, I'm trying to win tickets to see Madonna's promo-tour at G-A-Y, a great danceclub in London. Keeping fingers crossed!

Don't stop till you've had enough

What a weekend it was... Started on thursday, since I had two days off from work. So thursday afternoon I went barkeeping, which was nice. That evening I went partying myself and stayed up way too late.

But never mind, cause friday was another day off. Went shopping and had some friends over for the evening. Then saturday there was a record fair in my hometown, so I bought two new Madonna bootlegs. After that, I went for a drink with David, Dirk and Anneke. That evening we went out clubbing and stayed up for way way way too long hehehe.

Sunday I had to to something more healthy, which was swimming. After that, I was basically exhausted, so I spend the evening on the couch.

Good weekend! Hope it's gonna be a good week as well!

Into the groove

Had a wonderful weekend! After I got my tattoo done on friday afternoon, I went and had a drink with a couple of friends. That evening I went to a housewarming party and early to bed.

Saturday I went shopping, bought a really cool pair of Hugo Boss shoes... loving them! In the evening I went to a birthday party and then clubbing. As usually we stayed way too long, so I went to bed somewhere around 8 AM. On sunday I visited my father in the hospital and then went to my mother's house to eat there and stay over.

Today obviosuly I had to work, but it's going to be a particular short week, since I'm taking both thursday and friday off. I've got three weeks of vacation to use, but I don't know when, so I'll just split it up or something.

Anyway, a happy weekend!
