Memories of 2005

It;s the last working day of the year, tomorrow we'll be celebrating New Year's Eve. When I look back at this past year, I can only say it has been great! Got a new job, went to London once again, saw great concerts by Kylie, Tori, Garbage and U2 and met some great new people.
The only thing that's missing somewhat is a boyfriend, but to be honest, I don't really care about it.

I used to think that having a boyfriend was a necessity for happiness, but in the end, it turns out not to be true. I'm really happy as it is, and hope to stay that way in 2006!

Happy new year everyone!

Jingle all the way

Had a great Christmas! Spend Christmas Day at my parents', which was very nice, with my brother and his girlfriend, and my sister, brother in law and nephew present as well. Had loads of great food and generally had a great day. In the evening we watched Bridget Jones' Diary on television, and I think it is the perfect Christmas movie. All in all, a great way to spend Christmas Day!

On Boxing Day, which was today, I had dinner with friends, which was also very nice. Played games after dinner and had a great evening as well. Too bad I have to go back to work tomorrow, so I couldn't join them for a night on the town. Oh well, there's bread to win and bills to pay...

Hope everyone had great holidays!

It's Christmas time

Well, almost it is, but it sorta feels like christmas already. The whole city is decorated as some sort of winter wonderland, and I'm having a nice work function this afternoon to celebrate the holidays. Funny, this is the first year I'm actually looking forward to christmas. Normally I like the build-up to it, but the two days themselves are not my favourite of the year (probably because of the absence of a boyfriend that's bugging me this time of the year).

This year, it's different: I'm going to spend Christmas Day at my parents'house, and Boxing Day with a couple of friends, where we all cook one part of the big dinner. Looking forward to that very much!

I wish everyone happy holidays!

Blue sky

So it's been a good week! Problems at work seem to be solved and I'm feeling a lot better about it now. Work problems can really mess you up and even turn your weekend into disaster, but all that's behind me now.
Immediately, this has worked its way into other area's of my life, making me one happy camper again!

Yesterday I bought myself this really cool Tommy Hilfiger sweater and I'm super happy with it. I can be a bit of a child in a chocolate factory about clothes, so as you can imagine this made my day! I'm totally into brands nowadays (which basically means: now I can finally afford them), I know it's basically just stupid, but what the hell...

Anyway, playing the couch potato tonight, so I have to re-install myself in front of the television. Have a good evening everyone!

All I want for Christmas

Long days at work... and it's only tuesday. I don't know, I'm not really into it this week, wish it was Christmas already so that I would have some days off. Or even better: a real vacation. Can you believe the only vacation I had for this entire year was three days in London? I want to go to the beach...

Well whine whine, let me shut up and go back to work.

Cut short

It's sunday again and I'm getting ready to go visit my mum, who is celebrating her birthday today. I should have gone a couple of hours ago, but of course, I over-slept. Fortunately it's not a very long train ride, so I can make it there in just an hour.

Last thursday, as you probbly know, was the premiere showing of Madonna's new tour documentary I'm Going To Tell You A Secret on Dutch tv. I was so hoping to be in it, cause I was interviewed in Paris for it, but unfortunately, they cut me out. :-( Still, it was a very good movie, showing a new, kinder Madonna. The live footage was great as well, although they did cut every song -except for American Life- short. Thank God for bootleg DVDs, and of course there will still be an official release for the final show in Lisbon, but when that's going to happen....

Anyway, I'm off....

Holiday, celebration, come together in every nation

Felt a bit fucked up today. I spent last night at my parent's house and got so totally allergic with the cats, that I didn't manage to get more than 2 hours of sleep. As you can imagine, that's not a good way to start a work week.Still, I managed to get a lot of work done, but I'm pretty exhausted right now.

Tonight two of my friends come over to watch Kylie ShowGirl on my new DVD. Even the straight guys fall over themselves to see Kylie nowadays. As somone once put it, the straight guys want to date her, the gay guys want to be her, haha!

Tomorrow is anotherday of hard work, and then I'm having two days off (seems like I'm only on holiday these days). Friday me and my boss have to visit Hoofddorp (near Amsterdam) to talk to the accountmanagers. Pretty easy week as it looks like now, but things can always change.

Time for a quick dinner now, love to you all!

A night on the town

After spending some time on the couch (mostly watching the amazing new Kylie DVD 'ShowGirl, the Greatest Hits Tour', I'm back in the sadle and ready to go clubbing. Well, in about 3 hours, that is. I'm going to have a drink with my friend Tom, and then off for a night on the town. Looking forward to it very much! Can't get too hung over tomorrow, cause I'm planning on paying my parents a visit, and it would be a bit rude to come over totally wasted.

So, I've been watching the ShowGirl DVD, which is fantastic, since I've actually seen the show. Unfortunately not the one featured on the disc (Earls Court Arena London, while I was at the Ahoy' SportPaleis show in Rotterdam), but still, since the show is the same everyday, it doesn't really matter where it's filmed. I was in row 1 though in Rotterdam, so if they would have filmed it there, you could have probably see me in it.

So anyway, got to go and fix my hair, and then crack open the bottle!
