DIY Saturday

I went to help Mic with some DIY today. We started off OK.

But when the going got tough, Mic's dad's pre-roman empire drill died on us and we couldn't drill any more holes in the concrete to make a cupboard around his meters. In the end I bought myself a new hammer-drill which I will use in a few months hopefully to remove plaster from my back wall.

Splatter much?

Walking to work in the snow this morning I noticed somebody had used this public toilet and must've splattered a LOT!

My colleague paul is going on vacation for 4 weeks and I'm looking after his plant. My room is now a small forrest.

In the evening I went out with Patricia and Martijn...

... and Remy and Mara. It was a very fun evening!

Patricia and I had ice cream at Haagen-Dazs.

Nantko in hospital again

I wanted to make this starship from an old floppy disk for a long time. Today I took some time to do so. Full report on my creative blog.

My friend Nantko ain't doing well and he's in the hospital again. It's all very sad :-( I went to see him with Mic and Marjolein.

After we visited Nantko we went in to town where Mic and I originally planned to go for dinner a new year's drinks. There's still a bit of light-art hanging in town.

We had dinner at Wagamama.

When I came home I received a Christmas card. It was delivered at the wrong address...

The snow edition

It snowed during the night. There was about 5cm when i left the house this morning.

It's always a bit exciting. Those first 2 minutes anyway ;-)

It was still snowing hard.

In front of Central Station.

On the ferry.

Waiting for the mini-van to take me and colleagues to work.

Some moron thought it was a great idea to ride a bicycle. Not any bicycle a racing bike with tiny thin tyres...

Snowy plains on the way home.

Chimneys, ships and a crane

It was very cold today but the sky was clear so I took my big camera with me to take photos.

Small chimney.

Big chimney.

The Psycho Cowboy is still there. I'm waiting for it to just sink. There's already holes in the damn thing on the other side where it bangs against the concrete block...

Sailing ship.

Old NDSM wharf crane in the morning.

The Metamorphosis

I love finding dog shit in front of my door. Not. Bastard. Prick. F*cking piece of shit dog owner.

Calming down during breakfast ;-) I started reading a book by Kafka: "The Metamorphosis ". Quite catchy (to me).

Actually so catchy that after breakfast I sat on my couch in the sun and finished it :-)

Late arvo I went to Marjolein. I setup the tablet computer I gave her and I fixed her bird feeder. Then she made a delicious dinner. This is the tree in her downstairs neighbour's garden.

On the way home I noticed a fountain at Sloterdijk station. Never seen it before. It's nice!
