The awesome Saturday

I met Mic at my car. He was helping me ditching the LPG tank, a job I've been dreading to do for months because I'm scared of the flammable gas. But man do I wanna get rid of that LPG crap in my car!

But it was a nice, clear and dry day so I felt like it was now or never.

Above I'm letting gas escape in the engine compartment just so that I don't have to do that in the trunk. I feel I'm more in control here... I needed to let it hiss for about 5 minutes.

The same pipeline being disconnected from the tank. No hissing.

Then I had to disconnect the filling pipeline. This, to me, was the scariest part. I put on the gloves just incase I would get freakin' cold liquid LPG on my hands. Safety during this job was VERY high on my priority list...

Funnily enough this turned out to be the easiest part of all. Except that the nut was very tight.

Bye bye tankie!

I was so relieved we managed to get it out. And not just that, really quick as well! And we managed to strip the car from all the LPG-crap up until the engine compartment. Nice!

Then I dropped by my friend Diewertje's place and picked up another plant and this outdoor plant-rack which I like a lot. It's outside now where it belongs ;-)

And Mic, he brought me a bottle of booze, for no reason! He is just the best friend I've ever had! :-)

Because I didn't think I had been busy enough today, I decided to go for a very long walk through town in the evening, walking along the boat-route of the Amsterdam Light Festival.

This is the starting point. A tower of light in the shape of the tower that once was actually there and which was part of the city walls.

I liked this one as well.

This was my favourite piece. Origami tigers.

Projections on the sails of a ship.

A tree of light.

"Foggy lanterns". I liked this. It's original.

"Circle of light".

And a bed on the water. Nice one.

And then I came home and felt totally knackered ;-)

The cider

Around the corner from me, 4 doors down, they are re-doing the foundations of a house. Fascinating work.

I drank the bottle of cider I found on my doorstep a while ago. It was very nice but now I'm getting sleepy ;-)

Dinner with Eefie

I had dinner with Eva. She cheered me up after the shit day I had at work.

PS: Dinner was actually inside, this was when we left ;-)

Israel needs to fuck off

I really don't like how the state of Israel is treating the Palestinians. They are illegally occupying their land and they are not allowed to travel through Israel freely.

I saw balloons on the way to work.


In the evening I went to my car and prepare a few things for the removal of my LPG tank. Having to deal with gas makes me nervous...

I also made this photo to show my new air cleaner. Nice!

I won again! ;-P

I finally won a game of Wordfeud again. It's been ages...

Diewertje gave me some of her plants earlier this week. It's a bit full now but I love it like this. I like plants and this way she doesn't have to throw them away :-)

Today I went back to diewertje's place to help moving some stuff out of her appartment. She needs to move out soon. I'd rather slept in ;-)

And in the evening I had a little party at Tanja's and Patrick's. It was nice to be out a bit but I was knackered when I got home again. This "ball" is called the Fly's eye or something. It's part of the Amsterdam Lights Festival and I saw it on my way home.
