The toothbrush

I installed OS X Mavericks again. Last time I did my graphics card died.

My toothbrush has a friend today. I like seeing the extra toothbrush ;-)

After Simone's work we met in town. It was busy because a little man from Chine was visiting. There was a lot of police guarding the palace. I like the palace. It used to be the town hall. Then Napoleon came and made it a house for his sister. somehow after he got his ass kicked our royals got their hands on it...

Simone photographed this weirdo in the street. It was on our way to dinner and a movie. It was a fun night except that I lost my sunglasses :-(

Ehm, today was Friday. And I forgot to take any piccies. All I remember is that I was really, really happy that tomorrow it's Saturday. I also was really, really happy with my 4 o'clock beer.

And the results are...

I exercised tonight. Now I'm tired... I also phoned with my mom coz she's home from the hospital again. And I had lunch with my sweety. At work I didn't get hassled all day long for a change so I managed to actually get shit done which was nice!

The big break

The NDSM area in North Amsterdam. This crane is iconic.

I went to Mic's straight after work. This car, I believe it was a Ferrari, tried to overtake the tram but had to break very hard when we all turned the corner. The car sounded like it really didn't want to break at all...

Tom and Mic playing squash. Tom is a lot better than Mic and I, very challenging, I like :-)

My Mac is back!

Somebody used my hand as a piece of paper yesterday...

In the afternoon I received an email that my iMac was repaired and waiting for me! I took an hour off work to pick it up right away.

And there it is again. I'm well pleased to have it back :-)

The birds of prey / meeting the inlaws

I went to see Simone and her kids this afternoon. Together we went to a bird-show in a nearby town. There were serious birds of prey but also owls (who are birds of prey as well, of course).

The owls have beautiful eyes. Some really bright...

And some very dark.

Some owls are tiny but very cute. This one could be in the game "Angry bird";-)

Then there also was an American Eagle.

And another eagle, can't remember the kind but it was slightly bigger and more powerful.

The Falconer showed the birds in the wrong order. This one being higher in rank was picked second and was therefore a little pissed off. She made that quite clear which was funny.

As big as a door...

Later that day I met Simone's family. Nice people and it was good to finally meet them. Simone made a lovely dinner :-)
