(unlikely dreams)

maandag 24 mei 2004

Scott is gone and so I have captured the wall connection, but I don't know when he'll be back, so here are some short updates:

Martin booked his ticket to America and will be there from August 7th until 28th.

I have discovered the yummiest cheese ever - cheddar with red things in it which taste suspiciously like pimientos.

Also, I have a new, very soft, white teddy bear who needs a name.

After a wait of almost an hour and a half, I have booked my ticket to Paris!

Martin and I are going to the Efteling (like Magic Kingdom with roller coasters) on Thursday.

I have permission to use my essay topic of Middle Dutch for an essay on the culture Middle Ages.

I also have permission to write my 3500-word paper for Children's Lit in English!

I'm going to the beach with Linde three days before I leave.

This week will be my last week of horseback riding here.

I need something to give Wim as a gift, since next week is probably going to be our last lesson.

Peter probably wants to buy my bed when I leave.

I am in dire straits qua laundry and am about to go remedy that situation, hopefully with a better outcome than last time.


03 days till M and I go to the Efteling
16 days till the Marco Borsato concert!
17 days till I go to Paris
20 days till I come back from Paris
25 days till L and I hit the beach
28 days till I go home!
