vrijdag 28 mei 2004

Went to Six Flags today. It was fun, but three is a bad number for amusement parks - Mark and Ann-Christin were of course paired up almost the whole day - sitting next to each other in roller coasters, sharing food, kissing - and so I was the third wheel. I didn't feel awkward or anything - they are both very nice and made sure I felt included - but I did wish Martin were there too. He SMSed me all day, but it wasn't the same.

Anyway, there's not a lot to tell. Roller coasters, ice cream, and buses and trains. Oh, but Mom - I have to confess something here. I'm really upset about it and you'll probably be the same way... I lost the necklace you gave me for graduation. :( When Martin and I went to the sauna/spa-type place last week, we had facial treatments, and I was told to take it off. So I did, and I handed it to the woman, and then afterwards I totally forgot about it. The woman didn't say anything, and I ordinarily never take it off, so it never occurred to me to ask for it back. The next day, I realized it was gone, so we called, and they said that it hadn't been turned in and that it had probably been placed in the pocket of my bathrobe while I was on the table, in which case it had gone out with the wash. They claimed that the laundromat always checks the pockets, so we gave them Martin's number, but they haven't called. So today, since I was in Harderwijk anyway, I went by to ask about it. The woman behind the desk was very nice - checked in three different places and let me look through a box of jewelry that had been left behind (there was a lot) - but it wasn't there and she said that if it hadn't surfaced by now, it wasn't likely to, and I had to agree. That SUCKS. Martin says he'd like to buy me a new one, and that's very sweet, but it won't be THAT one... I hope some miracle happens and they find it...

Anyway, I'm going to watch the rest of A Knight's Tale now.
