dinsdag 1 juni 2004

I can send mail through the router! From both accounts! When did that happen? And what has changed?? Oh well, so long as it stays that way :) (knock on wood...)

We had a 'city walk' this morning instead of an actual seminar - our teacher took us through Utrecht and we saw all these historical things (mostly churches). We were all pretty bored, but it was better than normal class. Ann-Christin and I had coffee afterwards and then I went to the supermarket and came home, but now I have to go back to class (yes, 16.30... weird time, I know).

And tomorrow I'm going to see Harry Potter!!! I added a fourth ticket to the reservation, so it's now me, Martin, Ann-Christin, and Pip (AC's roommate... short for Phillippa; she's Australian and really cool). Can't believe we got in on the first day! :) Maybe everyone else is going to the Dutch-dubbed version. Bah. I am a strong supporter of the 'everything-is-always-better-in-the-original-language' standpoint. :)

I just sent out a mass mail to all the Dutchies that I want to see one more time... excluding Linde because she's going to Marco, plus we're going to the beach, plus she's (probably) driving me to Schiphol. And 'Stacker' saw that I had 'holes in my schedule' and offered to fill one with a tour of Eindhoven, haha... so it now looks like this:

2 - Wim's last lesson; HARRY POTTER! :)
3 - Martin in Utrecht
4 - class 15-17u
5 - Eindhoven!
7 - class 13-15u (hopefully turn in paper...)
8 - class 11-13u and 16.30-18u... last day of classes! :)
10 - go to Paris!
11 - Paris
12 - Paris
13 - come home from Paris
18 - beach with Linde
21 - Go home!

...Okay, so who wants to claim the rest of the empty spaces??? :)
