I'm getting bored of my LJ name.
My new LJ is cybercider. Please comment here, or in my new LJ, so i can add you as a friend. As a good LJ girl, i only read my friends page. Please don't reply if you don't wanna be a LJ-friend anymore. I promise to you i'll reply some more than i did last month, and i try to keep posting at least every week. But now i feel it's time for a huge early spring cleaning! =)

Dus, als je mijn LJ vriendje wil blijven, reageer hier, of in mijn nieuwe LJ (cybercider).

I had a very nice night! First Chico and I went to Maccie D for dinner (I don't know why i like it that much, in fact it tastes like cardboard burgers with dry plastic-ish 'burgers', and the fries don't even deserve the name 'frie' cause it's like you're eating microwave chips). But still, there's something addicting in their food :S Anyway, we cycled home with pain in our loverly stomachs, but it was soooo romantic ;)
We watched the ordinary Saturday night tv, Vret came over at 11 (fridge was empty, 'cept for a bottle of Olde English, so we had green lemonade and cider). We went to the pub, had a very gezellige evening!!

Negative:
My feeling for money is zero nada noppo. I can't save any money, or at least i'm really bad at it. I don't care about it though. But I need to learn to spend it more wisely. Or save some more. Ah well... Maybe i'm dead tomorrow, so I better enjoy it =)

Happy 2006! I've been away way too long!
Well, cause there's nothing new to tell.. Next week i'm in charge at my work lol, the boss is away to America. It's gonna be one big disaster =) I only work there only for a year now, and there are people working there since 8 years or so, but i'm the one with a degree. So I think, this wednesday, when half of my colleagues (including me) visited the quiz night in the local pub, the disaster is at his biggest ;) On a 'normal' wednesday, half of the lab is hangovered and stinking of alcohol. Mmm, looking forward to it already ;)

suusj is gonna dye my hair tomorrow. She's great =) And I'm a big ass for forgetting her birthday... Sorry!

Hope y'all have a good weekend! Another publess weekend, fucking money problems (I even started smoking tobacco instead of expensive cigs). I hope bf finds a new cool job really soon! But anyway, we've got our own little palace (well, it's not that little lol! we have to talk to eachother using intercom ;) There's parts of this house i've only been 2 or 3 times..), and we've got a fridge full of cider =) Happy weekend =)

ps. I'm very glad the VPRO has started the Little Britain series!

Today, me and noosebrothers took some pictures of the town we live in, Enkhuizen. You have to spend the last day of the year in style ;) (another style than the neighbourhood kids, who are blowing their fingers off with firework bombs)(It sounds like a war zone and it smells like gun powder outside)(and it's only 15:30 pm...)
Besides the weird street names (which we took photos of), I took some really Japanese toulisty holiday pics. They are under the cut for your enjoyment. Or something ;)

Yay! It was an ordinary working day again! Thank Dog!

It snowed last night, the innercity was really slippery this morning and i managed to stay on my bike! Hoera for me! It was freezing cold, it still is. I hope it'll be spring soon!

BF and I had a busy Christmasd weekend. Saturday: The oh so unspecial pubnight. Drank too much with Mark, pissed of my bf (sorry =( ), had a great time with suusj (open houding, benen wijd! Je moet snel eens figuurpannenkoeken komen eten!).
Sunday (the oh so hangover day) BF's father came over to do a Gourmet-Avond with us. We had loads of meat and veggies, so bf and I just gourmeted for the 2nd time in 3 days. My stomach is exploding!
Monday night we had dinner at me mom and dad's. Brother and sister-in-law were there as well, played a game of Carcassonne, and my brother didn't win! Yay! He always wins, so i was supadupaglad to see me sis-in-law win.

Is gourmet a typical Dutch thing btw?

Whoa, i was just searching the web for a childrens tv show no one in Holland seems to know, and which still gives me the creeps. I really hated it. My mom used to work till 5 pm, and when i came out of school, i always visited a friend. She used to LOVE Zoobilee Zoo... I never understood the program, what was so amazing about it? I still don't know. But everytime i think back to when i was a wee Saskia of 7 years old, there's these 2 words popping up in my head: Zoobilee Zoo. My mom asked me a few months ago: was i a bad mom, to work and let you play at friend's houses? No, i don't think so, but i blame her for my trauma, called Zoobilee Zoo ;)

Christmas means nothing to me.. Presents? No way, we celebrate the Dutch Sinterklaas, which is much better than Christmas. Food? Yes please, but I can enjoy good food all year around. Forced family visits, blurgh! Erm, it was all about the birth of Jesus. Well, I don't believe in a God or a Jesus or whatsoever, so Christmas is just a welcome day off (Boxing Day is). For all the Christmas haters: good luck! To all Christmas lovers: Merry Christmas,happy holidays and hope you get loads of presents =)

I'm off to the pub (as usual ;). Nighty!

Subject:I was dreaming of a wet Christmas
Time:8:14 pm.
Mood: energetic.
Last night I dreamt about going to a pub with wakingup_tous, marnix and a few other unknown LJ people, i woke up really tired and semi-drunk. WTF? I didn't even had a beer last night, and it felt like i had a huge hangover...
First there was a bit of karoake in my dream, after that a girl with a massive antenna on her head (so she could use msn everywhere) came into the pub, and then there was a 'guy' with cans of lager and he was shaking them before giving them to us, so the beer sprayed everywhere and we ended up all wet and soaked in beer. But, as the 'guy' told us, that was the quickest way of finishing your pint and a good excuse to get another one. =) Anyway, i had fun last night ;)
I think it was, cause me and Ferg talkes about going to the Barfly =P, and I read Marnix's dreams-entry before i was going to sleep... mmm yesh!

I've got a Christmas Party at my work tomorrow. Humm yeah, getting drunk with colleagues, saying things to your boss you shouldn't.. I think i head home early to do some foodshopping and get drunk in the boozer down the road.

And it reminded me of an article in a newspaper from last year:


The fun-filled office Christmas party was declared an endangered species yesterday
Eight in ten firms have already decided not to hold a staff get-together this year because bosses are afraid of being sued by staff claiming injury or sexual harassment during drunken revels.
And an union-produced guide for those who do decide to take the risk contains a series of warnings guaranteed to put a damper on any such event.
Among its advice is a suggestion to ban mistletoe for fear and encouraging sexual harassment claims and avoid balloons because they can trigger an allergy to latex.
It declares: “Office furniture isn’t designed to be as sturdy as the furniture in your local pub, so dancing on desks could do them and you a lot of harm.”
Likewise, it says: “The boardroom table is meant for weighty documents, not overweight executives.” And for those who intend to follow the traditional festive pursuit of photocopying parts of their anatomy, it warns: “If the copier breaks you’ll be spending Christmas with glass in some painful places"

Time:12:16 am.
Mood: bored.
Some songs that will always remind me of 2005

Good Charlotte - Chronicles of Life & Death The weirdest gig I ever saw. Not because of the band, because of the crowd. Teen girls fainting, screaming, fighting for a piece of towel from the singer. Moshpitting forbidden, says the singer. Don't say such things to me and Wouter! Chaos.
Rammstein - Feuer Frei Wicked gig in Glasgow, thanks to the fireworks, the tiny people in the crowd, and the guy on mushrooms who said he was a busdriver (I'm a busdriver las, next stop buchanaaaaaaaaan)
Goldie Lookin' Chain - Your Missus Is A Nutter One of the best band of Pukkelpop! An amazing crowd, only 4 GLC fans and 25 minutes of Belgium cameras on my boobs.
Franz Ferdinand - Do You Want To The whole gig was brilliant, 'cept for that #$%^#$ girl next to me who sang along very very very loud and very very very out of tune.
LVO - all songs dankjewel edski
Audio Bullys - Shot You Down One of the most addicting songs of 2005
Kaiser Chiefs - OMG This songs reminded me of how good the Lowlands festival iswas, compared to the Belgium Pukkelpop festival
Mediengruppe Telekommander - Trend German Elektro <3
The Explosion - Filthy Insane Though the singer was way too drunk to perform... this is one of my fav songs ever.


Some random pictures of 2005Collapse )

and some random quotes from my 2005 El-Yay:
"We gaan morgen alleen maar KUT-dingen doen. Zoals vieze drankjes drinken, darten en plassen op het urinoir van de mannenwc."
"Maar echt, Mevrouw ten Kate is mijn heldin! Zomaar op straat, in een orkestje inbreken, de microfoon grijpen en je eigen blues gaan zingen. Hulde! Mevrouw ten Kate, voorbeeld voor menig vrouw!"
"Lunch break was great! We grabbed some plastic bags and went for a good old game of Westfries Dijkglijden"
"The Bingo Saturdaynight was awsome! Some grannies really can be prannies, jealous like fuck for other old people winning the cheap bottle of wine AND 3 garden tourches AND a dozen eggs AND the Begonia."
"Aw fuck im kinda drunkish, but i'm so glad Ceesie & Hayo arent dead!!"
"Today a sheep of the dike was kidnapped! Firstly there a narrow man from a car, who a narrow gesture made to the sheep, stepped, so that all sheep pardoes the other side ran on." (you gotta love babelfish!)
"i'm 23 and i never ever drunk tequilla before.. HORROR! it tastes like hairspray =S"
"1st deepening: entry with staircase rise; small chamberchamber chamber, ample sleep chamber(...)3rd deepening: Overflowing overloop" (you gotta love babelfish!)
"I'm feeling like a Nico swinkels."

Natuurlijk over mijn belabbelde filmkennis, dat ik niet wist hoe Darth Vader ademde en dat ik op een foto schijn te lijken op Kate Winslet op de poster van die ene film met iets met spotless erin. Dat Ed wereldberoemd is (was?) met zijn eigen radioprogramma nine-eleven (brand die cd voor me!) en dat ik om 2 uur naar huis zou gaan, maar dat ed heel spontaan bier ging halen (en later op mijn rekening) en dat ik pas om half 4 naar huis ging. Dat gerben ineens ging rellen, maar dat er geen bloed te zien was (jammer). Dat ed zou omvallen als hij nog een keer zou lachen, en dat het maar goed was dat we snel een barkruk veroverenden (ik weet niet of ik dit nou goed schrijf), want enkele seconden later kwam hij met de *portemonnee op het bureau* opmerking en als hij niet op een barkruk zou hebben gezeten, lag hij nu nog steeds op de grond in de Slof.
-Ohja, dat hij natuurlijk die ene jongen was die op een been in de kroeg stond! (deze ga je nog een heel jaar lang horen jongen!)
-dat ik heel ziek was geworden na zijn sirene van 2 weken geleden, maar dat ik erg kon lachen om het feit dat Georgio patat van 4 uur 's middags nog om half 6 's nachts in je maag zit
-En en en nou weet ik het alweer niet meer. Volgens mij ging het echt nergens over Ed... Wat moest ik me nou nog meer herinneren?
-en natuurlijk post ik dit in mijn eulhjeeu!

sorry..

It's weekend. Yay for Hertog Jan on a friday night!
I had the grossest evening meal ever! The Hema rookworsten are really ok, but DON'T try the Snert. Hema Snert Sucks! It tasted like aardappelpuree met een smaakje. Een chemisch smaakje :$ YEULGH!

Tomorrow i gonna visit my Gran, she's really sick. I hopes she lives to see 2006, but i doubt it :( My other gran died about 2 years ago, and i didn't really cared about here (yeah, i was kinda sad), but this Gran is special to me. Very special... :( I don't want her to pass away. I love her. I still got a postcard she and my granpa wrote in the hospital, a day before grandpa died. Gran was a housemum-Gran, always waiting with a cup of tea and lots of cakes. Grandpa was the funny guy, he always made me laugh. He was a great cartoonist and he had a 'dirty' kind of humor, i just started to understand his jokes while i was older and he already died.
I'm gonna hug my Gran tomorrow. I don't want it to be the last time. It probably is :(

Subject:Dream
Time:6:35 pm.
Mood: tired, but happy.
-sleep-

My dream started with the sound of an air alarm. Chico and i went upstairs to the living room to turn on the tv. It showed us breaking news, on every channel. A big tank, filled with gas, exploded in Nijmegen. It was gas they used in India as a drug, it made people laugh and feel happy, but at the same time the gas was really dangerous. Lots of people in India died of it. And now, the big cloud of gas was spreading all over western Europe. We were advised NOT to go out on the streets, cause it was dangerous. We would get killed. My first thought (probably i picked this thing up from Shaun of the Dead) was: let's go to the pub! Run to the pub, it's only a minute away from our house. 'Cause we had no food in the fridge, we would die of hunger. We stayed indoors for a while, panicking. Suddenly a police car arrived, they were gonna evacuate us. We ran downstairs, the next moment our house was on fire. I ran back in, trying to rescue our rats. I managed. I ran downstairs again, to the police car. There were dead people everywhere, in every street there were hundreds of dead bodies. In every street, there were tanks filled with the same gas. People tried to remove them, but the problem only got worse. They all exploded. We drove to dunnowhere, and they told us we had to move to a foreign country. I wanted to go to Scotland, we'll be save there. Next thing i remember is standing on a beach on Arran, the police car was waiting on the road. We wouldn't be safe in Scotland too. I almost suffocated by the gas. So, we had to take a plane to the US. Due to the damage the gas had caused, we couldn't return to Europe for 40 years. We got 200 euros, to buy a house in the US. We arrived in the US, with only 200 euros. There was a big riot going on. All people who were evacuated, got 200 euros, but Condoleeza Rice got 300! (i really don't know why Condoleeza was evacuated, she lives in the US :S). So Condoleeza had money for a fancy Greek column in her living room. We only had money for a concrete column.

-alarm clock buzzes-

There was a time i woke up, and exactly remembered 4 or 5 dreams from last night. Now, sometimes there is a freaky dream i remember. I can't dream 'ordinary' dreams, they're always freaking me out. I always wake up like it really happened, i always expect to turn on the tv next morning and see my dream on CNN. But (luckily) it's all fiction.

_

This morning I kissed my sleeping boyfriend goodbye, cycled to work, looked out on the IJsselmeer (¿IJssel Lake) and a cloudy sunset, Franz Ferdinand - Eleanor Put Your Boots On on my iPod, cold wind blew through my hair. Mmmm, it felt so perfect!

I got some wonderfull birthday presents at my work! A wooden shelter and some snacks for the educated rodents. They sure love it!
BF Chico is busy flying from Lelystad Airport tonight. He loves his flight simulator game (it is a really cool game). He also crashed into the Eiffel Tower and flew under the bridges of London.
I watched Dr. Phil tonight. Terrible! (pronounce 'Terrible' like a frenchman please! Cause it's that terrible!). I rather watch Tell Sell commercials or Call TV. Speaking of Tell Sell, does anyone knows what happened to Mike "it's amazing, Mike" TellSell? Chico just told me he's dead, nut no no no no no! NOT MIKE!

hmmm I'm bored, i have to translate some parts of the history of Gigha for my website, but i don't feel like it... So i just won't do it tonight, maybe tomorrow, or the day after tommorow, or next weekend. Or never. Ah well...
So, instead of doing a bit of webwork, I:

- filled in stupid questionaries (see below)
- saw the last part of Christiane F
- booked the ferry to Newcastle
- helped my mom with her pc problems on msn
- had to kiss noosebrothers from time to time
- cooked a wonderfull evening meal (boerenkoolstamppot met hema rookworst)
- washed some clothes
- hugged the 5 rodents
- had a nice brunch with my loving bf (sandwich pret!)
- downloaded some Kraftwerk songs (thanks for the inspiration marnix)
- watched The Weakest Link
- smoked less ciggies than yesterday (i'm a good girl, i'm gonna quit tomorrow, or the day after tommorow, or next weekend. Or never. Ah well...)
- uploaded a very nice picture of marnix in his lovely red sweater
- got a late happy birthday card from my Gran
- decided we eat pizza tomorrow
- had to listen to lots of fireworks (our little neighbourhood neds are allready blowing their fingers off with illegal Belgium stuff)

Weet iemand wie er onder de trein lag bij Hoogkarspel/Grootebroek dit weekend?
Someone committed suicide last Saturday, jumping in front of a train is something most people will not survive... So our train didn't got any further than 2 stations down the road (track?), we had to wait almost an hour for a bus to get us to the next station. Well, nevermind... I hated some people over there for moaning about "they would never get somewhere in time" (well, if you have an appointment or whatever and you should be there in time, don't take the very last train). Someone just DIED. And i so hope it is not that one girl i think it is.. I'm really afraid and scared :S


***

From my bf noosebrothers:

just want to share something with you,
we have got our new rats,
3 of m. and boy is there a change.
Errin and Eilidh are totally stunned and the little white rat called Dangerous Beans is trying very hard to be their friend... so far (after being kicked off the platforms many times) she has succeeded (in the first two hours) in doing every "scary" thing the big rats only managed to do after two weeks. she is our heroine. (for everyone who is not english, no not the drug).
The two halfsisters of our first rats are really like them... they lounge about and don't do anything much.. just like errin and eilidh when they first arrived.
but they are just to cute to not look at. you just want to hold those little suckers but the best thing is to just let them explore.

and so as to show you what i mean,
The little rascals, compared to the fat rat Eilidh

You Are 18 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.


Right, today is my birthday and i'm 24 years old now. And yeah, it still feels like i'm 18 =)

Presents i got today:
- a wonderful headache + morning sickness (though i'm not pregnant, i threw up this morning)
- 2 text msgs from edski and suusj. Thank you =)
- a jobless boyfriend.. his ex-boss is a jerk and deserves to be shot. Now!

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In January x_sundaysbest_x and I robbed a bank (-50 points). Last Saturday I gave xxplay_tragicxx a Dutch Oven (-10 points). Last Thursday I put gum in likeneontubing's hair (-12 points). Last Tuesday I broke abdoesjaparov's X-Box (-12 points). Last Wednesday I ruled Iran as a kind and benevolent dictator (700 points).

Overall, I've been nice (616 points). For Christmas I deserve a red Radio-Flyer wagon!

Sincerely,
tekno_ass

Write your letter to Santa! Enter your LJ username:


grmbl. I wanted to have a proper spank ;) Wanna switch presents, ptfc4life?

At least i collected my Sinterklaas presents from my boss yesterday. As good working class people of a West-Frisian company (one of the last seed companies in this area that is not been bought by American multinationals), we all got a Kroeb Paardenworst and, of course, a banketletter.

Tonight Chico and I are going quiznighting again! Last week we finished last, tonight we'll head for the poedelprijs again! There was a tricky (lame?) question last week about Strontian in Scotland, what made us want to visit it in June. Just to have been there (specially a periodic table of elements loving girl like me!).
And oh my, i'm already planning our 2006 holiday... which seemed to be necessary, cause a good bunch of B&B's is already booked full for next summer :S And the boat to Newcastle is much cheaper when we book in december. Yesh! No airplanes anymore, now it's time for catastrophic sinkings of ferries, the chav-survival in Newcastle (I've never been in England...), our first car drive on the Scottish mainland and the first time since 3 years we don't stay in Glasgow (we'll probably be there for just a few hours to catch a train or something; a good walk from Central to Queen Street, avoiding "geesafaggers" and teenagers pushing prams with at least 'free bairns' in it (or a combination of both)).

Mood: hungry.
It has been a long time since i updated this LJ... There's nothing much happening, my life's boring but i start to like it that way. It also is far too busy, though i'm not doing that much. When i was at school (i only was at school during practical lessons, the rest of the time me and my best friend had the good habbit of making homework in the Irish Pub with the lovely bartender), i was much busier with all things. Now i have a steady 8-5 job, but it feels like i'm so tired every evening. Plus: it's winter, it's cold and dark and blurgh! I can't wait till spring!

*Last night we went to a local HuiG gig, they played with a band called Lovebite. The band was really ok, the music was kinda ok and the bassplayer was not ok with his shirt off. And so, we started singing "T-Shirts aan" instead of "Kinderen Slaan" when HuiG went onstage.
*The night before we celebrated Sinterklaas, what was nothing more than sitting on the couch, drinking lager with my parents and brother + girlfriend, doing the good old "veel pret met de gourmet". Chico and me got some money and a bottle of whisky.
*It seems I have a long-time cold, it's been since about 3 weeks that i'm coughing up neon green thingies, and my nose is full of them too. Kinda shite, i can't even hug my rats, cause they can get infected too :(

Friday is my birthday, so if anyone of you would like to come around, you're always welcome =)

Time:11:02 am.
Mood: lazy.
Yesterday i had a very 'gezellige' family meeting with all the women (nieces, aunties) of my dad's family. We had some cooking lessons by an unknown masterchef. He was cool! The rest of the family not.

I really felt that pressure on me again. I've failed (in their opinion), my education level isn't high enough for the posh cunts. "How's you job, Saskia" they asked me. "yeah, pretty good" I answered "I have a promotion coming up and it's going really well" (and then you almost hear them thinking: a promotion? a good job? is it possible with that LOW VERY LOW education? (my education level isn't that low, but if it isn't Uni you're a dumb nitwit).
And then there's all the talking about my nieces "oh so wonderfull" babies. They're a bunch of dipershiting screamers. They all become spoiled brats.. (mm i don't like kids ;)
Oh, and ofcourse the thing about my looks. My mom told me a few months ago that my aunt was so worried about 'me' (read: the good name of the family), cos i had all those piercings and flaming red dyed hair and freaky clothes. And she actually wanted to phone me a few years ago, to warn me I should never get a job, i was ruining my future by such behaviour and so on. I'm glad she never did.

Anyway, the food was ok. Chicken salad as a starter. The main course was tenderloin (?) steak filled with minced beef, onions, apple, and pepper; fried potatoes; and an good old green salad. Desert was a strawberry gelly cake with cream and chocolate *mmm*


Then quick quick quick, drink the horrible day away in the pub. Which was quite boring in the beginning, spoke to lots of people i never see anymore and who came over to Enkhuizen for the weekend. And then, at 1:59 am, i wanted to go home, but edski came in and we sat for an hour an a half (in West-Friesland we call that: Nag ientje met de jas an).
Anyways, it was fun. noosebrothers has been asked to play drums in a pretty neat band, and now he's jsut out of bed with an enormous hangover. Gonna make him a cuppa ;)

Time:9:38 pm.

I'm sorry for overposting today.

But this is something funny, for all the weegies in da house!

There was this program on Belgium tv the other minute, starring writer Irvine Welsh on Glasgow Necropolis. And of course, there was this little shot of Glasgow, flats, a fat lady and lots of grave slabs (duh, it was filmed on the Necropolis). The funny part was, i just said to my bf: where's the neds then? And there they were: 2 trackies with bright white trainers climbing grave stones. Lovely! A proper filmshot of Glasgow isn't complete without them! :P

To quote the Belgium co-host:
"And those bloody, bingedrinking, swearing, cursing Brits acting like pigs and spoiling your holiday on Ibiza, well, they learned it in Blackpool"
