My birthday

Jul. 29th, 2008 01:18 pm
tricster: (bookworm)
So, I had a really good birthday weekend. Saturday was busy, but great. This last weekend was also the Goudse Haven Dagen (The harbour days of Gouda), so there were lots of really pretty sailing ships in the canals. It's a shame we didn't get any pictures, though Pa got some when we walked around on Sunday. I'll try and pester him to get a copy of the pretty sailing ships.

I was pretty spoiled this year, in my opinion. :)
From Mark: Terry Jones' Medieval Lives (book and dvd)
From Mark's Family: Erik the Viking (dvd), Finian's Rainbow (dvd), Shakespeare in Love (dvd), God of War II (ps2 game) and Crusades (book)
From my parents: Gigi (dvd), Wizards (dvd) and Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys (cd)
From my sister, [livejournal.com profile] ariley5997, and my BIL: Batavia's Graveyard: The true story of the mad heretic who led history's bloodiest mutiny (book) and Scurvy: How a Surgeon, a Mariner, and a Gentleman solved the greatest medical mystery of the age of sail (book)

Yes, I am looking forward to reading lots of history stuff. :) I've already started on Terry Jones' Medieval Lives. I don't know which one I'll read after this, they are all so tempting!

Otherwise, I had a fine time with the family, we ate lots of food and enjoyed some very tasty meat. The temporary grills didn't really work (suck) but luckily we had our little electric grill thing, which worked just fine. The cake was delicious, and I think everyone enjoyed just sitting around and chatting for a day. Afterwards, Mark, his parents and I went to the cinema to see Hancock, which was funny and entertaining.

All in all, a very busy but good weekend. I'm just happy that now I don't feel quite so much like I'm melting. It has been so warm recently.

That's right, I'm 23. Another year towards immortality, mwahahahaha. As per usual, Mark and I stayed awake until it was about midnight, and then I got to open my presents. :) I got Terry Jones' Medieval Lives (book and DVD) from Mark and from my parents (the package and their card arrived in time) I got a two cd collection called Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys, as well as the DVD of Gigi (musical) and Wizards (1970s sci-fi animation).

Today we also picked up my cake (looks delicious) and a buttload of meat for tomorrow. We have a whole box of hamburgers!

Anyway, I have a few last chores to do. Yeah, chores on my birthday, but that will make tomorrow all the better. :)

Woo, this has been a pretty nice birthday so far!

CAKE

tricster: (*giggle*)

I have ordered my birthday cake thingy. It has strawberries. I love strawberries. :) Also, I have obtained something called 'Handy BBQ', which is a temporary, easy bbq thing that can just be tossed. As I still don't have an actual grill, this will do for now. :)

Uhm, otherwise. yeah. I'm almost 23, woo.

Uhm, otherwise. yeah. I'm almost 23, woo.

So, I've been trying to think how to schedule my birthday. On the 26th, my actual date of birth, Mark and I will hang out together and be cute and couply. :) I'm not entirely sure what we're going to do, if we're going to go out to dinner or what.

On the 27th, I've invited Mark's family over. I'm thinking of having them come over early afternoon (around 13:00), offer things for tea (and possibly cake from a local bakery). If the weather is nice.. we may eat outside. I'm hoping to pick up those 'instant' barbeques that are on offer and grilling up some foods. Otherwise, I don't know. Our chairs keep breaking (stupid wheels) so we can't really have everyone sit inside easily at the dinner table. Though I suppose we could pull the outside chairs inside.. Eh, otherwise we  may eat out. If we eat out, I'm pretty sure E and T won't be able to join us (what with A, their daughter, being so young). There is also the possibility of afterwards going out with R and T to see a movie. However, I don't know which movie.

Playing in Gouda that I would like to see:
Sunday
21:00 The Dark Knight (generally too late, since it's a longer movie)
18:45 De brief voor de koning (might be a little too early, would rush dinner, at the very least..)

Otherwise, we can head over to Alphen aan den Rijn:
Sunday
Cinema Castellum
De brief voor de koning 14:00; 16:30 and 19:00
The Dark Knight 16:00 and 20:00
or
Euro Cinema
Hancock 13:45; 16:15; 18:45 and 21:15

Looking at it, going to Alphen a/d Rijn will probably give us the best time.. it's a short drive and the shows are at more reasonable times. But I don't know, I'll send an e-mail out to the folks asking for their opinion, and give them the suggested schedule. Hopefully it will work better for E and T. :)

*I totally just use initials for Mark's family because, dude, I don't think they'd like their names just randomly given out on the internet. So, yes, lots of random letters. :)

Saturday I had a blast at [livejournal.com profile] ankie's birthday party. I met some really nice and interesting people. I'm totally looking forward to future possibilities of hanging out with them. (Shout out to [livejournal.com profile] kees_s!)

Sunday, E came home at last! T was thrilled, as was the whole family. Afterwards, most of us went out to McDonalds. It's fun hanging out with the family.

Ugh, this whole weekend I've been eating junk food. At least [livejournal.com profile] ankie cooked up some tasty (and healthier than burgers) soup. Tonight we're ordering pizza in, because Mark had to wait out some traffic jams. (He should be home about 21:15). Pizza and garlic bread.

Next Sunday, delayed birthday parties for me and Mum. I won't be going to dinner with the family Sunday, as I'll be heading off to Utrecht to meet up with W for food and Doe Maar!

Going out tonight to browse through the centre, eat some Greek food and then watch a movie (Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer). It should be pretty fun. :)

I'm once again wearing a skirt! I figured since I own the damn things, I should wear them once in awhile. I think I've only worn this skirt out once. Anyway, blue jean skirt, blue tank top with a dark blue zip up hoodie over it. Pretty darn comfy. Goes well with my shorter boots. I'm wearing more skirts recently, kind of in the hopes that Mark will wear his kilt to Castlefest. (He refuses to wear it otherwise, which is a damn shame because he has hot legs).

I'm also all clean, so I smell very much like candy and coconut! (Thanks, Lush!) I'm already considering what I'll buy the next time I go to Lush. (Honey, I washed the kids, for sure, but also maybe some bath stuff, since I'll probably have moved in, or be almost moved into the house in Gouda by that point).

Anyway, sounds like Mark is done! Bye for now!

So, this past week I have been ill, but luckily, I'm feeling much better now. Thursday, Mark dragged me out to get groceries, which meant burritos! But more importantly this week, I got some problems sorted out (with Mark's help) with the University. They had wanted a new colloquium doctum for Celtic languages and cultures, and we were afraid that I would have to jump through a million hoops again to get it. Luckily, one call to the student service desk later (and a return call) and I got a hassle free colloquium doctum, because someone actually paused and thought 'Hey! We let her into this other study in the same department, so we should have no problem letting her into this study.'

And hell probably froze over for a moment or so.

At any rate, I just have to send in one of the two copies they sent me. (They sent me the original, and two copies, so I don't even have to make my own copies, woo!) Then it should be reasonably okay. However, I did get the negative binding study advice for history, as I figured. Whatever, I have already reconciled with that.

Today, my Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows book arrived at around 11 or so. (I think Mark was way more anxious about it arriving than I was. We had stayed up really late last night stupidly, and I was just really tired. My main thoughts this morning? 'Mmhmm, book, right, sleep.. sleeeeep') Of course, once I was awake and it had arrived, I very much wanted to read it. I read a few pages, and then Mark forced* me out of the apartment with him to check out cars and take test drives. We stopped at the Opal dealer, and drove around for an hour, we ate lunch, then we went to the Toyota dealer, and drove around for an hour. We stopped by the Skoda dealer to see about making a test drive, but there were various things that didn't go right there, so we just went home. We got home around 15:30 or so, I believe, and I dove into Harry Potter (Mark wanted to read it too, donchaknow). I finished it around 20:30, so about 6 hours in total to read it.

In general, I thought it was a very good book. I don't have a particular favourite book, but this would be high on the list, I think, if I would try to rank them. No, it's not perfect, but what book is?

Anyway, Mark is now reading it and I'm looking forward to tomorrow and hanging out with my friends. (I almost feel sorry for Mark, surrounded by young, attractive girls...) We're all going out to catch Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and eat dinner and who knows what else. It should be fantastic. I have no idea if the conversations will be in English or in Dutch. It will probably be a large mix and eventually we'll just break down to charades (and much laughter).

We have no idea when we'll celebrate my birthday with Mark's family, maybe in late August. Who knows? I also don't know what we're doing to celebrate my actual birthday.

Other plans? Urm, hopefully Mark and I will be at Castlefest, although I don't know what day (or days) we'll be going. I really want to see the Mediaeval Baebes, as well as a few other musicians. Other than that, it just looks all around awesome. I go out with another friend to see a musical in August, and we have a welcome back party for Mark's brother. After that, I will hopefully be starting classes in September. October should be the beginnings of moving/house stuff. Yes, we should be moved and everything by November, if all goes well. Which means holidays in a brand new place. I plan on baking lots and lots of cookies for Christmas, as I will finally have access to an oven.

*No, he didn't really force me out of the apartment, he just said how much nicer it would be if I were part of the decision making process. I then decided that being with Mark and doing grown-up things was more important than Harry Potter. Because I'm saner than a lot of other people on the internet.

book: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling


Hey everyone, I'm sorry I haven't been online much lately. Whatever plague that Mark picked up has finally hit me. So, fever, headache, sore throat, the works. Most of my time lately has been spent relaxing, since I keep having trouble sleeping. Watching movies and re-reading Harry Potter in English. Also, sucking on lots of throat drops and drinking lots of tea and juice. The goal is to be all healthy again for next Sunday. I still am not entirely sure what we're going to see. People involved, please, let me know! I'm also open to any other suggestions for activities.

Oh! [livejournal.com profile] ankie and [livejournal.com profile] coronanl, let it be known that you can bike over to the apartment (hopefully I'll be well, and it won't be the disaster zone it currently is) before any movie-going and come with us by car. The apartment is much closer to you than Cinestar, I think, and cars are comfy. If that doesn't work, we might be able to arrange some sort of pick-up. Just let me know.

Beyond that, I've received sad news from home that a cousin of mine has recently passed away. When we were young, we got a long and were very nearly best friends. We had started to get to know each other again before I moved. It's always very sad when someone you know dies young. She really was a wonderful person.

Well, our little apartment has been hit by sickness. Mark has been having headaches, sore throat and a fever since yesterday. Luckily, his fever has already gone down a bit today. I've been doing my best to make him feel comfy and get better, which means making lots of tea.

Unfortunately, I also have some sort of crud, not helped by my bleeding week of course. Naturally, this has to happen when there is nothing in the house to eat or drink. Fabulous. I am filled with tired. I tried to play a little stepmania, in the hopes that it would spark up some adrenaline, but it's just not there. I feel worse now, actually, which kind of sucks. However, at least my stomach no longer hates me, which it hinted at yesterday. I think I'll probably drag myself out by bike to get some groceries to tie us through the weekend. Not looking forward to that, but I'm kind of wanting real food. Greens and fruits would be really nice to have, at this point in time. These is just no way I'm going to get Mark out of the apartment, which means the car is out.

I hate when both of us get crud/sick when there is nothing in the apartment. It almost always seems to happen when Mark is sick, and I have crud, and I have to go out to get stuff.

Other stuff? Yeah, I can mention some other stuff.

I met up with [livejournal.com profile] ankie last Friday, I believe (or was it Thursday? No, it was definitely Friday) and met her house mate, [livejournal.com profile] coronanl. Awesomely fun people to hang out with, and I'm looking forward to hanging out with them some more, especially since our move date has been pushed back another month. That happened totally on our decision, so that we can take advantage of some nifty things to help finance the whole shebang. So, we should be moving around October 15th or so, much to the delight of the sellers, I'm sure. As they had originally wanted an extra month to look for new digs.
Anyway, [livejournal.com profile] ankie and I wandered through the international market on Friday, then headed back to her house, where I met [livejournal.com profile] coronanl. We hung out, I ate dinner with them, we laughed. Good times, good times. I'm hoping to set up another meeting type thingy with [livejournal.com profile] ankie, preferably before the 22nd, which is when Mark, friends and I go out to the movies to celebrate that I'll be alive 22 years on the 26th. We're going to go to the Cinestar to catch a movie (I don't know what one yet), but we might also stop in the new WZZRD gamecafé to play around. Who knows. I'm still open to more people hopping along (though, y'know, not many people in the area) and suggestions for movies.

Mark and I have seen Transformers. I thought it was a great popcorn flick. Loads of prettiness and explosions. I always go to see Harry Potter on opening night (it is a tradition, I will continue it, darnit). I don't mind seeing these things twice, but Mark might have problems with it. :P At any rate, I'm open to suggestions. Only one movie has gotten a 'nee' from a friend: Die Hard 4.0. So, it will not be that for the 22nd.

Any suggestions?

Anyway, [livejournal.com profile] ankie and I wandered through the international market on Friday, then headed back to her house, where I met [livejournal.com profile] coronanl. We hung out, I ate dinner with them, we laughed. Good times, good times. I'm hoping to set up another meeting type thingy with [livejournal.com profile] ankie, preferably before the 22nd, which is when Mark, friends and I go out to the movies to celebrate that I'll be alive 22 years on the 26th. We're going to go to the Cinestar to catch a movie (I don't know what one yet), but we might also stop in the new WZZRD gamecafé to play around. Who knows. I'm still open to more people hopping along (though, y'know, not many people in the area) and suggestions for movies.

Mark and I have seen Transformers. I thought it was a great popcorn flick. Loads of prettiness and explosions. I always go to see Harry Potter on opening night (it is a tradition, I will continue it, darnit). I don't mind seeing these things twice, but Mark might have problems with it. :P At any rate, I'm open to suggestions. Only one movie has gotten a 'nee' from a friend: Die Hard 4.0. So, it will not be that for the 22nd.

Any suggestions?
Time to bring everyone up to speed on my life. This last weekend Mark took me to Les Chevaux nearby Buinen in Drenthe for my 21st birthday. It was his huge present to me, and it was fantastic. )
