Not having English as first language does that to you.

We got it in High School. Also English, German and French for three years in a row. And of course we also got Dutch lessons.

Yesterday I bought nothing

How much did you pay? It's easy to get ripped off when buying nothing, I've found.

Well if it was any of them, then it was cheaper than the £10.80 I paid for nothing.

Today I splurged on a new car stereo. Again. My 'old' thing was truly horrible, so now I bought a real brand. Pity that there seem to be no car stereos that take SD cards anymore. So I bought one with a USB connection instead:

It fits very nicely with the dashboard of my car, was easy to install, and it works fine, as far as I could see in the 5 minutes I tried it.

say hello to my new friend..


It feels so weird to feel a stick after 13 years!
This one feels tighter than what I remember of them in the arcades!

Wow.

I splurged on a table and chairs today. That wasn't entirely planned, but I think I made the right decision. See for yourself (pictures taken with my crappy camera in my phone):



The table is glass and can be made langer by pulling its sides. I bought the chairs in another shop, in the colors that are shown in the last picture. 4 chairs in different colors. Everything will be delivered in the second week of july.

Oooo. What, where, when, how much, err ... wait ... just "what". WHAT?

Tineye turns up nothing.

Come on, don't taunt us and not give us details. I haven't been aware of anything besides the expensive and clunky x-arcade.

Then again, I'll probably just stick with my trusty firestorm.(no pun intended) Even that thing seems unwieldily big.

Err, nevermind...

I like your choice of table and chairs. Really cool to chose the chairs in different colours.

They have to brighten up a dark corner in the house so many different colors is better there.

I agree. They look great, but I wouldn't be able to walk in them.

I just came back from the WGT, the Wave Gotik Treffen ("Wave Gothic Meeting", and I bought a lot. I'll have to take some pictures soon, but first of all I'll show you my new precioussssss. ^_^



A pair of Demonia Transformer boots in PVC. You can take off the panels at the toes and the heels, as well as the tongue, and switch them with other designs. You can buy extra panels and the like, allowing endless customisation. Also, I can nearly spit onto the head of my sister wearing them, which is an accomplishment, seeing as she's usually larger than me.
