I've had a busy week with work and pleasantries: dinner and partying with lots of old colleagues from the Themepark on fridaynight (got home 3.30am, oh my!), long night at work yesterday (got home at 2am) and a trip to Safaripark Beekse Bergen today (had to get up at 8am).
Let's see.... partynight first. Managed to leave work early, quickly visited the themepark (knowing that Big Boss Jack wasn't in), said hi to everyone, then went into town (Alphen aan de Rijn) for dinner with 20 others. Cheap pizza, cheaper lambrusco mmm. :) Next stop was the bowlingalley where more fun and drinks were had and finally we ended up in one of the local clubs. Unbeknownst to us, there was a themed party going on. 'Pimps & Hoes'. And we landed in the middle of it. Oh my. How old I felt between all those drinking, hugging and jumping teenagers... Oh well, the music was OK, the drinks were cold, the view was pleasant from time to time so all in all it was a good night with me ending up home waaaay later than usual.
Next: safaritrip. Skunktaur, Hiryu, Thaily, Graywolf and me felt like going to the zoo, and for a change we chose for the safaripark (the fact that we had coupons helped too ;) For photo's and the full story, check either thaily's or _graywolf_'s LJ. A great day indeed, was good to get to see them all again. Pegla, get well soon!
Monday: half a day at the job (lunch for 15 guests, should be a breeze), at night a meeting with the gamingclub
Tuesday: No work. Car goes to Seat garage to investigate the powerloss and the spontaneous revving. Will probably be hanging around in Leiden or Alphen to kill time while being carless. Should have it back the same day....
Wednesday: Car goes to my own normal garage to get anti-rust treatment and to get the big dent hammered out from under the passenger door. Must repair bike in order to get to work later that day
Thursday: Day off, but carless for the entire day, most likely I'll stay at home to do chores
Fri/Sat/Sun: Working. A lot. Busy.
So, if the gods are smiling on me, I'll have my car back on friday without the dent, with a new paintjob and without any more engine trouble. Cross your fingers.
