Happy times

I'm going to throw happy selfish news onto you now. Be warned.

I had a blast last saturday at the company party, it was at a western themed area. I took part in a firebreathing workshop, tasted 6 different american and canadian whiskies and rode the mechanical bull for a recordbreaking 6.5 seconds. BUT the best part was late at night when I was called up on stage to receive the prize for 'most original outfit'. Not that I was dressed like a genuine gunslinger, but I won thanks to A) Carrying my mobile phone in my breastpocket which continuously played the theme from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, and B) giving the mechanical bull a headshot with my toy pistol when it threw me off for the second time.

Then sunday I drove for nearly three hours to the very southwestern tip of the Netherlands to have dinner at Oud Sluis, currently the #1 restaurant in the country (3 Michelin stars). I can't even remember everything I had but everything was a work of art, so goddamn beautiful and delicious! Lime-sake-wasabi ice, passionfruit jelly with a eucalyptus-lolly, tartar of langoustine, me and my family were in culinary heaven. We've decided this to be the start of an annual tradition. No more useless birthday gifts, but lasting birthday experiences.

More sunday: My brother is taking over my old car, with dad acting as bank. When all has been arranged, I'll be totally out of debt, both with the bank and with my parents. And then I can finally start to save, and look around for a new apartment to buy. Because:......

Monday: meeting with my Resourcemanager. To sum it up: I've been offered a steady contract! Oh, and I passed the two exams last month with the highest grades in the group, but I think I already mentioned that. Man, it feels good to brag. (won't do it too often, promise)

Monday and tuesday: Long phonecalls with Dasha. Think it's safe to say we're kinda like boyfriend/girlfriend now. I'm seeing her again fridaynight.

But Rob, is there absolutely NOTHING wrong in your perfect little world? Well, yes there is. Sitting in a trainingroom instead of running around with plates of food made me gain weight again. I feel fat. Must do more workouts. Next week I'll probably be buying a heavy-duty dance platform. Yes, DDR kinda platform. Mock me all you want, it beats the gym and is cheaper.

    A few weeks ago I went to my optician for my annual checkup. Once again my eyesight dropped. Contact lenses are now a whopping -13 and -11.5. As a…
