This blog is two years old today. That means it was 730 days ago that I first put fingers to keyboard and started telling the people of the internet about my life in Holland. Two years of blogging. This now means my blog is at the age were it is constantly asking annoying questions like ‘why is the sky blue’ and following up with ‘but why?’ when they receive the answer. It also cries when it can’t have ice-cream or candy floss and I have to spend a lot of time rescuing it from trees it some how managed to climb up but can’t get down from. It also can’t be left alone with other blogs of the same age because they would only end up getting each other in trouble.
Here are some of the highlights from the past year:
I said ‘yeah I do’ to a friend’s proposal of marriage and spent a few hours as a married man on Valentines Day.
Putting My Foot in It:
The language divide led to an embarrassing situation when I accidentally accused a random tourist of being a prostitute.
Strange Kittah Behaviour:
It seemed very likely that I would have to hold an intervention when I discovered that my cat was an alcoholic.
I Fought the Law:
I never thought jogging was illegal until I nearly got arrested for looking suspicious.
Everything seemed to go wrong as I spent a Saturday afternoon trying to capture a photo of the illusive Sinterklaas.
Ever wondered why so many people in Amsterdam are looking for Charlie? I discovered the answer.
Confusing and Baffling:
Imagine the must unexpected thing possible happening to you and then multiply it by ten. Then you might just come close to how surprised I was when I was approached in the street by a woman wearing a fake penis.
Let Them Eat Space Cake:
After eating space cake I discovered that it is possible to think that Twister is the best movie ever and forget where you are even though you are sitting on your own couch.
