The weekend at Valery’s I was talking about last post was pretty cool, we got to see Iron Man 2 in Imax ! Awesome movie ! Loved the humor We also did some looking around for a new cell phone for Val, she wants an Android one (good choice !). So a bit of gadget shopping by proxy, which is always cool She hasn’t made a final decision yet though, but the HTC Desire is making a fair chance. And she made me brownies for my bday ! They were reaaaaaaaaaaally yummy
Saw a lot of people I hadn’t seen in a while. Kristel (who now lives in England) came to Belgium for a few days so I went to visit her. She had brought me a big bar of chocolate, Toblerone … which is sooooooo good.
I also met up up with Ilse & Nick, had been almost a year since we last saw them. We went to a restaurant here in Ghent to catch up. Was pretty nice, excep that the restaurant got my order wrong: instead of mushroom sauce with my steak they gave me pepper sauce … which consists out of small round things (pepper balls) and for those of you who know me, that’s a big no no !
Also went to have lunch with Tom1 in Kortrijk when I was in the neighborhood and met up with some of my old colleagues at Korfina. I don’t think the big boss even recognized me anymore
Yesterday I had a day off and did a LAN party with the guys, some Starcraft 2 and Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance. Not the best LAN, in the end we only played 1 or 2 games. Lots of setting up and we started pretty late. At least the tip from Benny about the custom AI paid off, games weren’t too easy or too hard like last time. After the LAN we went to the late evening showing of Robin Hood. What an awful movie. Without giving away too much of the plot, this really wasn’t Robin Hood at all, they could have named it something completely different and no one would have made the connection.
Got some trips on the agenda as well. On Monday I leave for the Ukraine for 4 days together with Kristof. Going to meet up with the guys there and do some team building. I hope that ashcloud doesn’t come back while I’m there though, don’t want to be stuck there because in the weekend it’s the Queaso LAN which I’d love to go to The weather was looking good until a few days ago, now they predict the same as here in Belgium, which is rain and coldness.
Got another trip lined up as well, but this one isn’t for business. I’m going to Disney Land Paris baby ! It’s booked for the 20th of June. Arwen had always said he wanted to take his kid Milan there once and now that I work at Thomas Cook again I get the occasional discount. This one was an over 50% off one so well worth it. Going with Katrien, Arwen, Milan and Quinten (Milan’s half brother). This time we even got a decent hotel, the one we had last time I was there wasn’t very clean. I’m looking forward to it, Space Mountain here we come !
