Hanging Out The Dirty Laundry

I’m so glad it is Monday, now I can finally rest. The weekend’s been extremely busy, especially Saturday when our two families met for the first time. We finished the preparations just in time and the new and untried recipe for pea-soup was a big success. The two families made arrangements ‘behind our backs’ to get together and make a ‘cantate’. This has been a tradition in my family for ages at wedding parties, when the lives of the bride and groom are explained with songs, sketches and so on. It usually focuses on particularly embarrassing moments of each of the newlyweds’ pasts.

My Favouritest Hobby

Tomorrow is an important day: for the first time ever the two families will meet. So the future brothers-, sisters-, parents-, nieces- and dogs-in-law will see each other for the first time. The question is: will they hate each other or not? We already did a smaller experiment with our parents, and I'm happy to report that they met without any serious blood shedding.

Duck Wuck

During the Christmas Holidays, a Belgian "Love the animals or I’ll smash your brains in" organisation called Gaia campaigned against foie gras. As you all know, foie gras is made of duck livers that are made very rich and fatty by force feeding the ducks in question. They just stuff a tube in the ducks throat and open the valve until the animal almost bursts out of it seams. No chewing required.

The Emperor’s New Clothes

Last Tuesday, the annual winter sales period, or ‘solden’ (Flemish)/Soldes (French) as they are called, started again. That’s a mighty big deal here; journalists all over the country give almost live coverage of the whole event. Every year, the big question is which stores didn’t respect the official and legally permitted period of time to sell their goods at a much reduced price.

I'm An Addict

I quit a while ago, although I must admit it wasn’t the first time I attempted to give up my addiction. All in all, it was a good attempt. I didn't touch the stuff for more than eight months. But you know what they say: ‘once an addict, always an addict’. It’s not because you don’t do it anymore that you’ve become impervious to its magnetic force. Especially not when it’s installed on both your office and your home computers.


The 2006 Bloggies are here again! For those of you unfamiliar with these annual Oscars of the weblog community, check out the 2006 Bloggies site. I spent some quality office time (lunch break) posting my list. I won’t mention what my favourites were for every category, but these blogs were in it for most categories:

Does My Bum Look Fat In This Skirt?


I can’t deny it to myself anymore: I’m gaining weight. That’s normal, you should think, at the end of the year everyone collects a bit of fat because of all the parties. What worries me is that I missed most parties because I was abroad. And the ones I went too didn’t always have good food, so I didn’t eat that much. Still, the scales were showing higher and higher numbers.

Paylog by Telenet

Before I set up this blog, I compared different possibilities to set up a weblog. I wasn’t too enthusiast about free services such as Blogger, because I read a lot of complaints on different blogs from people who couldn’t get access anymore, who lost parts or even their whole weblog and so on. At the time, blogger often was just dead slow. So I preferred the idea of setting up a blog on the webspace I already had at my disposal with my ISP Telenet, using an application – preferably a free one – to design and manage it.

Happy hangover

« And for you also so much » as we say here. May the iron spiked rubber ball that’s bouncing around in your head loose momentum soon and may the high pitched tones of the shrieking children around you be muffled forever when they choke on the leftover cake in the fridge.

Picture This

For those of you living under a meter and a half of snow, here are some tropical pictures of my trip to Niger a couple of weeks ago to warm you up a bit.

If you want proof that Niger is a warm country: they grow bananas in their own gardens, something you rarely see in Belgium.
