We had my brother visiting over Easter.. We had some good fun. Got some booze, and good food.
As usual we walked a lot around Paris, and also visited Notre-Dame (I hadn't been there in ages.. ) - Lots of people, and especially lots of tourists.

Easter monday we visited Le Louvre, I hadn't been there since 1997 or so, not much had changed, except they had finished the Egyptian section. As always, I had forgotten my camera, so the few photos I managed to take, has been taken with my phonecam.

I was quite impressed with the Egyptian exhibition, and can warmly recommend it.

Angry lookin' mofo

They actually have a Sphinx

We also shopped and ate at "Le Caroussel du Louvre", which is a sorta mall/gallerie beneath Le Louvre. They've got a bunch of overpriced shops, and a huge restaurant with food from all over the world.

Sick as a dog

I'm rarely sick.. even more rarely to the point of not going to work. There is nothing more frustrating than sitting at home being sick..
Well, the jump from winter to summer did it for me, my body freaked out. I'm sneezing like a madman, and my throat is sore as hell.

Though, it gives me some time to catch up on some work (from the comfort of my own bed) - naturally my coding looks "interesting" as I'm pretty much super high from all the drugs and antibiotics.

Thieving bastards

I came home last night to a nasty surprise - my semi-monthly bank "statement".. It would seem that, while I was at the bbq event on Sunday - I was simultaneously using my creditcard with a passion somewhere in Belgium..

Result: ~1700 EUR charged from my account. Fucking hell..

Went to my bank this morning, and made the "opposition" and all the other damned papers that needed signing. My creditcard had to be destroyed, so I have to wait a week for a new one.. Jeebus, what a mess !
Good news is, that my bank insurance covers everything - so I've got nothing to worry about.

I'd like to get my hands on those sorry-ass hobos that duplicated my card.. it'd almost be worth the 1700EUR..

Summer is here

So we went from winter directly to summer - seems like we completely skipped spring !

Last week we had snow, and were all wearing big sweaters, scarfs and gloves. Yesterday and today it's around 23 degrees celsius - and I'm just wearing a shirt.. no need for a jacket.

I love the summer..

New laptop !

Wohooo ! My new laptop just arrived..
FreeBSD-CURRENT installation in progress.

Monday night fight action

So I was sitting at home watching a movie, when all of a sudden all hell broke loose down on the street where I live.. A couple of no-good-drunken-hobos from the little bar next to my place, had gotten into a regular fist fight..
Jeebus, they kicked the fuck out of each other, yelling and screaming like a couple of dandies... Anywho, shortly after the fight a wholelotta cop cars came, including a firetruck.. They must have been bored ?

It provided a good supplement from the crap movie I was watching..

First BBQ of the year

Went out to the 'burbs yesterday, and had this years first BBQ - and (as usual) it was most excellent. Few things are better than a shitload of meat sizzling on the grill.
It was still a bit chilly, but definently do-able.
Dim, Rog and myself also threw back a few nice cold brewskies..

aahh.. I feel the summer comin'

On a side note: The next person to send me a invite, will be entering a world of pain..
