trees have flowers
since a week or two now, the white and purple and pink bloemetjes have sprung on the trees in the street and behind the house. and the sun shines into my apartment in the evening.
i was strangely relieved to find out today that we didn't get that big job we were bidding on. the gig was low budget for its complexity, and i got the feeling client wasn't really that interested in us anyway. turns out it's no great loss financially, and i have other things i need to do.
i find it strange that in holland, something called 'american hot dogs' comes in a can. there are eight of them, skinny long things in a can of water. when you fry them, they do start to smell like hot dogs. but nicole told me you're not supposed to cook em at all, you just eat em right from the can. which is fine, but then why call them 'american hot dogs', why not call them 'magere blikwaterworstjes'?
