I hope youíre okay Bonny.

Iím run off my feet at the moment. On top of having plenty of my own work to be getting on with, weíre having some major renovations done. Currently demolishing the old garden shed with my son Euan. Iím too old for this.

Good luck with the works!

So far my health seems to be OK. Just got back from BF's which was great. In two weeks I have a short vacation so I can spend more time with him. I spent my free minutes knitting and crocheting for the nephew/niece that's due this month.

Pfff... crocheted a panda baby shoe. Just putting the little parts together took me three hours.

Sooo for the past few months I've been eyeing the Nine Lives Entertainment site daily. Reason - there were going to be VIP upgrades offered to Dir En Grey tickets. I've been wanting to meet the band and they don't hang around after shows for photo opportunities (plus addressing them at random isn't easy with the language barrier). Plus it's nigh impossible to get a good place at the concert - if you check my photos from the queue you'll understand why.

A few weeks ago they announced the release date: 12 Sept, 6:0 PM CET. I noted the date, and good fortune, I would be home at the time!
The purchase link would be released 48 hours before the sale. Couldn't find a link, but a quick search yesterday led me to a well-kept-up French fansite that linked to the sales page. Found the official link after that.

So, today, 18:00 PM, I get in to buy tickets. Prices weren't announced in advance, they were Ä99 including service costs. First I need to set up a PayLogic account. Did that.
Login to my bank account failed five times in a row. Unfortunately this meant I lost the ticket. Tried to get another one but apparently 15 minutes is all it took to sell them all out.

:(

Thatís a pity about the ticket. Maybe they should do two nights. How big is the venue?

No idea. Never been to Dortmund either.

Two nights sounds fun and it appears there's room in their schedule but Diru doesn't typically add dates. I'm happy they announced a new tour so recently after the last one (possibly it had to do with the technical issues. They work with computerized images and the keyboard sounds are also added by computer, but the sync-ing failed - in London it was so bad it couldn't be fixed and they had to build a setlist of songs they could play without computer - while doing a show. )

I'm currently at BFs. His sister had a baby yesterday, which was wonderful. So cute!

And yesterday I had the news that my old boss Henk passed away. That's the one who was left blind and legless by diabetes and whose apartment burnt down last year.

Attended the funeral today - that is, the church mass, not the burial. Henk is now buried at 200m from my house, which is a bit strange.

They went all out for the church mass - Henk was brought to the church by hearse drawn by four horses, massive amount of people, packed church - a beautiful church with colourful interior (piccies here) , a professional live singer with professional sound system, a lengthy service with much Dutch schlager, pigeon release and standing ovation. Exhausted...

I'm sorry to hear about that loss Bonny. It seems your old boss had quite a good and attended funeral. People seemed to appreciate him.

Haha, it died a few weeks ago, I just bought another one last weekend. In the meantime, I lost my job, my girlfriend, my workmate retired and my super friendly black neighbour went to China. So the last month was pretty mentally hard to deal with,reason why I was a bit away, but I'm feeling better now.

It's his big 40. I bought him the new Zelda game, which I mockingly call "lawn mowing simulator" since there's so much cutting grass to get rubies.

He used to cut the grass, he was a very nice boy...
