The mood at 2 AM
My thoughts were to go and get to to know my own country a little bit more. Never been much in the south of Holland, never been to Eindhoven (or was I ten years ago? I vaguely remember this carnival thing, hmmm, dunno, maybe I had been here after all), and as Brett and Marthijn organised this meetup: great! Let's check it out!

I can't say I saw a lot of of the city in the end but that was mainly my own fault I suppose: I should've come earlier and done the Philips museum and so on, ah well... it was brilliant anyway!

Was great to meet everyone, Texans ("How come we travel around so much? We're just a lot."), IT people ("those sessions on the TB server are set way too short, can't even go and hang my laundry, by the time I get back it has expired"), TB people ("brazil was fucking awesome"), people with cars called Tweety ("I can't believe they recognised me with the silly hat and the sunglasses"), rockers ("I have firm convictions regarding music and I believe that the music in the bar across the street is utter crap"), expat people ("my parents came to visit and wanted to go straight to Germany instead of seeing Holland.
Is that Brett without a beer in his hand??
I was offended!"), normal people ("that's a rare sight, me without a beer"), me ("I can't believe it, are those pieces of frikandel??").
-- If anyone feels misquoted let me know.

It was a wonderfull and chaotic night. The next morning was proportionally painfull :D. 

BTW: I stole some pictures from the various blogs on this night (either because they're really nice or because I'm on them), if you have any firm convictions about copyrights let me know as well!!

I think I won't write a blog as everybody has done that already and don't even have much pics. There were so many paparazzis already that this time I stayed in the back ;)
