With a bright sun, we drive into Nassfeld. When I check into the hotel, the roommates (which I don't know) seem to have my badge (digital key) already. I don't know who the roommates are. I decide not to wait in front of the room and to come back later. When I was just outside enjoying the sun, I see that the TMF crew still needs help with their stuff, so I shoot them help. VJ Sofie calls suddenly from far, "hey Apple, are you there again?!". I am totally surprised that she even knows my name. "Of course, I still have you on facebook and myspace!". And I thought about television folk they get to see so many people that they hardly remind you. Perhaps the limbo dancing contest that I won last year on the journey has something to do with it.When I go back to my room to find my roommates, there appears to be a problem: they are four people and the room is ... for four people. I get back to the desk ... There they had been looking for me, there was a mistake. But no problem, I get a room for myself alone. It's an 8 persons bedroom!! And on my badge is also half-board, while I had not payed for it. It's my lucky day! After unpacking, I go with the guys I got to know on the bus to shop for equipment rental. Since they won their travel but Alex has his own material, I get their voucher. It really is my lucky day! Again money saved. After dinner we go to the welcome drink in the Cube club under the hotel. Everyone gets a T-shirt and hat, and very important: free pasoa orange.After the welcome, there are some fun games where we are amused to watch it. Another challenge was singing the song "You don't know" of Milo. Two candidates were asked to sing the text of the song. They choose not volunteers, but cites Otto Jan Ham (Stubru) forward. For the counterpart of Otto Jan, calls upon the unsuspecting Apple from the public. "Noooooooooooooo way" shoot through my head. I really don't know the text by heart. I can hardly hang the coward, and even get downright stage direction. Otto Jan and I put the song (without music). I hear myself sing in the boxes, and embarrassed me to death compared to Milo. I am raping his song really by singing that false and not knowing the text. Otto Jan is not much better. In the election of the winner, Otto Jan decides that the price for me is: a mobile phone! It really really is my lucky day! Afterwards there is a performance of the band Freaky Age with a nice afterparty. At 1 a.m. I'm lying in my room, which suddenly feels very large.
