ahdn_paul_06 Yes. Just post something not related to the Beatles that you feel like sharing a-hard-days-night-john-2

 

Thanks MeanMrMustard. I haven't seen SunKing for a while.. and I'm sorry about your laptop. Any chance to take it back to the store??

Its got a repairment plan thingy where you pay £8p/m and that covers all breakdowns but it has to be sent away so its the inconvenience more than anything. It was last in 3 months ago and within 5 days of getting it back the left click on the touchpad started dying again. In 20 months they have had to replace the motherboard, touchpad x 2 (so far but it will be x3 if it comes back), keyboard, hard drive and who knows what this time - and it was bought new.
So trying to get it written off but i doubt they will agree as if they do replace it free of charge. I wont be buying a Toshiba as its a piece of garbage.

 

Linde, its an anything goes, within reason, thread. I think it was created so folks could post whatever from the mundane to the groung breaking and not stress about remaining on topic (not that that stops folk from going off topic in other threads).

 

Why doesnt the site spell checker like the word repairment, isnt it a true word?

My last computer was like that, mmm, then somebody stepped on it and a lot of the screen turned black. I got a new one yesterday, and it's a fancy kind  of Toshiba.

Felt so bad last night - I´m all for animal rights and under any other circumstances I would not have laughed at this because it´s really not funny but I couldn´t help it - thought I´d share.

A comedian asked some people in his audience what was the wierdest thing they had ever done on holiday and there were some slightly strange answers and then a middle-aged guy said ''I kicked an armadillo.''

Apparently, he went on a guided nature tour and the thing walked out in front of him, he panicked, so he kicked it and it went flying over the tree.

I wish I never laughed at that because poor armadillo (it´s really not funny) but I couldn´t help it - even my mom looked shocked that I laughed. (hope I haven´t offended anyone by sharing tht - not my intentions at all.)

 

Anyway, I feel apprehensive about tommorow. Eleven years since George left us and I know I´ll be thinking about him all day long. It will be very sad, I wasn´t that  into The Beatles last year so experiencing the anniversaries of their deaths are a new thing.

Lol, I probably would have laughed too though.

I know, 11 years already! 

 

I was supposed to have a job interview last Tuesday, but Monday the dude who was supposed to interview me rang me and told me I didn't have to come anymore and just hung up. It was a bit rude.  My mom was completely pissed off so she rang the company, as I was a bit shocked and sad and all. She complained about his behaviour and the girl on the phone sent an official complaint to his supervisor and to him. He will now get a reprimande and is forced to apologize to me as well. Also, the girl said the job wasn't even taken yet! So she placed me for next week. Then, today they rang me again and told me next week wasn't possible either, due to personal reasons of that douchebag. So now I have to come at the 11th! Aaargh. The appointment for Tuesday was already made SIX weeks ago. Everything has gone wrong with applying for this job so far. Everytime they told me theiy had a full agenda, but a couple of my friends would apply daaays after me and they would just get the job! WTF. And now I'm getting this.

 

Uuugh.

 

This weekend we're celebrating Sinterklaas, that should be fun.

Pfft, that really did make me laugh! Was the comedian on TV?

 

Hope you enjoy Sinterklaas, Linde- is that the festival involving oranges/coal in shoes? (Or am I thinking of something else?)

 

I hope everyone's OK about George today.

Yes, he was on Live At The Apollo, I can't remember his name though.

Yeah it's kinda like Christmas but different. Just google for some pictures. It's actually for children but we still celebrate it in a different way. He arrives on a boat with ''Black Peters'' (zwarte pieten in Dutch) and the story basically goes that he goes over the roofs with his horse and the Zwarte Pieten with a bag of presents and the Zwarte Pieten go through the chimney and put a present in your shoe as you put it in front of the fireplace (if you have one) the night before. And you also have to sing a Sinterklaas song. Sometimes kids put oranges or carrots in their shoe ''for the horse''. Next day you'll come downstairs and find some presents and candy (Pepernoten mostly) in your shoe. On 5 December it's ''Pakjesavond'' and that's when he comes to your house (my parents used to hire an actor when we still believed in it) or when you just have a bag of presents ''he left''. 

 

This 800 year old man obviously doesn't exist, but it is derived from a myth. Also, his entrance is always filmed and broadcasted and we always used to watch that when we were little. He also arrives in other places, like here, in Almelo. There are a lot of Sinterklazen. Anyway, there's basically one actor who appears in public and on tv shows the most.

 

Okay, the way we celebrate it now, now my little brother and sister are nearly adults too, is a very common way. We make little wishlists and we write or name on it. We then put it in a box and draw lots. Usually you then buy some presents, make an often funny poem about the person whose lot you got and then you also craft something funny together. We don't actually do the crafting, because no one really had the time. We only did this for 5 euros, because my parents and grandma also just bought presents for us, to kinda keep the old tradition going. This is the first time we do the lot thing, so this is more just a test. In school we also used to draw lots for SInterklaas, in primary school.

Anyway, it's not just giving presents as they're being put in a jute bag, which is the bag ''Sinterklaas'' usually puts the presents in and brings them with him. It's always very nice and cozy and all. It's just the whole sphere of laughing at the poems, eating pepernoten and unwrapping the gifts.

Some people also just celebrate Christmas with presents here, or both Christmas and Sinterklaas. We only celebrate Sinterklaas with presents and even though I'm a huge Christmasfan and I love to decorate the house and all, I just wouldn't want it to be switched. I'm just used at celebrating Sinterklaas with presents.

 

I hope I explained it well, but I think that if you really want to know what it is about, you'll have to use Google, as I'm horrible at explaining things a-hard-days-night-john-6

For those who have itunes they have released a new version #11 for download, before upgrading i would recommend you check out its layout before downloading. Some of its functionality has gone and its not gone down well in some quarters .

Sinterklaas was awesome!

I've got:

- A H&M giftcard

- A little Christmas house with light in it

- A bauble (? that's what google translator says lol) with my first letter on it. It's a really beautiful one and of course they only had Linda and no Linde..so yeah..

- A Buddha figurine

- A necklace with an apple with a little clock in it

- A rubber duck (as I collect them)

- A chocolate letter

- A little angel to hang in the Christmas tree

- A smokey eyes eyeshadow set

- A book about the Beatles

 

So yeah, I'm very pleased. It was a good Sinterklaas.

I had heard of "Sinterklaas" before -- I didn't realize it was a whole festival and to-do with gifts and stuff.

 

I liked the word when I first saw it years ago, and I created a character in a story I wrote, a bear who is a pet but who escapes and attacks a man.  I named the bear "Splinterclaws".

Cheers for all that Linde. I actually find it really interesting how other countries celebrate Chirstmas.

 

Does anyone know what vocal range Elvis was?
