I've been tagged several days ago, by Misty J., some crazy birdlady. As by now most of you already know (which certainly does not include TONI JOHNSON from Essex Great Britain), is that I do not get the whole concept behind this TAG-thing... (Is it a recurring thing? every once in a few month people wanna know stuff 'bout me???) I am a comicbook freak, I know the Tick, but tags...

It took me some time to post as I am currently taking a course (Sharepoint 2007) somewhere I do not have the oppurtunity to blog... So this one is a quickie...

From what I read, these are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird ( As I am weird, I guess it will be weird)
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (I WILL NOT BOTHER OTHERS; you actually think I got that much friends??)
4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs (The friends I have do not blog-hence there will be no tagging!!!)

OK: 7 things at random 'bout me!
1. I ride my bike to work (you gotta read this one!!!)
2. I take care of our kids on 1 day during the week (besides the weekends - Wednesday is my day off)
3. I Like Spiderman better than Superman (although I like Lois Lane better than Mary Jane)
4. I Coach the peanuts of the Hoofddorp Pioniers Baseball team
5. I'm doin' some sport just for me (running/gym)
6. My favorite artists are: Jimi Hendrix, Prince, Miles Davis & The Blues Brothers (or Blues in general)
7. I used to work at a hospital, hence I love hospital (reality) shows!!! The more blood, the better. Brain chirurgy... Even better!!! I even went to view the chirurgy classes and still enjoyed my lunch!!!

Gotta go!!! Have fun Reading!

Did I ever tell you about my wife's retreat last year (same group)? She had to pick up people along the way but had the car stuffed so full that whomever needed a ride had to make a space for herself...

So my wife announced (several weeks upfront) that she would not take as much stuff as last year... And me being the sceptic that I am, was shaking my head and told myself "Just wait and see"...

Luckely we have a big car with a big storage area (600 m3) which she completely filled, with just a couple of projects...

At least she didn't fill the whole passenger space (like last year) so someone could get a ride back...

But to give you an example of how things can get out of hand when you let her decide what to bring, here's a commercial (although our car is of a different make) to show you!!!


BTW: The Wii was great, although I only got 1 hour to play with it... Had to watch the semifinale between Netherlands & USA (0-6), so now WE only got 4th... (even lost the game to Japan)!!!

What can one do when the kids are off to sleep over at their grandparents, she is off to scrap the entire weekend with a couple of friends somewhere in the middle of nowhere... And we got a Nintendo Wii calling my name all the time???


Hey! Someone needs to check the gear to function fully...

And for the rest of the time:

Like the rest of y'all I need to sleep, eat & drink!

Have a playful weekend!!!

Women vs. Children

I assume I am not the only concerned father here, but...

How come I have to tell my children to be careful when drawing with filttips, glueing and such...
While she gets to tinker with ink without even being warned...


And to make matter worst... She invites other women to join in the making of mess on my diner-table! Does she warn them? NO!!! She even encourages them to experiment with all the stuff she puts outs!

This should make you smile to start your weekend!

Q: What's the difference between a Scrapper and God ?
A: God doesn't think he's a Scrapper.

Q: What's the difference between a Scrapper and a pizza ?
A: A pizza can feed a family of four.

Holiday Season

Yes, I know... I haven't posted for some time...

I've been kept busy! She wanted to change the look and feel of her site, but guess who had to make those changes to the stylesheets and HTML? CORRECT, ME!!! And to make things complicated I also had a terrible headache (which lasted for 2 weeks - due to some tension???)

I came across this site where you can get T-shirts, that will definitely get you on the good side of your scrappin' spouse... So as we approach the Holiday season, I wanted to make sure that you got your shoppinglist up-to-date!

Have fun!
