--> Stavanger (N) days of rest

It's quite funny to be at this house with Gry and Geert Jan as he and I spoke Dutch and he sign-languaged it for Gry and we were most of the day behind the computer.
This day I really was the computernerd for a day and thanks to a friend in Holland, I had a IRC Chat channel made for me, so now the internet has a special place for all people visiting this website to communicate with other readers. Once in a while, I'll be popping in.

The Sunday started with breakfast on the most relaxed way. There was no need to rush and it was very good for me too.

At night we all three went to the city centre and watched Scary Movie 2 in the cinema. It was a very enjoying movie, although you should not expect any intelligence or intelligent acting in it. The Scary Movies are just good parodies on all other released scary films.

The night ended with Geert Jan and I testing the chatroom and talking with the very first visitors. Very funny.

I hope this short report won't disappoint me, but I know that I certainly wasn't disappointed by this peaceful weekend.

Thanks Geert Jan and Gry!
More tomorrow!
