Okay, so obviously I survived Rock im Park, my first rock festival from June 6th to 8th. (Can't bring myself to call it RiP as everybody seems to be doing. They don't think of gravestones when they do that apparently.) I actually wrote a longish post about it but it's in my computer at home and I'm at work right now and forgot to put the file on my USB stick. The weather and the sound were both very mixed. As I said, longer post to come but probably not this month.

Reason: I'll be on vacation next week. Yay! Going to Stockholm with my sister.

Soccer EM 2008: the German team sucks. The best thing about our 1-0 win over Austria was Angie. Am too tired to explain that now. Tomorrow we'll have a BBQ on the roof terrace of our office building and then watch the Germany-Portugal game. We'll see how that goes. I'm not too optimistic. NL definitely looks like they'll win the whole thing.

Ha, boss just called saying I should go home now. Pfff. But I'll be a good girl and listen to him, hehe. Just this once. LOL. Nah, I'm just kidding ... anyway .... I'm off!

As always, general update

The past weeks have been a little bit crazy so I haven’t been at the computer much.

So what's been going on:
I had a car accident 2 weeks ago. And it was my fault, at least according to the police. Nobody was injured and the damage my car suffered isn’t big, but still it was no fun and of course the result was that I had a major cry fest that night alone in my apartment. Not pretty. The reason behind it wasn’t really the accident, but it kinda triggered my breakdown. I couldn’t stop crying for hours and my eyes looked completely puffy the next day. Oh boy. And don't ask me to explain why I actually cried because it sounds ridiculous even to myself. Whatever.

I’ve been out more than usual, thanks to a girl from the office that I get along with quite well. We went to a beergarden last Friday and to a cultural event in town called Blaue Nacht (blue night) on Saturday which really wasn’t that cultural. It was more pushing and shoving yourself through the crowds and look at some video/color/light projections in the market square and onto the castle on a hill above town – that was pretty cool.

Coming up is my first rock festival, Rock im Park. We’re all going, i.e. all my co-workers have tickets, too. I want to see Jimmy Eat World tomorrow and Gavin DeGraw, Stereophonics and Manic Street Preachers on Sunday. Oh, and a new guy from Australia called Pete Murray. Never heard of him before. I’m not too keen on any of the bigger/heavier acts such as Motorhead or Rage against the Machine or Kid Rock but I guess Metallica Sunday night is a must – although Germany’s first match at the Euro 2008 soccer championship will be going on at the same time. Dilemma.

Note to self: post something about Go Home Productions and mash-ups in general soon.
