Merry Christmas...............

I love snow. I love the pretty trees and the landscape covered with a white blanket, drinking hot chocolate and watching the snow fall while you are sitting comfortably in your warm living room.

BUT I HATED THE SNOW TODAY!!!!! I've never been so scared driving the car. It was terrible and afterwards I was trembling all over. Too much snow, too many cars. It took me an hour to drive the final 10 km home!! The final 3 km I could only drive 5 km/h!!! I've never been so glad to be at home.
OK, just had to say that.
Today it took me 90 minutes to get home. Normally it takes 45 minutes. Silly thing, in the north of NL there was no snow at all. Only those final 10 km were terrible.
It took Martin 90 minutes to get home as well (on his bike), normally it takes him 30 minutes. He ignored the cycle track, for it was impossible and dangerous to drive there (trees and branches were falling because of the heavy weight of the snow), so he cycled on the road at the same speed as the cars.
Busses were not driving today
The highway was closed or totally jammed.

I hate snow.... when you have to get somewhere >:[
Else I love it :)

Love, Corine

My grandmothers grandmother

This is my great-grandmother, or is she my great-great-grandmother? Complicated. Anyway, she is my grandmothers grandmother and she was probably born around 1870. And I've got a picture, isn't that special? Peeling apples; is she making apple puree? or baking apple pie? who knows.... Weird feeling, this is family! Do I look like her? eh... ;)

My new addiction?

As some of you know, Martin is singing in a choir. This year they are celebrating a jubilee, for the choir was founded in 1980. Yesterday evening there was a party for all choir members + partners. We were invited in De Rustende Jager where we played Black Jack and Roulette! We started with 400 dollar each. Martin and I put our money together so we had 800 dollars to gamble... Everybody started really carefully, betting with 10 or 20 dollars, but during the evening people were losing themselves in the game and betting with hunderds of dollars hahahaha. Probably this was caused by the fact the dollars only had value within these four walls, hahahaha.

The roulette wasn't really my type of thing, for it's a pure game of chance. Black Jack was more fun, for you really have to think along with the game. And you can win more money with it :D Some people lost all the money they had, but we doubled it! Together we ended up with 1760 dollar :P Such a pity this wasn't real money *g*

At the end of the evening I was so very tired, 'cause I had played a volleyball game that afternoon which had been exhausting! (but we've won it :D) So don't say I've got small eyes on the next picture ;)

More pictures of this evening can be found at the website of the Evergreenkoor'80 (foto's -> koorfeest).

9 aapjes in een boom *tralalali tralalala*

Zo!!!! Het weekend zit er weer op. En wat voor een weekend. We waren compleet meiden!!!! *spring*hups*dans* jaja, dat is me toch wat he? Gut gut, wanneer zou het weer gebeuren dat we er alle 9 zijn? Of dan eigenlijk liever toch weer met 10, net als vroeger he? Alleen wordt het dan toch echt wel tijd om een huisje te reserveren waar we met z'n allen in passen hahaha. Hoewel het toch ook wel knus was zo. Tijd voor een paar groepsfotootjes dan maar, alstublieft:

En Annemaria, je kunt dus op de fotootjes klikken, dan zie je een grotere versie :D
En nu wel even allemaal nog leuk een berichtje achterlaten he?!!

For those who haven't got a clue what I'm talking about: I spend two days with some friends, and we had a lot of fun. Time to relax, time to chat, time to go swimming, time to go walking. And listen, the most unbelievable thing happened: We went walking on Sunday morning at 8am, and only 3 of us stayed in bed, the other 6 were able to wake up so early!! Even Marianne!! hahahahaha. I made a lot of pictures during this walk, for the weather was so calm and nice. The sky was a bit foggy and the sun was rising. Except for the birds there was no sound at all. I loved it.

Deze foto's zijn trouwens bewerkt, zodat ze wat kleiner in formaat zijn.
Wilma, ik vind het echt leuk dat je de Wise Guys cd wilt hebben, het Achtung ich will tanzen was echt grappig ;P

Zo, en dat was dan mijn eerste post hier in het Nederlands - gedeeltelijk dan.

Blub blub blub

As promised, some under water pictures taken during our weekend in Center Parcs. Unfortunately a lot of pictures failed because while developping the film someone made a mistake :( Such a pity, for in this swimming pool you swim next to an aquarium which is really cool. You can see tropical fish and sharks on the other side of the glass, and it's almost real, as if you are swimming with them. But those pictures are damaged...

But here are some pics that did survive:

Fan world ...

Hello, you, reader!
I just thought it would be fun to write something in my blog, but I haven't got a clue what to write about... hmmmmm.... I just finished my Montezuma concertreport from last Saturday. There are some funny pictures with the report as well. [..] Maybe that's a nice discussion thing. Isn't it fun to have a picture of you and a singer? I say yes. Then why, last Saturday only a 9 year old girl asked the guys for signatures, and my sister and I (24 and 20 years old lalala)? Is it the fact Montezuma's Revenge is still quite unfamiliar? Is it the fact most visitors are older? Are Dutch people boring? In Germany, after visiting a Wise Guys concert, there are dozens of people with camera's! But the average age is lower as well. A cappella singing is more popular in Germany, and I've got the feeling German people value a cappella singing more than Dutch people. Dutch people go to a concert and say 'hey, that was nice' - and that's it. Maybe they'll see another show again in a couple of years. German people go to a concert and are totally enthusiastic, they ask for autographs on cd's, t-shirts, arms, etc, they ask for pictures and next time they bring all their friends. Dozens of fans wear Wise Guys t-shirts, I've never seen anyone wearing Zuma-t-shirts, though they excist. Why is there such a difference in a cappella fan world, why this difference between Germany and Holland? I really think next Zuma concert in Münster will be more enthusiastic, more thrilling than this from last Saturday in NL. Silly, isn't it?

Yesterday was soooo great. A beautiful concert. I'm still at my parents home, but busy writing a concertreport now. Let me give you one teaser picture:

That's Gonneke (my sis), Hans and me

Hans was just about to smile ;)
