After rain comes sunshine.

^^ Ain't that the truth.

» Our boys came home depressed. That's what they said anyway and could you blame them? We were still drowning in sorrow as well. But we still wanted to thank them for the joy they brought us the past few weeks. So last Tuesday, Amsterdam became the place to be. The guys first went to the Queen, where Bert van Marwijk (the coach) and Giovanni van Bronckhorst got knighted. Then it was time for a boat tour through the Canals of Amsterdam. And boy, you could see they were not up for that. What they absolutely did not expect is that there'd be so many people to cheer for them and thank them. You could see their faces lighten up more and more as things progressed and got even more crazy. There were over 700.000 people in Amsterdam that day. For them. And they didn't even win! I watched with tears in my eyes at times; the boys were just so surprised and happy (even I had calmed down and only could feel pride. Not only for the boys, but also for my country. To do this for them just filled me with me happiness and pride. It was so beautiful to see).

Giovanni van Bronckhorst: "We may not have won the world cup, but the Dutch people are certainly champions." \o/ Amen, Gio. :P

Arjen Robben: "This is crazy! Thank you :D :D" Seriously, his smile was splitting his face in two that day. Everytime we saw Robben on tv, he had this big loving grin on his face. It was lovely ♥

» Everybody go and join [livejournal.com profile] claire_kay's awesome new graphics community [livejournal.com profile] palejewels. She's a wonderful iconmaker and I'm so happy I can call her my friend ♥

» Watching Band of Brothers again, with my mom this time. She's just as taken with it as I am. I love the characters and actors more and more each time I watch an episode. Lipton (who is really Donnie Wahlberg (NKOTB) and omg did I squeeee and facepalm when I discovered that. I thought he had a familiar face when I first watched the series, but did not really recognize him as one of my childhood heroes, lol) is one of my favorites. Along with Speirs, who's such a BAMF (and omg the actor who plays him is so gorgeous ♥) but a real good leader. And Doc Roe with his sexy voice. And I could go on and on. Did I mention I just really love the series? I hate that there's not really a fandom for it, though. It seems to have died down. That's what you get, for being 10 years late. fghklhglwg;gq;.

» Going to school tomorrow to get my classroom ready for the new schoolyear. There's a lot to do, since I moved with all my stuff to another classroom and I don't think I'll get everything done tomorrow. But I wanted to make a start, cause I KNOW that I'll be bitching and moaning about the new schoolyear starting in my last week of vacation :P

» Off to bed now. Have a good evening, bb's. <3
