The Netherlands 28th of May 2006
We take the train from Hillegom to Amsterdam. We arrive at about 2pm at Paradiso, very early… way too early. There is nobody there yet. We get some food. We’re going to “Aran Irish Pub” at Max Eeuweplein, we had Spare-ribs. Well Ozzy and I had, Patricia ordered a hamburger.
We chat a bit with the girls, They told us that they are going to see The Streets in France next week. Cool! Would love to do that as well, but I can never ask time off, that is too short notice. And I don’t really know The Streets anyway. After a while, Mike walks by, I don’t even recognize him, but these two girls did. We were having a chat, but the girls get distracted and ignored me for a second, cos Mike walked by… Also The Mitchell Brothers and Professor Green. When the doors opened, the two girls in front of us, still have to buy a membership card, We have bought them earlier today at a shop “Uit” at Leidseplein. We stood on the first row. There is nobody there yet, except the 3 of us. We stand against the stage, there is no fence, where do I have to leave the banner? I placed it on stage.

I also have to say “ow, ow, ow” through his microphone…
And during” fit” he says: “I want all the fit girls on stage”… there are lots of girls getting on stage …
I’m not like that, I’m too shy, Mike comes over and stands right in front of us…Ozzy, Patricia and a few guys around us were pointing at me, so… Mike grabs my hand and he pulls me on stage…. there I was… on stage… with the Streets, and about about fifty other girls.

Mike‘s shoe got stolen, while he did some crowdsurfing, then he walked off.
Patricia got very ill that evening. She probably didn’t drink enough. She didn’t want to go anymore. I didn’t get the impression that she enjoyed herself much either.
If I go to a gig and you want to join me, That is absolutely fine, the more the merrier, but I want to be sure you are enjoying yourself. If you don’t, I’m sorry, but I don’t have time to entertain you. You’re on your own then. Sorry!
I haven’t seen Patricia since…
