Máté told me that Mike would be playing in Cologne. I’ve seen Mike there 2 years ago. It’s only 2 ½ hours drive.
Ozzy and I are going. But the same day is Kingsday in Holland. It’s the birthday of our king we’re celebrating. His actual birthday is on April 27th, but that is a Sunday this year, and out of respect for people who go to church on a Sunday they don’t celebrate on Sunday’s, they celebrate it that year on a Saturday instead. That’s the case this year. We only have a king since April 30th 2013. he took over the throne from his mum (Game of Thrones) We used to celebrate Queensday on April 30th, this year the date changed. I need to wear orange, otherwise I’ll look stupid in Amsterdam. That means I will have to wear orange to Mike’s gig too. I am not going home first. Sorry lovely German people.
Wednesday 24th was my birthday. I celebrated it for my friends and family with a BBQ in my mum’s garden last Saturday. Her house was packed, loved it, but didn’t expect it. Usually everybody is always on a holiday, this time nobody was. Everybody who was invited came over. This weekend I’ll celebrate it with The D.O.T.
I saw on Facebook that Mike would DJ on Eristoff Urban Art Forms Festival this year. It is in Graz, in Austria. Is it do-able for us Oz? I think I’m still not sure if it is. It’s an 11 hours drive, 12 hours as we stopped a few times. But I’m sure it’s worth it. Mike said in Amsterdam “Let’s hang out for a bit, it’s going to be a long journey for you.”
I saw a message on facebook on June 3rd from de Melkweg. Mike is coming to Amsterdam. He will do a DJ set. FINALLY! Last time he was here for a gig was 2008. 5 years ago, with the Streets. Ted will sort us out again. My boyfriend Mark, his friend Eric and the famous master Ozzy will join me.
I woke up at 7ish, cos Mark had to go to work, I had some stuff to do at my house, cos I have hardly been in for the last month. When that was done I watched “Step up”. I love that movie. I love Channing Tatum it was finished just before 9:30am, a couple minutes later Ozzy arrived. Just before 10am we left to get the bus to the airport. We checked in online already, we only had hand luggage (That was a tip we got from Mike in Solana Beach), so we got through very quickly.
My mate Ozzy and I went to the opening of the first official Apple Store in Amsterdam. In Holland we had a few Mac Houses and iCentres, but no Apple Store yet. Now we do, anyways we joined a queue of about 4000 people at 9:50am. The doors opened at 10. And after waiting for 1 ½ hour we got in, we got a lovely orange t-shirt, Nice for queensday people said, but it’s my 4th orange t-shirt, so I have enough, nice t-shirt to sleep in. I bought a docking station for my iPhone.
