Chauvinism ...

... is the virtue of the vicious.

It's queen's day. This means that the royal family once again gets a very skewed view of the dutch people because on their annual tour through some province they only get to meet farmers and mentally handicapped. Who play old games, whilst singing and hitting eachother with pillows. I have no idea how the royal family stays ' normal' .

I do know that Beatrix has trouble getting through half an hour without a roll-it-yourself cigarette so if you pay attention you might actually catch a few minutes where she's ... away.

At least: sources close to the palace say. Very close. Practically across the road, even.

Anyway, pride in the place where you're born is just as useful as chainsaw at a dinnerparty. Sure, you can use it to cut your meat but it isn't very civilised, discreet or subtle.

We managed to avoid most of the queen's day stuff! Yay! Although I miss the orange Tom Pouces... ah well. Another 2 days off extra after this one :) Life is good.
