I’ll Stop Talking About This Morning Thing Soon

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Sixty Seven]

Tomorrow is September and I’m actually pretty stoked about it cause I change the GroningenRain.nl tagline and with it all the graphics across the socials.

I know how to do it manually, but could it be scripted?


But first the news:

I’ll work on that script over the course of September and see if I can get it ready for the next change over.

In the meantime, want to see the new tagline and picture?

#DoYouLoveIt or DO! YOU! LOVE! IT!?

Can you tell I’m a little SQUEE about it?

We’re talking Anna Giving Sven A New Sled(tm) SQUEEE!! !

I may have watched Frozen and Frozen2 a few times this weekend.




This morning was a million times easier to wake up – maybe that’s the pattern. Easy to get up, not as easy to get up, repeat.

But also yesterday was REALLY difficult. More than I wrote. I mean, looking back at the post, I’m like, oh, yeah, it’s obvious today’s going to be a rough day, but it really was a rough day.

I was Grumps McGrumperton the whole day, especially to P. (Sorry, P!) And I forgot to eat a few times. And I couldn’t say that I really didn’t want to go furniture shopping. So I just snapped instead. A lot. (Super sorry, P!) And then I took a nap sitting up in my OFFICE because I couldn’t admit how much I wanted to take a nap and also I didn’t want to take a nap in my bed because I knew I’d sleep until today.

But that power nap was so totally refreshing and I don’t think I could do it again unless I’m super tired and all the planets align just so.

Just kidding – I could do it again at the drop of a hat.

How do you think I survived all those flights?


Aww, now I’m all mopey about no travel.

Last night P and I were talking about wanting a vacation – cause even though I took a vacation a couple of weeks ago to do GISH it just isn’t a vacation when you’re just doing exactly what you were doing before, except now you don’t work during the day.

How’re you doing, Warriors?

Have you taken some time off? What did you do? Did you feel refreshed? How?

No, really, HOW?
