Bullet Sunday 176… Day Nine: Amsterdam

Posted on Sunday, March 28th, 2010

Dave!This morning I had all kinds of ambition to get up early and wander around Prague for a few hours before I had to head to the airport. This didn't happen. Instead I stayed in bed and decided to actually be on vacation for a few hours. Which meant doing absolutely nothing. And so here I am now back in the Netherlands so I can blog Bullet Sunday and pack my suitcase. Vacation, it would seem, is officially coming to an end.

   
• Mucha Mucha. Prague is home to the Alphonse Mucha museum, where you can see original works of Art Nouveau by the master himself. Of all the amazing sights I've seen in the city, I'd have to say visiting this museum was the highlight. Being able to walk into a building and see art so beautiful that you have to struggle not to crap your pants should be what life is all about...

Mucha Autumn Print

   
• No Dumbassery. Yesterday was "No Tech Day" which is about as stupid as it gets... right up there with the bullshit idiocy of "Shutdown Day" from three years ago. My iPhone has completely revolutionized most all aspects of how I travel, and I cannot fathom going back to the dark ages where I didn't have instant access to maps and important information wherever I'm at... especially when I'm in a foreign country on my own. Supposedly giving up tech gadgets is going to "improve the quality of your life," but that's such a load of crap. So long as the tech gadgets don't become your life, and act only to supplement it, wouldn't that be a good thing? I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before these people invent something even more asinine... like "No Toilet Paper Day."

   
• International Disaster. I see that the heinous Jersey Shore reality show is now being distributed here in Europe. The thought of other countries judging the USA by what they see on this show fills me with horror and no small amount of shame. I can only guess that this will set back international relations by decades...

Da Shore!

   
• Tenth Photo. I was tagged by Josh is Trashy to participate in a photo meme. Here are the rules...

  1. Go to your first photo file and pick the 10th photo in it.
  2. Tell the story behind the photo.
  3. Tag 5 other people to do likewise.

My first photo file is called "0000 Dave Misc" which is basically a catch-all folder for stupid images of me that don't really go with any other photos. This is the worst possible folder to be looking through, And the tenth photo is not really the one I would choose if forced to display one on my blog...

Dave in Hawaii

This would be a scanned photo of my first trip to Maui with my friends. I have no idea what's going on here, but I'm pretty sure it's just me being very, very happy to be in Maui. Probably while drunk. I have no excuse for the short-shorts except that it was the 80's. Yes, I know it's a sexy look for me.

Unlike photo number eleven, where I have an unfortunate hair-cut and even more unfortunate round sunglasses. There's no "sexy" to come out of this mess...

Dave at Crescent Bar

Oh well. I'm afraid that I am rubbish at tagging people with these things, but if you are so inclined to embarrass yourself, please do.

   
And, on that note, I suppose I should sign off and try to get some rest. Tomorrow is going to be a very long day.

    Yay! You were the last person I tagged to post a pic! Is that the rest of your pantalonez in ur hand?!

  2. Robin says:

    I love Mucha’s work! I am so jealous that you got to see them in person…

  3. claire says:

    I feel certain you’re singing, “The hills are alive…” in your Maui shot, which makes me happy to think as unlikely as it may be.

  4. Karl says:

    Jersey Shore in the rest of the world. Ugh. You’re right, just what we need to help with diplomatic relations.

    Wonderful shorts. Are those OP corduroys?

  5. martymankins says:

    Nice retro photos of you.

    I wonder how other countries feel about Snookie or if they even care?

  6. Mitchell says:

    All good things must come to an end! Enjoy that 13-15 hour flight back!

  7. Hilly says:

    Those shorty shorts totally make you The Situation. Now then, why don’t you ever wear those when you come visit me, dammit???

  8. TSMCrazy says:

    Dear Dave,

    I think of you often…

    Wait. No, let me start over. I really do think alot when you post these fantastic vacation pics. Some folks aren’t into that and I get it. But to me, I get to live vicariously through you and wonder what would have been if I had chosen to get a useful degree instead of birthing babies at 17 and going that route.

    Thanks for the stunning visuals and sharing your stories with us.

    And contrary to your opinion, there is MUCHO hotness in the pic with the round glasses and retro haircut. And that hotness? Is DAVE.
