I really think so, think so think so.|
For sex, no drugs, some wine, no women, for fun, for sin, some you know-when there is dark.
Ok, that's enough of that.
Update: I shall remain permanently in the netherlands, and am on track for citizenship within 18 months to 2 years. I have re-structured my finances in such a way that the tax debt I need to pay, plus other burdens, will all be paid in correct order. Already in the last few months, I have found myself in better state financially then the previous 3 years.
I reside with Hyper, two danes, and 6 serpents in the attic of a friend. Hilversum, not too far from where I was before, is a wonderful city filled with joy, crime, crazy drivers, ludicrous amounts of shopping, and a huge post office (where I can get my registered mail during normal business hours, not just 0800-0930 in the morning), all within an easy walking distance. There's also anna's hoeve, a giant nature preserve, where the dogs can go for a serious romp, only 2.5km from our front door.
Before the month of November passes us by, the bathtub comes in from the garden (that was my project last weekend, acquiring the freestanding 200kg beast). Oh, it shall be grand. I have burdened my hosts with all sorts of changes, but for the most part, they are improvements for everyone. At the very least, these changes keep my junk out of the hallways leaving just enough room for feet.
Guests are a bit problematic, for overnights, because our attic is crammed with the essentials of business, dogs, snakes, and home cinemas. However, if you like the intimate setting of bedfloor, and want to take some long dog walks, then do ask about a weekend :)
Not yet sure how long it will be for finding a new place in my own name again, as I have to fight some battles on return of my rent deposit, and also be creative with paperwork. Lots of landlords now want some oddly high income proof before they rent. I guess the flood of immigrants from other EU nations has everyone changing their terms. Or perhaps they loose the standards when they see the "right kind of tenant". Eh, who am I to say. When I can, I will have my own home again, but for now, this is quite comfortable, and things are going smoother than I expected.
The final benefit of this new arrangement, fitness. All the stairs and dog walks are keeping me from the sedentary schedule I would often keep, and my muscles are thanking me for it by showing through more than ever!
