I assumed I would have some more time to write this post, but I've been working on a time consuming history essay all morning, I still need to bake a pie, and I have to make sure I'm ready for my birthday party tonight! So unfortunately this post won't be as elaborate as I promised yesterday. To get back to your comments, the concert was indeed fantastic, they played for more than an hour, although I wouldn't have minded if they played all night. And I got to see Alex Kapranos up close, eventhough at first we didn't even realise it was him, which was quite confusing and funny at the same time. Anyway, they did this great drum routine (something pretty similar to this) at the end of their song Outsiders which was unbelievably cool.

On a completely different note, last weekend we had our first days of snow here in the Netherlands. I just loved it! I've always enjoyed snow, it reminds me of Christmas, which is my absolute favourite holiday of the year. Talking about Christmas, I've already started listening to christmas songs on my ipod. George and Mariah are my new best friends for the next few weeks.

This post is so lovely! And that camera must be heaven. Thank you for the sweet comment- I must say, I don't particularly like anything by the new pornographers except for that song that I posted- but that song is one of my very favorites of all time.

I hope you're well!
