    First trip in 2016 is again to Amsterdam - Charles Aznavour is (hopefully) giving two concerts in a row (21st and 23rd) as he recheduled those in late November and primo December.

    And before I pack - it's 14 hours and a half hours before plane will take off - and take a bite and take a short nape before I call a cab for the airport, I am trying to tie some loose ends i.e. to make all waiting moves at gameknot.com and all moves at RHP with less then 4 days left time.
    (Short trip, only 4 days.)

    I will have to manage hardcore games on the road on my iphone.

    And I am already feeling travel fever.

    As ambientally (Enoish /I made up a new adjective/ music) is pouring out from the radio, I soon will search three suitcases of mine in order to find clean unused socks for the trip. Acuweather.com says it would be no snow in Amst in several few days, cold (3-8 degrees) but dry.

    In between of two Aznavour gigs there will be a punk night, in a club, with lesbian milf Dutch band Cracked Up. I hope to good hard core/melodious punkrock music til 01.00 clock and then slow drinking in the bar til closing at ca. 04.00 O'clock.

    I will have a reserve leather jacket in the suitcase for that occasion.

    Why not use your vacation days to prevent being timed-out?

    Well, since we're sharing:

    I will soon finish up my work day, return home, sit on my ass, watch some tv, go to sleep, go to work, find new ways to procrastinate, finish up work, repeat ad infinitum, repeat ad infinitum.

    I recognize the problem of finding clean socks, though.

    It isn't cool to use vacation days for hard core games.

    Underpants are overrated.

    Who cares about chess? Smoke lots of dope, do shrooms, sleep
    around, live fast and die young. At least that's Stephen Hawking's
    credo, so he must be right.

    I arrived.
    I couldn't sleep as it happens often before the trip, I watched God Shepherd, Robert de Niro's movie about origins of CIA.

    I packed all I wanted to in cobalt blue Carpisa suitcase, and dead tired got out 04.00 AM local time to wait for the cab.

    I snorted in the plane for 2 hours... I was awake only to eat junkie flight food.

    Arrival was late 1 hour due fog in Amsterdam.

    But, it doesn-t matter, no rush, Aznavour's gig is to-night.

    This time no stress at the Schiphol: suicase arrived quickly on the belt 15, the guy who stampled my passport didn't have insulting, intimidating attitude, and no bomb dog welcomed me to sniff my Richard and other body parts.

    Nice surprise.

    Now I am drinking Hertog Jan specialbier dark beer in Van Daele cafe.

    I will walk from Amsterdam Centraal to the Museum Quarter (*to save the money, fordi my budget for this trip is limited).


    To-night is Charles Aznavour's concert No 1,
    Before that I plan to have early dinner at Mr. Tong, an average but cute Chinese restaurant, because they have great Chinese wine which is in fact brandy.

    And I will play chess on line,

    At a moment heis hands trambled and he looked distracted, but then he made a few jokes on his own account, took a jacket off and began to dance!! he determined - I could see - to be master of the stage one more time.

    you are right. And since poepel seem not to have an idea how to get Information here a copy past from the (German) Wikipedia:

    Charles Aznavour ( anhören?/i; eigentlich Schahnur Waghinak Asnawurjan, armenisch Շահնուր Վաղինակ Ազնավուրյան / Šahnowr Vałinak Aznavowryan, auch Charles Aznavourian; * 22. Mai 1924 in Paris, Frankreich)
