TMI – Dressed

anigif_enhanced-28985-1406130456-26WHAT COMES BETWEEN YOU AND THE REST OF THE WORLD?
1. Do you wear underwear or do you free ball? Why or why not?
I do wear underwear, it feels better that way.

2. What’s your style? Boxers, briefs, thongs, panties?
Boxer-briefs, that stretches 5 ways.

3. Colors, patterns, superheros, etc?
At the moment this style only comes in black or red, I choose the black ones with small red details. BTW the red ones have small black details.

4. If and when you’re living together, do you match or not? Is laundry a consideration?
I live alone but I took in consideration a whole pink outfit in case I washed the red boxer-briefs with the rest of my stuff.

5. Is there anything as sexy as a classic brief tan line on a bubble butt?
No there isn’t, just don’t look for me on the beach or another sunny spot to suntan. I may have colored arms and some color on my face but for the rest I’m as pale as cooked chicken.

How much of an exhibitionist are you?
Not at all, you should re-read # 5 again.

A Day of National Mourning

It’s a bit odd, on one of the warmest days of the year a chill goes through a nation. The last time we had a Day of National Mourning was 52 years ago, just after the death of the Mother of the Fatherland, the late Queen Wilhelmina († 1962).

You’ve all seen the news and the impact on our small country is enormous, one way or the other we all know some of the 193 deceased, out of 18 million!

Here’s a small impression. In the coming days more remains will be flown in, they all get the same treatment as what we saw today. A long line of hearses will travel over closed off highways towards the barracks in Hilversum.


The Day After… Pink Monday

Alas, I can’t show you photos from my own camera, after two shots the memory chip was overloaded, must have been the abundance of pink. just click a photo for a broader view.

and some later additions from another camera.

Here are some shots from the website of Brabants Dagblad

And if you just hadn’t enough…

Pink Monday in Tilburg

rozemaandagWe have Roze Zaterdag, (Pink Saturday), first Saturday in July, which is the start of Pride in the Netherlands. Every year another city is the host. The next big pink event is today its Roze Maandag, or Pink Monday which is always held in Tilburg, during the largest fair in Europe. A celebration of diversity. Earlier this morning a pink train left Amsterdam, on the train the party had already started, and without switching in Den Bosch (which you normally have to do to reach Tilburg) the passengers arrive in an hour or so.

The owners of bar ‘De Engel van Amsterdam’ have arranged for a coach. We’ll leave Amsterdam around noon for our day of fun on the Tilburg Fair. When they heard I was coming too their first reaction was “Can you walk that distance?” And I said “No, but I have all the time in the world to get me to the first bar with a terrace and see the crowd go by.” I’m not going to do stupid things, like bungy-jumping or getting drunk.

The dresscode is pink of course, so I’ll fit in with my pink cap, pink shirt and pink rimmed umbrella (the forecast is rain).
