Default Denmark meet

Around 8:30 last friday Lurk turned up at my place. After a cup of coffee we drove off to PD

*10 hours later*

I stand in front of PD appartment building and call him, to ask wich floor he lives on. "Hey PD, could you look outside? I can hear you talk from here." PD waves and tells me to come in and say hi. The first thing I see is some guy waving a sword at me, wich turned out to be Naz. And then a big surprise: what seemed like a 16 year-old girl standing there. It was that much a surprise because Lurk told me in the car that Isa would be staying in Copenhagen.
After telling Lurk I'd found them and getting the luggage from the car, we went to have some pizza. At the pizza place Isa and Naz got into a pretty heated discussion, that starten whith a remark from Naz about KoD. I told PD I thought the entire discussion would have fitted perfectly on the board, here.
That evening we had some beers/wodka/whiskey/cola/fanta, while playing some game with dice and a game Lurk came up with, wich involved throwing a non-existant ball around. It was really fun.

The next day after breakfast we went shopping for the evening, where we had a barbecue planned, and then we went to Copenhagen in Lurk's car.
After we found a parking spot, we walked through the city, for wich I'll let the picture speak for itself. I'll just say we went on a sightseeing bus and saw the little mermaid, the harbour and climbed a tower wich gave us a great view of the city.
PHOTO'S

After we got back to PD's town we were worried about possible rain and the hard wind, so we decided to not have a barbeque, but to just cook the meat in the kitchen. For this PD used a sause he got from Gil... It was quite taste, though a little hot with the steak, but both me and Isa had to stop eating the chicken after a few bites... Somehow Naz managed to finish my piece somepletely, with the help, but then had enough.
Lurk and PD, though, took some chicken, ate it... and then took some more... I just went with another (and less spicy) steak.
After that, we watched some DVDs: Monty Python and From Dusk Till Dawn .

That night Naz snored so loud, that Lurk decided to move his matress into PD's room. I think I was too tired to care...

The next morning after breakfast and chatting on Skype with Tru, Lurk and PD brought Isa to the trainstation to catch her train to the airport.
In the meantime, I and Naz started a Guild Wars session with Tru.

Currently we're playing PS2, and I'm writing this post and uploading my pics.

Nice pictures. Just a nitpick (should that be nitpicture, in this case?):
Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, somebody invented compas directions. Those might've been more useful in naming the "round tower view" pictures than the numbering system you now employed.

Well, iirc, no.1 starts at North-East. I went counter-clockwise after that.

Nice Dragon makes yummy spicey foods

Dutchies argue about who could eat the most of it

Mr. Frenzy's Death Wings are a puny, weak thing in comparisson...

and last, but not least, Sare can't tell direction... not sure i dare fly with him

good luck tomorrow anyway Sare... just remember: if you get the job; don't drop by

Great pics, guys. Where are Emma's? I already know PD was a slacker at taking pics.... hmph.

I enjoyed chatting with them a couple of times, and playing GW with Sare and Naz was a blast. It was hilarious listening in while PD played some point and click adventure game -- I have no idea what it was, but it was making them all howl with laughter. And, of course, singing the Pirate Song from Monkey Island on YouTube .... lol.

That spicy chicken sounds too hot for me, thanks, though I think PD is now planning some kind of showdown against the Dark Father's Death Wings... Should be fun -- to watch -- from a distance (to avoid the flame breath weapons).

I'm a little confused, how do you play scandinavian chess? Either I've actually never learned, or I have always lost big time and gotten hammered hard
