Am I surprised? Not really. I used to think that me and my parents were really idealistic (because of, y'know, them being pinkocommies) but then I realised that it's just what we want in theory. We know what to expect in real life.
Also. Eurosoccer. Ahahaha! So the Netherlands-Italy ended up in 3-0 (WTF?) and now, seriously the whole of Rotterdam is just happy. Like, really really happy. (It helps that the sun is shining). And ORANGE OMG. Seriously, all the streets are decked in so much orange, it hurts the eyes. O_O
Also, Netherlands-France is on my birthday. Woe. Now I'm sure nobody is going to remember it. :(
Edit: So now we can't even send money to Iran. Jesus, it's for my grandmother's rent, not for some terrorist. And plz, stupid bank, if you're not doing any deals with Iranian banks (and haven't done so in two years), at least have the smarts to put it on your site. Grah!
