Except they'd probably not be in cattle class and you'd never know they were on the plane :P :roll:

I guess they arrive Friday am, 2 days before us. Hopefully they'll wait to do the big flea market until Sunday so we can shop for cheesy trinkets with them. :P Oh they are going to be there for Koninginnedag! Don't get too wild guys and wait to take the romantic nighttime canal cruise until the blonde and the redhead arrive. :waggle: (Jemaine will love it, I think there is unlimited free cheese!)

I'd let Jemaine sit next to me on the plane, providing he doesn't snore.

I had one long epic dream about being in Europe and being completely disorganized about everything, losing my key, can't find the place to change money, missing breakfast at the hotel, friends going off without me, not knowing what to wear. So that's it. I'm up early and I'm doing the dreaded test pack. :nails:

And why do you assume I'd be in "cattle class"? :hrmpf: (I totally would be but that's beside the point.) :lol: ;) Besides - word gets around on an airplane, if there was someone famous in first class I'm sure I'd hear about it. There's only so much that blue curtain can hide, lol. Then it's just a simple matter of knocking one of the flight attendants unconscious, stealing her uniform, and barricading myself in first class with the beverage cart. See, I've got it all worked out. ;)

Ugh, those dreams are THE WORST. :hug: I'm sure the trip will go smoothly and you and Jemaine will be sharing free cheese in the moonlight before you know it.

:lol:

Even if they did try to be sneaky and get on the plane last (After all us "cattle class" folks pass the first class folks on our way to the back)...word would get around...

Oh what a lovely image mock. :)

If there is a recognizable figure on the plane people will surely seem them. It's pretty cramped quarters & there's no hiding or you could see them in the waiting area. Johnny Rotten was sitting in the waiting area with us on my first trip to England. We chatted with him about lord knows what. Turns out he had the seat in front of me (the last seat in first class, I was the first seat in coach, the bulkhead, coz I had a knee immobilizer on and needed room for my leg to stretch out). He saw me as he was sitting down and said "I see the girl with the broken leg got a good seat." :lol:

Johnny not-so-rotten. 8)

Cool story.

I hate those kinds of dreams.....it's all about worries that'll turn out to be unfounded though. :) Hope the test-pack went well.

mock, I like how you think, girl. :thumb:

It's going on, things are laid out. Little plastic bottles are being filled. Does clear purple plastic work or will the security nazis only allow clear plastic? I think I know the answer to that question. Fudge!

Safe travels to you all! I can´t believe the guys chose to arrive actually on Queen´s Day. Madness!

Oh, and apologies to those of you arriving this weekend. It´s probably going to look a mess, because a lot of the street cleaners and garbage removal workers went on strike yesterday.

They have arrived Amsterdam safely.

Just saw this tweet:

RT @bicyclemark: Jemaine from the conchords just spotted in vondelpark riding a bike. (via @AliBess) Vondelpark is in Amsterdam btw.

Hey SW, Nonchers & Secret Cheri get your bikes and head out to Vondelpark! Haha.

I think that may be the big park across from our hotel but I'm not sure.

Heh. That was me sort of. I´m AliBess and my friend is bicyclemark. Suddenly I wish I lived in Amsterdam. I think the guys should take a side trip to Utrecht. :wink: :wink:

Its very near to the centre. Its a very long park, lots of ponds, green areas and trees. But does have a cafe in the centre to people watch from 8)
