I am getting old(er)

Bought more newspapers yesterday. The Independent on Sunday really made me laugh out loud and at the same time reminded me that I am not nineteen anymore (although still very energetic and youthful...just look at my sneaker collection..kidding....at least a bit.).

They had an article on the floods during the Glastonbury Festival. I would love to be able to have this attitude (Quote from The Indepdendent on Sunday):

Those worst hit were in a field close to a drainage ditch. They were forced to evacuate their tents when the water rose past waist height - and the top of their canvas homes - within minutes.

Gemma Lunniss, from Dagenham in Essex, who was in one of the flooded fields, spent Friday night in a tent used for acoustic performances after the acts had finished. "I was left a bit stunned when it happened, but we thought we'd go out and buy some pear cider, got as drunk as a skunk and danced the night away to forget about it,'' said Ms Lunniss, who is having her first Glastonbury experience.

Well, following the comment it is understandable that flood news are under enjoyment.

Dear "energetic and youthful" sneaker consumer Tommi,

I suggest you replace Le Coq Sportif on your Happy Consumer list with a way cooler brand than that, namely Karhu :)

Hey. True. But they do not sell them here. And if I am not mistaken, you had golden Le Coq Sportif's . But true, that was years ago.
Actually I prefer at the moment Dutch Quicks.
