Goodbye Queen B, Hello King W-A!

qday1

The 30th of April is for every country in the world a regular day. Except for the Netherlands. The night before we all get drunk and the next day we either sell our entire household with a huge hangover on the flee market or we buy somebody elses entire household also with a huge hangover. Ow and eat churros! Like during the World Cup we all dress up red/white/blue or completely orange. Like maniacs. We must love our Queen a lot, don’t we!

No, I’m not kidding, everybody in Holland will wear something orange and we all act like true royalists. We love our Queen and we love to celebrate that with a lot of beer and crazy orange outfits.

He combined those two things and *Boom* a new idea was born! He painted his sneakers and  posted this on Facebook. It was such a success, he immediately got orders. Continue reading

How to not conquer your shoe addiction

Internet is the best invention ever, but sometimes also the worst. Many people write a lot of crap on their websites. The most horrible ones are the ones named something with wiki. I’m not talking about wikipedia because that’s brilliant, I use it all the time when I teach. But I’m talking about the rest. For those who don’t know: Wiki means that everybody can change/add content, most of the time, lot of crap is uploaded.

I was a bit wandering online, looking for things to write about and I stumbled upon this article from WikiNut (They should change it into WikiNot) about conquering a shoe addiction. I laughed so hard I couldn’t breath, it’s horrible (no offence). Below are the tips she (or he? I dunno) gave, with my comments.
