Yesterday, when walking through Ghent, we discovered a new shop specialised in coffee and tea: Simon Lévelt on the Kleine Vismarkt (nr. 5) in Ghent. It’s a small shop easily passed, but really worth a visit.
From their choices we took home a 250g package of “Espresso Del Barista Bio” (espresso of the espressomaster), and a package of Pai Mu Tan, white chinese tea. We also got a freebee: Whitepoint mix, a tea mix of Bai Hao Yenzhen tea and Oolong tea.
We just had a cup of the coffee – it’s close to the best espresso we’ve had ever.
We went to see Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the other week.. a good (if rather grim) musical!

I’ve recently discovered a new python based blogging client for Symbian S60 3rd edition based phones.
It’s still very beta, but it works nicely!

Yesterday, Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: A Space Oddysey” and other great works, passed away at the age of 90. He’ll be sorely missed both by the science community and the millions of fans he had.
Today, Hugo Claus, a Flemish novelist, poet, playwright, painter and film director, died at the age of 78. He was considered to be one of the most important contemporary Dutch language authors.
Sad week for the world! :(
On the 4th of March 2008, Gary Gygax – creator of D&D, which laid the basis for the tabletop RPG’s as we know them today – passed away, age 69.
May he rest in peace.

Since last weekend I’ve been stuck with a nasty cold, reaching climax on wednesday when I bailed work at noon and went to the doctor. Sickleave until friday, and some painkiller (perdolan) and a coughsirup (mjummm.. not!)
Friday I was finally rid of it, and today (being sunday) I woke up with a totally inflamated throat making anything related to the throat nearly impossible due to the high level of pain… damnit!
Another doctor’s visit later I’m on Cataflam and Neogolaspetine spray, and two more days sickleave… meh.
