The Cabinet Falls

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Oct-16-2002

And on this dreary day, the Dutch Cabinet falls apart.

  1. kismet Said,

    this has nothing to do with the dutch cabinet, but there was a band from your neck of the woods (neck meaning country, anyway) called “Undeclinable Ambuscade” (or just Undeclinable, depending on who you talk to, they’re a punk band) playing in our town last weekend. It was pretty funny, listening to all the people from our town speak really horrendous english to the band members (because they don’t speak french, and I highly doubt anyone OTHER than the band members speak dutch, so heh).

    (besides, they all get a kick out of my french mistakes, so I figure I am owed amusement)

    Anyway, it was a side note, but I thought of you. The end.

  2. sue Said,

    kim- I confess, I always love hearing Han’s brothers speaking english. he-he.

  3. Brian Said,

    Shows you where my head is this week, I thought you meant a kitchen cabinet.

  4. sue Said,

    Uh, let me double check my spelling here. Spelling is right, probably my grammer then.

    Or has it been a very bad week for you indeed ?

  5. Karan Said,

    Quick teach me Dutch so I can understand what happened to the cabinet.

  6. sue Said,

    Karan- instead, give me a refresher course in English !

    The government here basically decided that there was no way that the recently elected members could work together, so have called it a day. We will be having new elections in January.

    I wonder if ‘parliment’ is a better word than ‘cabinet’ ? I’m getting all of my news in Dutch,so I probably am picking up words that are actually Dutch and thinking that they are English.

    It happens all of the time.
