    Thanks :smile: Everybody have a beer/lemonade/appeljuice,...

    Plans? Grad school starts in a week. First year consist of taking a big course on all the major sub-disciplines (Mathematical physics, particle physics, solid state physics, astrophysics, quantum field theory,...). Year after that, I have to choose a thesis subject and a promoter.

    For now, I'll just enjoy this week as much as I can. :tongue2:

    congrats, hope grad school aint too tough for ya, which soccer team do you take for, Bruge, Standart de Liege, Anderlecht....... i myself take for Anderlecht, i just find it sad they lost lots of good players like Zetterberg, Sciffo, and i believe Razinsky(canadian) too, the Mpenza brothers are pretty good but last time i checked they played for Liege

    How come you know so much about Belgian football?
    I used to go for Anderlecht (the younger Mpenza plays there now BTW), but as of this year a new team from Brussels, F.C. Brussels has entered First Class. It's built on the relics of two older teams, Molenbeek & Strombeek. My great-granddad used to be the goalkeeper for Strombeek back in the thirties, so I've found my new home :smile:

    Seriously though, I don't follow football THAT much, but I keep an eye on it.

    The party's been going on for a while. Time for more interesting things...
    Cocktails & Longdrinks for all! We've got wodka, whisky, Bailey's, Safari, Rum, Pasoa, Amaretto, Port, and plenty of soda & orange juice, so suit yourselves :biggrin:

    Looks like you've started drinking already! :rofl: :tongue2:

    Congratulations Dimitri on making it through undergraduate school! I'm not yet of legal age so I'll take that orange juice, thank you! :smile:

    Hey, it's a Belgian party, so Belgian law applies. The legal drinking age is 16 I believe, but the practical age limit is something like 12...months :tongue2: So drink away my friend!
