So guess who's gonna be the first European president? Guess?

Yep! Our very own Belgian Prime Minister, Herman Van Rompuy! With apologies to the UK people on my flist: HAH!

(Now don't get me wrong, I love the UK, I love my friends there, but articles like this have been annoying me to death these last few weeks. I know it's The Sun, I know I shouldn't take it seriously, but damn.)

Now: why is Van Rompuy good for the job? Because he managed to get Belgium out of a governmental crisis last year where everyone else failed. Becasue he's created a somewhat stable Belgium in these last few months. Belgium is... Let's be fair here, Belgium is one of the most confusing countries in the world. Seriously, most native Belgians don't understand it. We don't even try. To have someone who can keep everything under control... Well, I'm glad the guy became EU President, but I think we're gonna miss him here.

Still... Go Herman!

Our government fell. Again.

Well, it's not quite official yet, but prime minister Yves Leterme has gone to the king to propose the removal of the entire current government. This somehow makes me laugh in a 'look-at-this-messed-up-country-I-live-in' kinda way. And it's not even anything big this time, I don't even know exactly what the problem is now. But it's a result of the financial crisis. Big surprise.

Also, holidays! I'm actually kinda sad to see term end, 'cause we had this one amazing class and I'm sad to see it go. Even if I had to get up at an inordinately early hour to take it.

... And my arm hurts from writing and decorating Christmas cards all day. Anyone want a Christmas card?
