Sooow! Here's my story!
Got up early, around 8 am-ish, and prepped to get to the bus/subway/train part of the day. I got a bus earlier, so I got in Amsterdam around 11 am. Got a slice of pizza for breakfast. Yummy!
Just walked around a bit, asking people if this was "Stationsplein" (I wasn't sure about it). I had been looking for them (Max, Xavier (which, I learned, was not pronounced as Ex-Aviur, but as Za-Vjee) and Robin (Havoc)) for about half an hour, till I saw a red baseballcap. Robin had told me he'd be wearing one. And then there was this tall guy, with a beard, and long hair, all dressed up in black. Xavier. We teamed up and started to explore Amsterdam.
Breaking the ice.
Well, I had like, 5 euros in my wallet, and while we were walking down the road that lead from th station, I saw a Ben & Jerry's ice-cream stall. I LOVE Ben 'n Jerry's! And the lasts time I was in Amsterdam, I forgot to get some. So I got some. Xavier, Max and Robin were looking at me with a weird face.
"Who eats ice-cream at such an early hour?"
"Well, I do! I had pizza for breakfast!"
"You had pizza for breakfast? You're weird..."
So we continued to stroll around Amsterdam. Xavier was desperately searching for a...
CD-shop. Yes, a CD-shop. But that was long after we passed one. Eventually, we ended up at some baza(a?)r, and found a guy who sold CDs. Nothing for Xavier though. Also, I still had to find an ATM machine, cuz I spent my last money in the ice-cream... But anyways, we were gettin' hungry.
On to the fast-food-restaurant!
As Havoc said, by the time we found an ATM machine, we had finished our circle, and had to start all over again. Eventually, we came to the B-king, and the M-Donalds. And we had to choose. Robin thought Max wanted to go to the MD, but it turned out me, Xavier and Max wanted to go to the BK. So we ordered our food. I ordered a kingsize menu as usual. But fir the very first time of my life, I didn't finished it. Probably because of the pizza and the ice-cream...
Mistah Tigah Lovah!
What to do next?
And then there was our problem... What to do next? Madame Tussauds? Both Xavier and Robin didn't like that idea, so we strolled further along the streets of Amsterdam. But then Xav came up with the Idea to see Fahrenheit 911.
But the problem was, there was no cinema around. So I asked some hotdog-salesman for directions.
"Keep walking into that direction" he said.
And eventually, we came to a cinema.
Only to discover that F911 wasn't running in ANY cinema in Amsterdam.
Right after we got out of the cinema, Max was called on his cellular. He had to leave in 1 hour. So we walked back to the station.
SPREAD THE WORD!
As Robin said, when we came at the station, there were some christians (Thank Odd my name is Sander, and not Christian) spreading the word. Some dude gave me a pamflet of God. Or something. The pic on it, was Jesus on his cross, covered in blood. Then this guy comes up to me, and asks me if I'm Dutch. So he gave me a Dutch version. And me with my big mouth said:
"But the other (the left one) pic is much cooler!"
Thus showing my disinterest for religion.
And the dude was totally freaking out, and we really had to laugh out loud!

After that, Max left, and we walked back to the Christ-lovers, and I made some more pictures.
Xav with a cross...

Guess which foot belongs to who?
Everything comes to an end
Eventually, we all split up, and went home. But Robin and I found some weird sign:
It says: You are here. But where was here?
Robin under the sign, making it correct.
After this last laugh, we went home.
And now I am writing this report!
We had fun!
I'm watching you...
- You're a dick, Mojo.
- And you're still a dick.
