OMG!!! I can't believe it!!!

R unning that red light ended up costing 123.50 EUR - 100 for the actual ticket, 20 "Gebuehr" (WTF?) and 3.50 for processing or something. It was 1 point off my license.

In other news, my work contract ended at the end of April. No more funding for the project at the moment, so I'm out of work. I knew this was coming and scheduled a month-long trip to the US for this month. When we went in to the TK (health insurance company) to sign up for voluntary (paid entirely by us) insurance, the guy there said I should go register with the unemployment office and they will pay for my health insurance. But, he said we had to do it within a month after the end of my job. So, we ran in there today during a bunch of other errands to try to sign up, and the lady there wouldn't have it, since I'm leaving on vacation tomorrow. Obviously I can't take a job while I'm away, so it makes sense, but the other guy told us we had to do it within a month! I guess not - she said I can come back in mid-June when I return. I hope I don't get back only to be told I missed a deadline!

I swear I will post the rest of the Dutch stuff sometime...
