Who’s life to fantasize about now?

The visits to the swimming pool are getting less entertaining…

Today’s higlight was a man, about 55-60 years old, with a Thailand tan, chewing gum, “running” in his Wet West.

It made me react. But it’s not entertaining. Not at all.

Next week I’ve to visit the swimming pool four times. I’ve tickets that have to be used between 09:00 and 15:00 och weekdays. Next week is my last “vacation” week.

At the swimming pool.

The lady of today:
With blue eyeliner and red lipstick.

Is it so, that pensioners (widows/widowers) use the place to find a new partner?
I can see the advantages; persons with good health and condition (for their age).

However, red lipstick on thin and wrinkled lips at the swimming pool?

To do 2009; 4.

During this year I want to try new things. It can be food. It can be an activity. It can be almost anything. I don’t want to be stuck in old tracks. However, I take it easy the first time. And start with an easy target; three new things during a year.

I didn’t have any plan for 2008, but I did try some new things during the year:
I drowe Gokart for the first time in my life.
Thanks to G (or is he the one to blame?) I tasted shrimps. Doesn’t tast too much. I can’t say I like the consistence. But now I know that I can eat shrimps. If I’ve to. If my future mother in law, when I find one, cooks me some food with shrimps, for example.
I could call myself engineer :).

One day I’ll be like her. Or Not.

The coolest lady in the swimming pool today:

Tousled hair (just from the bed).
Chewing gum.
Headband a la Björn Borg. (Why?!?)
Swimming in the middle, and making passing slower swimmers more difficult, when everybody else swim after the anticlockwise rule.

Back.

Back home. After 19 days in the north. 19 of very relaxing days. I was able to leave all work thoughts and other worries at home. In the north, I just existed.

But now I feel it was already time to come back to the reality. New year.

Up in the air, somewhere north of Göteborg.

I prefer to travel (From A to B) alone. I had to get used to it once. Now I find it relaxing.
After I learnt that the ”turbulence” doesn’t mean bumps in the air but strong wind from the side, I don’t worry for that either.

Isn’t it amazing; the fact that humans can get tons of kilograms to fly?
We’re served hot drinks thousands of kilometers above the earths surface.

Still nameless.

I said it for more than one year ago already; it’s a small big town.

Last night I met him again. I was trying to find my friends in an overcrowded nightclub. Suddenly I heard “Hi, Finnish”. It took a few seconds before I understood who he was.

As cute as last time.
Single now.
For an unknown reason I happened to turn him down.

Probably better, but I just didn’t have the time to learn.

New features in WordPress.

I had even difficulties to get the previous post published…

One other feature: I’ve to approve comments.

I don’t know how to write in bold, italic, etc without using HTML, anymore.
I don’t know how to use the spell check anymore.

Interesting notes. After 10h long After Work.

We began with Taco Buffet in Excet. After many drinks for 48 Sek, cheap beers, dancing and chatting, we spent the last hours in Deep. I didn’t feel notable drunk at any point of the night. Just the opposite to previous weekend…

I really do hope I don’t lose the contact with my collagues/friends I’ve today.

My Home, 081129.

Small steps. For each step a little closer to the goal.

My sofa. With (for me) brand new table. Finally I’ve somewhere stable to put my plates and glasses on.

Where the chairs are leaning towards the wall (and waiting for next weeks Glögg-evening), I’ll have a table and two bar chairs. As soon as I get them.

Nice persons do exist.

Last week, on Friday morning.

I was walking to the bus stop. On time. When I suddenly saw the bus arriving to the stop. I started to run. But it was the first day with minus degrees. After a rainy night. Parts of the road was covered with ice, and I didn’t dare to run too fast. That resulted in me missing the bus with just s few seconds.

Annoying.

But then a car stops at the bus stop.

I realise that this person most probably is going to offer me a ride.

Is it a woman?
That’s my first thought. Sad. But you can’t blame me.

It was a woman, and she did offer me a ride to the city. She had seen me missing the bus. She felt sorry for me.

What a nice woman!
She surtenly made her one-good-deed that day.

Twilight.

Not as scary as I worried it would be.

I liked it.

But it’s IN as well!

I’ve been told that I wear black clothes too often. I’ve to admit that there might be something behind that statement.

This weekend my parents have visited me, again, and helped me with the flat. Guess the colors? Dark grey. My flat is going to be black/grey/silver. Should be so me, right?

As soon as I’ve cleaned after the painting/drilling/… I’ll upload some pictures!

I feel like saying…

Congratulations.

And the mysterious person was…

The flowers were from Emil, my estate agent.
“We hope you feel at home.”

Haha.

What an anticlimax.

Who?

Somebody has sent me flowers.

But who?

I know who I hope didn’t do it…

At 18.00 I’ll know.

Tonight.

Sushi, first friends in my flat, Beer and Fidel Castro’s, snacks, chatting, and a night out.

Drama at swimming pool.

I enter the “sauna” (I’d call it drying room), where an older woman just has entered directly from the pool and now is standing and drying herself with a towel.

– You’ve to take of your bikini in the sauna.
I do know that’s what you’re supposed to do. But this sauna doesn’t have any sign stating it. And only a few care about the rule, in this sauna. The sauna isn’t much more warmer than the shower area either. And I only go there for a few seconds, to strech. Therefore I’ve decided to ignore what I’ve learnt.
– Yes, but this room isn’t warm.
– It doesn’t matter.
– I see you’ve hang your swimsuit here to dry. What’s the difference?
-…

Arghh. Whining old women.

Cottage cheese, tuna, and pesto.

Have you ever tried to keep cottage cheese mixed with tuna and pesto in the fridge for… let’s say.. weeks?

I have. And I can tell you that it starts to smell really bad.

So now you know, and don’t have to try.

One more weekend has passed.

Monday again, in a few hours.

I’ve done nothing today. Didn’t even go out to buy something good to eat. Instead I’ve tried to survive on what I could find at home. That’s lingonberry bread, juice, apples, carrots, and cookies. But hey, I had hamburger for breakfast!

I met with my friends at E and A’s place. We had pizza and a few drinks, before we headed for the nightclubs. First stop was at Tranquilo. A Latino nightclub with nice music and really good Mojitos! A mixture of people. Not only Latinos, as you could think. When we had had enough of Latino music, we changed to Deep. A nightclub with radio hits from the speakers. The rest of the party night was spent on the dance floor. Before going home, we made a stop at Burger King. Some time after 06:00 I took the bus back home.

FYI.

Marabou Premium Lemon & Ginger.

“Filled dark chocolate with sparks of lemon and a hint of ginger.”

Way too much lemon taste, in my opinion.
