living the singles II

was at glenn's and dolly's the other day. they showed me peter andre's and jordan's attempt of a x-mas song. a single that god, but not the world, forgot. all of a sudden, i feel confident enough to sing karaoke sober.


living the singles

i just want to say that i'm shamelessly living the single life. and it's freakin' good! went to g-burg to see the dentist and had a shameless weekend, before i found out that i had two holes. in two teeth. so, i'm going back to g-burg in december to fix my teeth. and have another shameless weekend. single2mingle is my motto at the moment.
oh, and yeah, haven't told you about the date i had! so, the date... it went okey. he was sweet, but quiet. and seemed pretty nervous. it took him 3 beers before he dared have a full conversation. we've met again, but there won't be anything serious going on. not that i'm ready for that anyway.

i am on myspace. it's definitely not new, but i find it so smart, that i have to write about it. on myspace, i can, besides old and new friends, also find a lot of music artists, both famous and unknown. it's a smart way for artists to market themselves. on their homepage you can listen and download some well chosen singles. i actually found a swedish band in there that has really nice songs with fucked up funny lyrics.


dazed and freaked out

today is the date-day! just needed to say that i'm nervous, but that i'm going to dazzle! ;)
wish me luck!


yesterday's nice meal

after having a slow day at work, i went home half an hour earlier. and dreamt of a nice meal. a nice dinner. but what was to become friday's nice meal? i gotta say, i was kinda surprised myself! but the nice meal was a nice meal. =)

and i want to share it with you. it's not that hard to make:

3-4 tomatoes
½ leek
3 carrots
½ cauliflower
spinnage leafs
3 hoki fillets
sour cream with french herbs

i started by putting the oven on 200°C. then i sliced the tomatoes and chopped the rest of the vegetables in semi-small pieces. i made a bed of the sliced tomatoes, spread the leek and the carrots. on top of that, i put the fillets and spread the spinnage on the fish. topped it of by pouring/putting/smearing the sour cream so it covered the fish and adding the cauliflower on the sides. in the oven for around 40 minutes (or until the fish was done, actually). i served it with rice, which was delicious.

easy, breezy and most of all... yummie!

and here's a tip of what to listen to while cooking:


Flirting with the future

the renovation has started and i'm currently living in smurf town until it's all over. me, mom and dad went to buy tiles and clinkers. stopped by to see how the renovation progressed. and i had no kitchen. no bathroom. i did have a hole in the wall between. and even funnier, a big ol' hole right where the toilet used to be! and this weekend, i'm throwing out my old refrigerator and that nasty stove i got. i have been blessed with a family that cares and helps, cause my dad will be helping me as well as buying a new kitchen to the apartment!
my boss came over today to our workplace and we had a small chat. i didn't get my salary yesterday, but we quickly resolved that issue. to bad, the department that pays out the salary can't be as quick. but i'll get my money by tuesday at the latest. but that's not what our chat was about. it was more about my future at the company and my potentials. and there was little need of convincing her that i had potential, she made it clear that she was aware that the assignment i'm on right now isn't challenging enough. and we were on the same level that i needed to advance within the firm to stay challenged. maybe work as a teamleader. or at least something with greater responsability. so who knows where i might end after this assignment? but i justed stepped up on the ladder a bit. and that's happy.
last but not least, you all know that me and g-spotted ended our relationship. so, i'm single2mingle, as i say. and i've found myself a date! a cute and intelligent guy, a chemistry technician at KTH who seems really nice. now, i've only talked to him on the net, so i don't know really how he is, but from what i've seen and read, he seems like a pretty good guy. i'll give you guys an update on how the dating goes, but cross your fingers for me. ;)


adopting the dreamkid

i had a nice, but weird dream last night. i was living neighbours with my dear friend sassy s., who in the dream lived with her girlfriend in a house (as instead of an apartment, like she did when we were neighbours for real). all of a sudden she was pregnant and a second later, she had a son. an adorable little son, not unlike my cousin e:s adorable little son, bjarkir steinarr. a happy, nappy little kid. and then they got another kid. and vanished. with their new happy, nappy daughter. and left their son. i found him in the house, happy as ever and took care of him. and he became my own. right before i woke up, i was about to adopt him.

it's time to get kids.


my apartment echoes

well, i still have a kitchen, but i've packed everything belonging in the kitchen. and the bathroom. on monday the workers will start tearing the rooms apart. if you can call it rooms, it's more like small spaces. i've seen closets bigger than my kitchen. but it's my kitchen and i love it.

see, the pipes in the house of where i'm currently staying is in need of an exchange program. we get fresh new pipes visiting our house and the old ones takes a field trip to the junk yard. so this weekend is spent on packing and cleaning. today i have, with the help of two lovely smurfs, washed all of my clothes and packed both the kitchen and the bathroom. and some of the living room. my apartment echoes.

tomorrow is cleaning and moving my stuff to the lovely smurfs, whom i'll be staying with for the time being. and when i'm back, i'll have a whole new apartment (almost)! =)

so my biggest problem right now is which tile i should have... and it's a tricky one!


devils and angels

sweden has a new government. it's about a week old. and it's been surrounded with "scandals"! the ministers haven't paid their tv-licenses and they've paid their babysitters black! OH MY GOD!!! i gotta say, Sweden must be an unbelievably boring country! or at least we have very dull politicians. the people rage against the political world again! how dare they not add incometax on the babysitters salary? or skip paying tv-license, so that sweden can have independent radio and tv-stations? is this really the worst that our politicians can muster up? let's compare to the ongoing scandals in the states. just to take some, the republican party in the states has scandals! a former congressman who mailed young, male employees sexual males. the youngest one was 16. a senior congressman who took bribes. bribes!
bh, and in sweden, the dominating news of this week: the ministers that didn't pay for their tv-license! ta-ta-ta-ta!

news I like: the winner of this year's nobel peace award is a man who started a bank with the idea of financially helping the poor. awesome!



alla som läst svd igår vet att telefonlistor raderats av regeringen. svd berättar att regeringen har en policy om att all telefontrafik ska sparas i ett år. so får, so good. men det kruxiga är att i juli 2005, dvs strax ett halvår efter tsunamin, bestämmer 'nån chef' på regeringskansliet att telefontrafiken 'bara' ska sparas i ett halvår.

den fina loggfilen hade lätt kunnat visa om lars danielsson ringt det där viktiga samtalet som alla undrar över. men det gick inte. den informationen hade raderats.

lustigt ändå är att kansliet sen återgick till sin policy på ett år.
björn nordqvist, som verkar ta på sig ansvaret för raderingen konstaterar att det inte hade något med tsunamin eller lars danielsson att göra, utan att
det var en tid då det var lugnt och man kunde ta tag i frågorna


g-spotted no more

just need to say that g-spot's become a single mingle-person again. g-spotted and i decided that distance and different goals in life were obstacles that made our relationships hard to handle. to hard. the feeling is mixed about the break up. it's hard at times, knowing that 2½ years just got monkey wrenched and that my love is no longer my lover. but it also feels good when it comes to our differences and how this relationship was treated. it is better to give up something with nice memories than surrendering during war.



aches. i've got aches. from excessive excercise. from my work out last tuesday. and my god, is it a pain to walk these days! yesterday wasn't so bad, i walked for about an hour after work, with a friend to her place. it didn't hurt all that much and she made me a homecooked indian dinner. vindaloo. spicy, but not to much. mmm... and today. i thought about lying in bed all day. which i of course didn't, who in their right mind would call in sick out of aches caused by excercising??!
so at work, i moaned over my aches and got the advice to take a yoga lesson. happy goodlycky me, my gym had a yoga lesson today, so after work, i went to the gym. and had yoga.
and never would i dream of getting sweaty out of yoga. not so much, but that i'd break sweat for posing as a teapot?!? no..! still, it was nice.
i'm not sure if i'm going again, but i wouldn't be surprised. best of all though, is that i'm starting with my excercising again. so that i can loose all that extra weight i gained on the icy island with the incredibly tasty and delicious food. mmm... that people on iceland aren't fatter than any other nation in europe is a mystery to me. cause if i lived on iceland... i'd look like cartman after a week's consumtion of beefcake 4000.


a new beginning

since so much has changed during the past few weeks, i felt it was time for a change here aswell. i came home from the icy island of iceland a couple of weeks ago, which in itself was a big change. to live there and visit beloved ones and all. but when coming home, i didn't go back to school. i got a job and started exercising again after keeping a low profile this summer. the entire house that i live in is changing pipelines and stuff and so a new bathroom and kitchen is due soon. i've already gotten a new refrigerator and a freezer. and also has the ringht wing parties in sweden finally won the election, which i think is about f**king time! also will my first real pay come in the end of this month and that can be seen as a new beginning in one way. well, i hope you guys like it here. i think i'll stick to this for a while.
