Morons

OK, let's get some people offended. I'm realling starting to believe that the common beliefe that americans (USA:ans) are morons is true. Why? Because so called Full Screen DVDs are still being made in 2008, which means a lot of NTSC DVDs are fucking crap. The people with 4:3 TVs aren't the ones interested in movies, let them have the letterboxed crap.

Winter Vacation

My winter vacation has begun, and I started out by getting out of bed at 7 AM to do laundry. Luckily I only had to start to machines and then I could go back to a warm bed. I had to get up in an hour to continue doing laundry though... When I was finished with that, I had a light breakfast and then I went for a run. The weather wasn't as good as last time, but on the other hand I ran almost twice the distance this time so it was a good run after all.

After that busy morning I thought it'd be a good idea to watch a movie, so I loaded up Drive-In Massacre, brought out some delicious cured reindeer meat (I don't know what it's really called in English, but it's "gravat reninnanlår") and set myself in the sofa. Unfortunately I only saw half of the movie before I fell asleep.

Facebook

It's funny, the moment I changed my relationship status on Facebook from single to undefined I stopped getting those "30+ and single? Find dates here" ads. When I change my status to being in a relationship I started ads about loans and hair loss.

Christmas is coming

Yesterday me and M set out to make some christmas candy. We started out by making some tasty subs though, 'cause we were both hungry. After eating the subs we made lussekatter and knäck. Phil Spector's Christmas Album and Smashing Pumpkin's Siamese Dream were played, glögg was served and we had a very cozy time in general. Then we discovered, to our surprise, that the time was half past eleven, so we decided on making the other candy on another day.

Tonight we're going to eat julbord after work, so I won't be seeing M tonight. :(

I See a Darkness

It's strange how things turn out. Yesterday I heard Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's I See a Darkness. I realized that I've listened to that album in my darkest hour, during the brightest time of the year and also in my brightest hour, during the darkest time of the year, those moments less than half a year apart.

Well, what I'm trying to say is that I'm really happy now and life couldn't be better.

Winter weekend

Ever since autumn turned into winter I've been putting off buying warmer running clothes. Partly because the hobby I figured would cost virtually nothing has in fact cost a bit after all, but also because I'm not very comfortable with asking about training clothes in the shops. I'm a bit noob still. Anyway, yesterday I went to some stores and bought the stuff I need to go running when it's under 0°C. I look like a "tomtenisse" in black in them...

After that I paid a visit to Jonny & Jenny to pick up my Xbox 360 controllers, but I ended up staying all day. It was a very nice day, with everything looking like a christmas card and all. I even got to see a Lucia performance by their kids.

This morning I slept late, got up and put on my new running clothes. Then I put on some christmas music and did nothing in particular for about an hour or so while I slowly woke up. After that I went running around "sportfältet", passing people walking their dogs in the snow. It was really great run, like being in a christmas card. Coming in after the run, showering and eating ham and cheese on toast for breakfast was pretty nice too.

Now I'm going to call a certain lady and see if she's come home from her horses yet.

Snow

There's quiet a lot of snow outside right now, and it looks like it might last past christmas. Everything's so damn cozy right now, be it sitting at work eating strawberry in champagne marzipan or being at home, cuddling in the sofa. Yup, there is cuddling going on nowadays.

Date

I had a date last night. First we played two very even games of pool. We weren't exactly the best players in the place, but it was very fun nonetheless. After that we went to Stationsgatan 1 and had dinner. We sat there for quiet some time talking and eating, and the mood was so relaxed and nice. It's been a long time since I met someone that's so interesting to talk with.

About last night

I decided to go out last night, and I had a great time. Have spent all of today recuperating and I'm as happy as a lolcat with a cheezburger.
