Cocktail Bar - Manesa

2008-08-23 - Restaurants


When it comes to actually execute stuff that my friends and I decide to do, we really suck... Yesterday we planned on watching the fireworks, again, and guess what, we missed ‘em - again!

There's a carnival going on in town which results in hundreds of stands and even more people running around with beer cans in their hands. I'm not really into that kind of party, so my friends and I went to our favorite bar Manesa, and ordered in a few drinks. I had an acid drink with strawberries and lime, a special frozen daiquiri served during the carnival which included strawberries, pineapple, and raspberry, and I finished off with a damn delicious Baileys drink with Koskenkorva and pure cream!!!

How did you spend your late-night hours?


München Hoben

2008-08-22 - University


After taking the test I was pretty surprised to find out that Emil had fixed two tickets for me and Albert to München Hoben - a huge party with ~5000 students from the University of Linköping and Norrköping. Albert and Emil picked me up and then we headed over there... I think we queued for almost two hours, but it was well worth it! :D 


Jeans from the 8th grade...

A while ago I decided that I wanted to fit into some old jeans of mine (jeans from the 8th grade or something like that ^^) so they've been hanging in my closet reminding me of my "goal". And guess what... Yep, you're right, it's the ones on the dreamy pic!!! WOHO !

 


Finally a real kitchen!!!

It's done, it's finished... I finally got an oven AND a dishwasher! It's soooo worth every little penny I've spent on it. And thank you, Dad, for helping me with it!


Kind customers!

Listen to this: Last year I also worked at the same store as I did this year, and it seems like the costumers really like me. So, last year this old man who captures his own crawfishes came to the store and gave me a kilo - just because he liked me and thought that I was so cute :P

Yesterday, the same man came through the doors and asked me when I was leaving, and when I said that I was going home today, he promised to hurry to make sure that I got a few crawfishes this year too! Awwww... :D

And believe it or not, but just a few hours later, he walked in again with a box of crawfishes! Yummy!!!


3 Doors Down - Landing in London

2008-07-29 - Uncategorized


Here's a song which has an enormous meaning for me. This song and its lyrics was the ONLY song I listened to during the last two stops on the Play Us tour and it pretty much tells everything about how I was feeling at the point in time. I fell asleep on the flight to London and woke up to this song when the plane touched the ground. I think you'll understand what I'm talking about when you read the lyrics.

"Landing In London"

I woke up today in London
As the plane was touching down
And all I could think about was Monday
And maybe ill be back around

If this keeps me away much longer
I don't know what I will do
You've got to understand its a hard life
That I'm going through

And when the night falls in around me
I don't think ill make it through
I'll use your light to guide the way
Cause all I think about is you

Well L.A is getting kinda crazy
And New York is getting kinda cold
I keep my head from getting lazy
I just can't wait to get back home

And all these days I spend away
I'll make up for this I swear
I need your love to hold me up
When it's all too much to bear

And when the night falls in around me
I don't think ill make it through
I'll use your light to guide the way
Cause all I think about is you

And all these days I spend away
I'll make up for this I swear
I need your love to hold me up
When it's all too much to bear

When the night falls in around me
I don't think ill make it through
I'll use your light to guide the way
Cause all I think about is you


Guinness World Records Magazine

2008-07-26 - Gaming


When I got back from work last night, around 00:30, I looked through my mail as I always do. I'd gotten a mail from "Guinness World Records Magazine" who wanted to do an interview with me. The issue is released in late August, so keep an eye or two open for it!


Our interview in the magazine!

2008-07-25 - Media


A few weeks ago, Sofi and I went to Stockholm to do an interview with FRIDA. They wanted to make an article about us and Play Us. While I was working last week I saw the interview in the magazine :D 

Sorry to say it’s in Swedish, but for you who’ll understand it – Enjoy!


Is this a joke!?

I've found the coolest thing for my kitchen. Well, it all started with a huge and stupid mistake. When I moved to Norrköping last year, it all went REALLY fast when I got my apartment, not even 3 working days from when I saw the pics on the Internet, until I signed the contract. What I didn't saw was that there was no oven... Embarrassing, donno how it's even possible to miss that ^^ But I did!

Anyway, last weekend my dad and I drove down to Norrköping to measure some stuff in my kitchen and look for an oven and maybe a dishwasher. And you know what I found... HAHA you wouldn't believe me if I hadn't taken a picture of it! So, now I have a reason to work those crappy hours - no more shoes, it's all about the combined oven and dishwasher! 


Who do you wanna date?
