More and more and...

what do you do when you don't really know what to do, but your natural instincts says you want more? More of everything or more on what matters? Well, if I knew what mattered the most I would not be struggling, would I?

...back to square one. It cannot be outruled that there might be a personal efficiency issue here.

This is the rugged coast of the Shetland Island, which you do not want to come too close too on a bad day.

This is Scull Island covered in mist, the locals call it Fair Island and it sits just between the Shetlands and Orkney. Some minutes later I spotted my first whale, unfortuntely I was fresh out of harpoons.

This little left I found just outside the place where the stoneage people just to live on Orkney. During the stoneage they lived large here on organisc lobsters, non-spray crops, seals, wales and fish along with deer, moose and all sorts of nuts.

This is one of few photos of Loch Ness and Nessie. Don't be alarmed though, he's alright as long as you feed him.

This little pic shows the beautiful views of the English country side that the Romans got when they checked out their emperors wall. Handrian's wall was special.

Anys, I took a ton of photographs, but I will only bore the people I know with those. So you are safe. For now.

Why do I just keep going...

Well I don't know. It's my personal style I guess. However, lately it seems like everyone around me is ganging up on me telling me that I just talk too much or write too much.

I know that you are not evil so I listen to you, but inside I feel like Jesus when Judas kissed him. Jesus loved having the apostles around and interact with them, but ended up being cruzified, as you might recall from Sunday school.

Then again you are not better, you non commenting bystander, you Pontius Pilatus, you wash your hands, but your very silence is turning your water into my blood.

Why can't we all just get along and do great things together? Like they did during the stoneage, when they had perfect waves, lobsters and all sorts of organic goodies to eat.

Dr Coff

has moved in again and started to make my life unfun. I thought I had kicked him when I was away, but no, he's been around all the time. On Tuesday he made his presence known once again and it's been downhill since then. Eyes running, nose running are the tell-tale signs and the coughing his calling card.

Work sucked last week since things are pretty bad at the moment. Things will turnout all right, but I'd love to cross that bridge asap. But on a more positive note the weekend was great all things considered. Apart from the doctor my parents were here, and here's what we did:
-Midsummer dinner. Good wines and good food rounding it off with strawberries, whiskey and coffee.
-London musical. Went in and saw Sweden loose against Germany and then on with some sushi, espresso rounding it off with Phantom of the opera.
-Oxford laziness. Long walk and Sunday roast at the Trout Inn.

Now they've gone away to go back to Sweden and it's a bit empty. On the other hand, it's kind of nice to have the lair to myself again. Now I just need to sort out all the stuff that I have not been doing for the last two weeks. It's a lot.

Number 2

you were so popular and tonight Henke Larsson managed to secure one point. But this was not as good news as the fact that Sweden played good football!

We got our first club night going with our Swiss Concrete Promotion. The venue is booked and so are the bands. It all will go down in August at the Port Mahon in Oxford, England. It's not the greatest of venues, but keep a look out, this is not the beginning of the end, nor the end of the beginning, but the beginning of the end of the end of the beginning.

Incha Allah!

was a good trip. Whales, puffins, seals, crayfish and oysters as well as beautiful views of islands, ocean, coast and interesting remains of cultures long ago. Now I am back and nicely nestled behind my office desk. I need change and more champagne!

lucky no 7

so it's been a good week although blogger has been working a bit so so. France was lovely with fantastic food. Seafood dinner with shellfish platter as a starter and then tuna tartar followed up by a magnificent four course lunch the day after. Vive la France! Of course we did some work in between and the flights were on time.

After working away like a worker this week with late evenings at the office or en route, yesterdays barbeque was a good warm up for today. At seven I went out in the University parks with Matt and Miri to celebrate with some Vuelve Clicquot, played with the devil stick and football. It looks like a managed to get an offer I will not be able to refuse. Cash in hand has always grabbed my attention.

Now I will be off to Scotland for a week to check out the distilleries, scenery and feline talent. Apart from catching up with mum and dad who are already up there, but that goes without saying, eh?

Cowboy from hell

Sunday, June 04, 2006


was nice and included buying cds like:

  • Kiss-God gave rock n roll to you - I listened to this one heaps when I graduated high school and was king of the world. My youngest cousin graduated on the Friday.
  • Give 'em the boot V - current hellcat records collection, i suppose it's for punx.
  • Monster magnet, Power trip - I listend to Kris' one a lot and it contains the immortal lyrics, "I'm never gonna work another day".
  • Pulp-Different class - This one was played on my player in Gothenburg by Therese, who I was currently dating. I had tickets for their concert at Rondo 1996, but those were bought for T and her friend. In 1998 Willie took me on free tix to their gig at the Enmore in Sydney. Jarvis, you're one of my idols, and this one is a happy album.

Then I went to Rich's place and listen to some demos for the July date. This time we're gonna change the Denture a bit and interview the artists before the night. Should be fun. As I stumbled homewards I gave Ann Helen a call, and swung by her place for a barbeque. It was good to catch up a bit again. Then I went straight to the Zodiac and Bic Runga, which was all right, but I can't help but think that I should have gone with Rich to see the Walk Off.

Glas is half full,



Made a list of the stuff I wanted to get done today. It worked. I got the stuff done. Go me!
  • Change sheets
  • Launder
  • Wash up
  • Clean
  • Cook
  • Run
  • Shower and shave
  • Give Chris cd
  • Write article for work
I work in France for two days this week and then to Scotland on Saturday morning. Vaction here I come!

First of all I would like to say, sorry

, sorry for not calling you. I have not got your number any more. I know what you are thinking now, why and how did I loose it. Did I simply erase your number in one of those fits of anger* I suffer from or was it a deliberate process involving Freudian brain activity? I am happy to say that it is neither. I lost my phone snowboarding in Switzerland, and it obviously contained all the numbers that I want to keep close at all times. The search and rescue operation that followed, immediately after the loss was discovered, I have to confess, was as unsuccessful as un-attempted. However, had it been attempted and successful, the Saint Bernards would have been princely awarded. My gratitude would have known no bounds. I might have bought a marrowbone.

I love you

Evil Dr Cold

continues to visit, even after the evil Dr Coff has left my throat. Along with all of the other crap at work and with the car this week, I am starting to loose my cool. I would say I've lost it actually. Ma ha ha ha haa!

Anys weather is great, and tomorrow I am off to Bic Runga at the Zodiac. It'll be good to catch up with Matt, Miri, Chris and Beth as well. I am just going to sit this night out first, gotta sleep.

Thanks, now piss off!
