It's raining

It really started raining a few minutes again. It's like a waterfall out there. Well it's good for the plant life. It will be a really green summer =).

Back at work

I'm back at work, doing my second evening shift out of 4...

The cage is back

We took a little drive today with our four dogs and we noticed that the dog guard didn’t work that well. The problem was that our largest dog is 22 kg and the smallest on is puppy that weighs around 4 kg. Add two more dogs behind the dog guard and it doesn’t work.

So I put back the cage. We can have our three smaller dogs there and the large one in the back seat. It needs a bit more vacuum cleaning but it works…

A dog guard

I bought a dog guard to my car yesterday. I also installed it. I think it looks great and I hope it works great too. However I don't think the dogs will like it. They like to be near people, very near, so near that it can be difficult to drive.

I love dogs but in the name of traffic safety it's necessary that dogs are kept away from the driver.

De gungar

Antingen har jag varit för mycke på sjön när jag kan känna hur de gungar när jag hör den hårda vinden utanför eller så gungar faktiskt den här byggnaden =0

A new car

I have exchanged my 1998 Toyota Corolla to a 2003 Opel Meriva. My Corolla was a sedan while this is a mini-MPV. Sure a sedan is made for driving but with 4 dogs it's nice to be able to put them behind the back seat. If I didn't vacuum my Corolla often enough you couldn't fasten the seat belts in the back seat because the fasteners where stuffed with dog hair. I think you get the picture.

2 hours

2 hours left of my evening shift tonight…

Social minefield

I like playing World of Wacraft, most of the time. There are however drawbacks. Look at any strategy guide you’ll find advices like “Don’t do this or you’ll look like a noob”, “If you do this you’ll look like a noob and be kicked of the party”, “Ask but don’t do it up front or you’ll look like a noob and be denied your request”, “Don’t say that or you’ll look like a noob”… I will name my next character “Iamanoob” so they don’t have to wonder.

A Christmas party at a German company is anarchy in comparison.

Good Night

I think it's time for me to go to bed. I'm just waiting for the ESC semifinal results...

Jag hade tänkt cykla till jobbet idag

Jag hade tänkt cykla till jobbet idag men det blev inte så. ca en timme före jag skulle åka på jobb(kvällskift) ringde disponeneten från mitt bostadsbolag(vi bor alltså i min bättre hälfts radhustvåa nu) och meddelade att postiljonen lagt grannens post i i min brevlucka.

Så eftersom jag jobbar kväll och min bättre hälft var på friluftsdag(fotvanding nånstans ute i skärgården) från sitt jobb var de bara att sätta sig i bilen och köra till min lägenhet så att nu min granne fick sin post idag.

Men imorgon ska jag cykla till jobbet så de så...


Olin joskus yrittänyt kirjoittaa suomenkielinen blogi täällä blogspotissa. Suurin ongelma oli että mulla ei oli mitän lukija siihen blogille. No suurin osia suomenkielisiä lukija mulla on MySpaceissa. Sen takia mä olen päättänyt että mun kirjoitukset suomeksi kirjoitan siellä.

Mä meinaa jatka kirjoitta englanniksi tässä kuin ennen, mutta lisäksi ruotsiksi ja harvoin myös suomeksi. Mä luulen että mun kirjoitukset englanniksi on helpompi ymmärrä kuin tä ;-P.

3 languages

I might write some posts in Swedish (often) and Finnish (rarely) in this blog too. It's easier to keep track of my own blogging and my Google account instead of several blogs and and/or accounts if I keep everything in one place...

Back at work

I’m back at work. I’m doing my first evening shift out of four. I’ve had six days off. During those days I have visited my mom twice. We also moved to my girlfriends terrace apartment over the summer. It’s smaller but its summer; it has a lawn (about 6*8 m) and large park area behind it. I have a high rise building apartment, it’s bigger but it's not for the summer, it’s for the winter. She also bought a new computer so I have played around with that since then. But it’s for a good cause, I’m installing programs she needs…and World of Warcraft, it has a 22 inch widescreen =).

Today’s events are mainly about food. Since I’m doing the night shift these days I pretty much sleep all day and that is not any groundbreaking event to write about ;-).

Anyway since it’s Wednesday we did go to our usual X3M lunch. We went to this Asian restaurant that has an all you can eat Mongolian buffet around lunch time. Let’s put it like this, we where full when we left.

Later at home we made tacos and the cakes from yesterday had to be eaten too before they become uneatable ;-P.

Growing old

Growing old is about getting to know yourself. It’s not only about knowing your limitations but also about being confident in your own abilities…

Labour Day

Labour Day is always a fun thing. The city square is filled with market sellers. Although it was either raining or snowing today the square was still full of people. We walk around for a few minutes and bought a couple of spring rolls and headed home. There are no bad weather only bad clothes and I didn’t bring along winter clothes.

As for the rest of the day we had Nina’s parents and her brother with family over for coffee. That was fun especially since we were inside, not outside in the snow. Usually the last snow fall in late March or early April so this was an exception. They have predicted a record warm summer so let’s hope so =).
