Gasoline thieves

Since Nina is selling her apartment we have moved back to mine. However there is one problem. We have lived here a week and twice has my fuel tank gone from ¼ to almost empty over night. Fortunately there is a free parking space closer to my apartment and in a more public place than where my official parking space is.

In the night

I’m back at work after my vacation. Well, actually I have done 4 morning shifts already. But I’m doing my first out of 4 night shifts now. It’s my favorite shift. I have written about this before but it’s worth mentioning again.

It’s a whole different world we night shifters see. It’s an empty world since most people are sleeping this time. But those of us who are awake become alive. I don’t know how else to describe it. Maybe it’s the darkness that requires us to heighten our senses. In mankind’s distant past or even earlier that was probably an ability necessary for survival. It was so vital that it became part of our genes.

Whatever the cause for this, it’s why I like the night shift. I feel alive…

Pictures from our camping trip

We took lots of pictures on our camping trip. First we used Nina’s camera. Unfortunately she forgot her charger at home so we have only pictures from Finland in that camera. But I had a camera too and it uses normal batteries. So after Nina’s camera’s battery run out we used mine.

There was a small incident on our first day in Norway, I dropped the camera. A small crack in the display but otherwise it seemed to work fine. Until we got home and transferred the pictures to the computer. The pre drop pictures look great. The past drop picture are blurry, well not all, only about 95 % of them. A landscape picture of a mountain a few miles away looks fine. Anything within 50 meters in the picture are blurry, like pictures of people, streets, normal pictures…

Next time I’m buying post cards on the spot =).
