And over to other things. Today I got back to work after being sick for a week and it was fun. I brought a lot of my old stuff to the store to sell and in just one day I’ve already sold six items. For those of you who don’t know I work at a thrift store where people leave their stuff and we sell it for them. I had a lot of old things lying around in the basement so I thought I might aswell put them up in the store and see if anyone wants to buy them. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure you know.

So it’s been ages since I last blogged. That’s because I’ve been sick and haven’t had the energy to do much besides lying on the couch, watching movies. I’ve been sick for more than a week and I’m still not well but screw that, I’m going to work tomorrow anyway. I just can’t stand another day at home. I’d rather sleep on a bed of nails than spend another day at home on the couch. I’m bored! It’s probably even more boring to read about so… change of subject!
Me and my sisters have decided that we’re going to the medieval week in Visby this summer. The medieval week is kind of like those renaissance fairs held in the U.S. There’s a fair, a medieval tournament and a lot of other things going on. And a lot of people – including me – dress up in medieval clothes. Visby is the perfect city for something like this because it’s the best preserved medieval city in Scandinavia and has been named a UNESCO World heritage site. The inner city is surrounded by a medieval wall and the city is full of old houses and ruins. It’s my favourite place in the world. Not that I’ve seen much of the world but still…
When I was looking at camping prices I was greatly annoyed by the discovery that my favourite camping no longer accept guests under the age of 25. Apparantly they think that anyone under 25 is a potential disturbance since young people are more likely to party and make a mess. That may be the case but not when it comes to all young people! Of course I can live at the camping since I’ll be 26 this summer but my sisters who are 21 and 18 can’t live there with me so this camping isn’t a option anymore. First of all they call themselves a family camping and that’s what we are – a family. Second of all we’re not there to party but to experience the culture and nature of Visby. And third – my 18 year old sister barely even drink alcohol. But oh no, all young people like to get drunk, party all night and disturb the other campers! Fucking bullshit…
There is another camping though. The problem is that it’s located 3 kilometers outside the city. That doesn’t sound far but compared to the other camping which is located 800 meters from the inner city it is. It’s also more expensive. Unfortunately we don’t have any other option since we can’t afford a hotel. At least it’s a really nice 5 star camping so I think it will be a great place to live, even though it’s a little too far from the city and a little too expensive.

I’m just in such a fucking bad mood! One of my cats peed in my bed and it’s too late to do laundry. This means I have to sleep under itchy wool blankets which it’s way too hot for. Now I’m in such a bad mood that every tiny mishap makes me want to scream and break things. When I lived in my parents house and was home alone I actually did scream out loud when I was mad and things didn’t go my way. It was something very refereshing about it. I can’t really do that anymore since I live in a flat and would scare the shit out of my neighbours if I started screaming at the top of my lungs.
I’m so fucking mad! When I get into a bad mood like this even a small thing like dropping a fork on the floor makes me want to throw things into the wall. Now THAT’S something I wish I could do! I really can’t so intead I write a angry blog to let out at least some of the steam.
And now I’m gonna make a sandwich and peppermint tea to snack on while I watch another episode of “Road To Avonlea”. If you live near me and hear someone screaming profanitys at the top of her lungs it might be me having dropped the butter knife or something.
This year I’ve listened to Dia Psalma for fourteen years, Nirvana for ten, HIM, Broder Daniel, Blind Guardian, The Cure, The Sisters of Mercy and Alanis Morisette for eight. 2000 was the year of musical discoveries for me and I started listening to most of my favourite bands around that time. It wasn’t until 2006 that I discovered Manic Street Preachers though.
Nirvana was my favourite band up until then, mainly because it was thanks to them I discovered the world of alternative music. Pretty ironic really, since they’re one of the most mainstream alternative bands ever. Anyway, when I discovered Manics they instantly became my favourite band. Nirvana can’t even compare to them. While Kurt never really cared about lyrics Manics are all about the lyrics. I’ve never in my life heard more intelligent music than Manic Street Preachers. These guys read intellectual litterature most fifty years old have never read, when they were still teenagers. And they’re of course interested in politics and a lot of their songs have a socialistic message.
I was very lucky to get to see them at the rock festival in my town only a couple of months after I started listening to them. I don’t remember my exact reaction when I read that they were coming here but I think it was something like eyes like tennisballs, mouth wide open, total silence followed by a “OH MY GOD”. I couldn’t believe my luck because I had been listening to Dia Psalma for more than ten years before I finally got to see them live and HIM for at least five years. And Nirvana of course I never got to see. Manics had a signing before their concert where I was first in line. My signed copy of “The Holy Bible” (One of their albums that is. Not a actual bible. Although it is kind of like a bible to me. And this is the longest parenthesis ever) hangs in a frame over my couch. It’s one of my most precious posessions.
This post actually wasn’t going to be about Manics. It was going to be about other bands aswell. But of course when I start talking about Manics I have a hard time shutting up. I keep going like a drunk hillbilly talking about EPA tractors. Like most of you know I even named one of my cats after Nicky Wire, the Manics bassist. One of my most fan girly moments ever was when I took pictures of Nicky wearing a pink feather boa and posted the photos in a Manics forum. Nicky Wire is kind of famous for his feather boas so of course my Nicky needed a small pink feather boa to play with.
I think I’m gonna stop writing now before I come off as even more of a crazy fangirl.
The man in the photo of course is none other than Nicky Wire.

Yesterday I thought about how wonderful it must be to travel. I would take a plane to somewhere warm and sunny if I could afford it. Unfortunately I can’t. I wish I could wrap myself up in pretty pink paper packaging and have someone send me to somewhere nice. Of course conscidering how expensive shipping is that might cost too much aswell.
I still very much look forward to spring and summer. Sitting in the green grass, taking walks by the lake, eating ice cream in the park, picking flowers and all that jazz. Summer truly is the best time of the year and spring isn’t too bad either because then you know you have the entire summer to look forward to.

I just relized that the sun is shining! I haven’t seen the sun in a really long time so this is nice. My mood instantly rises when there’s sunshine so I hope the weather is this good tomorrow aswell. I just hate this time of the year. It’s so gloomy and dark and I don’t feel like doing anything or going anywhere. All I do is work and come home to watch movies on my computer. Thank god spring is almost here. Now the world outside is cold and grey but in two months it will be so warm that even hairless dogs can be outside without freezing!
I’m gonna take a shower now and then I’m off to the grocery store to buy ingredients to the langos I’m making for dinner today.
And a note to Milla: Prostatacancer!!!
