Last couple of days

The cold continues. Minus 16. It's unusually cold winter this year.

Snow covered house. Looks like someone sprayed fake snow on the windows, but it's real.

Changing water in the aquarium. Must be done regularly.

Taking the dog for a walk. Streets almost un-walkable due to the snow.

This old bag told me to be silent on the train. I told her: Hey Bag-lady, wait! I have something for you...and I gave her the middle finger, rigid and stiff. Childish of me: Yes! But I'm sure she sat in this part of the train just to tell people off.

The Swedish way. Be silent and don't get out of line. "No Strong odors" it says as well on this train-sign.

Party at Joacims in Mora. He had his 40:th birthday. We had a great time. Outdoors in a hot tub in minus 16 with strong winds. I stuck my shoulders up and it became covered with ice. Rolled around in the snow afterwards. What an awful feeling that was. Penises went smaller than ever, left and right. I don't put the pics here since people might be embarrassed being under-dimentioned. We went snow-mobiling. Great fun. Fast and really powerful machines. 140 bhp.
Joacim had arranged hot dogs and beers at the lake where we were driving. I think Oscar took the speed record. 123 Km/h. It was a too short lake to go faster. I took it a little easier going only 100. It felt unsafe in the strong wind and big snow drifts. Later in the evening we partied and ate great. The chef was "the real Swedish chef" The one they used for inspiration in the muppet show.

On the way home there were severe problems with the trains. Some freight train had derailed in the snow and it made everything late.

These were the tracks in Mjölby. They worked. You should have seen the ones that didn't.

Jennys car broke down. It was an electrical wire. It took them one hour to fix and it costed SEK 8000:- (€ 800:-). If you like to get screwed and pay 1000% too high prices, please get a Smart car! SEK 4000:- for an oil change...what a bargain.

Met Pontus in Stockholm yesterday. We hade some "semlas" at Tösses bakery. The best I ever had. Pontus went to town on the semlas...
This is our manager/arrranger-guy Joakim Tjelta. We found these speakers that use the glass in the shop window as a resonator (no speaker cones). Never seen that before.

  1. När ska det här dyka upp i hemsidebloggen också? Jag har bett dig tusentals gånger, kan du inte slänga upp skiten där också, kontinuerligt? Snälla? Det är ju roliga iakttagelser! : )
    Det händer inte så mycket på hemsidan, så allt räknas. Var det inte du som klagade över dålig aktivitet på sidan en gång? ; )
