Boring now, but fun yesterday

I'm at work now. I'm handeling the pages about the town Hylte, and the domestic pages about Sweden. Hylte is already done, and I have sent it away. The Sweden pages are done too, but I have to wait if something's happening. I'm following the flow from the news agency TT. Last thing came at 9:05pm, and now it's 10:47. But I still have to wait for a couple of hours more. It's boring.

But yesterday it was more fun. I went on a treasure hunt! !Together with new and old friends from the local youth leauge of the Moderate Party we walekd around in Halsmtad trying to find the stuff on our list. We were to find differnet things, like a brick, water from the fountain on the square, a soccer ball, a red flower and a lot of other stuff. One of the things was a fried egg. We didn't bring a real fried egg, but a piece of candy called "fried egg". The same creativity we used to find "a strawberry hat". I got a strawberry and then I wore it as a hat the entire evening. A well as eye shadow...

But our team lost.

Afterwards we grilled at the dock. Very nice.

Tomorrow it's Midsummer, the biggest holiday in Sweden. I will go to Öland to meet the relatives.See ya. and

Happy midsummer everybody!

Funeral and wedding

 

It has been a church weekend.

It started with grandmas funeral Friday. I found out that I’ve never been in Kosta Church before, even though I’ve been in the cemetery many times before. It was a nice funeral, not so long and with a good priest. It was also nice to meet my cousins on that side, which happens way too little.

 

Then on Saturday it was time for the biggest happening in Sweden this year. The wedding between Crown Princess Victoria and her Daniel. The wedding that media has written tons about in the last months.

 

Just so you know, I’m a royalist and I love stuff like this!

 

We were sitting at home and watched all day. It was so much fun I thought. Fist to see all the royal people from all over the world coming to the church and walking on the red carpet (which was blue this time). Then the ceremony. Victoria had such a beautiful dress, too. It was nice to see this and also after, the cortège through Stockholm. It was great that it was such a lovely weather.

The dinner in the evening was the highlight of the day. First great speeches by the King and Daniels dad. But then came Daniel. His speech was just so amazing and wonderful. Very beautiful, and after that there can’t be anyone that has any doubt about him as a Prince.

 

Daniel's speech

 

At work there has been a lot of things to do about the wedding. A lot of pages, both domestic and local. But now the reporting about this is over for this time. Now, the couple are to go out on their honeymoon. Then, the next media coverage will be when their kid will come. My guess is for it to be born in early April 2011. And my guess is that it will be a boy named Oscar. But I hope that it will be called Johan.

Time for wedding!

Prince (to be) Daniel and Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden

 

No it’s finally here. For many weeks media has been writing everything possible about this, and even more than that. It’s the wedding between the Crown Princess Victoria and her fiancé Daniel. She will be the Queen of Sweden some day, so this is a historic day.

 

At home we have prepared with cake, sparkling wine and wedding chocolate. I have my shirt on. This is fun.

 

I’ll be back tomorrow with more.

Soccer world cup, jobs and politics

Soccer World Cup is on and that is nice. Even though there hasn’t been that good games yet it’s still nice to watch, and I love that it’s three games per day.

 

I’m not bothered by the Vuvulezas, the horns that you can hear all the time.  It’s fun to see how much people are mad at them. Chill! Here is an image. I like it a lot =)

 

 

I have started my job now. Page editor at Hallandsposten. It is nice to have as a summer job. Will mostly be working evenings (1.50 PM – 12.30 AM). Will be cool.

 

I’m now watching the debate of the party leaders in the Swedish parliament. Mostly the politicians are painfully humor free. I like how Björklund, Hägglund and Ohly shines up some times. But Sahlin and Olofsson are sooo boring. Politically The Alliance kicks ass with the Redgreens. Here is my judgement over the politicians.

  • Fredrik Reinfeldt (m). Can be way to serious. Relax! You rock! Always present good ideas.
  • Maud Olofsson (c). Why. So. Serious? Usually boring.
  • Göran Hägglund (kd). Can joke around a lot some times. Fun man, but many times with suspicious politics.
  • Jan Björklund (fp). Mixes humor with politics that are so tough that you sometime don’t know how to react. Did he really say that?
  • Mona Sahlin (s). Most boring person in Swedish politics. Ever. She is also evil. self-righteous and difficult Why did they choose her? There are so many better social democrats. But thanks J
  • Maria Wetterstrand (mp). Very talented and good politician, but is to much on-going. Gets mad when she doesn’t gets what she wants.
  • Peter Eriksson (mp). Why isn’t the norlandic gnome there more often? He is cool, but weird when it comes to politics. Way worse than Wetterstrand.
  • Lars Ohly (v). I hate his politics, but he is still one of my favorite politicians. You just laugh at him. Both his jokes and his politics.

A really good weekend

The pleasant week in Gothenburg was followed up by a very nice weekend in Halmstad and Getinge.

 

Yesterday I was in the city and met Maria. She was down here this weekend and we took a coffee and sat and talked about everything and nothing from Santa Barbara, the summer and what we have done since we got back to Sweden. Very nice, indeed.

 

In the evening it was time for a birthday party. Evelina and Hanna had a party at the club house of Getinge IF. There were a lot of people and so many I haven’t seen in a long, long time. Food, games, dance, drinks, music and a very fun and great evening.

 

Now it’s time for soccer. It such a bad weather outside, so it’s very good that there are three games per day in the World Cup.
