Lots of nice things the past week

Last night it was the Academy Award. Just as last year we were at Henric’s and had a bunch of food, snacks and soda.

It was a nice show too. Three Swedish awards, and the Documentary award for Searching For Sugar Man was extra nice to see.

Otherwise it was a good gala, hosted by Set MacFarlane in a brilliant way. Good winners too, I think. Of the major movies, I have only seen Les Miserables and Django Unchained, but would love to see more of the others. It was nice to see that there were so many movies that appealed to a wider audience base.

So, I’m a bit tired tonight, staying up all night for the Oscars. I got a powernap for an hour when I got home, but tonight I’m calling in early.

At my job it’s a bit better now. I have got a temp-position for a year, as the editor of the letters-to-the-editor section. For the first time ever I know what I’ doing for an extended period of time.


This week me, Henric and Andreas have booked our tickets to America! April 19th we take of to the wonderful California. Goddammit, I’m so excited to go back there!


For some reason I'm longing to go back here...


The Walking Dead has started again. So far I have seen two episodes, but it looks really good for the upcoming season.


And I have gotten a birthday package from Lauren :)


Birthday card

My relatives visit me and my parents yesterday to give me brithday presents. And also this card.
Yesterday was another semifinal of Melodifestivalen, and it sucked.
In my Swedish blog I have listed all old semifinals to compare wish was the worst, but since probably none of you who are reading this in English has heard any of those old songs, I'm not translating that part.

Nice birthday

This weekend it was my birthday, and it was a really great weekend.

Last weekend I was with my parents in Getinge and got celebrated with cake and presents.

This Saturday there were about 13 people here. We had a great party, watched Melodifestivalen, and then went out.


I got to sleep for long both Saturday and Sunday, and Friday night I was at home eating smörgåstårta and watched Armageddon.


A terrific weekend, that is!


Something that hasn’t been as terrific has been the start of the season for the New York Rangers. Shaky, but I think it will work out for the best. Rick Nash has started out nice, which is good.


Btw, Melodifestivalen, the Swedish entry selection for Eurovision Song Contest, has its first semifinal, and it wasn’t that good. One nice song by yohio, but in the other songs, there wasn’t much quality to find.


The work is okay. Nothing new about what happens after February, but soon I’ll know, hopefully. The last weeks I have been both on the Family section, been copy-editing, on the web, writing for the Halmstad section and I’ve been to the local office in Hylte. It’s nice that I’m good at multitasking :)
