Happy belated, bloggie

Mood: Quite good, actually..
Listening to: God only knows – Beach Boys (Or rahter “Love Actually” soundtrack )

So, now my blog is over one year old.. and what do I have to show for it?
Hardly anything.
I have no idea how many people drop by because NO ONE COMMENTS!!! Even though I tell people to do so.. BY THE PAIN OF DEATH!!!!  *scowls*
But yeah… I don’t think I’ll quit. So what if no one reads it. I enjoy writing, and I’ll never stop that. If I have both my arms removed I’ll find a way to get my throughs down on paper.. or a blog :3

Well.. I say that no one comments… I did get a comment only yesterday… but I have no idea what it said, so…
Just a bunch of questionmarks.. Sorry, dude.. You’ll have to be a little more clear.. I don’t speak.. whatever that was..

As for Jan… He is doing just fine. I’ve been helping him change bandages, bandaids and stuff.. and it’s nice and clean..
been seeping a little, but that’s to be expected… no bleeding, tho..
So… On monday he’ll have his stitches out and all will be good, I hope…
Unless his hand fall off.. that will be less good… or his thumb… I don’t know if he wants to keep it in a pickle jar…

I’ve had such urges to make cute little cookies lately.. of course now when I DON’T have an electric beater. Well, I have one, but it’s all ugh… the bubble beater thingie for my speedy knife thingie…

well… I guess that’s it..
Oh, almost… The job I applied for… I didn’t get it… She sent me an e-mail yesterday saying it was taken… Well, gee.. thanks…
Well, then… It’s up to my lovely former boss to rehire me.. I really want that job back… really….

Hope you have a good one, whoever you are…

What I’ve figured out from this is that I like, actually, a fair bit of chick flicks… *bitch moan*
I think that I really don’t consider them chick flicks because the are kinda cool too… or maybe I’m wrong in thinking them chick flicks… Like… is Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon a chick flick??? It does have the concept of love in it… but then there is all the sword play and stuff… Same with Hero…. and House of Flying Daggers….
Also… If you are going to view a movie that’s been “Americanized” like The Ring… just watch the original… You’ll get a much better story. I don’t get why the Americans have to ruin good movies that way.
And.. before I get an irate comment about why I didn’t do Star Wars I, II and III…. Well… even though they are kinda cool, you won’t miss much if you don’t watch them before you die…. honestly. To me, the only thing that’s keeping the movies going is the brilliant acting of Ewan McGregor, a CGI green dude with large ears and guests starts, like Christopher Lee. Basically the only one I like of the three is 1. Liam Neeson is in it.. and that alone should be enough reason to watch it… so ok… we’ll put that on the reserve.. just in case you find I’ve doubled up on something… :3

There are also series that you HAVE to see before you die… one of them being Dexter…
the other one is Taken… or Steven Speilberg presents Taken… Dakota Fanning is amazing in it… as she is in all she’s in. Did you ever see War of the Worlds where she out acted Tom Cruise with a simple look?
Sadly, for me, even thought Dakota is great… it still has Tom Cruise in it… I admit I have seen it once… but no more… I won’t see it again (even if Tom can talk to aliens…)
Also… Eleventh Hour. I can understand if people don’t like it… But I do.. and I highly recommend it.
OH!!! and of course The Big Bang Theory… So funny… XD

Later I’ll try to scramble up an, at least, 10 books to read before you die.. Too bad I’m thinly read



Mood: A little… I don’t know… worried…
Listening to: Air Supply – Literal video version of “Making love out of nothing at all”
If you to go YouTube and search for it, you’ll get such a laugh…  I REALLY want to link it here, but I have to ask the guy who made it if I can… I don’t want to take any credit away from him what so ever.. He deserves all the cudos he can get for this hilarious video…

Why I’m worried…
Well, let’s start with that… it’s not Jan… don’t worry.. he’s great…
BUT… the movie site I love and adore? It’s gone… or down… and I don’t know if it’s because Goliath got fed up with my constant craving for movies or if he’s ill or if it’s just a mistake… DX
I just want my movies back… And I hope nothing has happened to G… That would be most upsetting..
As far as I know.. it’s been down since yesterday. After I got back from the hospital I checked to see if he had uploaded another movie, even though he said he wouldn’t because he was having his brain transplanted… but he has fibbed in the past.. And I found it all not there and gone and stuff…

So yeah… I kinda feel responsible… I have been very demanding lately… I just hope it hasn’t broken his spirits… or his computer…
To be honest… The movies is just part of why I go there every day… I’ve finally found someone who likes sci-fi movies just as much as I do… And we, as a community, of sorts, have great fun… Don’t deny it…


The Deed Is Done

Mood: Elated and rejoiced
Listening to: Nothing at the moment… Except for the song in my heart… ~~~~~~

Jan finally had his surgery today…
And it was nothing serious.. It was a tallow (?) gland gone nuts… He had the appointment at 1pm… but while we were there waiting for him he found out that it was postponed… till around 2pm… so he told us to go home, us being Espen and I… Espen got his license now.. and so we did… and on the way home we decided we’d drive back around 6pm… if he had his surgery around 2pm and would have to wait for three hours post surgery… and then get food etc… well, you do the math…
But my darling boyfriend, the love of my life and my better half called me a little past 5pm… well.. it was closer to 6pm, actually… and told me to come pick him up… When we did he said that the surgery had been postponed even more… he was operated on around 4pm… But post surgery the nurse said he looked so well and stuff so he was ok to go home…
I’m just happy he’s alive. I was worried… not overly worried, but worried… Never know what can happen… But he seems just fine… Kinda handicaped now tho.. with his left hand, the hand he usually uses.. yes, he’s a lefty… all bandaged up…
So yes…. I’ll probably not sleep tonight either, but you know how it is…

Good to have you home, love <3


Oh bother…

Mood: relaxed and happy
Listening to: hard to say…. people talking on TV.. I couldn’t say what they are talking about, I’m not paying attention… Well, NOW I am… They are talking about medical ointments, aids etc. in the olden days… like 100 a.d.

So yeah…
I thought it was about time I wrote a little in my blog.
I know I’m not nearly as diligent as  should be.

So… anyways….
I bought Panko (bread crumbs… japanese…) ages ago, and I finally made something with it… First I tried to make an easy chicken parmesan… without parmesan.. with mozzarella… So yeah… I won’t make that again, I think… I don’t think the chicken worked well with the pasta sauce I used…
However… today I made “chicken nuggets” and had rice and sweet chilli sauce on the side… and it was DELICIOUS!!!! I am SO making that again…
Yes, I know I should have taken pictures, but my camera is out of power…
Next time, eh?

In other news…
I applied for a job on monday… It’s the same thing as before, basically.. only it surely doesn’t have the lovely ladies I used to work with… but for a 40% position I’ll live… and I need the money…
I called my former boss and told her that she might get a call… If not then… oh well… I can still get a job where I used to work.. hopefully THIS year before christmas…

Oh… and the world will end, according to Nostredamus, in 2012…
I hope it’ll be fast… I don’t know if I want to live after the world ends…

OH, and I heard today that one is less likely to get preggers if you ear crisps, kebabs and drink coke… *drinks coke and eats kebab sprinkled with crisps*
What a load of crock!!! <.<
(No, I’m not preggers… nor do I want to be…)

I still go to the movie site and enjoy movies..
Goliath has been very good with us… Well, apart ffrom one VERY long western.
It’s not that I HATE westerns…. I like “For a few more dollars”, “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and “Eldorado”
Granted… Eldorado is kinda like a western chickflick.. kinda… seeing as there is a strong gunslinging woman in it…
But he, Goliath, did save face with “The 7th Voyage of Simbad”. You might not like that kind of movie, but I REALLY like those old movies with the old special effects. They really did well.
AND he has told us that he will show us The Abyss, directos cut!!!! AMAZING!!! I am SO looking forward to it… I have seen it before, and it makes a whole world of difference, the whole movie… True, the cutting done on the movie is very good… it’s a smaller story cut… so to speak… if you’ve seen it you know what I’m talking about….
If not then surely you haven’t lived..
But yeah… I REALLY love the movie site… I know it’s not mine, as I own it, but I’ve been there for so long I kinda feel ownership, kinda… ya know?

And furthermore… It’s starting to get really dark outside…
Like woah…. autumn… bigtime. BUT.. during the day its been warm so I’ve been sweating like a pig… Today I was smart, tho…
I turned on the ceiling fan and opened the door… and now I’m actually kinda freezing… XD…

I’ll get back to you later…


P.S: As far as we know Jan is still scheduelled for the surgery on monday.
I still haven’t decided yet if I want to go with him or not.
I think I’ll decide on monday…

I can haz music nao =D

Mood: GREAT!!! XD
Listening to: Lost – Erlend Cratland… oh, hell no… too depressing…
Ugh.. I seem to only have depressing songs… Nelly Furtado – All good things come to an end…

But then again I do love this song…
I saw a really beautiful video thingie on youtube where they had this song and the fourth Doctor and Romana… And the one who made it made it look like she died and stuff… It’s really touching… even though I know better now..
I hadn’t seen the episode where she stays in E-Space with K-9… so I really thought she died.. which would be really upsetting.. AND I had forgotten everything I had read about Romana and her adventures with K-9…
It’s all really easy to forget when you have no brain XD
Speaking of youtube. I’ve been busy today ^_^
I’ve finally figured out a way to download the music and not the video without using a crappy mic…
Thanks to the website I used I now have the new 2008 Dr Who Theme, an Ultimate collection of all the Dr Who Themes including the movie in the 80’s, and ZOMG! YATTA!!!! I HAVEN’T HEARD THAT IN AGES XD SCORE!!!
Oh yeah…. and a Dr Who theme thingie from a band called Orbit or something like that. Really good stuff…
So now I’m all happy ^_^

So.. what else is new?
Well… a week ago or so Jan got a new letter from the hospital where he was supposed to get his operation on his finger at the start of last month… We were supposed to go back on the 10th… but the new letter says… come on the 21st instead…
*hangs head* How fucking hard is it to have a FINGER looked at and operated on?????
It’s all this swine flu thingie… such paranoia…
The whole things should have been handled better… I’ve already said this, I know…

Oh… I don’t know if anyone has head it…
But two Norwegian guys has been arrested in Congo for killing the driver of the car they were in.
According to their story the driver was shot by hidden attackers in the jungle… hard to prove, I know…
But the Congolese military thingie had them arrested, and the trial was done today…
They have been sentenced to death… for murder, attempted murder, weapons smuggling, espionage, conspiracy to create a league or something like that. If they did it I can understand murder… But attempted murder? On whom?
And why would the Norwegian government want to send out spies to spy on… what… exactly is there to spy on in Congo?
And they did say that they wanted to make a company thingie in Congo, for rich people to come down there and play war.. Like what we would do on a paintball rink, I would imagine…
Pictures of them was used in evidence against them… text messages they sent and received was used against them.
And to top it all of… the Congolese military thingie wants the Norwegian government to fork up 60 MILLION DOLLARS!!!!
Of curse our foreign minister denounces all charges and the fact that they have been used by Norway to spy on Congo… again I ask.. What exactly is there to spy on? How their military operates??? I think, if it’s a big secret, they have told on themselves by now…
It has to be said that I had an feeling about how it would all end before the trial (MOCK TRIAL) started. I knew their sentence had been given even before they stepped inside the court room.

Other than that nothing major has happened.
I keep breathing and loving… the sun keeps shining, the world keeps turning and the universe keeps spinning. It’s all good…
