Always talking about the same thing ... moaning about how gorgeous his smile is and how I want him so much it hurts ... I wonder what he would say, should I tell him that? He looked so cute this morning, the few seconds I saw him ... and when he called today (to tell me a customer had moved - why could he not wait until tomorrow to tell me that?) I felt that I could "hear" his smile on the phone ... and it is all just MADNESS! I need someone to take this demon out of my mind ... please?

DAMN! What can I say? I will NEVER be able to forget him if this keeps up. Seeing him every day is a killer ... especially when he smiles at me and says "wow" or whatever he said this morning. It pays to dress in white and have glitter in your hair on Lucia. I've had a lot of compliments today. There was a really cute sales person from Gallaher who said I looked really nice :) Hihi, that's always nice to hear, right? Especially when the one to say it is cute too! Anyway, I've pretty much just had M in my head all day *sigh* He looked so extra cute this morning in his neon yellow jacket and also he's been calling me about several things today ... and he who does not want to talk on the phone with me ;) Well, of course I understand that there is a difference between business and personal life ... but I really wanted to say something about that the first time he called me. But well, I am not such a cool person, so of course I did not :P Anyway, work is SO busy so I have to go.

Somebody save me!

I don't understand how he does it! No matter how hard I try to convince myself that I should not care, I should not think that he wants me ... every time he smiles he still has me nailed to the wall, panting for air, feeling tonz of butterflies inside me ... so weird! But if the look on his face this morning was not showing him happy to see me, I don't know what it was! It's very hard to explain but his whole face suddenly shone! And that smile ... and watching his hands sort through papers ... and his eyes on me ... I could die every time. He does not deserve such strong feelings, right??

Uh. I never write here anymore, huh? I've been writing tons of stuff in my lunarstorm diary instead. Keeping it secret to anyone but selected friends, of course. That's a lesson well learned! Not that I expect M to read it (he does not seem to hang on the internet) but there are others who might as well just know nothing. Whatever. I know I should not think of M, but I can't stop. He's running around in my head most of the time ... especially since he never seems to be gone, he keeps popping up around here. This morning there were some problems with the trucks and he was here discussing it with Jonas ... I did not speak to him or anything, but just seeing him was enough, as always. He's so damn cute! Argh! I wish I had no problems with forgetting ... but I do ... I just can't. My heart is in pieces, but the faint beating that it does is by the rhythm of his name. Dammit! Why did he have to steal my heart to begin with? And why did he have to act like he was happy to see + talk to me last week? So weird. How am I supposed to be able to let go then?

And why does the weather have to be so depressing?

 

Aj!

Tuesday, 22 November 2005 15:00
Haven't been around here for ages, eh?
Just happened to drop by today.
I hurt so damn much inside that I don't know what to do.
He's in the building. He's not supposed to be, right?
He won't say a word to me, of course ... he's here to talk to Jonas. But ... ah well, it still hurts!
Damn Magnus!

Hey! Tomorrow is the last day of work before vacations! I still can't really believe it... In just two days I will see Mély in real life! Wow!

Hard work

Sunday, 11 July 2004 10:41
I am really tired! Not so much mentally (which obviously is the most common state for me) but rather fysically today. After all I helped Sofia with polishing, painting and cleaning in their new apartment for almost ten hours yesterday. I deserve to be tired, right?

Man! Moving means too much work. I think I never want to move! Or I'll get myself an apartment that is just built, so that there are no flaws from the other zillion residents to cover as well. Yeah right - like getting an apartment isn't expensive enough anyway, without getting a perfectly new one! *sigh* Anyway, S and A's apartment is getting somewhere finally... the painting job is done except for one more strike in the bathroom and then all the dust has to go away! I hope that A will finally do some work as well, cause frankly I think Sofia has done most of it so far...

I think it has actually stopped raining! Fantastic! I think it rained for at least 36 hours in a row or something! This is summer... everyone starting their vacations now must feel very happy! I still have eight more weeks to work until my next vacation, so weather will have time to get better... but then again, I won't care that much about the Swedish weather as long as it allows planes to start from the airport. I care more of the Canadian weather in September. Anyone who knows what it's going to be like? (Yeah right - the meterologist on TV here usually can't even tell the weather we've already had right so how could they ever tell us what will happen in the future?)

...and does anyone know a good pick-up line for a cutie at training? ;) I hope I will see him tonight. Resting your eyes on someone cute is always nice, right? :)

C*U*T*E

Monday, 14 June 2004 14:12
I'm just amazed how cute that guy at training is *smiling* It can't be healthy! At least not for me. Hehe! :) That's all I have to say for now!



(except that I have baaad ache in my stomach muscles today... just too many crunches!)

9:47

Damn, I am so tired this morning! I think I could’ve killed someone just to be able to sleep a while longer… but well, there was no one around so I couldn’t. I suppose that was a good thing. The day is grey and humid, extremely boring. Aaargh! I hate being this tired. It sure can’t be normal to be so tired every morning that you feel sick, right? Perhaps I should try to get to bed early… but I doubt that would do any good. First of all I don’t fall asleep anyway if I get to bed earlier than I usually do and second I think that the time you get up is more important for how you feel than the amount of hours you’ve slept. Somebody please tell me the perfect way to become a non-sleepy, non-tired person! 

Step class last night wasn’t exactly full… people have become lazy! We used to always be around fifty persons and now I think we are like twenty… and soon there will be a new schedule for the summer and that class won’t even be on it. What are we supposed to do then? We’ve grown addicted to our Monday evening step with Marika! And well… another disappointment – the cute guy wasn’t even there yesterday! 

Well, as for the sports… our dear mister Dott did not win the Snooker World Championship, since he lost 8-18 to mister O’Sullivan… and Sweden only played 0-0 against Slovakia in the hockey WC… But well, we still managed to not have to play against Canada or Czech republic in the quarter finals… that is good, I guess…

 14:04

I am so tired! Please let me go home!

 
N
ina played me this song last weekend and I kind of like it…

 “Welcome to the second reel glad that you can make it

We thought your fate was sealed it's not what we expected

But you punch above your weight and you're stronger than you look

And the ending's not the same they changed it from the book

 

I'm the boy with the bubble gun

I'm taking aim

I cannot hit to hurt or cause you pain

If words could kill I'd spell out your name

 

It's time to kill the king it's written in the scripture

See what tomorrow brings got to get a bigger picture

So forgive me forgive me for I am born to be what I must be and I must be

 

The boy with the bubble gun I'm taking aim

I cannot hit to hurt or cause you pain

If words could kill I'd spell out your name

I'm the boy with the bubble gun

The boy with the bubble gun

I'm the boy with the bubble gun with work to do

If songs could kill this one's for you”

(Tom McRae)

 

Graeme Dott…

10:12

…is our new snooker hero. Mine and Sofus’ that is. We tend to find a new favourite every time that Eurosport broadcasts snooker, but that’s another story. This tournament’s favourite is Dott. But even though we will cross our fingers very hard for him tonight I doubt that he will win… that O’Sullivan guy seems to be the better player, it looks so easy for him while Graeme has to fight for every point. Strange that snooker can be so interesting to watch – after all it is a rather slow game. We would like to learn how to play it but the problem is that you don’t learn all the rules by watching the championships… they never make the mistakes that we do… And yeah, let’s hope Sweden will play good hockey tonight as well. We did beat the Americans last night which was very nice. But I am waiting for a game against Canada… this year we will have to win or there will be no living with Mélyssa afterwards ;)

10:30

Yes, I watched too much TV this weekend, and mostly sports. Well, we also watched “Forrest Gump” on Sunday… I really like that movie, even though I’m not very fond of Tom Hanks in general. And my sister cried like mad, of course! Apart from that I wrote my letter to Mélyssa, did some shopping, cross-stitched, studied some French (well, very little but more than nothing) and well… been mostly lazy… I’m very good at being lazy, that much is obvious, eh?

13:17

Damn! The office is so cold today. I have cut the tips from a pair of work gloves so that I can type without my hands freezing too much… and I had to put the heater on again *sigh* I don’t understand why it should be so cold, outside there is 20 degrees. This morning it was raining and that made the entire city feel like a green house or something… warm and humid. It’s quite tiring to bike in that kind of climate, but at the same time it is very pleasant to see the trees and bushes all green and the trees blossoming. I love this time of year! 

Water diamonds

Wednesday, 21 April 2004 15:40
Wednesday is almost over! At least the work part of it. That’s nice. I was very, very sleepy this morning. I hate early mornings. I usually feel so tired I almost feel sick. Ah well, now I’m feeling better. But I’ve lost appetite lately. I don’t know why. I’m not depressed or anything, but I don’t feel like eating… which means I must force myself to eat and I hate that. I hope this passes soon.

The spring weather is not reliable at the moment… it changes between rain, grayness and sunlit sky. It’s hard to know what will come of it, better to just let it surprise you. Yesterday evening after I had spent some time shopping in town I biked home and I crossed the graveyard… the grass in there was full of water drops from the afternoon rain and the glittered wonderfully in the sunshine, like zillions of diamonds. It was so pretty that it almost broke my heart!

I got a letter from Plan yesterday telling me that my sponsor child Lidia and her family have moved out of the community without noticing Plan and that I now will be assigned a new sponsored child. It made me feel sad. I mean, I hope that this move will be good for her but I have no way of knowing… but well, let’s look at it from the bright side, I will still be able to support her village and will get another sponsored child…

Weak

Tuesday, 23 March 2004 17:15
*17:16*
Man! I am really pathetic. No use in trying to hide it. Here I am, in front of the computer, having pizza for dinner... A total loser or what?

I'm trying to listen to Enrique Iglesias (the "Quizás" album, which is a lot better than his latest, English speaking one) but my neighbour obviously wants to listen to something else... or wait a minute, seems like the noise has disappeared. Yay! Maybe the neighbour wants to listen to Enrique too! :)

Our tickets for the trip to Scotland arrived in the mail today. Nice. I still have to book the flight to Canada though. I didn't get time for that today. I need to call the insurance company first to check something out... and I should check if Canada demands something special when it comes to visas or passports or something... but well, anyone who knows me knows that I avoid making phone calls for as long as I possibly can... it's stupid, I know, but I can't help it :/ Anyone know a cure for this type of problem? The worst part is that it's even getting worse, I even have to force myself when I'm to call a friend nowadays :P

My legs are very tired today. I didn't like the stairs between the stock and the office one bit, and biking home was tiring. I will blame Marika for that! Marika being, of course, our step up instructor. And yeah, the cute guy was there again yesterday. Damn, how cute he is :)At least to my opinion... my sister doesn't think so, but we usually don't have the same taste when it comes to guys *s* Hehe, actually we had a little discussion about this before we went home from work - Lilja, Katarina and me - and these things really wary from person to person... L and K both agreed they wanted "manly" guys (even though the two of them don't really like the same types either) but I don't mind a boyish look at all... think I look more for cute than handsome really. Ah well, never mind, I don't count on catching me a guy anytime soon anyway... wouldn't know how. (But I can still enjoy my weekly glmipse of the step up cutie, right? ... and perhaps daydream just a little?)

Me and Sofus sinned again this weekend... that is, against all of our intentions, we bought two pads off Diddl stationary when we found this new cute version(with hidden 3D pictures) at the book store... We are so weak!!

Hehe, and I forced Sofus to watch "Pirates of the Caribbean" with me again on Sunday. Damn, that Orlando fellow sure is H*O*T! :)

Not much is happening in my life. Everything seems to stay the same, only time goes by. But well, at least I have some vacations to look forward to :)

or check out these Google Hacks.


Well... there's still a LOT to go, eh? And I haven't really been to Portugal, only to Madeira which is a part of Portugal... ah well :)There should still be a lifetime of places to go... that's good!

well, who chose those books? too few thrillers :) i wan't to make my own list. hehe... but i doubt i'll find the time....

*11:43*

The fog has taken over the city again… I can hardly see anything outside the window. That is kind of boring, makes me feel locked up somehow… Not that I look out the window that much, but still… when you look outside and all you see is a gray wall, that feels kind of boring… But they’re playing a happy song by Bosson on the radio so I can’t feel that low after all… This day has been okay so far. I wasn’t that tired when I woke up and it wasn’t that bad to bike and I haven’t got that much or that little to do… I am beginning to feel a bit sleepy now though… not to mention hungry.

 The weekend passed by very quickly. (In fact all of last week did) I don’t remember doing anything special really… watching too much TV while cross-stitching, biking to the place where our new office will be to check the distance (it wasn’t that bad, slightly over seven kilometers… which means about two kilometers more each way compared to now), shopping just a little bit (nothing exciting), cleaning my room (damn it was dusty!)… Like I said, nothing exciting…

 Valentine’s day passed by pretty much unnoticed… which was just as well… when you’re single and lonely that is the best option, I guess. I hardly gave it any though, which is an uncommon thing for me… I can’t remember a Valentine’s Day when I’ve not been feeling at least a little sad about the fact that there is no one special in my life. Of course, I’m not happy about it, but this year that didn’t mean that I was depressed just because it was Valentine’s Day. I think that it is worse when there is someone special that you think of but that you just can’t have… it’s harder to be depressed about the fact that you can’t spend Valentine’s with that unknown Prince Charming than when you dream of someone in particular… someone with a smile and a face and eyes to long for…

Friday 13th

Friday, 13 February 2004 13:45

*9:31*

Oh, this will probably be an extremely slow day. Right now we have absolutely nothing to do. It’s nice to not be crowded with work but it is rather boring to not have any work at all… The day goes so slowly! Outside the world is foggy… the buildings that are a short distance away have pretty much disappeared… Hisingen is almost gone as well… A whole island lost in the fog! *smile* At least it’s not so cold today… Yesterday when I biked to work it was cold and hard, stinging snow kept falling in my face… I surely didn’t like that.

 My legs are very tired today. I did a class of aerobic yesterday. The first time I did an actual class, until now I’ve only been to the intro class… and I think it wouldn’t have mattered if I had been to one hundred intro classes I still wouldn’t have been able to keep up with the real deal! But even though I couldn’t really keep up (I felt really clumsy even though I bet I wasn’t the only one) I obviously got exercise cause my legs would prefer to not move today. One would think it would be harder on the legs to do step-up but I am actually more tired in the legs than after the step-up classes… The training place is still rather crowded… people are still trying to live up to their New Year’s resolutions, I suppose… judging from how things usually work, they will probably be dropping off soon… sad but true… and it’s actually nicer to train when the classes are not crowded…

 *13:26*

Boh, now I am depressed. I found some nice pictures to use as live journal icons and sweet [livejournal.com profile] moon_eclipse made them the right size for me… and then I realize that I am only allowed to have THREE tiny icons. That’s mean! I want to have more! But well, at least I could add a nice little picture of Darren. If I’ve understood things right he’s working on a new album… or rather it seems like the album is pretty much done and we only have to await the post-production… I can’t wait! But wouldn’t it be even better if Savage Garden got back together making a new album?! There’s no harm in wishing for it at least, right?

“Vous serez peut-être un peu préoccupé ou tendu. Si c’est le cas, tâchez de passer un moment auprès de quelqu’un avec qui vous vous entendez bien. Vous aurez besoin de vous rapprocher de ceux qui sont sur la même longueur d’ondes que vous. Intérêts communs à partager. Chance matérielle.”

 Well, I can’t say that I fully understood today’s horoscope, but sure *smile* Am I a bit preoccupied and tense? I would rather say bored, but sure *s*

 By the way – anyone got any scary Friday 13th stories today? My bike was a mess this morning… that might be because of the day, right? :/ I hope it will manage to take me home…

 

 

 

 

 

“Vous pourriez prendre conscience d’une difficulté que vit un proche. Votre support sera apprécié. Moment bien choisi pour mettre de l’ordre dans vos affaires. Vous réussirez toute tâche que vous entreprendrez aujourd’hui. En matière d’argent, faites votre budget, vous verrez plus clair.”

Today was a good day for putting my affairs in order? Like financial affairs? I’ve sent a letter to Greenpeace and told them I don’t want to give them money anymore… that only took me like three years… since I was fooled into it from the beginning. I was stupid enough to talk to one of their people in town and then of course I couldn’t refuse… I’ve been thinking about quitting it forever, but I never got around to it. Now I did. And I don’t feel bad about it – I still support Amnesty and have a sponsor child. I am a good person. *smile* Well, if the horoscope means personal affairs I don’t have any so I can’t put them to order, right?

We’ve had our last session with Gudrun today, She told us a lot of facts about the Chinese way of seeing things… with the elements of nature and stuff like that. It was pretty interesting but it took way too much of our lunch break. When she finally finished it was like a quarter to one or something! Now we’ll just have to see if we ever get around to doing the training without her… I hope so, cause I do think that it is good for us.

Today has been a rather stressful day so far so I hope it will calm down a bit. At least time has been moving fast and it’s not that much left of the work day. I could really need to go home and relax a bit. I would very much like to take a long, warm, relaxing bath tonight!

Anyway – I think that mail must have beaten a record yesterday… I received Renate’s letter yesterday… and I mailed my last letter to her on Wednesday 4th. That sure was fast, right? I wish mail was always that fast! :) So if Mély really mails her letter to me today she would have my reply next Tuesday… Well, we all know that is not going to happen – but the idea is nice, right? So anyway, I spent most of last night writing my reply to Renate… and then I watched a nature program and then I read some… and that’s that!

“Love is a catastrophe
Look what it’s done to me
Brought me down here so low
stranded, nowhere to go

No concentration
just rerunning conversation
Trying to understand
how I fell into this quicksand

What happens next?
With life I’m unimpressed
Pain like a cutter’s knife
Never been lonelier in my life

Who issued the instruction
for this mad act of destruction?
An end to equilibrium
Fate laughs:
Look what we’ve done to him!

High wind through the trees
Falling November leaves
A weak sun hanging low
Summer seems so long ago

All my former dreams
tender romantic schemes
revealed as so naive
To think I could believe

In love as the kindest law
not as a declaration of war
on my life and sanity
Now I know at last for me
love is a catastrophe”

Monday. I think almost everyone hates that word. Monday mornings are awful, aren’t they? Especially today. I thought I would never be able to drag myself out of the bed. Frankly, I have no idea how I finally did it! And then it was so cold. I wasn’t prepared for that. I mean, I had looked at the thermometer but somehow my mind still wasn’t set to the fact that we had –5 degrees again. I felt cold all the way to work. The city is covered in a light coat of snow today. Somehow it started snowing last night. I was really surprised to see snowflakes falling from the sky suddenly when I looked out of the window. Earlier in the day there had been no signs of clouds and stuff like that. Today will be a long day, as we have a office meeting after normal hours. We do not look forward to it, I bet it will be boring. And if we discuss something it won’t lead to anything anyway – that’s a well-known fact!

Well, yesterday I really didn’t do much of interest… an hour of aerobic/step, reading, watching TV(Fab 5 and Indiana Jones), studying a bit of French, cross-stitching… well, that is about it. Oh, and I made a nice discovery last night while reading the paper… The movie “Ned Kelly” with Orlando Bloom will be out on cinemas on Friday. I really must see it *s* Orlando rocks!
