I wish life could be more like american soapoperas. Then, whenever things go dramatic, you can just fade the picture down and pick things up again later.
I don't quite know what I am yet.I've tried smoking a pipe, flipping coins, listening exclusively to Franz Crunis. (...) I've even had a brief hat-phase. But nothing stuck.
We kissed until our lips felt swollen. Her mouth tasted of milk, polar mints and denver international.
One day I asked Jordana if she was now my girlfriend, and she said "I'll think about it" But she meant "Yes, we are now as one".
Submarine (2010) Richard Ayoade. Never have the patience to complete a film when I'm on my own and
don't necessarily have to watch it, but atleast I watched parts of Submarine today. It's rather funny, and the
main character looks insanely much like Ron Weasley, apart from the non-ginger-thing. (Oh and sorry about
spelling mistakes and such, but sometimes I really can't tell exactly what he's on about...)
Made fruit drinks last weekend. Or I didn't participate much in the making to be honest, more on the drinking part.
Me and Ida got the birthday present of going karting. I really was terrified and convinced I was going to die.
When Ida said to me last week "see you on monday" I replied "yeah, I'll make sure I find a coffin until then"...
...But it all went well, number one woop woop. No this photo is a complete lie, need I say I was the last one
to reach the goal line? Well I was. I was also run past by some crazy danes like three times. On the brightside, atleast I looked fabolous in my overall one-piece from VOLVO.
With this photo I'd like to say that atleast I know how to entertain myself while waiting for my friends to arrive...
Last night we had dinner at a, bit over-exposed, deserted beach about a kilometre away from my house.
I had made this lush greek pie, stuffed with olives, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, spinach and pine nuts.
The pink unicorn from last weekend has withered, my latest tattoo addition is therefore these two birds. Coolio.
9 CRIMES (DEMO).
MON NOVEAU FAUTEUIL VIEUX
Very bad light in the first photo (sun has set and winter is approaching, ahh!!) but here's my new inherited
furniture, the pink armchair and the golden greek god-mirror. No idea where to really put them thus my room
is rather petite, but atleast they'll probably blend in better once I get the walls repainted. It's way too dark in here.
MAIS OUI, MON CHERI
She smokes clouds every single night
Should be glad that she's alive
In her head, she sees butterflies with pistols
Been really interested on hearing more stories by Alex Schulman since I heard his "summer show" on the radio from 2009 (it was heartbreakingly brilliant!!). Seemed to be haunted by the idea thus old articles et cetera has seemed to cross my way ever since, now I've finally started reading his debut novel, about his father. I've only gotten to page 46 but so far, so good.
Utkast: Juli 23, 2011
säga/gud vad du var söt när du var barn
Had a wee pink unicorn tattooed on my wrist this weekend.
är någon annans
Exhausted. Been just laying around by the TV for like three hours since I got back from another two
at the opticians. The optician lady gave me like tonnes of chances to guess which letters where on the board,
which was rather annoying, I want to be able to see - not make my way by guessing!!
I tend to have this epochs, like living purely on totellini, listening to the same song until your ears start
bleeding or reading just the books by Jonas Gardell, at the beginning of this summer I could only eat avocado
and boiled eggs for breakfast, right now I think these amateur articles are the newest thing on the list;
it's so much fun. sERIously. At least to put it together in the end. I should start working by ~chosen themes~
etc!! Noo four days left til _-working_life-_ begins, it'll stop soon I assure uuuu
SADNESS IS A BLESSING.
Getting quite into this; creating fake magazine spreads. Bit pissed that the "photography by" line is
a bit too high up, but whatever. Don't understand how to get tht hype-button working; so just press here
and make my day ladies and gentlemen!x
WHAT WENT DOWN IN ADAM pt 5
Forth day in Amsterdam, yet again (not to be nagging, just don't want to take credit for
anyone else's work) photos are a mixture of my own, Elme's and Marias. Edited by myself.
Friday looked like this:
12:43pm We started the day by wandering around the Albery Cuyp market. It was insanely hot outside.
1:27pm We were supposed to hang out in the Wandel Park that we had passed on the bike tour the day
before, but it was simply too hot to walk all the way there, so we settled with this park which name I can't
seem to remember.
4:02pm Another epic bike-design + a picture I'd simply like to call "the happy truckdriver"
5:15pm This poor little thing was suffering from overheating, allergies and asthma, and a cold on top of that.
She simply passed out like this in the bed when we got back to the room.
6:24pm In a park next to the hostel was this lovely tree house.All too exhausted by the extreme heating,
this is how we ended our evening. Then me and Sarra went to Subway for a dinner around 9, which was
an indeed very epic ending to a friday night in one of the world's coolest cities, having the sub of the day, lol.
Hung out in the barn today again. It started raining too, a rather epic summer skyfall. If you're
bored but don't really feel like hanging out with anyone, you could always have a photoshoot
with yourself. In my humble opinion I think it's quite a genious way to spend time (but then again,
COME HERE/KITTY KITTY.
4 photos with cats/cleaning the computer pt.2
Cleaning the computer. Here's some stuff lying around.
WHAT WENT DOWN IN ADAM pt 4
Third day in l'Amsterdam:
Artwork on our hotel wall.
10:32am When we walked outside after breakfast one of the bridges was suddenly going up in the air. I was AMAZED.
Street wandering. I was struck by the thought that they are probably selling vintage-prostitution-outfits
in the 2nd hand shops. Talk about clothes with a story.
Figured I should just put all the coffeeshop photos from this day in a pile like this. As you can
see they were quite a few.
We stepped into this childrens shop and we were exited like, well, children. I love those little
telescopes that you hold up towards a light and it's these lovely shapes and figures and colors inside. They
have a cool advanced name too. Maria got very fond of the stuffed Muppet, I adore that photo.
Continuous wandering through the centre.
4:15pm At four we were located at Mike's Bike Tours...
4:46pm ...To go on a bike tour, us and hell of a lot middle-aged women! It was hilarious, although the jokes
of the canadian tour guide seemed quite rather rehearsed. And I was so so nervous before though, cause the traffic in southern Europe is CRAZY, but I survived!!!
Me and Mariale's little swan family <3<3<3
9:45pm On our way out in the evening, '*~'ex1ted_girl___93'~*'
11:39pm After two bad judgement-choices (middle-aged people shaking their boootey to Rihanna songs)
we ended up at some raving place, though we found ourselves surrounded by all those darn pretty dutch
girls. p.s. I <3 this last photo of Elme and Mariale. d.s.
So I've been sat with the scanner for a while. Considering to make something like a header for the blog.
I dont know. So therefore ~questiontime~ QUestion one: any favourites?? (oBviously I'd crop them down etc) Question 2: Is it OK to make potatoballs at quarter to twelve pm? My mother doesn't seem to think so, she's just looking at me like I'd be the sadest person on the planet.
WHAT WENT DOWN IN ADAM pt 3
Second part of the second day:
Had a toast at some café for afternoon snack (should've taken pancakes cause the dutch are
supposed to be, again this is according to google, famous for their pancakes. But ONE pancake was like 6
euros, quelle effing robbery!!)
Emily was being artistic with sunglass-reflections.
Myself, I was amused by how tiny the euros are. This is a swedish note with the same value, waaay bigger!
The man in the background is rather charming.
Emily wanted to see how the back of her shirt looked like, or something like that. This is what it looked like.
2:46pm Before entering the house of Anne Frank, which they've turned into a museum. It was really interesting (and ofcourse it was also prohibitied to take photos inside)
6:36pm Had thai food for dinner. It was gert lush.
Sat down just outside the dinner place because of food choma.
7:59pm Yet another food stop (felt like all we did this day was eating. And museu-ming.) I quite like how
extremely cool that indoor cat looks, sitting next to its (I presume) owner. We were also sat drooling over
how insanely gorgeous Natalie Portman is.
8:55pm We moved closer to the Red Light District and were sat by the channel outside "The erotic cellar" for
a great while, waiting for the burglary of the night to arrive.
It's really funny how the amsterdamians seem to do the "pussy patrol" (driving around, listening to loud
music, scouting for girls etc) in boats rather than by car.
10:22pm Rather shaken after the walk through the red light district. We needed some beer to calm our
nerves down. I'd say the area was fascinating, in a repulsive way. Or repulsive, in a fascinating way. Can't
11:23pm The end.
WHAT WENT DOWN IN ADAM pt 2
Again, photos are a mixture from my own, Elme's and Marias cameras. Here's the first part of the second day, Wednesday i.e., and it looked a bit like this:
After the hotel-breakfast we spent some time in the pharmacy, thus all of us had a bit of a cold.
9:56am Me and Elme got way behind the others while we were capturing Amsterdam. It has so much cool
stuff, especially bike-designs.
10:22am We stumbled across the "iamsterdam" sign on our way to the museums and stopped to pose.
10:34am Crossing the "Museum Square" (No idea whether that's what it's called, but it was a square - surrounded by museums so it SHOULD be called Museum Square.)
11:14am Van Gogh museum.
11:29am ...And this is how Elme found us outside the museum a short while later. I can't really say I'm
into museums, atleast not with ancient artwork, possibly some contemporary stuff. Other than that, I'm just
not intellectual enough,he-he!
1:13pm One of the best things we did was by far the tour on the pedalo/water bike; it was HILARIOUS but
yet rather creepy cause the channels are so crowded with traffic. A lot of people seemed amused when they
passed us by in the giant tourist boats and we were panicing over the 'giant waves'. Me and Sarra were a real dream team when it came to driving the boat; we even saved the lenscap of a woman who had dropped it down
in the channel and couldn't reach it. ~**Heroes of the day!!!**~
WHAT WENT DOWN IN ADAM pt 1
Instead of just "the postcards" (1
) I chose to make more of a "what really went down in amsterdam"-thingy,
it's like an exclusive "behind the scenes"-post (lol I've been watching way too much top model today, so I blame
Ms Banks for my jolly linguistics.) Photos are a mixture of my own, Elme's and Marias cameras. Slight edits by myself. Times are approximate thus I suspect my picasa-program is telling me lies. WELL, enjoy!!
we were after schedule, finally stood at the busstop outside our house on Freemantle Road, had
just missed a bus but yet rather exited.
Pretty much exactly one hour before we were due to depart we were located at the Bristol Airport.
From the Schipol Airport we took the (please note the awesomeness) DOUBLE DECKER-TRAINS
to the Centraal Station.
Just past eight we were checked-in at the third floor of Hotel Hortus, with SUPER-STEEP stairs.
I love the fact that the middle-aged woman in the lobby was sat smoking a joint when we came down to
enjoy the free-access coffeemachine; making an attempt to read the map on where to go for dinner.
8:35pm Some sights on the way. Very liberal streetdecorations, hinting at the 2nd photo. I walked passed
and then stopped and turned around a bit confused, but then again - realizing we were in Amsterdam.
8:46pm Finally found a place to eat that wasn't insanely expensive (we were walking around the most touristy
area) We were afraid most places would be closed cause apparently they have early dinner in Amsterdam
(says google atleast) so we were really happy to receive our pizzas with no problemo.
9:42pm Walked around trying to find a working cashpoint for ages. Here's two sights from the way.
STARS AND STRIPES.
U WERE RIGHT ABOUT THE STARS.
more punk meets halloween today than I did yesterday, but I do quite like it. Blue
highlights, woop woop. Oui?
COFFEE TO WAKE THE DEAD.
Met up with Frida on Monday for the first time in forever, definately over a year, it was really nice. Old friendship never really seems to go out of date!
Auntie and my super-cool cousin
Me and my imaginary-uncle Michael (and yes, I AM pregnant - I had way too much cakes with milk, a
lactose baby was definately in the making)
My cousin and his soon bride-to-be, they r so so pretty together
HONEY/BLOW YOURSELF TO PIECES
the papercuts/the cheating lovers
Thus insomnia is my new bestfriend, I was wandering around in my grandmothers house (after an
impulse of re-decorating my room, I didn't finish so now everything's just in a big mess, furniture across
the whole floor) at 5 am this morning. I had to get my camera when I saw the morning sun hitting the
chandelier (yeah that sounded very cheesy) Yesterday we switched the artwork on the walls to her own,
that she has kept in her wardrobe for the last decades; some of it is actually quite impressive.
Miss you/savner dere/te extraño/kaipaan sinua!!!! ps. blame google translate for spelling mistakes,
I'm just trying to be charming! ps2. oh and by the way juni your bra is showing.
Next to my friend's house the local 'pony club' has put up a paddock, so it's like tonnes of horses there. We walked pass there last night. Horses are terrifying, but absolutely stunning, creatures; I must say.
THE WORLD AT LARGE.
Just had this really epic bike tour home that was supposed to take 30 minutes but ended up taking an hour.
thundering across the tree tops, and the world was dressed in this beautiful fog. I'm just way
too 'up in the spin' to fall asleep now. (Well to tell the truth I couldn't even if I tried, because of the fucking
jolly birds singing constantly outside my window.)
Yesterday my mother felt someone staring at her while she was cleaning out the gutters, it was this little
boreal owl who couldn't sleep, possibly because of the insane heating wave that has been striking lately.
Myself I'm just hiding inside, away from all nasty bugs and getting totally dehydrated, watching crappy TV
like "dad camp" (but c'mon, I haven't watched crappy TV for 10 months, then it's kind of OK)
be my little rock'n'roll queen
nice spot from my piggelin breakfast on the skirt aswell
you are the sun/you are the only one.
4 photos from my brothers appartement.
Sat in my brothers
flat cutting and paste:ing in my new moleskine,woop woop. Good times are rolling,
finally having a parental free zone (are ehm..two days being back home?) and real quality time like chocolate
chip cookies and garlic stuffed olives for dinner. Adult life RULES.
I've found so many gorgeous frames now that we're cleaning out my grandmothers house. Would be really
really nice to do something like this. My favourites are no 2 with galaxies and no 4 with the sea.
LA PAIX ET L'AMOUR.
Sum up of the weekend
in Borlänge: Deadmau5 was beyond epicness, Bob Dylan should just realize that
there's a time for everything and his is no longer, Mando Diao put me on some sort of emotional rollercoaster
and I felt like one of those tears-of-joy young teen girls standing in the front, I blame Coco is so so so so cool
and i love her accent and I want to marry Paolo Nutini. Gutted that I missed pretty much the entire jj-concert and
I won't eat cheese-spread for a long long time.
Josefin celebrated her 18th birthday during Kings of Leon and i tried to capture it but it was difficult, haha!
Happy birthday again sweetie!!
Playschedule + cuppa noodles
Quite a failed design of the "A" when you go to Sweden, since we have the Å letter aswell. I.e., now it
says like "I blue-me coco"
But oh-my-god she was cool
Sat waiting for DEADMAU5 one whole hour after OSKAR LINNROS (I <3 U) stopped playing. We past time
by drawing the world-famous Umeå sign on people.
Best thing about being a girl is definately when some guy walk up to you and offers you to sit on his shoulders
during a deadmau5 concert. It was fucking miles and miles of people behind us just to see the canadian dj!
Some very dedicated fans.
Mando concert. Can finally agree with Filippa that Gustaf Norén is really rather gorgeous, he looks like
a worse version of Jude Law, in my humble opinion. It was fucking beautiful anyway, I loved the Sugarplum
dedication/cover of "Sweet Jackie".
Confetti rain at le grande finale with Håkan Hellström.
Started fixing on my "leftover-coffee-cups-photos-getting-a-purpose" flickrpage last week, check
it out either clicking the photo or here.
It includes at the moment around seven different cups, at
different times, and the different stories behind them. Been trying to post some peace photos this
evening but it just won't work, you can upload like one photo per time. Wwoop woop ~in sad mode~
ace of spades.
just had my first shower in five days, how disgusting can one get. peace and love was
really rather amazing. tired of this blog and tired of internet in general, just deactivated
my facebook account for a while (next month?)so if you need me i guess i'll just hang
around here. gonna go pass out in my bed now xx
