Got my latest addition to my Sigur Rós collection today. The “We play endlessly” album, which is a collection given away free with the “The Independent”. The nine songs are picked from three different album, “Takk”, “Heima” and “með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust”. Listening to it now, and it’s a good collection. The funny thing is that I bought this CD, and on the back side it says “NOT FOR SALE”. We’ll, guess I did something illegal there. Three times I did, because I got this from ebay, and I had four different bids on four different actuion. And I won three of them. So still waiting for the two others. Hopefully coming this week. I’m also waiting on the latest album from Imogen Heap! Please come tomorrow!
On another occasion. I’ve been reading my brothers “Computer Arts” magazine, and I found a very easy “copy & paste” tutorial about how to make your own WordPress theme from a static HTML & CSS site! How cool isn’t that? So now I’m beginning to think about making a new theme. Making a new theme for my blog, is something I’ve been talking about very often. So don’t hold your breath, don’t even bet about me getting a theme done in the next month. But maybe if we’re lucky I’ll make a new Christmas theme. Can’t use this green one when the snow starts to fall!
When I got home today (about 30 minutes ago) there where something in the mail for me! Finally! Since I’ve been ebay a bit lately I’ve always hope that I would get something every time I checked the mail. And finally there where! It wasn’t something from ebay, but a CD i order from PlayTrade. Albert Hammond, Jr. – Yours To Keep. A nice album with a beautiful cover. Which I have posted under the “read more” part. Didn’t find the back part, so need to scan that in when I get time to hook up the scanner. I also got a package slip stating that there is something for me in the post office. Wonder what it can be?! Probably another CD, but not sure. Guess I’ll find out tomorrow. I will of course keep you updated!

I forgot to post pictures of my Jónsi & Alex – Riceboy Sleep Special Edition I order. Got it a couple of weeks a go. Not much to say, that it is smaller then I thought it would be, but still very pretty. It all feels very well done.
A night home alone. It’s been a little while since I was home alone at night. It feels good, but also a bit lonely. Guess it’s not much I can do about other. Other then go to bed.
So, was at school again today. Felt good to be back, even though my class doesn’t start before next week. It’s gaffers(?) week, or “pre-semester party week, get together and meet the new students” week. I also planned to play squash tonight, but no one else then me was there, so played a bit alone before I headed home. Well, didn’t go straight home, needed to get some boxes from a store and ended up buying a lot of other stuff…

YogiTea of the day: To be calm is the highest achievement of the self.
Installing Windows 98 on my computer ended up being impossible! First I tried to install it from inside of windows, but then I ended up with not enough disc space. Then I tried to boot it up and try to install it from DOS, which none of them worked. So I found my other computer a tried to hook up the harddisc and install from there, but no. Nothing worked. So started fomating one of the disc to install win98 to that one, but then I suddenly needed another floppy disc, but I was installing from CD. So I ended up just giving up. Packed it all down and went to clean up the kicthen. Hit the jump to see some pictures, and there is also two from my new layer of paint on my wall.
