First thought: Every Monday I play squash, and today was no different. Game was fun, put this thought came while I was showering. Because some other dude had forgot his shampoo and body soap. So then I thought, is it okay if I borrow some? What if he entered while I was using his soap? I never found out, since the thought was so long and “deep”, that I was finished showering before I thought for myself, “go for it”. Maybe next time.
Second thought: This was while I waited for the subway after showering. Was on my way home. I spotted a cute girl on the other side of the track (first I thought it was my ex girlfriend, but no) listening to music. She was tapping her foot very gently and looking around. Girls are so sweet. “Anywho”, how cool would it been, if we where able to see what other people was listening too. Like a little text hovering over their heads or something. Would be awesome, and so much easier to pick girls up. “Hey, I see you like Sigur Rós too!”.
Third thought: Came while I was riding the tram (the subway never came) home, I was reading “Der Zauberberg” (The Magic Mountain) by Thomas Mann (I was reading it in norwegian). This is a book I picked up because it was mention a lot in “Norwegian Wood” by Haruki Murakami (a very good book!). The main person reads it several times. I’ve also talked to my dad about it, and he said it is a classic which people should read. Sadly he hasn’t read it yet, so I thought I’ll borrow it at the library. Which I’ve now have done. I’ve read about 25 pages, and I don’t really like it. Maybe it’s to early to say anything about it yet. So aiming to read another 75 pages, before I decide to leave it or continue. I think it is too old for me. Not sure how to explain, but I’ve got a feeling.
Tried out my new black and yellow new squash shoes today. They where great! Still need to use them a bit more before they’ll be perfect, but promising. Played a lot better then last time.
As the computer geek I am, I just had to get these black and yellow hi-tech squash shoes. As you know my other pair got stolen, so needed to get me some new ones. Ended up trying some new ones, instead of just buying the same old. Not that I didn’t like my Prince, but we’ve had just gotten a new deal with Lysaker Squash club. So headed over there to check out what they had. The young boy behind the counter with South Park on the TV, convinced me that these where the right shoes for me. So guess I’ll find out later today when I play. Hopefully they will be. As these where around 200NOK more expensive without the discount.
A lot happened today. First I wake up to find out someone have stolen my new squash shoes. So had to take my old ones to practice today. That sucks! Now I need to spend another 1000NOK on new shoes! Unfair, what have I done to karma to deserve that. Hum…
Luckily it got better at school. I finished my home exam in C, one day ahead. Cheers. Now I don’t need to stay at school all the day tomorrow. So now I can go and have dinner with my dad.
I also got three packages in the mail. Couldn’t guess any of them, and one was even marked with figurines. And I hadn’t bought that! So was tripping up the five floors so I could open them up! One was the third Sigur Rós album I won, second was Sega Superstar Tennis which I won in a competition over at Retro1.no. BroboCop was the competition holder. Thank you! The last one was Record of Lodoss War. A great game for the Dreamcast. A bit rare, so I’m quiet happy with it.
And here is one of the Record of Lodoss War
I finally got around to buy myself some new squash shoes! They feel really great and can’t wait to try them out the first coming Monday! It was about time to. I was playing this morning and I lost more than one point just because of my slippery shoes. Thats no fun! I’ve posted some pictures after the more link.
Other than new shoes, I’ve been to work, school and Oslo “culturenight” as it’s literal translated. Watched some amazing firework. It was so quiet and beautiful!
“Anywho”, time to go to bed. Up early to wash clothes and then I’m going to check out a gallery at ten, and Ikea after that. Blog you tomorrow too, probably not that late. Or technical it’s today.

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.
I played 18 hole yesterday for the very first time. It was fun, but also very exhausting both physical and psychic. So the second round didn’t go that well, and my brother started joking on the last two holes. So it didn’t go that well. I even gave up on the last hole. Which is very short, but I missed on two balls, so it’s okay. At least I think so.
So that was yesterday, and today is today. I’m cutting my hair tomorrow, was very close too doing it today, but I had my last class to go to. So asked to get an appointment tomorrow. So ten o’clock my life’s change, a bit at least. Other then that, nothing much happened. Been printing out notes that I will bring to my exam. Need to sort them out and color them (so it will be easier to see what’s important and not). Not very fun, but one more week and I’m nearly done! Yay!
Squash soon, that will be fun! Need to buy some new training shoes, but since I bought some awesome FootJoy golf shoes yesterday, I think I have to wait another month before I can afford new squash shoes.
Some nights I just can’t get to bed early. This is one of these nights. Been to work today, after that I went straight to play squash. I was in another Squash competition. Club “championship”. Didn’t go as well as last time, second last, but it’s fun. And that the most important. Plus I have an excuse, my shoes are really slippery. So didn’t get any good grip. After the competition we went to an bar at the campus and ate pizza. yummy! So now I’m back at the apartment. A funny is that I forgot my keys at work, so had to cycle back to get them when I got home. That sucked.
I’ve also downloaded and installed Windows 7. Looks good. I think (or just believe) it starts a little faster than Vista. Haven’t notice much different yet, but I’ll let you know when I do. I’ve also changed my mind about the new theme. I’m thinking about sticking with the theme I have now, and only change the colors. Going to be much better. Hopefully I can start with it tomorrow, since I’m not going to do what I had planned.
I got my first golf set today (pictures down below). The reason you may ask, well. My brother, cousin and uncle are all playing, and they have been trying to get me to join for some time now. And finally I complied and said I’ll join. So I’m aiming to take the green card next weekend of the weekend after that. Depends when the next squash tournament is. So today we went to the driving range, bunker, and the putting green. Never tried the last two, and is was super fun. Think I had some beginner luck. At least with me nearly two hundred meter long drive! So really looking forward to get the green card so I can start playing for real. Hopefully I will go back to the driving range on Tuesday.
I’ve also been sorting my retro collection. Put all the extra accessories into two small boxes. Make it much easier to get hold of them when needed.
And now I’m off to bed. Good night!
Yogitea of the day: Inspiring others towards happiness brings you happiness.
I found a pink pig today! As I was walking home from squash, I kicked something pinkish. First I didn’t see what it was, but when I was close enough to kick it again, I saw it was a little pink pig! Of course not a real one, but still very cute. So I picked it up and brought it home. So now it’s been washed and is laying next to mew two dogs (not real either) and smiling. He/she looks so happy!
Other than that my day as been as any other day. Been at school, started working on my next java task. This one includes GUI which is little fun to hard code. Had been so much easier to just use a “what you see is what you get” editor. After school I met a friend of mine because I was buying his Playstation, which I did. Took some pictures of it and the Nintendo 64 I got yesterday. So hit the jump if you want to see those and the pig.
Oh…remember the nuts I bought which was in the wrong package? I got an answer and they are sending me a compensation!
