Norwai.

Norway was cool and horrible at the same time. The island was beautiful, with clear water, majestic mountains and seagulls that actually did not shit all over the place. The horrible part consisted of Sophia's dad, who is a neurotic patriarch with serious anger issues. Most of my time was spent fishing, exploring the nearby islands, playing with the dogs, and being bored and annoyed when seasickness and storm prevented me from getting in the boat. Pictures will be uploaded when I get back home.

This week is spent with Sophia, Yoshi and Yorda back in civilization. Or whatever you wanna call it. We're playing Guitar Hero til our fingers ache, eating massive amounts of popcorn (which we compensate for by not eating anything else) and visiting the local music festival.

Going back home tomorrow. To what I don't know. Seems like the one good thing I had there is slipping away.

all around swell guy!

I'm in PiteƄ, in northern Sweden, waiting for a minibus and a ferry and a boat to take me to an island on the Norwegian coast. No people, plenty of mountains and wildlife and water. Just the way I like it.

That's on Monday. Until then I'll be playing Deathspank with Sophia. Really sweet game.

Nngh.

Had a wonderful weekend with my wonderful Oscar. Being with him is so ridiculously good it's almost criminal. Which is why I'm semi-angsting over going to Norway, which I'll be doing on Friday. I do want to get away from Sweden, I've spent like three months back home now and my travel intestines are itching. But leaving my pƤlskling even for two weeks or so is.. errgh. It's a silly problem, not even a problem really, but I've grown seriously attached to that little bugger and it's gonna be tough not getting to go to sleep buried in his beard at night.

"It's just a virus, you'll be rid of it in 3-4 days". Yeah well it's been THREE WEEKS NOW and it's getting old. So old.

Had an awesome weekend though, I've never met so many cool people in one day in my life before. Oscar and I went to Gothenburg to see a bunch of his friends, and one of mine. We started with my online friend Daniel, whom I've known for like 170 years but never met before. We ate ice cream, went to GameStop, built a scary robot out of trash from McDonald's, and all agreed on the fact that wet tissues are essential for survival.

After Daniel's escape Oscar and I took the long, hard lonely walk to see his friends, whom we were to meet in a highly suspicious area of the city. We were to climb three mountains, cross a river, a desert and a jungle to get there. Okay so maybe we only had to get up one mountain, but it was fucking hot and bothersome, and we had backpacks. So it's almost the same thing. Anyway.
We rang the doorbell and Majk greeted us, sweaty, half naked, and chasing his fully naked son around the apartment. I instantly liked him.

After a short while five people and an ukulele joined us, beer drinking ensued, and life was all good. I rarely meet nice, hilarious and interesting people, so I was pretty much overwhelmed by the fact that they didn't puke on me or throw me off the balcony or anything for simply being there. Instead, they actually spoke to me once in a while. And even stranger, they remembered my name. Baffling, to say the least. Best part was seeing Oscar surrounded by so many people who love him. It made me so happy to see him happy.

Sunday morning we woke up early thanks to almost-two-year-old Tristan. We had ice cream for breakfast, turkish food for lunch, and a hot sticky walk in between. Oscar and I had to leave much too early to get him home for work. On the train we ended up next to a total asshole and a guy with dreads. I wanted to twist their heads off. Instead I fell asleep and appearantly kicked Oscar in the process.

Summary: awesome people, good beer, good hugs, good laughs, lots of Oscar-love. Perfect.
