Pumpkin Carving

Today me and Marianne are having a pre-halloween evening, pumpkin carving and stuff. Tomorrow we will have a horror movie marathon, eating sandwich layer cake and other goodies, some of which needs preparing.

In a couple of hours we will go out with Fredde, Ester and possibly Moa to a Japanese-Korean-Monglian restaurant, so I have time to post a few pics from the evening so far:

ILL ON INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY

TODAY IS THE INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY, SO IN HONOR OF THIS I WILL OF COURSE WRITE THIS POST AS ONE SHOULD.

I AM ILL AGAIN – WHY OH WHY DID IT HAD TO BE ON SUCH A FESTIVE DAY LIKE THIS? 😉

IT STARTED YESTERDAY WITH COUGHING AND FEELING WORN. IN THE AFTERNOON I HAD A SLIGHT FEVER AND BY EVENING THE FEVER HAD RISEN ABOUT 2.5°C. I FEEL SLIGHTLY BETTER TODAY BUT NOW I HAVE A STIFF NECK AND SORE MUSCLES IN MY STOMACH AND BACK (FROM THE COUGHING). HOPING IT’S NOT THE BACON FLUE THIS TIME.

GOOD THING I HAVE MY NETBOOK, SPENDING TIME IN BED WOULD BE FAR WORSE WITHOUT IT. SLIGHT SURFING AND WATCHING NEW AND OLD MOVIES THAT HAS BEEN LYING THERE FOR FAR TOO LONG. I THINK I’LL WATCH UP SOME TIME TONIGHT, JUST GOT A HD VERSION OF IT (THANKS, CBGB).

OH, IF YOU HATE THE CAPS LOCK KEY AS MUCH AS I NORMALLY DO, I CAN RECOMMEND A NIFTY LITTLE TOOL TO DISABLE IT THAT CAN BE DOWNLOADED HERE.

There was a strange man on my balcony this morning

Today when I got out of the shower and was walking across the living room to get my clothes I saw a strange man standing on my balcony.

He was dressed in a blue plastic body suit, wearing a gas mask and some kind of container on his back. He was using what looked like a small circle saw to cut into the wall.
Three quick questions appeared in my head during the second I first saw him:

  1. How did he get onto my balcony (which is a couple of floors up)
  2. Why is he dressed like he is dealing with an Ebola infection from outer space?
  3. What the hell is he doing to my wall?

Then I remembered. They apparently used some toxic material in the joints when building our house. Something that the housing company now has been ordered to sanitate. So the answers to my questions were:

  1. Using a crane.
  2. To avoid contact with the toxins
  3. Cutting away the outer joints.

Speaking of Obama

Adam pointed me to this neat comic explaining just how Obama managed to get the Nobel Prize. It’s the only explanation.

How Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize
How Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize

Speaking of Obama and peace, I just read that he has ordered another 34’000 troops into Afghanistan and is about to test the “Massive Ordnance Penetrator”, the largest non-nuclear bomb ever, weighing in a bit over 13 tons.

Still, it’s probably way better than what John McCain & Sara Palin would have done (not including what is stated in the comic above).
