On the airport bus to Stockholm. Viking packed off for a week at his grandparents. Feels strange

Contributing to the current Twitter overcapacity problem by twittering about it. Meta-fail
The music I like the most is more than 20 years old, or might as well be
I wonder if the fly travelling with me on the bus is a harbinger of a global pandemic. That would kinda suck
Stuck at Haga in a traffic queue. This never happens with the train
I BLAME VISTA
planning a plane trip tomorrow, Viking’s first!
Lovely sunny day, not too hot either

Oh IM, where art thou?
In queue for a double kabanoss from Günthers
Finally got to order, 2 helpings of the hot sauce, strong mustard und saurkraut!
I find it “amusing” that Outlook hangs while searching through mails. That is, if “amusing” is a synonym to “bollocks” in your language

still no IM, I feel like someone waiting for Godot (or rather, the Giro)

suspecting Alastair Reynold’s “House of Suns” is a previously refused work now published to take advantage of his current status
Spain-France is on, least interesting of the quarterfinals if you ask me
wicked stink of polyvinyl chloride from the giant inflatable hand Viking got in his Maxbox
penalties are cheesy but great TV
talking to the taxman, but not about poetry
I’ve just re-enabled TwitterSync on Facebook, this is a test of the functionality
hmm TwitterSync can’t update my Facebook status, reverting to the “official” Twitter FB app
Viking: “Why do they have goalies? It’s too hard with them!”
