First real update from Sweden! Yay! Are you as excited as I am?

Eh? ;D

I have a feeling this entry might be a bit longer than the ones I usually do. Ugh. I don't know if I should write everything that's happened or just briefly sum it up or what. Ya... Naa I don't wanna do that.

Finally my computer is here along with the rest of my stuff. It came yesterday, a week after me. Kinda lame, but whatever. It's here! And my computer is set up too! Well mostly anyway. I gave up on my speaker system cuz it is shit. We're just gonna take turns on having sound on our computers (via the stereo). Should prove to be interesting. Biggest problem right now is the amount of noise my monster computer makes. Yuck. Not really sure what to do about that. Our computer friend Daniel has been staying with us for a couple of days and he says to oil the fan or something, but I have a feeling it won't really do the job. Soooo we change it I guess? Also, we don't have a router thingabob yet, so we're taking turns with I have to beg Anders to borrow the cable for short amounts of time. I am writing this in notepad cuz I can't log on to Semagic without online access :P

In other news, my former land lady is a total cunt. She called me and demanded 300 kr (like 40 bucks) cuz I "didn't clean out the oven good enough". I don't want to pay her at all, but the argument phonecall was starting to cost me as much anyway. Grrr @ her! I also managed to accidentally pay the january rent for my former appartment cuz I forgot to switch out the automatic payment thingy. The lady in charge of that is actually real nice, but it's been almost a week and I still haven't got my money back. Which means I don't have any! Grrr @ that too.

I still haven't started doing much social stuff. The only people I've been hanging out with are people contacting me and people hanging out with Anders. Things are chaotic enough as it is, and ya I don't even have a Swedish phone number yet. Turns out I need a Swedish personal number to get a subscription, and I'm still waiting for that. It should come any minute though. And when I get it I will be able to get a bank account (more money) and a tax permit thingy (so I can get a job). Swell!

Our apparment is also swell. It is a lot bigger than I thought it would be. And so is my room. It is actually teeny tiny, but it used to be a walk in wardrobe and the way Anders portrayed it I imagined it to be a lot smaller that it actually was. Fat ass kitchen! Yessss. Fat ass bathroom! Yesss. We have a big balcony that we can't really enjoy yet (january and all), but we're still excited about it. The livingroom is huge too. I'll get some real pictures for you once things don't look as messy around here.

The neighbourhood is real nice as well. It's like this big community they put in place in the late 80's or something. Brick buildings. But ya, it's nice. Several (cheap) pizza places and other restaurants. Library, subway station (bliss!) and basically everything I need. I can't wait for the winter to be over and enjoy being outdoors again :P

Things should still be a bit slow until we get something to split the broadband, but that should happen any day now :]

I really like that dog. In that second picture of him he looks all inquisitive. Makes me want a dog again.
