military man - gary moore

They have trained your boy to kill
And kill someday he will
They have trained your boy to die
And ask no questions why

This morning, around 04:00 GMT+1, Saddam Hussein was executed. One of the goals that the United States of America had when entering the war is now dealt with. They entered the war on false arguments, that from the beginning to the end were denied by Hans Blix, the Weapons Inspector of the United Nations, and caught Saddam after a while, in a hole somewhere out in the desert. They imprisoned him and held a trial that sometimes felt like a parody, it was like something directed by Al Yankovich from beginning to end. End in this, Saddam was sentenced to death, for one of his many crimes. As earlier mentioned they executed him this morning, the New Iraq started with an execution of a man that didn't have to face all the things he was accused of, and major parts of the world are cheering.

In between of the start of the war and the ending of Saddam's life, many people have died. Iraqi civilians, UN-personnel, American and coalition soldiers. By now, the death toll of American soldiers in Iraq has passed the number of dead people in the attack against World Trade Center at the 11 of September 2001, thereby starting the crusade against terrorism. Iraq is at the brink of war, a civil war devastating for the Iraqi people, the state of Iraq and the whole situation in the Middle East and that might start anytime. Major parts of the Western World have now changed their opinions against the United States, to the negative. It ain't no good PR for a country to invade far-away countries on false basis and with severe casualties.

Papa take a look at your boy
He's a military man
Mama take a look at your boy
He's dying
Mama take a look at your boy
He's fighting
Mama take a look at your boy
He's frightened

I can allow the world to celebrate. That's their choice. But I myself light a candle, look upon a star and wonders what's becoming of this beautiful world of ours.


down in the river to pray - alison krauss

O brothers let's go down,
Let's go down, come on down,
Come on brothers let's go down,
Down in the river to pray

Yes, I've returned from the woods. But that's not all! Behold,'cause I'm writing from me own computer again! Yes, it's finally working, after executing the old hard drive out in the woods with a very fin gun, a .308 with a Swarovski scope. It felt goood bringing me old nemesis down. If only old Odysseus had that weapon when fighting his Trojans!

Well, I'm home anyhow, and the Christian world is now in the state between the two big finishing events of the year, Christmas and New Years Eve. A nice state of mind, I have to say. Although I'll get so depressed in January... what is the matter with that month and being pointless? Not close to any nice event, and the weather does everything to smight down every least tendency of good mood. Gosh, I should move to the Caribbean...

I feel for writing something long ang deep here, but I'm tired as hell and only have one thing left to do before I get meself some well-earned sleep. And that ain't blogging, but finding a nice girl for a wallpaper on my newly restored computer.


fairytale of new york - the pogues

It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

They've got cars big as bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It's no place for the old
When you first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging,
All the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last!

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

I could have been someone
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

On this day of honour, the finest time of the year and the day of happiness and generousity, I give you my favourite Christmas carol. If you don't have it already, download it or have someone download it for you. If you're one rich bastard, buy it!

I've had a truly nice day and I hope that you all, readers and non-readers, have had the same. Tomorrow I'll travel for Markaryd to meet the relatives, and then I'll stay in the woods for a few days. I'll be home by the 29th, and then probably by a working computer!

So, for now:
Merry Christmas!

Snugglie would also once more like to add that he miss his friends. Deeply.


moondance - van morrison

Well it's a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies

New favourite song on the way? Might be, might be, very likely yes, indeed. Good song, I heard it Thursday on the little ceremony in the assembly hall, where there were a number of musical performances. One of Koc' friends sang that song, and he did it really good too.

Well, we got out of school Thursday, as the smarter of you might've figured out. We only had one lesson, History, and Stefan let us cancel it to go shopping or something instead. Thereby I, Arthur, Koc, Alex, David, Ems, Emma, Mengxian and Vix walked in a few shops and also spent a whole lot of time at Café Lundagård. I love that place.

Well, we had a nice time anyhow. And 13:15 we went to the assembly hall for this nice little showing of some musical talent. The principal (or whoatevarr ((I'm not allowed to say "whatever in usual accent for Ems, so I say it in Scottish instead)) his title is) also handed out prices to the winners in Lund Word Championship. The winners were two guys at NV, and not less than three persons from PDP! David, Alex and Dardan in top 3, in that order. Impressive, indeed.

The prices were books.
Alex: David got a book about a drunk and mine is about a girl that doesn't fit in anywhere. We're thinking about taking it personally.
PDP power!

Well, after then going to a classroom where our mentors Stefan and Katarina wished us merry Christmas, and after that a goodbye session down in the basement by the lockers, me and the other Tentacles (Ems, Emma, Alex, David, Vix, Mengxian) went t'wards the station to get transport to glorious Södra Sandby, and Ems' place to celebrate an early Christmas. So we were in Sandby quite early, and spent the time with playing some weird game, looking at pictures, talking the usual sort of nonsense and also some eating.

Doesn't that sound wonderful? Well, if it doesn't, I might clarify that it is.

Food was, pretty much as usual, pizza. The pizzas in Södra Sandby are quite good I've noticed. at least 7.5/10 in grade, Capri here in Ystad still holds the high-score.

After eating, it was Christmas gift-time. We had a thing called Secret Santa this year, it works as following: everyone wrote their names on a note each a few weeks ago, and then it was like, lottery. Everyone got a person that they were going to buy a present for, and that person of course wasn't supposed to know.
So, as following:
I bought for David
David bought for Mengxian
Mengxian bought for Ems
Ems bought for Vix
Vix bought for Emma
Emma bought for Alex
Alex bought for me

Among the present were two squids, half a kilo of truffels and a flying cucumber. Pics can as usually be seen for the evening at, Alex' picture journal. Thw whole thing was very funny, with a whole lot of laughter all the time. I.e. as usual!

No meeting with friends is complete without a film though, so we watched one, this time Starsky & Hutch with Owen WIlson and Ben Stiller. Well, I liked it because of the environment... and the reference to Easy Rider. Thank you, whoever directed it and chose to have that!

When the movie was finished we returned to Ems'r oom and had the usual "Truth/dare". That ain't tradition, it's just an eternal factor when we meet. And ultimately it was time for good-bye, sadly.

Vix and Emma left first with a taxi, and then me, David and Mengxian went to Lund by getting a ride with Alex and her dad. The goodbye was quite sad in one way, I mean now we won't meet until New Years Eve, and that feels awfully far away for the moment. And I won't meet Vix until January.

So guess what?

I miss you guys, a whole friggin' lot! So let's take a chat on the phone tomorrow, ey? Always nice to talk to one another on Christmas Eve!

Well, the past two days have been quite empty. I was to the theatre yesterday for the Christmas show of Sommarteatern (Ha-ha, paradoxal...) and have done Christmas candy and stuff today, but apart from that? Cleaning, reading Michael Moore and watching the Da Vinci-Code with horribly translated subtitles (even though they were in English). Example:
The Holy Grail = the holy grill
Leigh Teabing= Li Tea Bing
Mary Magdalene=Marie Manode

HORRIBLE! But well, 8:- in Shanghai, what can you expect?

Tomorrow it's Christmas Eve. It doesn't look like Christmas outside, but well, no snow south of Luleå from what I've heard. Huzzah. Bing Crosby is probably rotating in his grave.

Cheers, and until next time,
Merry Christmas! And I still miss you guys.

hound dog - elvis presley

Nothin' but a hound dog,
crying all the time

I know I updated it minutes ago, I just had a thing that I so much need to publish...

Alex säger:
what are you doing?
Snuggles. Ska du schemalägga hela livet eller ha din rastlösa frihet kvar? säger:
Looking at photos of pretty girls ^^ In lack of better doings.
Snuggles. Ska du schemalägga hela livet eller ha din rastlösa frihet kvar? säger:
And you?
Alex säger:
hahaha, "photos of pretty girls", hmm, WHAT pretty girls Snugglie?
Snuggles. Ska du schemalägga hela livet eller ha din rastlösa frihet kvar? säger:
Haha, you want names or what?
Alex säger:
hahahahaha, no, it just sounded wrong
Snuggles. Ska du schemalägga hela livet eller ha din rastlösa frihet kvar? säger:
It always does when mentioning internet-[insert adjective] girls-pics in the same context ^^
Alex säger:

Alex säger:
Snuggles. Ska du schemalägga hela livet eller ha din rastlösa frihet kvar? säger:
Using internet-[insert adjective] girls-pics in the same context and add cucumber sounds indeed wrong.

I'm tired, and I guess she's also that.


nemo - nightwish

This is me for forever
One of the lost ones
The one without a name
Without an honest heart as compass

We ended early today. Quite damned early, around 12. As most of you probably figure, that ain't too bad.

So today I've thereby had English, Maths and Spanish. Two of these lessons contained Christmas carols in foreign language, two of them had cookies in some form, and one involved a longer internal discussion within the Drama group.

And since we ended this damned early (equalling damned good!) we had a whole lot of empty time. Thereby, me, David, Ems, Emma, Arthur and Alex went to Espresso House for fika. Well there we met Alex' sister, since she and Alex were going Christmas shopping later. So she joined us, and we sat down in the corner of the basement. We usually end up in the corners.

What followed was two hours of loads of talking. The subjects counted, among other things, togas, Ystad, England, the issue if it's called football or soccer, football teams, text messages on the mobile phone, sexual associations, Arthur's plans to host an orgy in the City Hall...

Yes, a whole lot as you can see.

Tomorrow we end school for this semester. Can't believe I've been here for two months already... It feels like such a long time. Anyhow, tomorrow we, the tentacles, will celebrate an early Christmas at Ems' place. THAT'll be totally awesome.

After that I won't see'em until New Years Eve though. That blows.

The stars were on the sky when I went to my bus today. That is beautiful as always.


i don't like mondays - bob geldof

Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down

Quite bad day, nearly lousy all through. Blesch.

The reason that I haven't blogged lately is that my computer has gotten invaded by the trojans and their damned horses. It only starts a neat blue screen saying "Windows har stängts ner för att skydda din dator" - which translates into "fuck off". After many tries to get it back to life, and also slight necromancy, me and me dad gave up and left it to push up the daisies under me desk.

Since last blog entry, I have among other things done the following:
  • Been to Alex' place for the first time
  • Gone ice-skating two times
  • Frozen averagely seven limbs off in the "winter" cold
  • Celebrated the start of Chanukkah
  • Played Kenickie
  • Played Elwood Blues
  • Played John Cleese in Monthy Python's "The dead parrot"
  • Consumed an unknown amount of julmust
  • Failed to do a graph on a calculator
  • Stated that a frozen mamooth is a better teacher than our Physics teacher
  • Used a whole day with writing a lab report in biology
  • Uncountable fikas
  • Watched 1 hour and 4 minutes of Notting Hill
  • A bunch of other stuff.

Get the point? I've also been busy.

And soon it is Christmas, that is a slight sense of panic. Christmas gifts... bah, I need time.

On Thursdays we'll celebrate an early Christmas at Ems' place in Södra Sandby. Since me buses are fubar I will take the train. So Thursday night I'm going to Malmö! Yay! Blast...

All for today, got things to a'do now.


no surrender - bruce springsteen

'Cause we made a promise,
we swore we'd always remember
No retreat baby,
No surrender

D-day! Studying! Snuggles Café! Restoring the Byzantine Empire!

That concludes my day I guess. Not much real doings. I've got a friggin' biology test to study for, that is tomorrow, although I just... can't. There's like some barrier inside of me that says "Ssrew this, I'm going home" as soon as I open the book.

So what do you do then?

You start playing Europa Universalis and try to create an Empire, of course. Did fairly well, much better than my tries to invade France... a campaign that nearly everyone I know now has heard about quite a few times. A chaotic event that ended up with me being reduced to the English heartland, Ireland being Portuguese, and the French south coast being controlled by Denmark.

Yesterday my group didn't have any Physics, so me and Koc went out on an expedition t'wards Spyken. Hilarious, we stood there laughing at the place for a while, and then explored the neighbourhood. We first found a place called Spyken Frisör (laughter) and after that a Polish delicatess store, in which Koc stood talking to the owner in Polish while I was looking for something to drink.

After walking past a masquerade store (more laughter) we found a basement full of old records and CD:s. I've got a new favourite store in Lund now...

After school I went with Ems, Emma, David and Alex to Lundagård Café, my favourite place. Koc and Araneya walked with us for a while, but they didn't come to the café though.

No real new from the café. Same awfully nice shite, one could say. We discussed quite a few things, I stated that our Physics teacher is a bitch and that Hagar is crazy, very much laugther happened and at least two things that happened there are to be counted as "truly friggin' weird" on the classical "How weird was that?"-scale. In other words, everything was esactly as usual.

In the evening Alex' theatre group was going to have an improvisation evening, so after getting some food we went there. So with Alex on the scene and we others watching, we spent one and a half hour in the wonderful world/word of drama.

After this we went t'wards the station and I returned home to my hole on the South Coast again. When I left with the bus me friends gave me a very interesting goodbye-dance.

And the summary of this day is presented on the top. Over and out, radio silence, whatever. Now I'm going to eat, study (yeah...) and conquer Macedonia (Yeah!).


cover me - bruce springsteen

The whole world's out there
just, tryin' to score,
I, I've seen enough
I don't want to see it anymore
Cover me

This day is spent without going to neither school nor Lund. Alas, no I'm not sick and I haven't dropped out either, but today we've had a meeting with the Youth Council and me being there was quitenecessary since I am the chairman.

Well, I feel a little slow today. Very slow actually. I'll spend the afternoon with ice-cream, TV, vacuum-cleaning and having an interview over the telephone with Allehandan.

Movie night at Alex' this friday. Won-di-ful!


down under - men at work

I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover

Ever had that experience of all of a sudden finding an old favourite song of yours that you'd almost forgotten about? It happened me the other day when I all of a sudden found this old thing on my mp3. So I sat the whole morning on the bus, listening to it over and over, trying to remember a time long ago when there were no clouds to be seen.

Well, as all of you people with the capability of reading have noticed, I haven't blogged the last few days. And why? Well, because I've been dog tired almost every day after school/busride-of-Satan, and at the same time my computer's been rather rude against me. I'll hang the twat soon, no problems.

Well, school's going on the same way as before. It's quite nice that I nowadays actually enjoy going to school, I feel happy when I get there and see familiar faces. That's a feeling I can't remember that I've ever had before, so well... Nearly all problems seems to have been solved by now, and that's comforting indeed.

Anyhow, since there ain't very many news from school from the last days, I only have one thing to mention: Me, Maria, Koc and Emma J went to see the freemasoner the other day. That was... interesting.

Yesterday I had royal company here in this glorious hole, i.e. Ems, Emma, Alex, David, Mengan and Vix. The reason for this company was labeled as movie night/sleepover (for everyone except for Vix). First thing for the day was to feed my guests, they had to be satisfied with pan pizza for lunch but didn't seem to mind all too much. After that we went to ICA to get soda and crisps and stuff for the night.

When we got home we figured that it was time to watch the first movie. Now a problem appeared: We had no idea what movie we were going to watch. This led to the happening that Snugglie brought every movie in the house worth seeing, and then make eager recommendations for the best ones. It didn't really matter for me though, I'd seen all shite already. Anyhow, we chose The Butterfly Effect with Ashton Kutcher. Yes I know, Kutcher's probably one of the least serious-looking persons in Hollywood, but that doesn't matter really.

Talking about serious. That movie is quite serious and well, I guess it was quite a change from all the comedies we've watched before. It's a pretty good movie though, and after watching it we went down to get dinner: tacos!

And now it was time for me to be kitchen dictator, I tried to do as much as I could by myself. It's actually quite funny being in the kitchen, even though I'm not that good at it. But I managed to fix tacos, and command my guests to not do all too much since I after all was the host. So we had a really nice dinner, sat down eating and talking for a quite long time.

After food it was time for me, the host as you remember, to fix the dishes and stuff. And immediately after that we went up to the TV again, this time in the company of truffles and crisps. We had truffles for a whole friggin' platoon, I tell you. Anyhow, the next movie (after some truth/dare) was The Shawshank Redemption, which I can honestly say is one of the best movies I've ever seen. I believe that the others thought it was quite good too. Even though Ems and Vix got veeery hyperisch during the last 15 minutes of it... Wiie!

Soon after that movie, a time period that also involved some truth or dare, Vix went home. It really sucked that she couldn't stay over the night, but well... ain't much we could do about that. Anyhow, after playing some truth or truth (that is when most people have gone too lazy for dares) we started the third movie: Grease! Which of course meant a whole lot sing-a-long...

After watching that one, eating more truffles and getting a little tired, we moved into my room instead. Four people squished into my bed, two on a madrass on the floor, and then it changed during the night. I think the final configuration was Emma, David and Alex in my bed, Ems and Mengan on a madrass each and me in a chair. I got the worst place, I can tell you.

We spent a few hours just talking and well... tickling. And I'm not entirely sure what was going on in my bed, but I have changed the sheets just for sure. Well, we had quite some truth or truth too, but at one time you're always out of questions, and ultimately we fell asleep.

I can tell all you blog readers out there, here's a good advice: Do not try to sleep in chairs. It's not comfortable at all, I have a terrible pain in my neck and spine, and well. It wasn't good at all.

I woke up at 07:35 and went up. Combed myself, shaved, started cleaning, ate a nice peaceful breakfast... and then I had breakfast on the table for the others when they got up from bed around ten o'clock. Ems went with the 11:30 bus to Lund, so I followed here there, and the time that me and my remaining guests had was spent with billiards and fikaing on gingerbreads.

It's a little funny you know. I feel like one person when having people from Lund and stuff around. And then when I see them leave with the bus some switch's turned off inside my head and the countdown is starting 'til the time I'll see them again.

I had a really nice weekend guys, hope you enjoyed it here too.
