Stag party

Been a while since I last wrote a post at this hour; actually quite a while since I last was awake at all at this hour. Today was my sisters boyfriends stag party. It was actually a full day of events including paint ball and some place with different challenges. However, due to my recent illness which I’m still suffering a bit from I decided not to participate during the day but instead join them in the evening when they got back. I went there a bit early to help my sister to set it up. This was the first stag party I have attended and perhaps the last. My middle sisters boyfriend doesn’t seem like the type that would appreciate a stag party and I doubt my oldest sister will remarry. I don’t really have any close male friends either and I of course have no brothers.

They got back around 17:30. Apparently they had put a hood on Ingemar, who’s the man to be wed, during the ride back in the bus so he wouldn’t know where he was going. He hadn’t been very fooled though and at least ~10km before their destination he knew where they were. As they were certain he would recognize the path leading up to his door they decided to carry him. They carried him inside, removed his shoes and then threw him in the indoor pool.

The rest of the evening consisted of bathing, eating, drinking and talking. I skipped the bathing part as did some other people. I didn’t like it much in the beginning when a lot of people was together as everyone talked way too loud and I already had a headache. I also didn’t like some of the people very much as they were a bit vulgar and brute for my taste. But it got better as the evening went on and some people left. Around 23 or so we were only 4 people left until 1:45 or something when my father joined. He was on his way home from some friends in the village and the path goes by the house. For some reason unknown the front door stood wide open when he passed by so he went in.

At 2:30 I drove the remaining to visitors home, something I think they, and especially Ingemar was great full for. At home, which I arrived to at 3:15, I found Annie sleep in the bedroom with the night stand lamp lit. For some reason I find her with the light on when I’m out late. I think her ambition is to be awake when I get home but she seldom succeed in that plan. Over all I had a quite decent evening/night. Now it’s time to brush my teeth and head for bed. It’s way past my bedtime!

Sensational Dissertation and J2ME

First update batch, this one will be about Sensation and how school turned out.

Sensation 2009 I went alone to Amsterdam. As the years before I only stayed one night. Before going to sensation I had a burger with Steven and two of his friends at some place I don’t remember the name of. Two quite nice girls but haven’t met them since so haven’t really got much to tell about them. At sensation Annie was not with me as we didn’t become a couple until May. By then all Sensation tickets was sold out. At Sensation I met two local girls and a few guys from Argentina. The girls had purchased a Hello Kitty balloon before going to Sensation and had it with them inside, so they were dead easy to find. I don’t quite remember what drug it was that made them feel bad, but the GHB they got later saved the night at least. I personally stayed away from all drugs. Day after I had another burger with Steven, now at the restaurant which I had been two both the years before. They make a really nice cheeseburger. I headed home in some point in time, don’t really remember.

In the fall, last of October I think, it was time for Sensation again. This time in Copenhagen. This time it was me, Annie and grabs (friend in Malmö). Two of grabs friends were also going to join us at Sensation. Sensation itself was so, so. It’s never as good in Copenhagen as the Parken is quite a lot smaller than the Amsterdam Arena. It’s of course the same theme, wicked wonderland this year, all over the world each year, so I had already seen it once in Amsterdam. Unfortunately we never found grabs friends so we spent the evening as one couple and one friend, which is not the optimal mix of people when being at a party. At least if the friend is not looking for something to become a couple with.

This year I and Annie went down to Amsterdam and stayed for five nights. Went to the last Sensation for me as I really think they are loosing the Sensation feeling. It have become to much a matter of money and no longer a matter of spirit. We had a very nice stay in Amsterdam though with terrific weather. Visited the national museum, Van Gogh museum, diamond museum, took Annie to the purses and handbags museum (low ration males). We also went to Madame Tussauds and to the Amsterdam Botanical garden. Of all the places I liked the Botanical garden the best, especially their very nice redwood tree. I’ll write a longer post about this when I’m back home in Sweden and can attach some pictures that Annie took.

So over to school then. My dissertation went fine, got a C on it if I recall correctly, which I am totally satisfied with. I have now gotten my degree and I have only spoken with the partner once since we finished writing it, happened to run into her at the bus station. I have started to get over that part though and have mailed her a few times when she wanted to get in contact to get my as a reference for her job application as we wrote the dissertation together. But overall I’m happy to be done with that part of my life.

I got in on the Java for mobile devices course that was last summer. I attended class a grand total of two times. The first time was when we were to show the professor our project that we had made during the summer. I hadn’t put very much effort into this project and got a D, which I’m so very fine with. The second time I attended was for the exam, which I nailed with an all correct. So summer working with something and having a course about it at the same time is winning combination. Out of  the 200 study hours the course was, I might have spent around 40 on it.
