Hi... who's still here? Who would read me if I decided to start using this thing again? Who remembers me at all?
Dare I?


Ouch, my heart hurts. I really don't have the time for this, and yet, I'm enjoying every second of it. I love drama, I guess.

I got it I got it I got it I got it I got it I got it I got it I got it I got it I got it!!!!!!!!!


Oh my god.


Starlight Express was such an amazing show, even more so than I'd imagined. I'm so glad I went to see it - but what choice did I have, after ten years of loving it. The artists were wonderful, Rusty was the cutest thing alive, Electra was HAWT and Greaseball was just perfect. It's strange, I've always been an Electra!girl, but it was really Greaseball who stole my heart that night. That feeling, when he rolled out on the stage, singing Rolling stock, and I realised that he was actually there in real life, singing for me (ok, and the others...) that particular moment... just, wow. It was my first ALW musical, but NOT the last, that's for sure.
There were some songs that I didn't know, and some changes to the storyline that left me a bit "huh?" but altogether, I sat through it with a big, sobbing grin on my face. The cd I have is the OLC version from -84, and although I know it's changed through the years, to me it's still the "real" thing. I really missed the first version of Only he, which is the world's greatest love song ever. And I missed Belle, who I later learned was only in it for the first couple of years. Hrrm, what do you know...
But some of the changes were for the better! The Rockies ---> The Hip hoppers = Hell yeah! And I love the song Make up my heart.
But what's with C.B.? I mean, he was there, he had the same role and everything, but he didn't have a name anymore, he was just called the Red Caboose? Even though it didn't fit with the music. Straaange.
Anyway, definitely one of the best nights of my life so far. If I had a list of things to do before I die (which I totally should have) I could strike this one off now. Hee!

Some pictures, shamelessly stolen from the tour site. But I have the same pics in my souvenir programme, so I feel as though I have some rights to them as well. Or maybe I'm just trying to make myself feel better about stealing these. I'll shut up now.Collapse )

So, it's getting colder and darker every day. Winter is here, I guess. I find myself more drawn to the internet again (admittedly, mostly facebook) even though this year has been more of a paper journal year. I knew this would happen, though, I've learned from previous years. That's why I'm not doing the "sorry for not updating I promise I'll do better soon!" thing this time.

So, what else is new? My brother, who split up with his wife last christmas, is now getting back together with her. Good for them, I guess. I trust him to do what's best for him, but I have to admit I'm worried. He was so messed up last year, I'm not sure he could handle going through that again. So fingers crossed that this'll work, I guess.

And mum's been in a car accident. She's okay, which is a miracle considering what the car looked like. I don't want to think about what could have happened *shivers*

And, to complete the misery, I'm without a job after christmas. They have to do cutbacks, and first thing to go... the temps. I'm not sure I believe in it, because I've been working pretty much full-time for two years now, and they couldn't have gotten by without me. And I know at least two persons who are going into retirement this spring, so, they'll need even more staff. But, in a way I'm glad it happened before I got stuck in this place for the rest of my life. I need to try some new things before I settle down. Finding a new job will be hard, but not half as hard as it was back in Karlskrona.
I'm looking quite seriously into getting a job in Norway. If mum can take Leon for a while, I think I'll give it a try.

Hey you! Who, me? Yes, you! Race you!

Tonight I'm doing something I've wanted to do for ten years. It feels so unreal that the day has finally come, I'm almost nervous.


William Shakespeare

Presume not that I am the Maija I was.

It's so accurate it's silly.

Dutch curls in Malmö

*is in Malmö*
It's time for the annual meet-up with the Lotta-society. The book club for people who refuse to admit that they're adults now... or something :)
I don't really have anything to say, I'm only killing time before I'm supposed to meet up with the rest of the group, at 10.00. I got here at 6.20, and have been dozing on a bench for an hour or so. Haven't slept at all tonight (my bus left at three!) but strangely enough, I'm not tired. The excitement, I guess.
I just met this disgustingly cute guy. I was looking through my wallet for change, to see if I had 29 sek (3€) for 90 minutes of internet time, when I heard someone say "Yoo can ooze mine!" and pointed at this computer. He had paid for the whole 90 minutes, but had only been online for 14! How sweeeeet of him! And he had the prettiest, curly hair and was just so... yummy. Judging by the website addies he had been visiting, he was dutch.
Oh, and http://www.whitestripes.net
*sigh* But I'll never meet him again, cruel fate. There was no e-mail addy left in the log-in box at hotmail, or I could have looked him up at facebook. Hmm, facebook... I still have 47 minutes left of cutie-curls' internet time. I think I'll go play some pirate ;)

Stupid Anya with her stupid, tasty wine

Urgh, hangover.
Something's telling me there'll be a lot of sitting still today.
