A post in english:
I've been tagged by Mats Helander, and apparently this means I have to write five things that people probably didn't know about me and then tag five more people. I've never been much for chain letters and such, but I will give this a try and hopefully don't upset the tagged ones to much.
- I'm a decent guitar player
In my early years I tried to make sort of a living by playing guitar and singing in restaurants and pubs, I even tried to write some own material but it all got way too emotional, decent melodies but lyrics about broken hearts, and there's enough of those songs already.
- I'm too social
Well, at least according to my wife, and this is because everywhere I go I tend to meet someone I know or at least used to know, and each and every time I like to catch up on lost memories. This also gives me headaches each and every time I go shopping at the mall or stroll around in the city, since I have too look everyone in the face, I could miss someone I know, and we wouldn't want that, would we?
- I love movies, but not scary ones
I can handle scary movies as well, if I've already seen them once and know when everything bad is happening. I purchase a couple of DVD's each months and not just "good" ones, usually I don't spend much time on academy award winning movies like "My Africa", instead I like my movies to give me a couple of minutes of not thinking of anything else, like "Long Kiss Goodnight", "Matrix" or simply "Monsters Inc".
- I'm struggling with my weight
Well I don't think that I'm the only one according to all magazines and news around this time of year, but I've actually weighed a bit above 100 kilograms a couple of years ago and are now closing in on 85 instead. A good breakfast, some exercise and a will to say 'no' seems to be enough to get in shape.
- "Trolltyg i tomteskogen"
When I was a child I had the opportunity to dub the cartoon movie "Trolltyg i tomteskogen" (don't know the english title). I played the character of the Tim who had turned 35 and just stopped using dipers. I was so into the character during the recording that they couldn't make me laugh, even though they tickled me. Instead my friend had to giggle in place. Also I though that I was going to get filthy rich, but ended up earning 100 SEK (around $15), a bit disappointed I recall!
