There is no such thing as bad weather

Startnr

...only crappy clothes. Did Lillehammer - Oslo yesterday, also know as Lille Styrkeprøven http://www.styrkeproven.no. Started with Sportsklubben Rye and had no problem to hang in there all the way to Minnesund. Then I really had to take a piss, so I was not able to catch them up, but that did not matter because then I had to really struggle to keep the pace. Up until then it was not hard, just wet - wet - wet, but from Minnesund I felt the hla http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_leukocyte_antigen flooding in my legs. I passed the finishing line at the time of 5.25 - quite happy with that one. There results are available here http://results.ultimate.dk/live/front/index.php?e=422&t=www&l=no

And my car passed 60.000 kilometers yesterday when Elin was on sightseeing at Hedmark, Hurdal and Jessheim :-)

I've had it!!!!

June 20th, 2007

I totally hate Oslo Sporveier. I came back from Leikanger today, took the train to Oslo S and arrived at Jernbanetorget subway station at 19.41, just one minute before the subway was supposed to head for Ellingsrudåsen, line 2. But - no, they have now started with the summer schedule, so from 19.00 the subway is only passing by every half hour. BASTARDS!!!!

Where can I sign up on a "I hate summer schedules"?? I got no seat because there where no free seats, in the evening, how stupid are the people managing Oslo Sporveier. Holiday schedules, now??? In July ok, but now, f#¤# them!!

Others are frustrated as well http://skriblerier.net/blogg/399/

Could it be better in the future? www.dagsavisen.no/innenriks

Without shaving foam and shampo

June 19th, 2007

At Leikanger http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leikanger today, got here with Widerøe from Gardermoen to Sogndal. While passing the security check at Gardermoen the nazi security guards took away my shampoo and shaving foam...so I wonder how I will look and smell when back home tomorrow!!! Bastards! All thanks to freaking security paranoia...

Å lese Lolita i Teheran - Azar Nafisi

June 17th, 2007

My latest book "Å lese Lolita i Teheran" by Azar Nafisi, a good follow up to my previous book which also was written by a female from Iran. I would recommend this one as well, as it gave me a valuable view into the daily life of Iran, how the government influences it, and how the citizens tries to cope with the moral police and such. At first I found the book a bit boring, due to all the talk about literature, but I soon realized that it was an important part of the book - the red line.

Lolita

And "Iran våkner" and this book has been a refreshing opposite viewpoint of Islam compared to "Why I'm not a muslim" ibn_warraq_why_am_i_not_a_muslim

Imodium Comp

June 17th, 2007

Have you seen the tv ad for Imodium Comp? It is a medicament stopping diarrhea, and the commercial goes like this: A woman walking out of her home, then when down the stairs you see two of her and hear a voice saying "have you had these days when accute diarrhea have stopped you from doing what you want? Eat Imodium Comp and be able to cure your diarrhea". Then you see the woman going to the movies with a friend of her. I found the description on the Apotek 1 web page, it is said to cure

Stoppende ved akutt diaré og reduksjon av luftsmerterStoppende ved akutt diaré og reduksjon av luftsmerter

Like anyone would take a pill and head straight off to the cinema after having just had diarrhea.

And if you have problems the straight opposite, another tv add showing "Ingunn, not in four days", you can try Dulcolax.

Hurdalsjøen Rundt

June 17th, 2007

I have been participating in "Hurdalsjøen Rundt" today, a 65km (70 according to my computer) race around Hurdalsjøen. I was very happy when crossing the finishing line, I made it in less than 2 hours and with an average speed of 35 km/h. That includes 5 kilometers of steep up hill in the mid of the race.

The results are here ...ResultaterHurdalsjoenRundt2007.txt
(Some did the short run - 50 km/h, some did the long run)

A very good tool

Pearl Jam - Live in Tokyo, March 3, 2003 (2 cd)

June 13th, 2007

From Platekompaniet, says it all

Recorded live at the Budokan, Toyko, Japan, on March 3rd, 2003. A decade down the road, when most of the original Seattle grunge bands had fallen prey to either mortality, acrimony, or changing public tastes, Pearl Jam still stood tall above the well-settled, flannel-flecked dust. At the dawn of the 21st century, presumably in an effort to beat the bootleggers, the band starting releasing dozens of live albums. The best of these, like this 2003 disc, demonstrate the group's continuing vitality. From early grunge-era anthems such as "Evenflow" and the survivors' anthem "Alive" to the death-rock cover "Last Kiss" and the melodic, contemplative "Betterman," the full breadth of the band's vision is shown. As befits a band that Neil Young once used as a backing outfit, they know how to jam without veering into self-indulgence--a good thing, considering how many concert recordings were already floating around by the time of this double-disc release.

Bought it because of the song Yellow Ledbetter http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow_Ledbetter Pearl Jam, one of the best!
