It’s wednesday and it’s late, past midnight. But today it doesn’t care, because I got tomorrow of. It’s a holiday. Not sure of the name in english and I’m too lazy too look it up, but it’s the day when Jesus took a ride to heaven. Some skills that Jesus had, ay? ;)
I’ve just finished two games of rummy with Cisca. It was fun! We won one game each. Fair and square.
Springsteen is playing in the background. Somehow I got a kick out of Bruce today. I saw some Springsteen-thing on facebook, that lead to me go on youtube to listen to a song, that led to a Bruce-website, which led to me relising I need a sign / banner with a song-request for the concert and that led me into the livingroom to look at some cd’s. There I found ‘the ties that bind’ and i didn’t remember how it went (!!!) So I had to open iTunes and find that song. And since then I’ve been listening to Bruce!
The song-request is real tricky! I have two choises:
- to pick the song I want to hear the most, but I doubt he will pick and play because he really never plays it. That is ‘Thougher Than the Test’.
- to pick a song that is more likely to be picked. That could be ‘Downbound Train’.
I went thru the setlists for the concerts he’s held in May and neither ‘Thougher Than the Rest’ or Downbound Train is played. I think I’ll land on Downbound Train.
I don’t really think it matters which song I choose actually, because what’s the chance he’s gonna pick MY sign? Will I even be in the front row? Or the second? or the third? I hope so, but I don’t have high hopes.
Anyway, Im gonna make a cool sign worth looking at. Something special.
I just ordered tickets to see a movie tomorrow; Corlaline and the secret door. It’s the 3D version. Didn’t think I would have to pay more for it since it’s 3D, but oh boy I did. One ticket is 120 nok! It’s like 90 nok for a regular ticket. Oh well… it will be supercool to watch it in 3D!
The movie starts at 15.30. I’ll meet Ellen at 14.45. After the movie we’ll go eating at Burger King.
Hopefully I’ll be able to do some usefull stuff before the movie. I had a plan to wash some windows… blargh. It’s superboring and I’m so not good at it. But it should be done. I never really do it, so it’s about time! Another thing that I should do is to ship some stuff down in the basement.
You know, here the other day went through all my old vhs-tapes. Since I don’t have a VCR anymore and I doubt I’ll get one actually, I can get rid of them. I’m not tossing them away, not yet. First they’ll go down in the basement for some time and if I haven’t found myself a VCR in a year or so, I guess I can toss them. Where the hell do you get a VCR nowadays?
I have a lot of videos! I guess there is about 70 in total. There is a lot of goodies in those piles, like: Man On the Moon, Pulp Fiction, Mifunes Last Song, Philladelphia and the Green Mile. The video I will miss the most is Waterdance. Great movie with Eric Stoltz, Helen Hunt, Wesley Snipes and William Forsyth. Seen it at least ten times, maybe even more. I’ve lost count!
I’ve tried to find this movie as a DVD, but it’s impossible to find. And if I find it, it’s with a region my dvd-player can’t handle. Sigh, sigh and more sigh!
What else am I going to do tomorrow? Hmmm… Not sure. I better not write down a too big to-do-list, because then I’ll just be disappointed when I go to bed and find out didn’t do half of what was on the list. But I can’t write down nothing either, because then I’ll be disappointed too. Oh… whatever!
Talking about lists. I’ve made a list of new music I want. It’s not short!
- Green Day – 21st Century Breakdown
- Eminem – Relapse
- Moneybrother – Real Control
- Depeche Mode – Sounds of the Universe (Deluxe Box Set Edition 3CD+DVD)
- Melody Club – Goodbuy To Romance
- Lily Allen – It’s Not Me, It’s You
- Leonard Cohen – Live In London (CD + DVD)
- Manic Street Pretchers – Journal For Plague Lovers
- Lisa Ekdahl – Give Me That Slow Knowing Smile
That sure is a lot of music! And I’m not sure I’ve covered it all. This is what i can think of at least.
Writing this list I found a great gift for mum. I think I’m gonna buy her the DVD with Leonard Cohen in London. That will be a great gift. I remember we went to see him when he played in Oslo last year. We had a great evening and Cohen was super. I’ll add that to the biscuts I’m making, the cantucini’s. So, I need to buy that dvd and buy a box/jar I have put the cantucini’s in. There is about 3 weeks until her birthday, so I don’t have a rush. Oh and I have make a card for her, must not forget that.
I’m eyeing the watch in the corner of this screen. It says 01:42. I know I’m not going to work tomorrow, but still…. I don’t have to go crazy with the bedtime. I think it’s time to end now and get my sorry ass into bed.
Bah. I wish I had the stereo in my bedroom. Then I could’ve fallen alseep to Bruce and some Tunnel of Love songs (put it on a timer). Well, I’m pretty much dead, so I think I actually will fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. No need for music then!
