So long

In about 1½ hours we will start driving towards Croatia. Rest of family is sleeping now, but I didn't really feel like sleeping just some two hours, so I'm staying awake untill we drive, and then I can sleep some in the car.

I've made hdd recorder record Portugal - Holland, France - Spain in round of 16 and all quater and semi finals. We will be home for bronze match and final.

My dad got this adapter for laptop so I can use it in the car. So I've copied some movies over and I also have some dvds with movies and things on I'll bring, so we have something to do in the car and such. This also means that I can do some blogging meanwhile (offline ofcourse). Otherwise I'm pretty sure I would never get it done.

Bags are in the car and I've gotten mp3 player and other shit ready for the drive. So only thing left now is waiting I think.

So long, and thanks for all the fish..

Plans for the Summer

I had my last exam this year yesterday, didn't went as well as I would have hoped and I got a 7.

So now it's holiday untill sometime in August, and here is what my plans are so far.

Football World Cup 2006 Haven't watched much football last few years, I think I might already have watched more the last two weeks than I have the last two years. Been watching a lot already and plan to watch a lot more too. Too bad the ending is same time as the next thing, but there are TV in our house so we can watch it anyway. My favourite teams are Ivory Coast and Germany. Ivory Coast lost two first matches and are already out, eventhough they have played some nice football. However I am absolutely sure Germany will go very far this year again.

Croatia Vacation Together with my parents, sister, brother, uncle, aunt, two cousins and four more family friends I'm going to Croatia for some 10 days plus the drive, two days each way. Looking forward to this, as last vacations with these same people rates as some of the best I've been on. It might be a little too hot there for my liking though. However the worst thing being missing two weeks of #ranks'ing. :I I'm afraid Jeppe might catch me, and I was just getting close to top 20. But I will just have to catch up on the lost points in the time to follow.

Tour De France 2006 This will start before we get home from Croatia but it will just be some of the more boring flat stages I will miss. I'm glad to finally be home at the time of the mountain stages. Armstrong is now gone, hence it will be very exciting to see who can win. I'm hoping for Mancebo to go all the way this year.

FVANG LAN Me, Zerox, eppeJ, enil and hopefully also Napol will join at enil's place in week 30 for some serious #ranks'ing, drinking, grilling, hoyling and so on. FVANG team on #ranks have recently made it to the spot as the second best team, moving quite much faster that HOLJA (no. 1) at the moment. If we don't take them before, I'm positive we will here :)

Movies I plan to be watching the following movie series during the summer: Star Wars, Lord Of The Rings, Jurassic Park, Charlies Angels, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen DVD box and American Pie. Beside some other single movies ofcourse.

The Notebook

Almost a week ago I saw The Notebook. A movie that really touched me. I think it was watching the main charactors as old also, that did it. Watching it I just couldn't hold my tears, can't remember last time I ever cried like that. I think I will never forget that feeling this movie gave me.

ESC 2006

Had expected Denmark to do quite much better this year than they did. We were auto qualified to the final after the 10th place last year, with a song that in my opinion sucked. But appearently "Twist of Love" didn't stand out enough. I thing that I believe to be very important in this competion. I mean, song can be ranked second or third in someone's opinion, but they only give one vote, so eventhough some song is belived to be second, third, fourth ect. best it won't get any votes. I also believe this to be the reason that the four big countries (Germany, England, Spain, France is it?) rarely do that well. They make quality songs, but just not the best.

However one song did stand out this year so to speak. I saw the music video on youtube a single time before the semi final. Didn't realized then how good it was. But immediately after watching it at the semi final I got a nice feeling about it. I choose to gamble a little money on them, 6.66€ on Finland as winners and 4€ on Ukraine in top3. When Finland won it gave me about 85€. Quite a nice amount of money. :p~ Have gambled once before on the ESC, in 2001 on Sweden. They became fifth.

Beside Hard Rock Hallelujah there were some other very nice songs this year. Ukraine's 'Show me Your Love', Greece's 'Everything', Germany's 'No No Never', England's 'Teenage Life', Denmark's 'Twist of Love' and Iceland's 'Congratiolations' which unfortunately didn't go the the final. They have been a big part of the daily playlist since. As you also can see from my profile.

I've really wanted to use for a long time, but haven't been able to becuase they can't make a plugin for musicmatch jukebox :(. However after all FVANG guys registered there I decided to try foobar 2000 to be able to use

So I installed it and got started on Seems like an ok player but a little simple. Not sure if I can live without my beloved musicmatch. But we'll see. I added a top artists of the week chart to the blog.
