A really depressing Midsummer

I've just lived through my second Midsummer and this year was a big disappointment. The main reason was that I came down with a cold in the end of the week and have thus spent the 5 days in my apartment doing absolutely nothing. I'm so completely sick of the walls in the apartment that I can't wait to get out of here.

I've also done some more work on the restaurant guide I mentioned in the earlier posting. First of all I've hooked it up to Google Ads so I will hopefully at least make the hosting cost back. It's $40 a year, I've made $2 already so it shouldn't be a problem (But don't forget to click on the ads if you check it out). Another thing is I have hooked it up to a really cool Google Maps hack so check out the Interactive Map part of the sight which I at least thing is really cool. It works best in Firefox browsers, but is at least functional in Internet explorer even though there are some formatting that looks a little bit weird.

Finally I am as I am writing this enjoying my first Oboj like beverage since I moved here. It's ok, even though it's a little bit too sweet so I think that is something that will need to be imported (Or is it exported) here from Sweden next time I go and visit.

Experienced my first earthquake

I have now experienced my first earthquake here in California. Also earlier in the week there was a Tsunami warning. Things are moving and shaking here in a way I am not entirely comfortable with.

On another note I have started a new website at It's basically a site where I will put up reviews of all the restaurants that I go to down here. Hopefully someone will find it usefull and I had fun doing it. Last time I was trying something even remotely like this was when I started the SJ anti fan club (Which I have now discontinued because I really cant be hasled about it anymore from the fanatic pro and con people that kept contacting me about it and just generally taking it way to serious).

Finally been down to San Diego for the weekend

I've finally taken the time to go down and party in San Diego (I've been there before, but only for football and never to actually check the place out). Actually I was in Solana Beach. Really fun place to party in. According to John this is the place where all the mobsters on the east coast move to retire, although I don't know how true that could be because the people down there didn't seem to know anything about it.

On another note my personal email is currently not working (I'm sure they will get it working soon). I feel so alone and isolated. I'm planning on moving to somewhere where I know the people who work there (Now that all my peeps have quit from Bahnhof), so much easier fixing problems when you have a phone number to call where you dont have to spend 30 minutes in a phone queue.

It's official. I live in vacation paradise

For those of you who have still not visited me I have some more indications that I am really living in vacation paradise as Laguna Beach has been voted Best Beach Town 2005 by Discovery's Travel Channel.

I guess this happened before the news during the last days was being dominated by the big landslide that happened. You can see collections for "Laguna Relief" everywhere. I have a little bit of problem to feel too sad about people who owned houses that at least before the landslides were worth around 2 million dollars and upwards. I'm not saying I don't feel sympathy for the people who were affected but in comparison to a lot of other stuff going on around the world I'm pretty sure these people will land on their feet.

Also I know that my place is standing on solid rock and not mud which was the case where the landslide happened, so I'm not that worried that the same fate will happen to me (Knock on wood).

Still here

If anyone is reading the news that there have been a pretty big landslide here in Laguna Beach I just want to let people know that it wasn't my place and I'm still here.
