The Bull run

October 22nd, 2005

Today i ran my first cross country running race. It didn’t last for so long, though. After just half of the course my knee started troubleing me and just a short while after I could hardly run and had to stop. I think the problem with my knee was that my muscles couldn’t handle the pressure and told me to stop. I mean I’ve been cycling a lot so I am in pretty good condition but since I haven’t been running much, the muscles used for running wasn’t really prepared for it.

The race was cool because it wasn’t on track or even paths, sometimes you were just running in the middle of the forest which was awesome and was also the parts where i was faster than the others (just because of my background in orienteering).

Even though I had to stop it was great fun and makes me want to run more! Well, if my knee gets better… right now I can hardly walk.

Herman Karlin

October 2nd, 2005

Last night my uncle Herman died. My uncle Herman died last night.

The first i was thinking about was all the internet related stuff:
Who’s going to check his email?
What happens to dead people’s emails?
Will anyone ever check it?
or will it just get filled up by spam until it gets full and then it dies too?

I also searched for his name on Google and yes he was there alright, his name different guestbooks all over the place. So weird. His comments are there but he’s not. On the internet you stay alive forever… eh.

Anyway, Herman was a very cool man, he was kind of the “black sheep” of my dads family. As a young man he took a job on a boat and traveled the seven seas and continued to do that for the rest of his life. I haven’t met him in a long while but we’ve had email contact for a few years….

Well, i’ve put a song online that suits good for the mood i am in right now. it’s the Essentials song Last Night produced by Davinche (who also produces Kano). Get it here.

embarrassing in food shopping

September 19th, 2005

sometimes when i go to a supermarket and buy only ingredients for one type of dish (ex sushi: seaweed, wasabi, etc) i get so embarrased! i always think that they think “look at that dude, he’s making the typical sushi kit, what a jerk”, so i always try to buy things that doesn’t combine into a certain meal. does anyone feel the same?
