Time running out

• March 19, 2003 • Comments (0)

I don’t know if I should write that I’ve enjoyed working today. It feels like you shouldn’t feel good when the reason that you’re busy is that there’s a war coming. But it does make the work more interesting. More meaningful. More exciting. It’s the news pulse. And I’d be a bad news editor if […]

Words of war

• March 17, 2003 • Comments (0)

The War will start any day now. Today US, UK and Spain declared â€?the time for diplomacy is overâ€? as they withdrew the new suggestion for a UN resolution. The three countries â€?reserve their rights to take their own steps to secure the disarmament of Iraqâ€?. All UN staff has been called back from Iraq […]

Eurovision Short Skirt Competition

• March 15, 2003 • Comments (0)

Since I’m still ill I’ve spent the evening watching the Swedish finals for the Eurovision Song Contest. 10 songs and artists had been picked in local contests, and now they were to perform once more in Stockholm Globe Arena to see who’d become Sweden’s representative in the European finals in Riga. It seemed that the […]

A happy failure

• March 15, 2003 • Comments (1)

Finally I can be ill. I’ve been figting a cold with American cold & flu medicine the past few days, going to work though my head has felt as if it was full of cotton, my throat aching etc. All because of the finals in Rinkeby poetry slam last night. I felt as if the […]

Morning pages

• March 12, 2003 • Comments (0)

I’m supposed to write “morning pages” for my creative writing class. My pages are whiter in the morning, and more intimidating. Clean sheets. No impressions yet to guide me. Almost bias free. Apart from the dreams, of course – and this is the scary part, since I hardly ever remember my dreams, they could influence […]

Crony meeting and Rappaport evening

• March 4, 2003 • Comments (0)

Four from the Stockholm bunch met for a short crony meeting at Mosebacke tonight. Gitta joined in for the first time. We did a couple of quick workshops, which was good. I felt I got some flow back. The food was excellent, which was great, too. Then just Helena and I stayed for the performance. […]

One unhappy cat

One unhappy cat

Minor‘s stitches were removed today. The vet said things looked good. But now the poor thing needs to wear her plastic collar again. She looks miserable. I worry a bit about her fur. She seems to have lost weight over the past couple of months, and her fur is not as thick as before. At […]

KGB, Storvik and stuff

What started out as a nice girls night out with just me, Marina, Gitta and Annica at KGB turned in to an even nicer evening with quite a bunch of people from Trafik. And Jenny was there with her old colleagues from Torget. I stayed later than I had planned, but somehow managed to get […]

Improvising

• February 10, 2003 • Comments (0)

I have been on a weekend course in improvisational theatre. It was great fun. A lot of play and games, and a bunch of exercises where you got into the flow of mindstorming words, ideas etc. The group was great. All accepting, warm people who made it easy for you. No need to be scared […]

My head!

• February 6, 2003 • Comments (0)

I’m filling in for Frida, working the night shift, and I have the worst headache. The kind when you can’t even think without it hurting. At work, as usual, a thousand sounds are coming from tvs, radios, colleagues… I’m happy there’s just three editors working this late. I don’t know if I’ve had a headache […]

Conference and pool games

• January 31, 2003 • Comments (0)

The conference was great. We were at a place called Johannesbergs slott (Johannesberg’s castle) in Gottröra just past Arlanda airport. After a terrible morning, me being tired and hungover, we reached the castle at 9.30. Before lunch we got the usual briefings about the economic situation, developments in the number of visitors to the site […]

Flash work

• January 28, 2003 • Comments (0)

This week will be extra short since I’m off on a conference with my office on Thursday-Friday. Hence there’s a lot of work to be done before we go. Today I’ve been working on a flash project for the Sport section of the site. It’s interesting work, flash, since I still know little enough to […]
