20/8 – First day of school

Monday and the first day of school. It was good to meet all my good friends and my classmates again. Looks like they all had i great summer. I know i did. I didn’t do much. Only a week trip with our boat. For the rest i have just studied for the drivers test and i have something called “Særemne” nest year. Basically it means i have to read 3 boks of the same author. I finished about 2 of Jo Nesbø’s books, Marekorset and Sorgenfri. The last one was ingenious i though. We didn’t spend a lot time on the first day of school. I barely had time to great them all. When i took the buss home i traveled with an old friend. We haven’t talked in so long so it was very nice to talk again. When i got home i installed uTorrent WebUi . In my opinion uTorrent is one of the best clients, so if you have it would recommend the WebUi. Even though it’s only in beta testing it works very well. Basically you can access your client from anywhere in the world and you can interact with it. You also make your own password. The off to work. This time from 17 until 22. Just a normal day. Nothing special happened. Except i got a phone call from Cathrine. She invited me over to her. She is a good friend that just moved into my neighborhood. We tried to build some drawers from Ikea. The first one worked very well. No problems, we were almost a dream team:P But unfortunately the second one we messed up. We thought it was Ikea’s fault. But after we got her dad to come help us he solved the problem. Very embarrassing. Now I’m going to sleep. It’s almost 1 am. G’Night!



19/8 – Cleaning my room

Today the main goal was to prepare for tomorrows big day. First day of school. And by that i mean cleaning my room from head to toe:P For breakfast i had some ham and chees toast. Then Jørgen, my brother, suggested we watched a movie. “Disturbia” was it’s name. The movie was just plain and simple, a pretty okay movie. It got a little freakish at the end. So i had to start cleaning my room. I started with all the stacks of papier that had piled up during the last months. Basically that was it to cleaning my room. I finished off with TMNT: Teenage mutant ninja turtles. I really thought the movie would be IRL (In real life), but it was animated. I wasn’t disappointed. The quality was extreme. They did a good job to be honest. That was about it for the entire day.


17/8 – Job

I was suppose to wakeup at ten. I guess that didn’t happen. I wasn’t out of my bed before twelve. One of the reasons is that i have to prepare for school. Waking up earlier and earlier each day. The other was that i was going to help Bergersen with his/our web page. I talked with him, explaining that i overslept. We arranged a meeting at Shell, a gas station 200 m from my house.  I just had to take a shower first. We ordered an account for the web page. Someday I’m getting my own server, but not yet. Then we just talked waiting for a response from them. He was going to the movies with his girlfriend today, and I had to work. At ten to five my dad drove me to Varingskollen. We were there precisely at ten. It’s another gas station.  I helped to people today with road directions. Me actually, I am really bad in geography. Hopefully it helped. I caught a ride with my boss home. I met my parents in the driveway. They had been to a movie. The new one called “Knocked up”. It is about a 40 year old virgin getting someone knocked up. I’d like to see it, but i haven’t got the time. The whole family watched a episode together their on the second one and I’m on the fifth. Hopefully they can catch up with me. I won’t watch before they do, even though i cant wait. So long…


16/8 – Getting a Haircut

Today my mom was taking my brothers and I to get our hair cut. You know i have to look good for the first day of school. She was home from work about three thirty. At the hairdresser there was a big que for the drop-in and we just had to sit and wait. My mom and dad vent to Cafe TID meanwhile. One of my brothers didn’t like the idea of cutting his hair, so he arranged a deal with my dad. About an hour and a half kilo hair later we went to get some school utensils. Then my mom invited us all to peppes, its a local pizza hut. Later that day, when we were home my brother wanted to watch a movie. We decided on Transformers. It was a good movie. Its funny how they can use computer animations to make the “cars” come alive. The story was thrilling and exiting and it left us with a hint that there will be a sequel. That was it for today…


15/8 – Track & Field

My old track and field coach asked me if I could represent the local team in a competition in Kristiansand in some weeks. It’s me and 3 others that are running 1000 m. It’s split up in 100, 200, 300 and 400 m. My job is to run 100 m. (^^, ) I accepted so today was my first practice. Unfortunately only the daughter of the coach and I showed up. The others were probably scared of the weather. There had been a lot of dark clouds in the sky this morning. We practice outside too. I started with some warm-ups by running around and then some stretching. Then i needed to refresh my memory of how to start. We started with learning how to set it up. When I am going to compete i have to do this all by my self. After that i got some pointers on my starting positions. You know when he says: “Ready” “Set” “Go”. He said i did pretty well for it being so long ago since i did this. Then we just practiced running a couple of times. That was it for the day and we finished with stretching. Luckily i caught a ride with the coach home.
When i got home, i had to struggle with the newsletter for Cafe TID. I have designed the newsletter in HTML and Outlook won’t accept it. I guess it’s for security reasons. So i downloaded a Shareware where i could manipulate the source code. It worked very well for the first newsletter but it wouldn’t work for this one now. It might be because you have to pay after you send 3 mails or something, and i used them all on testing the first one. Around eleven i got a “light bulb” idea. I only needed the HTML code for the design, and that i already have from the first one. So i replaced the text and it worked. Finally it was sent and i could stop worrying about it. Then it was time for one more thrilling episode of Heroes!

14/8 – Driving Teacher

After a quick breakfast i had to take the buss at 14:38 to Lillestrøm. I was going to meet Arvid, my driving instructor. I was really exited to se how he was like and how it would be. I have onlypractis driven with my mom and my dad until now. I had a session at 15:15 odd time, but i got there on time. My first impression of him was really good. A driving teacher with some experience. He told me he had been i driving instructor since 1972 (35 years). He was very calm and we went to his car. It was a Volvo, a very new one. He told me how we were going to do this. He had planed a route that he takes all his students on. The route has lots of different situations. He told me to pretend i was driving with my dad/mom and just listen to his instructions. We drove for about an hour. It was a very varied route with very many situations but i made it through. When I finished we had a chat. He told me i did very well. It was very likely that i would get my license on my birthday. Its not a must, but it’s a goal to get it by then. He told me that there were only two things i had to practice on for the next lesson. It was roundabouts and some special type of interceptions. My next lesson would be when i got my school schedule so i know when i have time.
Later this day it was poker time with my best friend Joe and his cousin. Not for money this time, just for fun. I finished in second after his cousin, Bergersen. I helped him fix his broadband for his laptop. He has bought a wireless connection threw a mobile phone SIM card. Telenor has about 300 hotshots around Norway. A good idea. That’s it for now.

12/8 – Grand Prix in Oslo

Today my dad had planed a day at sea. We were going to watch the Grand Prix in Oslo. For those of you that don’t know what this is, this is racing at the highest level at sea. It’s a race with pilots and throttlemen locked into air force looking security capsules in 42 foot boats with a weight of 5 TONS! (Metric) The boats are equipped with 2 x 900 horsepower racing engines that produce speeds over 250 km/t (135 knot). During the race they average a speed of 200 km/t! These machines eat 120 liters of Avgas (This is a High-octane fuel used for aircrafts). Spirit of Norway

We were there an hour before the race. Just enough time for me to find a pace to buy some food at Aker Brygge, but unfortunately the whole peer was reserved for ticket holders only! So much for having a big mac at MacD. I found a Thai Club sandwich house and bought some. When i got back to the boat the race was ready to begin. I shot a small video sequence from the start of the race. If you set your speakers on full you might get a feeling of how it was like being there! It was totally AMAZING! Didn’t make it any better that Norway’s best racer won, Bjørn Rune Gjelsten, with the boat Spirit of Norway(See picture, click to see full size). They have been supreme the whole week and was in the lead for the entire race. In 2006, Gjelsten (throttleman) and Steve Curtis (pilot), took all four world titles (World Championship, Pole Position Championship, Middle East and European titles). To win the World Championship this year they need to win 3 out of the 5 next races! A great day! After the race witch lasted about an hour i had to rush to get to work. We had one and a half hour and had no problem reaching it at 5 pm. I worked with Vegard today. It was fun! Time goes much faster when you work with someone, compared with working alone! Unfortunately we had some problems with turning on the alarm. It went of 3 time 😛 We finally got it and i was home at about 11 pm.

10/8 – Poker night at Robin’s

I got an sms from my friend Robin saying he was inviting friends over for a poker night on the 10. My dad drow me over to his house at about eight.
When i arrived Robin was watching the end of “Saw” A god movie. I think the concept behind the Saw movies are ingenious, anyway. Didn’t take long before the rest arrived. We started with 100 kr from each. You also had an opportunity to buy-in at a 100 kr, even though nobody did this. We were 7 in total. That meant 525 for the winner, and you guessed it, 175 for 2nd place. We played for almost 2 hours. When i had an Ace and a 10 and “the flop” cam with a 5, 6 and a 10 i had to go all-in. Mostly because i had bad time. I needed to catch the buss. Then Adrian calls me. He was sitting there with a 5 and an 8. The turn comes. Its a queen, than god for me. The wait for the river was intense. If any other card than a 5 or an 8 comes i win. Quess what card comes. A 5. Just my luck! When i went to check what buss to take i realized the last buss lest at about 23.14. But then i wouldn’t be home before 1.00 AM. Tragic considering the drive is only 10-15 minutes. But i had luck, i called my dad and he said he could pick me up. That was great. A good day. Next time they said Ivar would host it.
