Fucking SCREAMING children behind me. Fucking SCREAMING children in front me. Fucking SHRIEKING baby above me. Fucking MASSIVE headphones on my ears and tv ramped up to 9th I still can’t hear anything but FUCKING SCREAMING CHILDREN FOR FIVE STRAIGHT FUCKING HOURS :<



Next time I’m moving, if it’s an apartmen building/complex it’s one where lives only people over 50 because at least majority of them won’t have children under 12!

I haven’t slept well the past two nights – hardly at all. I still dream every night, and when I sleep badly, seems like I remember the dreams a lot better than when I sleep well :/ Feeling tired and unenergetic, want to go and try to sleep but I know I won’t be able to and that it’s best wait for the night. Which is bloody 9 hours away :/

I’m trying to read Liza Marklund’s latest I got from the library, Panttivanki (Du gamla, du fria). I’ve liked all the other books by Marklund I’ve read, but I’m having a lot of problems with this one – I’ve been trying for at least three weeks, and I’m only at 81 pages 🙁 Normally, it’d take me maybe three or four days to read the entire damn book. A week at the most!

The main character is a Annika, an investigating journalist. She investigates and exposes human trafficing, corruption, crimes, abuse of power, injustice, evil, the truth, that sort of thing. She’s not a snob, interested in maintaining the correct image or putting out airs. She’s not political. Her husband, Thomas, is all of those, and more.

(The rest is behind the cut because of spoilers for Panttivanki (Du gamla, du fria)).

Hell has frozen over – the management of is actually alive! They have setup a blog and twitter and are actually answering and fixing some things users have reported broken!

It never occurred to me they’d ever do that! It’s been 10 years of silence. And no – I don’t count the notices on the front page which were always posted after something was broken and it had been fixed hours/days/weeks/months after the breakage. They never posted to say “yes, we know X is broken, we’re working on it” even if it took days or weeks to fix it 🙁 So I don’t (didn’t?) count the front page.

Although it remains to be seen whether they’ll really listen to their users and roll back changes we don’t like (like the new review box and ready-ticked-favorite-story-author-boxes) or add things we do want like bring back the MA-rating.

Oh, and I hope this new age of communication between and their users will be a lasting feature, not an anomaly that lasts for a month or two.

As you can see, I have changed the theme up here! The gorgeous layout is one of premade layouts offered at and which I coded into a WordPress theme for my own use because I really, really wanted to use it :)
