I copy-paste far too much from this site, but hey...

When I think this is funny... it's probably past my bed time...

Can't take the pressure and it's starting to show

After a few days desperately trying to work on my exam paper about inequality, I look a lot more like this. I swear, there are children with ADHD who have longer attention spans than mine.
However, I should still, fingers crossed, be able to come up with better arguments than this guy. Just never stops being funny, that one.

Man U, Man U, you're all really dreadful and your girlfriends are unfulfilled and alienated

So, Arsenal won the FA Cup over Manchester United and good for them (Arsenal, that is).
However, that Arsenal mascot? This one?

Gunnersaurus? They haven't thought about that name very long, have they? Or tried to say it out loud before they decided? Because, come on, Gunnersaurus, that's not a football mascot, that's an STD;
"I've been meaning to call you, because... err... I just thought you should know that... erm... I went to the doctor's and she said that... well... I have Gunnersaurus..."
Itches like crazy!

Where are all the baby pigeons?

There are no pictures of me on this blog, something I am quite happy with. However, if I was someday, after becoming rich and famous, to be in South Park, I'd probably look something like this. The handbag isn't entirely my style and I think that my freckles are a bit less obvious, but still...
Go here to make your own.

I know that I just need you like I've never done before

After having asked pretty much everyone I know, who know anything about computers and after trying myself about a billion times, I give up! I need geek assistance! Please!
When my computer is on, a little yellow message pops up every once in a while (ie. about every five nanoseconds) like so:

If you are one of the few non-Danish speaking readers of this site, it says that one of the USB-devices plugged into my my computer is not functioning correctly and is not being recognised by Windows. That can happen, I guess, but the thing is that the message pops up whether or not I actually have anything remotely USB-related plugged in. I don't know what it's trying to tell me - is non-existance a malfunction in itself or what?
Anyway, when I press the yellow message, this comes up:

Bla-di-bla, 1 of the USB-thingies is free and one is an unknown device - again, there is nothing plugged in!
Now, I've tried the device manager, I've tried deleting everything seemingly USB-related there and then re-install it, I tried seeing if it had anything to do with my docking station, my printer, my USB-stick, my minidisc, a virus, everything - I can't think of anything more!
And you might think that I'm overreacting, but that little yellow fella, it has this "pop"-sound every time it opens and, like I said, it does so all the time and it's annoying! Really, really annoying! Annoying the same way world music is annoying, or the way your younger siblings are annoying when you're 15! I need help! Please!

Imagining what my body would sound like slamming against those rocks

Now, that Roskilde-program is looking better and better, isn't it? Yesterday, they added Håkan Hellström as well and I still haven't found a way to raise funds for a ticket. It's getting rather depressing, because you just know that if you don't go, it's going to be fantastic festival-weather (23 degrees, a couple of clouds, but not many and not big, and a light shower Friday 'round noon just to settle the dust) and there's going to be at least one of those concerts - one like Björk in 2003 (where I, for the first time since 1997, wasn't there) that people are still talking about years after; people cried, were touched by the Hand of God, the blind could see and yada-f***ing-yada! You, on the other hand, will be sitting in your flat (that probably needs cleaning), chewing off your own arm due to pure, unadulterated envy, whilst receiving texts from your "friends" going along the lines of: "We're having so much fun, the weather is excellent, it was the best show *ever* - you should be here, we all just shagged the guitarist from Bloc Party".
Sigh... I really need a ticket...

On a completely unrelated, but definitely more positive sidenote, TvDanmark has started showing new episodes of Gilmore Girls. In general, you have to love a show that has Belle & Sebastian, The Damned and The Smiths included on its soundtrack and one of the main characters gets Joe Strummer's leather jacket for her birthday, but right now Traci Lords is in the show as well (she sells furniture for Lorelai and Sookie's new inn) and that's always sort of funny. So make time for it or something.

Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance to the radio

If you want to see pictures from the very sweaty Kaiser Chiefs-concert, you can do so here and here.

I wanna marry van Persie

Again, it's been a while and I would like to say that it was because I've been busy with our sociology synopsis which is due on Wednesday, but I'd totally be lying, so...
Went to see Kaiser Chiefs at Loppen and even though I was a lot drunker than I should have been, broke the heel on my favourite pair of shoes, managed to scratch my best friend till she bled and even though you have to find it slightly disturbing to be at the same show as Sascha Dupont, I still had a pretty good time. Also, breaking my heel meant that I could go home, eat brownies and drink gin & tonics before hitting town again, which is never half-bad.
Next day, though, I was pretty hungover and because my mother and sister were visiting, we were going to the Zoo - and, on a public holiday, that's not the best place in the world to be with a hangover and a violent dislike towards (most) children. The highlight of the day was the penguins and when we were watching the goats and a little girl who kept shouting really loudly for her friend, got bitten by one (a goat, that is). Probably not my best side showing, but it was still pretty funny.
Oh well, sociology coming up, better go...
