Summer flood

Mon Jul 28, 2014, 5:20 AM


Hi there dear followers!

I hope you all having an amazing summertime! And not like I'm experiencing. Its to darn warm!! yes I complain over the sun and the heat. I live in Sweden, in Scandinavia. One of the countries placed far up next to the north pole. And it's not OK when it getting over 35 degrees here! If I wanted to melt down I would have moved south. But no, I like the cold, I don't do heat well at all so please global warming get the fuck away from me!! And the your heat with you! >.<

And while we are at the subject of global warming. The village where I live got flooded yesterday.  And we had a huge hail storm. While 35 degrees hot. That is the first in the last... 60 years. It was mental. I have never experienced anything like it.  And I had not planned to spend my Sunday mopping and drying an apartment.  I was at a friend when it all happened, so I helped him save his apartment, since it got flooded. Water was coming in from the front door and from the patio door in the kitchen.  It was 15 cm of water outside the building and the buildings entry was flooded. And the street outside? A sea. All pictures are taken outside my friends place. And a heavily trafficked road pass outside. What is wrong with people? We saw so many that just continued to drive, that just HAD to get going. And the result? Several cars that broke down after getting water in the engine. They had to be towed away.  And all be course people couldn't just stop and wait it out? the storm was over in an hour and in two all the water had dispersal in the street as well.  Firetrucks come from villages near by since ours was so busy. A lot of basement were completely flooded. I stayed at my friend for about 4 hours and helped him dry his apartment really good. Then I went home. Thankfully our basement was not flooded! But our patio roof... It had over 100 holes in it.  From marble sized hail. We have had hail make holes in our plastic roof before. One hole maybe. Not over 100. So we have to get a new roof.  When I got home, I got some food and then I sat down in my room. And some later my cat emerged from under my sofa. The poor thing had hid under there for the entire storm and afterward. I hugged her and cuddled her so hard later in the evening.

The weather today? Clear blue sky without a cloud in sight! I hate it. I don't like summer. Be gone!!

And the LARP have taken place. It's done this summer. I'm completely dead. Not from the actual being in character and playing stuffs, but from all the anxiety, the stress and do all the other things that needed to be done. Running between people and solve issues, making props as people needed them. Keeping the over all plan intact. I only had two panic attacks, and three big cry attacks.  Thankfully, I was looked after by some really nice people. The inn took care of me, giving me food and tasty treats when ever I sat down, and my co-organizer told me to take time off afterward. Witch I haven't. This years was a huge success with close to 200 people. Last year there were 100. We doubled the attendants and worked a lot on the intrigues, making a lot of stuff for all kind of people.  And many that was thinking of quitting the campaign was now looking forward to next year. So we have to start working for next year now. It's really really fun that it was such hit, but at the same time so much work and energy that it corrupt and destroy. But hey, my slave character that I have played for 4 years was set free, and become lover to one of the village guards and she will be staying in the village over the year. That is huge exiting for me :D

And last, I have updated my profile with some pretty colorful background! :love:
I hope you will like it as much as I do :D


Due to the growing amount of people that never have made/ eaten a home cooked meal: Can you cook your own food? (not micro wave ready food, but making it the stove, preparing and cooking it for real) 

80%
36 deviants said Yes of course I can!
16%
7 deviants said I can, but I don't.
4%
2 deviants said No I live on take away food and micro wave food.
