Göteborg & Ongoing Design Woes
Had dinner with my main office colleges today, for our ninth year straight. Restaurant Göteborg this time. Hammarby Sjöstad.
We've been shrinking the last few years. Not individually - I'm involuntarily still growing on, but as a group. For a while we were gaining numbers too. Then came the pandemic. Financially uncertain times.
Though our budget isn't at it's best the food was good this year.
Seared queen scallops, salsa on cucumber, trout roe, lemon. Fish & seafood casserole with mussels and shrimps, fennel, carrots & croutons. Dulce de Leche Fondant with coconut ice cream, roasted peanuts, caramel flakes, chai tea and a carbonated lemon and ginger drink. Lime wedge and a blade of grass in it, and some homemade toffee and sweets by the exit.
535 SEK + drinks. Per person. That's like five meals in one if you go by my usual restaurant budget. Excluding drink.
It's nice to eat a quality meal occasionally. And to have a three course one where you can relax between the meals. Socialize too. Last year was a vegetarian buffet, and though also good it wasn't quite like this. Not as refreshing. Too satiating. I feel content now. Relaxed. Almost rested, somehow... even though I slept badly last night.
I'd planned to make more progress with the site I'm working with my nephew on, but didn't. I took a shower and went to bed instead. Tried to wind down. Hoped I'd have more energy to spare today. Instead I tossed and turned, went down and got a glass of water some time after 1 AM, probably did get some sleep after that... I don't know how much. I don't feel like I did.
Today's been good, though I fear for tonight. Night's an angst amplifier - or maybe it's just the lack of momentum that is - at whatever time you slow down and have to rest, so you can start anew the next day, and we need to make some conclusive progress soon.
Hope to make a bit more visible design advancements before I go to sleep tonight...
But Gothenburg was greeaaat. Wish I didn't have to lose that sensation and semblance of relaxation.
Rockstar Trailer 1!
Looks like Vice City more than San Andreas huh? I'm ready for it! :D
Second best game in the series.
Glad they're thinking over their character selection a bit with this one too. Three in one was a bit much.

Got this vague preview in the mail today...
Potential GTA sequel in the works? Potentially a GTA SA remake one?! I can hope - favorite GTA game so far that one was...
Maybe news of this is out already elsewhere. I'm not up-to-date at all. But hyped.
Good promo Rockstar.
Just Stopping By, South Of The East Strait...
There's way more, of course. I finally ported most of it to the site. Have yet to go through it all. I didn't draw at all this year. No time. But I did manage the music! And rhyme. Still in! My prime.
Posted some more duplicate movie reviews earlier. Though I'm considering changing this system. Think I've written about that before... I'm going for individual posts on individual reviews after all. Even if they're duplicates.
That way you have a better overview of individual post dates, and views, and the total review count, and it may be better SEO too...
Went bowling this last week, went floating, got educated on the immune system - shout-out Pharmanord and the grand locales of the Radisson Blu Royal Viking, spent time with buddy Bear before he headed off to the Philippines for the rest of the year, and I'm off to Östersund tomorrow again! With another free rental... will be at my recently renewed and rented office space there for the next two and a half weeks or so.
Shall be back in time for 'Little Christmas', and possibly a quick visit at the yearly Skansen Christmas Fair. If all things go as they should go here.
Time's a flying but it's kinda nice not violent.
Remind me to speak of pumpkin stew next time I post here - I learned how to make some of that too.
I went bowling recently! Got some of these:
and a few of these!
Also some of these odd ones,
and unfortunately also these.
It was at this place:
12 games. 3132 points. 133 average. 177 tops. Some were a close call but I won a good dose y'all. :) Two thirds. Good ball.
Been a while since the last session we had! And the first one with a 2 1/2 hour game. Started getting a bit faint towards the end of it... should've brought more water.
But it worked out! Good work-out.
