Early birthday celebration

My birthday is still a week away, but Markus’ parents came to visit and celebrate me a little early.
They stayed for 3 days and we had a really nice time. Zaphod was very pleased to see his favourite food dispensers grandparents again ;)
For Christmas I got this U.F.O. ceiliing lamp, and now I got two matching window lamps to go with it.
Or as Markus put it: “We got Death Star! We got Death Star!XD

From Markus’ sister I got a candle, a beautiful glass bowl (100% recycled glass) and a potted plant. The plant is a Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, or Snake Plant. I tend to kill everything green around me, but I’ve heard these are hardy so maybe I’ll manage to keep this one alive :P

I also got a book about tarot from Markus’ mother. That sort of things really interest me so I started reading it straight away. The fact that the illustrations are made by Hans Arnold, one of my favourite Swedish illustrators, makes it even better :love: (Google him, he was a brilliant artist)
I’ve never had the opportunity to have a tarot reading before but now I’m a little tempted to get a deck of my own and try it out. It sounds pretty fascinating. Have you guys had any experience with tarot?

So lucky

Mother Earth seem to be really going after Japan right now. I thought Haiti and Christchurch were enough, and then this happens. Massive earthquake –> huge tsunami –> failing nuclear plants –> waking volcano. Every time I turn on the TV or go online it seem to be getting worse :(

Things like these really remind me of how fortunate I am. People here bitch and complain about the Swedish climate a lot. About the long winters, the short summers, the cold, the darkness, the snow… But the truth is we’re so fucking lucky it’s embarrassing!
I live in a part of the world where natural “disasters” are limited to a week or two of extreme cold and maybe a huge blizzard – and even then it’s extremely rare that people actually die. There might be material damages and some economic downfalls, but people getting killed due to the weather happens just about never. The next person who walks in complaining about the snow will get yelled at. For real.

Now I’m gonna go take my dog for a walk. And enjoy the fact that the ground I walk on doesn’t shake.

Dotty smiley set

Over the past months I’ve received some nice compliments regarding the smiles I use on this site. Since people seem to like them I figured I might as well offer them for public use :) It would be fun to know if anyone use them, so don’t hesitate to drop me a line if you do!
Also, I’ve never offered a zip-file for download before – let me know if there’s a problem with it. :P

The set contains 28 different expressions, 10 are animated.
All fully transparent, but since the outline is medium grey they probably look best on medium or light coloured backgrounds.

Download ZIP

You can do whatever you want with them – just remember to link back to Rockwitch.net if you use them on some website. And don’t redistribute them (offer them for download on some other site)… Ok? Please and thank you <3

Where are my mittens?

I’ve been shopping. One awesome pair of new boots (whoo!) and two pairs of mittens. The mittens especially were much needed.

When I’m about to leave for work in the morning I can never find any mittens or gloves because someone *eyes boyfriend :glare: * keep stealing them. He takes one pair, wears them, puts them in his pockets or in his bag and forget about them. Then he comes home and grab another pair, wear them, put them too in his pockets/bag and forget about them. Or, which happens just as often, he leave them somewhere. And forget about them. A cycle he repeats every day.

As a result, there are never and gloves or mittens left for me and if I get my hands on a pair I can never leave them unguarded or they too will mysteriously disappear… The fact that my pairs are really to small for him doesn’t bother him, most mittens are stretchy so he squeeze into them anyway.
I thought buying some ultra-girly ones would scare him off, but that didn’t work. Imagine a 23 year old guy walking to work in army boots, torn jeans, leather jacket and… fluffy purple mittens. Yeah, that’s my boyfriend :P

Lucky for him I can’t really get mad at him. My purple mittens actually are much cuter on him ;)
So I’ve given up. I let him wear them and stretch them and leave them wherever he wants to and I just buy more when we’re out. Have the serenity to accept the things I can’t change and all that, haha :P
