I'm going under...

... The Rock!

Really epic moment of my life here in Gibraltar. Visiting the old tunnels from the second world war was really fantastic. Every road had its history, every room had its purpose. I really wonder how it would have been like to live there. I bet Håkan would have liked it, he was talking about cave girls from the first moment we arrived.

Jimmy Hoffa haunts the tunnels!

Apparently a lot of people died mining these tunnels, so naturally there are ghost stories. There's one ghost that pulls shirts and whispers stuff and another one that smokes cigarrs. May it be Jimmy Hoffa perhaps? Have we finally located where he has gone? Maybe he's like Håkan, into cave chicks or something. :P

What? THERZ MORZ?! Me likz!

Apparently, the long tour we took, barely covers half of the whole complex. There is lots more tunnels everywhere, but unfortunately we couldn't check them out. Maybe because of safety, or maybe because security. Some parts are still being used by military I've heard.

Also, there is a lot of natural caves in there. One natural lake inside plus a couple of cave complexes that I have no idea how big they are. They say there might be quite a lot still undiscovered caves in there, so deep that no one really any idea of where the bottom is.

Would be awesome to sometime see a map or a 3d model of the whole complex, to visualize what's really in there. It's almost like a small city in there. Makes me think of Moria... :P

Anyway, less talk, more pictures bitch!

First glimpse of the tunnel complex. Some parts were quite narrow, others more wide. Some had electricity, some not.

Big boys in here. Had an old bunker (with WINDOWS) inside. Also had an escape tunnel leading to the Rock Hotel.

Would you like a Filét Mignon, sir? Extra rust to that, sir?

Ventilation thingy. Good to have unless you like toxic fumes! :)

One of two still excisting power plant engines, driven by oil I think. Usually these are found on ships or something...

Want to have a shit? Be my guest! There's even old moulded toilet paper around!

I think this part went up to another complex, which I yet have to see...

I want a f*cking calzone, POR FAVOR!

After the tunnel trip, Håkan, Trine, Johan and I met up with Vlada and enjoyed some italian/spanish/gibraltarian pizza. :)

Actually, I can say now that I have found the best pizzeria of Gibraltar, honestly. I'm not saying it's as great as the pizzas in Sweden, but this one beats the rest of the places by far. Finally some proper _PIZZA_.

For gods sake, how hard can it be to make a proper Pizza? I mean, Pizza Express makes small, disguisting pizzas that cost double as much and tastes half as good as frozen pizzas you can buy at Morrisons. Mamma Mia on the other hand, made REAL pizzas. Thank you Daniella.

Tonight is the night...

I have been waiting for something like this since 2006. Last time we won one of the most even games in history. The time before that we turned around a game like never before. This time, we just have to wait and see.  I feel the adrenaline pumping already.

Yesterday my investment finally payed off!

Yesterday we went to the casino again - Pelle, Håkan and I. As usual we invest 10% in each other to reduce variance. Usually it doesn't really pay off since we are the masters of bubbling/being sucked out, but this time... this time it was time!

Håkan felt quite good about his result

I had the most card dry night ever, so for me the entertainment value was low (even though I made it to the Final Table this time). Pelle played a roller coaster game and bubbled again, but when we thought all hope was gone... HÅKAN wins the tournament  (well actually they made a deal HU, but that's okay).  First timer!  Congrats!

Sweden vs. Finland in Ice Hockey = ALWAYS EPIC!

Both Sweden and Finland has made it to the finals. This game will indeed be epic. After crushing them in the two latest finals we met, I am honestly afraid of this one. We are two even games, but this time I think Finland got a tiny bit stronger team. I mean, just look at what their young star Granlund did in their game that took them to the finals:

But then again...

Håkan for fuck sake, stop being a sissy!

I have been trying to convince Håkan and Pelle now to come and do some boxing at the gym in Atlantic Suites, but he says his ass hurts to much so he cant come... I MEAN COME ON! "My ass hurts!"?

Speaking of which, there is rumors that Håkan hade some fun with "Mr. Cocktus" this Friday, but he can't remember it. Although after this evening there is some strange pain is his "behind"... Is Håkan still avaailable?

Oh yes. Here is some pictures from the company party - a la Sven of course (always taking pictures in the sexiest way possible).

 Somehow I find the background quite amusing...

Okay, that's it! I've had enough!

I'm really pissed of at the moment. I mean, once it is okay. Twice I could understand, but when it happens time after time after time everywhere I go in this damn town, then I get quite angry. Especially when it is such a serious thing and could mean life or death when it really happens.

What am I talking about? Yes, the fire alarm...

I will die in my bed!

Since I now have NO respect for the fire alarm what so ever, I normally just close the door and falls back asleep whenever it happens during the night. Come on, going up in the middle of the night every week just because the fire alarm system isn't working? No way. If it sometimes happens for real, I will for sure die in my bed.

Important things should be flawless!

An important thing such as a fire alarm system, which could mean life or death, should not malfunction. EVER. If it gets turned on randomly, will it turn on when it really happens? If it does, will people take it seriously? Don't cry wolf someone once said.

When you design a system like this it has to be flawless. Is that so hard to understand? How stupid are you guys that work with these things? Come on, you are practically a potential cause of people dying, because they don't respect the fire alarm anymore! Sabotage! Murderers!

Some things gets me really angry. This is one of them.


Now to a little "treat" so to speak. On my behalf. Last Monday when I won money from my newly arrived boss Per "Illvillja" Wolf, I suddenly find myself being blinded by a Hello Kitty cake being squeezed into my face.

Apparently this little trick was planned for weeks by my fellow colleagues. Also, in addition to the cake, we were actually streaming with video live to our community. Public humiliation!

I'm already plotting my revenge...

Barcelona, mi amor...

That's right ladies and gentlemen, I raided Barcelona!

Gathered my troops, consisting of a Latvian brainmelter, a Danish crazy person, an English ninja and a Swedish mascot. Then it was time to jump into the battle wagon, Phils car, and go to Malaga airport.

Alright I can sit in the middle... wait a minute!

06:30 the trip took off, from Kings Warf. Johan took the front seat, and I of course didn't blink before I captured the middle seat (with one girl on each side... gigidy!). Problem was... I realized there was no belt. Well, heck. If I die I die... At least I will get 4000 virgins if I die...

Qixiang, wtf are you doing here?!

Finally at the airport, we ended up in a huge cue at the gate. Talking a bit about this and that, suddenly getting interrupted by a couple of famous faces! One of them was my flat mate Qixiang, whom where flying to Italy the same day. I had no idea he was flying from Malaga. I thought he was going to fly from Gibraltar, since he has this Chinese VISA problem.

Entering the plane, this fucking smell reminded me of how much I hate to fly. And yes, it is pretty much only because of this smell. Like kind of dry air or something. It fucks my head up. Then the seats are never really comfortable. GAH!

Arriving at Barcelona after just an hour or so, was really nice. We immediately realized what an awesome town this was, even if the weather wasn't optimal. Not long after we had sat down, drinking the most expensive sangria in my life, Nick finally shows up. HEY Mr. Fist! How you doin'?


After having some food and getting lost near the cathedral district, we finally get in touch with the people we are renting the apartment from and can get some assistance finding the damn place.

Shit, this place was awesome. Really small, but smart floor plan! Double bed + a bulk bed + A sofa for short people (yes, for Phil) and most important of all: A BEER MACHINE! Johan was more enthusiastic than me about this machine, but we all enjoyed it's juices flowing down our throats. It was almost like being in a really awesome porn movie. MOM AND DAD, PLEASE SKIP THIS PARAGRAPH IF YOU ARE READING!

After warming up at the apartment, the following happened:

(really dodgy, nick-looking, place)

Da Buzz, Da Cold, Da Fantastic!

The next day we ran down to this huge Cathedral to inspect how long the cue was + how much it cost. We did some measurements, bought a coupon thingy and then jumped onto the first tourist bus we could find.

Finding the Science Museum thingy, with a rain forest garden in it!

City hall (I think) motha fuckas!

We finished the day off with some more partying, in this goth club Nicky found. Pretty awesome. Some really strange things happened there and they were actually playing some Swedish emo goth music. Was surprised when I could understand the lyrics :D

The last day we went shopping like hell. I found lots of nice things and now feel quite like a snob or something, buying that expensive stuff. Never really invested that much into clothes before. Please don't ask how much I spent...

After, we went to this Asian wok place. Really nice food. Some of it I had been missing a lot, since I haven't been able to find anything of that quality near Gibraltar. If anyone knows a good place (I know the Wok already, but this place was way better imo).

Bloody fights, and I missed it!

When me and Vlada had gone home to rest, the rest of the guys went to a couple of dark and horny bars. Apparently there was a big fight there between a drug dealer and the bar owner. There was blood and stuff, and police came. Can't believe I missed it. At least I didn't miss the one in Gibraltar yesterday... At least now I know we got a Titan in our company ;)

Just a little note about Håkans house warming party: AWESOME! See pictures here!
