I write short journal entries about everything and nothing, unedited and raw. They're collected here.

The apartment was turning into a sauna due to not being able to open the windows because of the cats, so they’ve gone home again. On the one hand, it’s nice to get some sleep without being interrupted for cuddles every other hour, but on the other, no cuddles…

It’s hot again today, I’m staying hydrated with water and Huel. At least for now, there might be beers on the horizon, we’ll see.

It’s the National Day of Sweden, happy birthday to my homeland. You’ve been in better shape, but on the other hand, it could be a lot worse too. It’s a scorcher of a day, so wear sunscreen, fellow Swedes out celebrating.

Saw the fifth and final episode of critically acclaimed HBO miniseries Chernobyl at the former nuclear reactor at KTH last night. That was an experience, thanks Helena.

It’s a Bob Dylan kind of morning

Tomorrow’s the National Day of Sweden, which is a day off for most people. Spring is littered with these days, with every other workweek split in two, squeeze days galore. While it’s annoying if you actually want to get some work done, and get the answers you need from clients, it’s also something of a blessing when you’re trying to catch up. So that’s what I’m looking forward to doing tomorrow.

Another busy day today. This week’s shaping up to be a fast-paced one. I did take the time to meet up with Malin and Paazu, and the two shibas – Chihiro and Nagini – she’s babysitting. Yes, that was something of a cuteness overload.

I managed to get a lot of things done yesterday, which was nice because today’s work will be done this evening. Got some Conan.com stuff to sort out, including newsletter planning, and a ton of other things I’ve pushed until after said site finally launched. I cracked a story yesterday too, so I’m looking forward to wrap that one up and send to my editor.

Enjoy your Monday. Mine is spent taking it easy this morning, before getting to work proper.

A new month means admin work, which is what I’m doing today. Not exactly what I had in mind, but that’s what happened. It’s pretty nice to be all alone in the studio, listening to Rolling Stones, and sometimes gazing longingly out the window at all the people enjoying the Sunday sunshine. Wait, am I enjoying this or not? I’m confused.

I feel bad for Ladytron, the sound on last night’s concert was horrible. As in, we left early, it was that bad. They’re closing that particular venue, and it might be just as well, because the space sure didn’t help. A shame. At least the band looked cool.

Cat sitting, so at least I have company while catching up on lost working hours.

Doris thinks she’s a record…

Wrapping this week with an utterly horrible night’s sleep, or rather lack thereof, and a Ladytron concert with Helena. I’m going to try and recharge this weekend, it’s been a bit much recently.

We launched Conan.com yesterday. Yes, that is the official website for Conan the frickin’ Barbarian, and everything else Robert E. Howard. I’m very happy about this. The Conan brand is owned by Cabinet Entertainment, who also got a website from us a while back. There’s more – so much more! – in store for these things, I can’t wait to tell you.

But yeah, for an old fantasy nerd like yours truly, who grew up with the Conan stories and the Marvel comics, this is huge. And yet, just the tip of the iceberg, as they say. Sign up for the newsletter on Conan.com, there are plenty of treats coming soon, but I’m extra psyched about a certain one…

Today is launch day for a project we’ve been working with for quite some time. It’s the first step of many, with lots of plans. I’ll tweet the link when it’s live.
