Here I am at Mosebacke just wishing the time could fly a little bit faster. Tomorrow Jeanette is coming and we're spending the night at Bern's Hotel before it's time for her to reveal her christmas present. I'm really curious what it is. We're going away for 48 hours. The only real clues I've got so far is that we'll not be in Stockholm and I need to bring warm clothes, bathing shorts, a camera, pen and paper, passport and guitarpicks. Hmmm... I wonder what it could be.

After last years success when I dressed up like Sponge Bob I felt a big pressure to make something good out of this year as well.

This is what he wrote in his blog on http://www.myspace.com/aceyslademusic
"Acey just received the remix of 'Reptile House' done by Skinny from Deathstars and is very excited for you all to hear it! 'Man, Skinny stepped up to the plate on this one! Last night I went over to Stakka's (Aceys producer) house to catch up a little. We have 2 songs to finish and then we are DONE with the album! Anyway, he just had a daughter so we put the process on hold for a couple of weeks. 2 Surprises awaited me at Stakkas. 1-His daughter did not recoil in the pure evil of my presence. 2-Skinny from Deathstars was sending his remix via IM. One of the surprises was fresh and beautiful. The other was dark and groovy. I'll leave it to you as to which was which.' This fall Acey will release an EP called, 'Sex, Murder, Art, Baby!'. The EP will have new songs, exclusive tracks and remixes by Skinny (Deathstars), Loopy (H.U.G.), Speedranch, and a special re-mix by Piggy D (Evacuation Plan and Rob Zombie) with some help from Aceys friends and fiends. Live shows and a full length album are in the future. Musically Acey describes it as 'Quasi Glam Ubber Dance Rock'."

We got up pretty early on Tuesday to pack our bags, get the last C-vitamines out of the sun and get the last B-vitamines out of the beer before it was time to head back to Oslo, Norway.
We never give up on traditions so after a quick burger at Oslo S we passed Elm Street for a beer to talk through the best vacation ever.
We were both free on Wednesday which was the best decision ever made. It would have been horrible to come back from holidays and straight back to work. We got online for the first time in 8 days, ate late lunch at "Politikern" and watched "Hero" & "Flying Daggers" on DVD before falling asleep.
Now I'm on the train, almost in Stockholm again. I've had the most relaxing and wonderful vacation ever. Finished 2 books (Jenna Jameson biography and Bukovski's "Pulp"). Tomorrow is rehearsal day and on Saturday we're playing Els Rock in Holland.

Woke up after a really good nights sleep and it was Sunday already. I decided to visit the gym again while Jeanette tried the water aerobics in the pool. We spent the rest of the day in and by the pool and after dinner we decided to go shopping in "The Old Market". Damn! I've never been called Bob Marley so many times in my entire life. It was crazy. Most people thought I was from Holland and screamed "Rasta", if I would have seen a hair saloon I would have cut off my dreads the same minute.
But we found a lot of cool stuff there for a very good price.
After 2 hours we were totally exhausted from saying "No thanks", "I'm from Sweden and she's from Norway", "Bob Marlely is Dead", "I don't want your camels" and finally "I'm from China can't you tell?". We jumped into a cab and got back to our room.
After breakfast on Monday we took trip with a so called Glass Boat. It was pretty cool at first to see all the fishes and corals through the floor but I got so annoyed by one of the guides that put on really loud music with speakers just screaming out treble. Finally we stopped and we jumped in for some snorkeling. The way back was really nice sitting on deck drinking a coke and watching the coastline of Sharm El Sheikh. When we got back it was only 12:30 PM and we had a whole day to just relax. In the evening we went to Grill House for dinner, very good food and service.

At first my head felt really heavy waking up and I thought it was gonna be tough to enjoy sunbathing and the rest of our daily procedures but in fact it was just what made me feel good again. A good book, "hair of the dog" and a refreshing swim among all the "nEMO"-looking fishes.
We had reserved a table at the "Love Boat" for the night, it was truly an experience. Really good food, service, atmosphere and entertainment. I even got to try out the belly dancing... hehe.

Friday started off like every other day. Sun lotion, breakfast, sun, swimming & snorkeling in the ocean, beer, sun, swimming, beer and pancakes, sun and so on until the afternoon came up on us and we went up to the pool for a last refreshing cool-off and a beer in the "Deep in Bar".
After dinner we decided to take a cab into Naama-Bay for a couple of drinks. Tourists like we are we first walked into Hard Rock Café for a couple of Heineken then we found a more traditional place called Zaza with over priced drinks but really qualitative entertainment like belly dancing, live music and some guy spinning round and round for one hour. I have a vague memory of showing the staff my Skinny bin Laden trick.
After crashing a salsa bottle in Pizza Hut we decided to call it a night and headed back to the hotel at 4:00 AM.
