Where is Peter?

Well, where am I? I have been rather invisible here and I haven’t been able to find the time to write anything here. I know it is just a question of prioritizing but my evening just seem to vanish these days (movies, reading, surfing, working).
February has been a rather eventful month… We went on a very spontaneous vacation where Tovah broke her arm the first night there and we had to spend two days at the local hospital. We were at the hospital yesterday removing the plaster and pulling out the pins in her arm! That was actually quite scary. She had to 10cm long pins inside her arm sticking out from her elbow and the doctor pulled them out using pliers!! Scary!!! Tovah is doing very well but is not allowed to go to daycare this week as there is still a small small fracture so she is spending time at home with Johanna. We will get money back via the insurance company but I don’t know how much yet. The total cost excluding food was about 19500:-
Work wise my application for associate professor is now being reviewed by the ”sakkunniga” and I have applied for the professor in Media Technology. Otherwise it has been rather uneventful now when I no longer is division head.
I became with an iPod as well!! Cool little device but I must admit that they could have done the user interface much much better. I am a bit disappointed in Apple. They are supposed to be the best on UI, right?
Yesterday, I updated the flash on my Tungsten C with the update 2 which was release March 1 in the US. Unfortunately it didn’t work on the international version of the device and I got sync problems and totally lost wavelan functionality. Called support and they told my I am a stupid user and I have to pay 140€ to get it fixed 🙁 Well, I found a solution after a nights bad sleep. I copied the flash from Johnny’s Palm using the JackSprat application. Beta 3.0b3 supports Tungsten C. WOOHOO!!
Last week I started reading a new book on how to loose weight without training and I actually lost 4 KG in 5 days!!! It is all about eating right. This morning I was actually up 1 KG (i.e. 3 KG loss total since I started). Not bad at all and I feel much better. Less fat, more fibers and more vegetables.
I have also been trying to live more in the present and that has allowed me to attend a few parties during the last month. The D-sektion 20 year dinner where we were 4 oldies (hey I was on the 10-year dinner as well 🙂 and here I am on the scene making a fool out of myself. I was actually supposed to go out and party the day after the dinner as well but I didn’t succeed with that. I guess I am getting to old 🙂 The weekend after that it was Ludd Taco-party and to that party this old man brought his daughter and wife 🙂 Two very good parties indeed! I had very much fun and just by being myself in the present I guess I can have very much fun even though I don’t know to many people there.
I have watched a few good movies such as the Calendar Girls, Lost in Translation, Stolen Summer and Love Actually just to mention a few.
I think that is all that has happened during February! 🙂
At 19.45 I have a date with my wife and we are going to watch Tears of the Sun with Bruce Willis. Perhaps not the most romantic movie but it seems good.
