Having a brief chat with somebody. :)
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Spending the day yesterday with a friend who I haven't seen for over a year. Lots of talking, visiting 2nd-hand bookstores, a nice lunch out... Just a wonderful day!

I think I was about 11 the first time I flew. It was from Leeds/Bradford to Jersey (Channel Islands). Then we got the hovercraft over to France. I was so excited by the whole experience and was the first on the plane!! :rolleyes: :D

No, I've never flown. I've only been to Sweden before with cruise ship. I'll be so nervous :D

New and used book store opening in the nearest city. That means I can actually go there on a regular basis.

They will also sell gourmet coffee (none for me, thanks), sweet rolls and such, and gifts. Looking forward to my first visit.
