Weekend fun

I've had such a good weekend! I spent most of yesterday and today at Liseberg, yesterday with Ella and Stoffe, and today with Ella and Cecilia. 
Yesterday we went on one of the water rides, got stuck under a small waterfall for a couple of minutes and got COMPLETELY drenched. I am not even kidding when I say that I was dripping when we finally got off the damn ride. This happened when we still planned on spending several more hours at the park, which we also did, but man were we cold and wet, for hours! I jumped straight in the shower when I came home, hot hot water, and then went to bed in full pajamas with a hot water bottle clutched to my stomach. Ugh.

Ella and Stoffe :)

Little things in life that are nice and apply to my weekend:
We skipped the horrible water ride today, but since it rained every now and then we got wet today as well. Our clothes dried nicely between the showers, but my socks and shoes were wet and cold all day :(

I laughed A LOT today. I love uncontrollable, can't-stop-or-breathe-laughter, and Ella and Cecilia are really good at making me laugh. According to Ella, I have a kind of laugh which makes her laugh just because it sounds so funny (and because I look so funny, because I often laugh so hard no noise comes out), and then she starts laughing and I keep laughing and then I almost pee my pants, so I stop laughing. But then we start laughing again. I'm almost tired of laughing now, and I certainly am tired of the word "laugh".

One thing that's really nice about hanging with Ella and Cecilia is that they get my references to things like Supernatural and Harry Potter and we can talk and laugh and fangirl for hours about this stuff. Most of my other friends don't get most of my references and I'm sure they wish I'd just shut up about it already. Getting my nerd off while riding roller coasters and eating cotton candy is absolutely the best way that I can think of to spend a day. Take it away Ernie!

Riding roller coasters is, without a doubt, one of my favourite things to do. I ride them all, no hesitation, no fear, just pure joy. Ella was too scared to ride Atmosfear (afraid of heights, lame-o!), but damn, I just love it! And the view over Gothenburg is great! Balder is my absolute favourite at Liseberg, closely followed by Jukebox, which, without fail, makes me laugh every time I ride it.

 I discovered today that autumn has sneaked up on Gothenburg. The leaves are slowly starting to change colour and the air is getting cooler. Also, The Rain has begun. Every Gothenburgian knows what this means. But I love autumn (perfect time for fika!), so I don't mind the slightest.

All this running about, laughing, screaming, eating fast food and snacks, and acting like the child I actually still am has made me tireeeeeeed! My spirit may be that of a child, but my body knows it's older than that, so it punishes me with aches and soreness and fatigue. So I plan on curling up in my bed to watch Peter Pan while listening to the autumn winds outside my window. Mys!
