Glad Midsommar!! (Happy Midsummer)

You know...I am funny about a few things...cleanliness is my biggest peeve...Everything has to be clean..I have to be clean... You know shower everyday etc etc..I am a freak about it. It grosses me out not to be clean and it is a HUGE turn-off for me. I don't know why but I was thinking about this last night. I can't imagine that if I didn't shower everyday, nobody would want to be near me, let alone my husband touch me or kiss me..lol...right???..strange I know but I seriously thought about this...My first rule of thumb..have a bath everyday..

Second rule of thumb......don't be lazy. Thats another turn-off for me. I just feel..I don't know how to explain but I hate laziness, plain and simple. So anyways I didn't know what else to blog about and I thought I should write something, so this is what you get..oh yeah and well today is the second largest holiday in Sweden next to Christmas...


Normally it should be sunny on this day so celebrations can continue as normal, however it is raining..and we are all going to Stig's house for the party....You can read a little about Midsommar here..... We are just waiting for another hour before we go...I'll have my mobile phone so I should get a lot of good pictures...Apparently it's all about eating sill, which is actually rotten fish..yuck!!! and getting drunk and lots of dancing...and other traditional Swedish foods..I dunno..we will see what happens and considering the bad weather, I am guessing I am going to miss out on a lot of normal traditions seeing as this is normally done outside.

EDIT:
SO! Here you are..my photos from last night, our Midsommar right HERE..My husband also posted something about it as well. His link is to the right of the page...Sorry my photos are a little grainy...my mobile phone camera was extremely slow for some reason..oh well!..And yes I too danced around the Maypole, looking like a frog jumping around a mini fallus..hmm..

But we played a drinking game and if you got a certain card you had to do the dance, and we were all a little tipsy! Well we all did chug Vodka and Jack Daniels whiskey so! And I labeled all my pix for everyone too...Its funny, in the pix all my time stamps are there and you can see that we started to drink around 630pm?? and on past midnight we were still going at it..lol.. Thats like 6 hours of drinking right there..hahaha

It looked so bright inside, even though it was raining outside. It's been raining here today too. Jason and I have been inside veging out all day cause we both have the flu.

Yeah it looked bright out...But it just rained, eventually it stopped raining but by then it was too late and then it would just drizzle rain more and more. Sorry you both are sick!!

All this paganism, so shocking. The maypole is supposed to symbolise a penis pushing into the feminine earth for fertility, it wasn't a very big pole, its what you do with it that counts. It looks like a fine time, plenty of chugging.

Mrs CeCrux said...

Hej knudsen, your exactly right..its what you do with it....we all did a lot with this one!

Actually sill isn't rotten, it's just herring, in this case pickled. Maybe you're thinking of surströmming?

You don´t get clean if you bath?!
You have the shower to wash away the dirt.

The tough of lying in a bath in your own filt it´s disgusting.
