Plus gossips, rumors, lies and pure fiction

One month into the new millennium and things are starting to
look, erhm, interesting! :-)
I am still enjoying life as unemployed and to utilize that
to the maximum I will go to Mexico for a three weeks vacation.
So until the 19th of February you will be able to reach me via
hokan_pettersson@hotmail.com Please try to avoid sending
any large attachments during this period as I will have problem
downloading them.

Just for your information I had a GREAT New Years Eve here in
Stockholm, and since then I have had the great pleasure to host
Cliff and Paul from Australia here for a few days. I wish I
could tell you all fun things we did, but unfortunately I have
to censor out that piece of information from this mail. :-)

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed a
desire to become a "great" writer.

When asked to define "great", he said: "I want to write
stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people
will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will
make them scream, cry, wail, howl in pain, desperation and

He now works for Microsoft writing error messages.

Hokans Top Five List is now back online again, and the first
list for year 2000 looks like this:

1) Palm Pilot V
How I managed to live my life without this wonderful device
I just don't understand. And with the Backgammon game
installed I never have to worry about having a boring time.
2) Koh Phangan (The Restaurant)
Although it is getting increasingly harder to get a table
at this restaurant, it is still one of the worlds absolute
best places to have a dinner at. Can not be described, has
to be experienced.
3) Blacksmith
Seems to slowly get some deserved attention and have now a
release date of the CD here in Europe. Looking forward to be
able to host their release party at Hard Rock Cafe later this
4) Aftonbladet & Annika Sundbaum-Mellin
Not only does she write a lot of articles I really enjoy, but
for all the hard work she has put in to write about our rock
clubs here in Stockholm makes her a worthy Top Five member.
5) Day Trading
I haven't got around to do this yet, but right now it seems like
ALL my friends do nothing but buying and selling stocks over the
internet. Just remember that when you all are rich and wealthy
don't come crawling to me for help! :-)

Anyway, I am 18 hours away from getting on that plane to Mexico,
so I need to start digging out that sun tan oil I haven't had a
chance to use since my Thailand trip! :-)

Until next time,

Have a great one!


Won't you take me   back?
