Just to note to self. Before going to a gym or a swimming pool just make sure you've eaten something substantial at least two hours before. If not then training turns into a torture. In my case the torture by swimming with an empty stomach continued even after the training session finished. The canteen in our office is officially open till 5pm but when I came there around quarter to five I stuck at a closed door. Now it's eight and still I haven't eaten anything since morning while there is still a huge report to write before I can go home and feed myself to death.

The day was full of surprises, both pleasant and quite unpleasant indeed. It turned out there was an air filter installed in my car from the beginning so probably it hadn't been replaced during previous visits to the service till I've risen the question explicitly this time. Anyway it didn't appear very dusty since I don't drive that much.
It happened that a wire connecting left headlight to a control element at the front panel has been disconnected either when a car hit a road bump or when a dead parking light bulb was replaced this morning. That was the reason I failed the inspection today. The process itself was awkward. There was no queue so I was instantly served when I pop up over there. I was asked for the id and for the bill to be paid at the local terminal. The latter returned no change so I had to transfer it to my mobile account. Needless to say I hadn't get the money although the day is almost over. Then the official asked me to drive next to their front door and leave the car. As soon as he got in he drove into a hangar and started to test the brakes and headlights. As soon as he detected the left headlight looks into a wrong direction he drove the car out and left, saying 'You'd better go to the service, kid'. And so I did, luckily the same serviceman who fixed my car this morning was still there. In two shakes of a lamb's tail the wire was reattached and I went back to pass the inspection for the second time. The official simply checked that the headlights are under control again and gave me the certificate. That was it. No one cared to check for a fire extinguisher or a first aid kit. Now I can buy insurance for the coming year and drive wherever I wish.

I think I'd be better off reading Swedish newspapers to get the latest news from now on. Almost every day they report on Russia becoming a mighty military force that stretches its muscles before invading the northern Europe and the Baltic states. Meanwhile in the local media I see this.

Now I'm sitting on a cozy sofa in a customer lounge at the car service and watching how my car's getting fixed on a wall screen. Finally the dead parking light is gonna be fixed as well as an air filter installed. The serviceman looked really surprized when I told him there is no air filer in my car. I hope the humidity level inside will decrease with the filer installed.
Yesterday I drove to a country mall to buy a first aid kit that is necessary to get car insurance. As per the local regulations one needs to pass an official technical examination after the car turns three years old. That's my case exactly so to get insurance I need to make sure the car is in the perfect state and is equipped with a fire extinguiser, first aid kit and a triangular emergency stop poster.
I was told of many weird cases of failed examination due to overdue first aid kit or the triangular poster not conforming to the standard. At the same time there were people claiming they easily passed the examination without even providing content of the trunk for inspection.

On the next day after president Putin granted him Russian citizenship Steven Seagal calls his bank.
- Hello, this is Mr Seagal. Someone transferred $73 to my account by a mistake.
- There is no mistake, sir. This is your pension.
