Today I am happy that...

..I am not on tour at the moment.


- Cause I have THE summer cold and let me tell you that there´s nothing worse than having a cold AND being on tour, knowing you have to get up on stage and sing for 1,5 hour with an itchy, aching and sour throat. Add on that, being tired as hell and having ache in your body.

Those days suck and today since I am not on tour I can take it easy, sleep when Nemo sleeps (who also is having the same shitty cold) and cure myself without any stress;=)

Johan went up at 04.00 in the night to take the train to the airport. That is also one thing I dont miss with touring. Who said touring and being a "rock star" is a glamourous job?;=)

BUT of course there are so many positive things about touring too;=) But these are some of the negative things with it.

Now some more Dayquils, thank God for them! Enjoy the day!


  1. Hi Anette,

    Today I accidentally found on YouTube what is supposed to be a demo leak from Imaginarium. I personally don't believe that a leak could happen to the band, but if it is really the "right" thing you should be aware of it's existence and maybe do something.
    Here is the link:

    Hope you get well soon :)

  2. Nina: haha, that is just fun! Well, no, that is for sure NOT from Tuomas or from the album. But fun though;=) Take care!

  3. Good morning Anette,
    i think too as you told before that being in tour there aro some many things to take in positive e in negative.

    In positive: you can visit so many cities, country, meet many fans and get in touch with them and have a lot of fun.

    In negative: to be far from home, your family, friends, always be in travel in airports.

    When you are on tour, what do you miss more?

  4. Hello Anette !
    Well,i have to wait until 21st June to Summer but the weather is already nice :D Spring has been really nice =)
    You are right,there are many good and bad things when you are on tour but overall i think it must be a good experience ;D
    I'm so anxious to end school,i can't wait to 17th June,i also want my Summer Holidays :D It's was a really hard year but it was nice,i hope next year will be better,but i don't want to think too much about it !
    I hope you feel better <3
    Kisses and Hugs from Portugal

  5. Good evening Anette:)

    Can't be good, sorry to hear that you and Nemo have got a cold, and are not feeling well:((
    Get plenty of rest, and feel better real soon, the both of you.
    Yes, take it easy!
    lots of love,

  6. Hi Anette.
    I am so sorry that you are not feeling well. I too am sick at the moment, and have been for the past two weeks. I must have a weak immune system or something because every time I get sick, it last at least 4 weeks, so I still have quite a few sick days ahead of me. Anyway, I hope that you and your precious baby feel better soon. I am sending you much love.

  7. I hope you feel better soon, and get yourself sone zinc to lessen the duration of the cold.

    Get well hugs!

  8. Aww, I hope you and Nemo get well soon. At least it's summer and not too cold, right? Here it's winter, but just to give you an idea, I'm wearing a short-sleeved shirt and don't feel cold at all, even with the windows open, so it's not really that cold.
    Get well soon. Take care

  9. Hi Annette how are you? my name is gustavo osu a big fan of yours. Please follow me on my blog. I do anything if you do this favor for min please?

    kisses beautiful adore mt

    I'm following my link is

  10. If we stop to think, we'll see that everything has it's good and bad sides... nothing is completely perfect, right? Of course there are some things better than others, but everything has its bad side...
    I think the worst part for me, if I had a famous band and all, it would be flying. I never did, but I am sooo afraid of flying! I'm from Brazil and I am planning to make an interexchange program to the US, and I am totally desperate thinking I'll need to be on a plane for 10, 11 hours until I get there!
    I hope you and Nemo get better soon. ;)

  11. Hi Anette!

    Ugh, sorry to hear that you and Nemo are sick. I know from many experiences that colds SUCK, so I definitely hope that you both feel better soon. Just take it easy, get some rest, and continue taking medicine like you're doing now, and hopefully you'll feel fully better within the next couple days. :)

    Best wishes


  12. Hello Anette.

    There are also a good sites of being "star":
    - interviews and photo sessions;
    - traveling the world;
    - good money;
    - meetings with fans and another artists.

    Of course you would be a vocalist of some local, Swedish band, but would you want ?


  13. Tomasz: Well, of course there´s always nice things with every job. But I just said what I thought is negative with it, like being ill. Enjoy the day!

  14. I understand what do you mean.
    If you get cold, sometimes you can't even speak, but you have to sing...

    Dark Passion Play World Tour was almost two years long. It is impossible to work hard for two years and do not have any health problems.

    I hope that Imaginarium tour will be easier for You.

  15. Good evening Anette,
    i was think about a think that i was reading on facebook... it's the connection to internet gratis or paid in Sweden?

  16. Yeah,to sleeping more I think could be good to me too,for one at times but on the other hand always isn´t so tired and trying to sleep by force is not necessarily good either or doesn´t succeed.

    Well,before I had difficult time to stay awake let´s say between 4 and 6 on morning or that didn´t succeed but there´s not much time yet when I was quite good awake almost to morning 6,went a little long suddenly.Although on the road things can be quite different.

    Good night and see you
