Dabitch's day in Logotypes - a.k.a “Brand timeline portrait”

Dear Jane started it, oh yeah, it's all her fault that I sat here and tried to remember all the brands that I used today and made a timeline of it. Fora brief moment I tried to figure out if I could make a logo-tastic site where one could generate one of these timelines but I soon snapped out of it and just went ahead and photoshopped this little collection of possibly 'exotic' (to non-swedes that is) brands.
Check my timeline out inside.

Now, lets see if you can figure out what's me and what is my daughter. In some cases I couldn't find a logo and just used the item instead.

There might be a logo or two missing, of course, recalling all brands is much harder than it looks - for example I haven't added my bank's logo for the purchases I made after dinner, just the store and the only thing to keep my daughter happy when shopping for food - olive flavoured crisp bread. I know it seems weird but it's actually quite tasty.

I'll do my best to keep track of anyone else doing this (if you link here, I'll find you) and update this post accordingly.
