The confessed killer of more than 90 people in Norway wanted to prepare by hiring two top-class prostitutes and drinking some expensive French wine, the document he distributed on the Internet showed on Monday.
In a 1,500-page manifesto and instruction manual for would-be "crusaders" against Islam and liberal European politicians, the document written by Anders Behring Breivik says preparations should include a photo session after a "few hours in a solarium to look fresher".
Breivik, who police say has confessed to the killing, was appearing in court on Monday on a police request to hold him for a further eight weeks after his Friday detention.
The manifesto sets out Breivik's ideas and also documents a period from April 2002 to the day before the July 22 attacks, showing a mixture of obsessive planning and glimpses of his everyday life.
"This house is infested with beetles. Just now I was about to reach for a chocolate in my goodie bag and a beetle had crawled in," he wrote of the farm where he made his preparations.
The document discusses friends and family and says at the end of April he spent time "partying" before getting down to work on the farm he rented to make a bomb.
He wrote that he was surprised by visitors a number of times and sometimes suspected it was the police.
He said he had been storing three bottles of expensive French red wine. "Considering the fact that my martyrdom operation draws ever closer I decided to bring one to enjoy with my extended family at our annual Christmas party in December."
"My thought was to save the last flask for my last martyrdom celebration and enjoy it with the two high-class model whores I intend to rent prior to the mission," he wrote.
It was not clear from the document whether he did do that.
But he said in an entry dated July 11 that he had "bought a lot of exquisite food and candy" to recharge his batteries.
The document also shows an extensive use of steroids and protein drinks to provide him with more energy and one point he writes that he wishes he could obtain "aggressiveness pills".
Breivik wrote of himself as a righteous crusader on a mission to save European "Christendom" from a tide of Islam.
