Following the way of last weekends excursions – Elliott and I went to another indoors flee market.
We found some really nice games as you can see in the images below. Second image from the top is Elliott's own felt creation.
Checking out the cooking description on the rice package from local brand Coop, I noticed something weird.
The description is printed for each of the nordic countries (Iceland excluded), and for some reason the amount of water used is different depending on in which country you live in. For example on one package it states that in Sweden you need 6 dl water to cook 240g rice, in Denmark – just across the water – they only need 4,5 dl. Amazing how much water the danes much be saving.
I know it's the worst excuse. Going up to Gothenburg yesterday to see a client I knew I would spend about 6,5 hours back & forth on the train. So I decided to get a PSP to entertain myself on the trip.
Now, the thing is I've been wanting one since we were at TypeCon in NYC this summer, but I couldn't really come up with a good reason to persuade myself to get one.. For some reason I had a weak moment this Sunday.
Anyway – it's great fun, especially since got the best game in the world to go with it – the latest SSX.
For some reason though, I forgot all about the new machine I bought ,and just played the last 40 minutes before I arrived in back in Malmö. Instead I was listening to some great podcasts from Typeradio.
This Saturday I felt a bit restless after a week working at home. Since none of my family members wanted to go outside and do something, I went on my own. I ended up at a local indoor flee market.
And for just a few SEK I was the owner of these two nice book covers.
My friend Stephen lives in San Francisco (in a timezon 9 hours behind ours). When I wake up on Thursday morning, he's about to go to bed Wednesday evening. This can lead to some interesting dialogue:-D
(and yes – my fast typing skills are not that good)
From sometime in the end of the 90's I've been putting my spare change in different disposers by the door. When it's been filled up I have just put it in plastic bags – planning to go to the bank to get it chnaged into notes. But it never happend, I foirgot about it, and the pile of plastic bags kept growing somewhere deep inside the closet.
Before new years this year we finally went to the bank with all the bags. The bank coolect the bags & and send them off to be counted.
Lotta and I were guessing how much it would amount up to. I think she said 4000 SEK (€ 440), and I said 7000 SEK (€ 760).
Then the bank draft finally arrived. We were both wrong, those little coins were so much nicer to us, it ended up at 13.999 SEK(€ 1520). Wooohoooo!!!!!! :-D
Now we just have to come up with something nice to do with all the money. I'd buy sleep any day if it was possible.
