How many times a day…

…do you think people come in asking for a bowl of noodles?

Roxette picks your wine

Seriously. I’m at the liquor store and this sign says “Per Gessle selection”. That’s the guy in Roxette. They love him here. However, I prefer an Ace of Base merlot.

Learning about Sweden

This is about the seventh Swedish class I’ve taken since I moved to
Sweden and already on day one, we were asked to read an article about Abba. Every class I’ve ever been in makes you read about Abba and Ikea.

On a side note, we also had to read intensely depressing poems from immigrants that have moved to Sweden. They really like to play up the whole Bergman and darkness vibe. I just wonder why they choose this for a class of immigrants. Are they trying to connect in some way and feel ashamed of their happy flower-wearing, herring-eating lifestyle? I’d really like to know who decides the reading selections in these textbooks. Probably another immigrant trying to warn everyone.

Well I guess if you eliminate most of your family and friends you won’t have to buy as much.

Bruce Willis – children’s author?

I saw this book in a store last week.  My first thought was – “Bruce Willis wrote a children’s book?”

Took me 2 minutes until I realized that the book is by 2 authors with the last names of Bruce and Willis.

Don’t tell me the publishers didn’t notice that when they printed the cover.
