LOOK what I received in the mail yesterday! I have the best readers in the world! This is what Swedish Veronika sent me all the way from California! Johan Theorin’s first book and a load of Swedish gossip magazines. THANK YOU, Veronika! It will be a true joy to read this book (called “Echoes of the Dead” in English in case you feel like reading it. Theorin is a fantastic author.)
And here is a list that I found on Anna's and Marianne's blogs.
1. How many suitcases do you own?
Maybe five…But they are getting pretty crappy so I think it is time to buy new ones.
2. Would you rather take the picture than being in the picture?
I am the photographer in this family, but I don’t mind being in pictures either.
3. Has anyone ever called you lazy?
“Peter, all the time. He thinks I just sit there with my computer when I should be cleaning the flat or something :)” HAHA, those are Anna’s words, but I think I can sign on this…MY Peter probably thinks JUST the same…
4. When did someone last come onto you?
Recently, at Barnes and Noble, a guy came up and complimented me on my style. He was my age, maybe a bit older. Kind of funny!
5. What did you eat for dinner?
Tonight (Monday) I will make spaghetti and meat sauce, but instead of the spaghetti Yours Truly will eat a pizza salad along with the meat sauce, Swedish style. All the Swedes reading this know what I am talking about: shredded cabbage, a bit of olive oil, vinegar and black pepper. I am lying so LOW on white carbs now as I am losing weight.
6. Do you use hooded sweaters?
Not often, only when I am out on PW’s…
7. Who called you last?
Peter telling me that he’ll be home at 19:30.
8.What is your favourite ride at an amusement park?
The octopus (me too, Anna), or it used to be. When I rode one at Power Park this summer I almost puked, so I think I am getting wimpier and wimpier every day when it comes to amusement parks.
9. How big is your nearest shopping centre?
My nearest shopping center is South Lakes, and that is where I buy my food at Safeway. My nearest shopping center for fashion is Reston Town center (which I LOVE), and my favorite mall is Tysons Corner in McLean, VA, about 20 minutes from Reston by car.
10. How many siblings do you have?
Two bros (twins) and my sis…
11. How many chairs do you have at your kitchen table?
12. Do you have a desktop or laptop?
Laptop(s) and an old desk top that is slower than molasses.
13. Do you want to get a tatoo or piercing right now?
No, I hate tatoos! And I have pierced all body parts I want to pierce, i.e. my ears! (ditto Anna)
14. What do you bring when you go to the cinema?
I used to buy pop corn at the movies, but now I only get a soda.
15. Do you like to fly?
No, not really. I think it is pain, literally. Especially being on long night flights to Europe. It is so un-comfortable. Also, I am a bit scared…AND, I hate turbulence. SO MUCH!!
16. Do you care about the calorie count in what you buy?
Yes, I do. You bet! Definitely now when I am on this lo-cal diet. I actually think about it all the time…
17. How old will you be next time?
40+4 in March next year. I cannot frigging believe it!!
18. Do you like to hug people?
19. Do you have any allergies?
Yes, to cats, dogs and grass.
20. Do you like your living quarters?
Yes, a lot! BUT, I wish it was bigger. I want a separate dining room, and I want a garage…But I love Reston, as long as I am living in the states I don’t EVER want to move from the best suburb in the DC area. NO way! Here you’ve got it ALL!!
AND DO GUESS what Peter, Keith, Lotta , Magnus and myself are off to this afternoon:
WE are going to see U2!!
Yes, tonight!! But we are leaving mid-afternoon! We will be tailgating before the show starts. Needless to say; we cannot wait!
I don’t think I am allowed to bring my camera inside the arena, but I do have my iPhone, so maybe I can sneak a pic or two!
Have a great Tuesday!
