It's Friday...

Isn't life great??

I mean - a whole weekend to hang out with friends, relax, eat good food, explore other cultures. I'll tell you tomorrow or Sunday what I mean.

Appwiz is coming to visit. Haven't seen him in like 2 years. Should be lots of fun. I'm working on the plan - I promise. It'll be good.

And on the Sweden front: Rebecka is already going over to friends' houses and taking over the instruction of English in her class. Todd is being taken out to lunch by the people at the archives where he hangs out. I'm sure they are a lively gang! :)

Leaving in 29 days. Crazy.

I have no idea what is going on in the world, so I can't comment on that. Anything earth-shattering happen in the last week?

This definitely qualifies as "earth shattering"...

I tripped on a wire this morning outside the Royal Library in Stockholm. It was a wire tied between two metal barricades on either side of a sidewalk leading to the library (a lawsuit waiting to happen in the U.S.). The wire was so low to the ground that I couldn´t see it and I didn´t know what happed until I tripped over the wire and fell almost flat on my face. The metal barricades came crashing down (with plenty of noise) and everyone in the vicinity turned around to see what the stupid American had done (and then in typical Nordic fashion they went about their business as if nothing had happened).

I cut my knee pretty badly and bruised my hand a little. I guess as you get older, such falls are a little more damaging. In any event, I thought I would tell you about it. Only Todd has the ability to get injured while on a research trip to the library.
