The Wandering Swede

Monday, December 18, 2006

Seasons greetings! Happy Christmas, Merry Hanukkah, Yay Quanza, and Fantastic Festivus! Three days until the family arrives on Friday and the temperature is dropping in accordance. For the past two months it has snowed only once on the first of November, and it has pretty much been hovering around 40 degrees Fahrenheit for the rest of the time. I've finished one of my novels and started the next, but yesterday I had an epiphany: I really should read a book in Swedish *especially* while I am at home because I won't hear the language for nearly a month. So I picked up a book by Jonas Gardell yesterday who is, according to hearsay, the funniest author in Sweden. We shall see.

Everyone has gone home except for Myself and Mike. Most of my room mates are still around, however a large number of them are moving out at the end of the term. Seven of the twelve people in the corridor are leaving so three Swedes and two exchange students shall remain. It will be nice to have a few new faces around.

I'm off to the gym and perhaps a cup of coffee at the Linnea (they have excellent luciabullar). Hope to hear from you all this Christmas and give me a ring after I'm home on the first of January, I've got lots of catching up to do before I head back for Spring term! God Jul!


  • Hi I hope you are all having a great time. We wish we were there. I was wondering, I was looking at your friend Mikes blog, (so you have something against beards???) He mentioned on his Ostergotland blog that one of his ancestors emigrated to Stanton, IA. Did you know this? You two might be distant relatives. Best wishes to you and your family. Uncle Stu
