Is my mind on work? Nope, it's at home packing and thinking about what we need to bring with us tomorrow for the 4-day weekend of zoo tramping at Kolmården and TLC and sailing with ozswede and tallefjant in Nynäshamn!

I dropped the catalog off at the printer at 4 p.m. yesterday and this morning before 10 a.m. I have already had to deal with FOUR emails of changes from one company who apparently didn't proofread their own text carefully enough. argh. Good thing they got the changes to me now though, instead of coming with them next week when it would be too late!

Language Niceties: Swedish makes the same distinctions with glo (stirra) and blänga as English does with stare and glare.

Q: How many Freudians does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Two... one to hold the lightbulb and one to hold my penis.... no, my mother!.... my father!.... NO! the ladder!*

Oj! Just got handed yet ANOTHER 2-page product brief AND 2 advertisements to do...back to work!

If you have time on your way to Kolmården, or home again, check out Bergs Slussar outside of Linköping, I think the kids would like it (it's in my neck of the woods!) or, better yet, stop by for a fika :) I'm right off of E4...

Do you have a link for that, Dawn? I'm not sure what I'm turning up on Google is right.

There are a lot of links, but I can't find an official one....

Here's one that mentions it:

It is a bunch of locks on the Göta Kanal...I just know that T's little half siblings loved it there, (they were about 4 and 6? at the time) and it is a good place to stop for ice cream and there are some animals there. If there are boats you can see them going through the locks, which is really neat. If you go, make sure to walk down past the big lake part to the locks near Roxen, that is where the ice cream kiosk and animals are...and the best views!

Thanks! I'm not sure we have either the time or money to do anything apart from what we've already planned, but I'll definitely bring it up with Anders! If not this time, then hopefully some other time in the near future :) :)

It's free except for parking (and ice cream of course!)

Well, if the weather is anything over on the coast the way it is here in Örebro, you will need to pack anchors just to hold the kids on the ground. Plus lots of dry clothes, since along with the wind from the bowels of hell, it's also slamming down rain. I've been out moving my pelargonar off the shelves onto the floor, since the wind is busy whipping everything to death.

NO NO NO NONONONONONOO!!!! It's raining here too. :( I've heard bad things about cold weather this weekend. :(

I hope Marie has a good bad-weather plan in place. argh!

Have a wonderful weekend! I so wish we could see you. *smile*

Actually, I'm not sure what gawk would be in Swedish. I think I'd probably use stirra. I can't get at a dictionary at the moment to doublecheck though.
