Morning Plus: Opening my e-mail to find that some lovely person has gifted me with 6 months of paid LJ account AND a year of extra user pics.
I am beyond moved.
Rain is streaking my window, and the flags are blowing to the left today, straight out, ends snapping and frayed. It's grey and cloudy but the clouds have a high lavender look to them, making me wonder if it might not clear up later in the day.
It's a half day at work, and I'll leave around lunchtime, assuming that I get everything done. Tomorrow is All Saint's Day here in Sweden, and I'm betting that we'll see a few trick-or-treaters as Swedish children are a bit confused on the logistics of Halloween. Tonight Anders is taking me, along with the children, out to dinner to celebrate my new job. Yesterday, while he was home with the kids (it's fall break for Swedish schools) he vacuumed and dusted and did laundry. Can you feel the love tonight!
Cracking Me Up: Top 10 Reasons Why Saddam Didn't Attack Sweden
Couldn’t Have Said It Better:
No sun - no moon!
No morn - no noon -
No dawn - no dusk - no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member –
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds! -
