You know that song I was singing a couple of posts ago? The one about summer? Yeah, well, we had it. It's apparently over now. O Summer, you tease!

It's been pouring rain, grey, lowering cloud cover and FREEZING COLD for 2 days with no end in sight. We have transitioned from summer, summer, summer, summer to November in one fell swoop. Maybe not freezing, exactly, but DAMN, it's cold. And you thought I was kidding when I put 'sweden' as one of the season choices on my last poll.

Interesting* info from my poll:
  • A WHOPPING 32 of you (so far) are right-handed. I'm a bit boggled by that. For some reason, I thought it wouldn't be so one-sided. helloheather and ozswede, it's me and you against the world!

  • Admit it milly_bogtrot, you only picked 'vegemite' because you felt sorry for it being left out

  • Nobody picked winter. ozswede was the only one to pick winter. Not very many snowbunnies in the bunch, apparently.
I think I'm a bit work-obsessed at the moment. I have a lot of it. I don't want to leave when the day is technically over because I want to keep working, to finish my projects, to keep ahead of the game, because I love what I'm doing. I think about work a lot outside of work. Tonight, on the way home, at 9 p.m., from the AWC meeting, as I was passing through Lund and past my office building, I actually thought to myself "you could go in and work for an hour." I can't decide if this is bad or good.

Stupid Outlook is on the stupid fritz again and not downloading my emails from the server. This happened not so long ago, and I finally managed to fix it, but I can't remember what I did. Stupid Outlook.

An Appliance Every Household Needs...Some More Than Others...You Know Who You Are:

fart vacuum

Karin drew this machine and carefully cut it out all the way, and brought it home to present to Anders.
Karin: Here Papa, this is for you.
Anders: Thank you. What is it?
Karin: It's a vacuum. This (points to 1) is the battery for this (points to 3) that tells you if it's full or not.
Anders: And this? (points to 2)
Karin: That's the battery to the On/Off switch** (points to 4). Those are wheels so you can pull it around the house (points to 5).
Anders: Ah. And what's this one? (points to 6)
Karin: That's the button you push to vacuum up farts!

Bright and Bouncy Birthday Wishes to jes6ica!
