PICK ONE, THEN COMMENT! COMMENT SOME MORE! I LOVE IT!
I wonder what else I could write about besides BREAKFAST that would get so many comments.

Candy favorites?

Sex positions?

Ways to add extra time to your day?

The best book you EVER read, EVER?

Nah. Bacon and cinnamon sugar toast and English muffins and filmjölk would probably top them all.

Total monster drama day today. I'm wiped. I fucking HATE drama. Hate it. With a capital F.

Tomorrow Anders comes home and I'm taking the kids to sushi. Also buying stuffing at the American store. Take that, drama! I get knocked down, but I get up again, you ain't never gonna keep me down!

I saw a nice photo in the Chamber of Commerce member magazine. They had a special about making business in Asia and on one page illustrated the differences and similarities with one plate. On the left hand side you have a set of sushi with accessories. On the right hand side you have Swedish pickled herring with accessories. So close, but still different. I can see if I can dig up or at least scan that image if you like.

The article also told me something I didn't know: in Japan and China they count in multiples of 10,000 (man/wan) instead of 1,000. The language doesn't have a word for million. One million would be 100 man (wan) which is why many interpretors would ask you how many zeroes there is in a big number before they translate your figures. In the same way in some countries in the South-East Asia, they count in multiples of 100,000. 3 million would be written as 30,00,000.
