I can no longer resist the call of the crowd, the longing for the leap. I've achieved lemminghood. I'm creating an Amazon wishlist.
Happy dance for packages: 3 books came today, thanks Mom! I'm almost done with my current read, so this was perfect timing.
They're going to televise the trial of Anna Lindh's murderer on Swedish TV. They've been airing commercials for it all evening, like it was a newly released prime-time reality show. This bothers me. Quite a lot.
Yesterday evening, before we went to bed, I caught a few minutes of some documentary on TV that was featuring eXtreme body artists. The couple that was being interviewed had full-body tattoos and multiple piercings. The man had implanted two small cones under the skin of his scalp to look like horns. The tattoo covering his torso and limbs (still in progress) was a blue jigsaw puzzle. His girl had huge black zigzaggy tiger stripes over her entire body (also still in progress), her face, and was in the process of shaving her head and getting her skull tattooed as well. The stripes went right up under her eyes, so she had to have the skin around the underside of her eyes tattooed. OW It was hideous. Just unbelievable. Anders said one of the people they showed before I came in had had his tongue split to make it forked, like a snake's. People are so so strange. I don't even have pierced ears (virgin lobes!), which I'm sure they would have found equally bizarre.
