LIGHTEN UP!

Thanks to this excellent Time Waster: Ultimate Flash Face, I didn't get much done of note last night.

Work is crazy busy, and I've got choir tonight, Social Circle tomorrow, and dinner guests on Friday... yow. Guess the family website updates won't be finished this week either.

I detect a lightening in the sky, which makes me happy as this morning's drive through yet another dark drizzly grey grey grey rainy WET landscape was just a drag. The little river that bisects Flyinge has completely overflown its banks and there is standing water everywhere. My fingers and toes are wrinkled in sympathy.

I was realizing last night that before I moved to Sweden, and only just in the past few years, have I gotten to know several Australians and become friends with a few of them. I never gave much thought to Australia before and never met an Australian that I can remember before the friends I've met in the AWC and here on LJ. One of my best friends and her husband moved to Sydney 3 years ago, amid much lamentation on the parts of their friends and family ("It's so far away!"), and I've wanted to go ever since. It just sounds like such a wonderful place, and produces such interesting and fun people. And no, I'm not sucking up to ozswede and courtesy. I mean it. The 23-hour flight isn't so appealing, but I suspect it would be more than worth it. Hopefully, someday I'll get my wish to go down under.
