It’s drawing near! Recently I decided that I was going to bring my writing and my photography together, and yesterday I threw together a new design for it as well. I now need two thngs: 1. A html-monkey that can take my design and make me a wordpress theme from it AND 2. A good name for the new domain! I desperately need help with both. If YOU have a good idea for a name or have the skill to make my design come alive, PLEASE let me know! There WILL be cake!

 

Nu börjar det närma sig! Nyligen så bestämde jag mig för att sammanföra mitt skrivande och mitt fotande, och igår så slängde jag ihop en ny design för det projektet. Nu behöver jag två saker: 1. En html-apa som kan hjälpa mig att konvertera min design till ett wordpress-tema OCH 2. Ett bra förslag på ett namn till den nya domänen. Om du har en bra idé om namn eller om du har skills för att hjälpa min design att fungera, SNÄLLA säg till! Belöning i form av tårta utlovas!

The Northern Express Experience, English

Posted in Musings / Luddiga tankegångar with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 5, 2011 by gaijin

Picture this: A train is slowly making its way through the forests of the northern parts of Sweden. Inside one of the carts there is a table that is stacked full of different electronic devices. Ranging from cellphones to laptops to mp3-players and other devices I can hardly recognize, this table seems to have it all. The trees are flashing by outside the window and the never-setting sun is hovering close to the horizon. Continue reading

Veckans ämne i Söndagsutmaningen blev “Att vara stolt svensk”. Det vill säga patriotism – att känna stolthet och kärlek till sitt land… att ha de blå-gula färgerna i sitt hjärta… att kunna känna viljan att gå ut i krig och försvara sin nation, att vara beredd att dö för sina landsmän om så skulle behövas.  Nej, det är inte riktigt min kopp thé.

When two become one, English

I didn’t mean for it to happen! Honestly, I didn’t! But in a way, now… it feels inevitable. Like it was destined to be.  Continue reading

My own linguistic evolution, English

Posted in Angry rants from hell, Musings / Luddiga tankegångar with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 2, 2011 by gaijin

Many years ago, I counted myself as a member of the group so affectionately called “language Nazis”. One of those guys who got upset when people couldn’t spell advanced words like “the” or “if”.

Did I miss a memo? English

Posted in Angry rants from hell, Musings / Luddiga tankegångar, Politics / Politik with tags , , , , , on June 1, 2011 by gaijin

I spoke to an acquaintance just the other day. We don’t see each other that often, and we don’t really have anything in common except for a mutual friend… but I like the dude and we usually have fun together. He told me about the weirdest thing – that there is talk about banning something that’s supposedly racist. Continue reading

To Zach, English

As I write this, you are 3,5 years of age. Barely out of the gate in the race of life, and already you’ve had a profound impact on so many people around you. You’re sitting right next to me eating a few crackers; after refusing to eat lunch you’re quite hungry and irritated – dinner is still about an hour away.
