BFC!  Come to YHZ!


Good week

November 22, 2012

First, Megan at work brought me back some Kex (like a super-thin Kit-Kat) and Skum Bananer (chocolate covered marshmallow bananas) from the Scandinavian shop on her trip to Seattle. Today, my order from a Swedish book shop arrived. I got a calendar, and also this, the greatest book ever:

Miffy i snön: A story about Miffy, the bunny from the Netherlands, playing in the snow, written in Swedish. I’m pretty sure this book was made for me and me alone.

Not going to bother signing off on this one.

I don’t know what a “dotsam” is, but I think I owe it a beer. Partial credit (maybe a finder’s fee pint) for Tyson and Rozie for passing along the message immediately. Best part? By the time I got there, the “Maps $1” signs had been changed to “Maps 2 for $1″. Six bucks. It was basically Disneyland in there. I also talked to an almost-equally-excited girl while searching and resisted the urge to propose on the spot. This, combined with the pelicans yesterday, makes me think I’m deathly ill and some elaborate Make-A-Wish thing has been set up for me.

Kat’s reaction when I showed her this video.


“Pro”. Yeah.

I used to love ACDSee. Past tense.


Almost, Google Translate. Almost.

So I’m shopping from a Swedish bookstore (as one does on days off), alternating between Swedish and English with Chrome’s page translation when I need it. Sometimes, as you’d expect, some words get, well, lost in translation. This one got a double-take, though.
