Today my laptop wanted to see how skydiving, without a parachute felt like. I was going to get off the bus and it decided to take one small step for computers and a great giant leap for laptop-kind. Crappy pun warning; it’s a leaptop! It took a lap of faith! Oh… On top of it all, I lost my Travel Adapter / Converter as well (the most expensive of the bunch), so now we’re down to one way of charging all of our freedom loving electrical devices made in China.
We took care of some business today, involving getting my wife to pay for my hosting, because this o’l blog does not create any return on investment just yet, it’s strange how much $5.99 costs when you don’t have $5.99 to your name. But here’s to brighter futures!
So, I’m back and mooching off the free wi-fi at Norrtälje Stadsbibliotek. The future is now people, Internet in the air! I even found out that you can get free water from the café that’s next door, now I’m never going to be leaving!
Nothing new on the work front as of yet but I’m hoping that something will happen soon, my cell phone is today also reduced to nothing and singing the pay-as-you-go blues–I think it misses AT&T and America’s expensive (and totally unfair) mobile plans.
So, how do I like to be back in communist Sweden? It’s nice, the novelty wore off pretty quick due to a few hardships but at least the spring (even though it feels like summer) is here now to cheer you up. The nickels and dimes left from our move here was used to buy bed linens, twice! Who knew linens and things cost so much in this country? Anyhow, we are in good health sort of, and we have received socialized universal healthcare and it was good to say the least.
Wanted to get a line from my wife into this post and I asked if she likes it here she said: ‘Yeah, it’s a beautiful place’.
Makes me happy, believing I made the right choice. That and Sweden won gold in the World Hockey Championship yesterday, beating Switzerland, Canada and the US :) Didn’t know we had it in us, congratulations are in order!
Hope I can spend time with some of my old friends soon, the wife and I are walking around saying as soon as we get some money, let’s eat this, let’s cook that, let’s go there… Soon baby, soon.
