Winter Wonderland



Well Winter has been here a few months. We've had a few snows before this but its now been snowing all day and it just makes everything look so majestic. It's been years since a real snow storm that didn't melt away into mush after a few hours.

In fact the whole city looks spectacular with the advent candles and the kids sledding and the snow falling gently around the city.

I've been working my ass off on some IT projects, trying to get more clients, and drinking Jul-Öl (Christmas beer). Devendra Barnhart is on the stereo and I feel like a little child again (but I don't want to marry one).

I almost feel a little sad to be going to London for a week on Wednesday. It will be a tough week of seeing old friends and drinking ales all day in the pubs. And my parents will be there so they can take me shopping at Selfridges and out to eat at restaurants I can't afford, etc. Somebody's got to do it.

And after all, when I get back there will still be 4 months of Swedish Winter left.
