The New Dawn rose bush I've been pampering has almost outgrown its trellis.

The New Dawn rose I’ve been pampering has almost outgrown its trellis.

  • Movie: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Two film-making high school boys befriend a girl just as she is diagnosed with leukaemia. Grade: Pass With Distinction.
  • Heard this ad for contact lenses offering prices that are “up to 70% of what you usually pay”. You may want to think that through again, guys.
  • Swedish Racist Party representative makes confused motion to Parliament about removing state subsidies from newspapers that don’t actually have those subsidies, capping the percentage of the media that members of a given ethnic group may own, and changing the programming on state television back to what it was like in the 50s and 60s.
  • When I look myself up in LIBRIS, Sweden’s main bibliographical database, and sort the results by “relevance”, I find this. My most relevant publications are the articles I wrote around age 20 in Nintendo-Magazinet. My least relevant publication is a 2007 journal paper on a gold foil figure die.
  • Dreamed that I was at a conference wearing my dressing gown.
  • You know, jars and tubs sealed with aluminum foil and then a plastic lid on top. Let’s all agree that once you have opened the aluminium foil even just a little, it must be removed completely. Leaving it at half mast under the plastic lid is just wrong.
  • Reading a 1935 Dennis Wheatley novel where plane and phone are still spelled ‘plane and ‘phone.
  • When it says ”DJ”, think ”organ grinder”.
