New frames

This is the feeling I get from my new glasses.





Iris-Apfel III

That I’m somewhere in between Amy from Big Bang Theory and Iris Apfel.

It can translate to a eccentric nerd – but isn’t that just another term for scientist?

At the dentist

Today I bit my dentist.

It wasn’t my fault. I couldn’t even feel it. What I did feel, however, was him trying to pull out my tooth. So it was in pure defence that my jaws closed around his finger.

I went home and spent my Christmas doing what I’ve done for 27 years now.

We watched Donald Duck on Swedish TV.

And the traditional family photo was taken – courtesy of Olle.

We ate lots of leftovers.

We took the ferry to Bergö to visit my grandparents.

There was singing – that was interrupted by my grandmother who took the opportunity to hand out candy.


And there was lots of snow – and a new house underneath it all.

Today a day like other days


I couldn’t get access to the work plan I’m writing until one o’clock. They had some problem with the network service.

I couldn’t add references to my work plan. RefWorks is an idiotic program.

I couldn’t transfer a mouse to another cage since it was running and jumping like crazy. I had to ask one of the animal care takers to do it for me. embarrassing!

I went home to bake a cake. Used 4dl cream, two lemons and 250g shredded coconut. And 2dl salt!

And I’ve been so happy!

A happy song to sing when nothing is going your way:

*The best yoghurt in Finland – Kalinka top, by Ingman. Totally artificial. When other yoghurt brag about containing real berries, this one only contains some kind of froth. But it tastes great!


*After living without mascara for two weeks due to a stubborn eye infection I now have great lashes 🙂

*Other things that make you feel like you’re good-looking, for example when a guy starts talking to you in the street, just like that, for no reason what so ever.


*My new blood glucose monitor. It looks like a tiny porsche, and it has wireless connection. What more can you ask for?!

*When Oliver sings Monty Python’s “Every sperm is sacred” at work.

*Finding a place for the things you love. I’ve now got two icons standing in the shelf above my stove, and my beloved indians of course!

My cousin André is getting married in a couple of weeks and I think I’ll be wearing these (otherwise I’d be completely black…)

Living so close to the city center has its advantages. I eat a lot more strawberries, cherries and peas than usually and my apartment looks a lot nicer too.

Today I ignored my want for eating porridge in the mornings and went to get a tan instead of buying a microwave oven.

Did not get a tan since I got out around 6pm.

Did however get to spend some time with my favourite author William Gibson and read sentences like: “The Panther Modern leader, who introduced himself as Lupus Yonderboy, wore a polycarbon suit with a recording feature that allowed him to replay backgrounds at will.”

And I know nothing about computers, so I’m lost half of the time. I just like to use them. Like for watching things on surfthechannel.com. Have almost finnished the last season of Project runway.

So really, I like TV.

Today I’ve also; watched My name is Earl 🙂 Watched some mice sperm, Eaten some cinnamon pecan nuts, Washed a machine of clothes, Gone shopping for food and currently I’m Baking a bread.

And I’m wondering why I always have more energy when I get home from work than when I’m at work. But today I had a laboratory animal course and just sat and listen to legal issues and such.

Important info: Killing an animal is not considered an experiment. I am therefore allowed to kill an animal even before I’m allowed to keep it in a cage.

My kitchen as promised. My curtains name is Bean:
