A decent phone at last! The quality of the photos is quite a step-change from my last SE!
It's supposed to celebrate a mathematical breakthrough made at the university.
Taken just after midnight at lake Nydala. It never really got dark and by the time we'd cycled home it was quite bright again.
As we watched, sunset melted into sunrise and the sky was deep blue, purple and gold. A moment not even midges and Swedes loudly playing euro-metal through tinny speakers could spoil.
At last a chance to explore out of town. We did see a Moose, but I wasn't quick enough with the camera I'm sorry to say : (
This saturday saw the annual cultural/music festival in Umeå. The last pic is a belly-dancing troupe a friend belongs to (although she wasn't performing this time).
The last-but-one shot shows Melissa looking in incredulity at people advertising a beachwear shop by basically pretending to be at the beach. Live modeling isn't uncommon. I had the shock of my life when I first saw the 'mannequins' in a clothes shop move around...
Been trying to get hold of this for a while but it was always out-of-stock on Amazon. I'm a Dr Who skeptic (as many of you know) but this audiobook includes a story written by William Gallagher, a man I came to know through his UK DVD Review podcast (now sadly off-air) and am now pleased to call a friend. I'm looking forward to finding the time to listen to it!
A comparison between FrootLoops sourced from different sides of the Atlantic reveal the surprising absence of the beloved blue loop. The blue loop is generally acknowledged by connoisseurs to be the greatest and most tasty of loops. Even the logo on the box is affected by this travesty, with the purple loop having to fill-in for its missing brother. This deplorable situation seriously degrades the visual appeal of the box. Note also the flabby, over-large appearance of the EU loop, in contrast to the smaller but perfectly-formed all-American loop.
The differences between European and American FrootLoops are stark. It is quite clear that the poor European is being denied access to the best loops by unaccountable Eurocrats, only interested in lining their own nests with money and blue-flavoured loops.
We all know that our politicians are like pigs at the trough, and now we know what it is that they are scoffing! Brothers and sisters it is time for action! We must march on Brussels and demand our rights, our liberty, and our little blue loops!
