Of course it was all started by my amazing procrastination ability. Instead of studying something useful (ie Swedish or Public Health) I was browsing my way down the list of 50 most powerful blogs in the world, http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2008/mar/09/blogs
, when I was caught by Chocolate and Zucchini, http://chocolateandzucchini.com/
, who has just posted the most wonderful article on her recent visit to WA (the state of Western Australia for those who were wondering). Her magical descriptions of the local food and wine have resulted in total brain-block (hmm, how many words can I make up today) as I'm overwhelmed by memories of food and wine from Oz. As I currently have 70 minutes before I'm due at SFI I can thus guarantee that no study will be happening today.
Ultimate procastination = wireless internet + discovering the wonderful world of quality blogs.
Yes I know I'm only about 10 years behind most people but I've finally discovered that there is interesting stuff to read on the web that isn't a digitalised version of an old media publication. It does make me wonder though when the august Observer Newspaper decides that my favourite blog, The Fat Cyclist http://www.fatcyclist.com/
, is not one of the fifty most powerful blogs in the world. The next thing you know they won't include mine on that list. Oh shit, they haven't.
Isn't it strange that the wonderfully interconnected nature of life today means that I read something written by a Parisian about Australia that makes me feel homesick while sitting here in Sweden. There's an interesting research topic for someone with more time than sense.
Anyway I'm going to wallow in this semi-pleasant feeling of homesickness for a while so any incoherent dawdling about my mountain biking around the local environs will have to wait until another time.
I was going to write something about my recent mountain biking here in Norrköping but have decided to wallow in a rare attack of homesickness, and invite you all in.
