It is now as dark as it will get here in Sweden. Until christmas is over, the actual time of light for a day only differs for a minute or two.
The sun is a hand’s width from the horizon at 12:00 PM. (That’s 7.5°, thanks heavens-above.com!) The light is yellowish, if there are no clouds. It rises at 8:40 and sets again at 2:49.
Dark? Dark.

How do the swedes not go crazy?
Ahahahahaahah! Ahahaha!!! Ahahahaahahaahahahah!!!!!

I mean of course, they have an incredible love for light. There is light and warm colours everywhere in their homes. Almost every window is lit with a small lamp at any evening in the year, but in christmas time, they go overboard.
Those little light triangles are really in every window, from your grandmother’s little red cottage to the car factories and skyscrapers. They get lit in the beginning of advent and are not removed until after christmas. And since they are either not turned off or, in these energy-conscious times, are on timers, they will be lighting you the way when you come home! It looks so nice and welcoming to come home to a warm light burning in the window. Brightens my winter mood every time!

I’m not dead yet

I haven’t been home for more than crashing to sleep in over two weeks now. Bentos will resume once I get my life back from work-related travel.

In the meanwhile, have a link to Free Rice, an amazing initiative to end both world hunger and secondary illiteracy.

See you later! *waves*

I’m getting really weird pingbacks on my latest post. They look like spamblogs, or really random link collections. Anybody know what they are and if they are a danger? (If so, how do I get rid of them?)

Mmm… Smoothies and muffins for breakfast.

…yes, I finally got a food processor. Luxury!

Proper post may be up later. Sorry about the lack of images – we’re having server problems over here.
