Dr. Darling and I are headed to the city where we met in-person for the first time around this time of year back in 2000. It’s an anniversary that we tend to space, but this time we actually have tickets to see Dawn French‘s one-woman show “30 Million Minutes” … which is kind of special since …

A decade of “Dr. Darling”

Dr. Darling: Honey, it’s my anniversary. Shazz (frantically searching mental memory bank): It is? Oh, you mean since you defended your thesis and got your PhD? Dr. Darling: Yes, it was 10 years ago today that I became a “doctor.” Though a lot of good it’s done me. Shazz: You’ve been my favorite doctor ever …

It feels like I have a lot of things I could be blogging about right now, but not enough time to actually do the writing that is required. Which is one of the many reasons why I love Twitter so much. It’s 140 characters … that’s it. And I can ALWAYS find time for 140 characters. …

Before long my radio pal Claes Gylling very kindly retweeted me with the following addition: For those who don’t …

On the verge of Viking puberty

Best re-tweet ever!

Today marks the 11th anniversary of my move Sweden, which basically puts me on the verge of Viking puberty. It’s also the start of what is essentially just over two-week’s worth of celebratory events for Dr. Darling and myself.  June 20th is the date that the Swede and I have always celebrated as the beginning of …

Today marks the 10th anniversary of my move from the midwestern United States to Sweden, and when I happened to casually mentioned this to my work colleagues yesterday afternoon, they thought it sounded like an excellent occasion for cake, which I took to mean that they’re glad I came.  😀 So I baked an American-style …

Thank you, Post Denmark.

Shazzer: Honey, you know what Sunday is, right? Dr. Darling: Yes, it’s the 8th anniversary of your move to Sweden. Shazz: It’s OUR 8th anniversary, Sweetie. Which means we survived the seven-year-itch. Dr. Darling: The seven-year-itch? Shazzer: The 7th year is supposedly the most difficult one of a long-term, co-habitant relationship, after the first one. …
