If an ad could convince me to go veggie, this is it


via buzzfeed.com Because I have a thing for maps. And nakedness. Seriously, though, the Swede and I have talked about various ways to dial back our meat consumption this year. And though I can’t see either one of us ever choosing to abandon our carnivorous ways completely,  we are both quite content to eat vegetarian …

Google’s got my number


Recently my stats-obsessed Swede noticed a bit of an uptick in the number of hits here at ShazzerSpeak and decided to dig a little deeper into the analytics. Turns out that the most common strings of search words pointing visitors to this blog over the past few days are “Patsy & Edina, London, Olympics” and …

A startling sign of aging

The Swede and I went to the Kallbadhus for an evening sauna and swim tonight.

Kallbadhus conflict…

Last Saturday morning was sunshiney and warm, just begging for us to get outside and enjoy it before the Swedish autumn sets in. To my surprise and delight, Dr. Darling, suggested we go to the kallbadhus (literally translated: cold bathhouse) for a sauna and a dip into the Öresund, followed by a leisurely lie-around in …

Godparent gig is exhausting for exhibitionists

Dr. Darling and I had the honor and privilege to become Godparents last Saturday afternoon, but our “official” responsibilities actually kicked in a bit earlier than that. My first assignment came mid-week when new Dad (AKA my favorite Alpha G33K) asked me to make ice for the “welcome drink.” All formal and semi-formal Swedish parties …
