Sushi is the gay marriage of food?

When I first saw this video of social psychologist Jonathan Haidt comparing the growing acceptance of gay marriage to sushi, I thought the comparison was too clever by half. But now that it’s been marinating in my head for a couple of days, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s a completely brilliant analogy. Taking …

“Sushi Night” from the spicy tuna roll’s perspective

I don’t know why I find this video so charming, maybe because it captures a place and a vibe so vividly. A guy takes his iPhone, hits record on the video camera and places it on the sushi conveyor belt at a popular Tel Aviv sushi bar. So simple, and so perfect. It makes me …

Great weather for ducks continues…

Okay now it's just getting ridiculous.  Not to mention dangerous. There is so much flooding in our part of southern Sweden that transportation is now being impacted.  My boss never even made it into the office today due to standing water on the main north-south motorway.  After sitting in a massive traffic jam for close …

We so totally SUCK at anniversaries…

It was five years ago today that I made the move to Sweden and  Dr. Darling and I consider June 20th to be a landmark date in our relationship.  It’s the closest thing we have to a traditional wedding anniversary really, so we try to celebrate…when we can remember it. Unfortunately I didn’t remember it in time to keep …
