Swedish TV programming be damned

With any luck, this will solve a problem that has plagued my TV-watching experience ever since I moved to Sweden almost 13 years ago. For reasons I have never understood, the people who set the TV programming schedules in this country have an infuriating habit of randomly changing the times and days when shows air, making it …

Stalking Sophie’s neighbor Saga


One of the nicest things about Coach Bad-@$$ AKA my friend Sophie (and there are MANY to choose from) is that she is tuned-in to other stuff about me besides my fitness quest and her power to torture me with Burpees, military push-ups and interminable planks.(And whatever else she comes up with …stay tuned.)

We also enjoyed Blue Planet, …

Swedish state television FAIL

It feels like the entire country is moving a little slowly today. I suspect it's because large parts of Sweden are still nursing a hangover from the nationwide party that was the Royal Wedding Weekend. What's that you say, American and European readers? You didn't see any news coverage of the most significant internationally newsworthy …
