You can never hide from the NYT

The NYT personalized recommendations for me: all obits and upsetting news about Maus being removed from Russian bookstores because yes, it features swastikas.

Saw a seeing dog wearing a sign today

Saw a seeing dog wearing a sign today stating "Don't pet me, I'm working".

That was then

Me and my brother a while ago.

The Style Project continued

Been wearing boots a whole lot more. 
They hurt and limit my mobility. 
But they look good.

What I've seen lately

It's not set in stone. Oh wait a second

I love this, warts and all. Can you read the text?

It says: 

Hezarfen Ahmet Celebi
A legendary Turkish aviator who had achieved to flew with a glider made of feathers from Europe to Asia (over the Bosphoros/Istanbul) in 1632.

New favorite workplace

Poets' house! 
Hoping all the magic of poetry will just seep into my pores like some kind of literary osmosis. 

Ps. Åsa det här är nära dig va? Ses gärna här! Eller på ställe där man kan prata också!

New pics

Joel is so happy at his new school. 
This is the playground. 
This is Joel and his friend Wylie. 
And yes, they have matching Vans.

Today's confessions

1. I can't tell the Duggars apart. They all look the same and all seem to be pregnant always. I know it's not a big deal but if there's one thing I've always mastered it's pop culture and if it's in People, it counts to me as pop culture. Am I going senile prematurely? Am worried.

Can easily tell Kardashian family members apart, even Kylie from Kylie after those new full lips.

2. I feel I've been on a failed diet since I was 14. Not always trying to lose weight, just constantly knowing I ate the wrong thing somehow.

3. Suddenly feel I have no thoughts, ideas or experiences. Should I really be doing work as a writer? If not, what are my alternatives? Who would hire me now and here?

4. Contemplating taking up running again.

Good family movie

Not sure about you, but at our house it often takes as long time agreeing on a movie as it does actually watching it. But the other day we settled for this and all five of us were happy with the choice.
