A foxy blog about my scandalous adventures in grad school in Uppsala, Sweden. I think about history things a lot. I like to sleep, drink coffee, and I listen to terrible pop music, namely Turbo Folk and the music of the Eurovision song contest! I like to complain a lot. I commonly blog about Swedish/Uppsala things, Canadian/Edmonton things, Sherlock BBC things, Detroit Red Wings things, and whatever I feel like. My feels live here. My body is 50% whine, 50% wine. Deal with it.

I like this trend. I hereby decree that all maps be replaced with this highly intuitive system.

I always forget how much work I get done by actually getting to work by 9 a.m. Even if most of the work I have done is just sending emails, I read through my dumb book review and sent it. Now for some serious dissertation time because I fucking forgot that there are even MORE holidays coming and I need to send this by fucking May 5. WTF.

Queen Victoria’s Diary - Friday 20th April 1894
 ‘A dull morning. — Breakfasted alone with Beatrice. — Soon after Ella came in, much agitated, to say that Alicky & Nicky were engaged, & begging they might come in. I was quite thunderstruck, as though I knew, Nicky much wished it, I thought Alicky was not sure of her mind. Saw them both. Alicky had tears in her eyes, but looked very bright & I kissed them both. Nicky said 'she is much too good for me'. I told him he must make the religious difficulties, as easy as he could for her, which he promised to do.’
