What Really Turns Women On?

The people at the Cambridge Women's Phornography Cooperative has dedicated their careers to answering this question. Their findings has resultet in the book "Porn For Women". The results presented in this material is claimed to be all scientifically compiled. "We had actual women of all ages, shapes, sizes, and political bents come to our laboratories and view images. We had sensors, heart rate monitors, and all kinds of bio feedback devices." I am in no doubt what concerns the credibility of those findings; who doesn’t get excited about the thought of a partner taking equal responsibilities around the house?

I have just consulted the Swedish bureau of statistics and found that women still, in Sweden the country of equal opportunities, does double the amount of household work compared to men. What is most unequally divided apparently is the laundrywork.

Having free time is definately a turn on.

The Kings Wallet

This note was sitting on our front door when I came home from work today. Apparently it is a note from my eldest to his dad telling him that the wallet that he thought was in the dads house, and that the dad was supposed to bring, actually was at my house. Never mind the story behind it; I am just thinking is that a very wise thing to write on ones front door?!

Not a lot of People Know This

Shortly before Vladimir Lenin made his way back to Petrograd for the October Revolution, he stopped of at a Stockholm department store (PUB) and bought an overcoat at 17skr.

This was my 1st of May blog.

Back to Blogging or I need to Spend More Time on the Internet or simply A Tribute to the Internet

I have not blogged for a month and a half. Seems I have spent almost all my time on work related things. All what I have done in this field is worthwhile though, as it is preparations and planning that will save me time later. Among other things I have prepared a project on the Middle Ages, with which my students are now busy. Each students is building up a story around a made up individual living in those days. It will end up a story of fiction with intertwined facts on organisation of society, clothes, food, customs etc. They have chosen from a list of positions people would have in those days such as: pheasant, outlaw, jester, squire, noble man/woman, courtier, monk, nun, minstrel, castle worker, philosopher, knight, king, queen, hunter, archer. A main aim of this project is for the students to get a feeling for the feudal system and the life situations of the people within it. I am very much looking forward to reading their works, which they incidentally have taken to with great entusiasm. They write in English, and this project aims at curriculum goals for both English and History.

However much I love my job, I love the internet even more; and from now on I need to get back to be my usual internet active self, i.e.:

- discover new music through Aquarium Drunkard, Geez Back Ma Heid!, Pitchfork, Oceans Never Listens, Runout Groove

- blog more often and read other peoples blogs such as boingboing,
Cynical-C Blog, Indexed, kung fu grippe, rands in repose, Why That’s Delightful!

- discover new words at wordsmith and worldwidewords , and add words on Wordie

- read more lists (Merlin’s Lists of Five Things, Skippy’s List)

- keep track of all the fails

- send more Cards

- watch more videos like this and this

- read more comics (Wondermark, Questionable Content, Over-Compensating, The Perry Bible and more)

- ask more questions

- look at more bird pictures

- look at clever design

- keep track of links with

- meddle with my muxtape

- get lost in Wikipedia

and lots, lots more…

Finally! This is my time travel device for going back in time with my students. It doesn't take too many generations and we are back in The Middle Ages.
