Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

I've been tagged!

I was tagged by Biba over at inspiration bubble with the "6 random things" tag.

Rules: Write 6 random things about myself, link the person who tagged you, post the rules. Tag six people and link them. Let them know they have been tagged.

So here we go:

1. I could eat sushi every day of the week for months on end without getting tired of it. And if you want to know where to get the best sushi in Stockholm, this is the place. I still haven't gotten over the fact that it's owned by the manager of the aquarium at the zoo though. I think that is hilarious!


2. I hate making phonecalls. I've tried both KBT and hypnosis, and even shock therapy (I started working at a phone directory enquiries company), but nothing works. I still hate it, and will go to great lenghts to avoid it. Not even a thousand dollars will get me to make a phonecall I don't want to make. (That last bit is actually true, tried and tested in reality.)

3. My christmas decorations are still up. I know, it's embarrasing. To my defence I have to tell you that it is only a few white and silver baubles hanging in a window and a paper star light. But still...

4. I love anything sweet! I eat a lot more sugary stuff than what is healthy. But as long as my teeth are fine and my weight is under 105 pounds I can't be bothered to change that habit. My metabolism is very fast, I get hungry again like an hour after I eat, every time. So I usually have two dinners every night, and then some snacks. And then I wake up so hungry I'm almost dizzy.

5. I have a guy with a beard and glasses. I heard it's the new "it" accessory. Although I think I might just keep him for a while even after the trend has passed.

6. I love car rides, but I don't have a license, and I don't like cars (they ruin the environment, are expensive to keep and break down all the time). I love the feeling of being able to go wherever you want, whenever, and the fact that you can stop anywhere! Like at a nice little fleamarket, a cow pen or a filthy roadside café.

Now that took quite some time coming up with all those things... I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little bit!

I'm going to tag six bloggers that I'm very curious about:

Danielle at The Style Files
Heather at Skinny LaMinx
Julie and Janet at Remodelista
Camilla Engman
Lori at Automatism
Tilda at Madame Hervé

    loved it! and so funny how alike we seem to be: i could eat sushi every day and have often thought about doing it - i took down my christmasdecorations yesterday - i like driving, but never do -and i hate, hate, hate making phonecalls! (i actually worked for a polling service once, but somehow its not the same as making calls for your self) Thank god for emails. Oh yeah and i loooove cake and chocolate and candy and, and, and... always have to have something sweet after dinner! i guess it only the last one that does not fit -even though my man actually is supposed to wear glasses!

    Haha, nice post!

    When I walk past a house that still has Christmas decorations, I think it's fun! It feels a cozy.

    And I too do NOT NOT NOT like phonecalls.

    I'm a long-time reader of your blog; I have a "Design" folder in my bookmarks, and you're there.

    I also hate phone calls, even though my business is computer tech support and I have to talk on the phone all the time. (E-mail has replaced a lot of the phone traffic, though.) I would rather drive across town and find that a shop is closed, than call them up and find their hours!
