On My Mind Right Now

  • My landscape students in Växjö did extremely well on the exam: 79% passed with distinction. And they were extremely kind in their evaluation of the course, which took place before the exam.

  • I’ve been put in charge of an on-line course in upplevelseproduktion, tourist site production, and so will spend the entire academic year of ’12/13 as an employee of the Linnæus University at 20-25% of full time. Yay!
  • My buddy Martin is sending me the manuscript of his new novel for test reading.
  • Fornvännen’s autumn issue just came from the printers with a lot of good stuff, and we’re handing the winter issue to the graphic designer next week. Same with Folkvett. Fornvännen’s spring issue for 2012 will soon appear on-line.
  • I’m a guest rogue, gästkanalje, on the next episode of the Kvack podcast.
  • Helping my mom getting the boat out of the water tomorrow at her summer house.
  • Jan Apel very kindly gave me his flint dagger database and I have identified five or six daggers that were deposited in lakes during the Early Bronze Age in my study area.
  • Christina Fredengren and I have decided to publish our studies of Bronze Age deposition in a co-written book.
  • I’ve received 10 kg of elk meat from Stensjö as an employment benefit from the Royal Academy of Letters. I’m also buying a free-range lamb from Borg, another of the Academy’s properties.

What’s on your mind right now, Dear Reader?

    Regarding the meat, what Swedes call elk, Americans and Canadians call moose. In fact, I found a photo of a drunk moose that gotten stuck in an apple tree near Gothenburg. Perhaps she had been celebrating moose name day.

    *I am moving to a larger flat in the same housing association.
    *The summer returned here in southern Scania with two days with temperature between 18-20 C.
    *These months coming up with less daylight than night. It is a horrible time of the year.
    *I have some prepared spots for amateur field observations of archeology here in Scania as soon as the soil freeze
