quick takes

As always, visit Jen for others.

The semlor buns for Fat Tuesday were yummy. Not quite what I was expecting. It just made me want a frosting filled (and frosted.. goes without saying) donut.

Then in the evening of fattisdag I thought I'd celebrate my baking up one (giant) chocolate chip cookie.

I should start making more things in single or double serving sizes. I am getting somewhat bored of eating the same meal four nights in a row. Then again, I also haven't been too thrilled about cooking lately, so that saves some trouble there.

I spent my first Valentine's day as a married woman listening to The Greatest Love Songs of All Time playlist on Spotify while drinking a glass of the boxed wine that has been hanging around since Christmas. Does boxed wine ever go bad?

Sidenote: The playlist did include Unchained Melody. So fear not. The playlist name was warranted.

Low on content this week. Makes for really quick Quick Takes. My phone buzzed earlier, as though to tell me I got a text. It was pretty confusing. I think only five people have my number. One is my boss who has an office next door. Another is the person I share an office with who was sitting right next to me. Turns out, it was a message from the service provider. In Swedish. I imagine it was some sort of sweet deal, but I don't know for sure, and I'm not going to bother to figure it out.

Here is a photo gallery from a Swedish photographer. I found out about him because I finally purchased some stamps and he was on one of them. I really really hope they were the right stamps.

(as though I was being timed and just won. thank you very much.)
