@sweden Oct. 22, 2017, 6:44 p.m.

For ppl playing Don't Starve: imagine playing DST w/ a 6yo demanding to be fed, randomly looting your supplies AND setting fire to beefalos.

@sweden Oct. 22, 2017, 6:37 p.m.

Tried baking bread with lentils in it today. Very curious how this will end up. https://t.co/CjfPbPntp1

@sweden Oct. 22, 2017, 4:50 p.m.

@1azylizzie might be a bit old swedish in there though. But otherwise they are really nice. I loved them as a kid and still read them.

@sweden Oct. 22, 2017, 4:48 p.m.

@1azylizzie It really does! A book tip for you: Kulla Gulla. It is set in the same time as the Emigrants but easier bc it is a kids series.

@sweden Oct. 22, 2017, 4:28 p.m.

Watched Astrid Lindgren with the kid, went to the swimming hall (what is the actual english term for that?), baked bread and drunk coffee.

@sweden Oct. 22, 2017, 4:27 p.m.

Some of my best reading experiences lately: Handmaid's Tale, Fangirl, everything @sara_lovestam writes.

Books and reading is part of a context. Depending on where I am at different books fit more or less good.

@sweden Oct. 22, 2017, 12:16 p.m.

I have a hard time naming my favourite book. I confess Harry Potter is quite an important book to me. But that is not exactly the same.

@sweden Oct. 22, 2017, 12:14 p.m.

So, let us talk books. I love to read. If I say I love three things: YA, queer characters and dystopian themes - which books would you rec?

@sweden Oct. 21, 2017, 7:38 p.m.

A common set up is that as a blocker you play every other jam. Today I played four in a row, rested one, played four more. Etc.

As a parent my responsibility is to give my kid tools and context so he can learn and grow. That means to teach him about rights and ideals.

@sweden Oct. 19, 2017, 2:08 p.m.

One of the hardest things is the balance between letting your kids make their own choices and the fact that kids don't get consequence.

@sweden Oct. 19, 2017, 1:54 p.m.

I totes agree that it is important to give kids tools to find their own ways, make up their own minds etc. But this is also an ideal.

@sweden Oct. 19, 2017, 1:53 p.m.

Whatever word you put on it, politics/ideology/ideals my point is the same - neutral upbringing is not a thing you will accomplish.

@sweden Oct. 19, 2017, 1:35 p.m.

Raising kids to follow the norms is also ideological. The difference is that it is not as often an active choice as when you break norms.

@sweden Oct. 19, 2017, 1:32 p.m.

There is no such thing as a neutral upbringing. I as a parents and every other adult around my kid will both show and tell our ideals.

If you like Indian food the place called Holy Cow have a vegan ch*cken tikka masala that almost makes me cry of happiness.

@sweden Oct. 18, 2017, 6:51 p.m.

@tenzochris IF I DID? Oh yes. It was pure epicness! European derby is really showing the world what we are made of.

@sweden Oct. 18, 2017, 6:50 p.m.

After the competition I had one more semla, just to enjoy, the other ones I ate so fast I barely registered the taste.

@sweden Oct. 18, 2017, 5 p.m.

Fun fact about me: entered a semla-eating-competition once in high school. Was seconds away from going to the final round.

@sweden Oct. 18, 2017, 4:48 p.m.

@dutchwhisky please ask her for a semla for new years!!

@sweden Oct. 18, 2017, 4:43 p.m.

A semla is a cardamom bun with an almond paste filling and whipped cream. It is FUDGING DELISH! https://t.co/0Rc6oSFeAL

@sweden Oct. 18, 2017, 4:41 p.m.

During early spring mostly, but anytime you please if you ask me, Swedes worship (ie eat) the almighty semla! https://t.co/0d8Yma5eW7

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 6:07 p.m.

@fmfdlr I just put vaseline on my face and then add glitter. Use making tape to make the edges if I want them sharp.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:56 p.m.

Also I love roller derby because of all the glitter! https://t.co/md7i64PK46

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:48 p.m.

And yes at said after parties we do the other kind of hitting on our opponents. Might get physical, but it is consentual!

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:46 p.m.

Other sport's supporters are directed to different subways, to avoid fights. Meanwhile we are directed to the joint after party.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:44 p.m.

I can love and support my team without having to bash others in any way. We are one community.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:41 p.m.

Even when roller derby is played on the highest level you see skaters high five each other on the track for doing awesome things.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:40 p.m.

I also love roller derby because it does not ever condition me to hate another team. There are no enemies in derby, only frenemies.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:39 p.m.

I love how roller derby challenge the norms about who does rough sports and how.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:38 p.m.

For many people roller derby is a safe space that is life changing and so very important.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:37 p.m.

In roller derby the women and trans people define the context. It is on our terms from the beginning to the end.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:36 p.m.

@jdhovland I play flat track but these things are as far as I know the same in bort.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:34 p.m.

Roller derby is different because it is a sport where the man is not the norm, but it is still hard and rough.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:32 p.m.

Roller derby is a full contact sport on quad skates. It is a sport organized by the skaters for the skaters. It is fierce and awesome!

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:31 p.m.

@martinjcowling @psu_chris @BitterHittan who said it first is not the same as what is the reference for my specific tattoo.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 1:51 p.m.

@psu_chris @BitterHittan that is a reference, not mine tho.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 1:50 p.m.

And yes I have a HUGE crush on Seven! https://t.co/58HdNjDRkJ

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 1:49 p.m.

Fun facts: have considered the following derby names "Blocking is Futile", "Q" and "We Are Borg". And 7 or 79 as my player number.

"Where your treasure is there will your heart be also" - gold star to the first person to get the reference! @psu_chris @BitterHittan

@simsod I have lost count of the times I have rewatched Voyager... But agree, don't always love Neelix.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 1:35 p.m.

Wow you guys really like that Picard person. Who could have guessed...? Unfortunately for you my poll is showing good numbers for Janeway.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 1:31 p.m.

@herr_skoog I love everything about this tweet!!

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 1:22 p.m.

@srntyvalley yes he is also a strong contender but no.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 1:21 p.m.

.@waterconflict that always so tiresome and irrelevant focus on womens looks.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 1:19 p.m.

@PatrikBatAAr the only acceptable reaction!

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 1:17 p.m.

Super important question no.2: which Star Trek captain is the best?

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 1:10 p.m.

So guys, SUPER IMPORTANT QUESTION THINGY: Have y'all seen Star Trek Discovery? 😎🖖💃

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 11:50 a.m.

@janewilkinson59 genious! Browsing people's book shelves are the first thing I do when I visit someone.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 11:43 a.m.

When I don't sparkle, do derby or talk to my plants I am the Secretary General at Hard of Hearing Young People Sweden (@uh_se ).

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 11:31 a.m.

Don't I have a job to go to you wonder? I do but since I worked the entire weekend today is my off day. https://t.co/3Tdtd2l8dO

I do how ever have both a girl friend and a six yo kid. They are cuddly as cats and almost as cute! https://t.co/sXdC8qp9Ru

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 11:20 a.m.

Relevant question! The surprising answer is that I have no cats, actually. https://t.co/6v3MBB6wPQ

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 11:12 a.m.

My plan for today is to vaccuum and catch up on doing dishes. Thus far this tweeting bizniz gets 10/10 for distracting me.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 11:08 a.m.

@kain_wyatt they are very much intact!

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 10:32 a.m.

People usually think this. Truth is I don't. I just have the strategy to choose easy plants that does not die on me. https://t.co/qMJ5ST23uz

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 10:30 a.m.

@missgaijin it is very easy, just open the bulb-thingy and get the seed out and plant it.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 10:29 a.m.

@kain_wyatt yes this is why I started to grow the plants in the ceiling...

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 10:24 a.m.

FYI my plant strategy: when the windows and walls got crowded: start using the ceiling. And the lamp. https://t.co/IHdbEhZ9SM

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 10:22 a.m.

@missgaijin TY! Though that is actually a mango (they look very alike), but I have an avocado plant just outside of the picture.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 10:17 a.m.

First order of business today is to water the plants. This might take a while since I have almost a hundred plants… https://t.co/eGB50dQGtH
