This week

I read

And other then that I basically enjoyed my vacation. I spent hours wandering around Oslo with a novel, going from park bench to park bench and watching my skin go from ghostly white to pale beige (which is all that is going to happen to it this summer, as usual). I dropped by friends' workplaces and kept them from doing stuff. I had a party, and before doing that I tried on everything I own and made pesto things using a champagne bottle as a rolling pin.

And I took a trip to Amsterdam. I was going to blog about the coffee places (and by that I mean the places that actually serve coffee), but based on what I really did there, a guide to the shopping districts would be better, paying special attention to shoe stores and lingerie shops. However, if you want to read about shoes and lingerie, I suggest you go here and here. Meanwhile, the weather is so nice and this is my last day off before I have to wear wool and cook over an open fire.

This week

I read

I watched

This week (May 31st to be exact) was also the first annual "Take Your Friend to Work Day" or if you want "Show Up Randomly at Your Friend's Work and Stop Them From Doing Anything Productive Day" or "Go to a Party and Eat Expensive Food Paid for by a Company You Technically Don't Work For Anymore Day". It was my first real day off in ages, and I felt the need to rub it in.*

Yes, this week's This Week is early. The reasons for this are as follows:

*Take Your Daughters (and sons and dogs) to Work Day is already a tradition, so why not one of these?
