My mother found a credit card on the street today.

It belonged to a man named Christian Frick.  We all thought that was funny but couldn’t really explain why.  Well I could, but that would get redundant.

That takes the list of valuable things found on the streets of Stockholm to:

– 20 SEK (3 dollars)

-200 SEK (30 dollars)

-4000 SEK (600 dollars) : but this was lost by my brother, so I don’t know if it belongs on this list…

-one credit card

-one unopened/intact wedge of Parmesan cheese

-500 million unpaired gloves (during winter)


I know I shamelessly promote the blog 1000 Awesome Things, and today I’m going to take it a step further by including one number 948 on their list; The Man Couch.  Here is the description:

The Man Couch is any couch conveniently located near the changerooms in a women’s clothing store.

You can tell which one’s The Man Couch, because it’s generally covered in man. Most are either text-messaging, napping illegally, or staring straight ahead, jaws dropped, pupils dilated, and completely zoned out, their arms full of purses and plastic bags from other stores.

Now, The Man Couch really is good for everybody:

For women, it gives them a convenient place to find their male shopping companion. There they are, right outside the change room! This is much better than having to track them down in the magazine section of Borders or in the EB Games by the food court, for instance. Also, it’s great knowing your purse is safe and there’s an opinion available if you want it.

I have to agree that the man couch is awesome.  And I must say that 1000 Awesome Things is a refreshingly positive read. It also has awesome everyday things, like number 957: The Telephone.

What’s this? I can talk into a clump of plastic and wires over here and you can hear me from the other side of the planet a millisecond later?


This video is beautiful.  I love this song and I love Broadway and I miss being on stage.  That is all.
