Five Things.

Oh well. It has finally hit me, as I knew it would sooner or later. Charles O Nutter managed to nail me.

If you don't know what this is, it's called the "5 Things Meme" and it means I'll tell you 5 things about me that you probably don't know, and then pass the baton on to 5 other people. We'll see about that.
  • I am an "academic failure" in that I haven't even finished the Swedish equivalent to High School (in Swedish it's Gymnasium). There is no thing about computers I have learned in school. And even though I have no education, I actually work centrally at Karolinska Institutet, which is one of the more esteemed universities in Sweden.
  • I am an amateur musician. I play guitar, some piano, sing quite a lot and play a few other instruments (but not very good). I create some music, but nothing that has been finished enough to make public. Until recently I was a singer in a Swedish barbershop chorus called the Entertainmen. We came 14:th on the World Barbershop Competition in Salt Lake City 2 years ago. I used to sing Lead, but switched to Bari.
  • I train martial arts. I have been doing so for most of my life, but not with enough regularity to attain a black belt yet. What I've been training for the last few years is called Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, and it seems I will stay with it.
  • I am a vegetarian, and has been for the past 10 years. I don't eat meat, fowl or fish, but I do eat egg and dairy products.
  • I live in a former mental hospital, in a beautiful park 20 minutes from central Stockholm. The hospital was built 1908 and looks very much like a castle.
So. Now I've done my share. What's left is to give this burden to someone else. Since I don't like the concept of chain *anything* I will introduce a small twist by tagging 5 people who probably won't do it, for several reasons. But if they do it, it will be all the more interesting. So, without further ado:

Understanding that English is a second language, here's a small correction.


The other one is just odd...

Hehe, thanks. Yeah, that would be an odd one, that's true.

Did you make it to Salt Lake City in 2006? I ended up milling around with about a gazillion barbershop quartets there last year on my way to my car (when I drive to work (once a month or so), I park beneath the building where the championships were being held).

Hooray for vegetarian programmers! Although it's better to eat a diary than dairy.
