vanity flair 2

i have been trying to revive my blogdrive (drive to update my blog, that is).

unfortunately, i always seem to be behind with work that all i can do when i get home is watch a movie (to clear my mind), drink (to manage my stress) or worse, work some more.

at any rate i decided i would update my blog by posting pics of myself (i'm not vain, really - i'm not) in stockholm where i am at the moment. that way i don't really have to think about what i am going to say.

after dinner & drinks at the theater

freezing my ass off in front of the royal palace

strutting my stuff in front of the stockholm international fairs and congress center, in the hope that the hot janitor would notice me (he didn't).

and finally, channeling my inner model by sitting on scandinavian furniture (realising too late that i cannot out stage those fixtures) at the swedish international development office

if you want to see pictures of stockholm without my eager mug blocking the way, scroll down and wait for the slide show to load.

but hey, winter came early in sweden. it so happened i cannot stay in the nordic countries for an extended period of time because the wet, drab and grey weather gets to me. so if this post blows, blame it on climate change.

i'm sorry but i will never find those kinds of furnitures comfortable -- ever. i'm glad you found a little time/drive for us.

hi. just visited your blog. i find it quite perky and interesting.

by the way, what gay lit stuff have you collected so far? maybe sometime we can borrow each other's books? ^_^

i don't have much anyway. hehe. but some i have are good. i'm planning my MA thesis to be abt contemporary gay lit but i still do not have a suitable framework. but of course, that's an overshare. haha. what i was meaning to say was, other materials may change my notion of "gay lit" and its contemporariness. that's it.

anyhow, i am adding you to my blog list and i hope to go over your blog again soon. tc.
