I'm both orderly and rational. I value control, information, and order. I love structure and hierarchy, and will actively use whatever power or knowledge I have to maintain it. At best, I am lawful and insightful; at worst, I am bureaucratic and tyrannical.

* Grab the nearest book.

"En av dem hade för övrigt bedrivit långvarig handel i Ostinidien och kände förhålllanden där väl"

"One of them had, besides, for a long time traded in the East Indies and knew the conditions there well."

From "till Rikets Oboteliga Skade och deras Winning...Konflikten om Ostindiska Kompaniet 1730-1747.", meaning: "To uncurable damage to the realm and for their own gain...The conflict regarding the (swedish) East India Company 1730-1741" by Thomas Magnusson

And it's not really for me to judge if it's correct or not.

I think all who know me can agree that the headline is correct.

Take a picture of yourself right now.
Don't change your clothes. Don't fix your hair. Just take a picture.
Post that picture with no editing. (Except maybe to get the image size down to something reasonable. Don't go posting an eight megapixel image.)
Include these instructions.

Not only did I not fix my hair, I didn't wash my face or get dressed - this is the truth about how I look at 7 am after I've just had breakfast, but haven't done anything else yet.

See! )

Name three things that you have done that others on your f-list probably haven't
- See if anybody else responds with "I've done that." If they have, you need to add another! (2.b., 2.c., etc...)
- Have your friends cut & paste this into their journal to see what unique things they've done in their life.

1. Participated in non-violent civil disobedience actions in five different countries (there may be more, but they're the ones I can think of offhand).

2. Handled the Bocksten Bog man's costume.

3. Hitch-hiked around in Europe for a month - alone.

that I got from [livejournal.com profile] silverstah

1. Think of the first word that comes to mind when you think of me.

2. Go to Google Images and search for that word.

3. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results (don't tell me the word).

4. Put this in your own journal so that I can do the same.

In 2008, frualeydis resolves to...
Cut down on my sewing.
Overcome my secret fear of textile crafts.
Learn to play the grease.
Connect with my inner tolkien.
Keep my wicca clean.
Tell my family about socks.

Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

I'm not sure I will be able to cut down on the sewing. As for the other things: I do have a secret fear of textile crafts that I don't master, but I'll try to do something about it. And I will tell my family about socks, but what exactly? I think they know everything about socks already.

I got this from [livejournal.com profile] camele0pard. I realize it may be a lot of work for me, but I really, really want to hear her answer, so, here we go:

Post a comment and I shall:

1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something - a fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
7. Tell you the name of the fictional character that most reminds me of you.

In return, you must post this in your LJ...

Now I've answered at least 8 of these and can with good conscience put it in my own journal:

Costumers all tend to have a specific era or genre that appeals to us aesthetically, which is fine, but sometimes we get too focused and fail to appreciate other eras or genres that might suit our body type, our facial features, or even just challenge us to think outside the box a little bit. So, I'm opening the floor for suggestions: Give me one costume you'd want me to wear, and why. Picture links appreciated. :)

And then spread this meme like SARS and I'll try to do the same for you!

You were extremely active in what for me was the night to yesterday, with that meme [livejournal.com profile] sarahbellem invented. I was to much in pain and too busy yesterday to do anything about it, but I think I will try to answer it for people now, as many as I have the time for.

I asked [livejournal.com profile] edmndclotworthy to ask me five questions and here they and the answers are

1) Considering the global credit crisis, would you agree that this is a good time for IKEA to promote its mattresses as safe repositories for peoples savings?
That would depend on the mattresses of course, the rubber foam mattresses have very little space for money, stocks and value papers. The spring mattresses would work and if they made pockets inside them especially for valuables I think it would be a top-selling article.

2) What is your opinion of Sven Goran Eriksson’s coaching abilities?
I know very little of his current coaching style. He did however manage to get Lazio to win the Italian league and I think he did an okay job with the english national team; the problem being of course that the english expect their team to win all championships, despite the fact that the best players in the Premier League are foreigners. Personally I like his restrained, well-behaved style, but I am a little suspicious of coaches who wear suits and not track suits.

He did, however, have a decisive impact on swedish football and was very much the man behind "my" team, IFK Göteborg's, international success. What he did was to further develop the systematic football brought to Sweden by the young english coaches Bob Houghton and Roy Hodgson in the 1970s. This system with support and pressure on the ball-holder changed the way football was played in Europe. It was not only him of course, but that a swedish amateur team managed to win the UEFA cup twice left an impact. Unlike most teams in Sweden we still play with a "zone defense".

3) I’m always impressed by the quality of written and spoken English in your part of the world. Do your countrymen take a pride in that or is there an element of resentfulness at the linguistic laziness of the countries with English as their first language?
There is a myth in Sweden, recently made much fun of by satirists, that we are "so good at english". Berglin (one of the satirists) made a funny cartoon, showing a staircase with the different levels of english knowledge, when it comes to richness and depth, idiomatic usage etc, beginning with "pretty good", continuing with "good", "wrote his dissertation in english", "real anglophile" and then at the top "reasonably smart english 12 year old girl". We're not as good as we think we are. Listening to lectures in "swinglish", given for a swedish audience, is a painful experience.
But imperfect knowledge is of course better than none at all. The leading courtier and nobleman of the 17th century swedish court, Magnus Gabriel de la Gardie, said that "a person who knows only his own language is nothing more than an animal". While I do not agree with him I feel some pride in the fact that I can think and express myself fairly freely in another language than my own. I just wish my german was better.

4) Heard any good Norwegian jokes lately?
Nope. They are very rarely good. And not as fashionable as in my childhood. Possibly because of Norway becoming a strong economy and better than us at skiing.

5) Why did Volvos in the 1970s and 1980s always have their lights on?
I have no idea. But my husband told me that it was the standard to have the "half-lights" on, since you have to according to swedish law. So for us it was the problem that foreign cars didn't have them on and people not used to that forgot.

Now it is my turn. Comment and I will try to come up with questions.

I wonder how the fact that I'm writing in a foreign language affects the results.
