Well I haven't exactly been blogging lately.
I have been busy with my mother in the hosptial and trying to sort through a few things back here in the USA.
I kind of have to laugh when something happens like today...I go to the mall to get a card for wireless internet for my laptop....While waiting, a girl walks in the store and the alarm goes off. One of the guys who works there says pretty loudly.."Stop and get down on the floor!! What did you steal????!!!"
Then he laughs and tells her he is just joking, she just walked in the door. I KNOW for certain that will never happen back in Sweden. I can't just get over how different it is here between the two countries. When the guy who intalls the stuff on my laptop looks at the keyboard he says 'Whats all these extra buttons for?" I told him I bought it in Sweden and they are vowels we don't have in english... then he proceeds to ask me to pronounce them...come on now.
I felt...overwhelmed by the difference. I guess I am still having a culture shock even though I have been here a week and a half. They just don't come out and say stuff there like they do here in the US...I'll get over it I guess.
