  • Cub Scouts in Stockholm

    A Swedish American in Sweden

    20 Nov 2014 | 3:37 pm
    I am a failed Boy Scout. That’s not true, I never actually made it to the Boy Scouts. I quit after Webelos. It was a good run. A run filled with plenty of Cub Scout meetings. Aside from the Pinewood Derby, I remember three things: our den leader nearly burning down his garage, learning to change a flat tire, and playing Nightmare on Sesame Street with a child-sized play set.There are probably several things you think I should remember from those days. Like how to read a map. Or a compass. How to build a fire. Maybe how to tie several different knots. Survival skills.I don’t remember those…
  • Did a cave Troll live here?

    Photos From Haninge
    21 Nov 2014 | 1:46 am
    If you had the strength to remove this big rock you would enter a Troll's home. The troll was sometimes big, and often mistaken for a giant. Other troll's looked very much like us humans. They were very strong, and good with magic, hence their name. They were rich and kept all their possessions in their homes, so if we could somehow remove this big rock we would be home free. Either that or this is just an erratic moved here by the ice during last ice age, Weichsel, that started some 115 000 years ago and ended 90 000 years later, give or take. In any case you will find the big rock that has…

Hah!For the past few months, I’ve been living through a strange combination of being free and yet being somehow very busy. Being free from work is definitely underrated! People should try it more often if they can. In the first month of joblessness I felt the immense freedom of nobody telling me what to do with my day. No more waking up thinking of the day’s work tasks! – at least for an undetermined amount of time. I…

But certainly, sooner or later, some of the feelings and memories connected to that moment might feel less concrete after a while. So I write in a way that travelers write about their travels: because I want to be able to look back…

That being said, the phrase “Horsemeat. Beautiful horsemeat.” will apparently catch my attention in Swedish.

    Mmmmm! Hallå mina vänner! I had thought I was done with my series on demonstrative pronouns in Swedish, but I noticed a comment at the last minute with a great question that I decided deserved a full post. You might notice when listening to Swedish that when a person is presenting something new, they will use det här, even if what they are presenting is of common gender (“n-gender”), in constructions such as this: Det här är en hund. − This is a dog. Det här is the neuter gender (“t-gender”) form of den här, which means “this”. (More about den här…

I mess them up in Swedish and English. And I’ve been speaking both of those languages for a lot of years. A lot of teachers might cringe at what I’m about to write because some people believe you should avoid saying that things you’re teaching are difficult, but there’s no point in lying: prepositions are hard and they never seem to have any rules. Of course, that’s not entirely true. The rule part at…

If you recall from Part 1, the first way I taught you how to say “this” was den här. Den här is used for common or “n-gender” nouns. Det här is used for neuter or “t-gender” nouns, and de här is used for all plural nouns, regardless of gender. To say “that”, you basically just take each of these forms and replace här with där. So, for common gender…

As I explained in part one, when den här is used before a noun, the noun has to be put in definite form: den här stolen – this chair In other words, to say *den här stol would be incorrect. However, you also have the option of using denna to mean “this”. Unlike den här, denna does not require the noun to be in definite form. In fact, it generally isn’t used with the noun in definite form…

All very delicious and I can't wait to visit more…
