What did you think, that I have forgotten about my new quest to find out more about which groups are working together to fight racism in Sweden?
No way, MAN!!
Today I started my journey. I have decided to start with the organization Quick Response.
This organization examines how the media covers issues like immigration, integration and xenophobia ..its a great start!

The reality is I have waiting for HM to sell my beloved skirt. I only found the long black sun dresses there but not the actual skirt so today was the day to hunt for one. Well, I knew that HM had them in their stores because they recently sent out their newest catalogue and I found it in the LOGG section. When I went into the store I was dismayed by the fact that the skirt was like 9 inches too long. It was literally hanging on a hanger that was taller then I am and it fell all the way to the floor. I was heartbroken. At least HM could offer a petite section because not all Swedes are 7 feet tall. Right?? Anyway, my good friend Anna suggested we go and try Indiska whose clothes I have loved forever but find that they can be a bit too tribal looking on me. Other brands I love but can't wear are Gundrun Sjöden and Odd Molly...it just doesn't work. Anyway, we went to Indiska and I found my skirt and I tried it on because there is always the risk of looking like a mermaid but the cut was perfect and now I own a long black shirt. I have come home and have put it on!! I am happy!
|Sample of Gundrun Sjöden!! I love the clothes but its too much for me. I can't pull it off!|
|Picture of the HM long black skirt that I wanted!! TOO LONG!|
|I love ODD Molly as well and I love this dress and the color but it would be a complete mess on me!! Eller??|

Anyway, wanted to post these pictures of Mable who has overnight become my little "big girl". I made lamb stew the other night. I wouldn't say that Mable is a finnicky eater but she absolutely refused to eat it. It was delicious by the way...
Fine....Pierre said that he would make Mable a fruit salad but instead of saying just ok, she offered to make it herself....Check it out!

I have an interview next week.
Am I excited?
I can't help but think its just another chance to exploit the Kee Kee. I'll be excited when I sign the paperwork. This will be my third internship, I hope something materializes...in the meantime I am working on my contingency plan. Oh yes....another degree.
Logistisk och Marknadsföring...Logistics and Marketing
God help me!
Don't tell Pierre.

The first time I watched this commercial was one year ago, during a visit to Malmö, I was sitting on the couch talking to my sister-in-law about gardening. Then this commerical came on. How many commercials are powerful enough that you never forget the first time you see them?
