Born in Stockholm (Sweden), now live in Sapporo (Japan). Hold a Ph.D. in computer science and work with computers during the days, perform magic in a bar during the nights (and weekends, for kids). Also used to teach historical fencing back in Sweden.
When buying fruit juice on my way home, all the juice came with straps for your cell phone that are supposed to look like singers from the weird group AKB48 (why would you need more than fifty members in a group, where no one even plays an instrument!?!) dressed up to look like vegetables. Great.
My friend says she usually pulls of the free gift and then goes to buy it without that crap when things like this happens, haha.
