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.
Me and my mother went swimming before dinner. My friend still refused to swim, claiming "she did not even have a swim suit with her". I told her that in Sweden it is OK and not uncommon to go swimming naked, so no problem. She claimed that since she is not Swedish, that was not relevant.
