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.
On my way home from our magic bar, I passed by three young women who wore high heels that made it hard to walk in the thick snow and on the slippery ice. One of them had a bag with Swedish text on it, so I asked if I could take photo of it. They were very surprised at first, but said photographing the bag would be fine. They also asked what the Swedish means. It is a bit weird, but it would roughly translate to: "Today's homework are you alone [or lonely]?"
