I'm gonna go buy pants today. and real food too! Not a kebab, not a lentil, not shitty sushi. Real food. With MEAT that comes from an ANIMAL that I've heard of!
been working really hard on coursework all semester. Totally dropped the ball this week. Gotta get my shit back in gear, final papers are due in a month and a half, and I'm going to be busy as shit in that time. Guess I know what I'm doing tomorrow.
Thinking I'm going to treat myself to some pants this weekend. Gonna get a pair of cheap mondays and wax them when I get back to reykjavik. can't decide between khaki slim fit chinos, maroon denim, or raw indigo. should be fun deciding.
yeah... I dunno what it is about Jensen but I have never wanted to eat there.. just a vague sense of wrong. Kulturhuset looks nice, when I'm rich I'll try it out ;)
 I've actually yet to set foot in a sushi place here that's not run by Chinese people...  Yeah, it's not that good. I miss the stuff in Iceland. Granted that's not made by Japanese people either, but it's a hell of a lot better (amazing fish). Dude, Amager. We have three kinds of food: Overpriced Indo-Pakistani that isn't good, "Italian Pizza" that's always run by a Syrian guy and sells mostly kebab and falafel, and "asian" which is always something called "Running Sushi"...
I know. I speak (at least I still understand) Mandarin. The rest of the conversation was what made it insulting. Not gonna dwell on it though. I'll go to the other sushi joint across the street, they're much friendlier.
Not racist (well, probably not enough to be worthy of note). I just resent being called a nasty term for foreigner by someone who has had more time to integrate but hasn't even tried, in a country neither of us is from. I mean shit buddy, I speak their language, the local language, and an international language, and they're making fun of me?
I don't really care that they were talking shit about me in a language that they don't understand, but it does annoy me that the Chinese who run my local sushi place called me waiguoren when I ordered in Danish and they speak less Danish than I do, so are obviously FOB.  Also, when you're 500m from a university with a huge Asian Studies department, maybe not the best idea to talk shit about customers in one of the more popular languages of study.
I lost my phone and I'm hungover as shit.
Not precisely. It's very interdisciplinary but my current research is on the inter-relation of the Anglo-Saxon and medieval Nordic literary traditions, focusing on a certain mythological dynasty that was centered in Denmark somewhere around 400-600 AD. It's a very complicated topic, and I use a lot of different sources, everything from runic inscriptions to coinage to legal documents, and yes, I also have to occasionally reference the Eddas, which are where we get most of...
