I wanted to call myself "Shellman the Ingenious Tortoise", but it didn't fit the name field on ...

I'm a father, musician, academic, work psychologist and former sysadmin. Skalman (Shellman) is a character in a Swedish comic for kids. He is an ingenious tortoise who invents all sorts of things, including spacecraft and time machines. He's also a know-it-all, and he slavishly follows his food-and-sleep clock (which is why people used to call me 'Skalman').

I toot as an academic/psychologist as @drbjork and as a musician as @bluebirch. I'm also in Swedish as @fenomenologen.

The heat ruins my mood. I turn angry at everything and everyone.

You don't want to be with me when it's 28°C outside.

Had a look at Tumblr (because oldest child use it) but it was so confusing. What is this? Most pages look like 1990s HTML experiments.

For the weekly commuting work, I was offered a pretty good salary, better than I have ever had in my life. So that's two today.

The position I am offered involves weekly commuting, which I am not too happy about.

I got news from a colleague (and former student) that they're quitting their current job at an employer for which I have done some consulting work over the last few months. I have tried to reach the consulting manager over the last few days, and today I finally succeeded.

They were interested and agreed to meet next week, cancelling their vacation. That is truly good news and certainly today's !

today was making a simple dinner and bring it to Bölesholmarna -- an islet in the Ume River -- with the kids. I even made a fire with a fire striker.

Oh, well, *almost* made a fire.

today were a visit from my sister and getting word that an employer want to hire me.

Heated discussion in the family. Everyone except @Linuxtjej hates baby Yoda.

Discussion ended with oldest child starting to sing. "I want to kick baby Yoda in the ribs."

And the last days have been doing things s-l-o-w-l-y with @Linuxtjej. Things easily go too fast and become too much when she's around.

Sometimes I think I'm good for her. ❤️

yesterday was to lie on a blanket with @Linuxtjej and listen to an episode of the Psychology in Seattle podcast. Dr. A very touching episode in which Dr. Kirk Honda and Bob Goettle talked about self-hatred.
