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').
Cooled down significantly.
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 #goodthing!
It didn't stop me. 😜
#Goodthings 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.
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."
