Something unexpected 
2nd-Jun-2006 02:38 pm
There appears to be a large quantity of very drunk looking schoolgirls, mostly wearing sailor hats, coming out of the school opposite the office, climbing onto a truck decorated with birch trees and playing very loud music. Some of them are holding signs with baby pictures on them. One is given to understand it is some sort of Swedish graduation ritual. One is also reliably informed that there will be lots of drunk high school types all over Stockholm tonight. I assume that is unlikely to include Arlanda airport which is where I'll be going... However, apparently, this state of affairs is likely to continue till next Friday. And I'll be be back here Wednesday-Friday. My colleague across from me has been singing along to the music outside and has said she loves going to karaoke bars.

Interesting way to be winding down the work week...

So long as we have plausible deniability.

Er... I have a picture of the truck (and the birch trees)...

Would these be trucks and birch trees that just happened to be behind a collection of schoolgirls by any chance? Just couldn't get them out of the frame?

Er... 'fraid not. They didn't troop out and mount up till later. At the time, it was just the truck playing loud music and disturbing us while we were having lunch in the courtyard (office is in, AIUI, former Swedish military staff college).

You appreciate when you said they were mounting up, my mind went somewhere else entirely?

To old episodes of Tour of Duty?

Yes, yes, that was it exactly.

You want to be careful. This obsession of yours with the Vietnam war can't be healthy...

Is it my fault I have the dreams that just won't go away! That I can't see a helicopter without mentally undressing it's engine casing!
