Today, I fucked up my wrist slightly cooking aubergines. Don't ask how, I don't even know. I'll not be typing too much for a little while to try and encourage recovery.

But I do want to comment on the election stuff a little more before I go, as much to have a record as anything: I've just watched the final pre-election debate and was really impressed with all the rödgröna leaders. Even Mona Sahlin (Socialdemokraterna) was very good today, which did surprise me. Maria Wettestrand (Miljöpartiet) is seriously quite brilliant, though.

I'll be even sadder when they lose now!

I think the main other things that have stuck with me are that:

1. it is almost impossible to really listen to anything the current boss (Fredrik Reinfeldt) says - it's just sound. It does something really weird and almost hypnotic and I don't think I can remember much at all of what he said, except that he flat-out refused to admit that his own legislation on disability benefit had actively damaged a lot of people's lives and that it was obvious it would do so, even when it the relevant lines were quoted to him and evidence was provided of people being fucked over. Obviously a lovely man.

2. I nearly threw something at the TV when kristdemokraterna's leader had the nerve to say that a vote for them was a vote for solidarity. How do they have the fucking nerve? And that word! I don't think it means what they think it means!

3. it's pretty amazing how everything that is wrong with the country is now apparently not just socialdemokraterna's fault (because they've been in power for the majority of Sweden's recent history) but also the fault of both miljöpartiet and vänsterpartiet - neither of which have ever held office.

It's like magic!

Plans for the weekend:

Fika.* Vote. Wish I could get drunk watching the results.

Plans for Monday:

Take exam.

* Drink coffee and eat delicious (gluten-free) pastries. National institution.
