*** The FREDAGSMYS thread ***

Urban Dictionary definition: Fredagsmys is pretty much the most holy tradition of Sweden. The word origins from two words; “fredag” and “mys”, which roughly translates to Friday and cozy. Every Friday, all Swedes drive by the supermarket to buy ingredients for taco, soda and chips. Then, they all sit down in their sofas with their families or friends and watch telly. Usually, the parents fall asleep after a few glasses of wine or beer while the kids stuff themselves with chips until they have a stomach ache.

So what happens this lovely friday in your lives? I'm gonna go watch Us in the theatre at 6:30 and afterwords might drink a beer ot two. So maybe not having that much coziness at home.

    Sounds like a normal Friday for me, except instead of tacos it's chicken wings.

    We have family movie night every Friday. We order pizza, pop some popping corn, chow down, cozy up, and watch a movie at home. Other than the menu -- tacos are reserved for Tuesday (of course!) -- we are right there observing fredagmys with our fellow humans from Sweden.

    Maybe I should go ahead and put in for that transfer to our Stockholm office. :i_dunno:

    What the hell? Fredagsmys talk is strictly reserved for the Agnes thread. It is the official holy tradition of the Original Thread. Get your asses back there right now...emotional simpletons. :tongue:

    I'm sorry, but all I keep seeing when I read that word is a reference to Fred having an orgasm. I thought maybe you decided that since Agnes was a lost cause you were moving on to old Fred Astaire clips and montages to assuage your pain.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Tomorrow it's time for PET SEMATARY. Not a fan of the first film. Enjoy the second a whole lot more. Read 10 pages of the novel.

    Ah okey, Classic swedish chocolate bar. Some people sat it tastes exactly like the brother-chocolate bar Center. Some people say they can taste a difference. Try it when Pearl Jam plays Gothenburg.

    Tried to go for a jog while my clothes were drying. But man, 200 metres and my mouth taste of blood and I start walking instead. 

    I really need to get into shape. 

    Will walk to the cinema atleast. That's a 45-50 minute walk.

    I saw the trailer for that in the theatre months ago. Let us know if it's good - it looked oddly interesting.

    Looks like it would be the same as the wonderful Caramilk bar, which is a contender as my North American favorite. I freaking love them. Especially when they're cold.

    Walked 25.000 steps today. It's like 27 degrees (Celcius ofc) out. Walked and borrowed some childrens book because I'm helping out adapting that book universe to a short film script.

    Now drinking a beer and won't get out anymore today. Unless someone calls about going for a beer. Otherwise I'll re-watch Avengers: Infinity War.
