Swenglish

If a Scandinavian speaker says "it's not a dance on roses," he or she means "it's not a walk in the park."

If he or she says "it's not a cow on ice," he or she means "the situation is not totally hopeless."

So what happens if it's a cow in a bed of roses?

LOL!
I work with a Korean-American and he says "One stone for two birds" instead of "Two birds with one stone."

BritSwedeGuy: Damn you beat me to it.

I just have to stick to "Everything has an end, except the sausage that has two!"

Too bad I found this blog so late, I could really use some advice being a Swede in the southwest of the US.

I came to your blog through The Local, and your interesting approach of dating Swedish people. I should say, after living in Sweden for the last 3:5 years as a "freemover"student, I found your suggestions quite amusing, but close to reality. I would like to see more, something more in favor of guys dating Swedisg girls!

Hi Curiosa, You brought back great memories for me after reading your dating in Sweden blog. I lived and attended school in Lund while engaged to my fiance' (Din fastmö). I think that's how you spell it, I forget. I found the culture fun and interesting. I hope you're enjoying yourself as much.

Haha! The icelanders have very funny sayings too. Something about 'just ten drops' to refer to a cup of coffee.

btw, are you still writing or is the blog on hiatus now??

Hello, I read your dating article in The Local and I must say that it was head and shoulders (and possibly hat) above most other things I read in The Local. Good work! I will be following your blog with professional interest, as one expat-in-Sweden blogger to another.
