Emma Chambers (1964-2018)

20180524_075724.jpg

Just yesterday night I happened to find that one of my favourite actors, Ms Emma Chambers, has passed. Not being an expert but besides being hilarious as Ms Alice Tinker, she seemed to be a really genuine and nice lady, with a lot of love and humour. I can imagine that she, as Alice,  is in heaven right now calling for “Mr Tumnus!”.

Rest in Peace Emma, we love you!

In my Shirtpocket, October 2017: Hero 616

At work as a physician I’m often in situations where I’m not comfortable using one of my 100+ $ pens. Then I reach for a Hero 616. One of the cheapest pens you can buy, but it is very reliable and writes with a precise thin line!

One of the reasons is of course that it is a copy of one of the best designs ever, the Parker “51”.  Can you identify which one is a Hero and which one is a genuine Parker “51”?

If you plan to buy a Hero 616s I would advice you to:

I. Be sure to buy a pen of the big size, also called Jumbo size.

II. The seller that I trust on Ebay is jewelrymathematics. He is selling genuine Heroes with free shipping.

ÄNTLIGEN! At last! Kazuo Ishiguro wins the Nobel Prize! 

As I said at least five years ago:

Kazuo Ishiguro is one of the greatest authors of all time! He has been my undisputed favourite author for more than a decade, and he is worthy the prize for some of his works alone, like “The Remains of the Day”, “Never Let Me Go” and “The Buried Giant”!

I hope to meet him in person when he comes to Stockholm!

And yes, I already have his autograph!
