A few minutes outside of Sundsvall (about 210 miles north of Stockholm), an old rusty tugboat caught my eye, and we stopped to stretch our legs at a place called Svartvik (“Black Bay”) which looked like an abandoned industrial site of an old shipping yard as well as the final resting place of the tugboat.
Though it was a warm spring day (around 12°c), the nearby bay was still frozen solid enough to scuttle across in some parts. I wasn’t taking any chances.
Just visited Stockholm Pride’s website and took their “How Hetero” test which measured just how straight or unstraight our Twitter page Swedense is, based on the tweets. Here’s the result when I said Swedense was a boy:
Swedense is 1% HeteroHow hetero are you? How hetero is Martha Stewart? Try out any Twitter name and get the real picture. Are we really the words we use? Hope to see you at Stockholm Pride!
As you can see, Swedense as a boy is nowhere near hetero according to Stockholm Pride. The reason, said the website, is because we’ve tweeted about Abba, pirates, Stockholm, Marie Antoinette, and Pride. When I re-took the test and said Swedense was a girl, the result was not quite the same. But either way, we’re far from hetero:
Swedense is 39% HeteroHow hetero are you? How hetero is Martha Stewart? Try out any Twitter name and get the real picture. Are we really the words we use? Hope to see you at Stockholm Pride!
PS. Yes, it was I who tweeted about Abba, the Pirate Bay and Stockholm, I admit it. Hell, I probably tweeted about Pride, too. But I swear to God, I never tweeted about Marie Antoinette, that was someone else. French royalty never was my cup of tea. DS.
