Episode 17: Not Safe For Work

With the Snugglers now being flatmates/roommates – although, just to clarify, we do NOT share a room – last night we enjoyed a lovely dinner together. What we had to eat? Baguettes, pasta, basil, and tomatoes. It goes without saying that a discussion arose on how to pronounce all of the aforementioned foodstuffs…

Like most of the Western world, Sweden has had its share of anglicisation. In fact, Swedes are so fond of the English language, they have incorporated English words into their own language in weird, wonderful and mysterious ways. On today’s episode, we discuss some very odd such Swenglish phrases, including: Fan, fuck, förlåt!, Yes box!, Crazy bananas! and Shit pommes frites!

Ever been made to feel uneasy due to colleagues at work having cringe-worthy conversations? Well, we bet it’s nothing compared to some of the things you’ll hear in Swedish workplaces – which Scott will attest to, having recently been made to listen to a very open-minded discussion at work about “feminine hygiene” products.

Also on this week’s episode: Friday coffee! Typing class anecdotes! Gordon Ramsay! Swearing in Swedish and English!

Socializing with the Enemy

Farcebook

We have done “it”. As in we’ve started snuggling with the REAL enemy: “social” media. As in, we’ve got ourselves a page on Fakeb…I mean, Farceb… I mean, Facebook. Find it here and hit “like”. Go on. We urge you. Get antisocial with us!

Episode 1: The Frank and Ashley Show

Frank and Ashley

The temporary name for our show – before we thought of something better.

In the pilot episode of their program – which doesn’t actually have a name yet – Scott surprises Karin with a theme song and a temporary title for the show. They discuss online dating, how to take a better selfie and why you should avoid doing both.
