He also thinks Swedish coffee is the best and is full of tips on how to keep yourself busy during the winter with cafes, walks, rock climbing and maybe even building your own synthesizer! Why not? It beats falling twice a day on the ice.

Time Traveling on a Friday morning

I called a number this morning while I was on the bus and left this message for a friend:

“Hello, I’m calling from Friday morning.  I hope you are having a good Thursday night. I’ll try to call again this weekend.”

In reality, I’m calling from Europe, where it is 7 am in the morning on Friday, to my friend in California – where it is 10pm Thursday night.  But to my eavesdropping fellow passengers…. I’m a time traveler from the future!  I randomly call people in the past to warn them about events that will occur 9 hours later!

I like to call my friend on New Years day each year so that I am calling to the past year.  I’ve often wondered about flying on New Year’s Eve/day at midnight.  “I stepped on the plane in Texas in the year 2012 and when I exited the plane in England, it was already 2013.”
