I have been a lazy mailer during the past months. I needed a break for one thing and then the rates have gone up not once but twice this year. Foreign rates are now dkr 25 (US$3.66) and the slightly lower rates for Europe has been discontinued so that a letter to Sweden now cost the same as a letter to Japan.

Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain…

– Ja, Albert?
– De der dimser atleterne fik sammen med deres medaljer …
– Kan man købe dem i Fætter BR?
– Du kan jo gå ind og spørge …
