My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was minding my own business in Stockholm, working my way towards a PhD on a well-known British poet when - lo and behold - I woke up one morning and found myself, alas not famous, but transported to the American Midwest. I remember wishing I had a dog (whom I could call Toto) so as to be able to tell him about my well-founded suspicion that we were no longer in Sweden.

Well, perhaps it wasn't quite as dramatic as that; I am going to spend some time at UW-Madison as an exchange graduate student, but I do feel a bit lost. Or perhaps it's just the lingering effects of jet lag. Be it as it may, I am looking for someone who can teach me the ropes - perhaps even explain what "football",b aseball and one-dollar bills are all about. If you also happen to enjoy late-night discussions fueled by fine claret or cheap plonk; discussions in which the low- and the high-brow blend into a quizzical but endearing expression; discussions in which the cadence, the tone of voice might mean as much as the words... drop me a line!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Procrastinating, writing, trying to find my way around Madison and the US, drinking insane amounts of coffee.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Languages, miraculous, mind-boggling, you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it saves (think of the Tom & Jerry trope with plates dropping from the ceiling and you get the general idea) when I am about to spill or drop something.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Ale, books, coffee, shirts, Apple products, friends (though not necessarily in that order).
