Fredagsmys.

Another week at work has soon passed. Offices spaces throughout Sweden is getting more empty by the minute from noon and on. The remaining coworkers are substantially cheerful. Suddenly your  grumpiest colleague passes your door whistling on some dust covered hymn from 50's...

Recently, this phenomenon got a name here in Sweden. Fredagsmys. I guess it would translate to "Friday comfort" or maybe more "Friday night cosiness". I believe that the term originates from a commercial for one of the biggest national snack producers and has, unfortunately, very little to do with sex.  

Average-Joe (or as we call him: Svenne-Banan) spends the night at home eating semi-home-made tacos drinking bag-in-box wine and looking at Let's Dance. Let's Dance is the Swedish equivalent to Dancing with the Stars or Strictly come Dancing. And I must say, quite frankly, the most boring program ever aired. I rather shit and bowl, place it on the coffee table and watch it dehydrate for 2 hours, then looking on 'stars' which is either way past their expiration date or young celebs from the C-list squeeze around a fit professorial dancer. Its not that much that I despise the concept; more that I find it almost painfully boring...

The more intelligent couch fan watches "On the Track" (sw: "På Spåret") which premiered in 1987 and still goes extremely strong. It's simply a game-show where two teams of two persons tries to figure out the destination of a speed-up video version of a train travel. After the video the teams competes for points usually by answering questions covering everything from sports to science associated with the destination... Sounds lame but is fantastic. 

Finally, the friday night cosiness is ended with that Average-Joe makes a move on wife-Average-Joe. In most homes it ends up with the wife going to sleep and Joe stays up... He has to choices. Either surfing for porn or swallow his sexual pride and watch sports... As I'm still a few years younger then Joe I play xbox...  

Tomorrow is the start of the god-forgotten "schlager-season", but more about this in another post...
