Flickr

I am uploading my drawings to Flickr. I only have the old ones you probably have seen before, but I will try to scan new ones as soon as possible
I will keep this site for my drawings, as I use foto.no for my photography

Today...

"Sometimes I feel
Like a motherless child
A Long Way From Home"
Today I am hiding in my bed. I am a tiny little troll with fuzzy hair and big, sad eyes. I am crawling deep down under the duvet, so it covers all of me... sinking softly into the darkness and protection of it.
I am so small I almost disappear into mattress.

Outside the moon is staring to appear in the sky...I can feel it. As I am slowing falling asleep mumbling little troll songs to myself while my eyes are closing slowly

"A question that sometimes drives me hazy:
am I or are the others crazy?"

(Stole this from a myspace profile)

Kitsch-Cute?

Isn't this the best phones in the bloody world? I am drooling on the pictures and cursing the fact that probably these assholes don't even ship to Europe Haaaaaaaaaaaaaul!
My dream phones.....Sigh
Have a look at their webpage Its pretty neat!


OhMyGod, I found one that is THE BEST EVER! (Except for the gold look, should have been silvery)
Isn't she gorgeous? (Yes, its a she, don't argue and shut up)
And now I am lost in the world of retro vintage dreams and websitesSigh, of course it is bloody discontinued.
I found it in one store but they don't ship to Spain.

If anybody happens to trip over it (used or anything) in a store that ships to Spain or Norway, please scream out to me will you (Crosley Viscount phone) Or one that looks alike it as well. I will be very grateful.
This phone is already mine in my head, ha ha! (Sorry, I am usually not this materialistic)

Jeg er akkurat stor nok.
Fyller meg selv helt

Er du større enn deg selv kanskje?

Far from it.
I´m exactly the right size.

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

Personality
You are more emotional than logical, more concerned about others than concerned about self, more atheist than religious, more dependent than loner, more lazy than workaholic, more rebel than traditional, more artistic mind than engineering mind, more idealist than cynical, more leader than follower, and more extroverted than introverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are romantic (100%), outgoing (100%), adventurous (90%).innovative (86%)

Stereotypes
Emo Kid89%
Hippie84%
Punk Rock80%

Life Experience
Sex44%
Substances49%
Travel37%

Politics
Your political views would best be described as Socialist, whom you agree with around 100% of the time.

Socioeconomic
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Upper Class. You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 100% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated R.
By the way, your hottness rank is 67%, hotter than 74% of other test takers.

Something random...

...that you feel like expressing....

I just want to say that I am pissed of at the people who stand under roofs when it is raining with their umbrellas up, and the people pushing to get in when I am trying to get off a bus or subway
Also I would like to add that I love caramel fudge, old couple who hold hands and the people who get up for the old or pregnant on the subway
Feel free to say something random if you want as well!
That's all folks!

Some Fun Tests - Try Them Out


Aasa, you're
27%
Masculine


That means you're 73% feminine. When we compare your results with other women it shows that you are somewhat more masculine than average.

What does it mean for a woman to be masculine? Masculinity in Western culture involves participation in physical activity and strong analytical skills. But masculinity is more than just liking sports and analyzing problems.



Aasa, you're happier than 90 percent
of the other people who took Tickle's Happiness Test.

How do Tickle's experts know this? Because they measured your overall happiness level in relation to other test takers. To do this, they examined your attitudes and behaviors in the seven proven areas of life that are known to determine your happiness: Contentment, Confidence, Gratitude, Personal Growth, Cheerfulness, Relationships, and Optimism.

New photos

I have made a new "mini"-series with pinhole-camera**(Click on to enlarge)
I Would love to hear opinions about color, composition etc...
Also what you think about it, and if you have any thoughts
about what it might express for you.
Best
Aasa

**(For those of you not familiar with pinhole-cameras, look in my archives at the post I made 28/12/06.
Quickly described it is a box functioning as the camera without a lens, except a tiny hole made with a pin.
The small amount of light that enters the box captures the images to a light-sensitive material placed inside the box.)


-

The soft touch of my feet
slippery ground against skin
smell of earth, sun and leaves
I hold my breath
for a second
maybe two
and close my eyes
hard

a warming focus
I am still
I can feel the vibrance of the evening
closing upon me
all the life that fills up all
and crawls around everything
all this existing
in the very same
instant as me
we share a creation
a time
a death
we share the moment
endlessly here
intensely beautiful
if you want to
until it ends

all this life
it cannot be denied
so I release my breath
and I open up my eyes
again

---

It is the silence you can hear all around
It surrounds you in the enormous masses
It shouts to you from malls and traffic lights
you run and run from it
but you never stop to hope
one day to stand still

---

Restless
In an emptiness
Between everything
The words I am looking for
Are only letters
giving no meaning
still the feeling
remains

---

Your brown eyes
The little wrinkles you have under them
When you smile, all your face light up
and its like you are joking
with yourself
and the world
this sensual smile of yours
which cries and jokes
Your beauty hurts me
in a wonderful way

---

I let myself fall
behind who i am
where reason is a feeling
where insanety is sane
i fall underneath myself
behind my own borders
sinking

with wordless speach
I find myself again
in the scratched memories
I once cast away

Dragon for sale.

I know it has been a long time since I have told anything about Eyolf, the dragon that lives
under my bed. This is mainly because there has not been much to tell about it, we have been living harmoniously together.
He doesn't make much of himself, when I am there he either sleeps or sneak reads Harry Potter books. When I am not there he goes for a flying trip or steals fudge from my closet.

But now I have some news....and they are quite shocking.
I was talking to this Norwegian guy today, who showed a lot of interest in Eyolf.
And after I had answered several questions about Eyolf, he offered to buy him. Normally I would not have been interested at all, mainly because I don't thin it is even possible to sell him, as he is not mine, But the price he offered was 2000 hugs, an offer that I must say is very very tempting. Do you my readers have any suggestions about what I should do?

I also discovered something else that was quite astonishing. Somebody else obviously knows Eyold, they have even written a book about him
Look:
Now some of you might claim that Fudge is the name of the chimp on the cover of this book, but that only proves your lack of reality perspective. I am pretty sure the chimp is trying to steal fudge from Eyolf, it must be a book about how the war for it.
I want to buy it!

~ Åsa
PS: I submitted the earlier posts I made about Eyolf for those of you who don't know him from before.

Purplespotted dragon


A dragon has moved in under my bed
Its smallish compared to other dragons I have seen
and has purple spots all over
I haven't dared to ask its name yet, but if I work up the courage to do so I will tell you

So far we have pretended not to see each other
And every time he blows a little flame,
we both just roll our eyes and afterwards look up into the ceiling (or in his case, the bottom of my bed) pretending it was just very natural that the bed nearly went on fire.
I am not sure how long we can keep it up like this

xxxx
Aasa

PS: I haven't dared to take a photo of him so you will only get something that almost look like him. Think of him as a mix between the both.

Dragon under my bed

My dragon was gone for a while.
I don't know if you remember him.
He lived under my bed for nearly a month, didn't even introduce himself,
and then one day all of a sudden, ha was just gone.
I was very puzzled.
So puzzled that I actually forgot to tell it to you.
I actually missed him

Sometimes when he was sleeping I could hear him talk in his sleep
Then he would suddenly make a little growl and blow the tiniest, cutest little flame into the air

One time he burned my toe
After that I slept more carefully and a lot lighter

But the good news is
NOW he is back
I came home today and heard somebody gnawing on something
I am not very familiar with gnawing-sounds coming from my room,
so I entered it with some precaution
There I saw his purple-spotted tail sticking out from under my bed

I must say it was a happy occasion
Maybe I will even try to introduce myself now

Eyolf the dragon

It has been a long time since I told you all anything about the purple-spotted dragon under my bed
I have managed to find out that his name si Eyolf
He also likes Yogurt with Pineapple-taste and fudge
(He eats the ones I put on the floor, even the package around them, but he has never touched the strawberry-flavoured ones)

That's all for now
I will tell you more if I find out more

"Let's avoid death in soft quotes,
remembering always that to be alive demands an effort much bigger
that the simple fact of breathing"
(freely translated by a friend from Spanish)
~ Pablo Neruda


Today I stayed at work 40 min longer than I had to, just because I had so much fun playing with the kids, that I lost track of time.
never forget to play folks
There is never a time in life for growing up!

The road not taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day
Yet knowing how way leads to way
I doubted if I should ever come back

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference

No matter what


Small said
"What about when we are dead and gone,
will you love me then,
does love go on?"

Large held Small snug as they looked at the night
at the moon and the stars shining bright.

"Small, look at the stars, how they shine and glow,
some of the stars died a long time ago.
Still they shine in the evening skies,
for you see Small,
love like the starlight never dies...."

April 2 Update:

Oh, bad bad Åsa *little slap on the wrist*
This was an 1 of April joke
I fooled 4 people yesterday, a friend of mine believed me when I told her it has been discovered a new camera decease that attacks the sensor in digital cameras (she is a photo student as well)
But then I also had to try and fool somebody in my blog
To bad I posted it at 22:00 in the evening, a little late for a joke, but had to squeeze the rest out of the 1 of April...HIhihihihihi!
