New plan....

Might be just a few days, or more.......maybe I will go permanent, he he.
Will post more about how it is after some time
- Aasa


Jeg rømte fra min elskede
jeg sa mitt hus farvel
jeg vandret landeveiene
Alene med meg selv
Jeg gikk meg vill i skogene
Og nå er det blitt kveld

Og langs de bleke stiene
Er mange bål brent ned
Her hastet andre videre
Her hastet de avsted
Mot fjellene, mot stjernene
Mot glemsel og mot fred

Jeg gikk meg vill i skogene
Og natten stunder til
Nå vil jeg tenne opp igjen
En annens gamle ild
Og siden følge sporene
Hvor også hun for vill

Happy 17. Mai

This is a traditional dress from Norway - Nord Møre.
Every district in Norway has their very own dresses and patterns.
It is called a bunad.
The bunad you wear reflects the origion of your family
and has to be the pattern of the place they come from.
It is costum in Norway to wear it on the
Norwegian constitution day, which is the 17 of May.

I am...

...back in Norway (for holidays) and seeing it with new eyes.
Everything from:
"Wow, this is wonderful and beautiful" to
"I will soon be back here and die slowly from boredom"
I am just observing my reactions, and it is very interesting

I turn polar bears white
and I will make you cry.
I make guys have to pee
and girls comb their hair.
I make celebrities look stupid
and normal people look like celebrities.
I turn pancakes brown
and make your champagne bubble.
If you squeeze me, I'll pop.
If you look at me, you'll pop.
Can you guess the riddle?

97% of Harvard graduates can not figure this riddle out, but 84% of kindergarten students were able to figure this out in 6 minutes or less. Good luck
