About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.



My Scrapbooking

Been scrapbooking since late fall 2005. Currently fortunate enough to be a part of the design teams for Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants Designs and Pencil-Lines. ♥

Jeez. Alright, I've (somewhat) accepted the fact that MSN doesn't allow you to send *.exe files although I'm pretty sure I'm not stupid enough to recieve or run *.exe files that I don't know or haven't even asked for, but now.....gmail refuses to mail ZIP files *containing* exe files...!?!?!?!?

Can you be any more annoying?? *grr* I realize it's because of the potential danger of virus blablabalbalbla but %&¤%&#¤%&% ...!!!

Grumble....good thing gmail isn't my only emailthingie!

I'm afraid that my brain'll be seriously damaged soon. Turned on the TV, where ElimiDate was showing - and well.....where do they find these dorks? You might as well just give them a huge badge saying "I'm stupid and proud of it", or "I'm a jerk and not afraid to show on TV". Jeez.

They did however show funnelcake on TV. Yum. I want funnelcake!

Vanity Fair..

Posted by Ania On Thursday, January 12, 2006 0 lovely comments
Mmm.... thanks to Blizzards extended mainentance (and thus downtime) of WoW yesterday, we decided to rent a movie. Personally, I totally adore Reese Whiterspoon, and when I saw her "Vanity Fair" on the DVD rack I had to rent it - there was even a "6 - passionate masterpiece" quote on the front cover, from some local citypaper.

Boy, I was disappointed. No coherent story, the movie kinda jumped around and stopped only briefly at the different parts of the story (like, okay, we need to show this, and that, and oh, let's show that part of the story too, lemme see, mm, ok, 30 seconds each part?) Huh?? The movie also had to take everything quite litterally (okay, so this guy is mean, let's make sure he shows that mean pout and give him that punkish (indian?) hairlook. Oh, that guy's supposed to be his son, lets make sure he looks and acts exactly like his dad, hairstyle and pout complete, and to further make sure the really viewer gets it, let's make him ask out loud "do I look like my dad" while posing just like him, eyes narrowed evilly dadstyle). And well, I said I adore Whiterspoon, but in this movie she did kinda annoy me, cause well....as someone put it, she's only got two modes; "badass/freeway" and "ditz/legally blonde". In this movie that's pretty close to the truth, cause you see hints of the latter quite a few times. Usually it's okay, but in this movie, missing a decent storyline (or well, lacking the ability to show or even find the storyline), it just looks stupid and tiresome. (Ok, I know this is an adaption from a novel, and thus it's always hard when wanting and trying to cover all the bases kinda, but still, it has to be watchable for people who haven't read the novel either and can't be kind and fill out some missing indepth gaps in their own minds when watchin kinda...)

So, whatever the Norwegian critic who gave this movie a top six-dice mark was smoking while watching, please hand over some!! Maybe it'll give me enough clarity to see what kind of masterpiece this movie was.....not! *roll eyes*

Anyways, I still adore Whiterspoon (loved her in "Freeway"), and I hear she's quite good in "Walk the line", so...

Oh, and I decided the tshirt from yesterday was too childish and even though it's meant to be worn like, ironic (at least to me), I don't think it's something for me afterall.

Browsed around some and found this kinda amusing tshirt. *ponder* Shall, shall not...? I can so totally picture quite a few of my fellow raiders in this one for sure. It's however missing "!!!!!1111oneeleveneone" "ZOMG" "plz" "keke"....and one of the best ones in that tshirt so must be "all your base are belong to us". Keke =)

Ok..

Been thinking some more (not that I really wanted to, but this case really upset me), and I've come to a conclusion and I'd like to correct yesterdays statement: Both life sentence and five years are fine, as long as they get some extra punishment. In this case, I'd say chop it off for him & for her; well, how bout some more mutilation - chop off some fingers and stuff. That way I'd agree with their sentences.

Wtf?!?

I'm happy that the babyrapist got his punishment (although a poor one in comparison to what he's done) - a life sentence - for (repeatedly) raping a 12-week old baby, but how come his girlfriend, who raped the baby once, only got five years....?!? The judge claims it's because the girlfriend was under the malign influence of the rapist, so that she didn't really realize that what they were doing was evil....!?? H e l l o ....!?!? She's goddamn 19 years old!!!! A nineteen year old woman surely must be able to THINK for herself -- is doing this against a defenseles 12-week old baby alright....?? HELL NO!! (and noone woulda known about this if the police didn't find the pictures they took of their crime)

Jeez, what is she, a retarded moron?? (apologies to those who's really retarded, no offence please)

I have only one thing to say about this; W T F !!

Right, it's a new year now...

Posted by Ania On Sunday, January 01, 2006 0 lovely comments
Hm... I've never really fancied fireworks that much. Sure, it looks pretty in the sky, but I can't help feeling it's really dangerous, especially in combination with intoxiated people....bottles that some use as missile stands might fall down and cause the firework to fire at people...and so on...it makes me sliiightly nervous even though I know that hey, there's slim chance that things will go wrong, you really gotta have bad luck if a stray missile decides to hit you, and you take chances every day anyways, driving, walking, even doing stuff at your home...

*shrug*

Anyways...another new year, yay. How funny is it for Jews and well, other people (Orthodox and Muslims and stuff :P) that we're in 2006, while they're doing some other number (3000something?)? To me it seems like our way to count the time (don't make me look up what it's called) is the majority one kinda, the one the whole world is using...? Or maybe it's just me swimming around in my little goldfish bowl, not noticing that the majority is following another way to count time...this is getting way too deep for my little brain already =)

Ohwell...time to start preparing the turkey we're gonna have for dinner today =)
