Get off the cross we need the wood

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. ♥


Tour de France

You really gotta hand it to the participants - when you attend a competition that goes on for days, knowing that you'll have to look forward to at least two accidents involving scraping up your bare skin in up to 60-70 km/hour (if you're lucky)...and yet, when the accidents occur, you know that you have to keep going, (almost) no matter what....

It kinda puts things into perspective doesn't, comparing them to the wussy (yet sassy) footballers who seem to be more and more occupied with how they look these days. These cute, little footballers really seem to like to roll around on the grass crouching and yelling when they just stumble over each others. And they keep lying on the ground until they got the judges attention at least.

You don't really see the same behaviour from the tourers when they fall off and slide across the road do you? Naa, they clench their fists, bit their teeth and hurries to their bicycles trying to get on it as fast as possible.

Now that's sorta admirable in a sadistic way.

Yeah yeah, Harry Potter

Although I fancy J.K. Rowlings world, I've been annoyed about the main protagonist, Harry Potter, for quite a while now. He's such a "woe me" spoiled, childish brat, who's good at whining and feeling sorry for himself too often. Sure, he's got his reasons, but he does seriously bug me too often. And I'm like, get over it, stop acting like a child....(which he actually is, something I guess I tend to overlook). And have Dumbledore ever failed him, not earning his total trust?

Ohwell...I guess that having a flawed protagonist is good and actually to prefer to godlike heroes, but jeez, a little less annoying Potter woudln't hurt imo :p

Oh, she's getting better and better at writing methinks, didn't really fancy her two first books but she's gettin' there =) And the intro to "the half-blood prince" was very clever, loved the twist on introducing us to what's happened since last book. And the death makes sense.... it really does :)

I must admit it. Whenever someone notices that "Hey, you're from Oslo aren't you?" because of my dialect (yes I've still kept it thankyouverymuch!), they're so making my day. It makes me beam, feel more happier & kinda radiate (I think :p). I've lived at these parts of the country (Bergen that is) for close to seven years now, and although some evil people (you know who you are!!) claims that I've been.....assimilated into a Bergenser (or worse, Askøyværing), I simply refuse to believe that. I don't wanna! And just even saying something like that to me is so mean!

I'm also really totally devastated that my oldest kid seem to not notice my dialect at all but rather go for the local one.....poor kid :( So the baby is my only hope left I I'm sad again...grr..
