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. ♥

Funny how things seem to be way more interesting than they maybe are, when you're supposed to be focused on serious work? I don't know, but I've bee spending waaay too much time on checking up scrapping stuff -- and well, tbh it does look very interesting & promising (to me anyways ;) ), and before I've even scrapped a single picture at all (or LO as it's called - LayOut) I've already spend a good deal of shinies on this newfound hobby....

I sure hope I got some talent for this, so that the money and time spent until now haven't been too wasted *roll eyes* =)

Now, wish my scrappingstuff would arrive in the mail soon so I can start trying this out for real =) In the meantime I guess I'll keep working some on my actual assigned projects :p

Note to self: Make a new timetable =)

My little cute one, aged 3 1/2 months, just got - not one - but two teeth. So what you may think, who cares - there are even babies that's born with teeth (or so I'm told), but hey, I care.... and because I care, I'm making you care aswell :p


And yes, I'm breastfeeding her still......question is, for how much longer ........?

Posted by Ania On Friday, August 12, 2005 0 lovely comments what's the big deal with karaoke? I can see that it can be somewhat fun at home with friends, preferrably after a couple of beers or whatever, and somewhat painfully fun when exposing (mostly lesser) talents at some old pub or the dreaded Danish boat, but.... what makes the Norwegian public broacast channel actually make their own TV show based on karaoke, where you can watch a bunch of random more or less known people sit, look uncomfortably into the cameras and sing along to whatever song they chose to sing....and they actually allow random people to make phonecalls and sing through the phone for whole Norway (who choses to watch anyways) to hear... whee! And yes, this is karaoke in it's purest form, non adjusted, non enchanted and whatever they do with the sound at the television...(no, it's not pretty either). And it's been going on for ten weeks.

1. I'm amazed that I've actually watched this show for more than five minutes once
2. I'm maybe more amazed that the NRK, the public broadcast channel in Norway, actually spends *our* money (we're forced to fund this channel, no expectations..well maybe the King of Norway, what do I know about it) on of entertainment which should only be watched if you have had enough to drink yourself.

I might have expected this from TV2. More likely TVN. But NRK? *boggle*

Ofcourse. I may be wrong. I might have tuned in at a bad moment. This show might actually have been great. This might be fun for more people than those attending. Maybe it's really nice to show that the love of the song is more important than someones actual ability of singing. On TV. (We got Idol too, so shrug).



I'm glad this Karaoke-TV season is over now.

Winnie teh Elphie

[Winnie teh Elephant]Lookie, I found the most cutest little thing the other day that I just *had* to have...isn't he cute?? :) He's now accompanying my chellphone, dressed like a little blue elephant...

I tried to convince Simen to take the other one (Winnie teh Dolphin), but he simply refused to :(

<3 cute things!

By the way, have I ever mentioned how I love Monty Pythons songs? Their texts are always splendid, and they have a way to make the sound/theme/arrangements really fit.....they're simply really small masterpieces....."Eric the half-a-bee", "Every sperm is sacred" (love how they mix the boychoir in and let them sing parts solo and stuff), "Lumberjack", the theme to the Brian movie (never really fancied the "Always look on the bright side" one though), "Sit on my face" (*blush*), "I like chinese" & so on....
