Fun for those who are still 12 inside.

Took this picture a couple of years ago.. I have been meaning NOT to post it, but tonight I found it again and after giggleing for 2 min., here it is.

scroll down for the uncensored version.
For the record, it means TO RENT in italian. I just had to remove an A.

A list to myself

OH! That is a deep breath. So this is what happened last week.
I got better from chickenpox but the virus (that bastard!) had already gone into my brain so I got the WORST headache you could imagine and had to go to the hospital and they took out some of my brain fluid from my back and checked it and so I have something like an infection. I am not very sick, I just have an headache and am very tired. I will get better. BUT OH MY I so want to go on with my life, be myself again. So I made this list to remember myself to actually do these simple but necessary things as soon as I am up and feeling great again. And cross my fingers that my daughter will not bring home another virus of some kind, at least for a while. 

I hope you all are okay and celebrating spring!

"You know what's wrong with Norwegian food?"

Found this funny thing today.
A LUTEFISK pre-cooked TV dinner.
Maybe next year instead of eating Grandiosa for Christmas, somebody should try this one?

Oh yeah and I found this joke:
"You know what's wrong with Norwegian food?" a friend asked, not waiting for an answer.
"It's all white. It tastes really yucky. And it smells."
(I do not agree)

I will share a secret with you (norwegians, with a TV)
I like watching ÅNDENES MAKT. Can`t help it! 

Have a good night.

THE norwegian cheese #1 !

Yes I am talking about Mr. Jarlsberg.
Apparently it`s the most widely distributed fresh Norwegian food in the United States.
What is so special about it? I still have to find out. The misteries of Norway! 
Maybe the thing is that in Norway we dont have so many kinds of food to choose between (at least compared to other european countries) (Yes I WILL SAY IT, COMPARED TO ITALY!) 

But anyway I read an article called King Jarlsberg here and today it is TACODAY friday - so you will need your cheese! Now go and buy it! And if you live in the U.S.A., please keep the norwegian economy up and going, go buy the Jarlsberg cheese you too :) 

Jarlsberg is a beautiful place in Vestfold as well. Here.

The neverending story...chicken pox II

So it seems like now its my turn to get chicken pox. Wow. Its really as bad as you can imagine. Itching. NOT scratching (even if I want to...OOH I want it so bad!).

Once in a lifetime they say, I sure hope it is right.

A DOODLE A DAY: Saturday

Sometimes it is nice with rain on a saturday, when it melts the snow for example, or when you really need to relax and read a good book.
