Shake it like a polaroid picture

photo: Collin David

When I realized that they were not gonna make Polaroid film anymore I finally bought myself a camera, just to have one. But soon the frenzy made all film on ebay unnaturally expensive. It was sad for me but really sad for these photographers.

But now, good news: A group of European entrepreneurs are planning to restart production in an abandoned factory in the Netherlands. Yay, that's the kind on news I like in the morning.

17th of May

Not that the picture itself is of supreme quality, but I love the face of this little guy's look. I took it as the 17th of May (Norway's national day) and I think it really reflect the way we all felt that day when we were little.

The first of many posts that will concern Africa.

It is strange, how far one can go with a little knowledge. When I started to prepare myself for working in Africa this summer, Uganda was just another country for me. But now, after hours with article-reading and discussions, I already feel a kind of closeness to Ancholi people without even have been there (yet). Their situation is just so unfair, so unfair. And: it is as if their grief becomes mine too. Just because I know about it.

Apropos, my friend Agata which is in Rwanda doing research, wrote this tear dripping post on her blog which you should read!

I took this picture of us during the boyfriend's visit here in Oslo. It's at our new opera and he is doing the "Asian picture sign" (also known as the peace sign in the 70's) to prepare for our trip to Hong Kong.

Today I believe I got a job at the Norwegian Parliament. In the restaurant that is.

I really need to know!

Is old garlic bad for you?

After much discussion with a variety of more or less intelligent people lately I have realized that I have to bring this vital question to the blog world to get a clear answer.

When I was a little girl someone told me that it was toxic. But, after I have commenced this new type of extreme sport (old garlic eating), I can honestly not feel a difference. Can someone please inform me if I'm doomed to a premature death now?

Please vote on poll to the left!

From my very first and own garage sale

I have found my favourite tree. I've been admiring it while passing on my way to school for a week now. When I finally went to take pictures of the masterpiece today a man stopped and told my it was a magnolia.
