Funny thing about being foreign

The funny thing about being foreign is that I don’t talk about being foreign. Norwegian TV came to my place of work and interviewed some of our non-Norwegian employees during lunch. They managed to find one of the noisier places in our cafeteria to do so, but also a pretty visible one. (We assume it’s […]

And the other shoe drops

Unlike what other people I know experienced, 2012 was a laid-back year for me. I entered the new one, ready for action. Today, I got a taste of what might be in store: I’ve been asked to stand for election to my co-op’s steering committee, an office that is for two years at a time. […]

Where I was on Wordless Wednesday

Somewhere on the bus on the way back to the airport I realized that there was no Wordless Wednesday post this week. And since two-day seminars way up on 815 meter high mountain tops tend to knock a body out, I’m getting around to posting some photos for you only now. The nice thing about […]

Food. Again.

OK, yesterday’s post came out of the blue. For you. For me, it was the result of a Friday at work full of carbs: Bread, fruit juice and two kinds of cake. And that was breakfast at work. Still under the influence of all the carbs, I let myself take some leftovers home with me. […]

Adventures of a touch typist

A scene from work: My boss comes over to talk to me, and I am typing something, and continue to do so as I look up at him to answer him. He stares in horrified fascination at my fingers accurately producing words on the screen without me looking, and finally can’t stand it any more […]

The next half

New Year’s Eve. The day when people are either scrambling to get food and champagne for the evening’s festivities or are contemplating what resolutions to make for the coming year – or both. For me, 2011 is the start of the next half century of my life. I was 50 in December. It was actually […]

Actually, I’m having fun

Ah, yes, once again a long hiatus. I still owe you guys my Normandie adventure, and I haven’t forgotten. The nice thing about the war is that writing about it has no time limit. (Is my excuse. 🙂 ) Thing is, I’m having a collision of Fun Things to Do. I want to focus more […]

A brief list of happy

Came in from the rain and met a co-worker who needed an umbrella for an errand outside. So he got to borrow mine. Nice to be able to help! Got on full elevator. Full because our building superintendents had a cart for moving small furniture in it. No place to stand around it was left, […]

Years

Probably a mistake to try to blog while tipsy, but I just got home (the photo was taken at 2:44 am!) from celebrating a co-worker’s 25th anniversary at work. I had my own 2 years ago. I had hoped that my co-worker’s anniversary party was as wonderful as mine, and since we all hung out […]

Busybusybusyhappyhappybusybusy

Not posting on Facebook, not posting on Twitter, not posting here (more than usual), not answering comments or e-mail (sorry). And why not? Because life got busy and fun and busy and I find that if I am to get things done, I can’t spend the same amount of time I usually do at the […]

Say to self: Change is good

When last I wrote… When the heck was that? Sheesh, a month ago. You know, a proper post with several paragraphs and stuff. Something that requires a cup of coffee to read – and write. (I bought the cup you see because it says “Beautiful Home”. Nice affirmation.) I am happily busy at work. That’s […]
