Find and seek

Look, kids, even the pretty people can end up in the gutter.

I like to take pictures of stuff I find on the streets and I also like to take pictures of pictures. So you can imagine how much joy it brought me to catch these two birds with one stone (or actually a cellphone camera).
Found in Torshov, Oslo, Sunday 10am.


Did you get it, did you get it, did you get it?

I admit it's not very easy to read signs when drunk (which is pretty much the only time Norwegians eat kebabs and various other junk foods), but I wonder how many drunken questions they went through for each of the signs they added - which all contain the EXACT same information.


While the rest of you were sleeping...

Step two of the VISA process. Proving I don't have HIV or syphilis and taking a bunch of irrelevant vaccines. They are irrelevant because growing up in Norway - I've taken them all already, so I'm basically flushing money down the drain. But what's funny is that I used to be so scared of needles that it took like 4 people to hold me down every time my class was scheduled for their vaccinations. My 5th grade teacher actually joked once that it is very unlikely that I'll ever become a drug addict because I would cry just by getting the letter home informing about an upcoming shot...and look at me now. Not only am I taking pictures while being poked with needles, I'm also smiling! So I guess I DO have the potential to become whatever I want after all, huh.

Then again, it could be because it's a very small price to pay to get to be with the love of my life for like ever and ever. I mean that metaphorically, cuz seriously - these shots are costing me a bloody fortune.

2 vaccines down, 5 to go.


Jargon Desktop // 01 (March 08)

For the last, uhm, 3yrs....ive been taking periodic screengrabs of my desktop as a way of capturing what my world consists of at any particular moment.

So, now i'll be continuing this tradition and posting on the 1st of every month (sorry, im already late) on Courtesy Of.

God bless archiving.
