Mhm.

Walpurgis Eve - and not 1 li'l invitation to anything at all.
Just about everyone I see outside looks like they're heading
for some or other happy party.

vic.gif

Only myself to blame, though chuckle.gif

Made myself a persona non grata by not being PC in public,
it seems.

Am always polite and friendly, though hug.gif don't get me wrong
...but that doesn't seem to help my social life at all.

Oh well, internet bill paid for 1 month ahead
and only 8 and a half hours to go to the Bruins vs Bolts face-off.

chuckle.gif

Thank the gods - gigs booked for every single weekend of May. yay.gif
My work is my therapy.

Why are wedding gigs so damned awkward..? 13.gif

Oh well, 'twas free food and good mon€y yay.gif

Let's see then, if my 100% track record holds...
I've played a dozen weddings - all of which, so far, ended in divorce lol.gif

But no rest for the wicked, off to rehearsals with Vita Krakor,
a brand new rock n' roll band I slipped into on a sorta banana peel chuckle.gif
Milk tooth gig incoming Saturday.

Sunday Peace to 1 and All! cheers.gif

into my hand by total happenstance blink.gif

Behold yours truly + band, Anno Domini 1996.

Oooops...seems the real world is taking over from my internetting.
Totally forgot this thread existed chuckle.gif

Otherwise I would have told you guys about my visit to Norway earlier
this summer. Turned my back on the Finnish Midsummer festivities and
went to spend a week over there.

What a lovely, lovely dream of a country blink.gif
(It is totally insane to give it away to distant strangers.)

My beautiful Norwegian lady lives in a fairy tale, Tolkien-like landscape. blink.gif
Makes a flatlander go blink.gif

chuckle.gif

Hi-tech town center still only a few minute's walk away.
Train ride into Oslo only a short one; to the airport 15 minutes.

57% of Norwegians still live in the countryside - and it shows.
Adorable little villages in absolutely impossible surroundings
look so much more alive than over here.

Oslo, on the other hand, is kind of stressful.
Counting in the mass of tourists, a million people crammed
together in a fjord valley. Hard to believe how narrow the
streets are. Houses tightly together - even in the futuristic
skyscraper part. Weird.

(A rather big portion of the Norwegian capital is already muslim.
No argument about it. And don't tell me Sharia does not
exist right alongside Norwegian law.)

But there's also a really nice, a bit Helsinkish art noveau
neighbourhood...and it's rather big and absolutely beautiful.

Sorry, no pics since I don't own a phone nor a camera. chuckle.gif

This became my absolute favourite among Oslo's must-sees,
though:

Mr Vigeland was something else.
Absolutely love his work and the park.
Gotta be there to catch the scope of his giganormous skill and
productivity. And no space fillers either - every single one of
those sculptures is a masterpiece with a fascinating depth to
them.

Although, of course, The Viking Ship Museum also was a big hit
with me. Stunning stuff.

Hated flying, as always - kissed the Motherland upon return. chuckle.gif

Hey, AS, I am glad things are working out for you.

That sculpture park is fabulous and it made me realize that that type of public art featuring the nudity of the human body in many different poses and situations is pretty much a no-no here in Canada.

Oh, wow...

My life takes new twists and turns  blink.gif

Not in a million years did I ever dream
that I'd be sitting in nothing but me shorts
in the shadow of a parasol
on the balcony of a nice hotel room
in Podgora
on the Croatian riviera,

with a beautiful, blond and bikinied Norwegian-speaking lady
by my side

watching Vita Kråkor's first official so called 'video',
The Boondocks premiéring on the internets.

Sunshine like a million kisses,
the Mediterranean bluer than its reputation
surfing against the beach only a few strides away,
me sipping on a wee glass of some excellently smooth local Vodka.

Like...  wtf2.gif   chuckle.gif

Life is strange as hell,
but rather good,
at times.

cheers.gif

Hvala, Hrvatska!
Love you & your proud and beautiful people!
