ahh, those scandinavian summer nights


if i thought it was light in denmark when i woke up at 4:24 monday morning due to the sunshine streaming in, it's much lighter in oslo. i do wish we could save this up for those dark, dark nights of winter. but instead, i cruise on lots of coffee and just soak it in....the light is really amazing.

one more quick thing...i love that the BBC radio blog for World Have Your Say quoted my MJ post yesterday! thank you BBC, i feel totally validated.

one more one more thing...if i don't stop by your blogs this week, it's because i'm traveling and busy and it's really friggin' beautiful outside, but i'll be by as soon as i can and i haven't forgotten you. and speaking of not forgetting, don't forget, tomorrow is when the big 30 days of 30 secrets begins! and you too can participate!  you know you have secrets you're dying to tell! and look how fun spudballoo makes it look!

What Jane said...a mention by the BBC is pretty stinkin' wonderful!

Every time you mention the long days I flash on the movie Insomnia where Al Pacino couldn't sleep in Alaska due to this problem.

So if we post 30 secrets in 30 days do we need costumes and elaborate photos or is one little post enough? (please say no costumes, please say no costumes).

These late night bright summer nights (or very early mornings) amaze me. We are thrilled here that the last bits of sunlight are still peaking in the west at 9 p.m.! Was the light/dark change something easy to get used to when you moved there?

I agree that the BBC shoutout is very impressive. I hadn't read your MJ post before (how did I miss it?? stinking work...) but I just did and you are so right. I actually did like MJ back in the day - early to mid 80s, Thriller album I guess. To quote a song that I can't remember, I "liked Michael Jackson til he made bad"

Looking forward to your secrets. Maybe I'll do mine in August. I need to think of 30 of them anyway.

Cool about having your say AND having it broadcasted. I can't sleep, either . . . but strangely, I'm not tired. Feeding off the light, I guess.
