Ok, so I’ve been back in Norway with a steady Internet connection for more than 24 hours, but there was some sleep to be had, some Internet to catch up on and a friend or two that I had to be quick to see. And I am proud to say that I have read all my e-mails and emptied my Google reader already. Now I only have to respond to the e-mails and start going through my 2000 pictures from this summer. I still haven’t really gone through the pictures from USA and now I have been to a car festival (I’m not the only one liking 2CVs. Look!), I have been to Paris and driven 4500 km. There has never been so much asphalt and so little camp fires in any of my summer holidays before. Before I start the big picture posts, here are some things that I loved in my Google reader:
“I drink it when I’m happy and when I’m sad.
Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone.
When I have company I consider it obligatory.
I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and I drink it when I am.
Otherwise I never touch it, unless I’m thirsty.”

Comment: my dad bought Dom Perignon for me to celebrate my good grades this semester 🙂 I’m so spoiled.
Bold patterns inspired by traditional weaving is made modern and almost looks like pixels.
The first generation of TV and computer games nerds are old enough to be inspired by it in their designs. And also, things move fast in fashion, just as they do in computer science.
And the colours. I love them. I will show you my bright yellow bag or bright pink dress later, but just colours.
This is the kind of TV I want.
I have been shopping this summer, naturally since I have been to Boston, New York and Paris, but also as I have travelled maybe a bit too much most of the shopping I’ve done has been for others. And not that I have bought things for others, but I have been assisting others shopping. And therefore I have been looking more at men’s fashion than I normally do. Yesterday for instance, I suddenly found myself doing sock shopping. And I must admit that colourful socks are a great way for men to be a bit daring and still have a normal day job. What do you think of these? An ordinary blue suit and black shoes, a blue shirt and then a pair of bright red socks. Looks stylish and young and suddenly not so boring 🙂
This last frame is for Erik and his new pink shirt. You see the likeness? I’m not the biggest fan of tartan, mostly because I’m starting to get bored of it, but still it can be really nice. Like this 🙂
