Hey ho, Albany!
sosjojuror
And now comes Cristhmas, and I've left Norway for California.
That is ... Albany in the Bay Area (afaik at least), where my family recides for a year of studying, beer drinking, shopping and slacking.

It's a nice place, but I'm really not used to spending my Christmas in places with no snow (okay, we haven't had that much snow at Christmas the last years in Norway, but hey ...) and no cold, but I can really get used to being in a place with 9 - 17 degrees Celsius in December.

We got here Monday afternoon, and I've spent the last 1,5 days on sightseeing, window shopping, sleeping, drinking ale and playing Donkey Kong 1 & 2 on SNES. Awesome!
Tomorrow we're going to San Francisco, can't wait. I'm gonna buy me a suit! ^^
I want to go to Saks Fifth Avenue, or maybe Nordstrom or Hugo Boss (I guess I could go to Juicy Couture too, but even though I know they have men's clothing, I still think of it as women's clothing. My dad wants me to go to Macy's though, but I'm highly skeptical.) or something.
The best would be to get a tailor made suit, or three. :D

For everything else, there's Mastercard

Sunday!
sosjojuror
It's Sunday and it's snowing. Heavily. I don't like it, since it's November and for me snow = Winter and Winter = December - February.
In other words ... Something is wrong. And then I remember. I live in the middle of nowhere / Norway. This is how it is and always has been.

*sighs*

My neighbor is 22, no wait, 23 years old today. Happy birthday to him! :D

And I've slept well, spent about 1 hour in the shower - no more hot water today *snicker* and is now enjoying my brunch.
I almost never eat brunch, so it's nice when I finally do. :)

Sunday brunch

It's a bottle of ice cold water, straight from the freezer, a cup of sweet camomile tea, from London Fruit & Herb Company, chicken noodles with extra curry and chili and some turkey and cheese sandwiches.

It's very omnomnom, to be honest.


Also, yay! For once, my first post in a new blog is not a "Hey and welcome to my blog"-kinda thing.
It's actually relevant! Sweet!
