Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Today it was once again time for the Holmenkollen 50 km cross-country ski race, a sporting event I have attended every year during the years I have lived here in Oslo, this year I celebrated five years. Usually it is me and my mother that watch it, but since it occurred about a week earlier this year, on my father’s birthday, he also attended. Unfortunately, the Swedes didn’t have a good day, but no matter what it is a wonderful experience seeing this event on site, that is something I recommend everyone who has the opportunity.

Jag såg lite grann på TV, och noterade ett gäng blåsmusiker som stod vid en kurva. Merparten av dem var klarinettister, vilket är intressant eftersom de flesta (bra) klarinetter görs av ädelträ och brukar inte vara populärt att med sig i kyla och blöta. Förmodligen var det s.k. plastklarinetter de hade. Jag såg också någon enstaka flöjtist och saxofonist, men hörde inte dem spela när kameran panorerade förbi.

Många av tv-kamerorna har inte mikrofon, så man slipper höra den dumma publiken... :-) Jag såg oss en gång på storskärmen inne på stadion, men jag vet inte om det gick ut i tv-bild. Vi satt lite dumt till, och den andra stora svenska flaggan syndes bättre...
