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.

Soon ringed

Published: Friday 2008-05-23.

It is only about a month left now until we get married, and things start getting into shape now. We have chosen a waltz to dance to, and the day before yesterday our rings were finished. They ended up being very nice, in white gold with our respective signatures on the outside, and I am really looking forward to wearing mine. On my left hand, because that is the way we do it in Sweden. In Norway, on the other hand (heh), the custom is to have the ring on the right hand, so Thea will wear hers on her right hand. It is possible that it might perhaps look a bit strange, but it is what comes most naturally to me.

Det innebär att om ni går hand i hand med dig till höger om henne, kommer ni att ha ringarna intill varandra. Gör ni tvärtom maximeras istället avståndet dem emellan.

Fanns det många bröllopsvalser att välja bland? Fast jag till viss del är inne i musikbranschen har jag noll koll på hur det typiska utbudet av just bröllopsvalser ser ut. Att det finns många olika slags musik för in- och utmarsch i kyrkan är mer bekant.

Eirik hedrer sine britiske røtter med å ha gifteringen på venstre hånd, og som Anders påpeker, er det jo egentlig ganske fint symbolsk når vi holder (riktige) hender :)
