These 2012 entertainment moments had everyone talking

When Megan sang Zou Bisou Bisou to an obviously uncomfortable Don. Instant CLASSIC!
Also, the show generated inspirations to thousands, and some fans made quite the memorable art work, like this one. I want it framed and hung on my wall!

* Back to TV-land. How sad was this scene when Sammy, the dog Emily/Amanda had loved since she was just a toddler died? My eyes bawled for hours. Yes, Sammy HAD been in he dreamy Jack Porter care, but alas – how could mr. Porter be oblivious when to comes to doggie lingo? Oh well. The episode was the epitome of tristesse.

When we found out at that there were at LEAST two As working together against Hannah, Aria, Spencer and Emily! Ok, plot holes asides… I love this show because it’s grabbing each straws to make it as creepy as possible. And that freaking kid down in that doll store? Scared the shit out of me”

* “Gossip Girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite.” Wait a minute! Gossip Girl?”  Better make that…..

 

* Oh, the never-ending babybump watch, which I personally find YAAAAAAAAAAWN, but now it seems Duchess Kate is preggers, Jessica is having number two, Jen Aniston is pregnant for the umpteenth time according to “serious” newsoutles.

* Anne Hathaway’s do for Les Mes! And girl can carry it, too! Just look at this adores cover for Glamour magazine! I heart it!

Calvin Harris – Sweet Nothing ft Florence Welch

Words cannot describe the wonder that is Florence Welch. I’d marry her in a heart beat. She makes music that makes angels cry and elves lifting their earth-ridden spirits to the sky. Poles shift and cardiovascular catastrophes happen. So when this ticking time bomb jazzes it up with groovy dance rhythms, we have ourselves a hefty slam-bam-thank-you-mam -start to the glorious year that will be, say it with me, 2013!

This is my version of Instagram. Well, it doesn’t work the same way, but this is a chance for me to upload pics past and present and share it with you. All are copyrighted. These are all taken with crappy cameras or cell phone. Yes, I need a camera. But that’s another story. Being creative with crappy tools is half the fun, right?

Make your wishes for 2013 come true – A WishDog giveaway

UPDATE: Heidi is the lucky winner of the WishDog 🙂

No this is not some spam to take advantage for soul-searchers when 2012 is coming to an end! So what exactly IS a WishDog, you may wonder? It’s not a real dog, and no animals were harmed in the making. They are a part of the wonderful franchise that is Gallery Burguieres, a long time friend of mine. They are little magical dogs that are born in the magical city of New Orleans and are just waiting to make all of your dreams come true. What better way to start the new year? I will pick one winner only.

I will make your dreams come true  <3

I will make your dreams come true ❤

All you have to do is leave me your name and e-mail in the comments field, and tell me why you need a wish dog.  I will contact the winner on the 29th, so that means you have almost three days. Good luck!

This is Ally Burguieres – fabulous, gorgeous AND vegan. She has a Ph.D in linguistics and is (like me) a total air head like all artists are. You can read more about this crazy fabulous person under the ALLY category. Yes! She does indeed deserve her own category here, for so many reason. You should have seen the care packages she sends me, they are too crazy for words. And her voice mails. I wish I could pod cast them all. Haha!

This is Ally. Isn't she gorgeous? I only wish I would have done the make-up for this photo, because I can do everything better when it comes to that. But you can put her bare faced under a flash light and she'd still look flawless :)

 2013 – a year for compassion, friendship, recycling, humanitarian work, help the helpless and foster homeless animals. Anyone can do it. Spread the word.

For a better 2013

My bucket list is actually much bigger, but since (forgive me) I am in a feverish state of mind I can barely type semi-accurately on this overheated keybord. I will be back with a come comprehensive list later. So for now, this will do:

What Christmas means to me

uten navn

First of all, if you haven’t already figured it out, I’m Norwegian, so (duh) my traditions vary enormously from what you Americans call Christmas. No offense. I love me some fat jolly Santa just as the next person. OK, here it goes. We open our presents on Christmas Eve! That’s right! We’re all dressed in our gayest gear and eat dinner precisely at 5 pm, because that’s when the church bells declare it is at last the holy hour of Christmas.

But before then it’s a tradition to sit in your PJs eating candy watching:

 

OMG. This is the ULTIMATE Christmas flick, just ask any girl born in the 80’s or later. It’s a Czech movie originally titled ” Tri orísky pro Popelku“, which is dubbed in Norwegian by an old man so all the kids can understand it. It’s basically a “modern” (how modern is 1973, anyways?) take on Cinderella, where the protagonist finds three nuts, which each will fulfill her wishes. Needless to say, it has a happy ending where her prince whisks her away on a horse. Awwwww.

And so, after too much candy and TV, we clean up and don our festive clothes. No jeans or crocs allowed, shame on you.
In my family, this is what we eat:

Oh, it's glorious. Lamb ribs, mashed rutabaga, potatoes, sausage, sauerkraut and red cabbae. Image

When we enter the house and face this smell, we all shed a tear, because it is, after all, Christmas once again. Yumm!

After about three hours of eating, drinking, discussing, shouting, taking pictures and making sure the cats don’t tear down the trees, the “grown-ups” do the dishes while the children impatiently wait for the big event – to open the presents! After we serve coffee and cake (and some brandy, cough, cough) we open the gifts, one by one, to endless “aaaws” and “oohs”. This usually lasts way into the a.m, but it’s so worth it and I love it. I wish I could be home this Christmas because I have been away for too many, but next year, my dear family, I will be there. With bells on!

Home sweet home!

Home sweet home!
