Beware - Norwegian spoken ahead...ask if you dare!!!

I lived in Norway, or Norge for those who can spakke Norsk!

Today is Norwegian Constitution Day, Syttende Mai - The 17th of May. And the picture above pretty much sums up the Norwegian spirit. They love the outdoors and doing crazy things!

In fact I was Russ in Norge - and played along with all the fun stuff that Russ do.

Ja, jeg spang nakken midt i byen! Nancy var med meg....hee hee.

I grew up surrounded by Norwegians!! I can sing their national anthem (Ja Vi Elsker . . ), make krumkake, varme polse, rommegrot, and sandbakkels. I owned an authentic Norwegian sweater. I got lots of rosmaling for wedding presents. I used to own a bunad. I've been trying to get away from you people all my life. Then I ended up in Northfield, MN - home of St. Olaf college and I just threw in the towel. Velkommen!

we are everywhere!!! ;)
One of my good friends from college moved there and is married with three boys - and I still exchange words of wisdom on facebook with one or two people I knew back in the day in Norway...

I dated a blonde Norwegian dude once.

That's all I've got.
