Yes, I'm still alive! Believe it or not. :-) You wouldn't think so with how I've been neglecting this blog recently ... and that's being diplomatic. "Recent" is actually not the right word to use at all. I feel bad. :-(
I really don't have much to say for myself other than that I'm a lazy procrastinator who lets the time get away from me again and again. This will not be the last time. I'm going to try to not be quite so lazy about the blog in the future, but, well, we'll see. I make no promises. But I'll try. :-)
I'm not sure anyone is really reading this anymore, although it looks like I keep getting a few dozen page hits daily, but, well, for what it's worth. :-)
What have I been up to since, basically, the summer of 2013? Sheesh. Apart from watching last year's ESC, of course. Well, I've been traveling ... I've been to, let's see ... Visby, Helsinki, Ålesund, various places in the north of India, New York City, York, Kolmården, Gothenburg ... and of course the usual places like Rondane and Värmland and the Nordic Ark. At the Ark we saw Sparta's babies, they were beyond adorable. Had some fun times. My next trip will be to Botswana in Africa for a two week luxury safari in and around the Okavango delta. Two months from now and we'll be there. Yes, I'm really excited about it. :-)
I've become addicted to Pinterest - you can see my various boards here. You can also find me on Youtube where I'm uploading an incredible amount of randomness ... over the past few days I've been starting my annual review of this year's ESC entries. Come check them out if you like, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the songs too. Unless it's to say that your country's song is the best because it's from your country ... that's not how it works.
I've been working - I got a new job in September 2012, and I love it, it's a zillion times better than my old job. This past fall we moved to a new location that makes the trip to work kind of a hassle for me, but what are you gonna do.
I've become a huge Zachary Quinto fan, I've read a shitload of books, I've recently become quite a bit more active again with both BookCrossing and Postcrossing ... I've even attended the first, and AFAIK so far only, Norwegian Postcrossing meetup. I'm still doing the podcast. I still have my three little turtles.
But basically I'm just really lazy and procrastinate ALL. THE. TIME. So. All I can say is I'll try to do better. If you miss seeing me around, you can always find me on Pinterest. :-)
