The Future Is Today, Kids!

Published by under Ukategorisert

Coming home from University around 7 pm, not feeling like cooking, me and Tore had SUSHI for DINNER – in a PARK! In the SUN! Being able to indulge in luxury foods like takeaway sushi every once in a while is the reason why I gladly wash old peoples butts once a month.
Btw, I checked when the sun set today; 8.55 pm – I love it!

Tomorrow there’s an event at the Biology building called Natural Carneval – it’s like a Halloween party, everybody dress up according to the theme (Jungle this time), there will be alcoholsale, a dance floor, a DJ…and a biology quiz. Come on, we ARE biologists, after all. All fun and no brain stimulation a whole evening wouldn’t go down with the crowd.
Anyway, what I’m really looking forward to is, that we’ll be barbecuing on one of the lawns on campus before the party; I think it’s one of my favorite things to do; relaxing with food and beer and good friends in the sun after a long day of studying in my favorite time of the year – spring.
Oh, and what I’ll be wearing ? It’s a secret.

A Wonderful Friday

Published by under Meg og mitt liv

A wonderful Friday (freeday!):

8.00 a.m. – 12.00 am : Breakfast with Sam, reading some articles, a shower, getting back into bed to snuggle just a few moments more with «the very sick boyfriend» (read: he has the manflu). Decided to break in my trusted two-wheeler and cycle to Uni to meet Marte for lunch.

12.30 p.m – 13.30 p.m : lunch in the cantina – left over homemade chicken soup with tortellini – and catching up with gossip.

13.30 p.m. – 15.30 p.m. : having ice cream in the herb garden in front of the biology building with three girlfriends, enjoying the sun, getting a slight sunburn on the tip of my nose, trying to identify various bugs passing by, chatting about everything from funny shaped penises to international politics and just procrastinating with almost no guilty feelings – it IS Friday, afterall.

15.30 p.m. – 17.00 p.m. :  reading some more articles, working with the essay a bit, but mostly gazing out the window  at the lovely spring weather.

17.00 p.m. – 17.30 pm : Biking down Bogstadveien (shopping street) – smiley faces sitting at sidewalk restaurants having their first outside-beer of the year - to get to the Litterature House (Litteraturhuset). Met up with a couple of friends, had my first shrimpsandwhich of the year (slice of white bread, a small mountain of cold-water shrimp, lemon, mayo and a green salad),

 and then attended the lecture «Is Darwinism past its ‘sell-by’ date ?» by the famous biology philosopher David Reuse. Very entertaining, funny AND interesting; mixed with my overall admiration for this guys’ genius, plus a sprinkle of exciting (read: crazy) Creationist interrupting the lecture by running up the aisle screaming «REFERENCES, I WANT REFERENCES!». He was briskly shown back to his seat with the notion to hold his questions till the end of the lecture, upon which he then mumbled an extremely incoherent something something none of the audience understood. So much bravado during the lecture but then when he was offered the microphone he wasn’t able to present his opinion in a proper way.  Oh well, as Mr. Ruse put it; «We’ll just have to agree to disagree».

19.30 p.m. – 20.15 p.m. : biking back up the hill with big-A…

20.15 pm – 23.3o p.m.: …to get to the lovely student pub the Amateur (Amatøren) to attend a concert of a great, great jazz band called ‘Made In Corea’. They play cover versions of songs written by the famous jazz pianist/composer Chick Corea. Being a piano-less band they compensate with guitar and vibraphone. I really enjoyed myself; the music, my mood, the atmossphere, the people I was with, even the red wine I was drinking was perfect. – A wonderful end to a wonderful day.
