At work, Self portrait

I am easily amused...

One of the municipalities I am helping in the summer vacation is called Sauherad, which means "sheep municipality". To the best of my knowledge it can mean nothing else in Norwegian or any of the nearby languages. I bet it is a thankful job being politician there.

Or how about Nissedal, which means "gnome valley". It must be interesting for the people from there when they try to tell random strangers where they live.

Oh yeah

while I remember it, happy Independence Day to the citizens of the (reasonably) United States of America! Please continue being independent this year too!
