Dressing up for Josh Groban


Yesterday mom and I went to Josh Groban's concert in Oslo.

I've been a huge fan ever since I was 14, and I think it's safe to say that Josh was my first 'real' love. 

Being fanatic about Josh, however, ended when I was 18. Now I'm just a fan.

I gave mom my CD collection a couple of years ago, and she's since taken over the fan-girling.

So, when I saw an add on Facebook that Josh would be touring in Europe, I got us a couple of tickets for his Oslo gig!

I even got an expensive dress
for the occasion  

 (Not even wearing a bra, tsk tsk)

 Serious work in progress

Mom arrived with take-away Thai food and fruits.

 Getting ready to dig in

Eating durian and jackfruit
 Yen tafo noodle soup,
which according to Wikipedia is:

(...) the Thai version of the Chinese dish Yong tau foo. Yen tafo is a clear broth with, usually, very silky wide rice noodles, fish balls, sliced fried tofu, squid, and phak bung (also known as "morning glory" or "water spinach"). The pink colour comes from the special sauce made from preserved red bean curd (...) The dish is mildly sweet, salty and sour.



I loved the show, of course. Originally, I wasn't too excited about his latest album "All that echoes" - however it sure has helped seeing him performing it live. I love Josh.

Breaking the Law & Moving


The other day I brought my mom to the botanical garden close to my house.

for Oishi tea 





Then guards came over to chase us away from the lawn, because it was forbidden to sit on the grass.

Mom sniggered. We'd already finished our food!


Mom had a good laugh at this girl's
pose while taking a picture
- God knows I've made quite a few funny 
positions while photographing myself

Pretty sure this wasn't allowed either

Unfortunately all of the growth houses were closed when we were there.

I think mom would have wanted to go inside...
According to mom there's a superstition 
saying that it is bad luck to grow jasmine flowers
(.. *pointing to a jasmine flower growing inside the growth house)
Mom said she already had thrown her pot out.
I told her Vidar and I have one at home, and she was like
"How long has it been there?"
"Dunno, a couple of months"
"Oh, okay, it should be fine. Give it away to someone"

I tried asking her WHY it is supposed to cause bad
luck - but she didn't know.

I'm keeping my pot.

Growth house closed?
No problem.

So cute

Yesterday Vidar and I went to help my dad moving.

I was dressed
ready for a workout!
Ice cream for breakfast

My dad has a lot of junk. He is a serious hoarder. He could've been on a TV show.

We got pizzas!

Then Vidar and I went back home and got drunk.
