Oh my goodness, SO CUTE! You know what I love? How everything in that picture matches perfectly.

I see your Adorable Baby Picture, and raise you Baby tsq, on a freezing Seattle Easter:

Aw, thanks. And yeah, I'm actually surprised it all matches so well, Remember, this was the 80s! So much has changed since that pic though. I think only thing that's still around from that pic is the smile

Aww, look at the liddle adowable tsq! We had some freaking freezing Easters around here as well. I know there's probably some pic around of me and my sis as little tykes dressed up as Easter witches with full on winter gear on as well.

No. But it would make as much sense! He was in Norway, visiting my friend and i was introduced as his childhood friend. "Oh! You must be swedish!" He said. I couldn't decide if he was trying to make a joke or if he was just slightly.. unsmart.

Plus the English really don't like the French. Australians are cool, it would have been a compliment. (not saying french people are bad)

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Well it does sound a bit of a strange assumption to make considering you were in Norway, but historically Norway and Sweden have had close ties, and the two languages are very similar as well, far more similar than English & French.

We really don't hate the French though, I think we love the French, and France. I mean, we built an underground tunnel just so we could get there quicker!

Still. It was weird.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Well, Sweden and Norway was in a union (granted one sort of forced upon Norway) from 1814-1905, and tensions may have increased a bit since then. But only amicable. The two countries are friends, just ones that bicker at times. Sweden is in the EU, Norway is not. Sweden outside of NATO, Norway is a member or NATO. Sweden does not have oil, Norway does.

Just don't ask any of us for the code. I don't know it, and even if I did I wouldn't give it to anybody with shoes that fashionable.

Is there some huge "friendly" rivalry between Norway and Sweden? I've always wondered this.

I grew up in Minnesota. The whole north-central part of the state is dominated by Norwegian and Swedish immigrants. And they were always hugely competitive. The rivalries between the schools during the hockey tournament are legendary.

And a lot of the towns/cites in that area have either a Norwegian or Swedish flag on their "Welcome to" signs--the only place I've ever seen anything like that.
Hah! Fantastic! The feud caries on!
And yes. There is rivalry. Mostly friendly. I would advise you to never call a Norwegian a Swede to their face though. You might get punched. Not sure if it works that way the other way round. Some british guy visiting my friend in Norway asumed I was Swedish once. It made no sense. I'm not blond, don't use botox and I was not half naked.
Well you do look a bit like a friend of mine who is half Swedish, so you might want to check.

Well, I could talk about industrialization and men's fashion all day, but I'm afraid work must intrude. Don't make me do it the hard way.

Got the first round of my physics sleeve done today! Eventually there is going to be a bit of color, and the clef and bird are going to be incorporated into it more completely:

The family went to the NY State Fair today, it was seriously overcast and threatening to rain. Fortunately it never did, in fact the sun came out making it a beautiful day.
