I’m baaack!

Queen of the Fucking Universe is baaaack!

That’s right. After a couple months sabbatical, I have finally found the time to reconnect with all my little blogging friends (Don’t take the adjective the wrong way. Our friendships are big, no worries).
I guess the first thing I should blog about is something that has been taking up a great deal of my time: POP Pilates! I’ve spent a lot of time the past couples of weeks focusing on my health. That means working out, eating healthy and treating my body right. Cassey Ho, the creator of blogilates, has really helped get me motivated with her website, and by seeing all the fun she has by keeping healthy!
I totally recommend taking a peek at her website, and if you like what you see, then follow!
Trust me, the feeling of waking up in the morning with slightly sore muscles telling you you have worked them well is the best feeling ever!

Snap back to reality

Back in Norway after my ah-mazing vacation in Spain.

I definitely was’t ready to leave, because now I’m back to reality where I have to semester projects to finish by next friday, and exams after that.

But none of that will put a damper on my memories. We had a few drunken nights playing secret asian man, paying 1,5 € for a beer and 2 € for tequila shots, trespassing on golf courses and of course laughing at the stupid things people say when they are a little passed tipsy:

“South africa? Are you sure of that? I thought she was from a specific country.”

“Im an excellent breeder assistent…. Even ask your aunt debbie!”

“It was like pure wissshhkey.”

“Glow dance? What the hell does that have to do with a sobriety test?”

We also had ice cream everyday, went shopping, found swapmeets and hung out at the beach. All in all, it was very relaxing.

I will definitely miss the sunshine and being able to wear shorts and t-shirts with no jacket.

Let the countdown begin!

It is officially less than a week until Spain. More exact: 5 DAYS!

Man, I need to go pack, like right now.

But wait, I haven’t shopped yet! (Blasphemous I know. )

I don’t have a bathing suit yet (Maybe I’ll buy a couple)

I don’t even own shorts! (I don’t like frostbite on my legs)

To-Do List Before Spain:

  • Buy bathing suit(s)
  • Think about Spain
  • Finish semester project
  • Think about Spain
  • Buy shorts
  • Think about Spain
  • Buy dresses
  • Think about Spain
  • Leave for Spain!

Not my most challenging to-do list, but I’ll enjoy every second of it
(Except for the semester project)

We’re all made of stardust!

As I have mentioned before, I work as a math tutor for junior high and high school students. Once a month we arrange a student-night and have a guest speaker come and do experiments with the kids, trying to get them more interested in science and physics.

This month we were visited by a very popular norwegian physicist named Andreas Wahl [see below], who put on a science show for us called ‘The Universe in 42 Minutes’.

He started of his show by explaining where the universe comes from, and that if we really think about it, ‘we’re all made from stardust’. By this time, I would guess that about 85-90% of the girls in the room had found their new crush. I would be lying if I said I didn’t find him fascinating myself.

After that, he did a bunch of fun little experiments, like getting a swim cap on with no muscle force by filling it with water, making two connected hearts by cutting to rings of paper without lifting the scissors, money that survives fire by dousing it in a mixture of alcohol and water, a potato launcher and a newer version of the tablecloth experiment.

All in all, it was a very entertaining show. If I wasn’t already interested in science and math, he would definitely be the one to convince me.

Chocolate facial? Yes, please!

P220311_15.06Normal facials are awesome, right? Relaxing, refreshing and they make your skin smooth. Now just imagine, a facial that smells like chocolate. Amazing!

I ended up going home from school early cause my neck and shoulders were bugging me again.

So me and my roomie decided to give ourselves chocolate facials!

It smelled so appetizing. I kind of wanted to just eat it rather than putting it on my face. hehe.

We finished it off with a strawberry moisturizer.

We kind of had food pattern going on.

It was a great way to relax a bit. I recommend it to all!

Ølbriller = beer goggles

 

This song is hilarious.

It’s a shame that its in norwegian so most of you won’t understand it, but I’ve taken the liberty of translating the parts of the lyrics that made me smile. It doesn’t flow as well in english as in norwegian, so if you really want to capture the essence, just learn norwegian. Hehe.

Btw, Princess Madaleine is the princess of Sweden.

She was the chick that only every got shit,
The chick that never could get Brad Pitt.
An ugly duckling, no prince charming,
No happy-ever-after, this ain’t a fairytale.

Not so fast, she only got pretty
After the wine made her 90 kilos skinnier
She looked like a man-girl half an hour ago
Now she looks like Britney, can it be the wine?

You scared me at first, but I was thirsty
So I drank you as pretty as Princess Madaleine
Yeah, I have my beer goggles on, my beer goggles on

Shots make her fancy, wine makes her classy
She’s swinging like babe in Dirty Dancing.

She’s an ex-witch, now she wants to have sex,
Beer goggles on? Check. Ready, set…

She was tight, kinda alright but
Later she got hotter than fire
Before she was anything but hot,
Now she’s fucking great, like Cinderella

F*ck You

This chick is awesome.

Really, everyone should learn sign language so they can be as bad ass as she is.

 

And if I’m gonna be honest, this dude is cool too. Even though Miley Cyrus makes me cringe.

I’m Stylin’!

Would of thought that in my time of absence I would be crowmed with not just one, but two stylish awards!

I’ll say it was a pleasure to receive both of them. One was from Nikki at WomenAreFromMars And the other was from BeneathTheSpinLight.

As a receiver of the Stylish Blogger Award, I have to do the following:

  • Present seven facts about myself.
  • Name half dozen bloggers I think deserve the award. Contact those people.
  • Create a link back to the person who gave you the honor.

10 7 Things to Hate Know About Me:

I adore the movie 10 Things I Hate About You, but How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days is my favorite (10 seems to be a special number)

I have 5 and a half nieces/nephews (one is still in the tummy)

Although I love a good party, most days I would rather stay home with a good book.

If I didn’t have my iPod I’m pretty sure I would be in an insane asylum

One of my life mottos is ‘Its only funny until someone gets hurt. Then, its hilarious’

For Lent this year, I’m giving up my one true love, candy (not the eye candy though)

My dream is to one day move to Glascow in Scotland.

When I’m drunk I tell everyone I meet to shut their eyes and ‘just feel life’

Back to real life

Paris was Ah-mazing!
I had forgotten just how much I love that city.
I wish I could have taken more time off school and satyed longer. We had just enought time to see all the usual tourist haunts: the Effiel Tower, Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur, Arc of Triumph, the Catacombes, the Louvre and all the other popular places to see.

We also had time to shop on Champs Elysees a couple times (wasn’t very cheap, but totally awesome), find as many starbucks as possible, count all the people walking around with baguettes (at least 30 each day), ride around on the metro without any destination in mind and meet up with a friend that lives in Paris.

We stumbled our way through communicating in french (we remembered less french than we thought), we bought alcohol from a grocery store, drank wine at lunch, ate ‘real’ french food and had a waiter thinking we tipped him because he was hot (which he was, but we tipped him because he was a good waiter).

Unfortunately, I still wasn’t able to see a cabaret at Moulin Rouge, which is something I really want to do. And I had a scare the somebody had gotten access to my bank account and emptied it out because my card stopped working and the bank was telling me I had no more money to take out. Luckily I had just used my limit of out of country withdrawls.

I am now a couple hundred dollars poorer, but I have a bunch of new memories that make it worht it. I’m already trying to plan when I’ll be able to swing another trip out there.

Maybe this summer when my bestie comes to visit?
