Lately, I’ve been starting my posts with rather peculiar headings. Like the one for this post: “Roadtrippin’ with M2M”. It doesn’t make much sense, now does it? Some of you might not know who M2M are, or rather were. M2M were a duo of two Norwegian girls, Marit and Marion. They had some international success, with two albums, an appearance on Dawson’s Creek and a song on the Pokemon soundtrack among other things. They didn’t play my kind of music, though, and I didn’t cry much when their record company pulled the plug on them while they were touring the US of A with Jewel. Two more childhood friends becoming enemies over issues like money and personal success. Marion is going solo, I’m not sure what Marit is doing. So, if I didn’t like their music very much, how come I know so much about them? Norway is a small country, and as soon as some Norwegians have any kind of success somewhere outside the Norwegian borders, the media makes a very big deal out of it. And, besides that, they were both good looking and that usually draws my attention.
And I’ve been on a road trip with these two chicks? Nah, not exactly. I just had a strange dream tonight. Me and Klas (and I might recall that Hallvard was there, too) were driving along in a blue van, when M2M suddenly appears in the middle of the road. So, we stop the van – naturally – and starts chatting with the lost girls. At some point I come up with the brilliant idea to kidnap the two former superstars. And that we do. For no particular reason. From there on, things are a little blurry, but I think that’s just as well.
It’s the 24th of December today, which means that Christmas eve is finally here. I still have some presents to wrap, hope I get it right this year. Merry Christmas to all of you, have a great evening.
