The Size of Norway. Again

Today my sister Marit, her boyfriend Pål and their son - my nephew - Lucas visited Oslo and made two quick stops at my place. Lucas had decided to dump his little-red-raisin-image in favour of the I-shit-my-pants-again-image. He’s started to talk gibberish, has a really tight grip of you decide to put a finger in his hands - and he finds most stuff fascinating.

Especially The Girl, for some reason. When Lucas saw her, he smiled, he laughed and he talked even more gibberish. Basically the same way his uncle behaves when he’s with her.

And once again Norway turns out to be way too small. Pål’s ex-girlfriend lived in the apartment I live in now. How many apartments are there in Oslo? A lot. And she happens to have lived in the same one. What’s the chance of that happening?

I’ve found an interesting site. If you’re a geek you probably know it already, but I’ll link to it anyway: digg. Digg is a technology news website that combines social bookmarking, blogging, RSS, and non-hierarchical editorial control. With digg, users submit stories for review, but rather than allowing an editor to decide which stories go on the homepage, the users do. I’ve found a lot of interesting links there, highly recommended.
