A Quiet Celebration

You know, I don’t care much about partying and fireworks. My perfect RL New Years Eve is a quiet one. Why? Because my puppies are scared of fireworks. So many dogs and cats are scared on New Years Eve but with this as with so many other things, people are selfish and inconsiderate. Also, alcohol and fireworks is a bad combination. I’m sure doctors have better things to do than to patch up someone’s mangled hand after they held the fireworks when showing off. Also, I think fireworks is a huge waste of money.

Find your Japanese Raw Dorayaki sweets at this round of Kustom9 where Cinoe offers the Year-end discourse. Not only decorative food and drink, it also dispenses bento animated food/drink for you and your guests.

In the Hall of the Mountain King

What ought a man to be? Well, my short answer is ‘himself’.

Henrik Ibsen

Ah, my Norway. Norwegian nature and Grieg’s compositions have always gone hand in hand for me. Nothing reminds me more of the mountains at home like ‘I Dovregubbens Hall/In the Hall of the Mountain King’. I can just close my eyes and listen and I’m there.

The Moon And The Stars

Don’t promise me the Moon and the stars, promise me to watch them with me, always.

You might wonder what made me think of the Moon and the stars while working on this picture? So let me explain – I’m wearing the Ojo de la luna tattoo by Resilience and the Astro eyes by Gloom. Both items referring to space or a celestial object. Since I’m not doing the generic blog titles, like a lot of people do their numbering, for instance. A lot of the time my blog post title comes from the items I’m showcasing. Sometimes directly; me shamelessly borrowing the name of an item but most of the times a title is formed indirectly. I often spend too much time coming up with a title. I should have just numbered my posts. This would be #486 😜 That reminds me I want to do a follow up on last years post about my blog stats. I’ve been blogging for TWO full years, it’ll be fun to look at some stats again, right?

Oh! You can find both the Ojo De La Luna tattoo by Resilience and the Astro Collection by Gloom in the ongoing round 8 of the MIIX Event!
