My bike. 1970 Ironhead Sportster.

This is my Harley! Well, my husband and I share it, but I like to claim it.  It's standing in Trish & Evan's shop in Plymouth, MI.  We're hoping to ship it here by next spring...after we have some work done on it.

The Lake

In spring of youth it was my lot
To haunt of the wide world a spot
The which I could not love the less-
So lovely was the loneliness
Of a wild lake, with black rock bound,
And the tall pines that towered around.

But when the Night had thrown her pall
Upon that spot, as upon all,
And the mystic wind went by
Murmuring in melody-
Then-ah then I would awake
To the terror of the lone lake.

Yet that terror was not fright,
But a tremulous delight-
A feeling not the jewelled mine
Could teach or bribe me to define-
Nor Love-although the Love were thine.

Death was in that poisonous wave,
And in its gulf a fitting grave
For him who thence could solace bring
To his lone imagining-
Whose solitary soul could make
An Eden of that dim lake.

London, 30 april 2011

My husband Idar and i went for our now ''annual'' anniversary trip to London again yesterday! We were married 24 april 2008, and since our daughter Ivy Scarlet was born in march 2009, we decided to start our annual holiday trip last year.  Last year, being that it was the first time, we were confused, sore, frustrated, but still happy because London is such a wonderful city!!! This year was different! we knew what we missed last time, and planned it out..that included Idar spending over 3 hours on google maps trying to sort out our tube routes, etc.  It worked out perfectly! We hit CAMDEN MARKET and spent about 3 hours there.  By the way..we were in London just for the day.  Ryainair has a great deal--fly out of Rygge/Moss airport Norway (just 10 minutes from where we live) to London..come back the same day, and it costs about $40 total, round trip for 2 people.  Long story short, we haggled with some eccentric romanian goths on t-shirts and sweaters,
I found a Koffin Kats t-shirt at this tiny shop some dude who used to play with THE METEORS..(koffin kats are from Detroit! good ol' pals from some years back!) and to find a KK tshirt in London at some thrifty rockabilly shop, well, it turned into a long conversation with the bloke who was working.  good times.
The highlight of our trip, aside from just roaming around London with my beautiful husband, was this incredible vegan restaurant we had lunch at! Vantra.  It's in SoHo.  I had researched vegan joints-stores and restaurants-on the happy cow site and we ended up settling on Vantra.  I have been vegetarian for 12 years.  Well, for 1 year i fell off the wagon and ate a little meat during the time i was pregnant with Ivy and some time after, but I decided to just go back but this time, vegan it was.  After yesterday, I have decided to do the raw vegan thing..I've experienced raw vegan cuisine while I lived in Lansing, MI. at a great place called Magdalena's Tea House, but now, I'm fully convinced to try and do it.  I felt wonderful after eating that delicious food yesterday!

1959 Ford Galaxie

I am thinking about buying a project car.  Hopefully one day it will become this:

I think I should start with a smaller project.  There is a 1960 Ford Taunus for sale for relatively cheap across the border in Sweden.. I come from a GM family, so buying a Ford is sorta against the rules.  But I can't help it.

1958 Buick

I really need this car.

Music Thursday

I simply cannot get enough Robert Gordon.  Why did I just discover this rocker? I should have been listening to him my whole life!!! My daughter even loves dancing to his music!

Greasers and Metal

The best hairstyles for guys, hands down. Either pomp it up, grease it back or grow it long!  No more hipster scene hair! Or, just shave it.  Beards are always good.

Some of my art.

Elegant Machinery

My washing machine makes me feel archaic.  I oftentimes wonder if my laundry would be softer and cleaner (and safer)  if i just washed by hand, or, used this method pictured above.  Ever since i moved to Norway 3 years ago I seem to have been plagued by one crappy washing machine after another.  I just don't get it.  We're on our 3rd machine. Things keep getting worse. At least I can look good while doing it, though. :)
