Long time, no see!
It's been over a week since my last post. A lot of things have happened, so I'm going to walk you through day by day;
Friday: I arrived in Oslo at seven o'clock, I had to put my bag in a lock-in-closet, buy breakfast and find my way to the hospital.
At three o'clock I was finally done with x-rays, planning the operation and all the tests you can think of (okay, maybe not EVERYTHING, but a lot). I found my way back to the bus stop and took a bus to Drammen to meet Per and Linda.
I really enjoyed my stay. We had taco pizza and corona extra, and we talked and listened to rock n' roll for hours :) I got two vinyl records too; Down for the Count with Y&T (a very special edition) and a record with Keel. Cool! Love em' :) Thanks Per!
Saturday: I woke up, took a shower, ate breakfast, and then we were off to Oslo. Per and Linda drove me - they are so freakin' kind! Thanks guys! :)
In Oslo I meet my mom and dad. We did a little shopping, ate at a restaurant and went back to the hotel room just to relax, eat candy and read magazines.
Sunday: A very relaxing morning with breakfast and getting ready for the town. We went out for a walk, ate a good lunch and bought Ben and Jerry ice cream. We went back to the hotel room where I fell asleep - a very easy goin' afternoon :) Around nine we had to got to the hospital hotel where I was supposed to spend the night before the big operation. Since we were stuffed from the lunch and the ice cream, I didn't eat much the rest of the day, just some snacks. I regret it now since I can only eat fluid food for six weeks. It totally sucks!
I talked to TJ on the phone, and then I had to go to bed.
Monday: I got up at 05:45. I was supposed to get up at 05:30, but the hotel gave me a late morning call - shame on you! I took a shower to be as clean as possible before the operation and then I went to the hospital. I had to wait a bit and stuff, and I tried not to think about what I was about to go through. And bla, bla, bla, the operation took five hours, the wake-up hours was the worst and I felt sick to my stomach. I was in a blur, I threw up blood and had a really bad time, My mom and dad came by and my mom got sick too. It was a riot. She threw up in the hallway and had to leave the room many times. I looked like Hannibal Lecter, and had lips like Angelina Jolie x 100. My dad was the hero and took care of both of us.
Tuesday: I felt like shit, threw up even more blood, tried to eat, tried to walk a little, tried to sleep. My mom and dad were with me for hours (thank God). I was so scared and nervous. I didn't get much rest. In fact the best night I've had in ages was before I even went to Oslo, and I am a sleepy head and can sleep and sleep and sleep, but now? No such luck!
Wednesday: Last day at the hopsital. Final checks and stuff, free to go. I decided it would be the best to go with mom and dad to Sør-Trøndelag. We traveled with bus, plain and automobile, took about four hours (half the time it would have taken back to Nordfjordeid).
I was glad to be home, I met my Grandfather and Grandmother (I got a lot of nice presents from Thailand - they have been away for a month - thanks a lot for all the great stuff :).
I was so tired after all the traveling so I hit the sack pretty fast.
Thursday: I don't remember much. A lot of television and trying to rest. My aunt and uncle dropped by to say hello.
Friday: Hmmm... Some television, no a lot, some magazines and some computer. Trying to rest. Took a shower. Did some unpacking.
It sucks being weak and unable to do things in a normal speed.
Saturday: Even more TV and relaxation. Magazines and computer. Went for a walk.
Sunday: Been in a pretty good shape today (though I'm very tired now). Been at my Grandma and Grandpa's place. What to do for the rest of the evening? Some magazines, television and a movie.
And that's that folks. I know it was a rather long post, but I felt like writing a summary.
I've been talking to TJ on the phone too. I miss him like hell, and I can't wait till he and his parents come on Thursday to celebrate Easter with us.
It really sucks being tired all the time, looking like shit and have to eat fluid food. I can't wait till I'm good to go! I just hope I don't have any set backs, that would really break me! Don't even think about it. I can't talk it. I can't take anything! Blah!
Now I'm really tired after writing all this so I'm off. Bye!
I've been wearing a black OnePiece the past few days. Love it :)

So little time, so much to do...
I'm of to Oslo in a couple of days. I got an operation coming. I've been waiting for it for some time now (years), and now it's just around the corner. It's a nessesary operation, but it is also a kind of beauty operation. I'm going to operate my jaws and my chin to get a better profile on my face. It's complicated. But as long as it looks good in the end, and I'm still lookin' as myself, then it's okay :)
My jaws will be locked for some time, and I can only eat fluid food. Smoothies, protein shakes and stuff. And I am able to talk though :)
I'm going to stay at Per and Linda's place from Friday to Saturday, and then I'm going to meet my mom and dad and stay at a hotel til Sunday, and then I'm going to check in at the hospital where I will be staying till Wednesday. The operation is on Monday.
I can't wait til the operation is over and I can go home to TJ <3
Right now I feel like I got to much to do before I go, and that sucks. I got most things under control, but still, I want to get things done and hang out as much as I can with TJ. God, I will miss him! :( Love you!
Well, wish me luck! :) I won't be bloggin' much when I'm gone, but I'll try to drop by :)
See you later!
I get pissed...
...When people call Britney and Madonna for rock stars; they are pop stars! Designers, actors/actresses and so on are not, or will never be, rock stars either, so don't even think about it!
...When people think that grunge is the same as rock, that Nirvana is hard rock and stuff. I'm only gonna say this once; Grunge is not, I repeat, NOT rock or anything like it. It is crappy anti rock music that is so rotten and way down low on the food chain, I don't know where to start, so I better not, cuz then I don't know how to stop. Grunge can not be mixed with glam, sleaze or party rock. If you do, then you're pretty fucked in your head, cuz the grunge people laughed at people with big hair and men with make-up. So calling a fashion trend for glam grunge, is insane. Get it?
Okay, enough lecture for today. But I'll be back!
Does this look like a rock star to you?
Too much coffee, honey?
Well, hello there!
Today's work went by like *that*. I had a lot of things to do. But I was tired and I wanted coffee. I don't drink much coffee, but sometimes I just have to have a cup. A big one. I can still feel the caffein humping and dumping in my wains. I'm like Jerry Seinfeld "God, I feel great!", but I don't. I feel like shit and can't seem to relax. I'm never having coffee again!!! Yeah, right!
What elese, oh, yeah, TJ was leaving for work and I was supposed to lock the door behind him. He was closing the door, and I was reaching for the handle, but I was tired and didn't pay much attention to anything and before I knew it, my finger was caught in the middle, so I screamed and my finger started bleeding because it got a cut. Ah, fuck it, I laughed and cried, damned it hurt. It's better now. I hate myself sometimes when I don't pay attention. Better start doing that now. A lot of shit have happended because I got my head another place. Hello, anybody home????
Yesterday Sveinung Hjelle and his girlfriend dropped by to say hello. Sveinung is one of the guitarist in TJ and Geir's band Violent Power.
He told us that he and a friend are going to walk through Norway, North to South, starting late summer this year. Poor bastards, I admire their courage, but I would never have done it. On the road for four months? No way, but good luck guys! :)
Got to go!
Birgitte Bardot and Jane Birkin
In my search of inspiration when it comes to clothes and stuff, I googeled Birgitte Bardot and Jane Birkin. I found a lot of great pictures, and I'm tellin' you guys (and then I mean guys as in men), there's a lot of snacks if you google their names and take a look at some of their older pictures from the 60s and 70s ;) Any Way, here's two great pictures:
Today's two favorites:
I haven't had any favorites in a long time now, but today, there's two; the movie The Hard Way with Michael J. Fox and the band Warrant. Love, love, love! <3<3<3 Check em' out!
Is it weekend now? I sure hope so!
I've been to work today. The hours went by fast and slow, but suddenly I was home. We had e good dinner, saw the movie Like father, Like son (which included two songs with Mötley Crüe :D) and then I fell asleep for a couple of hours. I'm out, man! Lord, I am so tired, how long can this go on?
My name's Marita. I'm a musician and songwriter from Norway. I'm interested in music, books, movies, clothes and more.
