amabroni is DOWN

The internet where I live has decided to stop working. God only knows when my sloooow house owner decides to do something about that.

Until then....Nothing.

The enemy returns...

All of a sudden it came again.
A long lost friend who is not a friend but an enemy.
Yesterday he wasn't here.
This afternoon he came slowly, but surely. I knew it was him all along.
Shit, I thought.
It started getting difficult to breath.
My mouth dried up.
My mood dropped.
I knew hell was ahead.
It feels better standing up, but it's night and I have to sleep.
And the enemy will be with me all night and probably all week, and I wont have a good sleep.

I got a stuffed nose.

Damn those bacteria infested kids in the nursery...

Those who read my blog, but who are not part of might wonder when I have some strange posts that start with "a view out of Ghana", so in lack of anything else to blog about I decided to explain this.

Once upon a time in Ghana, a Swedish girl lived and blogged about her life. One day she had the idea of searching for other people who were blogging out of Ghana. It surely had to be someone else than me, she thought. And she was right. She found blog after blog and contacted the authors, and it resulted in a decision to meet up and try to form something out of it. The first meeting was very interesting - people from all kinds of backgrounds, with all kind of reasons decided to meet, just on the basis that they were all blogging and all living in Ghana. We talked about reasons for blogging, and weeks went by and more and more people joined in. I have now left Ghana, but I'm still a part of it and get emails all the time about new bloggers who have joined in, and information about what to do to use the blogging community in a concrete way in Ghana.
After Blog Action Day 15th October 2008, where bloggers all over the world were encouraged to blog about a common topic; poverty, we also decided that one way of making ghanablogging a bit organized, was to have our own monthly Blog Action Day where we all blog on the same title/topic. So each 15th of every month we choose a common topic and those who want, blog about it. It's very cool to see how differently we can all angle a post on the with the same title: A view out of Ghana: and then the topic. So watch out for February 15th for a very well chosen topic if you ask me!

He's a gonner!

Yngvild is watching a beautiful sight as George W. Bush is flying away from Washington D.C in a helicopter with his wife Laura.

Good luck, Barrack Husein Obama. You're gonna need it. Paa.

Love love love..

Auntie Yngvild has been babysitting her 3 month old nephew. He likes being at his auntie cos then he can watch Oprah and all his other favorite programs while she is entertaining herself. When he starts crying, all you have to do is let him look at the screen from which sound and light and colour beams at him.

Gotta love him!

If I were a proper blogger, I'd be able to write something today


I couldn't think of anything clever to write on our topic at ghanablogging this time.

I'm ashamed.

Instead I spent my evening with these two beautiful people. Time well spent.

Most embarrassing moment of the day

I walked into my very very new colleague relieving HIMself in the bathroom. Yes. Thats what he did and that's what I saw and now its more awkward then ever before to talk to him. He should have locked the door if you ask me.
Cant wait to go to work tomorrow...

New town.
New job.
New apartement.
Too little time to write, and too little time to get inspiration to write.

It will come.
