Älskling, Vi Ska Alla En Gång Dö

Greetings from Oslo! Kent are also playing at Arvika this year, it'll be the fifth time I see them live and I am still as excited as the first time.

At work we are currently heavily concerned with brand perception and becoming ambassadors for our brand. In between coffee and cakes I had a very interesting discussion. The topic of conversation was what frustrates us in life, and afterwards I was all worked up even just by talking about it.

I am at times an easily frustrated person, I set high standards for myself and expect others to live up to the same level. It usually blows over quickly, though, as people are different and I can not always expect everything to run as smoothly as I wish it would. The one instance where I give no allowances, however, is where stupidity and/or ignorance is concerned. There is nothing, and I mean _nothing_, that triggers my lack of patience more than people who will not widen their horizons, think outside the box and try to find solutions. Sitting on ones ass and hiding behind lack of knowledge is not only unacceptable, it should be outlawed, punishable by eternal damnation. Ignorance is not bliss, it is the root of all evil.

Off course we all have different selective criteria when it comes to what we want/need to learn, and some people are just not very capable. The ones that get to me are normal, breathing individuals that just can not be bothered to or do not even see the point in using their minds to develop in life, be it workwise or in private. There is no excuse for self-imposed moronity. No excuse what so ever. Please consider this first if you at any given moment should feel like going all stupid on me, because you _will_ fall from grace like a stone in water.

On happier notes, I am reading Lullaby and loving it, and in Norway they've passed a law allowing same sex couples to marry - making me weirdly proud of my home country. I got to hang out with one of my friends that I haven't seen for a year yesterday, and will now leave the office early to go shopping in real music stores before my return flight to Helsinki. Have a lovely midsummer's weekend :)

Hey :)
Finished it on my flight back from Oslo, and have to agree it was quite good. A bit too far over on the "critical of society" versus "escaping reality" for my taste, but difficult to put down and full of clever ideas. Very welcome experience after the horrific crime crap.
