Morten with a colourful drink

This weekend was my good friend Morten’s stag night/bachelor party, and since I’m the best man, I had arranged for us to play paintball, followed by dinner and going out for more drinking and dancing afterwards. The paintball was lots of fun, and I hope to arrange a trip up there again soon.

After the paintball we went for a refreshing swim in a nearby lake where the water was just perfect to wash off the dirt and sweat from the game. Then it was back to Oslo for dinner and lots of colorful drinks, we even got the Groom a ‘special dance’ which I guess is kind of obligatory 🙂

I think the day worked out really well and hope everybody had a really good time, I know I had!

My heartfelt condolences to the British people, especially to those affected by yesterday’s horrible bomb attacks in London. There is absolutely no justification for this kind of cold-blooded violence done to innocent men, women and children.

Unfortunately, this is surely not the last time we will see this, the way the world is today. Still, the people of London seem intent on getting on with their lives despite the terror:

What the fuck do you think you’re doing?

This is London. We’ve dealt with your sort before. You don’t try and pull this on us. Do you have any idea how many times our city has been attacked? Whatever you’re trying to do, it’s not going to work.

(quoted from A Letter To The Terrorists, From London.)

One of the famous 12 Apostles landmarks on the Australian coast in Victoria collapsed into the sea yesterday, leaving only a pile of limestone rubble. Actually, there’s only ever been nine of the apostles, but now they’ve been reduced to eight:

I visited and photographed the spectacular limestone cliffs twice in 2001, while studying in Melbourne, so it’s strange to think of one of them being gone. Also, rumors have surfaced that the new Superman movie is to blame 🙂
