Minister shminister.

Norway's Minister of Defence is in Afghanistan to take home 4 of our soldiers that died in combat. I think that's honorable & they deserve nothing less. BUT my reaction to the article in the newspaper VG this morning got completely overshadowed by the fact that it looked like a housewife of some sorts had bewildered herself into Mazar-e Sharif. The way she was dressed is DISRESPECTFUL - both to the deceased & the country she's in. Not to mention she's the Minister of Defence. Shouldn't that alone have made her think about what message she wanna get through? I don't think she would meet heads of state in a vacation outfit...so why the f**k isn't she showing our soldiers the same respect?!

...embarrassing.

Midsummer's eve

I'll seek a four-leaved shamrock in all thy fairy dells,
And if I find the charmed leaves, oh, how I'll weave my spells!

Just wanted to wish everyone an amazing midsummer's eve. ^^


My broom
with its tufts of roses
beckoning at the black,
with its crown of thistles,
prickling the sky,
with its carved crescents
winking silverly
at Diana,
with its thick brush
of peacock feathers
sweeping the night,
with its triangle
of glinting fur.

I ride
over the roofs
of doom.
