Happy 17 May!
For most of you this is just an ordinary day, but for all of us Norwegians out there, it's our national day! This date in 1814, Norway got their own constitution. And how do we celebrate this? With hotdogs, and boy, I won't be eating hotdogs again for a year. Seriously!
Anyway, been a pretty good day. Got up early to see my cousins walk in the kids parade, where everyone between the ages of 0-19 and people in marching bands walk in a parade wearing pretty clothes and sing a bunch of songs. Then if they're lucky enough to live in the capital, they get to wave to the royal family. I'm not so lucky and instead live in a rather small city. Note that I'm not really upset about that, just being stupid.
My oldest cousin is ten, and he didn't want to attend the school thing at his sister's school, so the two of us went to the fair that comes around every year. We discovered the Hulk has been replaced with Spiderman. Okay, more to explain. This fair brings the same rides about every year, though occasionally they switch it up a little. The Hulk is a ride known in our town for being awesome yet extremely painful. Because you are pushed against a steel railing. Spiderman is pretty much the same ride, but it's padded! So still awesome but not painful.
When it started raining we took the disco cups, which is basically tea cups but there's disco music, because there's a roof over that ride. It rained for a long time and we both ended up throwing up. Then, as the intelligent beings we are, we went and bought cotton candy and ice cream. Then we got free hotdogs. Then more ice cream. Then some more rides. He threw up again. One more ice cream each.
Then we went to grandma and grandpa who fed us, guess what, hotdogs and ice cream. Then it got boring with all the adults, so I took both my cousins to my place where we played Little Big Planet. Then the youngest got tired and I took her home, returned, and then we played Modern Warfare instead. But being only 10, he got tired at 9:30 so I took him home as well.
I didn't feel like going home yet, so I walked to my friend's job because I knew she would be off at ten. We rented a movie, Repo Men, an okay movie, then I went home and collapsed on my bed and struggled to get the laptop and write this.
In conclusion, it's been a good day
