Headed East...

I am headed to Norway today (June 14) for 2 weeks to meet my boyfriend's maternal side of the family. Egads. This is the first time he has brought a girl home to meet them, and let me just say, they are REALLY excited to see if I actually exist. I have been warned that there will be a lot of drinking going on, as it is rumored that the family, due to outrageous pricing of liquor in Norway, makes their own moonshine in their basement (I have been practicing binge drinking to build up my tolerance.) I might also have to eat things I have never eaten before, like moose, whale, and fish that still have eyeballs.

Not that I can't adapt, but remember that story about the mice who visit each others' home so they can see how the other one lives- "The City Mouse and the Country Mouse"? Well, folks, I am a city mouse. (Ok, maybe that story is not the best example, since the city mouse almost gets the country mouse killed 3 times, but that is beside the point...) I am not the type of high maintenance "city mouse" that needs a hair dryer and makeup and lots of shoes. But I am the type of high maintenance that doesn't pee in the woods, eat things that look like they did when they were alive or like people laughing at me when I try speaking a foreign language. But, ladies and gentleman, I will do all of this in the name of Love. For two weeks. With no internet or cell phone. L-O-V-E. LOVE. Whatever will MySpace do without my constant survey posting?!?

We are going just in time for the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. It is rumored that the sun sets after 11pm in the part of the country that we will be at. It is supposed to be sunny and in the 70s most of the time, very much like weather in my hometown of San Diego. And I will have nothing to do but relax, eat, drink and be with my favorite person in the world. Nothing could be better, except perhaps having the Padres win the World Series.

So when I don't do a blog for a few days, don't freak out! I promise to back in rare form by the end of the month.

Happy Summer to everyone!
