Who am I?
I'm a Dane -- that is, from Denmark. There is an excellent National Geographic article about "Civilized Denmark" to be found out there (hint: you might search the web for "Civilized Denmark"). To read it and see the wonderful pictures accompanying it, you'll have to buy or borrow the July 1998 issue of the magazine. Highly recommended!
In fact, here's an absolutely wonderful quote from that same article:
Sober-faced Danes queue at the bus stop in the rain, which they do not flinch at, and it dawns on you that a daylong rain is not unusual, this is a North Atlantic winter. The sun won't shine tomorrow, maybe not the next day. You have arrived in a land where Christmas means more than in, say, Barbados; it is the last outpost on the long grim trek toward spring. Dark gray sky at noon, dull brown brick all around, dead trees, broken glass in the gutter, and you, sorry you, your head like a sponge full of mud. At first you think it's jet lag, and then you realize that everyone else feels this way too. Welcome to the birthplace of existentialism.
I like stuff like:
- Fleetwood Mac
- Bob James
- TV-2, "Denmarks most boring band"
- Stan Getz
- Cæcilie Norby
- The Doky Brothers
- Katrine Madsen "If i were a tenor player I would want to play like Ben Webster. If I played the trumpet I would want to play like Chet Baker. And I say: If I were a singer I would really like to sing like Katrine Madsen..."
- The Blue Junction. Real Blues Award: Best European Blues Recording 2000!!!
The links in the list are not the strongest collection, I guess -- but good for starting points. Some are in Danish -- after all, some of the artists are Danish...
If there are some of these you haven’t got a clue about, don’t worry. Chances are that you’re just not Danish enough. Or you might be significantly younger than me. Or -- you might in fact have a different taste in music...
My H2G2 CV:
A proud Salonista!
The Salonistas? An irresistible force that stops frequently for tea breaks . Or maybe, more precisely described as on the main page for Lil's Atelier: "A core group of really interesting humans, animals, insects, uncategorisables, ETs and desperados with substantive things to say on an incredibly wide range of Subjects".
It is really true, as you are kindly reminded on every page of every thread, that "Social Life Begins and Ends With Etiquette". One warning: We do tend to talk a lot - so if you fear backlog, please be advised to get over that fear...
Now with proper day naming!

Always has been called Thursday,
always will be called Thursday
A fine morning?
It might well be a fine morning. In fact, most of them are . However, in case it isn't, it just isn't. OK? Capisce? At P.U.D.D.I.N.G. we deserve every right to be grumpy about it!

ex-ACEThe badge below is a reminder from the time I "did time" as an ACE, or Assistent Community Editor. The reason for my escape ;) was quite simply that I did not feel I had the time to do the job in a manner I found appropriate. Too many people to greet, too little time...
The ACES are complete volunteers and spend their free time helping and making people feel welcome, so please be nice to them if you see them. You can find them using the tools below - I'm sure they'd appreciate a hello and well done!
