You want crazy?

There are many reasons I love blogs and blogging: it is an easy way to stay in touch and keep people up to date, including the people who surely can benefit from seeing what the Nilsens are up to, but that we never really kept up with (shame on us). I firmly believe this is a good thing when far away family, old friends, acquaintances, and friends of friends are dropping by, JUST DON'T FORGET TO LEAVE A COMMENT. I am also starting to come to terms with (maybe even enjoying a little bit) the fact that total strangers can drop by, have a look and leave comments.

This voyeuristic / exhibisonist aspect of it all can be a little bit unsettling, in a creepy "plot for a bad made for TV movie" kind of way, but I honestly think that our lives are simply too mundane to really trigger too much excitement with the seedier elements of society (knock on wood).

So anyways, taking the voyeur's chair for a moment there are some very interesting, and some crazy blogs out there so if you want weird and wonderful, just put something that interests you (or something you think wouldn't) in the "Search Blogs" window, above.

I am, by the way a half-assed (well 20% assed) but accepted American according to this quiz:
You Passed the US Citizenship Test

Congratulations - you got 8 out of 10 correct!

And while you are checking the site out take the world's shortest personality test:
Your Personality Profile

You are dependable, popular, and observant.
Deep and thoughtful, you are prone to moodiness.
In fact, your emotions tend to influence everything you do.

You are unique, creative, and expressive.
You don't mind waving your freak flag every once and a while.
And lucky for you, most people find your weird ways charming!

Well, you know, it said short - NOT ACCURATE

Jeg fikk 7 av 10 og er på god vei over dammen. I tillegg er min personlighet visstnok knallrød og full av futt (FEIL) og jeg er en cheesepizza-person. Dette var gøy!

Dette var no dritt! Jeg fikk kun beskjed om at jeg FAILED! Vet ikke resultatet, så jeg må nok ta en test til...:-))

from Maria: speaking of crazy I went to see Louie Theroux today - he was signing copies of his new book "the call of the wierd". he is a very nice young man - i was a bit star struck.

Well I've only had a blog for a week now, and it is definitely unsettling.

The older I get, the more I read, and the less I remember.

So I hope it might be a linking place, where I can collect things that interest me quickly and easily, in a way I don't do in the real world.
