Carola - the Musical

HEY MICKE, oh man, if i were to write a musical i would call it, Hey Micke -  You are Fångad av en stormvind (captured by a storm wind) .... a Tribute to Carola!
With major hits and a tragic story, yet with a happy happy ending. And at least 99 costume changes.
And i want me to play the young Carola and Phin to be Micke, the main characters, doing "attudes".
And Sir Ian McKellan and Judy Dench to play the older versions.
Also we need Pia Haraldsen to play the sleezy precher Runar Søgaard. They sort of look alike and the part would suit her. Though apparently she's such an appallingly horrible actor that we'll probably need an extra preacher.
I suggest Åge Alexandersen. He would rock the show.
A new HIT musical is born.

Election time in ye ole country, moving time in the new

ALRIGHT, it's now final that the red-green coalition will stay for another 4 years at the parliament.
Personally I find the whole election rather strange.
No, not necessarily because I'm stupid and ignorant, or because i'm an actress, or that i haven't lived in Norway for 3 years, but because of this: No matter what party you vote for, you never know what you're gonna get! you'll only get one big chunk of 1/3 of all the parties. So they'll all end up fighting for inside anyway. I love a good election though, and that sad face of Sponheim, the pouting of Jensen the arrogant smirk of Jens and the gleeful happy-face of Halvorsen, makes you love them like a big "happy" family you see on TV on a wednesday afternoon when everybody else is at work, and you've had 3 cups of coffee and am knitting your second mitten for the day. (yes Mari, i mean 7th heaven... or possibly Bonanza. maybe more that. All the shooting)
