Vikings, Death Metal, Abba, and Lutefisk

BG posted this diagram the other day explaining the difference between the various parts of Great Britian. Me, I've never had so much of a problem differentiating between the British isles, but nordic countries confuse the living shit out of me. Luckily, I've found this handy-dandy venn diagram to guide me through the scandanavian darkness. Before this my greatest reference point for Norway was that I have a Norwegian uncle and the knowledge that Haagen-Daazs is, in fact, an American company from the Bronx.

Also, it's heartening to note that death metal and lutefisk have the ability to bring countries together.

Know what I love? How your timestamps paired with the fact that I always SEE you on Blogger means that you are writing posts whilst I am over, sitting on your couch.

Me creating my own dialogue for "Sleeping With the Enemy" should be entertainment enough for you.
