**Walks into bar - as doors open 'What's The Frequency, Kenneth?' starts playing**



Sometimes it great to do something very spontane! Like when someone you don't really know knocks on your door and asks if you want to go out, and you just say 'yes' without thinking!

**Goes up to bar and makes a cup of tea and puts Madrugada on the jukebox**

Listen to Madrugada here!

Hey Dorthe!



*strolls over to bar, pours herself some orange juice (with a bit of vodka mixed in, of course)*

I did it. I caved and bought myself a ticket for The White Stripes. God, I'm a weak bastard.

*goes back to polishing up resume*

Hello April!

Don't think about that - think about how great the concert will be! I'm sure it will be worth all the money and more than that too...

Oh, I definitely won't be thinking about money when they hit the stage.

I just tend to worry too much, especially at times like these!

Still on your REM high?

**Pulls hot tub out of storage room**

5 weeks...

**Strips down to bikini and jumps into hot tub**

Since LB is very occupied today, I'll need someone else to entertain me...



Perhaps...

I think I'm on a combined "I just saw R.E.M. and will see U2 in 5 weeks"-high right now!

They were actually warm-up band for R.E.M. in Oslo a few days ago - Michael Stipe came on stage when they'd finished and !

Edited to add: "Kids..." have been a big hit up here all spring - played everywhere!

...and, Hello Ewen!

You're welcome!

I'd never, ever heard about them before one of my friends took me to a concert a few months ago - and I was really blow away!

If you click on the "E-card by EMI Sweden" and then on "MUSIK" then you can hear some more tracks from their latest album...

It was the intro to "Hard To Come Back" that reminded me of "Spanish Eyes" when I heard it live (not so much the album version) and had never head the song before... I was thinking "Oh, this band is fantastic - and they're playing U2-songs too!"
