Wonders of Modern Technology

This week Bjarni is in Texas for a conference. And even though he is so far away (and we miss him!), it does sort of feel like he is just around the corner thanks to the wonders of modern technology.

Skyping:
(Silja is excited Bjarni is now in the computer. The computer is interesting enough in the first place, but to see someone she knows in there is ... wuahh..)

Texting:
B: I'm at Target. Do you want anything from here?
D: Listerine [mouthwash] with vanilla.
...
B: They don't have vanilla?!
D: Then nevermind. How about some Burt's Bees. A lip balm...
B: OK

(I think my wishes are quite modest considering all the good things one can get at Target! Come to think if it though, I do realize mouthwash of all things is a little strange...)

    Hi, Dorte! I'm a fan of your blog!

    My husband visited LA from 18th to 24th Feb. My daughter and I skyped with him, too! She looked like a little confused:)
    I asked him to get AVEDA's cleansing cream and Trader Joe's dried fruits, ha ha!

    -Tomoko: Oh such a nice surprise to hear from you. I completely forgot about Aveda. That used to be my favorite. Bjarni is on his way back to Europe now, so have to wait with that for next time ;) Take care and konnichiwa to little Risa.
