Here are some of the pictures from last month and my trek through the states (only a couple eastern and midwestern ones). There are pictures of my niece, Constance (below) and my nephew, Blake.

There's a also a picture of the flowers that Lars sent me while I was in New York by myself and pictures of us at the Lousianna museum (just outside Copenhagen) the day before his birthday. When went to dinner at Soren K in the Black Diamond library in Copenhagen (great suggestion, thanks Dan!) and saw a Duran Duran jam. Fun. I spent my birthday, yesterday, in all day meetings and on a plane. Boo-hoo. But Lars has planned a trip for us in Prague as my birthday present! Yay!

I was hoping that my last three week trip to the states would be the last of my business travelling for 2002, but no such luck. At least I got to see lots of friends and family. I took my new video camera along, and put together a little movie I like to call, "Say Hello". Please keep in mind that it is my first cinematic attempt... and it's only 1M!

I was back in the big apple last week, for work and for Edward and Sarah's wedding.
It's still a little strange going back there, New York doesn't quite seem like itself...

While playing with iPhoto, I realized that I could export my photos to a QT slideshow movie. And, I could add one of my MP3s from iTunes. I love Apple. The only problem is that it's 5.5M, so it may take awhile to download. Don't do it if you're on dial-up. It's the same pictures that are on the site in the previous entry (there are a few extras).

Vacation in Greece

This week was back to work after my vacation in Greece... It was great! I went with Lars and Sune, Lars' friend, and Jette, Sune's girlfriend. I took lots of pictures.

At the beginning of June, I had to go to Milan for work. I did get a little time to see the city and took just a few pictures. I also have pictures of Vinay in Denmark... we went to dinner in Kolding with Danny, Sanne and Lars.

TOO MUCH SPAM!! I can't take it anymore, so I am going to retire for a little while. If you want to contact me, send email to

Finally! An update!

Pictures of Tomas, Kendra, Gabe, Daniel and Lauriann visiting Denmark from last month. Kendra, Tomas and I visited the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde and went to Copenhagen. Lauriann was here just in time for Gert's party.

I thought this was worth a blog. It turns out that I am only 46% bitch, which according to is still 72% higher than most people. The only consolation I have is that Tomas Clark is a bigger bitch than I am (48%).

The Spark is a site with lots of fun tests like that. The main test is The Personality Test, and according to that I'm a bitch, actually, I'm a POLITICIAN ( Dominant Extroverted Abstract Thinker ). You can also add names and see how compatible you are with friends and your friends' friends. If you want to see if you're compatible with this bitch, use my email address.

I overwrote my blog! Well, I know these were pictures of my apartment, Kolding and my *sniff* Audi A3 that I am returning this week because I bought a Renault Megane. (6/19/02)

Dan Spikol came into the office the other day and snapped this picture of me at my new desk.

My first week in Denmark...

I've been staying in Billund this week, at a place called Gravhøven, which is impossible to pronounce and apparently means "tomb" in English. I have a bedroom/bath in a 4 room dorm (sharing a living room and kitchen). Right now, there are only 3 of us living there, a guy from LEGO in Enfield, CT and someone who works for Avis.

This week-end, I went to Kolding to look at an apartment and check out the city. It's about 40 K from Billund and it has a castle that's about 700 years old. I’ve decided to take the apartment and I may be able to move in next week... my furniture won’t show up until the end of April, but I wouldn't be in the "tomb" anymore...

Saturday night, Sanne took me out in Vejle with lots of other LEGO was so much fun that I only remembered that I had my camera for one picture...

I'm alone in the office today, doing the last bit of packing. Once this is done, I'll have Saturday and Sunday to relax a bit before getting on the plane Monday at 5pm. I'm really looking forward to some down time, I must say.

The movers are here today and it's freaking me out. Two days had been scheduled for this move, but it looks like they are nearly done. Tomorrow, the Salvation Army is coming to pick up the furniture, etc. that I'm not taking. Almost done...

More pictures... My sister Karen and my nephew Blake came to New York for a visit. It was the week-end after I got back from Copenhagen, so I was pretty jet lagged and had lots of work to do. Karen and Blake dropped me off at the office after brunch...Blake, who is seven, didn't want to leave...I got him hooked on to Bionicle. When they left, they went straight to FAO Swartz to buy some Bohrok.

Karen took some great pictures of the view outside the windows of the LEGO Direct office. Not the same view I'll have in Billund...

The movers are coming on Wednesday, but instead of packing I decided to post the pictures from my last trip to Denmark.

About three weeks ago, there was a Bionicle team meeting in Copenhagen that Jeremy (who works with me on and I attended. The day before the meeting, we visited Little Device who is developing a new game for the site, and had dinner with Dan, Anders and Nils.

The next night, after the Bionicle meeting, everyone went to dinner. It ended up being quite a fun night.

Thursday night was the big LEGO going away party at the Screening Room. My co-worker, Danny, is going back to Billund and his last day in NY is next week too, so it was a combined send off. Of course, I ended up getting pretty mushy (I'm really going to miss seeing my friends in this office), but not quite as mushy as Danny...

As I was starting to pack this week-end, not only did I produce 5 garbage bags full of clothes and shoes to get rid of, I found some old pictures of Jim and I back in the Day. This picture was taken at a club opening in 1993. I don’t remember which club... it’s when I was working at New York Magazine and I had a press pass… *sigh*

I was going over the Brooklyn Bridge tonight, and looked back to see the "tribute of lights". Rationally, I understand it. But the glow at "ground zero" only makes me think of the days and weeks after the attack. It makes me remember, so intensely, the shock, fear and sadness I felt when it happened. I know there are many people who have been much more effected by this than I have, and have lost people they knew and loved. I can't imagine. Even without any personal loss, I can't seem to get back to normal.

People seem to be amazed that I can leave New York for a place that’s...well... out of the way. I’m fine with moving to a place doesn’t have skyscrapers that people want to fly into. I’m fine with a place that’s a little less “exciting” than New York city.

Jim's Visit

Jim Kendall has been visiting from Madrid for the past few days and last night we had a chance to meet up with Edward, Sarah and Alba.

Saturday, March 16, 2002

The countdown to the move has begun. All my stuff will be packed up and I'll be out of my apartment by March 28th. Then I'm on a plane to Billund, Denmark on April 1st.
