Demi it's not

Now that I'm 23 weeks (or 58%) pregnant, there's no hiding it. Here's a picture taken during Christmas showing off my pregnant tummy.

Emma's first picture

For those of you who don't know, Lars and I are expecting a baby in April! It's a girl, and we've already decided to name her Emma, after my late mother.

Today I had a routine 18 week ultrasound, so here is Emma's first picture! Clicking on the thumbnail will take you to a larger image.

Sadie, Married Lady!

On Friday, September10th, Lars and I got married at the Kolding City Hall!

It was a very low-key ceremony, on an unusually beautiful day in Denmark. We had a quiet lunch after with Lars' family and a few friends, and then came back to our house for a barbeque. We have a trip to the U.S. planned in October, so we can celebrate with my friends and family (and have a little honeymoon).

Brush with Fame

One evening, after spending all day at the BIONICLE booth at Comic-con, I got my picture taken with Corey Feldman. How cool is that?!

Danish Smanish

Trying to learn this language is killing me! I literally couldn't bring myself to go to class tonight, I always come home with such a headache. Who am I kidding with this? Grr.

Rob Brezsny's Real Astrology

Every Wednesday, I get my Real Astrology fix via email. Rob Brezsny has a gift for creating amusing, thought provoking and quirky horoscopes. I'm determined to make this week's come true. I'm overdue for some excessive laughing...

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Laughter Yoga is a new international phenomenon that began in India. Practitioners gather together regularly to engage in half-hour sessions of nonstop chuckling, chortling, and cackling. Yogic breathing exercises supplement the therapeutic value. The month of June will be an ideal time for you Sagittarians to launch local branches of these Laughter Clubs. The astrological omens say you'll be running into an extraordinary number of funny things. That's lucky for you, because you have a lot of accumulated tension to purge, and the best way to do that is by having hilarious experiences.

Dead Drunk Danes

While googling for a painting I had seen in the Louisana Museum in Copenhagen with that brillant name, I came accross this article: Dead Drunk Danes: And Other Observations from LEGOLAND. I wish I had written it... I've had many of the same observations. I highly recommend it.

As for the painting by Asgar Jorn, DĂžddrukne danskere, I found it on Louisana's web site in its own pop up window.

Whitsun Week-end

The past few weeks have been cold, rainy, difficult and emotional. Work has been... more frustrating than usual (as per my previous post). But today is a bank holiday in Denmark, which makes for a much needed long week-end. The holiday is Whitsun, which is another name for Pentecost, and is held on the seventh Sunday after Easter. It's a holiday in a number of European countries. And the weather has been glorious!

Last Sunday I ran a 5K race (Lars ran the 10K version of the same race), which has gotten me inspired really start running again. I have a 5K route through the forest near our house and with this wonderful weather it's been a great revitilizing experience. I walked the route yesterday and took some pictures.

It's good to remember there's more to life than LEGO...

The end of an era...

Lars and I hosted a party for the BIONICLE team in April. It was while shooting the extra footage for the DVD, so everyone was around. This was just before everything started going to hell, but just after I found out that it would. The changes that have been made on the team were the worst possible changes... definitely for me personally, but I also think for BIONICLE in general.

Well, it was an amazing thing to be a part of for the past four years. I believe that time has come to run, not walk, to my next adventure. Very sad.

The producer of the extra DVD content, Pam, has a very cool blog herself

Danish Easter Lunch

We had another Easter lunch this year... it looks like it's becoming a tradition (a few pics from last year are in the May 2003 archive). Everyone had a lot of fun with the camera, so I had to edit the pictures so Chez Leah wouldn't look like a porn site! Those crazy Danes.

Look, it's my boyfriend!

Anniversary in Hamburg

Lars and I spent last week-end in Hamburg for our 2 year anniversary. I was a little surprised by how sophisticated it seemed--I guess I expected a smaller town feel. We went to some really nice restaurants; there was good shopping and a pretty significant art museum, Hamburger Kunsthalle, that current has a very nice a Dutch genre exhibition.

Trip to Florida

Lars and I went to Florida to visit family during our Christmas break. We also went to Miami for New Years and to Key West.
