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.

Housewarming Party

We had our first of a few successful parties here at Bekkasinvej in February. It was a housewarming party and Lars made his famous Danish margaritas... Here are some pictures.

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.
