  1. I don’t know why, but I read this list like a wonderful mystery story. I wish I could come up with a list like this. Honestly! Your blog is fantastic!

  2. Such a great blog! You are very talented at writing stories in a mystery style which leaves the reader guessing, it left me guessing and I still am guessing! I will be clicking follow to receive your updates. Would you mind checking out my blog – stitchmode.wordpress.com – Thank you. I am based in fashion.

  3. I know nothing about fashion. Although, I have to say that I pay attention to it a lot. For 40 years now I advise my beautiful wife what to wear and get great pleasure from doing that.

    I started to read blogs, any blogs, just to see what other people have to say. The “äbout-page” is always so interesting. I would find it pretty hard to say 60 random things about myself. I mean random but substantive. If I’d contemplate characteristic things of myself I would immediately come up with heavy, meaningful issues, which would be far from random. I liked your list. It is obviously random and yet most likely true and meaningful. What else makes us interesting but those random things that ‘others‘ put meaning in? Just like in fashion.

    I once had a good friend in Norway: Lars Hochlin. (I always thought that all people know each other in small Norway). He was originally from Tromso but settled with his wife Nora and two daughters in As near Oslo. He was one of the last professional dogsled drivers in Norway. He was in Antarctica, a mountain range there is named after him. I met him in university in Germany while he was becoming an architect. If he’s still alive he must be in his 80s now.
