Trip to Norway -- back safely, if not entirely sanely

I have once again returned to my native shores, y'all. I will post, in dribs and drabs, updates and recaps of our two week excursion to Norway. In the meantime, I will lead off with the most negative and pessimistic recap I can possibly conceive of, one I shared with my wife already (who, by the way, I told at some point during the trip that my next wife was going to not only be a local girl but an orphan to boot).

The trip can be summed up as follows:

I told the driver who was coming to pick us up to take us to the airport to begin our voyage to basically fuck off after he called 5 minutes before we were supposed to leave and told me, after I asked, that he was more like an hour away.

I told one of my brothers-in-law to go fuck himself as we were saying goodbye the night before leaving to come back to the States (more on why later). I assured him that I meant it in the nicest possible way, though, as I shook his hand goodbye.

In between those two events, it rained and I gained 8-10 pounds.

Sounds idyllic, doesn't it?

Well, there were some nice moments, but I will blog about those later.

Nice, sooooooo nice, to be home.

ah, yes the great American family vacation. It always sucks.... even when the family isn't in America.

Glad you're all back safely. Can't wait to hear about some of those nice moments.

Good to have you back. I've been wondering about you. I can't wait to hear more about the trip. I also can't wait to hear what VB said about that comment about your next wife. ;-) I have a feeling it was something incredibly witty. Hugs to you all.

Hey, my relatives there apparently own an island on the western shore that they spend summers. Maybe I can ensure your next trip is better by stranding you on the island. LOL

Welcome back!

You said the F word...Twice! Cool.

I always wanted to tell my ex-wife's sister to fuck off, but never got the chance. She outweighed me by about 100 lbs, so not doing it might have been a wise choice.
