Not a celebrity just a plain alien...

We made a visit to our favorite furniture store (part from IKEA), Scandinavian Designs the other day. When we checked out (getting a bed frame in maple for the Daughter) I asked about a bookshelf we had gotten a few years ago, wondering if it was possible to buy an extra shelf. "I remember selling that to you, it was me", the sales person said.

It was four years ago.

I guess maybe you make an impression, walking around a store like Scandinavian Designs, speaking like the Swedish chef in the Muppet Show, obviously from somewhere in Scandinavia... so much of an impression they remember you four years later...

I can't make up my mind on weather this is good or bad...

Nice that they remembered you!
Was it a guy?!! Ha ha!They always remember blonds!!!
When I have tried to speak Swedish I don't seem to sound deep enough.
Or is it only the guys who make those deep sounds or should i find another website to learn from?!!

Nika - I guess so... I'm really curious how many "Scandinavians actually" shop there...

Isle Dance - ok! ;-)

Miranda - it was a guy... ;-) Maybe we need to find you another website... ;-)

When my husband went to the optician in our town in Germany to order new contacts for me, he only needed to say my last name and the guy at the counter said: "aha, Swedish, right? Long, blond hair?". Apperently I am "the Swedish client" :)
