Ima Norwegian

Posted by Geeky Swedes on May 6th, 2012

Funny guys Tim Hunter and Frank Shiers bring a little Scandihoovian humor to MyBallard in a weekly cartoon called Ima Norwegian.

Ima Norwegian is a life-time Ballard resident who lives in a modest home with her husband Lars. Both are Ballard High School graduates (Go Beavers) but you’ll have to really dig to figure out which year they graduated. Ima won’t willingly offer her age, but will admit that it rhymes with ‘nifty-something’. Ima said she would only appear in the cartoon if we featured her in her traditional Norwegian bunad. And remember, she only needs her glasses for reading. Her two kids are out on their own, in the area and close enough that they occasionally stop by. Ima believes it’s because they miss their mother and they just happened to also need to do their laundry.

    Almost all of the things you claim happens to be supprisingly legitimate and it makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. This article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this specific issue goes. However at this time there is actually one position I am not really too comfortable with so while I attempt to reconcile that with the main idea of your position, permit me observe exactly what all the rest of your visitors have to point out.Very well done.

    Throughout the grand pattern of things you actually secure a B+ for effort. Exactly where you actually confused me was on all the facts. You know, people say, the devil is in the details… And it could not be much more true right here. Having said that, permit me say to you precisely what did deliver the results. The writing is very powerful which is probably the reason why I am making an effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can notice a jumps in reason you come up with, I am not certain of how you seem to unite your details which inturn produce the actual conclusion. For now I will yield to your position however wish in the future you actually link your dots much better.

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  • 12 Oscar Hasse // Dec 25, 2014 at 3:32 am

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
