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.

    Awesome read. I just passed this onto a buddy who was doing some research on that. He actually bought me lunch since I found it for him! Thus let me rephrase: Thank you for lunch!

    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.

    In this awesome pattern of things you secure a B+ just for effort. Where you actually misplaced me was on the details. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be much more correct in this article. Having said that, allow me tell you exactly what did give good results. The article (parts of it) is pretty persuasive and this is probably the reason why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can certainly notice the leaps in logic you come up with, I am not certain of exactly how you appear to connect your points that help to make the final result. For right now I shall subscribe to your issue however trust in the future you actually connect your facts much better.
