Identity thief with white cheddar seasoning.

March 18, 2013

Went to see “Identity thief” at the Kino Stavanger yesterday.

I thought it would be hilariously funny, but unfortunately, it was only a bit funny…sometimes… and the rest of it was pretty boring.

What I’ve discovered is:

– The cinema halls have a comfortable temperature; no freezing to death as in many movie theaters elsewhere.

– Norwegians love their candy and specially licorice and lots of it! (Salty or sweet, soft or hard and in all colors or shapes)

– Another trend I haven’t seen anywhere else before: popcorn seasoning.


Buy your popcorn and then choose from a variety of seasonings to add for free.

So although Norwegians in general look rather fit and slim (I’m guessing power-walks, jogging, hiking and skiing!), they do have a sweet tooth.

The numerous T.V.- shows about who can bake the best cakes, cupcakes, macaroons, meringue tarts etc. confirm that.

So do try this part of the culture, but never one without the other; a delicious piece of cake with a jog around the lake will do fine 🙂

When you go jogging though, don’t forget the woolen underwear, hats, gloves and all other accessories, because the newspaper announces “ISKALD” (ice cold) until after Easter. I’ve started to love the very accurate hourly weather forecast on (not only for Norway, but worldwide and very precise!)

I specifically enjoy the “feels like” feature, which incorporates effects of wind and other conditions…Always fun to know it will be minus 8 (feels like minus 16)!

Right now it’s 0 degrees (feels like -7).

After an hour it will be 1 (feels like -6).

I am definitely waiting for 2 (feels like -5) before going out! 🙂
