Ingen reklamer tak

From Not Quite Danish, 4 year ago, Read 1 times. Similar articles

There's something about me and the post office that doesn't marry. It never works out. Like the important document I posted 'express' at a ridiculous amount of money, back to Melbourne that took two weeks to get there.Growing tired of coming home and finding much of the world's forests jammed through our front door, I decided enough was enough and headed off to Dansk Posten to remedy the situation.In Denmark, you have to have an official sticker saying you don't want junk mail. You can't just... Read more

Get ready for Sunday

From Not Quite Danish, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

You know how it goes about New York, the city that never closes or sleeps' Well, Copenhagen does. It's mad scramble on Saturdays to get everything done you need to do before the shops shut. Except for the first Sunday of the month. This sends everyone into a fevered frenzy and for some really odd reason, that includes me. Even weirder still, is that I get something on the lines of excitement building when I rarely make use of the day retail-wise anyway. On Thursday night at Føtex (the... Read more

European rivalry

From Not Quite Danish, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

I wasn't going to write about this because I thought it a bit too provoking but seeing the EU elections are tomorrow, I thought I may as well.During a recent trip to Germany, I went to a party. Over the hours, I was introduced to a number of people and twice, had I been easily offended, I would have been. I was introduced as having come in from Copenhagen and talk turned to Denmark. I actually didn't get a chance to point out that while, yes, I had come from Copenhagen, I wasn't Danish. But... Read more

You know when you freak yourself out a bit'

From Not Quite Danish, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

I woke up yesterday morning and got ready for work and left at 7:40. Immediately the world felt different outside. As you can see from the pic, the main drag where I live was virtually deserted. My neurons zapped into action. Was it Saturday' I wasn't sure. Had I already done that work I'd planned to do' I didn't think I had, but maybe I did. Or had something happened like in The Day of the Triffids' Were the few people driving and cycling like nothing was wrong just in denial' After a quick... Read more

Who's better' Boys or girls'

From Not Quite Danish, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

Now I know every single member of the Danish royal family intimately, thanks to Se og hør, which gets delivered along with similar magazines to our office every Thursday, I've come to take an interest in what they're all up to, considering some of the 50+% tax I pay is helping them live the kind of life I am glad someone does. I quite like them, well most of them, although my opinion is only made up from what I see and read. But they help Denmark work the way it does, so I am glad they are... Read more

My new Danish best friend

From Not Quite Danish, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

I wondered if I'd make a best friend in Denmark. I have. I just didn't think our first encounter would leave me feeling happily sickish the next day. In a few minutes, they helped me forget about the nagging back that's annoyed me this week, and while not saying a word, somehow completely won me over with a smooth, tempting manner - even the smell - and the way they made my mouth feel. Our encounter went on for over an hour. I was insatiable and couldn't get enough. I could almost do it all... Read more

What's a 'bogan' in Danish'

From Not Quite Danish, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

In Australia, we call a certain type of person a 'bogan' . I think Americans say redneck. In the UK they say 'yobbo' but that get's a bit confusing because a 'yobbo' or 'yob' in Australia is someone who's very aggressive, as well as lacking culture and has no social skills and doesn't want them.I have to admit, I haven't come across many in Denmark but I can't believe there's not a slang Danish word for them. The closest I've found is 'bisse' but someone told me that's not really right... Read more

Bornholm, bornholm, bornholm

From Not Quite Danish, 4 year ago, Read 3 times. Similar articles

Du, min dejlige ferieø... or something like that. That's the song they play on the ferry over to this rather special Danish island. I spent the last long weekend there. Unfortunately, because we're busy at work, I came back on Monday, while NQDII is staying for the week with Hamish.Anyway, I digress. Everyone told me Bornholm was 'special', so I couldn't wait to see it, albeit briefly. And it really was. They weren't kidding - fantastic beaches, great food, super countryside and lots and...

Excuses, excuses

From Not Quite Danish, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

Okay. Again, it's been a while. I was only thinking today, why' Well, the reason is, with this bloody crisis (thank you, certain CEOs, stockbrokers, dodgy money lenders and greedy people in general), many people have had to work longer hours than usual. That includes me. While I love what I do, it's not that much of a chore but it does cut into one's 'life' - such as it is. And, to be frank, after hours typing away at a keyboard, the last thing I want to do is come home and write more. So... Read more

The park is full of surprises

From Not Quite Danish, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

So far this year there's not been that much to laugh about. Apart from everything else I've written about, I also had a DKK 7,500 bill from the tandlæge. However, I did get a good laugh yesterday.We organised to meet a friend and her dog at Frederiksberg gardens to have a run around with Hamish. The dogs had a ball (literally) for around two hours and were absolutely exhausted by the end.When we go to the park, we take a few of those black doggy poo bags and stuff one with treats.NQDII asked...
