To bayliss and fearciuil: Absolve me, quia peccavi.

Or in the vernacular, "Bless me, for I have sinned."

It's time to have a long chat in the confessional, so I can walk around with a clear conscience.

bayliss posted a snippet about Sverre Hansen's memorial at Findagrave.com, and at that point the light went on.

These guys are the real deal. I had no clue.

As you may remember, I haven't had a TV for over 10 years, so I'm no longer in touch with much of popular culture, except for what I glean off the net. TV shows, however, tend to stay off my radar as more or less irrelevant.

I thought "Deadliest Catch" was just a show.

Well, my hat's off to them - what an incredible way to make a living, and to be able to deal with the fame at the same time. It all of a sudden explains the drooling. Huge respect to them!

Yeah, these Norske fiskere are impressive, and I'm a new fan.

I shall now eat some okra as penance...

Peccavi....
"I've Scinde"
Vovi...
"I've Oude" as Punch pointed out in the 1880's....

try some of that okra fried. Also put some into the soup. My Grandma would keep some sun dried okra around for the soup pot. You might be in for a pleasant surprize

There are worthwhile and interesting tv shows- this is one of them. Ice road truckers was good too though it was an hour's documentary stretched to 13 episodes by the same people that do the stupid car chase shows.

Absolved. Ignorance is not a sin. It is an unfortunate state of affairs but not a sin.

That's hardly right!
Eating okra isn't pennance: it's a reward.

I think some Norwegian Sardines in tomato sauce would be better. Given that deep fried okra is quite tasty. ;-)

You're braver than the "Dear Captain" Who will not touch Lutefisk.

I heard from my friend though that the smell of it being cooked is enough to fry off one's nose hairs and kill brain cells.

Can't swear to that - all that I know is that what I had served to me in Oslo was outstanding.

I'm sure it was quite good.


my friend also says the "Norwegian cannonballs" are also quite good.. It sounded like potatos boiled in Pork Shank juice and then made into balls. I don't know but I'm Irish and anything with potato sounds good to me. :)

I was referring, of course, to what you get if you're NOT lucky. ;-)

You're lucky you're a teetotaller or you would have had the same Aquavit experience I did. The stuff they gave me was herring flavour.
