    What a fun day it was. Yesterday I spent the day with my wives half brother who is musically gifted. He is such a great guy, and he agreed to help me create a Nerd Of The North song. He is usually composing rock and metal music. I told him I was interested in making a sort of hip hop pop song. I figured he wouldn't be interested because it wasn't rock or metal, but to my surprise he agreed to come help me out! He provided the equipment, the song creation skills and his guitars. He gave me full charge to direct the song. I sang, wrote the lyrics, chose the styles, and made all of the decisions. We spent the whole day, over 8 hours working on it. The final product is a little bit funky and silly, but at the same time pretty cool I think. It doesn't reflect the work he usually does, but I could not have done it without him. It was also great hanging with my wives half brother. He is a really cool guy! The final product still needs a little polishing, but here are the lyrics and a small clip of the guitar part! I can't wait to show you the finished song!

    It doesn't get any easier. I have put myself into a situation that seems hard to climb out of. We have created so much debt that there is no chance to quit working the night shift. I get extra pay for working on the night shift called "kvelds tilleg" . Without it, my paycheck wouldn't be so pretty. Grocery store workers don't get paid very well in general, but at the same time work very hard for their paycheck. At least I do. It has gotten so bad that I can't muster up the motivation to go to the gym. I don't have the willpower to eat healthy right now. I get comfort from eating whatever I feel like. I have to go to work and smile and be friendly all day despite being tired and worn out. I can barely even fake smile anymore. I hope I can find a solution soon.

    This week has been my wives birth week. Not birthday, but birth week because we have been celebrating it for several days now. Each day we are presented with more cake. Today was the grande finale of cakes and  after a BBQ Ribs and corn on the cob dinner, we feasted on cake GALORE!


     

    These cakes were so mouth watering, I just can't bare to waste a single drop of it, so it is official, the diet won't resume until we have eaten all of this cake. That means at least 1 week of pure delicious cake. For now its cake cake and more cake every day for desert! 





     

    I could actually feel the sugar rush as I eat these cakes. Each bight makes me want more bights and the more bights I take, the more I can feel my skin tingling and my face getting hot. Do you like cake?

  • I got a new BFF and it's not Pikachu

  • Publisert: 14.09.2016, 14:46
  • Kategori: Blogg


  •  

    For as long as I can remember Pokemon, Pikachu has always been my favorite. Throughout my 28 levels of Pokemon go she has been my all time favorite. They even came out with this new Buddy system. Me and Pikachu have been BFF ever since, but she has been eating too much candy. She went on an eating binge and ate 49 candies to be exact.



     

    I told Pikachu that if she eats one more candy, we are through. Sure enough after just one more kilometer, Pikachu ate another candy. And now we are no longer BFF. Sorry Pikachu speak to the hand, I got a much better BFF now. He is sexier and has more power than you.



     

    I know its cold but Raichu is my new BFF. Pikachu don't be jealous and don't hate..

    I set out on a mission to get as many 10 KM pokemon eggs as possible. I managed to sort through all the 2's and 5's and after a week or two of effort, I managed 8/9 10 km eggs and 1 5km egg. I decided it was time to get crackin. After a week or so of incubating I had about 2 km to go. Today I decided that instead of hitting the gym I would do something more exciting and adventurous. I went on a pokemon egg hatching bike ride. My biggest goal from this entire process was to get a Snorlax! The results weren't amazing, but I did get my Snorlax so I am a happy camper! Check it out.

    I started doing this one day because I was bored. I didn't really have any intention of anything other than having and showing off my loots. It has become so much more. I have had haters laugh in my face. They don't believe that I can turn Nerd Of The North into something big and successful. To those haters I say thank you for the inspiration! Do not underestimate the biggest nerd ever. I may be short, but I stand tall for all the nerds who are afraid or nervous to share their voice. Nerd isn't a negative term anymore. Nerd means smart, clever, awesome, creative, original, passionate, and unique!

    I can't take credit for editing these videos because my fantastic cousin in America is doing that part of it. He loves to do it and he says he enjoys it because it is like hanging out with me while I am so far away. My stepdaughter here in Norway has moved to southern Norway to go to school. She also misses me but loves watching the videos because it is like hanging out together. This video goes out to all of my family who misses me, and all of the awesome Nerds out there!

  • I didn't listen to my mom and got the Leather Jacket

  • Publisert: 10.09.2016, 14:47
  • Kategori: Blogg
  • I recently wrote a blog about needing help with deciding which Jacket to get. After counting up the votes, it seemed as if Winter Jacket edged out Leather Jacket as the overall opinion. I agree that the winter Jacket would be more effective during the winter times which will soon be here, although the leather jacket looked cool. Even my dear mom insisted I should go for the Winter Jacket, because she's my mom and always got my back. But what did I do? O rebelled because that's what Leather Jacket wearers do. I went against the popular vote, and even my moms vote and chose this cool stylish not as warm Leather Jacket. It is actually pretty warm though.

    Last year I got a Winter Jacket but recently a big hole ripped in the arm pit. I have decided to have it repaired and use it again this year. Now I am all set on Jackets for a while! Thanks to those who participated in the voting! <3 Nerd Of The North

  • My Job In Life - Make people laugh! <3

  • Publisert: 08.09.2016, 11:40
  • Kategori: Blogg


  •  

    Ever since I was little I have always been looking for attention.  For some reason I just love it when all eyes are on me. My mom has always told me of this story when I was about 5 years old and we went to Disneyland. I was wearing my one piece mickey mouse jump suit and we were outdoors watching a live Dixie Land Jazz band. I stood directly in front of the band, and then turned around and started dancing. Soon a few people gathered around to watch me and were cheering me on. The more they cheered the more I danced. Soon there was a large crowd and all of their attention was focused on the little blonde haired blue eyed boy dancing his heart out instead of the actual band playing. People were clapping and even some threw money. Maybe this was the moment I became a superstar.

    I have tried so many things throughout my life. I am always searching for that thing that I was meant to do. The one thing that always comes back, is the fact that I love to entertain people. I love to make them laugh, and it drives me to make people smile and feel happy. This is why I chose to start blogging and making funny and entertaining videos on YouTube. I am finally getting my message out to the masses through the internet. That message is to laugh, love, care, and enjoy the little things in life. For every subscriber and every follower I get, it encourages me more and more to keep doing it.

    I plan to reach out to thousands, and hopefully one day millions of people with my message. If you would like to follow along for the ride It would be my pleasure to have you as a follower/subscriber.

    I have some fantastic videos on the way, and any day I shall announce a contest where the winner will receive some great prizes!

    Winter is coming and I have been considering getting a new jacket. It is so hard to choose. I kinda like them all! I narrowed it down to these two. I asked my wife which one she liked and she gave me the most difficult answer possible.. She liked them both. I still can't decide.  What do you think? Should I go with the fake leather, or the long coat?

    I går var det min tur til å gjøre Adams Mattkasse middag, så jeg gjorde mitt beste for å imponere Mrs. Armstrong . Det var faktisk deilig. Hun ønsket også loff med ekte smør, og det er akkurat hva hun fikk. Adam ga ikke loff, så jeg måtte ta en tur til butikken. Jeg er min kones "gå til butikken bitch" og det er bra. Mens jeg var der bestemte jeg meg for å ta noen dessert.


     

    En perfekt middag må ha en perfekt dessert! Ha en flott dag folkens!

  • I found a Diamond in downtown Tromsø - Pedersen Lunch Cafe

  • Publisert: 05.09.2016, 18:28
  • Kategori: Blogg


  •  

    I heard about this nice little cafe downtown, but hadn't had the chance to try it until now. I finally got the chance to go check it out and I was pleasantly surprised. It is nestled in a cozy little spot down on Storgata in downtown Tromsø. They had a nice daily special but I was looking for more of a proper meal. I decided to go with the Pork Chops, green peas, cabbage, potatoes and gravy. It was straight up delicious and it hit the spot just right!



     

    It was nice and peaceful inside and had really comfortable interior  with a bit of a fisherman's flare. They even had a nice little spot for small children to play.





     

    I had a cup of coffee with my meal and I was quite full but I was very tempted with the nice looking deserts they had on display.



     

    I can say I was pleased with my experience. The staff was very friendly and the food was just right! The city is full of kebabs, pizza, sushi, and hamburgers but finding a place with proper Norwegian food (ordentlig Norsk mat) at an affordable price is something special. I recommend giving them a try. Next time I'll try the fish burger! (:

  • Egon i Tromsø - A lovely date with Mrs. Armstrong

  • Publisert: 04.09.2016, 17:06
  • Kategori: Blogg


  •  

    I decided that today I need to take my wife out. She has been bored and lonely all week while I am at work every night, so I insisted that despite the rain, we are going out. We would normally go eat sushi or pizza, but we chose to try something different. We headed over to Egon in Tromsø to have a lunch date.



     

    As soon as I seen the sign sitting out front, I knew that I would end up getting a Pulled Beef BBQ Sandwich. I was open to try something else, but something in my heart told me that a pulled beef sandwich was my destiny.



     

    I like Egon because the atmosphere is so cozy and warm. In my opinion it has one of the best ambiance of any restaurant in Tromsø. There is always a cozy little spot to sit down with your date, it is fun to sit and gaze upon the decorations.





     

    Don't ask me how they managed to get a buffalo to run head first into a wall so his head blasts out the other side, but it was still pretty cool! We found us a nice romantic spot and looked over the menu. I still had pulled beef sandwich in the back of my mind but everything on the menu sounded delicious.



     

    Suddenly it happened, I found what I wanted to eat but it actually wasn't a pulled beef sandwich. It was a pulled beef BURGER!! Being an american I prefer 2 slices of bread around my food, and the pulled beef sandwich with one slice of bread was more Norwegian style, so burger it is! Even Mrs. Armstrong (A.K.A. Mrs. Picky Pants) found something that sounded good and she is always adamant about trying something different and new. She went with the Chicken Kebab. BTW she looked beautiful today just like every day <3(:



     

    As we were waiting for our food a large group of about 10+ young men came and sat at a large table right beside us and were being a bit loud. I scoped out the restaurant and found us a nice cozy little nook in the back where we can have peace ad quiet and be alone. I informed the waitress that we were moving to a different table. It was much better (: Just as my stomach was growling like a volcano, the food arrived and oh boy it looked splendid!





     

    I will have to say that I was thoroughly pleased and so was Mrs. Armstrong. The food was so satisfying, and we put it down with two giant glasses of soda pop! MMMMMMM Delicious stuff here folks!



     

    After the meal, I was still craving a little something more so I fetched the desert menu, and after a short discussion we decided on 2 choices. Mrs. Armstrong chose a pancake with caramel sauce and blueberry jelly with Ice cream and I chose a Creme Brulee. There is something more satisfying than topping off a great meal with the perfect desert. 





     

    All in all I would recommend trying Egon, and especially the Pulled Beef Burger. If I gave the experience a dice cast, I may have given it a 6 but due to the noisy boys invading out quiet spot, ill give it a 5.5! <3 Egon

    It has been a long week. I had the traumatic dentist appointment, I survived a cold without skipping a beat, I been yelled at by customers at my job, my back feels like it is 82 years old, and my feet feel even worse. The best thing is I keep on going and keep on smiling. Today is a beautiful day and perhaps one of the last beautiful days we will see in Tromsø before it all goes dark and rainy and snowy. Do I get to go out and seize the day? No, but I get to go seize the job. While yall are enjoying this fine Saturday I will be waiting in the grocery store to serve you. I am going to be putting my best foot forward and doing my absolute best at what I do. Why do it any other way? This is why today I am taking a day off from some stuff. I slept in late, and skipped the Gym. Instead of a protein shake for breakfast I went with bacon and eggs. I took a long amazing hot shower and boiled my back and feet into shape, and it looks like I am good to go. Oh yah, today I am also eating and drinking sugar because I don't feel like suffering in any way today and besides its Saturday. I have been drinking sugar free energy drinks and telling myself that they are delicious when in actuality the sugar filled ones are so much more yummier. With that said I hope you have a great day and I shall do the same!

  • Tannlege besøk var ikke så ille likevel

  • Publisert: 02.09.2016, 10:49
  • Kategori: Blogg


  • Jeg kunne ikke sove natten før. Da jeg kom fortalte de meg at tannlegen skulle bli sent. Jeg hadde ekstrem angst kjører gjennom kroppen min.



     

    Det var endelig min tur, og jeg satte meg ned i stolen. De sa de ville være å trekke 2 tenner, men jeg trodde de ville bare trekke en. Min angst skutt gjennom taket, og jeg ønsket å forlate, men jeg lukket øynene og la dem gjøre sitt arbeid. Den første tann var borte i løpet av sekunder, og jeg følte knapt det. For det andre tann, en annen tannlege måtte holde hodet mitt mens den andre tannlegen tok den frem. Det var ubehagelig å si det mildt. Jeg er glad det er overstått . De faktisk var veldig snill og gjorde sitt beste for å holde meg rolig.

  • Facebook inspires delicious dinners like GARLIC BREAD LASAGNE! <3

  • Publisert: 01.09.2016, 11:17
  • Kategori: Blogg


  •  

    Every once in a while I come across a post on Facebook that encourages me to try something new for dinner. I couldn't resist when I saw this one called GARLIC BREAD LASAGNE! Just watching the video was making my mouth water, so since It was my day off I set out to make this masterpiece. It was really simple. Just brown some ground meat and add a chopped onion and some minced garlic. Then add some tomato paste and your favorite spaghetti sauce.



     

    I let the meat marinate on low heat for about 10 minutes and during that time I baked some frozen garlic rolls in the oven. I didn't cook them fully because they would be cooking a bit longer in the oven later. Then I cut the bread into slices and smashed the slices flat with my hand. Next up spread half of the meat sauce into a baking pan and spread out a layer of flattened garlic bread on top of that.



     

    Next up cut slices of fresh mozzarella and pile it on top of the bread. Now repeat the first three steps for another complete layer of deliciousness. Top the entire thing off with Parmesan cheese. I didn't go light with the Parmesan to make it extra yummy.



     

    Bake it at 190c for about 30 minutes. I could see the satisfaction on Mrs. Armstrongs face after one bight! A happy wife is a happy life!  <3
