this morning my cellphone rang. i was at work and the number came up as 'withheld' so i sent it straight to voicemail. 5 minutes later i checked it and found a message from some woman in what sounded to me like swedish or some other scandinavian language. i played it for <a href="http://www.thegogglesdonothing.com/">peter</a>, who is our resident expert on scandinavian languages (i think he speaks swedish, icelandic, and danish). he was mystified. he said that the cadence was norwegian and he thought he recognized a couple icelandic words, but otherwise couldn't figure out what language it was.
unfortunately i deleted the message. it would have been fun to digitize it and put it online.
in other news, this morning i woke up one minute before my alarm was set to go off. sweet.
