Scrambled Eggs & Babies

At work today we somehow got on the topic of eggs. My Danish co-worker was telling me how he makes scrambled eggs....He breaks the eggs into a plastic bag, shakes them up shake-n'-bake style, and then holds the bag in a pot of boiling water to cook. What a crazy guy. I can't say whether or not that is a Danish thing to do, but if it is, Danes are silly. Boiling plastic scares me.

We also got on the subject of working and having kids. Danes have this perception that all American moms quit their jobs, give up their careers, and stay at home to raise their kids. They were asking me why American girls would even bother going to school if they were just going to give up their careers once they had kids. I was really surprised that they think of American women like this because if I had to guess, I would think they'd believe they opposite. Personally, I can't think of a single American mom that I know today who doesn't have at least a part-time job. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised, because I think their impressions of American culture stem from 1950's cowboy movies and Little House on the Prairie.

I have no new pictures to post, so here is another Baby Julie to keep you coming back for more:

Hey Julie. Are you getting the volcanic ash from Iceland over there?

Nanc-I just heard about this Iclandic volcano. Apparently they closed the airport. guess they are anticipating it? or maybe the ash is clear, bc its blue skies over here.
