caught in the middle

I had a celebrity sighting today (ok, there were four actually, a Burger King employee turned porn star, a Ms. Norway-Universe from not-so-recent years, a Norwegian Idol judge, and then he) whilst walking along Karl Johan on this rainy autumn Saturday.

I sighted Christian Ingebrigtsen from the now-defunct British boyband A1 singing for Kirkens Nødhjelp, a Christian organization collecting aid for the Third World. His last song was “Caught in the Middle,” one of the few songs of the band I actually like.


As some of you might not know, Christian comes from Norway. And really among the boys in the band, it was he that appealed to me the most. See how my history with Norway goes a long way back. Hahaha! So it was a thrill to finally see him in person, and I was this close to him! So there I was, with an umbrella in one hand and a shopping carrier bag in another (bought a cardigan, and later in the day, a nice f/w jacket), singing…

“…things are so different now you’re gone, thought it’d be easy I was wrong. And now I’m caught, and now I’m caught in the middle…”

    Hey Paul! He’s pretty. He’s nice. So yeah, why not? :)

    Hey Renny! Nah, I don’t think so… I think Oslo is so small that I always see a celebrity around. They don’t even play incognito when they’re walking the streets of the city. :)

    We have the same taste, the iLocanoblogger! Yeah, I was so happy to have seen him in person. He’s a TV personality here in Oslo these days, he’s a judge for a talent competition.
