Yes, det står 1-0 til de private!!! SpaceShipOne-GovernmentZero. Den 21/22-Jun-2004 kan gå over i historien på linie med Lindbergs Atlant flyvning. 10 år senere var Atlant flyvninger rutine – vi er måske tættere på “the final frontier” end jeg troede.
Nedenfor er den tale jeg holdt til Sigrids barnedåb den 20-Juni-2004 gengivet. Sigrid er min kusine Solveigs og hendes kæreste Sørens datter.
Cassini-Huygens har nu passeret Saturn månen Phoebe og billederne er FANTASTISKE. Min kæbe skal samles op fra gulvet – jeg glæder mig så utroligt meget til den 1-Juli. Jeg forudseer at Cassini-Huygens bliver den største videnskabelige landvinding indenfor rumforskning siden månelandingerne, der er SÅ meget at lære derude
Another top list – Mio my friend (I wish) you’re the coolest I miss you, did you ever finish your book?
Kims top 10 male role models/coolest dudes ever!
1. Ole Mio Nielsen
2. Marrot (last name, spelling – not sure?) my woodshop teacher from primary school. I was hopeless in woodshop but my parents still have the bread “basket” I made so I guess it was quality made after all. He has influenced me more than most, including myself, realises. The “shooting for the basket” fancy I have – basket being the dustbin – was something I picked up from him. The lunchbreak always ended with Marrot asking for attention so that he could try to sink the aluwrap from his lunchpack (and he ate like 5 slices of danish ryebread so it was serious piece of aluwrap we’re talking basketball size – “overdrivelse fremmer forståelsen”) into the dustbin
3. Humphrey Bogart
4. Sean Connery
5. Malmcolm McDowel
6. James Woods
7. Jimmy Cagney
The rest of the list is made up of current friends and they appear in no particuliar order – my God am I happy having such cool frieds – they could easily make any top 10 list

Missed the Alicia Keys concert, bummer – oh well it was strictly a-list so I didn’t really qualify. Sitting in front of the National Theatre was very strange, the paparazzi were out, and I was in the line of fire because Hanne Boel and her daughter was sitting next to me, right on the base of the statue of Adam Oehlenschlaeger – Hanne was looking very hot (shame on you Casper Christensen for that horse pun – even though it was SO funny). Hanne actually looked hotter than her very attractive daughter. From the reactions of the papparazzi, it was obvious that it was very rare to see Hanne on the town. To be fair, the danish papparazzi are quite well behaved, it’s the first time of my life I’ve seen them in action, never been that close to the a-list before.
