life is wonderful – livet er et underverk – la vita e’ meravigliosa

Today I spent two hours at IKEA because NYTTIG FIL 440 does not fit UNDERVERK ventilator. It is the third time in three days that I drive to IKEA. The purpose of this post is not to share all the details of my suffering but since I do not find this problem when I google it, I hope that somebody with the same problem will find this post and me. IKEA promised to check as they admit that the filter NYTTIG FIL 440 does not fit the new UNDERVERK on the contrary of what is specified.

The funny thing is that underverk means wonders and nyttig means useful, not useful and not wonderful yet.

#google #1998 #minigonna #1965 #italiano


Oggi google compie 17 anni. Siccome anche mio figlio maggiore e’ nato nel 1998 e siccome stamani mi sono svegliata alle 4 e non sapevo piu’ cosa fare dopo aver finito una presentazione, fatto una passeggiata col cane, visto un paio di TED talk e una mezza puntata di Chi l’Ha visto, ho cercato su google “quale invenzione e’ stata fatta nel mio anno di nascita 1965”. Cosa e’ stato inventato nel 1965? La minigonna!

Kodeløypa @ntnu #ikt
