Hygge… (January 27th FFF)

I was invited (well, not personally, but still) to Fandango’s Friday Flashback! Fandango scrolls back, every Friday, and gives a second chance to a post he had published on the same date, years before. I thought it was a great way to remember some of the stuff I did a while back, and I decided…… Continue reading Hygge… (January 27th FFF)

Forstår du dette?

. Good evening Lovelies! As you might know, I have started a beginner’s level Danish course online on January 8th. I have worked hard the past three weeks, and I feel it is starting to pay off. When I last attempted to learn Danish, my writing and reading skills were on the right path, but…… Continue reading Forstår du dette?

Work in progress…

. As you might know, on January 8th, I embarked on my (new) journey to learn Danish. I’d blame it on Pinot Noir, but I’ve wanted to really learn the language for so many years… So let’s just say that the alcohol convinced me to let go of a few hundred dollars to achieve my…… Continue reading Work in progress…

Work in progress…

. As you might know, last week I (re)started learning Danish. This time I invested in a serious course. It’s only beginner level, and I wouldn’t fool myself into thinking that completing it will make me fluent in the intricate language of the Danes… But it is very professionally built, by a Danish teacher residing…… Continue reading Work in progress…

Taler du dansk?

. As previously mentionned here, I had a brain bubble earlier this week, and on a whim, subscribed to an online Danish class. I missed Denmark and everything Danish, and it was about time I picked up on the studying I had done pretty much on my own when I started The Cove. I thought…… Continue reading Taler du dansk?

Take me back…

. Some love stories never die. Thank God! And though I knew it hadn’t died, my love for Denmark has gone silent for a while. A long while. Pretty much a pandemic-long while. But like Jack Nicholson in The Shining, it was just waiting for its chance to blow the door I had built between…… Continue reading Take me back…

Cyranny’s Jukebox…

. I know, it’s been quite a while since I last put a token in my jukebox. But better late than never again, I guess, so here we go again. I’ve discovered Scarlet Pleasure when I first watched Druk, one of Thomas Vinterberg’s great movies, staring Mads Mikkelsen (sigh). The Danish band is better known…… Continue reading Cyranny’s Jukebox…

A DK playlist, just for you…

It’s Saturday evening, and even if we still are under a 9h30 PM curfew, that doesn’t mean that I can’t put a couple of quarters in my jukebox, play a couple of songs, and invite you to wiggle a little. I have an all Danish program for you tonight, because… Well, do I really need…… Continue reading A DK playlist, just for you…

And you can’t have her…

  My bestfriend, that is. If you’ve been a regular in The Cove, you probably know that my BFF and I have been friends for over thirty years. Which, by my standards means that J and I are real soul sisters. J has always found the wildest ways to celebrate my birthday. Once, she picked…… Continue reading And you can’t have her…
