Went to the ABBA the Scrapbook facebook page

and saw this. 
I've never felt so honored before.  My old comics (that are a bit cheesy now that I look at them).  It's nice to know people like them.  :P

From Agnetha and Frida

To you all,
A message of appreciation and gratitude for your true support over so many years, manifested in this brilliant book, initiated by Polar Music and Mia at Universal Sweden.
We are truly privileged to have had your love and support for such a long time, and how you show us that music has no borders and is the messenger of peace and love in a world in so much need of it!

With our best wishes,
Frida and Agnetha xxx
I can't believe my message is in this.  :D

There's something about the way Frida looks here that makes my think of my grandmother.  It could be the way she's dressed, but I'm not sure.  It hurts and it makes me long for my grandmother even more.  I wish my grandma was able to see me now, how much I've progressed in both drawing and sewing.  :(

Anyway, enjoy this picture of Frida from Zermatt Unplugged.  :)

ABBA's Outdoor Adventures Part 5?

I think it's part 5, not sure.  Anyway, the weather is finally nice enough to go outside and take pictures of my dolls.  ;)

I want to make a tribute band

that will perform a select amount of songs from each of ABBA's 8 studio albums.  And they'll wear costumes (and wigs) that go with each album.  For example, the show could start out with "Ring Ring" and they can come out wearing the costumes that ABBA were during the Melodifestavalen of 1973.  They'll have to have wigs to accommodate the girl's hair changes, like before 1974, Agnetha didn't have bangs. Still wearing, those costumes, they could perform songs from the Ring Ring album like "He Is Your Brother", "Love Isn't Easy (But It Sure Is Hard Enough)", "Another Town, Another Train", and "Disillusion".  I'd love to hear "Disillusion" sang on stage.  ;)  Then there'll be a short break and they change into their Waterloo costumes, change Frida's wig of course, and then they sing songs from Waterloo, like "Waterloo" (duh), "Gonna Sing You My Lovesong", "Suzy-Hang-Around", "My Mama Says", and "King Kong Song".  Maybe they'll switch to the white outfits with the green and white capes in the middle (plus a hair change for Frida).  Then they can sing songs from ABBA (still wearing the white outfits) like "Tropical Loveland", "I've Been Waiting For You", "Mamma Mia", "S.O.S", "Intermezzo No.1" and so forth.  Then a costume switch to the cat dresses and a hair change for Frida, and then they can do songs from both ABBA and Arrival.  And in the middle of singing Arrival, they can switch to the kimonos.  And maybe as an extra bonus, they can do the National song.  And then they can switch to the 1977 gold outfits and sing songs from The Album.  They can even do the whole Girl with the Golden Hair thing with the gold wigs and all.  And then a costume switch to the animal outfits, you know, the red and green ones, and they can perform a few songs from Voulez-Vous.  And in the middle, they can switch to the tour costumes, either the blue or the white, and Agnetha can do "I'm Still Alive"!  And then after Voulez-Vous, there'll be a massive hair change for both the girls and they can wear the Super Trouper outfits and perform songs from that album.  And in the end, they can switch to the outfits worn on the Dick Cavett Show and do songs from the Visitors. But there's more - there'll be a costume and wig change and they'll do "The Day Before You Came", "Cassandra", "Under Attack", and a reprise of "Thank You For The Music" for the finale.  That would be a true ABBA experience and I want this tribute band to come alive.  :P

Just got this in my email...

Great to hear you’re interested. I’ve been working on this experiment for quite a while now and it’s actually starting to feel ready.

I’ll get back to you as soon as there’s more I can reveal.
Björn Ulvaeus

I know it's an automated message, but I feel very honored. :)

Mamma Mia! The Party

I was wrong, there is something special going on this year...  ;)  I am really excited now!

Oh yeah, apparently Bjorn is now Doctor Bjorn Ulvaeus...? :S

You would not believe how tough these ABBAgrams were. I couldn't even solve them myself - a friend had to help me, lol!  :)

1. Take a chance on me
2. Waterloo
3. The Album
4. Money money money
5. He is your brother
6. The name of the game
7. I wonder
8. Honey Honey

I have a dream

but it's not a song to sing.  I had an ABBA related dream today where I was drawing a picture of ABBA, but Agnetha didn't fit in the picture, so I only drew her feet.  :S

3 years ago...

on this day
 I created this blog!  :D  Can you believe it?  Three whole years of my blog!  :D 

I don't plan on doing any April Fools joke today, in case you didn't like my one from last year where I said I was closing my blog, lol.  :P

Anyway, I plan on updating my blog theme later today or next week or sometime this month.  Yay!  :D

Three years, huh?  Still can't believe it...
