oh oh oh oslo!

A huge crowd of around 10,000 people, many carrying torches, assembled outside the Grand Hotel in Oslo Thursday evening to greet Nobel Laureate Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, as they stepped out on the balcony of their room.

The couple waved to the cheering crowd for several minutes, before they stepped back and went down to the traditional banquet with 250 invited guests, in honour of the Nobel Peace Prize winner. December 10, 2009

"no rush, barack"

Before picking up his prize and delivering an eloquent speech, the president and first lady visited the Nobel Institute to sign a guest book in the room where the Nobel Committee meets to vote on prizes. Mr. Obama carefully wrote seven lines of text, prompting Mrs. Obama to ask, “are you writing a book?”

When it was Mrs. Obama’s turn to write in the guest book, she quipped, “mine won’t be as long.”  The president’s response: “She will resist writing something sarcastic since this will be recorded for the future.”
