I'm cleaning our guest room and changing the sheets in preparation for Santa's arrival ... because I figure that, given Norway's butter crisis this holiday season, he'll take one taste of my Norwegian Berlinerkranser cookies - naughty and nice at the same time - and decide to move in until the Nordic spring thaw (if not permanently, since I'd introduce him to the principles of the New Nordic Diet rather than feeding him a low-carb, high fat diet like Mrs. Santa does).
For a humorous look at Norway's butter crisis, check out this video by that master of satire, Stephen Colbert.
