I’m a lallebommer

I’m a lallebommer. Don’t know the word? Don’t worry. Here’s the entry for your dictionary:

Lallebommer (noun): One who lalleboms
Lallebom (verb): To stay up late, even if you know you should go to bed. The roots of the word are the Norwegian words ‘lalle’ (“babytalk” for go to bed) and ‘bomme’ (to miss) – meaning “going to bed – but missing (on the bed)”

Me, I’m lallebomming right now. I have been lallebomming for over three hours already, I’m afraid, but… Well, there must be other lallebommers out there who knows the situation well enough for me not to have to explain the reasons why?

But I’ve lallebommed long enough now. This lallebommer is going to bed right after publishing this post. (I think.) Have a good night, those of you who reads this at night!


  1. Well now, is there anything you *can’t* do Svein Kare? Lallebommer eh? Well well well, will have to add that one to the volcabulary.
