Our pigskin peregrinator Ida Eisenstein decided to extend her Norwegian sojourn for another week, leaving, friends, family — and the butcher at the Silver Star meat market — curious if she’ll ever find her way back home. Eisenstein is refusing to say what’s keeping her, but insiders suspect she’s in heated talks with the Ministry of Fisheries about whether to open up mackerel fishing in Grytafjorden, the heretofore protected waterway north of Stavanger. But another source spied Eisenstein, alone and carefree, dining on pepper-glazed rack of reindeer at Feinschmecker, one of Oslo’s best restaurants. In broken Norwegian, Eisenstein reportedly said this to her waiter, courtesy of poet Henrik Ibsen, her inspiration of the week: “A forest bird never wants a cage.”
