People in Denial

People in Denial

 

The main problem with freedom is that the more freedom you grab, the greater survival skills it demands from you.

Vice versa, the more help & support you get from the outside world , the less freedom you can keep.

You cannot ask for both freedom and support at the same time. Accepting […]

Tatyana Droubich

I am an amicable person. I hate confrontation and ambiguous contexts. For me, it is simpler to tell things as they are all at once. It seems to me that femmes fatales do not act this way. Being sly, playing, plotting – no thanks. There’s no bravado here. I rather confess […]

My Lazy Lunch

My Lazy Lunch

today. I did not even make the salad, bought one from K-Supermarket and just added a few cherry tomatoes. The pale pink nanotomato pieces that were in the salad originally did not have a taste.

Lounas

The good news is that full fat milk is back in Finnish supermarkets. Okay, 4.4% is not […]

That’s a good one

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan

And just think: I got this in an automatic mail message following a winning bid at Huuto.net – next to seller’s bank account number and all.

Mystistä.

Norway calling

Norway calling

First, grieving, anger, and fear came in. Then, questions. A lot of them.

How many shooters were there in total? Killing over 50 people ALONE is an action movie superman’s task, and the guy was not even a seal/commando.

Why the killer was allowed so much time to act? The media are full of […]

What counts

What counts

The news headlines talk about a vast fire in Tampere center. Three people died. The story is a sad one, however what is good here is that everybody in Finland is talking and is worried about it. Compared to countries where tens or hundreds of human beings perish every week and no one really […]

Raising children in the 21st century not a piece of cake

Raising children in the 21st century not a piece of cake

Have been thinking about it for awhile…

When you leave the hospital with your newborn they tell you, “enjoy your baby”, you simply do not imagine you won’t be given an opportunity to enjoy, at least the first year.

The question is not about the baby herself. Basic care is as simple as ABC’s […]

Hesari goes IKEA, readers go blind

Hesari goes IKEA, readers go blind

If something can be named agressive marketing, it looks like this:

Looks like Ikea’s webpage, however it’s the main page of Helsingin Sanomat online. Looks terrible and is definitely impossible to read. Will have to go elsewhere for the news today.

I can only hope they have […]

This is a very sad summer

This is a very sad summer

In some instances, even frightening.

First, the heat. Rockperry’s last year in Vaasa. Then, Asta and Veera storms. Lahja(“gift”)-storm expected to come in full force next week, yesterday night’s thunder was just a joke compared to what’s in the forecast. Forest fires in Russia, smoke over Moscow and now spreading also across Eastern Finland. […]

Straight Edge Society™, Multicultural Interactive Real Approach™, YEAH!

Straight Edge Society™, Multicultural Interactive Real Approach™, YEAH!

You know, sometimes words said or written have that much difference from their original meanings… I face those differences more often day by day now. What you would think if you see something like “Multicultural Interactive Real Approach”? Think for a minute…

Or see the meaning of MIRAhouse in original:

Mira International Culture Society […]

All cats are grey

All cats are grey

While Burana is sorta cure-all solution for adult population in Finland, the medicine for all babies’ sores is supposed to be RELA-tipat or Reladrops…

Whenever you complain to local pediatricians on your baby crying a lot or apparently having stomach aches the answer is you should give’er reladrops. Any time, any place, and with […]

In desperate need of rain

I am really missing the traditional cool and wet Finnish summer. Believe it or not 🙂

I do not need a second parliament in Finland, do you?

I do not need a second parliament in Finland, do you?

Have just undersigned: http://www.russian.fi/adressi/

I really strongly dislike the idea of setting up any Immigrants’ Parliament.

Firstly, it would only strengthen the segregation. Finns have their own Parliament, immigrants will sorta have a separate one for themselves, and all within one country. What for? Begging money from the state “for humaniatarian and multicultural purposes” […]

Victoria getting married

Victoria getting married

Newsmaking is easy when you’re royal. Just pick up a commoner (preferably, a sportsman or a bodyguard), kiss his hand during an interview on TV, and finally ask your father to bring you to the altar.

The public will be pissing their heads off 😀 And from now on, they have a permanent subject […]

Ilkka Kanerva is the Tiger Woods of Finland 😀

Those guys are really funny. They head for the stars in, say, politics or sports, carrying a backpack full of naughty little demons that can pull them all the way back down any moment. Is it really worth the risk if the stakes are that […]

The quote that describes me best

The quote that describes me best

In other words, happiness is essential

Ordered that from an online shop and placed over the kitchen table (where we happen to spend most of our time when we’re awake).

To never forget. After all, I’m coming back to work this fall 😉

A remarkable weekend

A remarkable weekend

While the whole Suomi was taking the steam in hot saunas and sipping beer with grilled sausage on a plate beside, the country eventually got a new Prime Minister. Wlecome Mari Kiviniemi. The top level of Finland is more and more an example of girl power: female President, female Prime Minister, female opposition leader […]

Postmillennium babies are rebels

Postmillennium babies are rebels

I’ve always been a good girl. Slept on my back, ate formula with no complaints at all (and just imagine what kind of formula they used in the 70s!), and learned to walk a bit before I turned year old – my mom wouldn’t let me be on the floor because she hated the […]

They killed Metro

They killed Metro

The blast news from Moscow were on every TV channel and many Internet blogs yesterday and today. People are astonished, shocked. Pictures on Twitter… not every viewer can stand it.

38 lives wasted.

But what hurts me personally even more is the change for the worse that such events bring forward. When I was […]
