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

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” […]

Sorta military stuff

Sorta military stuff

Looks like we’ve got something interesting to do this coming Saturday. US Marines finally located Western Finland on their maps and are coming to visit on board USS Simpson (yes! the Simpsons in da Vaasa! hurra! lol) frigate. Some Oliver Hazard Perry kind, have no idea what it is 😀

UPDATE:

Ahaa. Here’s what […]

Wildflower Day

Wildflower Day

is celebrated today in Vaasa (according to Vaasalaisia.info). Love the idea. Here’s my contribution:

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 […]

Shaken, not stirred

Shaken, not stirred

We had a miniature earthquake here in Vaasa last night 🙂

Around 23.30, the walls of the house started trembling a bit and we heard dingdiling of porcelain in the cupboard. Did not last long though, did not scare anyone either. If we already slept we wouldn’t even know.

UPDATE

Yeah baby! it was […]

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 […]
