Suomen kesä 2012

However it has not been snowing either. Positive thinking yeah 😀

To be honest, this is MY kind of weather, lov’ it.

 

 

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 […]

Bloody tuna

Bloody tuna

Literally.

It looks rather like it has had botox. Allright… it is frozen 😀

I bought it in Niilin poika the other day. Will stuff YGD with apples and herbs from the garden and grill it in the oven.

Seasoned with a handful of good humor.

Funny idea to put those two side by side 😀 Well done Vaasan Ikkuna!

A flu and desktop breakdown at the very end of 2010 is a beautiful combination 😀 Hope 2011 is better.

Smb asked me why I am in a good mood today…

… is there any kind of big day? Yes, probably the biggest one after Xmas. The Day of Tax Returns 😀 Everybody in Finland gets his or her extra tax payments back and goes to Linna to celebrate it with the President.

Kidding.

Pretty witches from Indica wish you a good loooong weekend.

A bad quality poem inspired by weather

A bad quality poem inspired by weather

it’s snowin’ in my dreams it’s snowin’ in the world snow is plain white paper for a story to be told

Snow’s random memory keeps a footprint record A hare ran across the field And a hungry fox came in second

The winner was not fast enough, got caught on the run and fell […]

It’s snowin’ down in flakes

It's snowin' down in flakes

A new reality: to enter your house, dig it out first 😀

Ai kamalaa, hah-hah, Marja Tyrni sanoi kun uuden sähkölaskun näki

Ai kamalaa, hah-hah, Marja Tyrni sanoi kun uuden sähkölaskun näki

Marja Tyrni, or Marja Seabuckthorn, or Seabuckthorn Berry since “marja” is “berry” in English.

Lehtikuva / Heikki Saukkomaa

This is a, hm, woman in her 40s or 50s from Pallivaha residential area of Turku (which really exists, although “pallivaha” means “ball wax”, where balls are of course those of […]

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. […]

Love fresh basil

Love fresh basil

Snails do, too.

Just left the package outside overnight and now… there’s not much left of it. Damn 🙂

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 😉

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 […]

And the morning after…

"A nice present to a person who has already got everything"

That is the description the author of a sell ad has provided for his lot.
