The World giveth, and the World taketh away

I'm 32 years old. In this week I both got carded buying beer in the grocery store (age limit is 18) and asked if I was my brother's older sister. He's 44 (O_O).

What is going on here? I have two theories. 1) At least one of these two age-askers is the worst judge of people's ages ever (but which one? WHICH ONE?!) or 2) I've gone through some mega-rapid aging process in the last couple of days, much in the spirit of that nazi in the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the one who drank from the faux-Grail. Is there a gif? *googles* of course there is!

I am rooting for theory 1) but am prepared to spend the week-end staring myself in the mirror, witnessing my face caving in. Praise Jebus there's wine.

Please help me!

This is really weird but still somehow very cool:


The first thought is that these people have WAY too much free time. But I have checked this out at least ten times today and stared at it for minutes at a time so... you know.. what ever. It's hypnotic.

But I wonder if is this just in Finnish time (GMT+2) or if it's genius enough to pick the particular time zone of each viewing computer and adjust itself accordingly. So if you are in another time zone than GMT+2, does it display correct time for you? I really want to know.

Also, happy Mayday! Workers unite! Or something like that. I just got home, the city around my is still in a heavy party-mode. I'm slightly drunk, not enough to suffer in the morning, but happy/drowsy state of intoxication where nothing bothers me and I quite enjoy hearing party noises from the flats around me. I don't know why, maybe because I know they are going to be up for hours and I get to go to bed now, and that they are going to be sick in the morning and I'm not.

I'm a malicious bitch, aren't I? Oh well. Nobody's perfect.

What is this shit?

To wake up four o'clock in the morning to worry about your life and the state of the world is a time-honored tradition but fuck when what's keeping you up is pondering if the use of the metaphor "keep eye on the ball" is acceptable when talking about hockey. Is this question relevant to me in anyway? No. Do I care? No. Did I sleep between 4 and 5 am? No.

It's worse than the time I had a whole night long dream loop about being anxious if adding a raspberry on top of white chocolate ganache on a cupcake is too much. At least cupcakes are interesting.

Damn, men can be beautiful (and talented)

Oh, wow.

*pokes her own abs* No, not even close. Well, as the saying goes, those who can't drool after watch on youtube those who can...

Only 11 months to my next summer holiday!

Hi there! It's been awhile...

A few things:
  1. Today's my first day back to work after four lovely, lovely weeks of holiday. Woe. I just started to get used to waking up 9.30 in the morning at the earliest and doing only fun things with my time *sight* I wish I was so rich I'd never have to work again. I would be a good rich person, I wouldn't turn into an entitled asshat and I would give money for good causes and would appreciate my good fortune while drinking delicious fruity drinks in my yacht in the Mediterranean. Really, Universe, I deserve to be rich!
  2. We spent a week in Greece. Their economy may be in a disastrous crisis but damn, the Greeks win at food. Also, the sun there is pretty hot *peels off another strip of skin from the cleavage*
  3. I saw the new Planet of the Apes last week (it was surprisingly entertaining) and  (minor SPOILERS ahead) now I want a  fic where after the war, the Malfoys leave England, go to San Fransisco and start an evil shelter for primates. I'd just love to see the process of this happening :D Although, I don't know what would have to happen to poor Lucius to turn him from Jason Isaacs to Brian Cox.
  4. Drinking songs are so much fun!
  5. I met last weekend a guy I haven't seen in ten or 15 years. Or, I've seen him but not talked to him (we've never been friends, acquaintances more like), and anyway, walking down the memory lane, the first thing he says to me: "Remember the time I shot you in the head?" Ah, the joys of being a player of role-playing games... (and I do remember! He held a cap pistol right to my temple, and fired, in a cave-like room that echoed. Ouch. I thought I'd bleed from the ear.)
That's that, I think. Have a nice late-summer/early fall depending on your location, everyone!

Sweet and happy-making.

Down with homophobia and bullying! Viva empathy and solidarity!

Rage is the air I breath

There are so many wonderful, talented writers in the fandom. Then there are those who are not. Lately I’ve been trying to find new writers and fics to read with the worst luck ever. Right now I want to quit reading fics FOREVER. 

The last straw was a fic that didn’t have any warnings (I know, I know, only my self to blame) and turned out to be an infidelity fic (I generally dislike those even under the best circumstances).

Hate, hate, hateCollapse )

Argh! I hate everything right now! I must go read my comfort fics again to regain my equilibrium. Well, maybe I should actually get some work done first as I’m in the office but afterwards, definitely.

Oh and btw, this rant was powered by the results of yesterday's Finnish Parliamentary Election. Four years ahead under the government of soulless right-wing corporate lackeys and ridiculous, xenophobic red-neck ass-hats, whose leader looks like the love child of a toad and Jabba the Hut. Hate, hate, hate.

not a bad evening and serious medical tragedy

Two things. One of them  is positive and the other negative. I'll start with the positive as the negative is derived from the positive. (I'm also a bit drunk so bare with me)
  1. Today a co-worker of mine defended his doctoral thesis and I went to the after party. I don't know what the practice is elsewhere in the World but in Finland the after-party, or Karonkka as it's called, is very pompous and formal event, at least in the faculty of medicine. The guys are wearing tuxes or tail-coats and women are in gowns that are dark, angle-length and fancy. There are a lot of speeches (about 1h 30 minutes in this one). But, when the clock was about 2.30 in the morning, and the band had played all THE songs ( you know THE songs, all nations have them, the ones that are part of our genetic inheritance. Like: The Finns are more likely to have congenital nephrotic syndrome than other populations, and WILL jump up and down and sing along when the band plays "Levoton Tuhkimo") and was just starting "I Will Survive", about ten med students, maybe 25 years old in average, all male, decided to take their shirts off and dance only in dress pants and ties ( some had suspenders), I thought, this isn't a bad way to end an evening. Not. At. All. *happy sigh*
  2. This got me wondering: What happens to the good looking doctors? I mean, there are SO many hot med student guys but I don't think I have ever met ONE truly hot doctor. There are a lot good looking female med students and there is an equal amount good looking adult female doctors but adult male doctors tend to be CREEPS with limp, fish-like handshakes and unpleasantly cold manners. What happens to the hot doctors? Does the job consume their hotness fast? Do they change professions? It's a mystery. I don't know if this hot doctor lackage is an international crisis or only a problem that plagues Finland but if you have any theories, let me know. It really puzzles me.

Ok, it's 3,49 in the morning and I'm sitting in the floor in my dark, angle length, fancy evening gown. Time to go to bed. Good night and sweet dreams

Movie/TV Squee

I've been watching a lot of movies and TV today.

Two things:
  1. I started to watch Supernatural season 5 today, and I know I'm late to the game but hee, the fangirl with the clavicle licking!! :D :D Also, I'm now in the second episode and, man, the Dean/Castiel-vibe is heavy! I love it!! If you know any good D/C fics, please be throwing them my way. (Also, Jakob and The Man In Black, as Lucifer and War, yay)
  2. I went to see the movie King's Speech today. It was very good (but with a few cheap, too easy moments that were disappointing), Firth and Rush were amazing but my absolutely favourite moment: When Bertie meets Mrs. Logue = Colin Firth meets Jennifer Ehle = (The Real) Darcy meets (The Real) Elizabeth!! YAY!!! They were all old and gray but still awesome. I <3 that show so much.
            I'm a sad sad woman, I know :)  I don't care.

Hard English is hard.

In the beginning of all my posts I should insert some kind of standard note that says: OMG it's been so long since I last posted but I've been busy and besides, nothing interesting has happened. Oh, well.

I've been writing my first fic ever. Well, actually it's third I've been writing ever but first I've actually finished. It's H/D, obviously, and not very long and very, very silly. I'm not sure if I'll post it because I ran into a problem I hadn't predicted. Namely, the English language.

Whine, whine, whinity whineCollapse )

Sigh. Sometimes I hate that I wasn't born to an English speaking country. Couldn't you all learn Finnish? It's not that hard.

Ok, enough of that. To make up all the whine, look at the cheeky doggie!

I love the arrogant ones.Collapse )
