Ineksen Päiväkirja - Suodatettua totuutta ja kaunisteltuja val -

Our vampire heroes were summoned to the Elysium once more, and notice that for some reason, all the Nosferatu seem to be missing. Silver steps onstage. He brings news of Prince Qadir's final death, and begins to show a video clip on the screen behind him. Cut scene, we switch characters to those of the Sabbat, prepared for us by our GM. I play a Tzimisce ancilla, Jone plays a Lasombra elder, Kaisa a Brujah elder, Mikko a Tzimisce neonate and Allu a young Lasombra neonate. We are on a mission...

Oopiumiunia -

An MP has very nearly talked himself into supporting today's "Perverts Wear Purple" day - by accident. And it could hardly have happened to a less likely politician: Ronnie Campbell, one of the most down-to-earth and decent men in the Commons. The 64-year-old former miner and Labour Member of Parliament for Blyth Valley was approached and asked to wear something purple to support National Fetish Day. He said he would wear a purple shirt. Unfortunately, no one had told Ronnie what the word...

Maartsin matkassa -

Neuleiden viimeistely tökkii. Väliaikaviihteenä emme tarjoa tällä kertaa pupustelua, vaan sisustelua tylsien kuvien kera. Uudessa asunnossamme on aito, alkuperäinen muovimatto. Valitettavasti emme osaa arvostaa maton historiallisuutta, joten sille tulee lähtö ja tilalle parketti. Paljon on taas tullut uutta opittua. Minä kun luulin, että parkettia hankitaan siten, että mennään kauppaan ja ostetaan parkettia. Matkan varrella on kuitenkin tehtävä monta päätöstä. Tammea vai...

Bigotry Unspecified -

The Wife began her work finally and seems to have enjoyed her first day in her library. Tired but content to have done something. And a whole crowd of teachers purportedly went 'woooooohh' when she told them that I'd taken her surname instead of the usual other way around. First job interview tomorrow morning to see if I got what it takes to be a newspaper-delivery-person. Biggest hindrance might be that the public transportation doesn't really start until 6am when the papers are supposed to...

Bigotry Unspecified -

Got the newspaper delivery job. After the interview, I don't think I could not have gotten it. Not that it was a proper job interview at all. I went in and the interviewer asked me to fill a contact form while she did some work (I was early. As always.). Then she came back, I had the form filled and she barely pauses to apologise that it took a while before she launches into explaining a route they had picked out for me already.. Too bad I had to tell her then, that in order for me to get my...

TV: OFF (!) Onkohan aika ajamassa ohi perinteisestä alueellisesta sanomalehdestä? Ainakin Keski-Suomen alueellinen ykkönen Keskisuomalainen haluaa ilmeisimminkin kovalla vauhdilla jonkinlaiseksi roskalehden ja peräkylän rokkiaviisin risteymäksi. Oikoluku näyttää olevan käsitteenä tuntematon, aiheet valitaan huomiotalouden ehdoilla ja kaikki mikä tuo rahaa on "vitun jees".

The Jumalauta Food Review -

A few days ago I was in Stockholm to attend Apple's Leopard Tech Talk. The talk was very interesting but unfortunately it is under NDA so I can't really tell you anything about the conference. But here's a small(?) reportage about the most important part of the trip: food. A proper trip to Stockholm begins always with an early and rich breakfast buffet on the ferry. The buffet was served at 5:30 a.m but I did not manage to get there before 6:00 a.m so I had about one hour to enjoy the servings...

After being kept waiting nearly one week for an appointment, German Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst was able to meet with Pope Francis today at Vatican to explain his lavish use of church funds. The Bishop of Limburg - now known as the Bishop of Bling --- has spent some $42 million to renovate his official residence and is accused of falsifying expense reports. The pope, who has used the Throne of St. Peter to preach for a "poor" church and has set the example by rejecting the opulence...

Through a looking glass -

As part of NASPIR , I've signed a letter defending free speech in the case of Ward Churchill, a professor at the University of Colorado. Churchill wrote what he called "a stream-of-consciousness interpretive reaction to the September 11 counterattack" in the immediate aftermath of said event. The rediscovery of this sloppy polemic has led to raging denunciation, with death threats, the governor of Colorado calling for Churchill's resignation and so on. The issue of most interest to corporate...

Couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a journalist from Helsingin Sanomat, which is the largest subcription based newspaper in the Nordic region. Helsingin Sanomat offers readers a weekly supplement NYT which is delivered as insert to the newspaper. The NYT supplement is a weekly guide to entertainment and the leading proponent of leisure-time activities in the Helsinki metropolitan area. They had seen my blog and they had an idea to make a story about burgers. I was asked to join a journalist...

Rioters have taken to the streets of Paris once more, reminding us of the massive rioting that took place only last fall. The BBC reports: Paris suburb sees fresh rioting The mayor's house is now under police guard following the riotingAbout 100 youths wielding baseball bats have fought French police in a Paris suburb, in the worst such violence since widespread riots in November. The youths threw stones and petrol bombs at police in the town of Montfermeil overnight. They also hurled stones at...

According to the south-Swedish newspaper Helsingborgs Dagblad , Sverigedemokraterna is popular among youth , or, as the researcher suggets, it might just be a sign of teenage rebellion. Here are some excerpts from the article: "Every other ninth-grader does not know what party they would vote for in the parliamentary elections, or if they would vote at all, shows the extensive opinion research. At the same time the Sweden Democrats are enjoying great support. They became the most popular party...

So, the proverbial excrement has really hit the fan. Massive demonstrations around the Middle-East, a French editor was sacked for printing the cartoons in France , several Arab countries have withdrawn their diplomatic representation in Denmark, Palestinian Islamist groups have threatened Danes and Norwegians and they are declared valid targests as are any diplomats from these countries. Muslims in Finland have joined the boycott and condemn Denmark and Islamists in London have threatened...

Dream diary -

I was home, greeting some visitors who had just entered the hallway and hanging their coats onto racks. I was wearing a black sweater and some black shiny shoes. I stood there watching all the people pouring in to our house. There were some red Christmas decorations hanging on the walls. I looked at a person and said to myself with a slightly rising intonation: "That's her dad..." Then the man who had just come in and taken his black coat off lifted his head and stared at me. He had a short...

Akua Edusei works as a Welfare Adviser for her local Citizens Advice Bureau. She is warm and outgoing, a thoroughly approachable human being who recently found herself developing the characteristics of a 'super bitch' (her words not mine) and here's why. 'We recently moved into a shared house with some Indian housemates, the trash was emptied by us for well over a year and a a half and we didn't really mind helping out since we believe in communal living. But recently we found out that they...

Gagan ( From My Lil Window) -

Few days ago my uncle was asking me about how to read bangla web pages in his Android tablet. While I was explaining things to him, I thought I should share this information in case it helps someone else. First of all, it's quite interesting that even though this Android stock browser and Google Chrome desktop browser are both 'browsers', and came out of the same company, there is little /no communication between these the two development teams! So rendering stuffs are not really the same in...

A foreigner living in Finland -

The majority of the Finns are Lutherans, even though not many seem to practise their religion much, except maybe when getting married and having their offspring christened. If I have not got it completely wrong, in Finland the church and the state have been separated from each other since the reformation when Finland was a part of Sweden. According to an interview in a newspaper the bishop of

I've had inconsistent week. I've got sad news, but also good news. And own life is better than average. Anyway, our loved grandad - pappa Pauli passed away on Tuesday evening, alone in the hospital room in Mikkeli. He was old, 87 yrs, and had various old people's diseases. Though it wasn't predictable, somehow it's relieving - thank you Pappa for all the things in life. Tuesday was also my father's 55th birthday - that made the day even more inconsistent. I got congratulated my dad in late...

(Subject: What I wanted to say...) My dear, here I am, finally. Really: I am here. The river Spree froze solid one day , but now it is flowing again, and when I cycle with boyf down the melting streets I make him "smell the spring", and he laughs at me: you can't be talking about spring when it's freezing and there are heaps of snow in our back yard, seriously, listen to yourself! Here, but how? Through the freezing and melting of Spree, through the hundredrs of hours spent sitting in the...

The Writer's Puzzle -

I'll begin my first posting with a few notes: Note #1) - I have to humbly admit that these postings (meaning the following flow of thoughts which shall henceforth be known as "THE PUZZLE") will and do contain numerous grammatical errors (seems that the blogger will take care of the spelling...). My skill in writing english is rather limited (I'm doing much better in finnish), so please, do try to see the forest from the trees. "Why, in god's name, in english?" you ask. - I don't wish to forget...

We were surrounded with books during the Christmas holiday. These are some of the books we read and keep reading after Epiphany. 1.

Work This year I resigned from my day job in June. I intended to do an ad-funded educational website, a mental continuation to the Finnish Annotator project I did a decade ago. The site has been online for a month now. During that month exactly one reader has arrived to the site through search engines. Consequently I haven't bothered to put any ads there. At the end of December I have been sending job applications to return to salaried employment as I'm obviously not making an income with the...

Summary: This post advocates taking guns away from people who are under psychotropic medication. Helsingin Sanomat published a long and sad article about Hyvinkää shooting case with 2 dead and many more injured for life . The outcome would have been much worse without a police squad shooting back minutes after the shooting started. Among other things the article tells that the shooter was under influence of fluoxetine, an SSRI antidepresant . Out of 5 recent mass killings in Finland...

Still in love with this country but hey. Couple of things more. Previous part of this post  here  btw. 1. Where's the unlimited internet? I just need it. 2. Where are the endings of the bread? Them I don't really need. But just wondering. 3. Why this offensive name for snuns brand? Just don't. Also, that accent mark doesn't really help the situation. 4. Why Ikea meatball looks like a poop emoji?? Seriously.
