I’m just old enough that it feels difficult for me to publish photos of our little baby girl in the Internet: What if she does not like it when she gets older? Are these photos really good enough (for me), […]

Pink Pionies -

Browsing through some old photos. This is how our daughter's room looked like couple of years ago. Kävin läpi vanhoja kuvia ja tältä meidän tytön huone näytti pari vuotta sitten. Ugly dolls in a row. Still have them boxed somewhere, but not in her room anymore... Because teen years... ;-) Ugly dollsit rivissä. Nämä ovat vieläkin tallessa jossakin, vaan eivät enää hänen huoneessaan... Koska teini... ;-) Lots of decorative pillows back then. And now too, but totally different...

THAI DEMOCRACY -

So week has passed without any posts. Why? Nothing to post. We haven't done anything. Saturday we went out and had a blast, then hangover. Then week went with food poisoning and happy stuff like that. Because of that, I've played insane amounts of poker, more than 10.000 hands this week alone. Too bad the games haven't been going too well, but still winning luckily. I've had one of the most insane shitty runs of poker I've had so far this week, and that has caused me to play bad also. But...

Mostly harmless -

I'm back at my parents' house, we moved my stuff from Turku last Friday with relative ease. I was very unsurprisingly late on my packing, but unfreezing the fridge was probably the most time consuming part of the whole day. I'd been meaning to do it for a while now but it just somehow got always put off to a later date... Oh well. I had a nice get together with a couple friends on Wednesday, funny though that it was actually the first time I invited people over like that. With 5 people it was...

I got this wonderful package almost two weeks ago! Thank you secret pal. :) Pictures... Handspun yarn! (I think she did those herself :) Red yarn Cute handmade hat for a baby :) ...and candles with orange and honey scent. As always, I really liked the package! I like all the colours. She did make the effort for this. There was also a little letter and a picture of her. It is really nice to know who send me all these packages and emails. I enjoyed this SP very much and I'm happy that I got to...

Brothers weddings tomorrow. I'll be reading the corintian letter thingy about love and stuff in the church. Exciting... I'm actually pretty nervous. And so happy for them. Next week: Big school project ends, more work to be done, octet training, last real choir practice before the concert, brothers wedding dance for friends and our octet performance! Then it's the spring concertto week and we visit digital chocolate with game design group! Then... summer 'holiday'. I'm hopefully working 2/3...

Rakkauden Ministeriö -

I watched Roman Polanski's The Ninth Gate for the second time. Last time when I watched it a few years ago I didn't like it. Mostly because of it's evil and satanic message. This time I liked it a lot. Polanski's blasphemy in The 9th Gate can be even compared with Bunuels Viridiana. He's a mocking the blaah blaah blaah hypocrit humanists with his black humour and sharp anarchism. I understand why the moron critics don't understand Polanski's films, while he is constantly ahead of these idiotic...

Wild joys and wilder sins -

This is seriously getting out of hand again. I talked to my friends a few days ago and they said they'd been really worried about me and my eating but that nowadays I'm seem so much better and looks like there's nothing to worry about. I should've been relieved and happy... Instead, I immediately started thinking: They think I eat like a normal person. They think I'm gaining weight. They think I'm fat. And maybe I AM. Maybe I'm fucking huge. So I'm back to a strict diet. I don't want to be...

Freodom -

I did a sort of stress-relieving project over the new year where I finished Bethesda games I hadn't gotten around to finishing, i.e. Skyrim, Fallout 4 and - finally! - Morrowind. With that out of the way, my next gaming project had to be another shot at Crusader Kings 2. With so many new DLCs and patches out, I figured I needed to get reacquainted with how it all works, especially now that Monks and Mystics promises to make playing in Catholic western Europe a little more interesting. I'm...

Nappisuutari -

I read two books in considerably short time. They were nothing alike, and I won't compare them more than this, but let me just ask a question. Does one have to like a book for it to be good? I know that both of my reads are international best sellers, praised by critics, and I don't have enought fingers to point all my friends who really like these novels. Still, I'm not convinced about their greatness, actually I am surprised by my oppinion. Let me elaborate: The first book was The Thousand...

Veckans tema är Noras klänningar. Före jag visar er bilderna på Nora vill jag presentera Nora för er. Nora är en av mina (SS:s) goda vänner. Hon är en vacker person, inuti och utanpå. Naturen är liksom hennes andra hem. Vi brukar skämta om att hon antagligen har varit vara en skogsrå i sitt förra liv som gömmer sig i skogen och får orgasmer av alla naturfenomen. Hon är en person som inte äger en enda spegel i sitt hus. Hon använder varken smink eller några hårprodukter och...

The Yarn-Loving Couple -

I bought a skein of Novita Puro because I thought it was pretty. I'm not normally into pink, I think it's my least favorite color, but this time the pink just begged me to give it a try. I just liked how it was combined with lilac and light brown. I had my suspects though so I only bought one skein. Sometimes this kind of yarn looks horrible when knitted. So I have a skein of  new yarn, now what to do with it? You can't do much with fifty grams of bulky yarn. It had to be something small...

Kulttuuri kukoistaa -

Clementin Varastettujen rukousten vuori avaa tehokkaasti karmeaa nykytodellisuutta Yhdysvaltojen ja Meksikon rajaseudulla. Sen sisarkirjan - kirjailijan itsensä luonnehdinta - tapahtumat alkavat Floridasta, syrjässä turistien ja hyvinvoivien eläkeläisten alueista. Kaatopaikan vieressä on yhteisö, jossa asutaan asuntovaunuissa, hylätyissä hökkeleissä tai autonromussa, josta ei ole enää ollut liikkujaksi vuosiin. Viime mainittu on Pearlin ja hänen äitinsä Margotin koti. Tarinaa...

The Yarn-Loving Couple -

I finished my Tsunomnom socks a long time ago. A long, long time ago. I just didn't like them at first. I don't know what particularly put me off with them. It wasn't the color of the yarn since I was very fond of the grey/brown combination. And it wasn't the pattern because I liked those lazy diamonds and simple cables. But it must have been something because it made me put the socks away for almost a month. Tsunomnom socks in all their glory. But then I started to feel guilty for not wearing...

Nordic walking is like skiing without the skis, just using the poles. Compared to traditional walking, the method has many advantages, even though some people might think nordic walkers apparently just have lost their mind.It is not many years ago when the early adopters started to walk with poles in the summertime, and they were looked at funnily. Quite soon, though, research showed the

Pitkään on jo mieleni tehnyt kirjoittaa Oulun brunssivaihtoehdoista, vaati näköjään vain muutaman vuoden, että sain ensimmäisen tekstin ulos. Brunssi on ehkä kokenut pienen inflaation. Tai sitten se ei vain enää ole uusi, hypetettävä juttu tai pakollinen osa jokaisen itseään kunnioittavan ja ajan hermolla olevan kaupunkilaisen viikonloppurutiineja. Porukkaa brunsseilla kuitenkin tuntuu edelleen käyvän. Se on arkipäiväistynyt. Viime viikonloppuna kävimme Puistolassa...

It didn't took me a long time to decide what I wanted to knit first from my new "Knitted Socks East and West" sock book . I immediately liked a pattern called "Inro" . It wasn't anything challenging or extra ordinary, but I enjoyed the simplicity of these socks. The socks-ness of these socks. I just wanted to knit them and so I did. Pups like them too According the book "inro" means "a small ornate case consisting a stack of small, nested boxes" and in the socks the wrap stitches are supposed...

THAI DEMOCRACY -

Surprisingly once again, it is actually saturday. In Thailand it has been The drinking day for us. We usually go out on saturday evenings, rather than friday, because in Thailand saturday is a work/school day for a big majority of people. It would actually be for us too, but we chose not to take any courses on saturday, for some obvious reasons of course. There might not be so much people out partying on fridays than saturdays so we keep ourselves to saturday. Sometimes both days, but mainly...

Today I was playing with a picture I shot at Sagrada Familia a couple of weeks ago. (Hey, I do shoot other buildings, too... Occasionally!) I think the original was OK; all it needed was two adjustment layers: Levels and Contrast . However, I started zooming the picture in, to see the details better (Sagrada Familia is full of interesting details!), and I liked the statue of Christ; the expression on his face, the way his wrists are crossed... And I thought this detail would deserve a little...

Although knitting is supposedly for my own entertainment only, I still find myself considering expectations and norms. We all fall for this sometimes -or I at least would like to think that I am not the only one who might borrow the latest prize winner from the library just because it's a...

I am walking out of these rooms.The time that I feared is now here. I have been processing it in my head for a long time and by the most creative methods that I have possibly thought of, finding explanations why is it good to go. But I am no wiser. There is a cloud hanging over me, and I have a feeling that as the shores of Tallinn disappear into the horizon I'll be in tears despite all the mental preparation. The children, once again, are my saviour. I want to see them, and because of them I...

This post will be different. No nice photos nor any other kind of photos either. This post will enclude my unhappy thoughts, as well there might be even brutal expression. This might be also political, if it would be read like it is - it is left to reader to decide. And it is also possible to not go on reading, if you just choose so. I have been reading a lot of news lately. Even though I already know, it is not good for me. And I have read comments on web. It is like a dope. You know it will...

He was born in Russia and had attended the St. Petersburg Conservatory with Jascha Heifetz. It was a strict place. If a kid played a wrong note, they would hit him over the knuckles with a ruler. JW: Was your dad a good teacher? LN: My dad was a great violinist but had no patience for kids who didn’t get it immediately. With the violin, you...
