* Pieni ViiniBlogi * -

Verikuu ehti mennä jo, mutta sitä muistellessa Ä tarjoilee soolonautinnon: Running Duck Chenin Blanc 2018 hanapakkaus (puulaakin tuotenumero 598588). Hinta on 21,99 euroa ja tilavuus kaksi (2) litraa. Läikehtikö viini vai kaiho? Ä: Yksinänsä kaihoaa, ja täysikuuta odottaa. "Sammuu rusko illan, pimeytyy jo maa. Joen poikki sillan hämy rakentaa. Sumun harmaan kansa meloo ruuhineen. Vesi uomassansa soluu hiljalleen." Einari Vuorelan ajatuksista, viinistä lohdun saa. Ä katsoo...

Happy Training for Masochist's Dream -

23.5 -biking 18 K in the morning and 18 K in the afternoon, about 45-50 minutes per time. Biking is a new innovation to end pollution and climate heating. It is also a handy way to get to the work place. Tomorrow I've to bike all the way, some 35 kilometres, because my beautiful classic car got a severe flu (mysterious problems with battery that empty itself). Today I biked only half of the entire journey. 22.5 -implementation of biking to the training program and also to the everyday life...

Planet Procrastination -

Remember, I read this piece by Haruki Murakami in the New Yorker. He is one of my favourite writers, and also a jazz-aficionado and a long distance runner. He runs every day. He probably writes every day. Don't know how much he jazzes every day, but that's beside the point.I said I wanted to run and write every day, because that'd help me write my thesis and also get me fit. Then life happened

Apertoire -

It was -24 C in Finland during my xmas holiday there but it did not prevent me from photographing. Cold weather like that just requires some preparations. The most important one for your gear is to prevent condensation. Condensation happens when cold camera is brought indoors. Fog appears on lens surfaces etc and that moist can damage your camera internals as well. Preventing condensation is simple. You need put a camera inside a plastic bag before entering indoors. Wrapping camera inside a bag...

It's About Me, Amoena -

I ran a half marathon yesterday. I felt that maybe I should blog something about it, since most people consider it a quite big deal. I, on the other hand, have really mixed feelings now when I have actually finished it. It was just so much easier than I expected. I expected it to be kind of a struggle but in the reality it was just a really long run. I wasn't considerably different than my regular 10km runs. I signed up in February. I wanted to sign up as early as possible so I wouldn't chicken...

A journey to a healthier life. -

I've never, ever, ever have liked running. Never. In fact, I even remember my gym class teacher once telling me that I couldn't run. Like that was a hard fact that couldn't be changed. At least after then, I've never even tried jogging. This autumn I've taken a project to start living at least a little bit healthier. So, as a part of my project, I went walking (speed-walking, you might say) around two weeks ago, for the first time in an extremely long time. I didn't go alone, no, I had my iPod...

Roadside Burger Blog -

This was my second burger with a journalist from Helsingin Sanomat. He's making a story about hamburgers and I was interviewed for the article while tasting several burgers. Harrin nakki (Harri's Hotdog) is a typical Finnish grill kiosk. A little booth standing in the corner of local park in the middle of Helsinki. Back in the days the architecture varied from trailers to wooden booths but the city of Helsinki standardized the outlook of these kiosks a few years back. This particular kiosk has...

outrageous outings -

on my way to nyc last november, i realized a long awaited dream of mine. visiting iceland had been on the list of to-dos for years, and the opportunity presented itself almost accidentally. friends were heading over to airwaves festival in reykjavik and offered their couch for me to crash on on my way. the layover on icelandair costs no extra, so well, why the hell not. the festival packs the city with music fans from all over the world, and therefore my experience probably wasn't the most...

i realized last summer that i had not had the opportunity to enjoy the holidays that i had earned. since i worked for a project that lasted only till the end of the year, i was presented with a few weeks of leisure. add overtime, and there was plenty. last fall there were five weeks left, so on a plane i hopped to see a dear friend. sandy had visited just a few days before, and i landed into a city that was moved by donation rallies, a barely working subway system, was to be hit by a blizzard...

Just for fun -

I'm taking the basic or introductory course on operating systems which pretty much means reading about 600 pages of Tanenbaum's Modern Operating Systems and then going to the final exam. Some of things in the book like solving the classical IPC (InterProcess Communication) problems using the different IPC primitives (semaphores, monitors etc.) that include writing pseudocode. I think I'll understand and remember them better by writing them down as blog entries with possibly illustrations. This...

Such a rare treat to spend a weekend in Sydney nowadays. Deviant and I spend all our time running up and down the coast and never really get to enjoy the city life anymore.Well, this long weekend was a refreshing change.We went to see a joined album launch gig by The Snowdroppers and Nici Blue Eyes on Saturday. And I have to say, it was one of the most enjoyable gig nights out I've ever

The Classic Short Boot from UGG Australia is a rugged, handsome boot with an eight-inch shaft length. Like all UGG Boots, it is made of genuine Grade A sheepskin with the fleece turned inward to take advantage of its natural thermal properties. This boot has the typical UGG style with its dome-shaped toe and prominent stitching. Of course, the UGG boots label is displayed on the heel. The outsole is made of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), a durable plastic that can take considerable stress...

Nyt on pakko sanoa, ettei mulle äkkiseltään tule mieleen montakaan elokuvaa, jotka olisivat vaikuttaneet muhun yhtä vahvasti kuin Sean Pennin ohjaama, tositapahtumiin perustuva Into the Wild . Kannattaa katsoa, en uskalla lähteä kuvailemaan sitä sen tarkemmin, sillä pelkäänpä, etten ikinä voisi tehdä oikeutta tälle mahtavalle elokuvalle. Olen ihan myyty. Kuvat

Pikitietä pitkin -

Satu herää Hammaslahdella, Joensuun vieressä. Kello on yksitoista aamulla ja Sadulla on ollut kylmä yö. Hän on nukkunut pelkässä makuupussissa paljaalla maalla. Auringonpaiste ja lintujen laulu ovat tunkeutuneet kauniina hänen ohueen uneensa. Nyt aurinko on jo korkealla ja on lämmittänyt yön tärissyttä matkaajaa. Satu aukaisee makuupussin vetoketjun, että jo kuumuudeksi kehittynyt lämpö pääsee tasaantumaan. Hän makaa selällään ja katselee sinistä taivasta. Tässä mä...

Christmas, the most commercial religious holiday of all is approaching. One might think that the materialistic, carnevalistic celebration of religious holidays would not have reached Bhutan yet – wrong. The two tsechu s, religious festivals I have testified in Thimphu, the capital and in Bumthang, Central Bhutan have had a vast selection of attractions outside the official programme of sacred dances ( cham ): gambling, drinking, dancing girls...you know, the usual things you would associate...

Jotenkin edellisestä postauksesta on päässyt vierähtämään melkein kuusi viikkoa... No, mä syytän ihmissuhde- ja autokoulustressiä. Nyt pahin lienee onneksi ohi ja neulominen huvittaa taas, ehkä musta tulee vielä kunnon bloggaajakin. Looks like it's almost six weeks since my last posting... I'm blaming it on the stress caused by learning to drive and human relationships. The worst phase ought to be over now and I fancy knitting again, though, so maybe I'll return to being a proper...

Gagan ( From My Lil Window) -

For the last few days, I think my most frequently visited page was Google maps (to plan my euro trip)... oh how easy it is now-a-days to plan a trip! Other than making a trip plan, probably everyone has tried to zoom on the roof of their house, or walked around the street using street view. That's fun for a while. Anyways, while the google car is silently driving by your window, capturing of interesting moments are inevitable. Kids falling... running box...non-stop fun :D source: streetviewfun...

Wild joys and wilder sins -

I’m on a study break right now. A month of independent studying at home before the final exams. I guess it’s relaxing in a way, not having to worry about school stuff or work. On the other hand though, I’m still stressed as hell because I’m not studying enough. Every day is a struggle as I try to force myself to open the books and read and do math and make notes. I set a goal of 5 hours per day but I’ve already fallen behind. Today, I studied for about 2-3 hours. WHERE THE HELL IS MY...

Imevä Pingviini -

Miltä tuntuu silloin kun linux alkaa vituttamaan, äsken tuli taas niin kova vitutus, että päätin taas kerran unohtaa koko paskan. Samalla kun vitutus alkoi tajusin miten sen voisi selittää sellaiselle ihmiselle joka ei ole linuxia asentanut. Normaalisti kun tietokone ei toimi löytyy helpistä tai netistä hyvät tai ainakin jonkinlaiset ohjeet. Tätä voitaisiin verrata vaikkapa siihen, että olet eksynyt vieraassa kaupungissa ja kysyt tietä joltain joka puhuu sujuvaa suomea ja neuvoo...

Hetki on vierähtänyt viimeisimmästä rutinasta ja taas on ehtinyt tapahtua vaikka vallan mitä. Takana on jälleen toinen toistaan parempia kesämuistoja ja uskon, että niitä ehtii löytyä vielä myös edestäpäin. Muuton vaihe ja läksiäisbileet Muuttohommat ovat edenneet hurjan hyvin ja lähes kaikki muuttoa edeltävät toimenpiteet on tehty.

Busy with people, but now few days alone. It feels good to sit in the dark and have the headphones on, listen to Dusky's Lost in you very loud and feel the evening. It's autumn, once again. I love how everything slows down, green colour is bursting into the shades of yellow, red, brown. I also feel some kind of longing for... what? Maybe the old days. I hope that one day I can try riding again. I quit my lessons when I was young because I was too afraid to call to the stable and make a...

A new novel from Stephen Baxter! Well, it was first published 2006, but it was nevertheless completely new to me. I had never heard of this new historical series, and I found this first book very captivating. From the back of the book: "Brica lives on the cold northern edge of the Roman Empire. As she struggles through a painful labour she begins to scream out a series of words in Latin. A language she has never heard before, much less spoken. Only later does it become clear that the woman has...

Ajattelin seurata pelinjohtajamme Mikan ( darth_rattus  ) esimerkkiä ja kirjoittaa entryjä tuoreesta ropestamme, mikäli jotakuta kiinnostaa lukea kuvauksia. Pelaamme siis "vanhaa" kunnon Vampirea, jonka kaupunkikonseptin Mika on muokannut mieleisekseen. Cutin alla ovat hahmoprofiilit ja kaupungin/tilanteen kuvaus englanniksi, olen lisännyt hieman olennaista infoa hahmoista kunkin kohdalle, jos olen kokenut sen tarpeelliseksi. Mahdollisimman pian postaan oman kirjoitelmani eilisestä ja...

So we must plough on to discover the truth. Another day's rest is behind the hopes of the Camarilla, and they decide to make an undercover appearance at the Night Club Crux to poke around. C is lucky enough to land another 1600's ensemble, and being a smart Malkavian, goes for a nun's habit, which fits in great at a contemporary Goth club. At this point there had been some speculations among the five, that one of the piles of ash found at the Prince's haven were far too grainy to have come from...
