It's About Me, Amoena -

Over a year ago I met my old school friend by accident. I had not seen her for years, I think it had been like seven years since I had seen her the last time. But there she was, suddenly, in the same train with me. We quickly chatted, shared quick updates about our lives, ans agreed to stay in touch and meet up again. Well. I am not exactly good at organizing things. All I ever want to do is to stay home with my boyfriend. I don't want to go outside my own little home. And she was bad at...

Starbirds, perhaps -

What is your name? My name? I'm Minea Lintunen. And yes, I know what the surname means. 'Little bird.' Look at me! Do you see anything little about me? No, I don't. So you're not little. What are you, physically? I'm large. I'm huge. Oh, not fat, not that. I'm tall. I'm broad. I got muscles. The guy who said women can't grow enormous muscles by exercising was dead wrong. But your muscles are not that big. Oh yeah? Look at these damned biceps ! They're impressive. But I've seen bigger, you know...

The Real Encyclopedia -

Question: Why hasn´t there been any new Q&A´s during the past month? Answer: The problem is that at the moment most of the problems in this world are solved. I have spent the last month trying to create more problems so that the demand for this type of encyclopedia would remain. Other option would be to expand this to other galaxies which still have unsolved problems. I haven´t decided which road I will follow. Fortunately, I can guarantee that the problem solving continues. NEWSLETTER I...

UPDATE: AN OLD TEXT FROM 2013 - WANTED TO SHARE IT STILL TO SHOW MY FEELINGS AT THAT TIME! "It's been a crazy first year of being an entrepreneur and I wanna share some highlights and memories of the trip. I hope this coming year I'll have more time  take more time to blogging again to keep you guys (hello? Anyone there anymore?) updated on the ongoing projects and just daily crazyness. This year has been full of surprises, laughter and cries, sometimes feeling like my head will explode of too...

Introduction             Coming up on this third paper, by far this was my favorite paper to write. This paper is much like my previous paper where I had to find a cultural artifact. However I had to find a cultural artifact that represents my community. With so many things I could’ve chosen from I wanted to make sure the object I chose impacted me in an immense way.             I looked into my family traditions carefully choosing the right one where I could compare to...

Part of my world -

This post is going to be in English! Just for the fun of it and more so, because of the loo-oo--ng text I'm enclosing is in English. I have seen the light. I have been inspired. I want to share it with you! Some time ago I got this book recommendation from my brother-in-law. I haven't even finished it yet (I can't wait to get to the "Growth and religion" part!) and still it is mind extending. The book is called The Road Less Travelled and it is written by M. Scott Peck. It is "A new psychology...

My friend sent me this and I found it both amusing and nostalgic. I shortened it to include only the computer companies which I had a personal interest and of course DEC , my previous employer: Image via Wikipedia If IBM made toasters... They would want one big toaster where people bring bread to be submitted for overnight toasting. IBM would claim a worldwide market for five, maybe six toasters. Image via Wikipedia If Microsoft made toasters... Every time you bought a loaf of bread, you would...

Sommelier blogi -

I am visiting Finland after a long time. The must for every trip is absolutely the wood fire sauna at my parents house. I just need it so badly every time I am in Finland. It has actually been a quite a surprise to notice the absence of saunas in Sweden; and even when chatting about the pleasures of steam with my co-workers, they do not seem to have same kind of craving for this pleasure oasis. What a pity. I actually came to Finland because my very good friend Jonas is celebrating the...

So last century * -

Yes, yes, I know I'm a few days late with this but in my defence I am crazily busy with my final major project for my degree. So what is the consensus on The Great British Sewing Bee ? Image courtesy of Radio Times I unfortunately missed the first 15 minutes and then was constantly interrupted throughout by my father sending me to get bobbins, thread, oil, screwdrivers, machine feet and various other bits every few minutes (he was fixing my singer so I can't complain really). However I think I...

So last century * -

So some of you may have noticed I've been missing from the blogosphere for a while now... the reason being I was pre-occupied with completing my bachelor of arts degree. I am happy to report that I have finished and am now free to do as I please! As I mentioned in a previous post, for my Final Major Project (FMP) I chose to use The Collector by John Fowles as my text and focused on the connection between the study of entomology and serial killer behaviour made in the book. As interested as I am...

Trailing Space -

The RPM Challenge for this year is open. It is a challenge for bands and artists where the goal is to record an album in 28 days. An album is defined here as either 10 songs or 35 minutes of original material and the material must be recorded during February. The idea is to get musicians activated: No waiting for inspiration. Instead, taking action puts one in a position to get inspired. Artists will stumble across ideas they would have never come up with otherwise, and maybe only because they...

The Real Encyclopedia -

I've got many interesting e-mails from all around the world and it was not easy to decide which subject I should discuss. The reason I chose this topic was the urgency. The writer told me that he has serious problems trying to figure out what is this mysterious Nobel Prize all the newspapers are writing about. That is why I´ll give the complete information I have about the Nobel prize. THE NOBEL PRIZE The Nobel Foundation was established in 1900. The first 42 years the name of the foundation...

Sandt Jaarittelee -

Finished reading Mein Kampf (an English translation of it to be exact, not the one filled with notes). There's been a lot of debate among historians as to whether Hitler's policies once he became chancellor followed a careful plan or whether those policies (such as the Holocaust) emerged more spontaneously, as a reaction to changing circumstances. Some Nazi sympathizers even claim Hitler had no choice but to do what he did because of the hostility of his foreign adversaries. To me it's quite...

Tuttuja pistoja -

Tänä aamuna tänne oli vihdoin viimein satanut ensilumen. Jippii! Lisää tätä metritolkulla! Nyt joku kesäihminen tietenkin vetää herneet nenäänsä mutta minä vain kerta kaikkiaan rakastan lunta ja talvea ja kaikkea ihanaa mitä siihen liittyy. Mitä joulukaan olisi ilman lunta? Ja minä, joka olen niiiiin jouluihminen! *** This morning we finally got our first snow. Yippii! More of this! Yes, I know, I know! Now someone who loves summer and warm weather is annoyed about me writing...

East of the Sun -

I almost forgot my promise of the morning pages. Well, no wonder really, since it's already afternoon. That, however, has absolutely nothing to do with my chosen title for today. When I picked up dancing, it really never occurred to me that it would end up as much more than a fun and healthy pastime, with the additional bonus of good leg muscle definition. Ah, to be young(er) and naïve again. Alas, the muscle definition didn't come alone and now I'm riddled with all sorts of things nobody...

Today I heard the first seagulls - winter will be over soon! Here are, however, some pictures from last week when it still was very much winter. And here I am aswell! Slowly returning as the light slowly increases here on these latitudes. Like a Moomin troll I have hibernated from the blogosphere during the darkest months. (I always liked the Moomin winter book the best -well that one, and the one with the flood and the drifting heater - how he, against his nature, wakes up one winter and finds...

XO -

Inspired by Sofia's recent posts The Girl Next Door Paradox and The Slut Paradox  on her blog, I wanted to write about something I've been thinking about a lot lately. It's about the nice guys versus the bad guys conversation that's floating back and forth between the guys and the girls. See now days the nice guys go around the internet telling how they used to be good until some girl broke their poor little heart and by all means forced them to turn into these new found assholes that hurt...

Magic of Life -

The first day of the new year! I was lucky to get to spend the first hour with my boyfriend. Got to meet his sister, too. We looked at their baby pictures. It was strange to see how, based on the pics, his childhood looked very similar to mine. At the same time it was shocking to see how different they were from today's kids' childhood. We wore whatever, played whatever, didn't even know the concept of "being cool". Today a friend of mine arranged a scene. On the phone, but still. She says...

Tänään olen metsästänyt imuriini pölypusseja sillä antaumuksella, että kun vihdoin niitä löysin (kahdeksas kauppa), olin purskahtaa itkuun. Puhtaasta helpotuksesta. Mietin myös moneenko kategoriaan ne miehet, joita deitti-palstoilla pyörii, minun kokemukseni mukaan asettuvat, mutta ajatus ei vielä ole valmis, joten siitä myöhemmin. Sen sijaan oheinen "tietoisku" (emmekö me naiset jo tienneetkin tämän??), joka ehkä selittää tästä maailmankaikkeudesta jotain: MEN PREFER...

Antti Alanen: Film Diary -

Until ten years ago we used to screen nitrate regularly in Finland. We even had extended retrospectives mostly based on nitrate prints, such as a retrospective of the director Ilmari Unho, one of the house directors of the Suomi-Filmi company. Also our Valentin Vaala retrospective was largely based on nitrate. When films are image-driven, based on a painterly vision, "painting with light", to quote the title of the book by John Alton, it is essential to be able to refer to first generation...

Moikka! Tossa lupailin Tracon postausta pari päivää takaperin niin tässä tulee! Tracon on toistaiseksi ainut con Helsingin ulkopuolella missä tulee vuosittain käytyä, ja tänäkään vuonna sitä ei voinut jättää välistä. Viikonloppu oli aika mansikkatäytteinen (heh) koska molemmat cossit liittyi mansikoihin :-D Lauantaina olin Mew Ichigo Tokyo Mew Mew:stä, ja sunnuntaina oltiin Strawberry Panic paricossissa Käävän kanssa.

Kirsi challenged me to tell about the five senses, how cool! 1. Sight: I love to see everything beautiful, whether it is interiors, decorations, nature scenes, flowers, handwork, stitching. Unfortunately this doesn't imply at my house... (see the next challenge :P) 2. Smell: The best scent is clean laundry (dried outside). I like many scents too and would like to light scented candles everyday, also incences, but the rest of the family don't enjoy them. Todhe scent ofay I was enjoying the scent...

How many sportspersons have dated movie stars! How many movie stars have married industrialists! How many industrialists have family alliances with politicians! Sachin Tendulkar is nominated to the Parliament, his century is felicitated by the Ambanis, and his family wedding will be attended by the Bachhans. When Sharukh Khan is stopped at the US airport, when he has a brawl at the cricket stadium, when he plays loud music on his birthday - they're all headlines. Don’t get me started about...

So Friday night I went gambling with my H, mom, dad, and grandma. My dad gave me some money, and so did grandma for gambling. It was a blast. I think the funnest I had was with my dad teaching me the machines. The ONLY time I was really winning anything was with him. When we got there it was stormy, and windy (My kind of weather ;)) We went in, and started playing the slots. I won some cash here, lost some there but was staying pretty balanced. I walked over to my grandma who was playing a...
