Enter hibernation mode

When you can’t even think about going outside without looking like this, then it’s time to hibernate. Too bad my work doesn’t really support full-time hibernation; I have to make an appearance at least a few times a week. Fortunately, I live only a five minute walk away. Unfortunately, that doesn’t decrease the amount of […]

50 Shades of Grey

Helsinki has hit a new record in greyness. The layer of clouds is so thick it’s unbelievable hard to imagine there’s a sun anywhere up there. But at least we still lack snow, so I’m not complaining. I mean… it could be like it’s been these last years (for instance like this which ended like […]

pink cookies and happy pills

drinking my morning coffee from an old winnie the pooh mug and eating a very pink cookie that found its way to my place last night. seriously, who buys pink cookies? it tastes… pink! but anything goes when you’re trying to overdose on allergy pills, pain killers for an aching back and caffeine in the […]


bad mood doesn’t even begin to describe this.  i’m pissed off at the weather (snow is promised for the weekend – oh isn’t that lovely!!), the weekly strikes in this joke they call finland and the icelandic ash that might bugger europe for months to come… what if it will be impossible to leave this […]
