Ready for take off

So, last week I finally got around to seeing Les Miserables. S agreed to go with me and we were lucky enough to get the very last tickets, so of course the seats weren't exactly the best in the house, but good enough. I must say I really liked it. There were moments that weren't fantastic, but the end was very moving.

Now I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that the strike won't affect my flight tomorrow. Paris, here I come! (Hopefully)

It's the freaking arctic circle, of course it's gonna snow!! stop acting stupid you idiots!

Stupid ass VR (national railway company)!! I have absolutely no sympathy for you! These kind of weather conditions are absolutely normal in this country, and I don't get how you can manage to screw up the timetables like this every fucking year!!! Yes, we are in the north, YES it snows here every year!! Do something about your equipment!! Global warming isn't happening that fast, there are still several cold winters ahead. And you've had several cold winters to practice!! And still we seem to be having this same problem year after year! I'm done, this relationship is over!! Fuck you and go to hell!!

In other words, I'm on the train on my way home from work. Should have been at home 15 minutes ago, but the train is about one hour late. I'm hungry and tired and grumpy! At least they could serve coffee and tea for free in my opinion. This is what you get with monopoly. It serve's only one part, the monopolist. Everybody else loses. What is this, communism?

Did you know about this, Jani?

Went to see Hurjaruuth's winter show. It was better than I had anticipated! I actually really liked it! But there was one thing that really bothered me... The juggler! What a rip off! I wonder if Mr Nakkinen has seen that show? The guy stole all his tricks. I say not cool at all!! Shame shame shame!

On a completely different subject, read this article in DN on relationships and how men and women have different attitudes towards cheating. Very interesting! For those of you that speak swedish, here you go!

Next week, Paris! I hear P is already there!

When nothing makes you feel

I'm missing the decadence of the summer...

There are plans for a party extraordinaire, but we are having trouble setting the date. Hopefully it will be this weekend.

Need to go out, need art, need theatre! Aaaarrrggh!

Loves me, loves me not...

On the train, on my way home from our capital on Saturday, I ended up sitting next to this lady of about 60 years of age. My seat was taken so since the one next to her was free I figured it's less of a hassle to sit next to her than to ask the guy sitting on my seat to move all his stuff.

I was planning to do some reading, have a bunch of articles that need to be read. Got the papers out and everything. Then this lady starts talking. As I think it's important to be polite to people I listened and asked a few questions. I also believe in the importance of NOTICING people. We all have a need to be seen and heard. This lead to us having a conversation for the next two hours, that is, until we were in Turku. Her husband had died three years ago, and she told me about how she still cries over him, how she misses him, and how she can't imagine ever meeting a new man. She also told me they had been married for 40 years, and that she had known from the second she saw him, that he was The One. I told her I am sorry for her loss, but that I think she's very fortunate to have gotten to experience such love, it is not something we all have the privilege of experiencing. I'm glad she told me her story, it gives me hope. Maybe real love isn't just a fairytale fantasy fed to us by Hollywood. Maybe it really exists.

Back home I was sooo sooo very tired. Fell asleep around 8.30 pm and woke up the next morning around 9.30 am. 13 hour sleep. Not bad!

Even my plants are dying!

Just read my first post in this blog. It was written on a Saturday night. Right now is Friday night. And again I am at home. I guess it's just this time of the year...up here in the north it gets so freaking dark! It's as if all life just leaves my being. I have no interest in doing anything. And I have absolutely no understanding for those who like this time of the year, candles, darkness, red wine, movies, warm blankets, that's what they talk about. I say fuck that! I prefer my wine in the light of day.

But I try to keep my eyes on what is to come. This month is hard work and no play, but come December and things are quite the opposite! P is coming from Australia, I'm meeting up with him in Paris. After Paris we are coming here, and then Stockholm. From there he will go on to Norway, and I will go on to the States.

For now, I will head out into the darkness and go buy some milk. Maybe also some chocolate. Tomorrow is a new day and I bet it will be rainy. Yay. Crap.

Yup yup, it is official, I need a man! Bought a jar of pickles yesterday, and I still haven't managed to open that stupid jar! It's so tight! I don't usually have this kind of problems, my fingers are quite strong in fact. But no...I need a man!
