Being a busy Christmas

Sorry for the silence; many things started to move at the same time, and unfortunately World of Warcraft is also taking up a big chunk of my time. I can't recommend it, if you want to retain even an inkling of control of your life.

In the mean time, feast your eyes on this...

<phone call>

Ehm. I can't remember what I was going to write about. They accepted our offer! We're gonna be living in Espoo next year! Whee! Extra exclamation mark! ;-)

Update: you know, I just realized that getting paid more just means that you can afford to take more debt. There's something deeply wrong in all this. It's a vicious cycle.


Congrats! Now you just need the 2.5 kids, boat, Volvo and summer cottage and you can live the dream ;)

I always thought it was a kid, a Volvo and two-and-a-half wives. Darn!

Tervetuloa vaan. ;) Kertokaa kun teillä on muuttopäivä, niin katsotaan saanko keitettyä talkoosoppaa. :)

welcome to the 'burbs, amigo.

--AnonymousCoward, 21-Dec-2005

no, i'm not a coward, nor am i anonymous.

just forgot to change my name in the field below.

y'see? living in the 'burbs can mess with your mind! run away! resistance is not futile!

--charlie, who else?, 21-Dec-2005

Hehe, so the anonymous coward thing works :)

Thanks, Kristel, we'll let you know.

I recommend an early 90's 740 STW or maybe a bit younger 940 STW if you feel particularly Epooish. Hell, be wild and get an 960! 2.0 Turbo will get you around, but the 2.3/2.4 Turbo will be much better (and the oil companies will love you with 13-15L/100km).

PS. Mornings are the best when the roads are still icy.

PPS. Just realized that I have 2.5 kids. Damn. And our house is red. No summer cottage though...

You must not forget the golden retriever!

--Simo, 22-Dec-2005

Or was it a half a golden retriever? Can't remember. One of the things must be halved. Let's see:

  • Halve the car? No, you can't get anywhere.
  • Halve the house? No, that would be cold.
  • Halve the wife? Err. No.
  • Halve the kids? Undoubtedly fun, but might result in a jail sentence.
  • Halve the dog? NO! Try that, and I shall halve YOU. No joke.

I am confused now.
