Moving along...

So yes, it's pack, pack, pack here in Freezerville. RMATS and I are moving into a new flat just under 1km away, and it has a sauna! Hooray!

We got the keys today, and already took a couple of boxfulls of stuff to the new place. I almost wrote 'to the new pad' but I realised that nobody calls their apartment a 'pad'. Sheesh.

Anywho, so far part of the kitchen and livingroom have been packed, and I tells ya - we have too much crap. No way we'll fit all of this in the new place...

But that's all for now, so ttfn!

8 things about me

Well, since my sis pretty much tagged with this, spose I'll go on with revealing random tidbits about me.

1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged write their own blog post about their eight things and include these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and that they should read your blog.

The Things

1. Within the last 6 months I've started wearing skirts, which I haven't really done voluntarily in about 6 years, which is when I realised that knees aint pretty.

2. I don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

3. I like knitting

4. I bruise easily, and find furniture with my knees and toes. This also explains the non-pretty knees.

5. There was a stage in my life when I owned 7 pairs of jeans.

6. I like alliteration a lot. This is why I really like the Kalevala-saga and how it sounds when read out loud.

7. I wish I could form witty limericks on the spot.

8. This time could and probably should have been spent working on my thesis, but here I don't have to worry about correct referencing.

And since I'm not cool enough to know 8 people, I'm only nominating 2 to do this - Eeva and Perth Pedestrienne!

Back again, ready to get to work with that thesis!

Yessirree, back from Ireland, the trip went quite nicely, though was somewhat money consuming. But tis besides the point.
The point is, that I'm back in Freezerville again, and now I need to be getting on with that thesis of mine.

Not just talking about avoiding it, or avoiding it, or talking about doing it, but actually doing it.


So I should make myself a schedule and stick to it. Which I'm horrible at. It's always easier when there's someone telling you what to do.

The good news though is that Scrubs and Grey's Anatomy have finished for the year, so not even my nearly-legal downloading habits can help me procrastinate. Here's hoping I won't find any new series to obsess about...

Who knows, I might get something productive done in the next few weeks, before I can wholeheartedly focus my attention the newest Harry Potter book. Which I've preordered. Because I'm that cool.

Tally ho!

Crazy Irish..

And I'll be going over to see them!

A couple of friends, RMATS and myself are heading to Dublin for a few days, so hooray hooray for that. Should be funtastic and Guinness galore!

Other than that, life is spent avoiding my thesis, hooray =).

And now I got nothing.

So you're back, from outer space..

..Or Australia, same dif, really.

Indeed, my dear minions, I am back, and have been for a week. The trip went brilliantly, sister did indeed get herself married and was all pretty and hooray, and I have a brother-in-law now. How crazy is that? Crazy.

The trip was filled with meeting up with folk and twas good. Oh, and I also saw 300 (meh) and Hot Fuzz (Simon Pegg is brilliance).

But now I'm back, and I tells ya, back to the hectic pace of my normal life. For the first half of the week I struggled to stay up past 9pm, and woke up around 8. Now I'm back to the normal, healthy rythm - up till 1am, sleep till 11. The way it's intended to be.

I've also watched 3 seasons of Scrubs (3-5, watched 1&2 before the trip). If only I could have a Dr Cox of my own...

Ahh, and on Friday, I got quite shickered, and apparently walked like Jack Sparrow when heading for a taxi.

So yes, it's been busy.

Downloading all I can of season 6 as we speak, or rather, as I type.

Anywho, now for some more assignment avoiding, and then off to play Trivial Pursuit with the gals. Yarr.

Sidenote: Due to the excessive Scrubs-ing, I now have a JD-voice narrating everything I do. It makes my geeky mind feel cooler.

Pretty shoes.

I just bought myself a pair of really really pretty shoes today, and they deserve a post of their own.

That's all.

A long, long, time ago, I can still remember...

... how I used to blog twice a week.

Not really happening these days, now is it?
Well, anywho,let's see what's been going on.

We've had this week off as a traditional 'Ski Holiday', though I haven't done any skiing. Anywho, last weekend saw the 60th birthday of my godfather, and so we headed down to party, and of the 100+ people there, I was in the minority lot of sober folk. But twas good, nice and dandy anyhow, nice to see relatives and that lot.

Then we headed back to Freezerville, I spent half a day here, and then the next day headed to Vaasa, to celebrate my cousins birthday. Twas fun indeed.

Now once again back in Freezerville, and thoroughly avoiding study. Though I need to do a research plan sometime soon, so I might get on with it. Or not, you never know, really.

By the way, aside my thesis I've got 3 courses to go yet, 2 of which are well on their way already. Christ, I'll be needing to graduate soon, become a functioning member of the society, istead of mooching off the government. Bastards.

Other than that, nothing much. In a few weeks I'll be heading down to Australia, so hooray hooray for that =). Can't wait, as it shall be all things brilliant. Though I'll probably be jetlagged till we get back, but still. Minor detail.

That's yarr folks!


If you're feeling sad and lonely, there's a service I can render...
