Oh, I think it's time to me to go to sleep. Just look what I am writing. My doings are getting a bit tired. I'm going to listen to Bach's Air and then drag myself to bed. I should have gone to sleep almost one and a half hours ago but I can't resist staying up when my parents are not home. Ok, no one's even interested anymore. Good night.
Umm, I'm not sure if this is a real problem or if it is meant to be like that, but there is always a few minutes delay before I can see the updates. Meaning that when I add a word or a comment or something, I have to wait five minutes or so before I can see it on the front page. It's a bit irritating and I just want to know if it's only me or everyone else, too.
Oh, frindley, I'm really proud of the musical life here. We have so many opportunities to take an interest in music. Personally I play the flute, sing in the choir and am in the music class (which means that we have more music lessons than the normal students).
And whichbe, I live in an apartment building (it's a very common thing in Finland) so I guess it's OK if you sleep in our backyard. You just have to watch out for the children of the neighbourhood, and the official authority if some neighbour calls the police because of some lurker in the backyard.
Well, I found this link. There are pictures of all of the scout calendars before the doors are opened. Unfortunately the text is in Finnish, but when you click the blue links, you can search the different decades.
Oh my. The advent calendars appeared in our local stores in October. I was very shocked because the Christmas stuff comes to the shops earlier and earlier every year. Or maybe I just haven't noticed before.
Oh, and the point was that they are common in Finland, too. The children like chocolate calendars but then there are those ones which have pictures in them. The advent calendar of The Guides and Scouts of Finland is very famous here and it's always very interesting and has a high quality.
This is a word that even the Finns consider as a bit odd. No one ever uses it because it means something about 'wedding night intuition', but the children think it's funny because it has so many vowels in a row.
