I have to learn to be more aggressive. I booked 30 mins of internet time in this here Kirjakaapeli-Kabelboken Library thingy here in Helsinki, and just as I go to sit down this weirdo jumps in front of me and says he has to send an email and will NOT be moved and now I only have 18 minutes left and the library staff can't restart the clock. So this is it for a week or so.
Stockholm was rockin. The highlight for me was the Musik Museet, you get to play all these wacky instruments like hurdy gurdys and harps. And electronic drums, just like the 1980s. I felt like I was in Mike and the Mechanics or something.
Last night I turned into one of those obnoxious young things on a tour, just like I vowed never to be. We were on a big ol ship from Stockholm to Helsinki and I was off my face on wine and vodka and gin. After a drunken dinner I wandered up the promenade babbling away, somehow managing to lose everyone so spent the next hour going up and down elevators and getting rather worried and wandering into plants. Rhiannon finally rescued me. Next it was off to the karaoke bar and we did a cracking rendition of Dancing Queen. Nooo! Not karaoke! I don't want to be one of those silly young things on tour, WHAT HAVE I BECOME!!
I cannae find anything on this Finnish keyboard. Here have some squiggles ¤¤¤ÄÖÅ.
Best thing about these Scandinavian countries, they make you pay for plastic bags at the supermarket. They are not afraid to think about the future. Hurrah!
