FOR SO SMALL A THING

”Someone should go and get the key to the camping center.” ”I don’t have the time.” ”Me neither.” ”Okay, I’ll go and get it.” //
”Is it not a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt for so small a thing? So small a thing!” ”You said it, Boromir.”

Talvileirin ahkerat kokit

THE HARD-WORKING COOKS OF THE WINTER CAMP

Eli mitä kokkikaksikko puuhaa kun ei ole keittiössä.
Aka. what does the chef duo do when they’re not in the kitchen.

”When’s the food ready?” ”In a minute!”

Mainittakoon, että ruoka ei ollut koskaan myöhässä.
Disclamer: the food was never late.

My Snoke theory sucks

Note: I don’t like the new Star Wars movies, and I really don’t like this thing about disliking people’s theory of Snoke’s origins. However, my Snoke theory here is so extremely bad that I actually encourage you to dislike it.

The death stick seller’s name is by the way Elan Sleazebaggano, full Wookiepedia article on him here. It takes more time to read the article than to watch all the scenes he actually has on screen. Which is just one scene of approximately 14 seconds.

”I participated a Harry Potter themed LARP where we were stranded in an inn during a magical snowstorm. My character was an environmentalist and a griffin activist Fern Marlowe. She was asked some weird questions.” //
”How much age difference do you and your sister have?” //
”Could you keep this invisibility cloak for us?” //
”Are you a werewolf?” //
”What is your opinion on house elves?” //
”Can I see your coat?” //
”What do you have in that suitcase you guard so closely?” ”Nothing!”


”Actually I was smuggling an orphaned griffin egg. No one found it. Which was unfortunate, in a way.” //
”It’s going to hatch soon. If the chick is a boy, I’ll name him Billy. If it is a girl, she’s gonna be Billie.” //
”I don’t think I thought this through.” ”Hungry! HUNGRY! HUNGRY!

ICE SKATING 101

”This is how you can get some speed… Push with the spikes in the front, like this.” //
”Yes, that’s it! With the spikes!” ”No, not with the spikes…” //
”Uh… what was the thing about the dark side again?” ”Quicker it is, easier, more seductive.” ”And it inevitably leads to suffering when you hit your jaw in the ice.”

Klikkaa isommaksi! / Click to see the picture bigger!

Vedin nuorille syysleirillä pöytäroolipelin, johon ihan kaikki leirillä olleet halusivat osallistua. Porukka piti siksi jakaa kahteen ryhmään, jotka nimesivät itsensä Ryhmä Mansikaksi ja Ryhmä Persikaksi. Yllä on minun tulkintani seikkailun hahmoista, vasemmalla Persikat ja oikealla Mansikat. Kaikki hahmot ovat pelaajiensa itse luomia, ja nämä ovat tosiaan minun tulkintojani, jotka perustuvat pelaajien kuvauksiin ja piirustuksiin hahmoistaan sekä omiin muistikuviini pelistä. Keksin paljon yksityiskohtia kuvaan itse ja osa niistä on varmasti väärin, mutta pelaajat tunnistanevat hahmonsa. Olen edelleen hämmästynyt siitä, kuinka hienoja ja erilaisia hahmoja pelaajat kehittivät, ja oli muuten todella hauska peli. Koska otetaan uusiksi?

On the autumn camp I led a table top role playing game for the youngsters and every single person on the camp wanted to participate. Therefore we had to divide the participants in two groups who named themselves Team Strawberry and Team Peach. Above you can see my interpretation of the characters, Peaches on the left and Strawberries on the right. All characters were created by their players, and these are indeed my interpretations based on descriptions and drawings by the players and my own memories of the game. I came up with many details in the picture and some of them are surely wrong but I think players can identify their characters. I’m still amazed by the awesome and diverse characters the players created, and the game was really much fun. When are we gonna play the second round?

Kaikkien aikojen kolmas episodi

THE THIRD EPISODE EVER

On a camp in 2011 //
”Hi… You’ve still got fever?” ”Yeah…” //
”How are the campers?” ”I talked about Star Wars with this one girl.” //
”Or rather about the numbers of the movies. Whether the original movies should be called Episodes I, II and III…” //
”…or IV, V and VI since there’s the prequel trilogy, too. And officially those are Episodes I, II and III.” //
”In the end we decided that it’s best to talk about the movies by their names than their numbers. It’s better to say that ’Yoda dies in The Empire Strikes Back’…” //
”…than ’Yoda dies in Episode V’.” ”I agree…” //
”…except Yoda dies in The Return of the Jedi.”

CHRISTMAS EPISODE 2018

Se on hauska, kun tietää, että Tohtori todella sanoi näin jaksossa The Woman Who Fell to Earth.
It’s funny when you know that the Doctor really said that in the episode The Woman Who Fell to Earth.

MacGyver meets Doctor Who + Kati is there for some reason, too //
”We have to get out of this locked-up shed!” ”Anyone got ideas?” //
”I could use this.” ”Ooh!” ”What is it?” //
”It is my sonic screwdriver.” //
”Well I say screwdriver but it’s a bit more multipurpose than that. Scanner. Diagnostics. Tin opener.” ”Hey!” ”More of a… sonic Swiss Army knife.” ”We’ve got – ” //
”Only without the knife. Only idiots carry knives.” MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Hi Kati, we saw this butterfly in Croatia. What do you think it is? //

Hi! I’m in a company party and we’re arguing whether a bunny and a hare are the same thing. Or are they different species but same animal? //
