Roolipelejä

ROLE PLAYING
Liseth_n
Liseth Silvergull: ”Seal for breakfast?”

Pääsin taas roolipelaamaan, kun herra Brony otti minut mukaan heidän roolipeliporukkaansa. Hahmoni Liseth on kalastaja, jonka veneen nimi on Hopealokki. Hänen lemmikkinäätänsä Briel toimii Hopealokin ”laivakissana” ja Lisethin uskollisena seuralaisena. Oli hauska pelata, seuraavaa kertaa odotellessa 🙂
I got role playing again when Mr Brony took me to play with his friends. My character Liseth is a fisher who has a boat named Silvergull. Her pet pine marten Briel is Silvergull’s ”ship cat” and Liseth’s faithful companion. It was fun to play, I’m looking forward to the next time 🙂

Gaiverruksia119a_n
”It was so nice that you came for a visit!” ”Indeed!” ”Come back soon!” //
”Of course! Bye then!” ”See you again!” //
”It’s 22.55. Still 10 minutes ’till my bus leaves. Good.” //
”…what? There’s no 22.55 bus to Edinburgh marked here?!” //
”But on the websites it said… Well, I’ll wait for a moment.” //
”Excuse me, I’m waiting for that 22.55 bus to Edinburgh…” ”There is no such bus.” //
”The website lied! But I HAVE to get to the airport, my plane leaves at 6 AM…” //
”Maybe I can still get to Edinburgh by train from Leuchars…”

Gaiverruksia119b_n
”Yes! There’s a night train to London stopping here in 15 minutes! It must go via Edinburgh!” //
”Hi, just to make sure: does this train stop in Edinburgh?” ”No, it doesn’t.” //
”But… I MUST get to Edinburgh! Are there any trains going there before morning?” ”Not that I know of.” //
”You see, my flight leaves at six, and the bus I was supposed to take doesn’t exist despite of what the website said…” ”I’m sorry…” //
”…but there are no trains to Edinburgh at this time, and we don’t stop there either.” ”Okay. Thanks anyway.” //
”Wait… I REALLY shouldn’t do this but…”

Gaiverruksia119c_n
”…hop in. We’ll let you out in Edinburgh.” ”Oh, THANK YOU! Thank you, thank you -” //
”- thank you, thank you, thank you -” //
”- thank you, thank you, THAAAANK YOUUUUU!!!” //
”Thank you, thank you, thank you…” //
”And I’m here only half an hour later than I would have been with that bus.” //
”Now I’ll just wait for four hours for my flight to take off.” //
”Yeah so the smart thing to do when the bus didn’t show up would probably have been to call Mudkip or something… Oh well.” //
”See you again, St Andrews…”

”Aaargh! The window is full of little dogs’ muzzle prints!” //

”I’ll use ten minutes to do this and if it’s not enough then never mind.” //
”Hmm, ten minutes and if it is not enough then never mind… Sounds like a good principle.” //
”Can I use it for my master’s thesis?” ”LOL
!”

Reissu Turkuun

A TRIP TO TURKU

Piti mennä Turkuun kurssille opettelemaan karttaohjelman käyttöä. Ei ollut erityisemmin jännää. Mutta mikä oli kivaa oli se, että serkkuni, hänen vaimonsa, heidän kolmevuotias poikansa, kaksi kissaansa ja herra Pahvi-Spock ystävällisesti majoittivat minut kurssin ajaksi.
I had to go to Turku to learn how to use a mapping program. It wasn’t very exiting. But what was nice was that my cousin, his wife, their three-year-old son, two cats and Mr Cardboard-Spock kindly accommodated me during that course.

”Now if you jump on my face I’ll make mittens of your skin, Miles.” //
”Where did you go now? Hey?”

OVIMIES SPOCK – DOORMAN SPOCK
Gaiverruksia110 b_n
”Eh… Little one, where are you taking Mr Spock?” ”To the front door!” //
”Erm… Why?” ”So that Mum sees him right away when she comes home!” //
”Kati, come here!” ”All right…” //
”Look!” //
”Hahaha… very good… hihihi… job… hehe…” ”Hihihi… well done… hehehe… Little one…”

OVIMIES SPOCK, OSA 2 – DOORMAN SPOCK, PART 2
Gaiverruksia110 c_n
”Yes, we are… Okay. By the way, Spock is by the front door. Yes. Just wanted to let you know.” //
”I’ll take Little one to take a bath. My wife forgot her keys so would you open the door when she comes?” ”Sure!” //
”Welcome to your home.” //
”Is this decent, Mr Spock? Make our guest open the door even when your standing right next to it?” //
”On your century doors open automatically but try to remember that in here they don’t!”

MIELIKUVITUKSEN VOIMA – THE POWER OF IMAGINATION
Gaiverruksia110 d_n
”Hello, wizard?” ”Hello, wizard here.” ”We have a problem.” //
”What kind of a problem?” ”We need to get to the other side but there are chulches in the way.” //
”You mean churches?” ”Yes, and they’re on our way!” //
”Couldn’t we just, like… walk around them?” ”Hmm… Yes!”

OLEN SÖPÖ, VOIN SIIS OLLA ÄÄLIÖ – I’M CUTE, HENCE I CAN BE AN IDIOT

Gaiverruksia101b_n
USING ENERGY ON A SKIING TRIP
Ski 10 kilometers in -20 degrees on forest skis and with a backpack. //
If you fall over, getting up is difficult… because you’re under level zero! ”Help!” //
In the evening shovel off 40 cm of snow… so that you can put up a tent. //
If you still have extra energy, you can always make some more firewood. //

Gaiverruksia101c_n
”It’s half past five and I could already go to sleep.” ”It’s this darkness that falls at four that makes us all tired.” //
”When we go home everyone will ask, ’what did you do all those long dark evenings?’ And we’ll say, ’waited for snow to melt so that we’d have something to drink!'” ”Ha ha ha!” //
”Shall we make food now? Tofu?” ”Sure!” //
”But guess what?” ”What?” ”Or tofu is frozen solid.” //
”There it is now, a tofu in a warm bath.” ”Lucky tofu.”

Gaiverruksia101d_
”It’s nice to sleep in a tent again… Even though…” //
”…there’s no room for me to straighten my legs!” //
”Not good.” ”Nope.” //
”If I could get my feet ON THE TOP of other peoples feet…” //
”Aah.” //
”Hey you need to move your feet, they’re too close to the stove.” //
”Dang.”

On that day we made a snow unicorn.
Gaiverruksia101g_n
On the last day we had to ski 15 kilometers to the bus stop. We woke up at four and got going at six. It was dark. //
Finally we were there. ”We were so fast that it’s still three hours till the bus comes!” ”So what now?” //
”Hey, who’s that guy with the quad bike?” //
”Probably the owner of that farm there.” //
”Are you waiting for the bus that comes at five?” ”Yes.” ”You’re going to get cold.” //
”Here, take some firewood and make a fire under that spruce there. It’ll be nicer to wait that way.” ”Thank you so much!” //
Thanks to everyone fo the great week!
