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 🙂

Vyötiäisiä

ARMADILLOS
Vyötiäiset_n
Kerällä oleva vyötiäinen on siistein asia, mihin olen viime aikoina törmännyt (tosin vain Googlen kuvahaussa).
Curled-up armadillo is the coolest thing I’ve seen lately (only in the Google Image Search, though).

KOTIMATKA – JOURNEY HOME
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…”

CRISIS SOLVERS
Gaiverruksia115_n
”I’m going to Scotland, which is super nice of course, but I have to travel with hand luggage only (because I don’t want to pay 30 euros extra…)…” //
”…so I can’t take my Swiss Army Knife with me!” //
”How do you think I’ll survive my adventures without my faithful weapon?!” //
”’A warrior’s most important weapon is not his sword but his mind.'” //
”MacGyver! What are you doing here?” ”Nothing. This is all just your imagination.” //
”I don’t recall you ever saying any wise things like that, either.” ”Like I said, your imagination.” //
”Fascinating…” ”Hey! That’s my line!” //
”And why wasn’t I invited to solve this crisis?” ”This was kind of a… pocket knife thing.” ”Fair enough.”

Jediarkistojen kätköistä

FROM THE JEDI ARCHIVES

On ollut viime aikoina aika haipakkaa, niin saatte tyytyä joskus yläasteelle taiteilemaani sarjakuvaan ”Darth X ja jäinen kanankoipi”.
I’ve been rather busy lately so you’ll have to settle for this little ”Darth X and the Frozen Chicken” comic I made back in middle school.
Darth X_n
Meillä oli yläasteella Lumihevosen kanssa tällainen ”Inspiraatio-vihko”, johon piirtelimme kolmen vuoden ajan kaikkea randomia. Niin paljon hevosia… Oikeastaan kyseisiä vihkoja kertyi lopulta vuosien varrella viisi, mutta loput niiden sisältämästä taiteesta saavat jäädä pöytälaatikkooni.
During middle school, Snowhorse and I had this ”Inspiration notebook” in which we drew all sorts of random stuff. And so many horses. In the end we had five of those notebooks over the years but the rest of the art in them will remain in my drawer.

Kymmenen minuutin sääntö

TEN MINUTE RULE
Gaiverruksia113_n
”Hello!” ”It’s so nice that you could come and help me!” //
”Guests will be here in a hour. Would you slice these fruits while I clean up the living room?” ”Okay.” //
”Aaargh! The window is full of little dogs’ muzzle prints!” //
”Do I have the time to wash that window? Yes, I do, if I do it quickly.” //
”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
!”

In the Zoological Museum of Turku: ”Oh, cool, look Mum!” //
”Oh, yuck! Those are so gross, aren’t they?” //
”You just can’t like such disgusting creatures!” //
”What is wrong with you?! There isn’t ANY animal that is disgusting, repellent or somehow wrong! Every living creature is AMAZING and WONDERFUL as it is!” //
”And at least don’t ruin your child’s interest in animals with your own alienated-from-nature attitude!” //
”Well okay, I didn’t get violent or even said anything but I was thinking this way. And I still do. So there.”
