”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.”

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.

”Oh, Gattus! What do you want?” //
”And Miles, too?” //
”Now if you jump on my face I’ll make mittens of your skin, Miles.” //
”Where did you go now? Hey?”

”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…”

”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!”

”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!”

Muutoksia blogissa

CHANGES IN THE BLOG

Huomasin, että minulla oli esittelytekstinä ikivanhoja sarjiksia, joiden tiedot ovat lakanneet olemasta relevantteja jo vuosi sitten. Siispä tein uudet. Loytyvät yläpalkista klikkaamalla tuota ”Mitä kummaa?” -napiskaa.
Toinen uusi sivu ylhäällä on ”Scotland Edition”, jonne olen kerännyt kaikki Skotlannin-vaihtoni aikaiset sarjakuvat kronologiseen järjestykseen. Alunperinhän tämän blogin piti kertoa seikkailuistani Skotlannissa, mutta lopulta ”Scotland Edition” taitaa kertoa lähinnä ruoan parantavasta voimasta… Siltä se ainakin näyttää näin jälkikäteen lukien. Lukiessasi vot myös ihmetellä otsatukkani evoluutiota kuukausien kuluessa…

I noticed that my introductory comics were really old and hadn’t been relevant for a year. So I made new ones. You can find them by clicking that ”Mitä kummaa?” part up there.
Another new page up there is called ”Scotland Edition”. I’ve collected all the comics from my time in Scotland in there, they’re in chronological order and now they all have English translations! Originally this blog was supposed to tell about my adventures in Scotland but the it turned out to be about the healing power of food… That’s what it looks like now that I read those comics. While reading, you can also follow the evolution of my bangs…

THE EMPIRE STRIKES

Eli kaksi vitsiä yhden hinnalla!
Two jokes for the price of one!
Vatsaisku_n
The first one probably requires some explaining if you don’t speak Finnish. So, ”The Empire Strikes Back” is known in Finland as ”Imperiumin vastaisku” which translates to ”Empire’s Counter Strike”. But if you switch the T and the S (so that it becomes ”Imperiumin vatsaisku”) it means ”Empire’s Stomach Strike”. I first came up with the Finnish version and tried to translate it, which led to the English version…

NERDY ROMANTICS

”Guess what I think would be the most romantic way for a nerd to propose to another nerd?” ”Yes?” //
”Of course by saying, ’guess what have I got in my pocket’.” ”That would be romantic all right.”

THE RIGHT HAND OF… SOMETHING

”Ha! My right hand is big, clumsy and red and I can grab hot objects with it! I’m like Hellboy!” //
”Hey, my hand is made of stone and it’s the right hand of doom and whatnot. You are wearing an oven glove.” ”Well…”

1997, 2007, 2017

”I recently realized that years with a seven in the end hve been important in my life.” //
1997: I was five years old, and this is the firs year I really remember. I took the first photograph of my life. I traveled on an airplane without an adult (with my six-year-old big brother). I learned to read! ”I want a hobby!” I decided to go to art school! //
2007: I found my role model (for real). I started to keep a diary. I went to the first hike of my life. I got my Swiss Army Knife and my pocket watch. //
”Pressure’s on you, this year!” ”You could graduate?”
