No more Finnish

I killed the Finnish language side. Felt more like writing in English. Gonna do a redesign, too. Soon, I hope.

Took today off from day work, have to pull all the stuff together in my other work. But you know what? I’m tired and am having a hard time concentrating. Figures.

I’m definitely a noomeejahoor.

Pangs of ludditism

Why are text messages so popular? Just now on the radio I heard that women over 30 send more messages than they talk on the phone. Text messages are considered the most important way to "manage their social lives".

And while I'm at it, I might as well ask: why do people desire to consume DVDs so passionately? I like movies just as—er, actually probably more—than the next guy, but the excitement around DVD buyers doesn't register with me.

Okay, enough of luddite stuff for this morning. My two copies of Learning Python finally arrived last Thursday (Thanks for the help, Grandma!). See, I'm such a nerd, I buy my O'Reilly books two at a time.

Mmm. Can hardly wait for blogBuddy 0.5 to be published.

Diana says she will finally know how much she makes and—understandably worse—spends. I know it still causes my mom pain when she calculates everyday expenses in dollars. Myself, I'm finding that many things actually cost pretty much the same in Finland as they did in the Bay Area.

Somethings—a certain smell, a particular song, a change in season—key intense reminescence. The, feelings, the recaptured emotions, it's all an incredibly strong sensation. Makes me shiver and tear up. And it always catches me by surprise.

Memories are a trip.
