Three minutes to twelve

I turned in my database project yesterday. Three minutes before the deadline. But it’s done. Another item crossed off my list. I’m on a roll.

And I’m not going to Mexico. Elexa called me on Sunday and asked if I’d come with her and Elice and two other friends. “Flight leaves Thursday from Stockholm. We return two weeks later, on the 30th.” Yesterday I spend all day arranging my sudden, Christmas-busting trip. Then Elexa goes to buy the tickets only to find that the offer has ended. What I way to make the holidays seem worthless. Oh well, easy come, easy go.

Better lactate than never

My mom told us when we were little that it was possible for men to lactate. My brother and sister and I, we believed her. Later on, I told my biology teacher about it. He didn’t believe me. So I asked my mom where she’d read about it, so I could show the book to my teacher. She didn’t remember, but she said she’d find it someday.

Later, my sister told her teacher about it. He didn’t believe her, either. My mom still hadn’t found where she’d read about it. She said she’d find it someday.

Ten years later, my mom sends me this link. Thanks, Mom.

Kolme senttiä vähemmän

Tänään DNAlta tuli tekstiviesti, jossa ilmoitettiin, että Onni-liittymän kuukausimaksu laskee 0,66 euroon. Jippii! Kokonaiset kolme senttiä vähemmän!

Mitä järkeä tässä on? Johtuuko muutos siitä, että Elisan vastaavassa tasahintaliittymässä kuukausimaksu on 0,68 euroa? Meinaako DNA seurata perässä kun joku muu operaattori laskee hintansa 0,65 euroon?
