What I have been doing

Christmas holidays — sauna, too much food (half of it Christmas ham and Karelian pastries), relatives, utter laziness. Got a few volumes of Bleach, and volumes of Questionable Content and Amazing Super Powers (Brother #3 also got a volume of Oglaf for Brother #2, which is, uh… Christmas spirit?), two pairs of gloves, and the slowly dawning mutual realization that, uh, dad, when I told you you can e-mail that shop to order that coat I forgot that address is the bloody unintuitively hidden one, and not the feedback form. (Also, bad shop! They should still answer inquiries.)

New Year’s — shooting rockets, sauna, shooting some more rockets on a sauna break. (How? Like this. You tromp out, nude. Important caveat! This works only out in the countryside. You put on boots, a towel-loincloth, safety goggles, and no other clothes — then you go to the forest’s edge so you don’t disturb the neigh-bor’s horses or mom — you place an upended pail in the snow, and then light all the whizzlers and fire-coughers you have left. Interestingly, this wasn’t us boys but me and dad.)

Today — Dentist’s, with talk of probabilities (viz. car accidents and baseball), the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the man on the cover of the set of the Finnish radio version of it, dark matter and dark energy, thesis defense etiquette and the theses he has on his bookshelf, and other matters. My dentist is a man of many interests though for the middle part of our conversations I mostly go “Gnnngh? Gngngn.”

That’s what I have been doing; now it’s time to get back on the horse of blatherations and blog.

    The actual fact that all drip coffee makers brew coffee
    in the identical means, not all drip coffee
    brewers are made equal! alongside a lot of another models and designs to select from it is
    significant to help you do some scientific studies . Should you decide
    make a cooking pot of coffee at 10 am and also exclusive consume a mug or perhaps 2, all the rest of the pot will most likely
    remain sitting recently there wishing for you hours further, simply since warm (otherwise very because
    tasty) since it had been at 10.
