Well let me just tell you that once those two tired of the lakes and the woods and the saunas, they became quite inhospitable. All they wanted to do was sit around all day and watch Madventures and the Dudesons. I insisted that that could not really be the name of a show, while they insisted that it was in fact Finland's most internationally recognized television program of all time. I assured them that it was most certainly not recognized by me, nor by anyone I had ever come into contact with. As you can imagine, this conversation ended rather poorly, and both parties agreed to go their separate ways.
Perhaps your butt was right to avoid the land of a thousand lakes after all.
Juha and Mikko would likely not appreciate your sneering condemnation of the Finnish people in any case. If your butt holds similar sentiments, then it's probably best that you keep it securely attached.
In other news, when I was leaving work today, a woman on the elevator told me that I look like "that one famous girl who's divorcing her husband." I think she was talking about Katie Holmes leaving Tom Cruise. Which is funny for many reasons. The first of which is that it isn't true. I think she just recognized that I am a Caucasian female with longish brown hair, and felt the need to express this in a unique way.
I was talking to a guy from Finland today at work (over the phone). I needed him to fill out this data sheet for me, and he told me that he probably couldn't get it to me until August, because virtually everyone there would be on vacation for the next month or so.
Is it like this for everyone in your part of the world? Lucky ducks.
