I have been wanting to do a this kind of a 'series' for awhile. I may ot bring the most amazing insights on books, but I want to spread the joy of new books I have read and liked. Especially Finnish writers.

This books is from a Finlandia winner Sofi Oksanen (The finlandia winner book was Purge and is also an international bestseller) named Baby Jane, published 2005.

This is truly a honest and even realistic story about a lesbian couple, depression, anxiety disorder and violence in lesbian relationships. It's not very nice story, but it hit me very close and took me within in the very first pages. It's very short book, only bit over 200 oages in finnish, but it still brought me great deal of emotions and made me think.

I highly recommend it!

My mother's side grandparents are still alive. We have always been close, even if they have always lived over 400 kms away. They live in an old farm, even if the arable land has been sold and the buildings where the livestock was has been changed to a storage and there are no animals.

Every house is painted red and it's amazing. Beautiful. I, as being the morbid creature I am, am afraid that what will happen when granny and grandpa both die. We have two cottages already, how would be handle the third? It's so dear place to me that thinking of selling it hurts. But that's in the future.

My grandpa will be 89 on october, and even if he has broken his hip, he walks around with a cane and lives alone. A family friend comes once a week to clean and he has neighbours who visit, take him shopping and just keep an eye on him in case of an emergency. But he still travels to the poststamp auctions and is quite active. =DD He specializes in the stamps from the area Finland lost during the Winter and Continuation War.

Grandma had a small stroke nearly four-five years ago. i remember that I was in my first and still only hiking trip alone when I heard she had to go to hospital. I wrote a diary during that trip and I remember writing: "If something happens to grandma, I'll be last to know."

Grandpa took care of her for two years after the stroke, but when she couldn't go to toilet without help it was the sign that he couldn't take care of her anymore. She lives in a nursing home now.

It hurts seeing her like this. She is one of the dearest people in the world to me and she doesn't always recognize me. I mean, she knows three Hannas and mixes us up. She had a sister Hanna, a mother-in-law called Hanna and me, her first granddaughter. But she remembers Katariina and Tuomas and that hurts.

She can't truly walk anymore. I remember her as a person who always had to be doing something, loved to bake, may not be the most talkative but who was there and understood everything and WAS there when we were talking in a group. I don't get that feeling from her anymore. Nowadays when I look at her when we are talking around her she has this slightly confused look on her face and it hurts so much. And I got really freaked yesterday when read a fic that had a grandmother in it, she wasn't even anything at all like grandma, but I realized that I am loosing those memories at how was he like before the stroke. It scared me.

I miss her so much.

Cats

I am a cat person. Ridiculous cat person. ^^ We have two cats that are British shorthairs. Igor is white with blue and orange (or brown, it varies a bit) eyes, and Armi, who is blue. I gor was named Igor because he just looked like Igor, and Armi came to our home about six months later. She is named after Armi Kuusela, a Finnish pageant who was Miss Universum 1952. A beautiful woman's name to a beautiful cat. ^^

They are both 10 years old and shed like crazy. Igor is really really lazy, even lazier now that he is getting old. He is also the world's best food bowl's guardian. Xb He is also scared of small children, I mean, he won't attack but if he sees small children he hides. Our brave little beast.

Armi is a bit wilder, but she only seems so because Igor is so lazy. XDD

Both of them aren't really lap cats (?) but if you are laying on a sofa they'll come close and let you know that you'll be graciously allowed to pet them. Right now.

We have had kittens by them once, but then Armi was cut. A pity, but it was always a hassle because Igor had to be put in my room during her heat.

Cat pictures here! )

Sorry about the big pics.

Bruce Springsteen is having a concert today in Helsinki. I had to stand ready at my computer, refreshing every ten seconds when you first got to buy those tickets. My mum is a fan. ^^ I was in the 2008 concert and thought it was okay, nothing spectacular but it didn't make my ears bleed. I was originally supposed to go with her and her Boss friends, but she asked if I could give my ticket to a man at her work because he was such a Bruce fan. I was glad to, because as I said I am not really a Bruce fan, and I was happy to give it to someone who really appreciates it.

I am kinda amused at her enthusiasm, and how her friends (old family friends who I have friended in Facebook) all talk about the concert in facebook. ^^

BTW, I have noticed that is confusing as fuck to notice that your own mother uses more teen-speak in her texts, when you write full sentences and correct grammar. And she still isn't in facebook, though. Xb

I like watching movies that have a lot of dancing and music. Was it musical or breakdance, doesn't matter.

I have watched all Step Up movies and been honestly disappointed. When there has been good enough acting, there isn't enough dancing or when there is dancing the acting is terrible. Moose is endearing, though. And none of the soundtracks truly hit me in a good way.

Of those type of movies my absolute favourite is StreetDance movie. It was made in Britain, and happens in London. It has good actors, music is amazing and dancing is...wow. I have watched it over four times and it still takes me away, when I honestly can't watch Step Up movies again. I am hoping that the fourth one is good, but what I've seen the dancing will be great but the plot? ...Yeah.

Any of you seen the StreetDance?

Ship wars

My parents have told me since I was a kid that: Everyone's tastes are different. I can't stand liquorices nor grapefruits, but I love rye bread brand called Real and ridiculous tv-shows like Say Yes to the Dress. Shut up. XDD

It's just...I don't know how to say it. I have my favourite parings and some I honestly can't stand or see any logic in them. I started as a Zutarian, and have learnt to like Maiko. I can't stand Kataang and incest makes my run from the fic faster than light. So I don't read them. That's it. I won't waste my energy telling people who are fan of those things how terrible/illogical/disgusting those parings are, like those people who just can't seem to shut up about it.

I really, really like Makorra. I don't see the joy of the parings like Bokorra, Tahnorra or Tarrlorra. Or whatever you call those ships.

I really don't like confrontations, and sometimes I feel like I am missing something in the text, especially if it's written in the internet so I rather stay quiet and wait for the clarification.

I stay the heel away from character bashing and shipbashing, and have been quite good at it especially in AtLA fandom. But in Glee I have had to face the utter crazyness of the fans, their bashings and lunacy and honestly? It was that and the uneven writing in the show that have pretty much alienated me from it.

I don't want confrontation. If I don't like the ship in the fic, I won't read it. As simple as that. I won't make you read a fic that has a paring you don't like, and I expect the same courtesy from you. And I sure as hell not won't make you feel bad for liking it.

Finncon!

I arrived from Finncon around midnight last night. I had an absolute blast! I got this hideous mask that covers the lower part of my face, and it's cool. It's a lower part of the skull. I bought books, sold them pretty nicely but now me and my dad must figure out how much money each of us will get because he gave me some books to sell and now neither of us can tell how much of the money belongs to other...

I am still feeling a bit afsgdighsggwha? but much more human now. I love Finncon!

Here is me with the mask:

The goggles aren't mine, but there was this guy who was making a series of photos were people were wearing those goggles and I got to be there. I think it's pretty good...

Tomorrow starts Finncon, which is a fantasy and scifi convention where I have been for several years, and last four years I have worked as a gopher there. I'll be in the book flea market stand selling books, which I requested and love doing. I am also selling seven plastic bags full of books and DVDs, but two of those bags are what my dad wants to sell and five left are mine. I am hoping to get some money...

I can hardly wait! I am so excited...

I know I have been quiet for awhile, but things have been happening. I don't think I have told you, but at the spring 2010 when I graduated from high school, I went to a two-year study (?) in another school, where I would graduate to become a librarian. I stumbled badly at the first year, left almost half of the courses unfinished and had to basically repeat the first year.

Second year was no better, and in the end (this spring) I came to that conclusion that it would be best for me to take the next year off from studying, find a job or something, finish the therapy and get better.

Right now I am feeling pretty down. I didn't get a summer job, and my eating is fucked. The clerk in the employment office called me a marginalized young (it sounded worse in Finnish, I think...) and I am not sure if my status is still a student, if it is, I can't get certain services I wat and need and have to basically spend the year doing nothing which is absolutely the last thing I want.

And I can't go to NYCC because I didn't get a summer job.
