Happy new year!

A new year is soon here, with new possibilities and adventures ahead. I always have a calendar book, where I write down everything I'm gonna do so I remember them. I love the beginning of the year, when the pages of the book are completely white and you have no idea what's gonna come your way. And I'm never expecting bad things, eventhough you never know, good or bad, all the same. I always feel that that book is gonna be filled with great experiences.

So for this new year I'm gonna paint EVEN MORE, let the TV be off more often, read more, put on something that will make me feel as if I've made an effort to look good every day, start a new hobby, and a secret new year's resolution that I will keep to myself for now.

Happy new year!

Where to go next?

Simo and I have been talking about travelling again, probably in march. When you live in the north it's always important to have something like that to look forward to, since the winters here are so dark and long. At that time of year you've had plenty of time to prepare for your winter depression. When we were in Thailand last year it was so wonderful to leave Finland and the cold and wet, only to come back to the spring and sunshine.

But where to go? We have been thinking about The Bahamas, Haiti, Phillipines, Bali, Seychelles, St. Martin and Thailand again.
If you have been to any of these places, please share your opinions.

Back to the gym, back to reality!

This christmas has been different. My first year in Finland for this holiday, and eventhough I missed my friends that I see so rarely, I had a very nice and relaxing couple of days. Another thing: usually I have about 2 weeks off in christmas, now I had 3 days and that's including the weekend. So I guess 1.
So I went to work today, and I had the earliest shift. After a really bad night sleep, I got up at 5:00 in the morning to go to work. I notice that I'm sick of the candy and bullshit that I've stuffed my face with during the last week or so, and I can't wait to get back to the gym again tomorrow, before the big new-years resolution-craze starts next week.

It's not Christmas before...

Presents, presents and more presents!

Eventhough we were only 2 (OK, 3) here for christmas this year, it wasn't exactly lacking presents under the tree! We opened them pretty late since the food was delayed. But we had a really nice christmas, and ver very relaxing.

Besides from the sewing machine and surround sound system, here are some of my favourite presents this year:

Inside socks/shoes that has soles made of pillows filled with rice that you can take out and put in the microwave to heat up. You put them back in, and it's sooo nice. Something tells me I'm gonna wear those a lot this winter, since they say this is gonna be the coldest winter in many years.


The coolest belt I own!

My new favourite perfume.

More baking coming up!

Merry Christmas!

A day too late, I wish you all a merry christmas! Actually, come to think of it, most countries open their present today the 25th, but in Scandinavia (and Finland) we open them on the evening of 24th.
Simo made Finnish food yesterday and I also had ptarmigan that Dad had given to me. That's been my christmas food for many years.
The Finnish christmas food is basically different types of herring in mustard or tomato for example, ham and different casseroles. In Norway it's meat, meat and more meat. And potatoes.
I have to certain things on christmas eve, call it traditions if you want. First up is eating riceporrige with butter, cinnamon and sugar.

The porrige has to have a hidden almond in it as well, and the one who gets it gets a prize. While I eat my porrige I have to watch a Czech film called "3 nuts for Cinderella" that goes every year on TV in the morning in Norway.
My granparents had send this film to me on DVD along with another that I watched when I was little; a calendar. Of course Macaulay Culkin and Home Alone 1 and 2 is also part of getting the christmas spirit.

Simo has to see "The Snowman" every year.

And here are some of the other things to get me into the christmas spirit:

Disney's "From all of us, to all of you" christmas special!

Home made cookies and candy!

Home made Norwegian Sandcakes!

Norwegian traditions: christmas marzipan and milkchokolate!

And last but not least; COCA-COLA!!!

The time is near...

On the 23rd of december I stressed like crazy. But why? It was just gonna be Simo, Milla and I this year, and I stood in the kitchen like a maniac baking my life away.
It didn't help that the last shopping wasn't done, and as soon as Simo came home from work we went to the store and got the last of the food. Actually, that relaxed me a bit. I figured it was the cold (-20 these days) that freezed my brain and therefore also my stresspoint, and when we got back and it started to melt again, it was too late. I decorated the tree while we watched Home Alone 2 and we cleaned the rest of the place a littlebit.

It's funny how you see the difference in the people in a "big" city and a town around christmas. In Norway where I live most people say merry christmas to eachother eventhough they don't know eachother, and here people just look at eachother like "That ham is MINE!"

While all the things get done around the house, some creatures live DA LIFE!

Homemade anyone?

This is one of those things I never actually though I would buy ever. Or get.
A sewing machine.
I actually got it from my granmother as sort of an "early christmas present" when she was here. I have been thinking about getting a sewing machine for a while so I can work on my costumes without being too dependent on my friends for help. In the beginning I looked like a questionmark though, when I tried to understand how and where the thread (and UNDERTHREAD) was supposed to go in the machine, and horror images from highschool in sewing class started to appear and I just had to go to sleep. But now I think I actually understood it.
Well. I guess if something goes wrong you'll see me wearing my clothes in the future. I mean really. WEARING.

Go Kendra, go Kendra!

It doesn't take much to be in a reality show in Hollywood. All you got to do is to be skinny (or if you're fat, the show has to be about that terrible fate) and shake the little you've got. Though it would be best if you had a lot. On a small body. On sale. This is what you need if you're not trying to win a price or learn a craft in the end of the reality show, but simply want a camera to follow your extreemly exiting life, that is 100% REAL of course...

When I turned the TV on today after a day at work, this is what came on. A reality show about Kendra whats-her-name, who used to be with Hugh Hefner (and two other girls) and in their foursome realityshow. I guess she got a taste for the reality life, but honestly, just the one of the crazy groups just isn't that interesting. I think the best part of the show was the opening theme which was completely ridiculous!
No wait. Actually the best part was when he dog fell into her pool and started to swim calmly toward the edge and she freaked out completely and threw herself into the pool to save him while she screamed. She got up and her friend asked if the dog didn't know how to swim. -"No", Kendra said, terrified. She hasn't researched enough to know that ALL dogs know how to swim, by nature.
Now she's on her own, "independent" and ready to take on the reality world! All you need to do is to shake your boobs, kiss random people of the same sex, create drama with your boyfriend and scream when you talk. That'll show them who's independent!
(A crazy laugh doesn't hurt either...)

Save the world - pay up!

"Do you really know what goes in to your food?"
That's the beginning of a information site on the net about organic food. The site is very neat and all, but how do I know that the cynical "I can't believe you're eating NORMAL food"- undertone gives me the right information?

Simo and I went to a organic food store today. Not because we buy organic food or are...lets say experimenting, but simply because they have some products there that he likes that you can't really get in many other places. He got what he wanted and we took a stroll around the store. A pattern that I saw was that everybody looked very worried and occupied with reading the ingredients of whatever they were buying, as if they didn't believe blindly that everything there was completely the way they wanted. The stresslevel in their eyes seemed to come naturally by the intense need of control and I felt like going to Mc.Donalds.
I'm not a healthfreak by any means, but I've always tried to take as good care of my body and mind that I can without making it a source of pain.
I was a "vegetarian" (a fake one, mind you) because of my love for animals for 10 years before my doctor TOLD me to start eating meat again. I did.
I don't see the point of POSSIBLY saving the amount of years that you're probably using worrying about what you're eating anyway (or die by stress?), and as long as I treat my body with some sort of sense.

But anyway, so we were walking around looking at all these homemade products and healthy looking things. I saw a massage stick that tried before that are made of wood. I've been wanting to buy it for a while. That kinda changed when I leaned that it cost 45 Euros (60 Dollars). Two peices of wood. Screwed together. They better drop the prices if they want to save the planet and avoid people cutting down trees to make their own massage sticks!

Michael Jackson The Experience release party!

Yesterday I had a party for the release of the new game called Michael Jackson The Experience. It can be bought on Wii already, but I know that it won't be out for many consoles before next year. We were about 10 people at my place yesterday, eating taco's and TRYING to eat all the stuff I made (there's a LOT left...something tells me I should bring it work or something) and trying out this game. It was so much fun to play it with hardcore MJ fans who already knew many of the moves! But the game surprises even us though, and many times the dance is different from the music video or performance in this game, and that's allright.

Some of the classic movements could have been used a bit more, like for example the "flying" part in Beat It only comes in the end of the dance in this game. Surprisingly, some of the more difficult dances are actually the ones you would think are easier, like Working Day and Night for example. Ghosts is ungodly. Most of the time you can chose the difficulty level in a dance by chosing if you want to be Michael or a backup dancer, and you can play up to 4 players. There's 26 hits to dance to and it's a fantastic work out that will get your sweat going!

You can't really see the screen very well. Sorry about that.

Christmas baking, ready to go!

All these goodies are made by MOI! Yes you heard me; all alone. Tonight I'm having a Michael Jackson; The Experience party, and I hope people are hungry! At least for goodies!

Stockholm Science Fiction Convention 2010, DAY 2.

The next day we didn't have to get up so early, since all our stuff was already at the Center. We had a good breakfast before heading to the train again and we made it in good time. I bought the Han Solo t-shirt that I had been drooling on the day before, and decided to get some autographs before the biggest waves of people would arrive. In the beginning I was just gonna get one for Simo, by Edward Furlong who was in Terminator 2 and American History X, but I also decided to get one of Robert Englund who was THE Freddy Kruger from Nightmare on Elm Street and Joe Flanigan from Stargate Atlantis for myself.

After getting Robert Englund's, another trooper and I decided to ask him if he wanted to come and take a photo with all the troopers for free. He was very easy to talk to and didn't even doubt for a second if he was gonna do it or not. He just said -"Sure. Right now?" He came to our stand and waited patiently while all the troopers gathered and got ready for the photo. He was so talkative and kept going on about what films he liked and didn't like. When the photo was about to be taken he told me that he wanted to hold my backpack that is a little Chewbacca.

We did a sort of parade around the huge place to show off what we did and get people to the stand. Getting ready to start, Darth Vader came out from the changingroom with half of a Ewok hanging under his face as a beard. Merry christmas. More troopers came out with various christmas decorations in various places of their bodies/armours.

After the parade another nice actor came to join us for a photo. Joe Flanigan from Stargate Atlantis. I was thrilled, because I love that series! He came to stand next to me and sort of looked at me for a moment. Then he said: - "Wow, you REALLY look like her!" Then he turned to the people standing nearby and went: "Doesn't she?"
- "Thank you. That's quite a compliment", I answered.
- "Yes, that IS quite a complement, isn't it", he said, "Natalie Portman is beautiful!"
That pretty much kept me smiling for the rest of the day.

Later when I got the autograph though, he had written that I was the best "Princess Leah" he'd ever seen. Hrmph! Even the fellow Sci-Fi geeks AND actors don't know that I'm AMIDALA! Time for a new costume WITHOUT the hairbuns maybe...? Hehe.

All in all I had a GREAT time with old and new friends, and can't wait for the next troop together!

Stockholm Science Fiction Convention 2010, DAY 1.

Last weekend I went to Stockholm, Sweden as I mentioned in my last post about being sick, and you're probably wondering what I was doing there.
I was at the 2010 Stockholm Science Fiction Convention. It was SO much fun!

We we're 501st and Rebel Legion members from all over the nordic countries: Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway there, to collect money for Children Cancer Foundation in Sweden by having our own stand at the convention where people could be photographed with us.

We came to Stockholm on friday and spent some time in the center before heading back to stay at a fellow troopers place. On saturday we got up REALLY early to go to the convention with all our stuff. It looked like we were taking over the whole railway platform as we came rolling with boxes, suitcases and bags in our hands and under our eyes.
As soon as we arrived at the Center I wanted my costume on so that I could have it over and done with and start walking around.

I got some time to walk around before it became too busy and too many people showed up, and already decided for some items that I would buy later.
Before I knew it I was dragged along the crowd with some other troopers to what apparently became a TV interview for the main TV channel in Sweden.
You can see the interview here (eventhough it's in Swedish...):

I started to feel a bit ill though...and I realzed that I had to really fight to keep focused. I felt like the whole floor was constantly rocking from the boat and the dizzyness didn't end. So when many others of the gang went out to eat I had to pass and went back to the house with the Finnish gang. I had to make sure that I could troop the next day as well. I decided it was a good idea to buy about 7 bags of chips and feel sorry for myself in the company of good friends.

Remember, remember, the 1st of december.

It's soon christmas again. And I'm sick. I just got home from Sweden yesterday and went straight to work feeling very ill. I started getting sick on friday, the day after we arrived to Sweden, and I have been trying to just keep going strong since then. On monday I started feeling REALLY bad though, and I already then knew that it was gonna be terrible to go to work on tuesday when I got back to Helsinki.
Today I had to stay home though, and try to get well, and I will also tomorrow.
The calendar is waiting for me with chocolate in it. Simo's also got one and so does Milla. (Dog-chocolate.)
I have a norwegian TV series ready as well, so that can have so stabile Christmas routine to get me in the spirit. Some lights are already up, and more will be done this weekend.

Michael Jackson's "new" album.

When I heard about this album coming out a while ago now, I already in my mind prepared myself for not buying it. The reason why is that I felt it always took so long for Michael to give out anything, partly because he was a perfectionist. As soon as he dies an album comes out the next year. Does. Not. Compute.
I know a lot of fans are happy about this, and don't get me wrong - it will be cool to hear some "new" stuff! But what gets to me is that I feel there's a reason why these songs have been unreleased all these years, and I think it's a bit fishy that everything is tumbling really fast forward suddenly.
I don't feel that's it's truly a Michael Jackson album that he has put his soul in. Of course, I haven't heard it yet and my view might change.

I haven't been writing about the upcoming album here yet, because I wanted to get it a bit on a distance to get more of a fresh view on it.
There's been a lot of debate about this album and a certain song called "Breaking News" in it, especially from Michael fans. I've seen that many of them have been something like this:

-"It's not him! You should be able to hear the difference between Michael Jackson and an impersonator! You're not really a fan!"

-"It's him! Don't be so negative! It's sounds exactly like him, how can't you tell? You're not really a fan!"


My view on it is this: I agree that it doesn't sound like him. However, I know that if he would have wanted to, it wouldn't have been the least difficult for him to manipulate his voice in the studio.
What DID put me off though, wasn't his voice, but the lyrics of the song. What his singing doesn't sound like something he would write and the pronunciation of certain words sounds wrong.

Here is the song. You see what you think. Feel free to comment.

Harry Potter And the Deathly Hallows! (SPOILERS!)

First of all, I'd like to say to all people who haven't read the book and will see the film, NOT to read this post.

I have read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as soon as it came out, but it was so detailed that I must admit that I don't remember too much of it. In a way it was good, because when I saw the film in wednesday with a friend, I saw it with almost fresh eyes.
I didn't know what to expect with it, but I wasn't THAT impressed with the latest films. All the bad reviews didn't effect me much though, as I don't read or trust them at all.

I wasn't dissapointed. In the beginning I thought it was very slow and was wondering when the action was gonna start, but as the film went on, I enjoyed the psycological effect the slow pace feeling made. The waiting and waiting that Harry and his friends were feeling, before the big fight was really well done, and I loved it! One of the best Harry Potter films in a long time.
The tension between Ron and Hermione was much more real than before, when it's only been sort of snapping at eachother. Of course hardcore fans like myself know's that they're in love with eachother, and I loved the scene where the Horcrux that they need to destroy makes Ron see Harry and Hermoine naked together and kissing. Powerful and real.

The only real problem I have with the newest Harry Potter films is actually Voldemort. I think it was a big mistake to show him in such detail like the directors have chosen to do after "Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire".
When I read the books, Voldemort always terrified me. I imagined a terrible creature that coulnd't even fully mold in my mind. However, when I saw the way he's shown in the films, it all changed. He has a sweet voice and eyebrows that makes him look vulnurable and almost apologetic for his own existence. That's not Voldemort.
I think he should have been hidden more, always in the shadows so that you bever see him completely and fully. You would always wonder what he really looks like and he would be more of a threat. The more you show, the less you need to wonder and less is left up to your imagination.
I think Hollywood is struggling with this. The power of the mind is forgotten.

Partying with Lisa Simpson!

Yesterday was probably the weirdest monday I've had in a long time.
After a busy weekend, which didn't really feel like a weekend at all, the new week started with a party.
FS Film had it's 10 years birthday party, and of course Simo and I "had to" go. I didn't mind actually, but I had forgotten that it was so late in the evening. I went home after work and put on my new dress and fixed my hair. I was ready to go and called Simo to decide where to meet in the center.
"It's not before two hours", he said. "Have you forgotten when it was?"
Indeed I had.
So after surfing on the net for what seemed like an eternity, I went to the center and met Simo. The party was great; free drinks and free food. And not just food; SUSHI! Yay! I met some of Simo's colleagues that I hadn't met before and had a really good time. And the fact that the Simpsons family and the Chipmunks were hanging around in the place didn't make it less eventful either.

Party on!

Reality crossovers.

I like to have the TV on just when I do stuff around the house, or even when I surf on the net. I would say that most of the shows that are on TV now are reality shows. I don't usually like them very much, but I can see how people can get really addicted to them. I prefer the ones that are on Discovery or Animal Planet, but I must admit that interior reality shows tickles me as well.
One pattern I have seen in shows with a lot of men in them is that they have to have their arms folded for some reason. Especially the cooking shows. Why is that?

I wonder; is it a fear of exposing yourself? Of showing sensitivity? YOU'RE ON A REALITY SHOW!
Is it to show how strong you are, no fear? WE'RE WAITING FOR YOUR FALL!
You pretty much can't expose yourself more to the world than be in a reality show, especially since the editing will make sure that you will be respresented in the most dramatic way possible. It's no time to be hard to get or secretive. You're not.

It's interesting how the women-judges in these shows have to be tempting, as if THEY are the food to be eaten, and the men are the stove that you might get burned on.
"Don't even THINK about messing with me! We make food in this place!"

Every girl's nightmare.

About a week ago I was just wandering in the center without a goal or meaning, minding my own business. Suddenly I got the brilliant idea that I needed a new dress for christmas, since we're spending it in Finland this year, and I can already feel how desperate I am for catching that christmas spirit.
So eventhough I don't usually like their style, I drifted in to Mango to have a casual look. In the very back on the store I saw something sparkeling, and God knows that that's pretty much what's need to catch my eye, so I went over.
It was a beautiful (and expensive) strapless golden dress with patterns that looked elegant and well done. I decided to try it. In my size I might add. Yes, no ego-size. My REAL size.
So it was a real horror to discover that the zipper of the dress was completely stuck once it was on me! Not only that, but I had put it on back to front (without a bra on) and was now completely helpless where I stood. I tried everything, but the point of the dress was to be tight and there was no way I could get it off in any way.
Only one solution: call a person who works there. Great.
So after explaining my situation (and putting on my bra), I stood there, looking ridiculous with half a dress on. She asked me if there was anything I could do to get it off, but alas, no.
She told me to wait (as if I could go anywhere in a costume that looked like a MTV music video-hoe outfit) and came back with something in her hand. Scissors. Crap.

I don't know if you can see it in this bad picture, but the dress of 89 Euros was completely demolished with the zipper hanging down from the beautiful fabric.
Every girl's nightmare.

A visit from dad.

I have been spending some quality time with my dad this last weekend. He came here on friday since we probably won't go to Norway for christmas this year. The plan was to go shopping all weekend for some christmas gifts. The day before he came I learned that it's a holiday in Finland on All Saints Day (I think it is?) and therefore, pretty much everything was closed...bummer.
We still decided to go to the center though and have dinner and rent some films.
We ate at a chinese restaurant that was pretty small and completely PACKED! We kinda sat on top of people while eating and it always felt like the people coming in the door looking for a place to sit always singled you out as the perfect spot. The food was nothing very special, but completely edible.

We went to the renting place that I like to shop my candies, and rented "The Book of Eli" with Denzel Washington and "Shutter Island" (eventhough I've seen it twice already). The Book Of Eli was one of the best films I've seen in a long time. Very little explained, you just believe in whatever you're being told by the big black box right away.

After he tried a surround sound system room in Norway, dad has been possessed by the thought that Simo and I desperately need this. And yes, that might very well be true. Especially now that we got one, I can see it even more how we needed it.
So ironically, on sunday when everything was open again, we went to hunt for the perfect system. We found it at last (literally) and got it hooked up to the TV now. The sound is awsome! And best of all; it's got a iPhone/iPod connection as well, which I have been wanting for a long time.

Steppin' out with my baby!

I have a cold. And I know why.
I was swettin' and walking around an overcrowded maze with crazy-eyed winetasting adults on saturday to an extent that I felt dizzy eventhough Simo did the winetasting.
The fair that we so bravely went to was called "Food, wine and the good life" and "the good life" was music and books. I heard about if from a friend at work and I was especially exhited about the books and food (especially since I had been to the gym the same day and held my empty stomach for later).
So we started off with some - "Where's the food?"
There wasn't much food, mostly it was very small tasting samples around here and there, so by the time we got to an oyster stand our greediness and hunger was living it's own life.
The oysters actually looked like something you want to eat where they layed...resting in their coffin that had once been their home. F*ck it. Oysters it is.
I've only had oysters once before, in Nice, and somehow that kind of food always gives you such a rush when you eat it that somehow it blocks out the memory of what it actually tasted like. However I do remember that I liked it.
And right I was, because after having one each I couldn't stop thinking about them. The oysters were dancing in my mind.

Simo went to buy some "wine-tickets" so that he would be able to do some tasting, and I sort of tagged along, looking at all the least I had my say in what a wine bootle should LOOK like and I think the direction of which wine to taste was affected by it.
So we were walking around, trying to figure out what's next to eat and ended up with a snailrisotto. I like snails, but this was kinda tasteless and boring. So we went straight back to the oysters and had another handful of them. The guys started to recognize us after a few times back and forth between the wine and the oysters.

But at least we ended up with something we could bring home:

But now I am sick. I have a cold from the wine frenzy.

Happy Halloween!

It's halloween guys, and I have done nothing to celebrate. Expect for being a Jedi at work on friday, halloween has been slow this year.
No kids on trick or treat and no zombies to hang out with this weekend. Slow.

I went to the center with a friend and saw the new Woody Allen film "You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger" though. The film was pretty boring to be honest, it wasn't anything but a typical Woddy Allen film, without the neurotic guy.

One thing that HAS been scary though, was to read (and finish) "The Lord Of The Flies" by William Golding. THAT was a real halloween experience. It's one of those books that almost everyone has read, but no one remembers, because when they DID read it it was forced upon them in school. Therefore they half-read it and remembers it with a certain dread.
I enjoyed the book, eventhough the feeling of it kept me in a terrified state. It was so real that you completely forgot that the story was about CHILDREN and the hope and light in the tunnel was just not very positive.
If you haven't read it, you should.

Thrill The World Helsinki 2010.

As I have hinted before, saturday was a pretty crazy day, with work, almost choaking on dinner and zombies! If you have been wondering what all the zombies have been upto it was "Thrill The World" again, a once a year dance event all over the world. It is organized in 30 countries, and has people dancing to Michael Jackson's Thriller at the exact same time. Unfortunately, the time zones make Finland dance at 02.00 in the morning...
So after eating out with Simo we went home and I changed before going back to the center to meet the dead gang. We met at 22.00 outside the railway station, and I was already WAAAY overtired.
Getting eyeballed at every corner we passed and having Mc.Donalds with a bunch of zombies didn't exactly put a stop to my laughingfit, and I must say that I sure had a great time.

I didn't dance this year (again), I'm real chicken that way. Come to think of it, I don't think anyone would have noticed my bad dancing: a couple who obviousely just decided the same day that they wanted to be a part of this danced so badly that they destroyed the whole performance. The man was worst - whenever the dancers were down, he was up and vice versa. It was so embarrassing that I was really happy to film for a friend and be spared the worst of it.
However, through my view of the camera, I DID notice a drunk idiot coming into the dance towards the end, but what I DIDN'T notice was that he was wearing sort of a penis costume or something like that (only saw it on the video afterwards). Elengant.
When Vincent Price finished off with his laughter, the guy felt that he also had to "finish off" and did a grand jerking off simulating finale.
I'm so happy that the families and children that wanted to see the dance were there at the rehearsal at 10.00 and not then.
Disrespectful. All of the dances around the world was recorded and was to be put on youtube. Unfortunately Finland cannot be shown.

But all the same, a great time it was!

A bit disoriented...

It's sunday. Right?
The weekend has gone by like lighting (again), but not because of doing nothing this time, but rather too much.
Yesterday I spent my saturday morning at a work seminar. I treasure my weekends, so I told Simo that we had to do something after the seminar so that I would feel as if I've had a real one. I met him in the center after a short trip to the gym and we went out to eat at a Mexican restaurant here in Helsinki called Santa Fe. I have just discovered a REALLY good beef steak they have, "Pedro's Blackened Steak", a cajun style and REALLY hot steak. So hot infact, that when I was almost finished eating and got a peice in the, tube, I thought I was gonna explode!
The weirdest thing was that my EARS were hurting like hell and I was trying very hard not to make a scene.
Atleast I survived, which isn't as much as I can say for the zombies I met later that night...

Wanted: DEAD.

It's not everyday you get to go to a bar on a saturday night and have a cup of warm chocolate with a zombie. Fortunately, I have friends in low places and therefore I get to enjoy my saturdays in a way that many can not. Going out with zombies, dancing at 02.00 in the center with zombies, late night conversations (laughingfits) with zombies, and actually LIVING to tell the tale the day after - well, that's just a normal night for a person like me.
