What's another year?

Originally uploaded by poulus.
- excellent modern Finnish literature in my bag (themes are the common ones in Finnish modern literature, mental illness, domestic violence and unhappy marriages)
- two new freelancer jobs (I have to admit, I am a consultant)
- a nephew and the status of a godfather (just realised that in Finnish I am only an uncle but in English a father)
- reconfirmed opinion that George Michael's hair was way too big in the 80s (they played WHAM DVDs at the New Year's Eve Party)
- update on Finnish pop (too many hours on my parents' couch watching The Voice)
- first experience with a digital television (or to be more specific, the device under the TV)
- decision to finally test Skype (my phone bills - especially due to foreign phone calls - is getting out of hand)
- new scarf (slightly tommyhilfigerish but home-made)
- reconfirmation that I have a 3-year-old friend in Porvoo who likes the same music as I do)
- new haircut (comments range from supergoodlooking and slightly military to Algerian 13-year-old)

Not too bad, is it. Let's get going.

I have decided that it is going to be a happy one. Working for that. If someone needs convincing in this respect, I would recommend listening to Baz Luhrmann´s Everybody´s Free.
