One thing leads to another

My, how time flies! I really didn't mean it to be this long since my last entry. But with getting quite sick Easter weekend and all through the next week, going to Oulu for a night (for a TKD competition), work during the week and TKD practice in the evenings, and other events during weekends, it's just come to the point that I haven't written much. I have thought about writing stuff, I just never made it here.

Today is Vappu eve, or May Day eve. Tomorrow, here in Finland is Vappu, the Finnish labour day and with huge drunken festivities, especially for students. Me, I think I'll stay safe and sound and dry at home, indoors.

Vappu is sort of the first day of the year to have a picnic. Potato salad, nakki (hot dogs), sima (fermented mead type stuff) and tippaleipä (deep fried bread-noodles, with powdered sugar on top are eaten among other things.

Some links for you, because I'm too lazy explain it all myself. (Especially when it's been done already before.)
