Wow. I just got seriously yelled at by the mother of one my little brother's friends. And that's fine, I can understand a worried mother who can't reach her son needing to let out some steam, but I am the ONLY ONE, who gets to yell at my little brother. I am an adult and can take the responsibility of not realizing the different curfews my brother's friend may have (though despite the fact that I calmly apologized for not making sure her kid had his cell fully charged, I don't actually concider that my responsibility), but she does not get to yell at a kid who is apologizing already despite none of this actually being his fault. >:( 

Why yes I am highly protective of what's mine.

In other news, it's starting to sink in that I'm going to study the two things I never thought I would: history and politics. And some languages but I still haven't figured out whether to continue French with Spanish or German or just take the latter two. Decisions, decisions.

I've started thinking about packing too, and let me tell you, it's impossible to make 50kg of clothes magically become the allotted 20kg. Oh btw that 50kg doesn't include shoes or coats and there should still be room in that 20kg for my essential electronics . Any miracle packing tips? Because I will gladly take them.

Is anyone watching Suits? I'm sort of incredibly charmed by this show. Donna is most awesome.

I need a rule: No random RL posts for me unless I take the time to do them as stickfigure drawings.

 I don't even watch hockey you guys so I really shouldn't have this huge grin on my face. 6-1!? :D 

Also inexplicable is that I've watched 10 episodes of Supernatural today. Last time was... 4 years ago? I jumped in at S4. Do I need to see S3? Damn you show, I need my free time for other things!

"Who with?"

Having a Doctor Who first series marathon in the Stockholm apartment with Cousin2 and the lil' bro. My cunning plan to get more friend into this is clearly working, as the two of them are glued to the tv and smiling gleefully (especially Cousin2, who is just about the last person I'd expect to get into something like this). We watched the first six episodes last night and tonight I've been driving them crazy going "Captain Jack! Oh you just wait, there are leather pants in the immediate future!"

Episode 10 just ended and I'm pretty sure Cousin2 ships Jack/Nine. She just doesn't know it yet. >:)

Is anyone on my f-list watching Rizzoli & Isles? Because I'm here drawing some challenge stuff and getting increasingly annoyed at episode 6. You don't usually hear me criticize much, but really now. I'm 13 minutes in and there are already two things that are making me frown. First, the episode is called "I kissed a girl" presumably because the murdered woman was married to a woman. Secondly, there's a male character who's OMG a nurse, recommends using biodegradable doggie poo bags (the one he's holding is also pink, but I'm not sure if it's his), wants to be a "stay-at-home daddy" and is fairly obviously being played for laughs.

Speaking off I Kissed A Girl, I have a song for you: Ihmisten edessä by Jenni Vartiainen (m4a file. sorry guys, I'll get an mp3 for next time).
I sort of think of it as the opposite of the first song. Yes, both songs are sung by beautiful straight women, both are fairly pop-y and got a lot of radio play, but the thing that makes them different is the way they present a similar subject matter*. Vartiainen and Teemu Brunila (the writer of the song) were even awarded by Seta**("Sexual equality", the main LGBT rights organisation in Finland) for the song, which was described as an "apposite evocation of the courage needed from LGBT people to e.g. publicly hold hands". Google will probably provide you with translated lyrics if you want them.

In other news, Torchwood art on Tuesday!


*I'm using the word "similar" loosely here. Song about kissing a random girl vs. song about a non-normative/lesbian relationship.
**Fun fact: Tarja Halonen, the president of Finland, was the chairwoman '80-'81.
