Happy New Year, folks!

I'm here because I just signed up for GYWO and I just realized the difference between Tumblr and this site, seeing as here I actully got something written, unlike on tumblr. Oh well, trying to do bettern in the 2016.

Are you still here, fellow Jooster-fans who didn't follow me to the procrastination paradise? Drop a note if you like, let's catch up.

Writer's Block: Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

What comes to classics, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and that song in the title are songs I love at Christmas. Also It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas and Silver Bells are amongst the top ten. The thing is, I cannot listen to them until it's no more than 3 weeks or less till Christmas, they are something I wish to save from over-listening.

What is my favourite not-so-traditional Christmas song, is Stowaway from Doctor Who. I love it and I just found it this year. Finnish Christmas songs in that category are Jossain on kai vielä joulu and Oikein surullista joulua by Leevi and the Leavings. Especially the latter one is funny as they wish dull, dark, cold, dreadful and very sad Christmas
What is your favorite holiday carol or song?
in a way that I want to write it on the Christmas cards I'll send.

I got myself Spotify

And now I'm in love. Completely. 

Guys. There's so much Tom Lehrer. If I had known this earlier, I would have gotten it sooner. Oh, and my MP3 player apparently works. It was just being picky and refused to charge the battery on school computer... o.O

I have a test tomorrow. Haven't read a thing.

I can't live, if livin' is without music

My MP3 player is apparently dead. Reseting doesn't work, nothing I can think of does. Somehow it feels like a tiny part of me has died, or is at least sick and drinking hot chocolate under blankets at home. Meaning, I feel a bit lost and naked now at school. Not cool.

The question is, can I live till yule to ask a new one as a present or will it be impossible to wait that long (a month and 10 days!) without one?

#FirstWorldProblems, I know.
meddle not w/ slashers

You know you have studied too much home economics...

...when you are reading a cute fic with your favourite pairing dancing and when you reach the part: 'The hand at his own waist felt large and warm, even through the silk of his suit' all you can think of is boy, you are going to have some troubles to get that hand-shaped sweat-stain out of that suit, silk, what were you thinking? C'mon, SERIOUSLY, brain, now is not the time to think what teacher said about silk and stains! Especially since he can obviously use dry-cleaners or let's say the suit is that latest nano-technology, stain-resistant and all that. Can I go and stop bothering about real life stuffs for a moment, now?

I should sleep in classes, I should sleep in classes, I should sleep in classes, I should sleep in classes...

Soundtrack of my life - meme

Found this meme on FF.net from Kiss Mae and it sounded like fun.
How it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool.

SNES

I'm a tiny bit disappoinment -if we underestimate the feelings- about the state of our Super Nintendo. After about a month and a half waiting for a new RF switch cable being shipped here from the U.S. of A. I'm still not able to play all the awesome games we have -mainly Donkey Kong. There's still some problems, this time either with another cable, the controller (though it should work, it's new. But not an official one so maybe that's the reason) or the whole thing is so old we should just give up and have a funeral. Still I'm going to try again tomorrow to make sure it's not the controller, but I'm fearing the worst. Damn. It's not nice to give up on something that has been a part of childhood.
