So after all the trouble with your parents and all, now you also consider an internet search engine a personal friend? Well, this goes deeper than I thought...

No it's not. It's certainly not going on anymore. Don't you see? It's not there. Here.

Whatever.

I'm still wondering why these pictures are always from a Finnish site. The address is clearly in Finnish (it's actually a bit of a wordplay, a pun, if you will).

Also, yesterday - and may I remind you it's June (not to mention a couple weeks ago it was almost 30 degrees celsius) - it hailed (can you say that? "Hailed"?). You know, rained those bits of ice. And they weren't small either. It's frigging June!

Trade you. It's been over 35C here for 2 months and a couple of days at 40C

But hail in the middle of summer!!! Then again, this is Finland, so I guess I'm overreacting...

Also, Play.com is a great site if you want to think that you're getting something for a nice price, but actually something goes wrong. Right now they've introduced a new way to secure your payment. This security check works so that after you've identified yourself with all kinds of info, the box freezes and you can't actually finish the verification. No payment, no security issues!

And they still don't allow PayPal...

Doesn't hail normally fall in any season except winter? The last time there was hail in this part of Ontario was back in April.

All hail PayPal! Or not, especially if someone at PP screws up and locks you out of your account for no good reason.

Firstly, let me reassure everyone that this is NOT part of some huge twisted conspiracy, I never said that it was and I do not know where these ugly rumours started.

Secondly, what is the pun? (As a typical Englishman, I basically only have a very small amount of French and German at my command*, except for English of course, and no Finnish at all.)

* I mean the languages. I wish to make clear that I DO NOT have a pan european army of any size at my control.

Heh... (Of course, only one with said army would want to deny it)

Anyways, the word 'kuvat' means 'pictures' and when combined with 'on', it can mean either "has (the) pictures" or also "pictures on" (if you take the 'on' as the English word). However, combining them into one word - 'kuvaton' - means 'pictureless'.

I have a mouse

Which makes a change from booklice and silverfish, but this is getting a bit irritating.

DIE, MOUSE!

I would suggest a good old fashioned spring loaded mouse trap. They are messy but the satisfaction as you hear the SNAP!! is fantastic
