Just natuke aega tagasi sain empsilt suurepärase emaili:
FW: palun suhtuge lastesse mõistvalt...
*edasisaatmis informatsioon, blablabla*
Berliin on suurepärane, inimesed on lahked ja mul on siin tõesti tore, aga Isa, mul on natuke häbi oma kullaga kaetud Ferrari pärast, sest kõik mu õpetajad ja paljud kaasüliõpilased sõidavad rongiga.
Sinu poeg, Nassir
Mu armas poeg
Kakskümmend miljonit USA dollarit kanti just su pangaarvele.
Sa ei pea enam teisi kadestama. Osta endale ka rong.
Sinu armastav isa
Huvitav kas see tähendab nüüd, et kui ma tahan, saan ma endale ka kuldse Ferrari?
I didn't want to make a new post so I'll just edit this one to show you this epcily awesome GIF image:

Also, I should mention that these are not in the chronological order. Just the order they pop into my mind.
1. My favourite comic drawer, Humon, Who does that Scandinavia and the World comics (I'm pretty sure I mentioned those in some post.) finally made one with Estonia in it.
And yes I just /had/ to post the comic instead of just linking you to it. Get over it :D
Authors note underneath it says
"Oh how often I have been asked by Estonians, “Where is Estonia? We’re a Nordic country too!” Problem is, the other Nordics doesn’t think so. I asked around what the stereotypes for the Baltic countries were, and the overall answer was, “Very depressed people who wear grey and live in grey houses”"
Anyway it was nice finally seeing Estonia there.
2. I made a new blog. The reason for it and stuff is described there so to save room, I'm not going to go into that right now. Read for yourself.
3. I have THREE new flags on my flagcounter.
Welcome, Great Britain
Welcome, New Zealand
4. Before coming... /home/ Kaja, Ken and I went to a little cute village just to walk around, drink a cup of coffee and so on. I wish I could remember the name of the village but I can't.
It was a little village right at the edge of water, with piers and stuff. It would be quite awesome seeing all those boats and stuff there if I didn't live where I do but still.
There was a thunderstorm nearby so that explains the dark clouds.
And guess what we found there?
Tiny estonian flag, yay!
After watching the lightning and listening to the thunder, drinking some coffee (something I did /a lot/ over there) and getting almost soaked in the rain we drove back to the village Kaja lives in and went to the nearby SPA for a walk and lunch.
There was lots of stuff like this (not all of it was made of steel, thankfully) next to the trail. Apparently it's "art". I mean, seriously...
Climbing it was exhausting in that wet heat but the view... Amazing.
The food was great, too.
More pictures about that particular day and lots of others here. There are also pictures of when Kaida and Kaja were home and stuff like that.
5. Kaja and I finished a puzzle.
1000 pieces, took us bit less than a week and upper half was a painnn.
But the picture is great and all that. Was a great pasttime for when we were bored in the afternoon or when Kaja was at work and I had to amuse myself.
6. The maritime daysssss.
Yesss. was awesome. I mean the concerts aren't really that good, it's hot and stuff but... God I love the maritime days. I can't even explain why.
Spent those two days with Kati who has gone redhead on us. (I'd post a picture but youknow. I'd probably die a slow and painful death) She claims it was an accident.
Anyway. GUESS WHAT? I HAVE PICTUHRSS!
Kuressaare in the summertime... I can never get enough. Amazing~ ♥♥
This was the wooden ships exhibition (exhibition my ass). COLOURFUL SIGNAL FLAGGIES, YAY! I wish I had a better picture but youknow, I'm sort of a fool when it comes to things like that.
Mum and I watched the sunset and listened to Jazz (quite involountarily, mind you) coming from across the bight (that the word, I'm looking for?)
Again, ignore the world that's dangerously tilting to the left. The world was rotating too fast, it got away from me.
The main tent and some badass clouds. Why is everything so empty you might ask?
Cause mom and I were sitting in the closed area, where they didnt let people in until the concert started. we were VIP, bitches.
Yeah I'm just cool like that. /gloat
That was day one.
Day two there was the optimists regatta (what about the pessimists? Aren't they allowed to compete?), the Jaan Tätte concert, where we didn't go, but apparently most people did because when we arrived back at the maritimes area, the place was basically deserted and all the roads were full of parked cars, the parking lots were overflowing and the city itself empty. Was awesome.
So we waited a bit, listened to the "kihnupoisid" concert and then finally the celebrations culminated with a viking-style boat burning.
In the good old days the only way to respectfully retire a boat was to burn it so they dragged some old boat that had been rotting away somewhere, onto the grassy area near the water and burned it. There was chanting and stuff which you will hear for yourself when I finally get the videos up but until then looky at the pictures.
Was really awesome. Moar pictures? Here.
And that's about it I think. Look at the pictures and soon I'll upload the videos about the thunderstorm we had at the beginning of this week and the boat burning videos.
I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.

A damn fine book, if you are asking my opinion, what else could have held my attention for 500 pages in one day?
So basically at first I was thinking of writing what I think of the book here, but I realised that honestly, I'm no critic and I'm also not very good at describing such books, so I'll just use the help of wikipedia.
I'll just bring out the important stuff, if you are interested then you can find more information here (english) and here (estonian)
The author of the book is Stieg Larsson, who was a Swedish journalist and writer, best known for the Millenium trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest) Larsson wrote about three quarters of a fourth novel before his sudden death in November 2004, wich was, incidentally a heart attack, a topic which he touched, at least in his first book, several times.
The genre of the book is a Crime/Mystery novel, quite an interesting one at that.
It was pulicated in 2005, translated to Estonian in 2009, if anyone happens to care.
Basically the primary characters in the series are Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist. Lisbeth is an intelligent, eccentric woman in her twenties with a photographic memory whose social skills are rather poor. Blomkvist is an investigative journalist, a celebrity in his own right, and has a history not totally dissimilar to Larsson's own.
The book is written in a format that is rather confusing at first. Namely it jumps from one characters point of view to another while they are in different cities and dealing with diffeent problems, in the middle of the book they finally unite and things get slightly less confusing.
Personally, I didn't find it too problematic to keep track.
I tried to make some short summary out of wikipedias 4-paragraphs long essay so sorry if something seems odd or out of order:
A middle-aged journalist, Mikael Blomkvist, publishes the magazine Millennium in Stockholm. Facing jail time and professional disgrace, Blomkvist steps down from his position on the Board of Millennium in order to protect what reputation remains to the magazine.
While Blomkvist considers the bleak prospect of jail-time and time away from the Magazine he helped to create, he is offered an unlikely freelance assignment by Henrik Vanger, the elderly former CEO of Vanger Enterprises. Blomkvist visits Vanger on his estate on the tiny island of Hedeby, several hours from Stockholm. The old man draws Blomkvist in by promising not only financial reward for the assignment, but also promises that at the end of the contracted year, he will furnish Blomkvist with solid evidence that Wennerström is truly the scoundrel Blomkvist suspects him to be. On this basis, Blomkvist agrees to spend a year writing the Vanger family history as a cover for the real assignment which is to solve a "cold case"—the disappearance of Vanger's great niece Harriet some 40 years earlier, when she was sixteen. Blomkvist soon becomes acquainted with the members of the extended Vanger family who are variously mad, uninterested, concerned, hostile, or aloof. Blomkvist is resigned to being unlikely to solve the riddle of Harriet's murder given that the police were unable to do so, but he fulfills his contractual obligations by immersing himself in the case. Despite following endless dead leads, eventually a series of serendipitous new lines of evidence arise.
Then he is introduced to Lisbeth, a very talented computer hacker and the rest you are going to have to read for yourself.
The novel is focusing on violence and crimes against women, there are a couple of pretty graphic scenes of violece in the book and quite a few brutal murders. Also there is violence against pets and animals. Like a very brutal murder and dismemberment of a cat. So if you are a bit faint-hearted, don't read the end of chapter 21. Just saying.
Three movies have also been made.
And just for the record, here are the book titles in Estonian:
Tüdruk, kes mängis tulega
That's it for today, Kelly over and out.
Okay so Blogger is being a bitch again (actually I'm starting to think the problem is my computer not blogger since I didn't have these problems at Kajas) pictures may arrive tomorrow. No promises.
