Titles are so yesterday. Pff, i have no idea, what i`m going to write yet and if i have finished writing, it`s usually full of different stuff, there`s no way i`ll find a suitable word or two to describe it all. For now on, i shall just add randome words for the title. That keeps the excitement up also! Or that`s what i`m hoping for...
As The Client is coming this Thursday, everyone`s really busy and there`s a lot of things to get ready before that. It seems that it`s going to be impossible in some matters. For example, we`re doing this one wall thing. It is a decorative part, that you hang on the wall. It`s about 2m high and maybe 3-4 long (my womenly eye doesn`t work in a way as a man`s eye would work. You know: 200m? how the hell should i know how far away is that? or How far away is that house, you ask me? I don`t know, i`m a woman. or How heavy is this thing? What? I don`t know, quite heavy. Could be 2kg or 10kg. etc.) So, it has a bottom and a top part, where are going to go 80 pices that are 2m long, 150-300mm wide and 8,7mm thick woodpieces (jes, these number i know, because it`s written on them). At first i had to sand them to the right thickness. That was quite tricky, because the machine changed the level all the f*ckin time! And today was the first time they fitted the fins (jeps, these pieces are called fins) into the bottom part. And they fit perfectly! I just held my breath at that moment and almost pissed myself out of reliefe! I would say, thank you god, but he didn`t have anything to do in it, so nääh. I´ll thank myself. Aaaanyways, after i sanded them into the right thickness, we had to sand the edges off a bit and then start dyeing with black dye. All this sanding took about 4 days maybe? Cannot remember anymore. Too long anyways. So, we started dyeing them and then at some point it turned out we are in a position in which we lack dye. Not a really nice durprise, i must say. That made things much more complicated, because we should be ready with everyhting by tomorrow evening, but there`s still missing the top part and we have to dye still about 15 fins and then have to colour them all over again with another coat... My neck starts twitching, when i think about it all. Today i spent most of the time sanding the dyed fins, because the dye is mixture with water and that makes the wood "hairy". It was exciting to fins some other colour from my nose earlyer. Such fun! The gray and yellow days are gone, black is back! Yeaaah!
So, we are in a position that seems impossible to finish the damn thing. Not only do we have to colour the dyed fins again, we also have to put danish oil on them. (neck twitching again) Well, today i was 10 hours at work, so i guess it`s going to be another 10 hours tomorrow. Fingers crossed, that we somehow will manage. Would be nice. You know, not to be involved all the time in some things, that don´t get done and then there`s the couple of Finns, who everyone can blame. Hahahhaa, but that`s why we are here for :P (HAH, my first smilyface! Grand, i`ll rise a glass for myself)
Allthough the days are fast and furious, there`s still time for a lot of laughter and stupid jokes. Yesterday the Big Bear told me that i should not joke around with him in the beginning of the week, because then he`s grumpy. I should do all my jokes on Friday. I thought that was a joke... it wasn`t...
the dogs are a nice part of everyday life there aswell. Here you can see The Main Man`s parents dogs. (And yes, i changed The Master to The Main Man, because my dear argentinian dude likes to be called Master. It brings a big pleased smile on his face every time i use it. I usually bow down at the same time too. It makes it all much more dramatical and awesomer for him.) We call the smaller one Rotta and the bigger one The Old Dude. They`re both so funny-looking. Lettu-dude is always annoying him. And he`s annoying everyone else also... ofcourse. Today he stole things from one of the japanese guys about 4 times. He ran quickly under a car and was super-excited and very proud of himself. Must have been quite a pain in the hole i can imagine. But i still love him. I secretly pet him when no-one`s watching. I`ve understood it`s not a good thing to just play with the dog in the worktime. But why the hell is Lettu-dude there then! He`s a puppy and a rather awesome one i can tell, so how can i NOT be distracted all the time? He has even stopped pissing on the floors and doing less biting on peoples legs! Oh i adore him. You should see his face when we all arrive in the morning. "jeee, more humans!"
Secretly i hope every mornging that the car-ride is going to be a bit safer. I have noticed that when i ask a lot of questions and disturb the driver with my annoying sh*t, he drives quite ok. But i´m not a morning person and it`s really hard to produce a lot of sentences then. I told them one day when we were leaving the workshop, that they are to most crazy car-owners i have ever met. They giggled a bit and 2 seconds later Master just sprayed water from a hose inside the car (in my face). So what can you do but just grow into it and maybe some day start enjoying it. Maybe even love it.
My car-rental dreams are now in the bottom of a bottomless pit. As a bottom of a bottomless pit is impossible, so are my car-rental dreams. Turns out, you have to be atleast 25 years old (god damn it this 1 year makes no difference! I´ll be as useless the next year as i am now!) and have to own a credit card... AAARGHHH! Well, the prices were really ok and i allready started to search for a webpage where i could order my coffin from (but i guess you need a f*ckin credit card for that also!). I guess stealing it is then. I have noticed (not intentionally) that people don`t lock their cars when they go to the shop. Have to start looking some awesome "car starts from putting two wires together that are exactly there and everything is super easy" videos from YouTube. Or i`ll just take the bus to Dublin and go to the zoo.
Yesterday was sooooo nice weather. Even today, but it stopped being nice the second i got back home. But yesterday i basically ran home, jumped to the shower and then ran quickly back to the city, just to enjoy an hour of the sun. But the wind was freezing. So it was "brrrr... Baltics" for half of the time and then a bit of "aaah, nice and warm". But it was worth it. I followed the sun, because the day was ending and i had to go along with it so i didn´t get stuck in the shadow. There was some kind of a russian family and i think they might have thought that i was stalking them. it seemed they were hanging also where the sun was, so it turned out quite awkward, because there weren´t that many people on the streets.
Uuh, i think i have forgotten to mention that we outlived 3 days of no-heating. The gas just ran out just like that. Well, we didn´t have anyways no idea how long it would last and no-one told us anything also. There are 4 big "bottles" in our little yard as you can see. Well, it`s too much to name it a yard... dear lord, i have no idea what`s it suppose to be. It`s ugly as sh*t with no purpse except mounting those dangerous-looking gasbottles. Aaaanyways, it took 3 days to get a full bottle there. It was quite sad to go to the shower and wipe yourself with a totally damp towel. Nääh, not damp, it was totally wet. Let`s not make anything better-sounding than it actually is. (and jees, damp is the word. Not moist. We were told by a totally drunk guy outside a pub. This feels like déjà-vu allready, awesome!) And have you ever found yourself thinking that is there really any point using the toilet paper? (talking about the nr. 1, not nr. 2, just to make that clear, and i guess from a womans point of view?) Neither have i... untill now, ofcourse. You see, the thing is that as the air is so damp, the toilet paper is as damp as the towels after shower. So what`s the point? Nääh, it`s not THAT bad, but i just found myself thinking about this matter a week ago or so. I feel like i should share this thought with you. Because it`s so unreal... Why is the toiletpaper wet? WHY? I`m going to invent a little toilet-paper-radiator! This should be a hit here!
Ok, that`s that. It`s going to be a long weekend this week.... mmm... Maybe i will go to Dublin, we`ll see. If i will, i`m going to visit the zoo and share random pointless pictures, taken with a phone camera, of animals everyone have allready seen. That`s a promise! Vote for me!
