About us, really.

This is the weblog of Sari Polvinen and Jukka Halme. We had been thinking for some time about starting a blog about, well, anything and everything, but were much too lazy to do anything about it.

Then fate sort of forced our hand: Jukka was diagnosed with cancer, specifically Non-Hodgkins-Lymphoma. Blessed as we are with friends all over the world, we thought that a blog might be an easy way to keep everybody apprised of how we are doing and also what we are doing.

Later addition: As the Immortal Bard John Cleese said in Monty Python and the Holy Grail:

"I got better!"

The name of the blog cames from Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Ernest:

JACK: How can you sit there, calmly eating muffins when we are in this horrible trouble, I can't make out. You seem to me to be perfectly heartless.

ALGERNON: Well, I can't eat muffins in an agitated manner. The butter would probably get on my cuffs. One should always eat muffins quite calmly. It is the only way to eat them.

We figured that we aspire to eating the muffins of life calmly like Algy, but if we can't do that we will still eat them, and damn the butter :-)
