Jukka and I, being narcissistic people, were thinking about starting a some sort of blog/LJ where we could rant and rave and review at our hearts content. We never actually got around to doing it before, but now fate seems to be forcing our hand.
Jukka was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins-Lymphoma about two weeks ago and is beginning treatments at Helsinki University Hospital Cancer clinic on Tuesday. As we are fortunate enough to have good friends and acquintances all over the globe, and would like to somehow keep all you guys informed of how we are doing without spamming all and sundry with endless e-mails, we decided to jump in at the deep end and just start the damn blog.
So here it is. Eating Muffins in an Agitated Manner will, I suppose, be mostly about how we - or more specifically Jukka - is doing, but I can't promise we won't hare off to strange tangents in the future. At the moment we know not so much, except that it is NHL, famous in Finland as the cancer the Montreal Canadiens center Saku Koivu had and recovered from. Jukka is, of course, confident that this has significanly increased his chances of having a lucrative NHL career. We are hopefully wiser next Tuesday after meeting with his doctor.
We both would also like to thank you all for your e-mails, they mean a lot. Even if I accidentally deleted most of them while reinstalling Windows. Yes I know, I am stupid that way. And further comments and questions via e-mails are more than welcome. I promise to be more careful in future. Not. And does anyone know how to save e-mail archives from Outlook Express when you have to boot the hard-disk?...
