I have a confession: I like assembling IKEA furniture; checking you have all the parts and tools, and then following the pictorial instructions until in the end you miraculously have a piece of furniture is fun. It is also fun to pretend to build something.
Today, I assembled an Aneboda chest of drawers. It had 26 parts and 97 pieces of other paraphernalia like screws and the ever present IKEA-tool. It took about an hour and now I have a nice, surprisingly sturdy and dirt cheap chest of drawers in the hallway for hats and gloves and stuff. Yay.
I like assembling IKEA furniture because Kevin had never seen the stuff before and I was able to exhibit my credentials as a DIY whiz. Look, I can build furniture! Men, who needs em? (Well, apart from occasionally for other reasons.)

I shall call this my PeBloWriMo du jour. In a comment form.
Just got back home from Finncon 2009 meeting where we welcomed some new organisers and went thru what has happened during our two month hiatus. Lots have happened. We're finishing our deal with the site (Grand Unveiling will happen at the Yhteistyökokous in Tammere in eight days time, just after PeBloWriMo), asking some new Guests of Honour, revamping the website (soon, RSN, Eemeli promised) and whatnot.
And what about our home? Sari has done some magnificent things here today! One of these days were going to have our home warming thingye and you're all welcome. We need to co-ordinate these things with Suna-people though, since they are also proud owners of a new home. Hello Suna!
I also bought a book today. Been a while since the last one. More soon, I hope! Also managed to see new Viivi Hyvönen novel, Apina ja uusikuu, which I read in manuscript form a while back. Really interesting work, which I have high hopes for as a finished product. Don't let me down, Viivi!
Early wakeup call tomorrow, so I'll hit the sack now. A Swedish friend is coming to Helsinki tomorrow, in order to attend a wedding on Saturday and we're meeting for dinner in the evening. Saturday well act as guides and head toward Vanajanlinna, where Fionna (nearly typoed Fiona, ghaps!) and Mark will be wedded. Hooray!

Nope, sorry. Eemeli can't take care of any Finncon web site business until he's finished with Åcon todos. Tell him I said so.
And I think the new site will rock for Finncon. Well done finding it!

He seemed so... enthusiastic? You tell him this next weekend, he said he'd be coming to Tammere.
