I can gladly announce the result of the poll
question that has been up here since last week. Relim's 4th kid
is going to be a boy
finally a man to pass his heirs to!
- Ling now has a steady
gentleman to walk her around. She met the guy where she works, already
back in august. Things have moved slow but now
it is official. Ling has also retired most of her mortals, so
she could have more time for rl, and she
isn't missing it much. She says having a maia to talk
to your friends is just enough.
- As some of you remeber, in october
Rut was visiting Estonia. Here i share with you some of
the funniest moments that happened to her as well as her friend, who was
travelling with her. The trip to Estonia was supposed to be 5 hrs, but
due to several misinterpretions and changes, it stretched to 13 hrs.
Instead of one plane-switch they travelled through Norway, Sweden,
Finland and from Finland with a boat. Arriving to Estonia they had no
local currency so some estonian man arranged them a buschase and paid
their tickets, that finally took them to their destination. Since - when
they were stuck at Finland they already kissed their conference goodbye
- the lady on intercom talked only finnish, and they had no idea from
where the ferry would leave. The people had all been nice, but not the
birds in Estonia. Rut had taken some national food with her, to give to
the hosts. So at night when they were settling in to their hotel, she
put all of it outside, behind the window, since there was no fridge.
There were sheep head, sour shark and sheep guts plus various more
goods. The birds ate everything but the shark! Also, she planned to see many people that play
mume, in Sweden as well in Estonia. She wrote all the phone numbers to the one and same
piece of paper, which she naturally left on her home table, when she
left. Next time, next try!
- Due to the horrid lag that
surrounds us currently, many of the playing people just sit and idle or
don't play at all. But seems that all the players don't understand or
just dont take the message #lag warning# too seriously, so the death is
all around us.
- Spears did a brave thing just a few days ago. You
know how all the finns like this clear liquid called vodka? He and his
friends bought a bottle of it one day, and as he looked at the bottle he
felt a certain urge to say 'No!' and pass. This is what we call
- On 9th november Fergus, Einalem and Luininu
came inter-state and met for a cup of coffee. A fun time was
had and many mume-stories were shared. Also they took the excuse to
spend Einalem's impending 25th birthday as well as Fergus's and Einalems
5th anniversary of being together. Unfortunate was only the fact, that
the camera supposed to record these happy moments had been left on the
