Two things for this entry – I’ve really been into stews/soups lately and celebratory pizza for good funding news!
Behind the scenes, I’ve been having quite a few days where things were more or less blue all the time. I remember the day this photo was taken – it was so nice outside but I really couldn’t be bothered to go for a walk. Just went to the gym and then to the shop.
I’m now in a race to finish two books before I have to bring them back in three days. They’re quite popular so I can’t renew them and putting another hold on them would only mean that I’ll get them again in a year’s time (if I’m lucky).
Man… the whole “Région Sud” is really the hill they want to die on, isn’t it? It’s not even “Région Sud”, it’s something like “PACA Région Sud” or “Région Sud PACA” because obviously PACA is not the whole south of France…
Finally the bus fare zones are changing! The price of my commute should half!
There are days when I really wish I had a car but most of the time I’m just glad I don’t have one and don’t have to deal with parking in the centre and trying to find my car under all the snow.
Fun fact – it would cost me less to go to the Viikki office than the Otaniemi one (and I could if I wanted to) but there is no metro to the Viikki office and I don’t like waiting for the bus outside in the snow. And the 70 is always a few minutes late, always! At least the metro comes every 2 minutes and the platforms are inside.
None of that Kone or Thyssenkrupp stuff for us! Only the best made at the “Moscow-based experienced (?) & experimental elevator factory”. With a nice phone number in sharpie you should call in case of an emergency.
