I know it is bit gay to talk about shoes but I think I am confident enough about my sexual preferences that I give it a try.
I have been hunting for new shoes about 2 months now. My old collection of skateboard shoes have seen their better days so the need for new ones was real and today, after 15 shops, I finally found what I was looking for. Mono Black Converse All Stars to me it is like holy grail and to make it this even more fabulous (<- using that word is all right cause we are talking about shoes here) ... they were on sale ! They are so pretty , so so pretty.
Below is a picture of some handsome bastard who might or might not be me, he also might wear mine new sunglasses which might or might not be tribute to Keijo “Keke” Rosberg. He is so pretty, so so pretty.
This is my second post of my ongoing adventures on travian. Last time I concentrated on my early experiments with the game and I also told about my first new friend in travian. This time we continue on latter the two and discuss little bit of subtle art of diplomatic negotiations.
The story so far:I made my first friend in travian after I attacked one village three times in a row. Victim of my raids started diplomatic negotiations in quite cunning way (translated from finish):” You fucking fag! You didn’t gain anything you son of satan 1!!11!!1!!!”. I was not startled by this ultimatum so I continued to raid him until I really didn’t get anything.
And now the conclusion…
imagine dramatic music and montage of armies moving or just keep on imaging those hot teenager girls on wet t-shirts …internet is for porn anyhoo…
After two days of constant raiding my neighbor decided it was time to change his diplomatic approach from cunning insults to more humble ways.
No Subject why u attack my village all the time
Let see what happened here. Don´t be fooled but simplicity of his message, this opponent is truly a force to be reckoned. See how he chose his subject, No Subject clearly states that he is not going to be my subject but will fight to the bitter. On his main message he doesn’t use question mark but makes a statement and this tells us that he is man of his word and also he doesn’t capital letter on start of his sentence. This way he tells us that this isn’t capital matter just a minor nuisance.
In this point I am getting bit itchy but I decided to play hardball and so used similar tactic than this master orator on his first message . I also copied his ingenious subject field.
RE:No Subject Because I can !!111!!!!!1!!!!!!!1!
Duel of wits is now on full power ! Although I am just a lame copycat here I am quite proud of my riposte but alas my opponent is not taken by my methods and informs me this in quite blatant way. RE^2:No Subject lol noob hahahahahaa
In this point I am wordless and only thing left for me is to prove that sword is mightier than pen after all. This might be fight I can’t win but still I have try.
I decided to tryout Travian after I heard lots of good things about it in IRC. So far I haven´t been disappointed. Travian is browser based game, so you don´t need fancy computer to play it, all you need is internet connection and you are ready to build your own empire among other players.
Goal of the game is to build your own city and settle new ones too. This is accomplished by building resources which you can use to build new buildings and to muster troops. After you have made a small army you can start to raid or attack other villages which are off course controlled by other players like you. There is also option for trading and diplomacy but sword seems to do the job.

Ere we go again ! After long hiatus I thought that it is time to reactivate my blog. I make no promises how long I will be blogging this time but at least I try to. I will be making some changes though and some blogs will prolly be in finnish ( language I was born to talk but my writing skills are some what medicore).
My first post will be recap of my adventures at Myspace. I still have myspace myself too but I decided to move my blog to here.
“Now Terhi tells us where it rains most” Thursday, November 23, 2006
I watched YLE´s morning tv yesterday and I heard most absurd/negative/funny introduction speak for weather broadcast. Normally it goes something like “now for weather” or “is the bad weather going to continue..” but not this time.
“And Now Terhi tells us where it rains most”
sheesh … where it rains most and btw it is still raining.
“Up in the ass of Timo “ Saturday, November 11, 2006
It is good to know that I am not the worst english speaking finn there is. Finnish rally drivers are all unfluent in every possible language there is. Check the video for one hilarious example.
Book Report – Thud! by Terry Pratchett Friday, October 27, 2006
I finished reading Thud! by Terry Pratchett yesterday and here are some thoughts about it. It was quite entertaining as Pratchett´s all works but not even close of being one of his better works. I think the major problem is that there has been too may watch related discworld books, jokes about watchmen are getting old or they have been old few watchmen books ago. Compared to his last book Going Postal, Thud! was quite an disappointment . As allways Pratchett uses his wacky discworld to mirror our own worlds problems and phenomenons. This time the book concentrates (among other things) to Da Vinci Code and Racial Differences (or perhaps problems at Israel and Palestine). It is quite admirable how Pratchett can keep up the humor even in so delicate issues. Score as a book 3/5 and as a Discworld novel 2/5.

There is a god after all ? Friday, October 20, 2006
I am not a religious person , well I do have my beliefs which could be described as a religion but do I think that there is god , no I do not. I just watched The Colbert Report 17.10.2006 and guest was author Richard Dawkins who was advertising his book The God Delusion. What I gathered from rather short interview was that the book is about how the god does not exist. Well the book is not what I wanted to talk about but something Mr. Dawkins said: ” … you get to complex things like you (colbert) by slow gradual degrees and that is the only ultimate explanation that will work.You can´t just suddenly magic complex things like God into the excitence”.
So basicly what Dawkins means is that you need evolution to create humans for example you have to have apes before humans and so on. This started to bother me and I started thinking that if that is really so that you need complex things to create more complex things wouldnt this end in to god ? So maybe God is still to come ? Maybe someday there will be God born from more complex creature than us homo sapiens but if so wouldn´t that God be here allready ? I would think that when you are omnipotent , concept like time is nothing to you and you could travel to the start of things from the end.
uh … I think I need more beer.
Post wrong picture to MySpace and win a visit from Secret Service Wednesday, October 18, 2006
Yesterday I posted link to a news story about MySpace sexual predators, it seems like other parties are intrested in MySpace too. Here is a link to a story about 14 year-old girl who posted kill bush poster she made to MySpace and was visited by S.S (U.S. Secret Service). No wonder they have not done anything about the war on terror if they spend all their time hunting down teenage agitators.
