well well well [UPDATED]
well well well...where can i start with my report. i better start with the saddest thing ever: saying goodbye to lovely suomi! it was Friday morning. damn, was i tired. my plan was not to sleep at all and enjoy every second but I didn’t made it...how sad...in the morning the final packing. but again back to the night before...it was really lovely. the whole Thursday was pretty crazy but cool. i went to all the families to say moikka and at my 2nd host fam's house we stayed little longer and pannukakku..kiva kiva..and the back home to great karhuvuori my parents left to the hotel so as I had time with my hostfam...it felt like x-mas. I got so much wonderful stuff...damn, i love my family! (now, its time again to get myself a tissue… lisa, stop crying and be a big girl... well, indeed big I'm but...ok, topic change!)…well, anyway. the night was really great and funny. but it couldn’t make me forget that this would be the last time...but I could enjoyed it though...I can't describe how much it ment to me but it ment everthing...the next morning was really weird. I went to otto to get ride of the beer :P and to say goodbye. At home I still had a little bit of time and so I took a nap on the really comfy (*lol*..remeber that english class, juuli puuli and min kär?) sofa...and the the final doorbell rang (mary, that sounds weird...)...well, and then it was the time to say moikka...that moment really sucked cause my parents were exactly staying next to me. it would have been better for me if they hadn’t been waiting in the car but I thought it would be rude to tell them to go...so, they were right next to me...tears were of course a must and I also felt touched when I saw my hostdad having some tears in his eyes, too... that ment so much...last hugs and exchanges and then we were off...in the car was barely place to sit cause of all my stuff...but I didn’t care in this moment...the drive to Helsinki was all right. after a while I stopped crying and felt asleep. still I had some periods when I just couldn't prevent the tears from falling down...never mind. in helsinki we had a nice day and it was great to see the white church again and all the lovely things. did u guess know that there is a new marimekko? :D well, I dunno if its new but its quite near the "old" one and it’s even bigger...around 6 o’clock we had to be at the boat for check-in. well, but they told to wait until 8… great but finally they let us in! its was odd for me but for some reason I was really looking forward to be on that boat and it was exciting and scary...the parking was so cool. Damn! after we found our place I went out and watched the boat go off from the harbour. luckily, I had moral support it was so good to talk to juuli and anne...I was still on the phone when the boat left and for a second I considered jumping from the boat but the I didn’t do it...well... I was sooooo fuckin tired...didnt get that much sleep lately...when we arrived in rostock, the weather was just wonderful...it was amazing and i felt odd being in good old germany again...the drive home was alrite...couldnt sleep there but i had my book...hei, one thing more...almost forgot it. we did a quiz on the boat and there was one question about muumi! name 4 characters...i had a total blackout...so, help me! muumimamma, muumipappa, the that suffkin or so and what the name of the granny… well, its not really a gran..some kind of human with hair...this brown rabbit and what about the yellow girl...apua!
at home i first walked through the house and checked everything out. my room was sooo pretty...my sister put up some banners with TERVETULOA...that was cool...tha first thing i did was open my suitcase and put my huge and awesome suomilippu on the wall. that felt good and i'll never remove it...i couldn’t really sleep that night...the next day i unpacked and my sister + her boyfriend came and we talked...had a nice bbq in then evening and the i met a friend really spontaneously...she just called me up and suggested to meet me there in 5 min and then hung up...yay...so i went to that place and we hugged each other for ages and tears were with us… totta kai! we went to my place and sat in the garden... then she had to go... but that was soooooo great! the rest of the night unpacking and some tv...I was online for a while too but not long
and now today. i woke up with a awful cold...my throat was killing me...went to the computer and here i am...i talked to a couple of people and now i have to go and now guess...yes, still unpacking...i hope u enjoyed reading it.. it’s weird...i have been writing diary for the whole year and sometimes it really sucked and now I’ve felt so weird not writing for 2 days.. voi voi voi...

Hi Lisa, good to hear from you again!
It's 6am in the morning here and another day gone to waste, except for the couple of hours i spent with Gilmore Girls! I'm halfway through the second season. :-)
Where do you get your junk food now that you can't eat at the famous Tuen Grilli? I think i speak on behalf of all of your finnish acquaintances when i say; hope to see you soon again!
PS. The homeless guy in the green dress is Nuuskamuikkunen, the douchebag rabbit is Nipsu and the yellowish female muumi is Niiskuneiti.
