Did i miss it?

It was Goth Day today. Or yesterday, since it's past midnight. I only heard of this @5 pm, so i happily spent the day in a pinkish skirt... oops. Must do better next year :D

This, of course, is what every goth is supposed to look like, at least today.


Vampire white skin, black rimmed eyes, bloodred lips, curls of dark night. Can't remember when i took the snapshot. It's quite well shaken up, though, so must have been before some Big Do. I really would have liked to be all gothy and mysterious today, but, as usual, the day just sorta slipped by, and now i look like this.


Just had a sauna :P

In Russia, they have a saying. One should never marry a girl before taking her to a sauna.
I think it's because in sauna a girl has to wash off all her make-up, take her hair down, and strip free of corsets and push-ups and body-shapers. I think i pass the test fairly well, face-wise. Luckily, you don't get to see my saddle-bags :D

Notice the fetching "love is"-towel wrapped around my hair. All true goths wear them. It is known.

So.
I did do one gothic thing today. I gothed up my bed. Got thoroughly sick of cotton bedsheets. So now i shall sleep in red satin. Behold.


Last night, i went to bed feeling a bit cold, and my sheets were all clammy and yucky. I could not get warm before i put on a pair od woolen sock. That's what i really hate about cotton. It gets cold, and then it takes forever to warm up. And it's hard and coarse and heavy and blechh in every way imaginable.
I found the sheets at a flea market. If you're surprised, raise your hand and say kittehs. Two sets of sheet and fitted sheet, three euros each. I didn't need much time to consider. The sad thing was, the sets were missing pillow cases.
Luckily, I'm handy.
I took the sheets, measured, and noted that if i sew carefully, i can make combine the two sheets, and make one sheet fit for our massive bed, and still have some left over to make pillow cases. So i measured carefully, cut not-so-carefully, and managed to make one big sheet, and three pillow cases. And still i have some left over!


I sleep with two pillows, husband only wants one.
I hadn't made pillow cases since i was twelve, and was surprised to see how easy it is. From memory, i thought it would be a whole lot more difficult. But then again, I'm a pro now :P

So that's what i've been up to today. Made a decision, too. From now on, i shall add a short translation to every post. Most of my readers come from English-speaking countries, but some do come from Finland. And since i am Finnish, i think it's only fitting i include my sisters.

Ni tänään oli se Goottipäivä. Miähän en moisesta ollut kuullutkaan. Viiden main iltapäivällä sit havaitsin, että bloggerissa alkoi vilistä Goottipäivä-postauksia. Ni voijjee, taas meni pieleen. Olis ollut niin kiva laittautua oikein synkeäksi, testata vaikka sitä mustaa huulimaalia jonka löysin muutama kuukausi sitten, mutta niinpähän livahti päivä työnteossa. Ja sitten, kun pää kävi ylikierroksilla, piti päästä saunaan ja todistella edes itselleen, että pääsee mukamas läpi siitä venäläisten naimaseulasta. "elä vie tyttöä vihille, jollet ensten vie sitä saunaan"

Kun ei laittautua ehtinyt, piti laittaa edes sänky. Löysin kirpulta tosiaan satiinilakanat. Oudosti oli silleen, että setissä oli pussilakana ja aluslakana. Moisia oli kaksi, ja kun yht.hinta oli kuusi rahaa, ni ei paljoa tarvinnut harkita. Minen tykkää yhtään puuvillalakanoista, en edes puuvillasatiinista, kun non kylmiä ja ärsyttäviä, ja yhteen koneelliseen mahtuu yksi tyynyliina ja siltikin jää pölyiseksi.
Nii. Ni tänään sit vihdoin viimein, kahden kuukauden tuumauksen jälkeen (oon vähän hias) mittasin ja havaitsin, että kun ompelen kahdesta lakanasta yhden, jää yli sen verran, että saan myös tyynyliinat. Tuumasta toimeen, sano, saa tämä tyttö nukkua ensi yönä ylimmässä yksinäisyydessään (ukko on vieläkii toisessa kaupungissa kurssilla) hiostavan sähköisissä lakanoissa.
Mistä koostuu onni. Onni koostuu onnistuneista projekteista, hyvästä ruuasta, omasta saunasta ja sähköisistä lakanoista.

Happy Goths are Pretty Goths, and all Goths are Pretty <3
