Here we go…again:

I kinda dragged some of my friends to that awesome sushi place I’ve been posting about in my last 2 blogs. It was actually perfect timing because our waitress seemed to be a bit hungover and gave us starters for free so we would not be so mad at her for bad service.She also forgot to charge us for our bottle of wine. Don’t care if it was rude or not…we just paid our bill without asking if she has forgotten about the wine. Tough luck 😉

We enjoyed some laughs (and cider) outside

went out for dinner & celebrated Jesse’s bday

shot time 🙂

I seriously don’t know why I am so red in this picture…I guess the shots made the devil in me come out for a wild swirl 😉

can you see the (dirty) snow in the background?

Can’t believe Easter is over already. Having 4 days off in a row has never felt so great. I’m back to saving the world again tomorrow. 😉

Especially if I get to spend it with great company, awesome sushi, delicious wine, lovely sunshine, a good movie, candy and some more wine.

We “attempted” to watch Woody Allen’s “You will meet a tall dark stranger” but somehow we ended up talking a teensy bit too much and might have lost track of the plot a bit…but that made the whole thing even better! We decided that we’re gonna do more of those chilled out movie nights as we are all getting older and those nights are actually pretty relaxing and it feels great  and relieving that you (for once) don’t wake up with the usual major “Finnish hangover” the next day 😉

I had a birthday on Thursday. This usually happens to me once a year. But this year I could enjoy fame that lasted for full three days. There was a little surprise party for me at work on Wednesday already. A colleague tricked me into going into the office kitchen to get something but when I entered the kitchen I saw all of my colleagues standing there, smiling, yelling…”surpriiiiiiiiiiiiiiise!!!!!!!!” I was a bit confused. At first, I actually thought I missed my own birthday. They decided to celebrate my Highness a day early as a lot of colleagues would not be in the office on “the real day”. It was pretty cute actually. I got a nice card and we had some cookies and traditional finnish bakeries and pastries. Yum!

Thursday came. I did not feel like having a birthday at all. To be honest, I actually forgot it was my birthday but was reminded again by a colleague once I was back in the office. Priceless moment. It was quite a weird day though as I was so busy at work and did not really have time for any birthday thoughts…

 

I got a lot of fan mail that day…>>><<<…I sincerely love my friends…fans…I mean my fans!!! 😉

Friday came. Went out for some delicious sushi and wine with some friends. The place is the best in Helsinki and we were pretty lucky we got seats as they do not take reservations.

cheers to me and my awesome friends!! 😉

We spent quite an amount of money at the restaurant but awesome people need awesome food that costs an awesome amount of money 😉

I’m gonna spend the rest of my birthday weekend in bed. I am sick. I have tried to deny it during the last few days but I guess being a quarter of a century old now leaves its marks…slowly but surely 😉

Have a great weekend everybody!
