Oh man, it’s already March! So it’s been a while again, eh. Don’t worry, nothing much happened. Except that we’ve been to Tallinn, I got a car, I got demoted, and I crashed that aforementioned car.

Taking an ice breaker to Tallinn

Taking an ice breaker to Tallinn.

So yeah, first things first. Sorry for forgetting the blog again, folks. I’ve been sort of listlessly drifting, just trying to slide on from one day to the next without having any energy to really do anything. I haven’t sunk into a proper depression, at least not the devastating bipolar kind I get once in a while, but I’ve just been very… Meh. My favorite pastime after work involves closing the drapes, turning on my X-Files dvd collection for background atmosphere, and playing video games. I’ve never really known what I want to do with my life, hell, not even what I want to do within a frame of the next few years, and that has returned to haunt me. Obviously, without striving for something nothing is ever going to be achieved, so that’s my situation at the moment. Almost thirty, and having achieved nothing, and feeling guilty for not really having a goal that I would personally find worth pursuing, or at least no goal that could be broadly accepted as worthy of pursuit by the society. So yeah, I’ve been going around feeling as if a big, jagged “L” has been branded on my forehead. With thoughts like these going through my head it is fairly obvious that managing the blog has not been the top priority, especially since I felt that I could not be completely honest here. But you know, fuck it. Fuck saving face. I have to at least acknowledge the problem.

Artsy stuff in KUMU.

Artsy stuff in KUMU.

Ok, the whiny bit is over now. Time for a quick overview. Girly and me took a little spa trip to Tallinn. There is a nice group on facebook that has all sorts of travel discounts posted from time to time, and we got two nights at the hotel for about 60€ for both of us, breakfast plus ferries there and back included! We were supposed to have a full set of treatments and what not, but only went to the Kalev swimming pool once, and didn’t do any treatments, mainly cos I think we were cheap and it was a bit of a bother to arrange the sessions time-wise. Shame, for it’s been ages since I’ve had a good massage. And I wouldn’t have minded some anti-age treatment, either. We stayed at the Tallink Express hotel, not bad, two or three stars, I don’t recall which, clean, roomy, right next to the harbor. The only problem was that the walls were made of paper or something, cos when somebody closed his room door the walls shook, and you could hear the couple next door whispering silly nothings to each other. And boy could you hear them fucking, everything down to the tiniest queef was ours to enjoy. What kind of ruined the trip is that the temperature was about -25 to -30 Celsius, and it was a real torture walking anywhere, with cafe/bar pit stops having to be made every few hundred meters. So it is a miracle that we managed to visit the new Estonian art museum, KUMU, in the Kadriorg park. I also visited the house I lived in for the first 9 years of my life. Too bad the yard was gated off and we couldn’t visit the sandbox I played in or climb my favorite sheds… All in all the trip was ok, even with the awful temperatures, for it got us away from our humdrum lives for a while.

Then what. Yeah, I got a car. I used to drive a Volvo S40, it belonged to my mother but since she drove the company car I got to drive the Volvo, and I was happy with that, for it was listed as my “work car”. But then the company got sold, and car arrangements changed. However, the old boss still owed my mother some money and favors, so he was persuaded to buy me a car. I chose a Volvo C30, 2008 model year, with 20000Km on the odometer for 17900€. Man, what a beautiful little car. Nice and hard low suspension, but an anemic 1.6 liter motor, although having to pay less for the gas and speeding tickets is nice. And everything was peachy until some old asshole took a wrong highway off-ramp, resulting in a head on collision. Luckily our combined velocity was about 20km/h tops, but were I there a little later, he would have made it further down the ramp, and the speeds would have been significantly higher. Anyway, I flew into a rage, jumped out of the car, kicked his rear bumper, and started shouting at the guy, stuff like “what the fuck were you thinking, you retarded piece of shit, what the fuck?!”… So the guy stayed in until he could see me relax a little and ease off. He was in a hurry to pick up his grandkid (corroborated by a phone call I listened in to, hearing both parties), and I didn’t call the cops, although in retrospect I guess should have. But we’ll see, maybe he is not gonna try to fuck me over. And if he will, I know who he is and where he lives, so could pay him a motivational visit with some friends… But enough writing for today, can’t find my camera USB cable anyway.

Ok, so the old guy didn’t fuck me over, which was nice. On the other hand, I will have to drive my damaged Volvo in its current state for the next month, because my car service is clogged with minor fender benders and could only give me an appointment for 6th of April. Plus I remembered that my new computer has a card reader, so I don’t actually need a camera cable. Yes, I have a new computer. Long story short, I tried adjusting the old one with a hammer (the new PSU wouldn’t fit) and the motherboard fried. I shit you not. Perhaps I wanted to destroy it all along, subconsciously like, in order to justify getting a new one. But let’s wrap it up, I’ve signed up for Krav Maga and the first lesson is in an hour.
