Towards spring

Plus Six

That certainly must be a record temperature so far here in Helsinki this year.

Nothing much happened lately. Quite busy at work. Spring has come (well, at least thermal spring in Helsinki), which always comes with annoying street dust in the air. Watched a few movies, among which I liked Mullholland Drive the most, even though it mostly didn’t make any sense.

I also started to read Haruki Murakami‘s latest novel 1Q84. I probably wouldn’t have bothered otherwise, but I noticed it was on sale as a paperback and since I enjoyed his earlier work Kafka on the shore, I thought why not. It has been awhile since I’ve read a novel.

The only downside is that it’s translated in English. While I obviously can read the language, my vocabulary isn’t that extensive, so I do find myself grabbing my English-Finnish dictionary to find the meaning of some rarer words. We will see have I finished this 1000+ page swamp marathon by autumn.
