I slept on my old bed in my old room, and I didn’t feel any kind of bittersweet nostalgia about the room where I had suffered so much during my teenage years.
I had plenty of lucid dreams, but I don’t actually remember what happened in them.
I got up at half past nine o’clock in the morning. My mother had asked me if I was awake, I told her yes but I wanted to snooze off a bit.
I brushed my teeth and had a wash, and dressed into clean clothes. I had oatmeal porridge for breakfast.
My dad went to Helsinki to play football with his friends, and me and my mother had coffee and then we went grocery shopping.
We walked to the supermarket and bought some food and lightbulbs, and took the bus ¤”! back home.
In the afternoon I decided to go back home. Mom gave me the monthly allowance, 90 euros.
I packed my stuff and hugged my mother and father goodbye.
I went to the bus stop and chitchatted with two pleasant ladies.
I took the bus %/¤ to Mole Hill, and went to Hennes & Mauritz to buy a new dress; it’s very basic, a green stretchy cotton tight fit dress with half- long sleeves and a mid- tight hem. Then I went to the supermarket and bought some skincare products (BB face cream, facial cleansing gel with jasmine oil and rosewater) and enough groceries (vitamin milk, coffee milk, rye bread with seeds, cans of soup, microwaveable meals), and a gift for Carol Anne.
I packed the stuff into my suitcase, then I went back home.
I put the groceries to their rightful places, had a little coffee, and washed a load of laundry.
I counted my money and realized that I had enough cash for only one movie ticket; I called Eleclya and told her I can buy her a ticket, but she said that she didn’t want to go to movies alone. I told her I could visit her for a little coffee today, she said it’s alright.
I went to the supermarket and bought a chocolate egg for Eleclya.
I caught the bus %/! to Taxman, and ran into Odessa on her way to Eleclya’s home.
Once at her place, we watched television, the two played Tekken on Eleclya’s PlayStation, and I tried this nose strip that is used for sucking the dirt out of blackheads. It didn’t work, so I asked Eleclya if she can lend me some of this pore- cleansing face mask; I squeezed some black goo on my fingers and rubbed it generously on my face, and let it dry out. Odessa and Eleclya had a good laugh at me, and Maya was horrified.
I peeled the mask off with Eleclya’s help, some of it got stuck on my nose ring, eyebrows, and sideburns.
Later the day me, Eleclya, and Odessa went outside to take Hipsu the dog for pee. We saw a rain of sleet coming our way down the street, and soon we turned so white with snow that we looked like marshmallows.
Odessa took a bus home, and I went to the shopping mall to look at my favourite clothing shops.
Later I took the bus %&” to Aviator City, then the train to Mole Hill, and went back home.
I washed two loads of laundry, hoovered the floor, re- arranged my belongings, and looked for stuff I could give away, or throw away.
I wrapped up two of Carol Anne’s gifts, it made me feel very happy.
I went downstairs to take the bedlinen to the drying room, and noticed that my bicycle was missing. It wasn’t in the storage room where I normally park it, or in the second storage room, or in the front yard; either I had forgotten it at my parents’ home, or next to the shopping mall, or then again, it might have been stolen.
Tomorrow I will go looking for it, and if I can’t find it, I’ll probably get a pink Jopo (a famous Finnish bicycle brand that’s almost a part of popular culture) and decorate it with a white wicker basket. Oh goody!
I started feeling a bit weird; I felt tetchy, twitchy, nervous, out of focus. I did all the errands and housework in a weird manner.
I took three tranquillizers, ate some buttered bread and warmed some tomato & lentil soup in the microwave oven.
I called my mother and talked with her a bit. I chatted with Candys-Killer on Messenger, she made me feel happy.
Soon I started feeling better, but then it was time to take my evening meds.
I got my period, I guess that’s the reason why I felt so weird.
And what do you know, Playr.org had finally regained the ability to save your game! Now I can spend the night playing Pokémon: RED! Oh joy! Oh rapture!
Tomorrow I will go searching for my bicycle; first from next to the shopping mall, and then from my parents’ home.
I will continue doing the housework.
