(no subject)

I slept pretty well, I had a dream where I was in some sort of modern mansion which was kind of a funhouse, there were different rooms with different activities. I have had those funhouse dreams before, they have always been entertaining but after I wake up, I feel sad because the dream isn’t real.
I remember that in one room you could throw colourful balls into toilet bowls, in another you could kill cockroaches by shooting them with needle guns, and another room was full of some sort of gas that was called “poltergeist fume”. It made people levitate in thin air, feel drowsy and cold and like their bodies were squeezed flat.

I had another dream where I played the game Pokémon: Yellow on
In the aforementioned game, you get Pikachu as your starter pokémon from Professor Oak in the beginning, and if you train it well, it becomes happier and if it’s happy enough, you can get Blue/Red started pokémons like Squirtle, Charizard, and Bulbasaur from different characters throughout the game. For example, in Vermilion City you can get Squirtle (my favourite starter!) from Officer Jenny.
So, in the dream I made it to Vermilion City, got a Squirtle, then put Pikachu into the pokémon storage system in Bill’s PC and trained the Squirtle into a powerful Blastoise.
I wondered if I could use this cheat in real life, but then again, I am stuck in Pewter City (which I pronounce “pooter city”) because you cannot advance in the game before beating gym leader Brock who has Rock- and Earth- type pokémon and Electric- type pokémons like Pikachu are defenceless against them. Oh well, I prefer the Red version anyway.

About at 10 o’clock in the morning I was awakened by a text message from my mom, zie told me zie has planned baking a blueberry pie when I get home. I took this as a sign to get up.

I also received a phone call from the parish worker J.P., zie told me that I am able to receive compensation for the Museum card. We decided that tomorrow when I receive money, I am going to go buy the card using my own money, and I can get two coupons for groceries (food and hygiene) next Friday.
I think it’s a good plan, but it depends on how much money I am going to receive tomorrow. Last week I received 40 euros to my bank account which was 13 euros on the minus, so it was only 27 euros. Oh well, tomorrow I’ll know.

I put on clothes that pass mom- inspection, took my medicine, and washed the sleep off my eyes. I took the bus 53 to Raappavuori, it was a beautiful day, hot and fine.
My mom was home, zie was about to go grocery shopping. Meanwhile, I washed my hair and took a couple of “fresh out of shower” selfies. I cannot help wondering how my hair is darker when it hasn’t been washed, and how it looks almost blonde after shower.

After mom came home, we baked a blueberry pie together. We both ate two slices with coffee, and mom put the rest into the freezer.

Mom gave me 20 euros grocery money, I decided to spare it for tomorrow when I receive more.

I took the bus 530 to Myyrmäki, then the bus 39 to Kamppi, and visited my favourite eco- market to plan for tomorrow’s purchases.

I took the P train back to Myyrmäki, and went home to wash laundry. I know it’s going to be a laundry day when I am wearing my last clean brassiere.

I played Pokémon: RED and caught Seadra, Kingler, and Slowbro, and traded Slowbro for Lickitung. Right now I am looking for Magneton, Arbok, Horsea, Scyther, Primeape, Alakazam, Porygon, Kangaskhan, Tauros, Tangela, Gloom, Vileplume, and others which I still haven’t caught, traded, or raised.

I drew the curtains, took my medicine, and soon I am off to sleep.
The lightbulb in my nightstand lamp is out. I have to hoard the lightbulbs so I won’t run out too soon.

Tomorrow I will receive money. I don’t know how much I am going to receive, but if I receive 39 euros at minimum, I am going to buy the Museum Card with the leftover money.
If I receive more than that, I will buy the card and perhaps something else, I need a new pair of pajama pants (Hennes & Mauritz at the Myyrmanni shopping center still has some adorable white pants with red hearts, they had in discount last December, I thought they were gone for good), and a new CD player (the toy shop in the aforementioned mall has Hello Kitty CD players for sale, but they have only two of them left so I better buy it as soon as possible). I also need to renew my Netflix account, I have been bored to tears without Doctor Who, Supernatural, and Sherlock. And at some point I should fetch my mended clothes from the dressmaker’s. And I need to buy a week’s worth of groceries.
