What a sloppy and careless girl - she left the laundy machine - a.k.a. washboard behind - now it is gone with wolfes - and it takes forever to get a new one.

Other than that plus too little of snow that is somewhat resembling. . . .

Digital services make carbon footprint grow.

And still you're surfing?
Yes - but I have quilty conscience.

So you can do anything as long you feel guilty?
Handy - isn't it?

So "hot" in Finnish also means stolen? Does it also mean a beautiful man/woman?

Interesting that different languages share the same synonyms (at least to me, it is).

Actually, "hot" is a homonym (more specifically a homograph)

Hot car - yes
Hot woman/man - yes

Speaking of languages

As example - the english word "understand"

- finnish "ymmärtää" = go around it - you study it from all around to fathom what it is
- swedish "förstå" = go stand before / in front of it to fathom what it is
- german "verstehen" = same as swedish.

- this leaves the question: do english speaking people dig a hole underneath a new object and go there in order to fathom what it is? 😂

Maybe it was hot-wired.

Biggest problem is when we have to wash the basement windows. We need to dig a hole deep enough for the ladder.

Here is a link - in those "good ole days" a customer comes to hardware store to meet an eager salesperson . . . ladder scene starts at 4:50

No subtitles.

I cut Viivi's hair while she was sleeping.
She'll be glad because she saves the hairdresser's expence.

Now she woke up and looks into mirror . . .

. . . and is screaming of joy.

How about if we split home tasks?
?!

I think it is good as it is now.
You mean when I take care of everything?!

I can't think how you could do more.
Hello - butcher ?
