Pink for October

Cat's Sneeze will go pink for October in support of breast cancer awareness.

Web sites will Go Pink during the month of October to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, get people talking about breast cancer, and raise money for research.

But to be clear, raising money isn’t the primary purpose of this web event.

The hope is that you turn your site pink (in whatever way works for your site), go out to that World Wide Web thing and educate yourself about the multiple issues related to Breast Cancer, then take that newfound knowledge and tell someone else what you’ve learned.

2006 was a great start with the roughly 1500 sites that Went Pink.

Bedroom makeover: before and after

The difference is enormous between the "old" and the "new" bedoom. Our new bedroom is the dream come true to us. In these photos it does not look as good as it does in reality. It's just perfect!

This is how it used to look:

and this is how it looks now:

(The mirror needs to be put on the wall. It wont stay like that.)

Tired but happy Chris enjoying the new bed.

The cats love it too. Here is Pörri enjoying the nap.

Bedroom renovation

On Wednesday Chris started the renovation by painting the walls. On Saturday we did the rest.

Here is the footage of our bedroom renovation:

Starting up.

Wallpapering the first wall.

Coming back from Ikea.

Wallpapering was easy this time. The Ideco Kosy wallpaper was very easy to use.

Cat's Sneeze A.K.A Buttsneeze

Chris often jokes about the name of my blog and calls it with the lovely name Buttsneeze. Did you know that there is an official description to the term "buttsneeze".

According to Urban Dictionary buttsneeze means:

1. buttsneeze

The act of farting on the toilet and excreting a large amount of liquid dump which is plastered to all edges of the bowl. Sounds similar to an actual sneeze.

Do you have a Kleenex? I just buttsneezed.

2. buttsneeze

A fart, particularly the loud whistling kind.
Also, the same as an asshat

"God you are such a buttsneeze!"

A busy and successful weekend

I'm very proud to tell you that our bedroom makeover is done. It looks even better that we expected! Yesterday we did the wallpapering, drove to Ikea and bought a new bed and some other stuff. Now we need to put the paintings and things on the wall and then everything is ready. We worked the whole day and went to bed only at 1 am.

Now I have to study the rest of the day.

I will publish the photos taken from our "new" bedroom later today.

Friday's party

Today we had a party at work. It was mostly a fun party, but as almost every time there are some people who are pissing me off. I don't like people who assume things on me and think they know me. I have a good advice to those: Please, mind your own damn business!

That's about it for tonight. Been very busy this week and there is no leisure time on weekend either. More work with school assignments and the bedroom wallpapering are on the do list.


Starting to feel desperate...

I'm getting desperate with my school assignments. The time is my enemy. I feel like weeks go by so fast and I get nothing done. Have to do one assignment by Thursday or otherwise I can forget having the Friday night off. On weekend then I have lots and lots to do.

The good news is that we got the wallpaper for our bedroom and Chris is going to start the bedroom makeover tomorrow by painting the walls.

Is Your Cat Normal?

To see if your cat has a problem, ask yourself the following

1. Does your cat sleep 22 hours a day, and spend the other two
hours in non-stop eating?

2. Does your cat take frequent naps in annoying places, such as
in the center of the dinner table, in the kitchen sink, or on top
of your freshly-cleaned-of-hair bedspread?

3. Is your cat selfish? Conceited? Arrogant? Aloof? Insensitive?

4. Does he wake you up in the middle of the night and refuse to
stop meowing until you accompany him to his food bowl to watch
him eat?

5. Does your cat tear down holiday decorations? Does he destroy
any stuffed toy or cat-sized household ornament which might be
misconstrued as his competition?

6. Does your cat perceive himself to be sole owner of all
property? Does he often show disdain for your taste, or act as if
you are an embarrassment to him?

If you answered 'yes' to most of these questions . . . relax,
your cat is normal!

Here are our very normal cats:




Kiitos Kaisa ja Ville!

Kiitos ihanista kihlajaislahjoista! Sekä upeasta thai-kielisestä kortista. :0)

Thanks Kaisa and Ville for the lovely engagement presents!

Shopping and studying

My plans of intensive studying today didn't quite work out as they should have (I have no self-discipline these days). We went shopping in Jumbo with Elina and spend few hours there. After shopping we ate in a Chinese restaurant in Haaga.

I did some studying also but not as much as planned. I learned Chinese writing and it was quite interesting and pretty difficult. I have to continue practicing tomorrow. On Monday I should return the first Chinese assignment. It's about different words and how those are written.

I managed to learn and write today words like man, fish, big, forest, shell, goat and horse. Words horse and fish I found quite hard to write. I guess all of what I did today would give good laugh to any Chinese speaking person. They just look like something a child would have done. I feel like a first grader learning to write.
Do you remember how it was when you were learning how to write letters on your notebooks and the teacher would first teach you how to hold the pen in your hand. I would need some guidance on that now. I just can't make those marks look like they should! I know that it requires a lot of work. It's a art form it self.

About that shopping I did today. My goal was to search for a coat and boots. I found cool boots in Bianco's website but those were not to be found in Jumbo's Bianco (just my luck). I searched for the coat in various shops, like Zara, Vero Moda, Vila, Esprit, Aleksi13, Stockmann... I found a good looking coat in Zara, but who does those coats! The sleeves did not fit. They were too small and I don't have big arms! The lining was sewed too tight.
I'm still thinking of buying that coat from Asos. Do you know, Petra, if they deliver the package to the nearest post office, if one is not at home during the working hours? That is the only thing now that is holding me from ordering.

I did do some shopping today, but guess who did the most shopping. Yes, it was Chris. He seems to find always something to buy. I found boots, a t-shirt and some cute little stuff for my hair. We also found a new shower curtain and a carpet for bathroom (a little pink heart!).

Unfortunately the rechargeable batteries of my camera don't co-operate anymore so no pics are available of my purchase tonight.

This is the coat I like:

Signs Your Cat Owns You

At the store, you pick up the cat food and kitty litter before you pick out anything for yourself.

The Christmas cards you send out feature your cat sitting on Santa's lap.

Your cat signs the card.

You accept dates only with those who have a cat.

If so, you eventually double-date with the cats to see how they get along.

You sleep in the same position all night because it annoys your
cats when you move.

You think it's cute when your cat swings on the drapes or licks the butter.

Your cat "insists" on a fancy Sunday breakfast consisting of an
omelette made from eggs, milk, and salmon, halibut, or trout.

Your cat eats out of cut crystal stemware because you both
watched the same commercial on television.

Your cat sits at the table (or ON the table) when you eat.

Your cat sleeps on your head.

When people call to talk to you on the phone, you insist that they
say a few words to your cat as well,

When someone new comes to your house, you introduce your cat,

The search for wallpapers

We have been searching materials for the bedroom makeover. The idea that we first had can't be done because the material we wanted to use on the walls can't be found anywhere. The place that used to sell those has sold them out.

Today we were on a search for wallpaper and we found a very stylish one. The only problem is that it's so new that they don't have it in stock yet. Tomorrow we will find out when they are getting the wallpaper. Our bedroom will then look totally different. This is what we are after:


Rules For Cats To Live By

Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It is not necessary to do anything. Just sit and stare.

Do not allow any closed doors in any room. To get door open, stand on hind legs and hammer with forepaws. Once door is opened, it is not necessary to use it. After you have ordered an "outside" door opened, stand halfway in and out and think about several things. This is particularly important during very cold weather, rain, snow, or mosquito season.

If you have to throw up, get to a chair or bed quickly. If you cannot manage in time, get to an Oriental rug. If there is no Oriental rug, any quality carpeting is good. When throwing up on the carpet, make sure you back up so it is as long as a human's bare foot.

If one of your humans is engaged in some activity and the other is idle, stay with the busy one. This is called "helping," otherwise known as "hampering." Following are the rules for "hampering:"

1) When supervising cooking, sit just behind the left heel of the cook. You cannot be seen and thereby stand a better chance of being stepped on and then picked up and comforted.

2) For book readers, get in close under the chin, between eyes and book, unless you can lie across the book itself.

3) For paperwork, lie on the paper in the most appropriate manner so as to obscure as much of the work as possible. Or pretend to doze, but occasionally reach out and slap the pencil or pen.

4) For people paying bills or working on income taxes or Christmas cards, keep in mind the aim: to hamper! First, sit on the paper being worked on. When dislodged, watch sadly from the side of the table. When activity proceeds nicely, roll around on the papers, scattering them to the best of your ability. When being removed for the second time, make all four legs flail around wildly in order to push pens, pencils, and erasers off the table.

5) When a human is holding the newspaper in front of him/her, be sure to jump on the back of the paper. Humans love surprises.

6) When a human is working at the computer, jump up on the desk, walk across the keyboard, bat at the mouse pointer on the screen and then lay in the human's lap across arms if possible to hamper typing in progress.

As often as possible, dart quickly and as close as possible in front of the human, especially on stairs, when they have something in their arms, in the dark, and when they first get up in the morning. This will help their coordination skills.

Always sleep on the human at night so he/she doesn't move around too much.

When using the litter box, be sure to kick as much litter out of the box as possible. Humans love the feel of kitty litter between their toes.

Every now and then, hide in a place where the humans cannot find you. Do not come out for three to four hours under any circumstances. This will cause the humans to panic (which they love) thinking that you have run away or are lost. Once you do come out, the humans will cover you with love and kisses and you will probably get a treat.

Whenever possible, get close to a human, especially their face, then turn around, and present your butt to them. Humans love this, so do it often. And don't forget guests.

A gray Monday

It's always somewhat dull to start the week. Especially if you have lot to do and no free time at all. I'm always waiting for the weekend but now as I'm studying and working at the same time I have to study also at weekends. It's sometimes very hard to start doing assignments on weekends. I would much rather do anything else.
I just have to think that this wont last forever and after I have graduated I have interesting times a head. At least that's what I have been planning.

Today it has been a very gray and uninspiring day. It rained a lot in the morning and I waited 20 minutes for the buss in the rain. I had a very heavy bag with me and I was really pissed off when I got to work. I hate mornings like that. Sometimes the weather is so bad that it gets you in a lousy mood right from the start.

Now I feel much better already. It's nice to be in your own warm bed with a furry friend or two.

We could really need one of these or then a bigger bed which we are hopefully soon buying. Pörri fell out of bed one morning and sometimes I don't have any space at all as I'm squeezed between Pörri and Chris.

Olet luonteeltasi 38% kissa.

Olet oman tiesi kulkija. Voit istua tuntikausia ikkunalaudalla haaveilemassa ja rakastat päiväunia. Jos jokin kuitenkin herättää jakamattoman mielenkiintosi, olet keskittynyt saalistaja, joka ei luovuta ennen kuin on saanut haluamansa.

Minussa on myös 35% koiraa, 8% marsua/hiirtä (en saa valitettavasti kuvasta selvää mikä jyrsiä on kyseessä.) ja 19% kultakalaa(!). Olisi kovin kiinnostava tietää minkämoinen on kultakalan luonne.

Kiitos vinkistä Kaisa!


Top 10 Things A Cat Thinks About


10. I could have sworn I heard a can opener.

9. Is there something I'm not getting when humans make noise
with their mouths?

8. Why doesn't the government do something about dogs?

7. I wonder if Morris really like 9-lives, or did he have
ULTERIOR motives?

6. Hmmmm ... If dogs serve humans, and humans serve cats, why
can't we ever get those STUPID dogs to do anything for us?

5. This looks like a good spot for a nap.

4. Hey - no kidding, I'm sure that's the can opener.

3. Would humans have built a vast and complex civilization of
their own if we cats hadn't given them a reason to invent sofas and
can openers in the first place.

2. If there's a God, how can He allow neutering?

1. If that really was the can opener, I'll play finicky just to let
THEM know who's boss!!
