I had big plans for tonight. Huge, in fact. M and I had tickets to see Kent in concert in Helsinki. Kent is a Swedish band that usually sings in Swedish, but a couple of the albums were released in English as well. They sound a little bit like this:
They’re known for their unique sound and their weird lyrics. And M and I are huge fans. Tonight we were going to drive to Helsinki and have the best time ever. But apparently Kent aren’t just tripping when they’re writing their lyrics, but also when they’re planning their mode of transportation.
Any idiot could have figured out that with the Baltic Sea looking like this…
…they probably shouldn’t take the boat. As it is, over 50 ships and ferries are stuck in the ice. One of those is Viking Isabella, where all of Kent’s instruments and equipment is currently busy standing still at sea.
As of right now the concert is rescheduled for Sunday. I’m trying to see it as a good thing and make the most of the situation. I’ve done three loads of laundry today, because after going to see a live concert, laundry is the next best thing. And I’m going to make tonight into sauna night and maybe, just maybe, I’ll have time to lose 10 more pounds before Sunday so I can wear my skinny jeans to the concert. A girl can dream, right? *
