Last night was interesting. It began with a get together down town, organised by a friend of a friend. It was nice to get dressed up and see some new faces. Afterwards we went to a big club, but didn't stay too long. I cought the last tram towards home at 1.30 am.
On the tram I suddenly got a huge urge for a cup of tea. Weird. I knew I didn't have milk at home and I always have milk in my tea, even herbal, so I decided to visit a 24h grocery store. To my surprise I wasn't alone. A bunch of "normal" people were doing their shopping like it was in the afternoon. Couples, an older man, some teens. I bought milk, Sunday lunch and some fruit and walked out with my plastic bag. It felt so strange. First clubing, then grocery shopping at 2 am. Haha.
I wasn't a bit tired when I got home so I ate and then took my duvet to the couch. There was no point going properly to bed because the BIG THING would be on in just two hour. ICE HOCKEY! Finland vs. Slovakia, the fight for the bronze medal. Iiik.
Boy was it an exciting match. I was ready to give up in the second period when Slovakia scored several times, but luckily the Finnish players had more faith in their skills than I had. The third period was such a thriller!
In the second half of the period Finland made 1-3 into 2-3, into 3-3 and then 4-3. The medal was suddenly ours if we could just hold out for a few more minutes. But the Slovakian team kept pushing, and pushing and pushing. I'm sure more than one heart was racing in the couches of Finland at that point. They couldn't give in now!
It was a huge relief when Finland scored into an empty goal in the second last minute of the game. 5-3. We won! YAY! The players celebrated. The President celebrated. It wasn't gold, but it was a very welcomed bronze. Well done Finland!
After 24 hours of very little sleep I could finally go to bed. Bliss. Let's see how long I can stay up today before a small nap is in order. :)
Pleasant Sunday to you all.
