The Internet seems to really like cats. The Internet also seems to really like putting things on things. Putting things on cats = double the awesome, as far as the Internet is concerned. Of course, most cats don’t agree and promptly run off the minute you approach them with a camera and a random object for placement.

Except, as most of you well know, Misu is not “most cats.” And with that statement, I hereby inaugurate a new semi-regular feature for this blog: “Stuff On My Cat.” Because really, she spends 3/4 of her time flat anyway, might as well start spicing up all those belly photos.

Here, some shots from this past December, getting into a festive holiday mood:

It has been brought to my attention that I have not posted any cat pictures for nearly half a year. OMG, what sort of blog am I running here if I’m forgetting to post about my cats? o.O

To remedy this, I present to you not one but TWO Misu and Coco videos, plus a photo gallery of assorted furry goodness ;-)

No, really — unless you are my parents, you probably won’t be interested in these pictures. Just stuff that I snapped here and there in my wanderings, of dubious interest and usually bad resolution.

Motorbike protest outside of Piccadilly station. Very loud, so you might want to turn down the speakers if they’re on.

Pretty view above Fort Horsted of the surrounded Kent countryside and beyond.

Drive-by scenery of Kent.

More drive-by scenery.

Yep, this would be the post where I put up completely random photos of stuff I’ve seen around town. I did the double decker bus tour last time around and took pictures of all the typical monuments, so those are NOT here. If, for some strange reason (hi, mom and dad!) you want to see those old touristy photos, I suggest you head over to my Facebook photo albums. Otherwise, brace yourselves for nonsensical picspam!

Well, not really. More like I took a bunch of photos during the holiday season and forgot to share them until now. Better late than never? Besides, looking at snowy pictures is much nicer when it’s warm and sunny outside :-)

Can you tell I’m going through my old photos folders? Yeah :-) Some pictures of a particularly lovely rainbow on the last day of August 2010, right outside our kitchen window.

It will have been one full year since we moved to Finland this May! However, I will be away on a business trip when that anniversary date comes, so I’m posting and scheduling a bunch of stuff early to make up for it. Here is a random hodgepodge of pictures I took while wandering around our little corner of the country in June and July of last year. Yes, this is mostly for you, Mom and Dad :-)

So we spent this past weekend in Stockholm (only a 40-minute plane ride, though the transport to and from the airports add us as well) and are just now recovering from it. On the up side, though, my deep love for non-LA public transportation remains intact. Gads, I wish I’d grown up somewhere with a decent subway system. Mental note — slipping and slogging your way through winter streets in a large city is much harder than it looks, especially when you’re wearing several pounds of bulky winter clothing o.O

It was still fun and very pretty, though! We stayed with a university friend of T’s and she was kind enough to accompany us on most of our wanderings. She recently moved into this gorgeous 18th-century penthouse flat that’s smack dab in the middle of old town and the palace district, so it was an ideal starting place for touristy activities.

We mostly shopped and took in the local scenery this time around, since we only had limited time so it would have been hard to schedule any museum or tours. We’re told that spring is a much better time to be doing that sort of thing anyway, so will get around to it next year. We had a bit of difficulty finding a restaurant for dinner on Saturday night, since it seems that most of them do reservations-only “Christmas tables” all the way through December. Which leaves me wondering where all the other countless tourists must have been having dinner, because I’m sure most of them, like us, were just walking through the doors expecting normal restaurant service. Meh. We ended up finding an adorable little Thai place one night and went to a cozy Indian place the second night. Which was perfectly fine with me, since we don’t really have access to either back in Rauma. Happily, I also carted home a suitcase full of various dried and canned Asian groceries, so will be able to add a bit of needed ethnic variety to my kitchen.

All in all, walking around and taking pictures was plenty for me on this first trip, since part of the fun of a new city is just taking in the atmosphere. Here, have a look!

One of the many views while walking along the river. It was all very picturesque and crowded. And there might have been a regrettable skirt-blowing-up incident which we will no longer speak of.

One of the handful of bridge crossings we made.


Makes me want to put on a ruff and tights, yo.


Proving that a fool and his money are quickly parted… If you guess that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAPPENS, you are right. Sigh.


There was a wizard. He had a bulb on his staff. And, um, I really can’t believe I typed that just now.


County Hall has stormtroopers. And bungee-corded flying children. I’m scared, aren’t you?

FLAG!


I had to pile a bunch of things over the lid of my turtle’s tub because otherwise she tends to escape and wreak havoc on my bathroom when I am out of town. Not being fed makes her cranky, despite the fact that she’s so pudgy all her limbs won’t fit into her shell at once. Sigh.


As previously mentioned, this is possibly one of the most unremarkable sandwiches in existence.


I feel obliged to get some before I go.


I’m sure the guy on the horse was famous and all, but really, I just like that it’s a pretty horse statue.


Goats, many. Many goats. Treegoats!


Completely random shot that my camera accidentally took while I was playing with it. Fun in a moody gothic sort of way.


I want this dress.


Awesome name for a store.


mattierobertson asked for a picture of a red bus. Not only is this a picture of a red bus, it’s a picture of a red bus with a Harry Potter advertisement. Not only is it a picture of a red bus with a Harry Potter advertisement, it’s also a picture of the bus that tried to kill our bus on three separate occasions. No, really, this thing almost rammed into us at several stops because we were on the same route. I get the feeling the drivers were playing bumper cars for fun.


Obligatory tourist picture.


As much as we bitch about gas prices in LA, I’m glad I didn’t rent a car here…

Just a photo I dug up to accompany my Lost in Mexico entry. At lunch with my roommate Gina, I believe. Because wow, it's all about looking back and realizing how much better your hair styles have gotten. Get me drunk enough and one day, I might just pull out photos of the infamous perm. *shakes head* Those glasses, though, those were stylin'...

Following along with nefas' thread of cute baby pictures:





I don't remember what was so amusing in both instances. I was probably being bribed.
