spring crazy days (hullutpäivät)

Great bargins are here again in Stockmann. People waiting to enter the department store in Jumbo which opened at 8am. I was there like 5min to 8. Not so 'kiasu'. ;-) I was there to get some electronic stuff.

This event happens twice a year in all the Stockmann stores in Finland. The other crazy days sale's period is usually in october. The sales started today and lasts four days. The 4 day sales is such that they have different items on sale everyday and most of the special offer items are grabbed fast.

Since starting this blog, I'm always on the lookout for some strange details to photograph. Here's one, ´wat is it? another view of the 'spot'

Oh, since coming back from my one week break, I've had managed to revamp my blog. Finally, tried out the new blog features. They are really easy to follow.. :-) And the CDPB menu is so much neater and it was easy to install. Thanx to the CDPB forum.

the road not taken

I was on my way home and this scene stood before. I was wondering at how the snowy scene had changed just in a matter of days. The two paths also reminded me of Robert Frost's poem. Any ideas as to which path i took... ;-)

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
- Robert Frost
