Bad news

There's a lot of quotes flying around the internet that are somehow related to bad news and such. I will not quote any, because a while ago I heard someone say how "you can quote famous sayings and people all you want, but that doesn't make you any smarter".

This really made me more cynic. And I think it's bad, because I don't want to become a bitter and depressed woman.

But what I'm gonna rant about today is the fact that somehow bad news still always manage to come in triplicates.

First, I lost my laptop. Accidentally, but non the less still a big catastrophe. Especially since it will take a long time for me to get it replaced with a new one.

Then I heard that the group I dance tango in might not have locale for us dancers next year, and thus all that lovely group activity (all the boogie woogie, lindy hop and argentine tango) will cease.

And today, I found out that my favorite café here in Turku, Bossaliina, will also cease to exist. Which also means that our knitting circle Nekku will have to find another place for our meetings.

Of course, it doesn't do much good to bitch and whine about all of this. Especially if there's something you can do to help.
I'm currently borrowing Micke's laptop, when he doesn't have need of it. And however much I loved sitting at Bossaliina - enjoying their tea and cookies and ambient fifties music - we must find ourselves another café. Even if it's hard to find a café that's open after 19 o'clock on a weekday here. And I already asked around a bit if some of my friends have some ideas as to places with locales that are okay for us to dance in. Since it's absolutely impossible to dance on stone floors with tango shoes... unless you like falling.

Somehow, in the end, everything might still be all right.
But I will still miss the cookies.

As they've written on their Fb-page, it's because their lease on the locale the café occupies is expiring. That's at least what they've written, and unless they state something new, that's all anyone knows.
