Dear Marc, it's July and I'm closing up. I'm going to the Finnish archipelago to marinate in salt seas, feast on rye and cheese and pick wild strawberries in the forest. I'll try to make it to Ivana Helsinki's Helsinki store, too.
If you, or anyone else would like to know when anything new gets posted here on LTMJ, simply mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a mail. Write "I want more" in the subject line.
Hasta la vista, baby.
ps. Standing in line before me today at the grocery store, was a small lady, perhaps 90 years old. She was a little crooked and kind of fragile, she looked somewhat like a small bird. She bought the usual - a roll of toilet paper, crackers, bananas, coffee, milk...and...a big slab of ostrich filet, which alone cost 14 dollars (even after the marked 30% discount).
It seemed almost kinky. Almost cannibalistic of her to buy another bird, in order to eat it. At the same time, I salute her. Who's to tell her now, at this age, what she should eat or not? Old people should only eat ostrich filet, and rinse it down with champagne. Old people rock. They lived the roaring 20's. When I'm 90, I'll treat you to some ostrich too. You'll be older, so try to stay healthy.
