Tequila should be banned.

Finally, after all the others had long gone and had fun while I was tuning the figures at the lab, I got out and had a most exquisite tartar steak at wakoen yakiniku restaurant and some very good sake; continued to A-one where the local gaijin converge on fridays, and even did not chicken out when a third party at a tiny bar on second floor was called out for. Which was a mistake; Even though I managed to evade the round of tequila that was ordered, I could not help but help the poor slovak in front of me who seemed unable to finish his glass in one go.
Sorry for that. Still am. Gh.
I am not sure if I’ve ever explained the funny phenomenon that I constantly meet people here that look *exactly* like some friends or aquaintances from Finland; for instance, one girl at the campus looks and talks and behaves precicely like Irrette, even though Irrette does not look japanese and the other gal definetly does. I can not explain this; but spending time with those people whose Finnish copies I know is really enjoyable.
Last night there was this guy in his twenties who looked, talked and behaved exactly like a guy I had a crush on in high school. He was even telling me the same stories the other one did some 15 years ago.
Would’ve been pleasant also, except that he is the son of a friend from around here (who also looks like an other friend of mine, just some 15 years older…)
Boy, haven’t felt this old for ages.

  1. Alkuvaiheissa Ruotsissa oloani minäkin olin näkevinäni paljon samoja piirteitä – jopa suorastaan samankaltaisia henkilöitä – kuin mitä Suomessa on ihmisiä. Tämä askarrutti minua paljon, mutta varmaan jossain psykologian kirjoissa selitetään ilmiön johtuvan siitä, että haluaisi nähdä kyseiset henkilöt. Tällöin tiedostamattaan “etsii” samoja piirteitä ja mielikuvia omaavia henkilöitä? Tiedostamattomasta etsinnästä johtuen voi olla “herkempi” huomaamaan samankaltaisuuksia ja yhtäläisyyksiä?

  2. Täytyy olla sit todella tiedostamatonta, kun monet tyypeistä jotka tulee vastaan ja näyttää joiltain tutuilta näyttää sellaisilta ihmisiltä joita ei ainakaan ole tietoisesti ajatellut vuosiin… Mä pikemminkin haluaisin uskoa että ehkä ihmiset ei kaikki ookaan aivan erilaisia:)
