IT DAWNED ON ME JUST NOW... @ 08:26 pm

Current Mood: Stupid from pain
Current Music: Still Pocahontas. ):

...that "douche" and "douche" are direct opposites.

***ETA: Wait a minute, scratch that. It's not true, because the colloquial "douchebag" actully seems to refer to a tool used for vaginal irrigation. So the english "douche" is a simplified version of the same :) Still funny, though, if you interpret "gel douche" to mean "vaginal irrigation gel". -Jesus. This just proves that "stupid from pain" is a real thing...***

Observe, if you will, the French Shower gel label:

On another note, last Sunday I went to my brother and his girlfriend's place to participate in a BUN EATING EXTRAVAGANZA with about ten of our mutual froends. It has since also dawned on me that this was in fact the most enjoyable social interaction I've had in a long while. Oh yes, I'm a party animal. \o/
I'm afraid we severely disappointed Girlfriend's little sister (14 years old), who was finally allowed to "party with the older kids" for the first time :DDD

Fastelavnsboller are most often translated as Shrovetide buns.
They look like this:

Or something vaguely similar anyway. I personally like having more fun things like raspberry jam and chocolate shavings in my whipped cream :) Some day I'm going to have to try the Swedish way, which is to dig out stuffing of the bun, put it in a blender with almonds, sugar and warm milk to mix, and then puttin the mixture back in the bun with some whipped cream. Or that Finnish thing with the marzipan :)
