Do you ever have the kind of days when you wake up by the sounds of your neighbour's kids jumping on a trampoline and screaming?
When it's too hot outside and inside to do anything else than lazily play some half-decent computer game?
When none of the songs in your iTunes feels right and you answer to the first notes of your very favourite tunes only with a grumpy "oh no, I don't want to listen to this, shut up!" and a click on the next song button?
When you spend an hour and a half figuring out a name for your new blog?
Maybe it comes as no surprise to you that this day has been a day just like that for me.

There were quite a lot of blog names I rejected during that hour and a half. I almost went for "The Porcupine Cake" but decided the cake looks too stupid to name anything after it. I also thought about "The Locusts! Not My Fault!" and "I Know What Ice Fishing Is" but found them too confusing . "Snow and Monsters" seemed odd during the middle of the summer and "My Essential Opinions" felt a bit too much like stealing the title of The Essential Calvin and Hobbes.
So, Some Superfluous Opinions it is, and that points towards to what I'm going to do with this blog. I'll decorate this space with my opinions and thoughts about whatever I feel like writing about, thoughts that don't always seem to find an avid listener in real life but which I still want to tell someone about. A lot musical nerd talk and some text about movies, I guess, complete with a little bit of random babble here and there.

So, my name is Siiri, I'm a 17-year-old musical-theatre-and-Pixar-movies loving Finnish girl and I'll write another entry as soon as the temperature in this room recedes so that I can think again.
