I'd do it. I like sleeping in hotel beds. Fresh linens every night.
 
2013-03-28 01:47:23 PM  
Well the first bed was too hard, and the second bed was too soft, but the third bed was just right.

Well to be fair they are looking for a professional sleeper not a professional eater or drinker.

And that's what you do at a hotel, sleep.

No, they're looking for a blogger that will shill in multiple languages.

Sure.  I usually pay to have people read my opinions.

Day 1: Decent bed, can't understand Finnish toilet.

Day 2: Decene bed, still confused by toilet.

Day 3: Shat in sink.

Isn't Helsinki the capital of Finland?  I was there for about a week once.  Nice place.

I only stay in hotels after consuming mass quantities of food and liquor. Is there another reason?

You don't throw down the don't change sheets sticker?

That isn't very environmentally responsible.

Most places I've been it is actually the reverse... you have to request to get new sheets/towels during your stay.

Sounds good to me but I'd never take a job I couldn't Finnish.

I don't drink and prefer to make my own food. Where do I sign up?

Somewhat off-topic. I have stayed in a couple German hotels in the past couple years. In the bathroom, near the toilet, there was almost always a small paper bag hanging by a string. This bag was smaller than a sack you would get a tallboy in at a gas station. What was it for?

That's what I'd assume.  Of course, when I stay at a hotel, unless its for a long time, I always keep the do not disturb sign up 24/7.   Guess I'm just paranoid.
 
2013-03-28 04:28:52 PM  
Haha .. I'll have to look for the blog and see what the paid shill reviewer says about it.  Mrs. cynicalMFer and I are spending a couple nights in that hotel about a week before the "job" starts.  YA RLY

No bar?  No problem.  It's Helsinki.  There's probably six on the same block.

When do we get a Fark party there?

There are rumblings for a Eurofark in 2014-15. I'd have applied for the job but I was busy trying out a new sleeping technique.

3 kids.  Is this where I pack, wave goodbye to the wife and the kids and enjoy 35 days of sleeping in my own bed?

Most hotel bars and restaurants suck balls. Most hotels are within walking distance of good restaurants and bars. Not seeing the problem here.

Also Helsinki is in Finland which is farking gorgeous.

If it is near I Love Food buffet in Kamppi Centre... sign me up. Best cream of broccoli soup on the planet.... and super thick mashed potatoes, not watery American

Helsinki is the Comfort Food city....also Finland the "Arkansas of Europe"

I will also need a computer with a lot of umlauts

I got myself a nice big Bear Steak when I was in Helsinki.  Never have I felt more like a man than when I was eating bear.

How did that taste?  Don't say beary or berry.  I'd have to cry.
 
2013-03-28 05:19:51 PM  
It was pretty good.  It probably tasted better in my mind because it was registering that I was actually eating bear.  It was good and lean but kind of had a bitterish after taste.  I'd eat it again.  It was beary good!

I've had bear steak too, surprisingly good, though mine was pretty gamey around the bone.
