I am a message

I found a notebook behind the sofa. It reads

THIS IS A LIST: THE FINNS DRINK MORE COFFEE THAN ANY OTHER NATION.

A HUSKY WEIGHS AROUND 20KG WHEREAS A WOLF WEIGHS 100KGS+.

GEE MEANS RIGHT AND HAW MEANS LEFT IN HUSKY.

PASI [Ikonen, Anna’s husband] WAS AN ADVENTURE RACER AND CAN COVER 1000KM ON FOOT IN A WEEK.

THE PETROL STATION IN ENONTEKIO HAS POSTCARDS OF THE PETROL STATION IN 1984.

THE ONLY BAR IN TOWN IS A KARAOKE BAR ON FRIDAYS.

NOBODY LOCKS UP THEIR BIKES.

TOGO IS MY FAVOURITE DOG ON THE FARM AND HE IS NAMED AFTER A FAMOUS RACE DOG.

TOMORROW IS JUHANNUS PAIVA OR MIDSUMMERS DAY WHICH IS CELEBRATED ON THE 23RD JUNE AS OPPOSED TO THE 21ST.

I WON’T SEE THE MOON UNTIL SEPTEMBER

All of these things are true, except that today is the 11th December and while I can see the moon any time I want, the sun won’t rise again for a month.
