I went to the cinema tonight to watch La La Land. I had not watched the trailer before. The only things I knew about the movie were whatever they said or showed on the Academy Awards, which I watched live between 3.30 am and 7 am.
It got six Oscars, and I am sure it deserves it. But honestly, it was boring at times. And the story itself was a bit weird with the woman thinking how her life would have been if she had stayed with the musician.
Sure, the dancing and most songs were really good and the movie was made in a good way. 🙂 But I don’t think I will get in on DVD. May be when the DVDs are lowered to cost 5-10 euros, but not as soon as it comes out. It’s a good movie, but for me it was just a good movie. I have seen many more movies that I enjoyed much more. And where I didn’t yawn…
Lots of wet snow when I walked home from the cinema.
Just a few more weeks (4 weeks) until the start of the F1 season! 😀
Today I made sure I will have the TV channel to watch F1. 🙂 They will turn on the TV channel from March 1st, so I don’t have it yet. But next week I will.
I don’t really care what the cars look like. I know some fans are upset that this year’s cars has a shark fin on the back (at least some teams have it)! And they are complaining about the ugly nose of the car. But for me what matters more is how fast they are on the circuits.
I hope Ferrari will be able to win races this year (and especially Kimi Räikkönen of course!). It will be interesting to see how Valtteri Bottas does in the Mercedes. 🙂 For sure it will be difficult at first with a new team, and Hamilton as a team mate. But I’m sure he’ll do fine, if Mercedes delivers a winning car. At least some podiums I expect from Bottas this year.
This year I am not going to see any GPs live, like I did last year. I’ll watch everything on the TV. It will be fun to watch the Austrian GP on TV, because I will be able to see the scenes that I saw in reality last summer! May be they will show the seat or the section where I sat! And I will remember the F1 village if they show it on TV.
Lately I have been cross stitching this picture from the February 2017 issue of CrossStitcher magazine. 😀
Today I bought a frame and framed it. I will keep it on the drawers where my TV is, so it will not hang on the wall. It has a piece of cardboard on the back so it can stand on a table.
It was fun and easy to cross stitch. No backstitches, only cross stitches. I used threads and fabric that I could find at home, so the colors are not exactly as they were in the magazine.
Reflections in the glass makes the color changes on the fabric. So there are no stains on the fabric.
I have got my first smart phone. IPhone SE. 🙂 I think the color is called rose gold. It’s a little pink.
Mum got one too in the same color. I bought mine earlier in the week, and yesterday I went and got mum’s phone. Luckily there was a different guy in the store then. He was really kind. 🙂 When I got my phone there was an arrogant man that really made me irritated. My God! I work with customers too (when I work…). I would never treat customers like that.
Oh, well… There’s a lot to learn. Apps, which I have never had before, obviously. I have Instagram now, and so does mum. I have only posted two pictures, but I have started to follow some people, mostly relatives and local companies. I also have Candy Crush saga. I have been playing it on mum’s Facebook (we are on level 1398). It’s fun playing the first levels. I am on level 70 now.
This weekend my sister’s family will probably come and my nephew Rasmus will help us a little. He will change the plastic on the screen etc. I also have to ask him about the volume, because I can hardly hear anything when I am on the phone with someone else. I’m sure it’s just the volume that needs to be adjusted.
One problem is that we don’t know how to, or even if it is possible, to move all the contacts from the old phone to the new phone. It may not be possible. Then all the contacts are lost and we have to find the phone numbers etc. somewhere else. 😦
The last weeks I have spent a great deal of time crocheting Moomin characters. 😀
To read more about the different characters and see more pictures of them, visit my creative blog (link above).
Here is a group picture of the Moomin characters that I decided to crochet.
I am not going to crochet any more of the Moomin characters, even though there are many more of them in the Moominvalley.
So, today I went to the cinema and watched Swiss Army Man. You know, the farting corpse movie… 😀
I don’t read reviews, because I want to go to the cinema not expecting anything. I knew of course what was going on in the movie, because I had watched/read interviews with Radcliffe.
Anyway, I did like the movie. It was funny and the two guys were cute together. Both Radcliffe and Dano were really good. I enjoyed the movie. Go see it in a cinema near you if you haven’t already done it! 🙂
I was laughing at some scenes or something that Manny (Radcliffe) and Hank (Dano) said. And it takes a lot before I actually laugh. So that is saying something.
Will get the DVD when it comes out. Now, if Street Cat Bob would come to the cinema too, that would be awesome… But still nothing about the movie on the cinema’s website, so I doubt it’s coming. I just have to wait for that DVD too to come.
The last few days it has been very cold, -15 C to -20 C. When it gets so cold, the windows in our house gets ice crystals on them. Today I decided to take some pictures of the windows in the kitchen, mum’s bedroom and the balcony door. They do look quite beautiful. First the kitchen window:
Here’s from mum’s bedroom:
And finally the balcony door, which is completely ice!
You can’t look through the door! Sometimes, if it has been very cold for longer periods of time, you will not be able to open the balcony door at all.
Weird, but the living room window has no ice crystals at all. And my window has only a little amount.
We might throw out the Christmas tree later today. I will for sure put away my Christmas decorations that I have in the room.
