Tuesday again. It seems like time is flying. If it isn’t the Tuesday English entry; it is the Friday themed ”Show and Tell”. The weeks fly…
Where does time go?
I don’t understand where the fall went. One day the leaves were green, the next they were all on the ground. Where did all the beautiful fall colors go? They seem to have passed me by this year.
Now the sky is fairly gray; all the leaves are gone and the weather is chilly. If you’ve been following my blog you know that I don’t mind said weather the slightest bit…
Lots of vampires around right now…
Another one of my friends has watched “Let the Right One In”---She loved it!! And guys, it is probably the best vampire movie around. If you have a chance; GO SEE it!! It is so much more than a vampire story. It is a story about deep friendship, and love, and bullies and tweens.
Keep in mind that it is written by a school mate of mine, and that everything takes place in the suburb where I went to school, Blackeberg.
The next vampire movie in waiting is “Twilight”. I have not read the (wildly popular) books, and I am not dying to read them either. They’re not up my alley, so to speak. If it has some kind of hysterical Harry Potter effect to it … then no, I have zero interest. Easy as that.
BUT, it is written for teenagers, and Karolina LOVED the first book. She wants to go see the movie as soon as it gets out. We’ll see about that since we are heading up to our BELOVED New York City on Friday! NYC!! Here we come!!
I cannot wait!
“Twilight”, on the other hand, has to wait. I’ll watch it with Karolina at some point, but it can wait.
I feel bad for my American readers using Google Translate on my Swedish posts during the week. Poor you! I know a few of you use it on an almost daily basis. That has got to be the worst translating service ever! When I read what I wrote in Swedish translated into English, it is a PURE joke. It is the worst of the worst both word-wise and grammar-wise…
I sound like a moron in those posts, hahaha!!
No, Google…get a grip, or close down your translation service.
If you are very lucky you can sort of figure out what my posts are about…But it takes patience…
And Christmas is coming…And it is approaching FAST! I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is in LESS than two weeks!
I have not bought a single gift yet. Nor will I buy a heck of a lot either. In my Swedish family we draw names so each adult buys a present for another adult. It works great. All the kids get presents; they do not partake in the lottery.
In my American family, I think we are foregoing Christmas gifts for the adults this year. And that is fine. Just fine. It makes it easier in so many ways. Yes, we’ll buy something for all the kids in the family, of course.
How about you? What is the tradition in your family when it comes to gift giving? And how ‘bout this year? Are you buying a lot of gifts? Or, are you cutting back?
Today I am off to see a new (for me), and widely popular hair dresser. It took me over two months to get an appointment with her! And today’s the day! I am so CURIOUS what she will do with my hair. I have great expectations and hope I will not be disappointed. I might be, I know…
Have a great Tuesday!
