... or, in other words, Christmas is approaching seriously. I've baked the last batch of cookies last night - now I've 12 different sorts and done with baking for Christmas. It's a really handy thing, these German recepies: you can do your cooking weeks before the actual feast and have time for the more pressing tasks right before Christmas.
Also, Christmas prezzies are snowing in (pardon the pun; looks out of the window warily at the steady snowfall). First came Merlin
's Series Three, Part one, courtesy of the wonderful and generous the_wild_iris
. Followed by rcfinch
's present, a movie titled The Discovery of Heaven
. I never heard of it before, but the summary sounds intriguing. Will watch it when I'm a tiny bit less brain-dead. Then, in this very morning, shiny-sparkly SF magazines arrived, sent by my good friend lhun_dweller
. Since I have nothing domestic more to do for the rest of the day, I'll spread out on the sofa and indulge myself. *g*
Tomorrow, we're going to Vienna with a few colleagues. Hopefully, the weather will co-operate, at least to a certain extent, as Mum is coming with us, of course. We haven't seen the Vienna Christmas Markets for many days, I hope it will be fun. Weather-wise, I mean. It will
be fun in any other aspect.
Oh, and have I mentioned that it's snowing? I hope atmospheric disturbances won't hinder me in watching Sherlock Holmes
on Tele5 tonight. It would be the first time that I'd see Gareth David-Lloyd in any other role than Torchwood's enigmatic Ianto Jones; I'm very curious what he's like as Dr. Watson.Edit:
I gave up on the Sherlock Holmes movie after the first hour. It was boring; plus, the background music was so loud I could only understand every tenth word of whatever dialogue was doing on. Very crappy dubbing, I'd say.
GDL has an interesting look with wavy, collar-length hair. But a moustache isn't really his thing, IMO.
