      Oddly I'm feeling better. I don't know if it was the nasal spray or the mint :D Just sleepy and disoriented from lack of sleep.

      I really didn't fancy vodka, the mint was first choice. I still got a bit left, will make a nice hot choccy cuppa with it :)

      I first watched the UK version and loved it, then watched the US version, and to be honest, the UK version has never felt the same anymore :( Usually the UK ones beat the US ones, but this time it's the other way around, at least for me.

    3. Kylie

      Kylie

      I tried watching the US Office the other night, just to give it a go. I'm afraid I found the acting far more forced and unbelievable. With the UK Office, the first time I saw it I actually thought it was a real documentary for a while. I would never have thought that with the US Office.

    4. frankie

      frankie

      I know what you mean about the UK Office first seeming like a real documentary, I too thought it was for real and thought 'good god, the boss can't be serious!!", and the US version doesn't have that quality. But in so many other ways it's superior!

       

  12. Making meatballs all by myself for the first time ever.

      Mince meet, cream crackers and onion. Fry onion, whack cream crackers to tiny bits, put everything in a bowl, do the seasoning and mix. In the oven, 200 degrees for 15 minutes. Done! :)

    3. Eleonora

      Eleonora

      I add some parsley before mixing the meat with other ingredients. It gives a fresh note. Some italians put garlic too.. but meatballs became heavier. Anyway, well done Frankie. :)

  13. Today I'm proud to be Finnish. The petition released only today, to advocate an equal marriage law in Finland, has already received the needed 50,000 signatures and so the petition will be presented to the Finnish parliament this year :)

      Will that be the same as in Norwegian law then Frankie or is it just like civil partnerships?

    4. frankie

      frankie

      People have been able to register their relationships before, but this would be an actual marriage law :)

      I haven't been to Helsinki in a year, and then it was only for a weekend... And I haven't been to a cruise as a single gal in about a decade... :D It's going to be a hoot!

      No, wait, I've been to Estonia as a single gal, but those are only 24 hour cruises. The cruise to Stockholm is a two day event! :)

      I have always liked the following quote by Alan Watts - Thought of it when I read your update - 'The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge in to it, move with it and join the dance.

    4. frankie

      frankie

      It is only now that I've seen your comment, Drislane. That's a great quote :) I'm not easy with change, but I took the plunge and moved with it (and moved! :D) and so far I've enjoyed the dance, and somewhat joined in it, too :D

  19. Still having problems. Hard drive completely bust, there go my pictures and music and all. Well at least I have my Aussie pics, because darling Kylie gave them to me on CDs, dog/cat bless her soul! Hoping to get comp fixed before Xmas. Missing the forum a lot! :(

  20. frankie is going to be ashamed of the Finnish parliament for the next four years. The real true Finns are not anti-everything!

      It was back in September, they only got 5,20 % but that was enough to make it in to the parliament. They have the same issues in Denmark I think. Hopefully I speak for everyone when I say we don't judge a whole country based on the results in one election.

    4. frankie

      frankie

      I just hope they won't ef everything up in the next four years, but will ef up enough to make people see this is not the way to go, this is not how the future should be.

  21. Frankie had a blast in Estonia, it was very pretty, the language is beautiful (and amusing to us Finns), and I had very good company. Spent a bit too much money... Tomorrow Frankie goes to see Korn!!!

      Not really, but I saw both DVDs on sale and because I've been meaning to get the Parenthood DVD and I've always meant to get the whole set of GG I had to get them both :) Unfortunately I couldn't find the fifth season, I still need that and the 7th.
