I have had a really nice weekend. Yesterday me and Chris R. teamed up with Lynn and Chris A. to go to the movies. We saw It's Complicated, and it made me realise that sometimes it is good to see a film just for some laughs and wonderful company. We grabbed some pizza afterwards, and decided to make an efficient 20-minute visit to our local Salvation Army. I found a couple really cool things, and since green tags were 50% off, I ended up spending less than $20 for six items. Chris taught me how to play backgammon in the evening, (which was very enjoyable, with a cup of tea) before we watched Sleepy Hollow on tv. Today I felt that I just had to wear some of my new treasures - the orange jumper and the navyblue polka-dot skirt were newly fresh and ready to wear from the laundry this morning.
Today has been a perfectly crispy winter day; not too cold, wonderfully bright and sunny. Me and Chris decided to go see another film, and picked A Single Man, which I have been dying to see for a while now. Before we left the house, Chris dared me to wear a crazy Peruvian hat he gave me in November - I hadn't worn it yet because it is rather bold and, well, like I said, crazy. Of course I went for it. As Chris realised that I was actually going to wear it in public, he looked at me, sighed deeply and said: "oh, my crazy Finnish wife." Yes, I am.
A Single Man was probably the most touching, hearth-breaking and beautifully shot film about sense of loss, identity and grief I have ever seen. Colin Firth and Julianne Moore were astounding. Go see it!
