Finally we were able to sleep well last night. First night for a while.. Dogs have had their disagreemens on which one sleps on what part of and which blanket.. I’ve been yelling at them about 3-4 times a night. Yes, yelling. When I’ve been woken up right middle of the deepest sleep, I’m not that happy camper.. Sorry, that’s just how it is.. 😉
Yesterday I went to Jumbo. It was insane! Now that they’ve opened the new part of the mall, people are going insane! It’s filled with people hauling shopping bags twice their own body weight!! Really! 😮 It was almost impossible to get parking space. Even though there’s 4600 spots, EVERY parking hall/section was blinking red FULL sign.. I finally parked at the employee parking (we have the licence in my car!) ..
Anyway, the morning was interesting yesterday. I was going to buy new jack, since the old one didn’t fit under my car (jack: 13,5cm high and car 9cm low..) because I NEED to get winter tires under the car as long as it’s not snowing again. I haven’t been driving for a while and that combined to the cold, warm and wet, freezing cold, warm and wet weather changes plus my old car battery.. ..you know where I’m going.. ..CAR DIDN’T START!! Luckily my mom and his “dude” were coming to the Jumbo and drove past our place. I got some juice from their car. Yes, I have cables. I have cables, towing rope, small tool box, snow chains, shovel, first-aid kit, working gloes. etc in my trunk. Have had for years. Since I have had all these with me, I haven’t needed any of them until now. Not even to help someone else. So, I’ll have this arsenal with me as long as I have a car.
But, I never found a jack that’ll fit under my car. The shop that used to have low profile jacks had sold them out and weren’t able to order more since they couldn’t find the company that imported them. Old importer had gone bancrupt. Sucks..
Today it’s been gray all day. I was lazy and went to McDonalds for a breakfast at 11.30am.. Heh, my breakfast was Quarter Pounder meal and two cheese burgers.. I will not need any more food until supper.. lol While I was eating, I started watching Korean thriller called “Memories of Murder“, I’m still watching it. (Yes, I can do that and write rambling thoughts). Lately I’ve been really into these Korean movies, great horror and thrillers! Bit different than usual european or Hollywood flicks. Not necessarily happy or fair endings. Great stories and they really grab you.
Also Korean historical spectacles are great! Not kungfu, but huge fighting scenes and lots of feeling. Gives me goose bumps, they’re that good!
I am a film freak, I have to admit that. Now that I’ve gotten older, I have replaced quantity with quality. I don’t watch 5-7 movies a week but just couple a week. Sometimes none.. I have been getting back to literature which takes sometimes lot more time than movies.. Movie takes about two hours of your time, but good book can take one day if you can’t put it aside for a while..
Anyway, I’ll continue the movie and maybe can come up something to post later.

I just went crazy at home with my camera, again.. Check out the result at Flickr.
I’ve really got into the macro and closeups. It’s just a phase, don’t worry. Maybe I even learn something from this all. I’ll be posting some outdoor pictures as soon as I remember to take a camera with me when out with the dogs.. 🙂
