Life besides the Melody Festival

Phew! After months of writing about the Swedish Melody Festival, I'm finally back to writing about... well, stuff. Believe it or not, but the Melody Festival isn't the only thing that has occupied my life since February. Let's see what's worth mentioning...

I've had a friend from Sweden visiting. It's always nice to have visitors from "home". It's such a strange sensation, seeing someone in a place where you normally would never meet. But after the initial acclimatization it's like they've never been living anywhere else except in your sofa.

Before the Sweden visit my husband and I held a "Pilot Festival". We watched 10 different pilot episodes we've never seen before (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Six Feet Under, Dead Like Me, Glee, Dr. Who, Pushing Daisies, Cosby, Breaking Bad, M.A.S.H and Jersey Shore). They were all interesting in their different ways, but Jersey Shore scared the bejesus out of me! The only series that really stuck with me was "Buffy, The Vampire Slayer". I know I'm about 1,5 decades too late, but I've seen the first two seasons now and I really like it! No surprise really, considering I really like Joss Whedon's work (the write/director) such as Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and Firefly (he also co-wrote Toy Story). Also, David Boreanaz adds to the likability of the series.

For those of you who live somewhere around San Francisco, I really want to recommend a musical, "Party of 2 - The mating Musical". If you can, go see it! You won't regret it! The stage is super intimate and the entire ensamble consist of only two actors and a piano player. Go with a friend, a boyfriend/girlfriend, a spouse or go by yourself. If you've ever been in a relationship, you hare guaranteed to get a good laugh!

What else has happened since February... I've had my first Chicago style deep dish pizza. I had two slices and that was all I needed for the entire day! The pizza was insane. Delicious, but insane. I can't even remember last time I was that stuffed. I've also tried Scrap-booking for the very first time. Now I can remove yet another skill from my "Potential Skills list". I bet you can become good at it, but I'm definitely not a natural talent.

Else from that, life has continued its course. Spring is apparently approaching, even though the rain makes everything look like fall. There are a handful of really interesting things happening in the near future, but more on that when time comes.
