Winter storm!

currently, it looks like this outside!! the morning started out chilly, but dry, so we went for a run outside (we now ran 45 minutes, of which i am very proud.. :) then we went to eat pancakes; well-deserved, no?). but.... a storm was clearly approaching, the sky was soo dark, and yes, the afternoon started with heavy rain and wind, and in the early evening this turned into snow, covering everything with a little layer!! october has not even ended! apparently, many people are without power (almost 300,000), and a state of emergency has been declared.
perfect weather to stay inside and watch a movie... but the movie we saw was sooo boring, beeehhh...
other movies we recently saw: "real steel". about fighting robots. it was so awful, bad acting, overly sentimental and terribly predictable. in new york we saw "drive", about some guy in car turning into lunatic killing machine, that was awful too and i almost left the cinema before the movie ended (but many people like it a lot, for whatever reason). then we saw "toast" with helena bonham carter; i like her a lot, so that was the main reason we went. the movie was ok, the beginning was funny, the middle was good, but the end was disappointing. i however was obsessed with the lemon meringue pie they make in the movie, and so last week we made such a pie ourselves (recipe).... not bad! we also saw "ides of march", pictured on a billboard in new york, above. that one was really good, george clooney running for president and dirty politics..... (here wikipedia will tell you about the origin of ides of march)
the internet stopped again, so thats it for today....

I heard on the news this morning about the storms and lack of electricity in NE US. What a snow so early! Hope you can cope with it, make a snowman.

i really liked that movie! george clooney is good as a director (the american sucked but i guess it was not his fault)

Bummer about the snow, but good for you with all that running. Cloony is a favorite.
