Some month ago or so I got a hold of “Let the right one” written by Johan Ajvide Lindqvist and immediately got hooked on the book. When I had finished reading the book I found myself feeling sad over that I had finished it and couldn’t look forward to reading it anymore.
The story really catches you and I really like it, not only because it’s a “weird” story but also because I find the book very well written.
Anyways, today I saw the movie that was made after the book. I was a little nervous cause I didn’t want to see the book butchered and I didn’t want to get as disappointed as I usually do. The movie was pretty good I would say, the filming and environments are well done and the story is followed pretty accurately. The casting was good as well, I think that they found really good actors for both Eli, Oskar and Håkan (lets not forget Håkan)
I gotta say though, the movie is good but it does not compare to the book. If one wants to get the whole story, to get a more intense feeling for the characters they should read the book. But then again, I’ve never encountered a movie that was better than the book it’s based on.
So, to wrap this up, really good movie but even better book. Watch the movie, but read the book first.
Woke up with a headache today, been trying to treat myself the whole day and right now it just lingers in my head.
I’ve been taking a pill, been using the heated wheat bag and tried to massage the muscles that tenses up and causes it all. It’s hard to be relaxed when it hurts instead of just tensing up and making it worse. I laid down in bed, on Levs side, and tried to relax for a while, I think it worked cause I fell asleep
Other than that stupid headache I’m a good mood. No more new snow over here and the on that is left is melting slowly. The sun is shining and I opened the door to the balcony today so that Little Lev could play out there, and I could leave it open without getting too cold.
Oh yeah, it’s also the day where you eat semlor on over here in Sweden and since it’s been probably around 10 to 15 years since I had one of those I bought us each one. During Levs first time in Sweden he liked them a lot, so I figured that I’ll treat him to one and at the same see if I like them (I really don’t know if I do or don’t)
08:50 am over here, seems like it’s only me and the guy plowing the housing area that is awake. Lev, Little Lev and my girls (the degus) are still sleeping. I’ve been up since 07:30 am and are now about to start climbing the walls here, so bored.
Yesterday was fun, I departed early in the day and spent the rest of it at my parents place. Managed to squeeze in a small shopping tour and then a 1½ walk in the snow with the dog that ended with my sister falling and looking really funny, lol. Jacke really loves to play in the snow and it was so much fun.
Not funny was the look he had on his face when we left the place, he looked to miserable and I was feeling terrible for leaving him alone. I was going home to my small family and my sister was attending some dinner and party with her friends.
This morning I woke up and saw a text message on my phone, my sister said that she spent the night at my parents place. I felt relieved as that meant that she got there safely after her dinner and party plans (it snowed a lot last night) and that the dog feels a bit better.
Today I’m a bit cranky as it snowed more last night. I know that I have been praising the snow in the past but I have now reached a point where it’s enough for me and I rather have spring, some sun and green grass. Not to mention not having to put on tons of clothes just to take a quick walk somewhere.
Yesterday I managed to not leave the building but since we’re running low on food I guess I have to put that ton of clothes on and try and make to the car so I can drive to the grocery store. Blah, and the car, it’s gonna be covered in snow and it wouldn’t surprise me the slightest if I have to scrape ice of the windows as well. Damn, I need to relocate to a warmer place.
Other than snow not much more is going over here right now. I seem to be the only one awake, Lev is sleeping and Little Lev is being a copycat and just chillin too. That bunny has to do everything that Lev does.
I let him out of his cage with the hope that he would wake Lev up, what does he do but not to just continue to sleep. Evil bunny.
Oh yeah, about 2 month until our trip. Can’t wait.
About 30 min car ride from where we live there’s this zoo with Scandinavian animals that I like a lot. Me and Lev went twice last year and are planning for some more trips there this year.
Anyway, gotta really happy cause I read in the news that the Brown Bear at the park has got 3 little cubs this winter Can’t wait until they come out of their winter nest and the public can see them.
We are NOT on good terms right now…
I was giving him a treat in his cage when he all of the sudden bit me. My thumb started bleeding and it hurt like fuck. Now I got a band aid with Simba from the Lion King on my thumb (didn’t have any big Hello Kitty band aids left) and I’m mad at Little Lev.
