Sari wrote day Thirteen, but it seems to have disappeared into the interwebs. Or Jolyon, my W8. She'll undoubtably will dig it up at some point. There's the annual Dog Show at Maneesi this weekend, so she is busy with Mogens and the rest of the MyHeels family.
Ginger. I love me some ginger. Today we'll try out Stone's Ginger Joe, which is not beer, but ginger beer. Bad idea? Possibly. We'll see.
Ah, intoxicating aroma of sweet gingerinees!
Yummy! This is delicious! Not beer, nothing of the sort. Very gingery, probably very much essence of Esomething, but close enough as a drink. Like Ginger Ale, but more malty?, heavier and feistier. Ginger lingers long and lovingly on the palate. It's a mead! I better buy more of this!
You know what's also ginger? Yes, Geri is, but what else?
Irish. And as Irish TV-series go, I'm not an expert. But I know one and it is GREAT! Moone Boy is an Irish sitcom of a boy, who has an imaginary tig... friend, who is not only the least capable imaginary friend you can imagine, but also more than willing to push young master Martin into stunningly ridiculous schemes.
This is a laidback version of Calvin & Hobbes if there ever was one. Surreal, heart warming and sweet. Writer, producer and one of the main actors Chris O'Dowd (from IT-Crowd and FM and various other British comedies) is the imaginary Seán and according to him, Moone Boy takes lot of its building blocks from his own childhood in the late 80's Irish small town life.
Not for easy laughs, but to all of us, who like to think while watching comedy. And be child-like. And/or fantastically inclined. Second season was ordered straight after the first one was shown and to make it absolutely certain, that the network was behild the show, they ordered the 3rd season while the second one was still being written! Halai!
I got to buy more of Ginger Joe!
