The Drink is Anton’s Elixir: Jordgubbe och Lime. That is alcoholic version of the previous soft drink. And it is pretty nice, very much like a strawberry mixer of some sort. I like the soft drink even better, though. Jukka feels the same, it's a nice little alcomaholic beverage, but the soda is better.
Few years back when studios began to have their own streaming services, I remember thinking that that we obviously need to decide which services we want. Or game the system taking different services for a month or two and then cancel them. Yeah, right. We now have Netflix, Disney, Amazon Prime, Apple and HBO Max. Obviously we have too much money because we haven’t bothered with switching between them. It is not a long-term solution, though. All services have their flag-ship series, and things are only getting worse: STD (Star Trek Discovery) will be on Paramount’s own streaming service. It is all very annoying for a consumer.
At least we have lots to watch during the holidays. Also, a new TV to watch from. Our previous started to glitch and it had never worked properly as a smart TV so it was downgraded to a screen to be used at the cottage. The new one is teeny weeny bit bigger, and I do have to say that this 50” looks pretty huge in our large living room. It boggles the mind that 55” seems to be the “normal” size for a telly now. How big are people's rooms? So far some hassle to set it up, we’ll se how this inbuilt chromecast-thing works. So far my phone and TV don’t really talk to each other and neither does my iPad.
But at least we are now equipped to watch all the new stuff on our subscription services. And of course the obligatory Christmas time LoTR the extended cut marathon. With the extras.
