Think I just saw my favourite Christmas movie. If you missed out on this Finnish movie, don’t wait watch it now.
On Christmas Eve in Finland, Santa Claus is unearthed in an archaeological dig. Soon after, children start disappearing, leading a boy and his father to capture Santa and, with the help of fellow hunters, they look to sell him back to the corporation that sponsored the dig. And then there’s Santa’s elves, who are determined to free their leader…
Hope you all have a great day either finishing off the Christmas shopping or wondering if you should start it. I’m in the later stage but got sidetracked when I made the mistake of going to my local pub instead.
You know it’s your local pub when you have got a nickname or that in the style of Cheers they at least know who you are. My nickname is the swede, which makes sense. Would hate them if they called me slightly bald guy 🙂
But for all the pubs I do love the Irish ones the best, they have the most weird, oddish but oh so friendly people usually in the pubs.
On my very first trip to London as a 17 year old I went to the pub and saw that it was a England-Ireland game on and of course I hadn’t checked what pub I was in but started cheering for England since I was a visitor in the country and wanted to fit in unfortunately I was in an Irish pub. The pub went oh so quiet and everyone turned to me. As an tourist and all alone it was very discomforting. 🙂 But to their credit they explained my error and bought me a beer instead of beating me to a pulp. Since then I just had a big fondness for the Irish. Anyway, getting off my ass now to do that dastardly shopping.
Ps. And no idea how I found this video on YouTube but I do know that I started looking for the Cheers intro song and after a few clicks got this one. Anyway it’s the best roast speech I ever seen.

Ho Ho Ho!
Love this video… Great tongue in cheek
Happy 1st of advent, only 3 more to go and then it’s Christmas time. Have baked my gingerbread men and drinking the gluewine. Might have been a mistake to start with gluewine while baking. They look slightly more black than they should. Ah well, more gluewine and no one will notice. Had to travel far this year to get my Swedish gluewine. IKEA has some bastard version of Swedish gluewine but they sold out so now after 4 shops around London I finally found my Blossa Swedish Glogg.
Have a great Sunday all.
I hope you all have a great weekend, even if you don’t celebrate xmas, just enjoy… I will be in Norway now to have a great time (one can hope..) with my family there. So food, drinks and just laughter for 1 week. Can’t get any better than that…
