With not much vocal activities right now (no choir rehearsals, no festival organization and administration, etc.) there's lots of time to watch movies in the evenings. I can recommend V for Vendetta, The Prestige, The Wedding Planner and The Holiday. The first two are really great if you love original, unexpected plots and the last two movies are more 'girls only' and should be watched with a friend and lots of M&M's.

The only bad thing about this week is that I can't go to Europa Cantat and I'll miss Rajaton.... :(

But I'm looking forward to Ice Age 3, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and G-Force!

After work, I was waiting for him at the end of our street, and there he was:
