And so cristmas is over for now...

It goes faster and faster every year! And I`m gonna be really sentimental now and say that my only real christmas wish every year is as simple as this... I wish for that old christmassy feeling to return to me again! The counting-down for christmas eve, the exitment, the toture it was waiting for the presents! This year I didnt even blink before it was all over. But its still nice... beeing with the family and to see the joy in my nieces and nephews faces. A great reminder of how it used to be... :)
Anyway, while I`ve been struggling to accept the fact that I`m growing up, I`ve still been enjoying the holiday! I got to catch up on some sleep!! YAY! And I got to hang around with my family and some friends, go to the movies etc etc....

My sister and I went to see The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas today. Its based on the book ny John Boyne. If you havent seen it yet, GO!!! I wont say anything else about it, expet... bring a tissue!!
Or even better... read the book first!!



And another great movie I saw just before christmas is the norwegian movie Max Manus. It has to be the best norwegian movie I have ever seen!! Its a true story that happened in Norway during WW2. Norwegian or not norwegian, you should see it!

And I say don't go. Who did you see the pajamas movie with? I am glad you liked it cause I cried for 3 days after watching that movie. I couldn't get the images out of my head. I say bring a whole tissue box with you and not just one tissue. I didn't just tear up, I cried!!!!!!!!! Like bawling crying. It's a horrible way for children to well you know, I mustn't reveal. IT was so depressing.

Hehe, I'm quite proud that I was the one who told Linda about the book long time ago. Very alarming story. I'll see the movie soon.

Max Manus is THE best Norwegian movie ever! I saw it with three other Hamar brothers. Gå hem mann!
I couldn't think properly 'till Christmas eve.

I guess I can only say Thank you to that! I love that book! I got it for x-mas and later I forced all my sisters and my mom to read it. Its a very strong book....
