I'm watching "Good Bye, Lenin!" (2003).

A son and daughter perform a deception that the communist DDR is continuing in 1989/90, in an attempt to prevent their deeply socialist mother from suffering another heart attack.

A breakthrough performance by Daniel Brühl.

Absolutely superb film. Highly recommended.

Yeah, but, the "relatively bland" courgetti is a whole lot more tasty than (almost) tasteless spaghetti. Plus, I cook it in a lot of butter.

@Luke
I hope everything will be OK, and he makes a speedie recovery.

@tkenben
Me too. If I know that I will be some distance from other people it makes no sense to wear a mask. I have been in the situation where I had to wear a mask for extended periods (when working, for example), and it does become tiresome.

I do wonder if mask wearing will continue when the pandemic is over. It seems to be commonplace in Asia, but, not in Europe.

@gemlog
You have "dreich" correct. In the sense of weather, it is a grey, overcast day, with persistent rain. We have had a few of these days, too.

I saw about 50 people wandering about outside, with their face masks on. Unusual to see so many people with masks outside. Then I realised they were all tourists from the same coach party. I presume, they had to wear masks all the time. Must get tiring.

O my Luve is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.

So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry.

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only luve!
And fare thee weel awhile!

@stannard
Thanks!

I used to live around the corner from MacSween's of Edinburgh, one of the most famous haggis producers. Their haggis is great.

@parasurv
I liked V, too. I'm not a fan of graphic novels. However, I do like the film adaptions for V and 300.

Karl Urban was also good in the second Bourne movie.

@stannard
Shouldn't that be Ayr Fried Potatoes? 😉

Looks good.

At the end of the film I'm watching, the Westminster Parliament building is blown-up.

That scene always brings a tear to my eye,

@gemlog
No. Bad planning, or rather, no planning, at all. Haggis next week.

@Bella @stannard
I forgot to buy haggis, too. Dinner for to-night is made, already. I'll get some haggis for next week.

won't be seeing her haggis, either. :blob_cry:
