Just a couple of days ago, the tiles in some areas of the Baker Street Tube Station have been changed to advertise the upcoming Sherlock Holmes movie.
For those of you who haven’t heard about the movie, I recommend you watch the trailer. It looks like there will be plenty of action, and for some reason it reminds me more of a James Bond movie rather than a crime/investigation movie.
“Its raining cats and dogs” is one of my favourites English idioms. I haven’t heard it so many times, but non-English speakers are prone to remember it quite well :D.Â Native speakers use “It’s pouring down” or just “It’s pouring!” most of the time, but it’s just not as funny, right?
Nobody I’ve asked knows where it comes from and I still haven’t found an answer (see phrases.org.uk).
By the way, it means raining a lot and it seems it’s raining more today than the whole month of June!
I’m growing fond of musicals and Wicked is probably the best one I’ve been to. It tells the untold story of the witches of Oz: how the wicked witch of the West becomes so wicked and the good witch of the North so good.
All the singers are fantastic, but the main star is simply stunning! The staging, costumes and story were spellbinding.
I enjoyed a lot finding out what had happened before Dorothy came to Oz…
Last Friday we went to see the last Harry PotterÂ´s movie! It is the darkest of the five released movies and I really enjoyed it, though it didnÂ´t stick so much to the book. It forgets about some important parts of “you know what” and it makes difficult to follow the plot. Anyway, I recommend the movie to all of you, specially now that you wonÂ´t see queues as long as the one we had!
To celebrate Bastille Day (French national holiday), we had some special desserts… I know you want me to talk about my project: what am I doing at Google? But sorry, this is the only bad thing.. I cannot tell, it is confidential…
But what I can tell you about is food!! And today desserts have been really awesome! Many different cakes, crÃªpes, hot apple pie… Just have a look 😉
