The Friday Five for 10 March 2023 – The Oscars

Answers to today’s questions at [community profile] thefridayfive 

1. Do you plan to watch the Oscars broadcast this Sunday?

Nope. The broadcast is on in the middle of the night in my time zone and I don’t care enough/too sickly to stay up literally until the morning. (Unless I have insomnia that night – then I may watch if I remember it’s on.) I’ll watch some clips later on if anything interesting happens!

2. Have you seen many of this year’s Oscar-nominated films?

I haven’t seen any of them. Everything Everywhere All at Once is on my list of things-to-watch-sooner-rather-than-later because Michelle Yeoh and the genre but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

3. Which movie is your pick for Best Picture?

I’ve no idea! The only one I know something about is Everything Everywhere All at Once, and can probably sort of guess about Top Gun: Maverick (if it’s anything like the original and a typical Tom Cruise fare) and Avatar: The Way of Water (again, if it’s anything like the original). The others I’ve only heard the name of but don’t know anything about them.

4. What are some of your other picks to win Oscars?

I hope Brendan Fraser wins Best Actor because he’s been really great in all the recent roles I’ve seen him in. And either Michelle Yeoh or Cate Blanchett Best Actress just because those two are wonderful actresses I’m quite familiar with who always turn in an amazing performance.

5. What is your favorite movie of all time?

The first thing that pops into my head whenever this question is asked is The Last Of The Mohicans, followed immediately by The Piano. Although I really don’t have just one favorite movie of all time – more like a favorite movie in a genre.

Jo’s Daily Questions – January 1-16, 2023

Jo over at Dreamwidth put together a list of daily questions for 2023 again :mrgreen: Here’s my answers to January 1 – 16 guestions.


1 – Global Family Day: How do you define family?

By how close we are. Only my Mom is my family. My Mom’s SO who she lives with, is a relative of mine in my mind.

2 – World Introvert Day: Do you consider yourself an introvert, an extrovert, or something in between?

I’m in between, but lean very much towards introvert. I need my alone time, and always have.

3 – Women Rock! Day: From the Supremes to Janis Joplin to Tori Amos to Billie Eilish, women have made their mark in the world of music. If you were putting together an all-female play list, list five performers who would absolutely have to be on it.

Sade, Ofra Haza, Sarah Brightman, Caro Emerald and Sarah McLachlan.

4 – World Hypnotism Day: Have you ever been hypnotised? If so, how was the experience?


5 – Whipped Cream Day: Do you like whipped cream? Have you ever made whipped cream from scratch?

Oh yes! I love whipped cream! I always make it from scratch – ready whipped cream isn’t much of a thing here. There’s only 1 or two Brand’s ready whipped cream sold here, and not in all groceries. You can’t use it for decorating cakes or anything because it melts in about 5 minutes. Occasionally I buy one bottle to use with “köyhät ritarit” (poor knights/French toast, I think?) along with strawberry or apple jam. But whipped cream layer cake is my favorite.

Jo’s Daily Questions – December 17-31, 2022

The second half of half of Jo’s daily December questions!


17. What do you like most about your family?

That my Mom gets me the way no one else does. When I forget words she always knows what I mean, and vice versa. She knows me like no one else.

18. December 18 is “Bake Cookies Day”. Do you have a favourite cookie recipe? Care to share?

I rarely bake cookies. The only cookies I make with some sort of regularity, as in a couple of times in a couple of years (LOL) are kaurapitsit. This is one recipe that I’ve used but I really have no favorite. The fewer the ingredients the better the kaurapitsit. We had a recipe I loved when I was a kid, but it doesn’t make them anymore like it used to – either the products have changed, or I’ve forgotten how. Either is possible! But really, I think the kaurahiutale (oat something) has change since the 1980s and as the result kaurapitsit don’t come out anymore like when I was a kid. They need to come out very thin, much thinner and more like lace than in the picture above to be how I like them. Continue reading Jo’s Daily Questions – December 17-31, 2022

Continuing Server Problems – Solved

Because kept having problems, I was moved to a new server. Once the move was complete, I needed to update the nameservers. DNS propagation can take up to 72 hours to propagate worldwide, although it typically takes a few hours. If you’re reading this, it means you’re loading the site from the new server and everything should be working normally now!
