It's that time again: robins and blackbirds wake us in the early morning with their singing, crocuses sprout, thick bumblebees flying around and finally, finally we've got sunshine :-)
Today, at 6:14 GMT, was the astronomical beginning of spring called spring equinox.
The mouse wishes everyone a wonderful day!

For a long time now, I‘m celebrate winter solstice every year. For me it is one of the 3 big celebration days: summer solstice, birthday and winter solstice. So today, at 6:30 p.m. the sun reached it‘s lowest angle over the horizon. As a consequence, today we will only have 8 hours and 5 minutes sunlight in my country, at least in theory :-) It is the „shortest“ day in the year.

But of course it is cloudy. Nevertheless, we will celebrate tonight, having a nice meal, honey Mead and lots of candles.

I like to take advantage of that special day to share some of my winter impression from last december here, unlike this year it was snowy and everything just looked beautiful :-)

I wish you all a beautiful day :-)

This interview with Zachary Quinto about his upcoming movie „What‘s your number“ was posted from vero244a on september 08 2011 via youtube, but for some reason I saw it for the first time today.
Zachary talks mostly about how brave the female lead Anna Faris is to make such a fool about herself, a quality, which is due to Zach essential for being a good comedian. He thinks that this movie is not a typical romantic comedy, because it is grittier, so maybe it‘s worth watching anyway, even if you are not a fan of this genre?
We‘ll see :-)

A couple of hours ago, Zachary Quinto posted this Associated Press interview via his official Facebook account. It shows a couple of scenes from the Star Trek 2009 promotion tour and Zachary speculates how his character and his relationship with Uhura might evolve in Star Trek 12.


For me, the most interesting part was Zacharys assumption, that Star Trek 12 will be out 4 years later than the last movie, which means 2013. This is the first time I hear this number, although there were speculations before that 2012 might not be possible anymore.

Along with Zachary Quinto as Peter Sullivan you can see his fellow cast embers Kevin Spacey as Sam Rogers, Paul Bettany as Will Emerson, Jeremy Irons as John Tuld, Penn Badgley as Seth Bregman, Simon Baker as Jared Cohen, Demi Moore as Sarah Robertson and the director and writer J.C. Chandor:

Zachary Quinto and his colleagues and friends from Before The Door were on friday, July 21 2011 at the Nerd HQ 2011 LUCID panel in San Diego. This little mini-convention is especially interesting for comic fans and takes place in parallel to larger Comiccon.

Here are 4 clips with a total length of 48 minutes from youtube:










Have fun watching Zachary :-)

Was is just a couple of days ago, that I was celebrating having Microchilla back from the hospital? Well, it should not be that way. When I came home from work on friday evening, poor little chinchilla baby was in a bad shape and I took it and it's mother back to the hospital. Of course they've tied everything they could, but on saturday morning at 9 am I received the call I hoped I would never get: it had passed away.

Poor little thingy. I will miss you and I hope that there is some chinchilla heaven somewhere with tons of fresh grass and many other chinchillas to play and be free. Someday your parents will join you.

Good bye.
