  1. It took me a while but now I kind of appreciate Mika's decision to cancel his tour instead of just postponing it. Last year I bought a ticket for a concert that should have took place in March 2020. Today I've realized that the concert was postponed again from March 2021 to March 2022. It feels ridiculous and even though I understand the company, I would prefer a cancellation at this point. :sad:

  2. Today I got the I Love Beirut T-shirt! :cheer:

    I've ordered small but it's the biggest small size I've ever seen... :teehee:

    But that's fine. Better than too small. :wink2:

      :cheer: @giraffeandy good... I don't have mine, they don't want me to buy the t shirt.. but i watch the concert 

       

  3. SOS, please, are there any fans who ordered the I Love Beirut T-shirt from https://shop.virginemi.com/mika/?

    I've paid for it on the 11. 9. I didn't receive it until now. Today the store charged me AGAIN. They charged the amount from my credit card today at night. I've already paid for the T-shirt and I didn't even get a shipping confirmation and now I have to pay once more? Does that happen to anybody else?

      @silver I've checked my bank account again and it seems that they actually cancelled the payment from September and they charged it today. But I haven't noticed back then because in September, we were buying quite a lot of things... However, they could at least inform the customers that they will charge them later because I was sure I've already paid in September.

      Well, at least they have not charged you twice. Quite a lot of companies take your payment details but only actually charge you when they despatch the goods.  Maybe the September charge was their error and they refunded when they realised it.  But I agree, they could have let you know what was happening.

      @silver I've already ordered there once and back then I've paid immediately even though it still took a few days till the order has been dispatched... They probably realized they won't have the T-shirts in stock for a while so they decided to charge the money later but it would be nice to let me know because once I've got the payment confirmation and I've seen the amount on my bank account as blocked, I haven't checked afterwards if the payment was made for real. I know booking.com does that sometimes when they want to check if the client has enough money to pay the stay but I've never experienced that with a store.

  4. I would prefer ballerinas... :fisch:

    It's so much fun! 

  6. Youtube just recommended to me this video I've seen years ago because the algorithm knows I need a good laugh right now... :lol3:

     

     

  7. I've just heard this song on the radio and had to think of Mika's great cover... 

     

     

  8. Please vote, I hope I won't be the only one who likes the Italian song better... :biggrin2:

      I prefer the Italian song too! :thumb_yello:

      My cancelled flight for tomorrow has been alrady refunded. At least no voucher for this one.

      @Anna Ko Kolkowska I was going to take a bus or a train (but the bus was probably the cheapest option). However, I waited till May for the new schedule so then I didn't buy the ticket anymore. I just had to cancel my reservation for the B&B on booking.com but I didn't pay anything in advance. 

  10. After hearing Dear Jealousy at Sephora once and Ice Cream at Zara a couple of months ago, today I've heard Tomorrow at Peek&Cloppenburg... I guess I should go shopping more often. :teehee: Fun fact: the last two times this happened to me I was wearing the tote bag from the Revelation Tour. 

    1. Paoletta

      Paoletta

      woow.. also me have a tote bag from revelation tour

  11. Don't forget social distancing! (I've seen it on FB with Sherlock and decided to make a Mika version...)

  12. Challenge of the day: How many Mika CDs (including bonus CDs, live CDs etc.) can you play in one day? :biggrin2:

    1. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      It seems that not so many as I thought because I keep playing some songs on repeat... 

    2. Starlight

      Starlight

      It seems to be quite a challenge. :naughty:

  13. This headline made my day:

     

    'This is Tim's fault': Triathlete kicked out of virtual race after husband trips over cord :lmfao:

  16. Hi, maybe you could help me with my brainstorming. It's my best friend's birthday in 3 weeks. It's already clear I won't be able to see her. Now I'm thinking about a gift. There are actually only two possibilities - either a "digital" gift or something I can order online and send to her address. A digital gift could be a voucher for example, one that I could buy or I was thinking of a list of things we could do together afterwards and I would invite her (café, ice cream, cinema etc.). That would be nice, on the other hand who knows when it will be possible to realize these plans and maybe I should think of a gift she can enjoy right now in the time of her birthday and not in a few weeks or months... It would be great if I could give her a "personalised" gift, I usually put together things I bought and even something handmade but I don't want to risk going to the post office now so if I send her something, it has to be a thing I can order and she will receive it from the shop directly. What do you think is the best idea? A "physical" surprise or a "digital" gift with a voucher? Or maybe a mixture of both options? Thanks for your ideas!

    1. Irem Aytepe

      Irem Aytepe

      You don't have to give physical gift atm. It can be dangerous but I prefer digital.

      You can make a video of your and your friend's picture with your song? Your and her/him song? It can be nice. 

      If you want cinema for that day, you can make voicecall and start a movie same time. You can talk about the movie and you can watch together. I always do this with my friend when we want to watch serie together.

    2. silver

      silver

      Well the easy thing to do would be a voucher for something like Amazon, so she could get whatever she liked.  Do you have any websites like Etsy, where you can order craft gifts and jewellery online and get sent direct to her? Actually getting a present might be a nice surprise in these times.

      2 ideas:

      - you can ask other friends to record short wishes for your bday firend and then put all recordings together 

      - in Poland there is a webside which prepare videos with celebrities or sportsmen wishing ppl happy birthday. You send them pictures and your wishes and they preparing a video. You pay for this but the money goes to charity company. My friend was in heaven seeing her fave footballer wishing her happy birthday. Don't know if you have something similar in Czech?

  17. Today I had a terrible nightmare... One of those that feels so real! :tears: It was about Mika being on an event with about 50 other famous people on a boat. Then the boat got lost and people were assuming it sank for some reason. I felt so miserable in the dream, I even cried, then I woke up and was so relieved it's not true but I think I will need a while till I get rid of that bad feeling... Luckily Mika won't be on a boat anytime soon.

      @Starlight Yes, I have no idea why my brain came up with such a horrible story, I usually have rather good or neutral dreams thanks god! But I guess maybe the whole situation now produce some negative feelings that your brain proceeds at night... I don't know but it was by far the worst nightmare I had lately, I hope it was the last one too.

    3. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      @Mikasister Yeah, the reality is a nightmare already...

       

      Even though it's hard, I think it's a good idea, it's better to be safe than sorry...

       

      Btw, the night before I had a dream I made it to Mallorca (I should have spent two weeks in July over there) but I had to take a bus, a boat, a train and I think one another vehicle because the planes didn't fly... The virus was still a topic but it wasn't as bad anymore. Not the greatest dream ever but at least much better than the one I dreamed tonight... 

    4. Starlight

      Starlight

      @giraffeandy That's true... all that is happening now is a nightmare...

      @Mikasister A good idea... safety is so important at the moment...

  18. This is so heartwarming... And there are not enough nice news in these times.

      I feel like you @giraffeandy I dont see the light at the end of the tunnel.

       

      The things in Spain are getting worse every day with 15.000 infected and moore than 700 dead, and they say the hardest is yet to come.:tears: In Catalonia where I live there're almost 3000 infected and 55 dead. We have to be locked up at home and go out just to buy food. I have to be careful with mom because is an old person. Moreover, Mika doesnt help me. It seems that for him only France and Italy are suffering. Today I wanted to cry. :tears: Right now, I'm down. Tomorrow I do not know but now, I regret having bought  tickets for this summer. Right now I'm sad and annoyed. 

       

      When the year started, 2020 seemed nice to me and now all this. :sad::sad:
       

    4. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      @Mikasister Exactly, I was so positive about 2020, Mika on tour, so many good things coming and now this... :emot-sad: It's so unreal, I feel like I have to wake up one day from this nightmare but I won't... And it's getting worse. I'm so sorry for Spain and Italy, this summer I was going to have a holiday with my family on Mallorca and also planning to go to Verona to see Mika and now it breaks my heart what's happening in both countries I love... 

  20. Even though it's a bit sad, it's also very rare to see Prague without tourists so I kind of appreciate some of these pictures... https://www.seznamzpravy.cz/clanek/par-minut-do-karanteny-cele-zeme-tak-to-vypadalo-v-centru-prahy-93271?seq-no=1&dop-ab-variant=&source=clanky-home

      yes..more essential. BUT.

  21. As the schools are closed in many countries, let's begin with a lesson of geography... :biggrin2:

      Btw, I also noticed that some countries in the Central Asia are missing like Kazakhstan, I guess they were still part of Russia back then so also don't forget about these, kids! :naughty:

      You want to dance? Here you can dance learning how to make a Trucker's Hitch 

       

      :biggrin2:

      These guys are so crazy. They can sing any text they want!  And they speak so many languages - it makes think of Mika :mfr_lol:

       

       

  22. Today I had a dream. I got an email from a concert promoter with a link. And on the website I found out that there will be a concert of Mika in my country. But the weird thing was that the concert wasn't in Prague but in Pardubice... Which is strange because even though it's one of the bigger cities here (the 10th biggest apparently), it's still quite small for such a concert. And there's no music festival and I've actually never been there. So I guess this dream won't come true... :naughty: But it was a nice feeling for a moment.

    1. Lilyen

      hm, I would be happy for a concert in Szeged... hmhm ❤️ nice dream!

  23. I can't see this book without hearing Mika sing... :fisch:

      @giraffeandy no problem :hug: it's really hard without hearing the voice of someone. :wink2:

  24. Thinking of all the Italian fans here. I don't know how many of you live in or near the affected area but as long as it's possible, try to stay high not low... Hope you and your families are safe! Wish you health. :pray: Of course that applies to everybody who lives in a country that is affected (at this point I think most of us do...).
