  1. Update: I finally got the beads on Friday and spent today making one earring, it took me hours but it's finally done... Now I have to start making the second one. :sweatdrop:

  2. I spent over an hour yesterday trying to choose the right colours of beads for my next rainbow project inspired by the Revelation Tour... :teehee: And this is the best I got. The order is on the way! :cheer:

  3. If you're looking for a show to brighten up your days and you do have Netflix, watch Julie and the Phantoms, believe me, you won't regret it! :biggrin2: The series is a bit like a musical and it's so uplifting with a great story, lovely characters and catchy music. I finished it in two days, unfortunately it's quite short... Do you have any recommendations for other uplifting series/movies? I need more right now.

      @Irem Aytepe Oh yeah, I've totally forgot about that one even though it has been on my list... Thank you!

      Pity we can't visit him

    3. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      @Starlight That's great! Is he just studying/working there for now or does he live there permanently? Do you visit him often (when it's possible, not now unfortunately :()? 

    4. Starlight

      Starlight

      He's working and living there. :) I haven't visited him yet, he prefers to come home. :naughty: We planned to visit him, but then the pandemic started... :dunno: But as soon as it's possible we'll visit him of course!

    I miss the days when it was possible to decide at the last minute that you cross the borders of three countries to see your favourite musician live, when all you had to do was to buy a bus ticket, book a hotel room and enjoy the trip... :making-a-wish:

      Apart from seeing my friends and family, concerts are the things I miss most.  I truly miss having something to look forward to - the anticipation before the gig, meeting other fans, enjoying the live music.  I long for the day when concerts return.  At least the vaccine gives us some hope...

    3. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      @teenagedreamer98 Me too, concerts and travels are the things that give me the most joy, that I always look forward to and that make me happy for many days...  :emot-sad: I know there are bigger problems, at least I can see the majority of my family because I live with them so I'm not alone but I really miss these things. I miss the excitement, the tiredness, the anticipation, the planning, all of it. 

    4. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      Even the discomfort like sleeping on a bus and waking up so tired but you don't really care (or you do but not for a long time :teehee:),because you arrived at a new destination... Even these little things. 

  10. 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:

  11. 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:

      Paoletta

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

       

  12. 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.

    3. silver

      silver

      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.

    4. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      @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.

  13. I would prefer ballerinas... :fisch:

    It's so much fun! 

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

     

     

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

     

     

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

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

    4. giraffeandy

      @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. 

  19. 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

  21. 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

      It seems to be quite a challenge. :naughty:

  25. 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!

      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

      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?
