ellestra: (lightning)
Yesterday, was a beautiful, sunny and warm day. After a week of frosty mornings and then rain it was perfect. But it didn't last. It's cold again and it's about to get even colder. Neither Monday nor Tuesday is going to go much above freezing and nights are suppose to be something like -10oC (17oF). It's just slightly warmer than Poland now but Poland also has snow so it at least looks pretty (I got photos from my mum - it's a prefect postcard winter because snow was wet when it was falling and then it got cold so it froze on branches and fences) and you can do all the snow stuff. Here the worst part about cold weather is that it comes with the cold wind and this kind of chilly air that goes through most of clothes like cold needles. My parents refuse to believe it's necessary this far South but I keep telling them that when the weather gets like this I wear all my warmest jackets - the ones I use for -15oC days in Poland and sometimes that air still gets through. The feel of around 0oC or just below temperatures here is almost always like it's much colder. In Poland it's often still feels OK or even warmer than it is - especially when it's snowing. Of course the forecast says there might be snow next weekend here too. And that's always like a small apocalypse.

Meanwhile in today's Glavant episodes Richard got himself a dragon. A real one unfortunately (the lizard looks like bearded dragon). He bought it for the Crown Jewel of Valencia. This leads to another fight that ends up in war when they both join to opposing fractions of identically sized men - Dwarfs and Giants (the latter led by Nick Frost) and abandon Bobbie. I'm starting to like Bobbie - she never looses the sight of how ridiculous the whole conflict was and fixes it all by herself.

Meanwhile the jewel is still gone and they still don't have the army. Isabella won't be happy once she finds out. Especially since she is finally free from her wedding spell thanks to a visit to an improper Princess Jubilee. No that Izzy is back to her normal self and free from her engagement to cousin Harry (for the price of a bra) I wouldn't mind if she and Jubilee spent more time together. They could practice sword fighting.

Speaking of swordfighting - Galavant has found his father again. And the sword fighting school for lost boys he runs. And to add insult to injury Unfortunately he was recasted so no Anthony Head for us but they do make up and play cabbage. Meanwhile Roberta and Richard bond over valuing food over pity. Who care about bad parenting when there is meal in sight?

So Wormwood is exiled and Syd has escaped and they coincidently they meat in the Forest of Coincidence where everyone gets what they need - cart, horse, sword and information. Syd gets to meet with Galavant again and Wormwood gets his war-mad king and queen. After Queen Madalena has been unable to give Gareth a proper fight for birthday (poor Gareth - no one wants to brawl with a king) she is happy to give him a war. That’s all he really wanted. Awww, those two give each other perfect gifts - cut off ears, wars and sometimes flowers. I'm kind of starting to feel this relationship.
