Snowing outside

Its snowing in Copenhagen! We havent had a shred of winter so far and this morning I wake up and lo and behold, outside white flakes tumble down to the ground. Life is full of surprises sometimes.

Which reminds me, I was reading a book by Haruki Murakami called Norwegian Wood (published in 1987), in it one of the characters has a grandparent that has this motto "Life is like a box of chocolates" ... hmm, I know this quote from somewhere. Forest Gump! Little research on wikipedia and voila, the book Forest Gump (published in 1985, movie in 1994) never had that quote, the book said "Being an idiot is no box of chocolates". So the movie borrowed that line from Norwegian Wood, just so you know :-)
