Today is December, 9th. There are 16 days left till Christmas! :D
I think almost all people love this holiday, the day of wonders and presents (not only from our dearests and nearests, but from the desteny also, when all dreams may come true).
Christmas trees and decorations going up, houses and gardens aglow with lights and every time you look in the paper, turn on the TV or take a trip to the shopping centre. WoW!
Everything lets us know about the coming Christmas. I adore to do presents and going to do shoping as soon as possible!

So, the other day I read in the Internet that a new movie goes into production where Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman star there ("Australia"). Tourism promoters claim the real star of the movie is the country itself. The movie opens internationally on Nov. 26.
What is it about? The film follows the story of a noblewoman on a cattle drive in Australia during World War II. The movie was filmed largely in rugged Western Australia, notably in and around the small town of Kununurra, a three-hour flight north of Perth, and in the California-sized Kimberley wilderness region.
As the director of the film said, that tourism numbers will rise after the movie would be released.

There are several rules how to cure yourself from worries:
- Challenge your negative beliefs.
- Learn to accept uncertainty. Just be yourself :)
- Name your fear.

For example, my dad, when he feels ill, always uses the phrase "I'm under the weather... Uff"
But the origins of the term is not related to cold weather at all. In fact, "under the weather" is a saying with a nautical background. Sailors and passengers on ships would get ill or seasick during their journey. Sick passengers were ordered to go below deck, which was believed to be the most stable part of the ship as well as a shelter from the weather. This was to ensure a speedy recovery from whatever was ailing them.
So, it’s no matter what profession you have, you use this phrase as a synonym for being ill. But it means also "being intoxicated" :D
