I HAVE THE PIPPI LONGSTOCKING GENE.

22 Jan

the snow is piling up on the wintergarden of my roof and while i’m writing this i am hiding under a beautiful blanket – the one that nana gave me for my birthday, it’s soooo fluffy – looking up and feeling like an eskimo in his igloo.

today i had my first day of work for sally bollywood again. she’s an interesting little person and i missed her in the past one and a half years where we didn’t work on new episodes.but now 52 new episodes have arrived and there’s a lot to do.

i made my way through the city through the snow, arrived at the studio, got myself a cappuccino (caffeine has always been such a faithful lover to me and i especially love it when mr. caffeine kicks in right before i hit the microphone).

so we worked and worked.

4,5 hours of sally dubbing were on the plan.

after half of the time my director said to me: “i’ve been thinking about it all the time, but now i know for sure, you remind me of someone. shall i tell you?”

“it depends…”, i answered and smiled.

i don’t know why but i kind of expected the worst.

and then he said: “pippi longstocking! yes, you remind me of pippi longstocking.

honestly, people, is there a better compliment you can get?

pippi is fun, pippi is independent, pippi has a cool house and a horse. and there’s mr. nilsson. and she has cool friends. well, annika is not THAT cool. but they’re true friends and always by her side. and she knows how to navigate a hot-air balloon and a boat. and she is determined and doesn’t let people who say that it cannot be done stop her from doing it. pippi is the mother of all motivation coaches and the essence of positivity.

so hey, yes! i can handle that comparison. honestly. i love it!

definitely my yesyesyes-moment of the day!!! ❤
