    You should go see it. And pull out your dashikis too (I know you have).
    I actually don't have any lol. I might try to see it soon, I needed a Saturday without doing anything social or seeing people. Maybe I could wear a cute dress made out of ankara that my sister's mom in law made for me (she was nice to have a dress made out of the same material for my mom too and my sister as well).

    I'm not sure if I have mentioned it before but I'm Nigerian-American (I was born here, my parents were born there and came to the US over 30 years ago).

    We're going to join the masses and go see Black Panther this weekend, hopefully.
    That looks like a great movie. I want to see it. Please let me know how you like it, but don't give any spoilers.

    I knew you were Nigerian, but wasn't sure if you were born here or there.

    Still, gotta have a dashiki hidden in the back of the closet.

    No spoilers from me. One of the common things is that there have been a fair amount of people who have worn African style dress and makeup to see the movie during the first two week it's been released. It's great because there's a sense of pride that everyone can relate to.

    It's on track in terms of sales to beat Star Wars for the all time record.

    Oh I see @99 is buying a new car. What about RAV-4 Hybrid? Uncle has it and seems quite satisfied. Or Nissan, not sure what it is over there, Rouge(and Rouge Sport) I think. We are still holding onto 10 year old Laguna, still nothing wrong with it but we were used to changing cars more frequently

    Also, last Sunday I had chance to drive new X3 and 540i on BMW Xdrive event, great thing that X3 for an SUV, it genuinely drives well around corners. Still, I just can't help my self loving 540i, for me it is the only car I would ever need.

    Ooh okay, cool. Now you know. You have good memory since you remembered that.

    Yeah I have seen a lot of people doing that on Instagram and Twitter and it's pretty cool.

    The movie's social and cultural impacts cannot be overstated.

    Note to self: don't fall asleep with the candle still lit. Fortunately, this is a new scented candle (a bath and body works one) so everything was fine, aside from the stuffed nose I now have.

    The best part about it is seeing how the children have responded to it too. Really good stuff indeed.

    Neither one of us likes the RAV4. And the Rogue is good but the CR-V is better for us. Hence the narrowing down to the CR-V.

    I love the 320d and might get it next year. We shall see.

    I've enrolled in the OTA beta program for Andy's phone. Once I get it, I'll put it through its paces to see if it improves the experience.

    Speaking of phones, is anyone interested in MWC starting this weekend? Is there anything you are curious to know about?

    I want to confirm if the new Sony phones are really not going to have a headphone jack and also pricing. Apparently Sony also has a surprise so I wonder what that will be.

    I'm more curious to see the Mi 7 and P20, which won't be at MWC. I hope for Sony's sake they've got new camera tricks on their new phones.

    Just FYI, 50cm is roughly 19-20 inches. So that's a lot of snow!

    Weight on the roofs could be dangerous. In Finland they have special teams to clear the roofs in Helsinki. Both to prevent the roof from collapse and to protect people from being hurt or killed.

    My X3 has Xdrive but it needs to be looked at. I think it had issues... Otherwise we're quite happy with it.

    I do miss my 320...

    Thanks for that FYI. OMG that's too much snow. I believe that it can be dangerous for sure.
