Food: Gu Fusions

When anxiety strikes I tend to try to find fun food, sometimes this means buying random things that sound fun and then finding they really are not fun

Gu Fusions fall firmly in this category; strawberry mousse with fresh strawberry compote should taste nicer and preferably not flipping contain beef gelatine

I should have stuck with eating chocolate instead

Random Star Wars Thing

It’s been an odd couple of weeks and I’m feeling slightly off-centred and randomly anxious

However buying cereal did lead to winning a BB8 “breakfast unit” so that was a fun surprise

Although I’m not entirely sure when he will be used…

Food: Fake peanut butter cups

I like Reeses peanut butter cups, despite having never tried peanut butter in any other context and having no real inclination to do so; however as Reeses are not exactly healthy or cheap they are a rare treat

Wandering in the foreign food section of my local supermarket I found the Chocolate Buddy knockoff version – they are slightly cheaper than Reeses and I figured they couldn’t be awful

I was wrong, they are nasty in both taste and texture, like wash it out with mouthwash nasty

Now I really don’t want to try peanut butter

Yoga – nice free videos

I like the moving parts of yoga, the spiritual stuff I struggle with – I can’t even bring myself to “om” in front of my cat

When my last yoga teacher was fired from my gym (don’t ask) I took their advice and signed up to YogaGlo – which is fine and has loads of teachers some of whom are fab

However in the second half of last year I found my enthusiasm for yoga flagging, not great when paying a subscription fee (plus currency conversation costs) so when I was pointed in the direction of free yoga videos on YouTube with a fun teacher I was intrigued

Yoga With Adriene is certainly fun, a little more basic then I’m used to however I’m at least a bit more motivated again so that can’t be bad and I’ll probably go back to Glo when the weather stops being permanently grey and rain-filled

If you’ve never tried yoga then Adriene did a pretty beginner friendly set of classes in January, including a fun floor one

Nails: Space

Having watch the SpaceX launch of the Falcon Heavy the other day there could only be one theme in my head – space!

I did look at rocket themed nails first, that wasn’t as successful as I hoped

Film: Baywatch – “Wow. This is gonna take a while”

I’d never seen any of the Baywatch TV series, however there was a really sleazy kid at school who was obsessed with Pamela Anderson despite his being way too young for it to be even vaguely appropriate

So basically I associate Baywatch with sleazy perverts and poor parenting… Although I’m assured that wasn’t the main aim of the show

Anyway it’s years later and Hollywood desperately needed something easy to write that would make money at the box office, so Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and some ladies in uncomfortable looking swimsuits try to break up a drug ring

The plot was paper-thin and incidental: there was far more focus in the script about dick jokes and how many times everyone could say “f**k”- it was a lot of times

My favourite part of the film was that beginning credits which were in a colour and font that looked like it wanted to drip blood, it was a perfect horror film font and utterly wasted on this film

Book: ‘Questionable Content’

Questionable Content is a webcomic, however having read most of their back catalogue in just over a week it felt like a book!

A friend had sent me a couple of their strips and I’d found them funny – for example

(Strip from Questionable Content)

It turns out that this isn’t what the comic is normally about, disappointedly, it’s more like Armistead Maupin’s ‘Tales of the City’ – including the LGBT aspects which Questionable Content has cheerfully expanded to include the more recent expansions of defining sexuality and gender identity-based cultures for example LGBTQI

At times it seemed that a number of interacting characters had the exact same haircut, this didn’t encourage me to read properly and instead I found myself skimming and clicking ‘next’

To be perfectly honest I don’t feel the time spent reading all the comics was necessarily time well spent, there were a few strips that I found funny (most of which involved Pintsize – the little round-headed robot above who is usually more sex obsessed) and a whole lot of romantic angst (of various flavours) and mental health awareness pieces – which is important however not my idea of fun

However now it will be quicker to check just the new strips to see if they have Pintsize in so that’s sort of a win…
