 Toasted rye bread with cheese spread and tomato + a cup of coffee.

 A banana.

 A couple of boiled eggs with flavoured salt and a sandwich with cheese spread, smoked pork, cucumber and tomato.

 Fried chicken wings to share with everyone.

We went to see “Suicide Squad” with my boyfriend and Miss K. The movie was alright I suppose. It wasn’t what I expected it to be and the storyline was pretty confusing and full of weird plot holes, but most of the characters were pretty lovable. It had fun action and it was pretty funny at times, but they had tried to cram so many characters and back stories to one movie that it was all a bit meh in the end. I did love Harley Quin a lot. The Joker was… meh… too forcefully stylised and not working for me. I didn’t hate the character; I just wasn’t impressed by him either. The Enchantress was cool visually and the rest of the bunch was great too… except for Katana. I think she could be an interesting character on her own, but in the movie she felt so out of place.

Altogether I think it was a fun movie to watch if you don’t take it too seriously or are not overly invested in the characters.

Angry at this illness… 24. August 2016

 Bran crispbread with avocado and tomato; a cup of coffee.

 A slice of white bread with avocado and tomato.

 A motivational smoothie from Boost: watermelon-strawberry smoothie with chia seeds.
I wasn’t feeling too good, but I decided I should go for a walk anyway, so I promised myself I’d buy myself a smoothie from Boost if I went out anyway. I managed to walk to the town centre, but took the bus back home, because by the time I got my smoothie and wanted to head back I was feeling pretty dizzy. I’m usually all for properly sitting out all the illnesses and recovering before becoming more active again, but I guess I am just so angry at this Lyme disease that I just don’t want to give in to it. What do you mean my joints hurt and I start feeling out of breath and dizzy when I walk? Fuck this, I’m going for a walk anyway! It’s how this entire thing feels.

 Dinner was roasted tomato soup with sour cream and grilled cheese sandwiches with pesto, tomato and avocado.

 Black tea and about 3 of these lemon cookies. The lemon cookies tasted so much better than the cocoa ones we had the day before, but they still had a very strong and annoying artificial smell.

Rainy… 23. August 2016

 For breakfast I had a cup of coffee and some tuna-carrot rice wrapped in a nori sheet.

 Unchoko. Grape flavoured lucky/poop chocolate in a cute kappa box :p Since it was so quirky, I did a short video of it too:

The name is a wordplay where “un” can both mean luck and poop. It’s accurate as the little kappa “poops” out the choco-balls from its rear and you can tell your fortune by which coloured ball comes out first. Since it was a green ball for me, it means my popularity luck should go up :p A pink ball would have meant money luck and a purple one diet luck :p

 Nestle Cheerios Oats with milk.

 Dinner was roasted tomato soup with sour cream and grilled cheese sandwiches with pesto.

 Hot cocoa and a couple of these cookies. The hot chocolate was so good and warm, but the cookies were a tad bit disappointing. They had a very artificial strong smell that irritated me and their taste was just meh.

It was a tranquil rainy day with a bit of thunder. I wish things in my head could have been as tranquil.

Eugheugheugh… 22. August 2016

 Lemon-lime quark.

 Toasted rye bread with cheese spread and tomato; also a cup of instant cheese soup.

 Egg and wakame soup with some tuna-carrot onigiri.

So, Lyme disease is beyond annoying. I feel constantly tired and weak. My hands and feet ache and suddenly I have trouble walking for a longer period of time. I have walked a lot this summer and usually pretty long distances too without trouble, but now I feel weak and breathless already after some minutes😦 I hope the antibiotics make this all go away soon.

I did however manage to write a bit of my thesis again. It wasn’t much, but I consider it a progress. Baby steps in trying to get this train going.

Cake fail… 20. August 2016

 Porridge with pumpkin seeds and butter.

 Grilled salmon, salad with grilled cheese and some fried battered mushroom. Also had some very weak wine with tonic water.

 Grilled chicken and sausage, another piece of mushroom and more grilled cheese salad.

I also had some spicy grilled mushrooms and veggies, but forgot to take a photo.

 Chocolate pear brownie cake. This cake didn’t turn out too well, it was too runny and thus ruined in my eyes. It was still edible though. I will, however, never again try to follow a recipe with American measurements, because their cups and sticks of butter make no sense and always become somewhat of a mess of a result after trying to convert the measurements into the European ones. But I think that recipe was flawed anyway, because some of the measurements felt unbalanced even already in the original format.

We went to visit our friends who live nearby and spent the evening sitting in their garden and consuming horrendous amounts of delicious food. It was super lovely.

I like this song lately:
