Comfort foods… 29. August 2016

 Sandwiches with smoked pork and tomato + a cup of coffee.

 Yakiimo (baked sweet potato) cookies.

 Mashed veggies (potato, carrot, broccoli) and boiled wieners with ketchup.

 Black tea and some more Yakiimo cookies. The cookies were super sweet, so they went perfect with unsweetened tea.

Sadness… 28. August 2016

 White bread with mashed avocado, shepherd’s pie with some cucumber and tomato.

 We had both grilled and smoked trout and garlicy potatoes for lunch.

 Chocolate cheesecake and coffee.

 Tea and a chocolate pastry.

It feels so sad when you are with a group of people and realise that you are basically still all alone unless you aggressively fight your way into the conversation. Several times I found myself starting to tell a story or add something to the general conversation, only to quickly understand that I was basically talking to myself. After I had stopped talking in mid-sentence without anyone noticing for about three times, I gave up and didn’t talk at all. Don’t think anyone noticed that either.

Am I that uninteresting? Annoying? Or am I secretly unwanted in the company? I have no idea. But I felt unwanted and alone. Things just plummeted down to dark depths for me after that. It didn’t help that I was feeling quite sick again too.

At least the environment was pretty. And the food was good.

@ The Viking Village:

Flea market… 27. August 2016

 Coffee and some tuna onigiri.

 Home-made ice cream @ the flea market. One scoop was kama flavoured, the other one basil-orange flavoured. Delicious stuff!

 A luscious pulled pork burrito. It was super juicy and tasty.

 Shepherd’s pie with some cucumber and tomato.

We spent the day at a big flea market trying to get rid of our excess stuff we no longer needed. I had lots of clothes, books and doodads with me and boyfriend brought along some of his ancient computer stuff. I was skeptical about the computer parts selling well, but eventually these sold much better than my things xD Guys, who looked stereotypically nerdy, flocked around and went all: “oh, this is the exact piece of cable I’ve been needing!” or “oh wow, of course I will buy this 10 years old mouse, it’s awesome!” etc. It was funny.

It’s kind of awesome when your old junk becomes someone else’s treasure. My highlight of the day was a young guy who found “Almost Transparent Blue” by Murakami Ryū from my box of books. Apparently he had been trying to find that book for ages as it’s out of print these days. I asked 3 euros for it and he sprinted off to get money. When he returned, he gave me 6 euros instead, because he was just so happy about the find xD

We got rid of almost half of the stuff we had brought along and the rest we donated to a re-use centre, because honestly- we just wanted to get rid of it all xD

Suicide Squad… 25. August 2016

 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.

 A warm meat salad @ Tommi Grill.

 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.
