Coffee and shared treats with hubby: super fluffy kinako mochi that was delicious, fruit pound cake that was excessively sweet, so I let my hubby have it, and sweet potato cookie that was okay tasting.

I read the news that John “ToatlBiscuit” Bain died after a long battle with cancer and it shook me more than I expected it would. I listened to his podcast called Co-Optional for the past 6 or 7 years and enjoyed when he and his wife Genna snarked over different game award shows or reviewed snack boxes together etc. I don’t think I would have called myself his fan, but he was in a way part of my life for years and even though I never met him in person, I got to know him through his shows and social media. So, it hurt a lot when I learned he had died and at such a young age as well- he was only 33! I cried for a bit, reading people writing up their memories about him, ate a lot of comfort food and then went to sleep and slept most of the day, because fuck, I didn’t feel like doing anything after this. I was grieving.

Infinity War… 8. May 2018

 Oat-rice porridge with slices of chocolate orange, chia seeds and roasted sunflower seeds.

 Homemade lemonade @ Gotsu

 Hubby had some bulgogi and ssambap.

 I had kimchi stew with pork and some rice.

Also had popcorn at the movies…

 Banana bread.

We went to see “Avengers: Infinity War” in the evening with hubby and Miss K. Wheesh, that movie was a ride… I was quietly muttering “oh no no no no” to myself a lot when watching the story unfold. It was just heart-breaking how many of my favourite characters died D: I mean, some of them will most likely return, but still…

It was confusing. The movie was quite upsetting to watch, but it was also very very good… and funny! Despite the horribly heavy subject matter. I also didn’t expect to sympathize with the main villain :/ I mean I felt for him, just did not agree with his methods etc. It was weird and unexpected.

I was quite peeved however that my hope of my OTP having some screen time together again never happened… that hope disappeared very quickly, because they killed one of them off in the first 5 minutes of the film 8D

Anyway, I am so looking forward to the next one!

Isle of Dogs… 22. April 2018

 Enoki mushroom-broccolini miso soup and a grilled sandwich with ham, cheese and tomato.

 Two Nutella sandwiches.

 Garlic tomato soup with quinoa and tortellini.

In the evening we went to see “Isle of Dogs” with hubby. WOW what a masterpiece of a movie! It was so beautiful, heart-warming and humorous. I enjoyed it immensely! And to think how much work went into this movie! My respect to all the artists who worked on this 🙂

Work, clinic and friends… 4-5. May 2017

4. May

 Coffee and a kohuke. The kohuke wasn’t very good and I didn’t eat the Cherry-Spice Ampstükk, because it tasted horrible. Disappointing breakfast.

 Breakfast take 2: porridge with honey and butter

 A smoked tofu burrito @ Koloniaal

 Pelmeni in spicy chili sauce with salad

5. May

 Rice crackers with ham, cucumber and sesame seeds

 Smoothie and brownies from Blender

 Saku Antvärk honey pear cider

 Saku Antvärk lime cloudberry cider. Look at my adorable Yurio charm that Eva got me 😀

 Coffee ♥

 Laura Moon’s chili with rice and sour cream

 Cheesecake from Killuke Kooki

I had a doctor’s appointment in the morning which was super stressful. At first my doctor was late and then it was just emotionally quite hard. I was emotionally exhausted afterwards, so I went and blasted a gift card I had in Blender for and energy boost in the form of a delicious smoothie and some brownies.

Later in the evening I had Eva and Marit over for some chili and drinks. Eventually, Indrek came home as well and brought cake. I totally overate :p

The Bifrost Incident… 7. April 2017

 Rice cereal with milk

 Tomato soup with sour cream and mozzarella

 A cheesecake flavoured kohuke

 Buckwheat-cabbage stew with sour cream

 A cherry pastry and a chocolate doughnut

I spent the day listening to The Mechanisms album “The Bifrost Incident” on Spotify. I am so in love with it. It’s as if the band had opened my head up, fished around in it for ideas and then wrote this album. It’s brilliant. I had goosebumps and was jumping around the room in excitement while listening to this masterpiece. This hasn’t happened to me in a long while.

Basically, it’s like a story told in a musical form, with different voices singing as different characters. If you are into Norse mythology, steampunk, Lovecraft or all the previously mentioned, be sure to give this album a listen. You can listen or buy the album here or look it up on Spotify 🙂

Day 9 – Series/shows that you like

I don’t watch random television anymore. I have a TV, but it has no channels attached to it. We mostly use the TV as a big computer screen where we stream movies, anime or some TV series occasionally. I used to watch a lot of series and some television reality and entertainment shows, but as time goes on I tend to watch less and less. If I  watch anything regularly these days it’s probably “The Co-Optional Podcast” every week, but that’s neither a TV series nor a TV show… and most of the times I just listen to it while doing the dishes.

For some reason, I haven’t liked many of the very popular series that everyone seems to be obsessing about. I didn’t like “Breaking Bad” because of the subject matter, “Orange is the New Black,” left me feeling bored. I was super excited about “Hannibal,” but since this show got so hyped up for me on tumblr, I felt disappointed when I finally watched it. I hoped for more fucked up symbolic visons and for it to be more artistic… or something. Over-hype is bad, it can ruin potentially good things for you.

I watched only a couple of episodes of “Game of Thrones” and loved it, but for whatever reason I have no desire to sit down and watch it all. I peek at the screen when my boyfriend watches it and then I go to Wikipedia and read up on what’s happening, because I am so very interested in the story and its outcome. Just not enough to watch the show properly.

What else? I have been thinking about giving “The Walking Dead,” a try, but never actually bothered to do it. I kind of think it would have the over-hype effect for me again as it’s so huge on tumblr. I watched the first season on “Penny Dreadful” and liked it a lot. I *think* I watched the second season or at least some of it, but by then I started losing interest, so I haven’t even peeked at the third season. We also watched the first season of “Hemlock Grove” with my boyfriend and despite us binge watching it and being quite fascinated with the entire mystery, we didn’t pick up the second season. We also watched several seasons of “Elementary,” which was decent with some ups and downs, but I am not sure if we will ever continue watching it or not.

Now a thing, I watched recently and adored, is “Stranger Things.” This was to me the perfect combination of artistic creepiness with amazing characters and an interesting story-line, so I can’t wait for the second season. I also really like the BBC “Sherlock” series, but I feel less passionate about it with every new season. I will however absolutely continue watching it.

There isn’t much anything that I feel excited about or that I particularly want to see. As for other television shows or reality TV, I honestly don’t care about it anymore. Friends have tried to get me into stuff like “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” but it hasn’t worked for me at all.

Some of my all time favourite television series over the years have been “The X Files,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Eureka” (of which I still haven’t watched the very last episode, because I was so upset over the cancellation of the series) and “Twin Peaks.” I have actually been thinking of re-watching “The X Files” AGAIN. I think I have seen this show in its entirety about 4 or 5 times now. Last week I was also thinking that perhaps I should watch all “Stargate: SG-1,” because I never finished that show and I was quite in loved with it at some point.

Anyway, this is what I have been or haven’t been watching. I don’t think I have liked much, but I’ve been told it’s due to my current mental condition. Whether it’s true or not, I have no idea. Anyway, have a witty summary of my favorite ever television series:

If you have a favourite TV series you think I should give a try, let me know in the comments 🙂
