Two days off work… 8-9. June 2017

8. June

 Chicken heart-sorrel soup with sour cream

 True Spirit sea salt potato chips

 Coffee, hazelnuts in milk chocolate

 Red rice with tuna-tomato sauce and some marinated cucumber-carrot salad

9. June

 Fried eggs with tuna-tomato sauce and some marinated cucumber-carrot salad

 Milka Choco Jaffa orange jelly cookies

 Potato and barley curry with sour cream

I had two days off work, so I did some errand running in town, dyed my hair green, prepared some water kimchi and started on my first sourdough starter. I’d say that it was a productive two days despite me failing to get the apartment clean. Oh well, dust bunny and kitty litter free floors are overrated anyway.

Also, I have lost 6kg! 😀 So hyped!
About 7 more kg to go now 😦

Circle K… 3. May 2017

 Duck salad with noodles from Circle K

 Pasta carbonara @ Koloniaal

 Jäämari lime-coconut popsicle

 Scrambled eggs with leftovers from yesterday + some salad

I guess we officially have a convenience store in Estonia now. Most of the Circle K shops used to be Statoil gas stations before and Circle K bought them, so now we have Circle K shops that don’t have a gas station attached to them as well. I suppose the Statoil stores had been turning into convenience stores already over the years, but people usually still thought of them as gas stations rather than convenience stores.

A work day and a birthday party… 14-15. April 2017

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 🙂

Forgetting everything… 5. April 2017

 Rice with tuna, cabbage, sour cream, soy sauce and black sesame seeds


Spicy tomato soup over tortilla chips with some Kalamaja Vürtsleib (bread made by Paljas Pagar) @ Koloniaal

 Fries @ Diner

 Boyfriend had a giant spicy burger

 My “naked” burger with salad. We also shared a bottle of Limonaad.

I had work in the morning. Kadi came to hang out in the café near lunch time, which was awesome 😀 She waited for my shift to end so we could catch the same trolleybus home. By that point I was tired and super forgetful about everything, so half way to the trolleybus stop, I remembered that I needed to go pick up my health certificate from the doctor’s office. So, I tortured her poor tired feet and turned us around, walked to the doctor’s office, picked up my certificate, took it back to work… only to find out that I had forgotten to log out of my Spotify account over there and that I had also forgotten my phone charger xD Good thing I went back there I guess xD

Eventually, we did catch the trolleybus 😀 I was dead tired when I got home, so I took a nap. Since I was too groggy to cook dinner later, boyfriend, the sweetheart, took us to Diner for dinner 😀 Which was the greatest thing ever 😀

Too much rice and violence in films… 9. February 2017

 Fried potatoes

 Pistachio and Macarons ice cream that was delicious

 Rice with ham and soy sauce

 Some meat pastries I shared with my boyfriend; rice with tuna and Chinese cabbage. Also, had a cup of coffee.

We watched “John Wick” in the evening, because boyfriend has been excited about the sequel and I hadn’t seen the first one yet. I was a bit sceptical about whether I could stomach the movie as it is quite violent, but it was alright. I really liked the movie a lot. There is something really cool about the idea of an assassin’s reputation being so good that not even the police dare to fuck with him xD

We have also been watching the first season of “Westworld,” which I enjoy a lot despite it being bloodier than I am usually comfortable with when it comes to people gutting each other.

It’s weird with me and violence in movies. Some of my favourite ever movies are quite violent. Take for instance “Alien” (and the sequels). It’s a rather violent movie with body horror elements, but I don’t mind it all that much. I’ve come to the realisation that violence doesn’t bother me as much when it takes place in a fantasy setting. It perhaps doesn’t feel as real when it’s an orc gutting a man or a bunch of elves slashing at each other or some monster hibernating in a human corpse, but when it’s two guys in a “realistic” (be it the streets of New York or the imaginary wild west space in “Westworld” even) setting shooting or beating each other, then somehow to me it feels more real and it’s harder for me to watch. Of course, it also depends how graphicly the violence is shown I guess. I twitched and groaned in several places during both “John Wick” and “Westworld” where knives were used in a fight in the former or sawing off an android’s head in the latter.

Anyhow, what’s your favourite movies and how do you feel about graphic violence in movies?
