Coldness, milkshakes, and bad naps

Sheffield is cold!

So I’m currently in Sheffield. I came here to get back to work on my dissertation. I had a meeting with my supervisor and I plan to make use of the library while I can. I fly back to Iceland on 15th February.

It’s fucking cold here though! England is more humid than Iceland, so the cold is harder to deal with. There’s also something of a lack of access to wonderful, lovely, awesome geothermal heating, so the houses are cold. And then most of the houses I’ve been staying in have been old-ish and therefore not as well insulated as I’m accustomed to.

This means I’m cold all the time! I’m starting to get used to it though.

I’m addicted to Friji’s Fudge Brownie Milkshake

I never want to stop drinking it! Too bad I won’t have access to it in Iceland. *saddest face ever*

It’s just sooooo yummy!

So thick and smooth and glorious and full of chocolatey goodness.

And it’s currently 2-for-1 at Tesco’s. I’m almost out, I’ll need to buy more tomorrow. :P

Two days ago I took a nap

I somehow managed to twist my neck in some strange fashion. It’s been super sore ever since and I almost can’t turn or lean my head to the right. Today I took a nap again and did something weird to the left side of my neck.

Lesson learned: naps are bad!

Stitch is there to express my sadness over this.


Things I love

In no particular order

Doctor Who
Doctor Who

One of my favourite TV shows. David Tennant is my favourite Doctor so far, but after having seen the first episode of the new season I have faith that Matt Smith will be awesome as well.

Zachary Quinto

Zachary Quinto

He is just too awesome and pretty for words. His tweets on Twitter amuse the hell out of me, his quirky fashion style is…well…quirky, and his Spock is brilliant.


Apple products

I am a loyal customer. I have a MacBook and an iPod Touch. I would kill for an iPhone and an iPad. I suspect one day I will become an iDora.

Buffy The Vampire SlayerBuffy the Vampire Slayer

Another one of my favourite TV shows. Buffy is such a strong woman and the characters (while silly) are often so very real with their flaws and weaknesses. I own every season on DVD and I watch them regularly. They never stop being awesome.

CamembertCamembert cheese

I love cheese but Camembert is my favourite. I can buy a whole one and just bite straight into it. I don’t need anything with it. Yes, I’m kind of gross.

Coke LightCoke Light

My one addiction. I can’t seem to break it. It’s too good.

Personal organizers

I love organizing things. I love writing things down, lists and plans. I bought a Filofax a few days ago. it’s so pretty and awesome.

Green bananasMostly green bananas

As soon as there’s nothing green left on a banana I don’t like it anymore. If it has spots it’s completely disgusting to me. I like them when they are still firm.


Do I need to explain this one?

koi fishKoi fish

I don’t know why. They are just gorgeous. I love both real koi and koi art. One day I will have a big house with a big yard and there will be a vegetable patch, fruit trees and a koi pond.

Matryoshka dollsMatryoshka dolls

My dad bought me one in Latvia (if I remember correctly) a few years ago. Since then they’ve become something of an obsession. I’m trying to start collecting matryoshkas but I only have two so far. I am planning all sorts of crafts with matryoshkas, especially for my kitchen.

Rosina WachtmeisterRosina Wachtmeister

Her art is so very beautiful to me. So bright and colourful and  happy. Another thing I want to collect. I have two pictures for my walls (including this one) and a candle jar so far.


Nom. I just had some today. It was delicious. :)
