Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.


My Bubbles!

Remember back in the day when you were still a child, for twenty cents, you can get a small pink bottle that you can blow your own bubbles until your lips pucker up from the soap? I love those. It’s been years since we last had any bubble blowing toys in the house as my sisters are all grown up. That is until my dad received an elephant-shaped bottle of bubble liquid at the petrol station.

I’ve been playing with is at least once a day and now there’s only half a bottle of the soapy liquid left. It’s really fun and relaxing, blowing all the bubbles and watch them fly around the room. I especially love it when the fan is on and you get to see the way the air moves. My sisters think I’m strange but then, that’s normal.

Once I’ve finished the small bottle I’m going to get this:

You can actually get a carton that has half a dozen of these at Toys R Us. Can you imagine how many months of bubbles that would be? So much fun to be had.

Second Breakfast: Becoming Hobbit-Like

Listening to Blind Guardian’s Nightfall In Middle-Earth album, which is based on Tolkien’s Silmarillion, made me want to start reading Tolkien again. I’ve already read Lord of The Rings twice but never got around to finishing The Hobbit or even starting Silmarillion.

I’ve had The Hobbit for seven years, having bought it a week before my exams while in uni but had to stop due to well, exams, and never finished it. So this morning, I restarted The Hobbit and I’m only in the first chapter but so far, it’s been ok. I don’t want to overload on Tolkien by reading all the Middle-Earth books I have back to back, so I’m going to intersperse it with romance novels other genres.

If you’ve seen the movies or read the book, you would know that a hobbit takes seven meals a day; breakfast, second breakfast, elevensies, luncheon, tea, dinner and supper. For such a small creature, it sure does eat a lot.

So anyway, I’m a breakfast-eating kind of person. I must have breakfast in the morning or I won’t be a happy camper come ten o’clock when my tummy starts to rumble like and earthquake. The breakfast at home this morning was scrambled egg sandwich, which was enough when I left the house. However, by the time I neared the office, I was hungry again and had to make a stop to the cafe nearby and grab some toast and peanut butter, which was yummy by the way. Mmmm… Creamy peanut butter, my favourite.

It occurred to me as I took the last bite out of my toasts, that I was having my second breakfast. If listening to Tolkien based music and reading the books can make me turn almost like a hobbit (minus the brewing and drinking of ales and smoking pipe weed), I might have to seriously hit the gym instead of just thinking of going.

Also, anyone up for tea at 11 and then for some lunch?
