There are things I should probably get as they fall under the ‘need’ category such as Sketchers trainers with memory foam for my joints and my back, plus new glasses as I’m starting to get mild headaches after long blog posts but these are the wonderful things that I ‘want’ from Zavvi.
Holiday Dancing Groot (available to pre-order)
I would much rather have this logo across my chest rather than GAP or Nike.
Deadpool Vs. Carnage Graphic Novel (%15 off with code MEM15 for 24hrs!)
If you are going to be a superhero you might as well be a bad-ass one with a sick sense of humour, I say.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Director Coulson with Lola (available to pre-order)
The Bloke: Like really fatherly.
Me: Er, yeah sure *blushes*
Need For Speed PS4 (pre-order now)
Sometimes I get bored of shooting zombies and soldiers and zombie-soldiers, plus I’m really competitive!
I love how retro this graphic looks, I just wish it were a little faded and crackled.
Batman Dark Knight Returns Graphic Novel Paper Back ( %15 off with code MEM15 for 24 hrs!)
A classic piece of Frank Miller
Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burgers (available to pre-order)
As a kid I had the awkwardness of Tina but the crazy spontaneity of Louise (how I didn’t end up in a plaster cast is beyond me). It’s the look of this one though, that really makes me grin.
Which ones are you lusting after?
Creating coffee flavours. I’m not a huge fan of coffee on it’s own but I like the flavour as
2 tpns dark drinking chocolate
Drop of cold coconut milk to turn choccy into a paste
1 rounded tpn Instant coffee
1 tpn demerara sugar
1/3 can non-fat coconut milk (stirred and gently heated)
maple syrup to your taste.
Listening to Tove Lo the feisty and candid 27 year old Swedish singer and songwriter.
Drinking Bulmer’s Zesty Blood Orange Cider. I had never heard of blood oranges the first time I tried one and I thought it was a normal one – until I opened it up clumsily and it appeared to actually be bleeding! Not traumatic at all. Anyway, this cider has a grown up taste unlike sickly sweet alcopops it’s a lot more balanced and palatable, rather like a sweet rose wine.
Re-watching Third Rock From The Sun as me and the bloke loved it the first time around and now we can laugh until no sound comes out all over again but sitting next to each other. If you don’t know it’s about a group of 4 aliens that have taken the guise of a human family to study our strange little species but they find us a lot more complex and challenging than they first thought, with brilliantly funny consequences. John Lithgow’s performance is just genius! With an early turn from Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception, 500 Days of Summer) as teenager Tommy, Kristen Johnston (Sex and The City as the girl who was so bored she could die literally) as the unstoppable Sally and French Stewart (Mom TV series, The Penguins of Madagascar) on wonderfully weird form.Getting MRI scanned and getting many surprise birthday flowers! The bloke arranged a surprise delivery of them and sent a bouquet to my Mum as well for her birthday which is aday before mine – aww! 12 days later I had to go for my second full brain and spine scan where I had to keep perfectly still or they have to do that section all over again. My nerves flinch quite severely and rather randomly, plus with my attention span I find the monotony of doing nothing and waiting in a tube with a frame over my face to be really frustrating. Plus, this should have been done 6 month ago. I met The bloke at the hospital hiding behind a column!? Then I realised he’d turned up with a giant bunches of flowers! Turns out he and his Dad had gone rather flower crazy for me when doing some shopping earlier! Discovering cool geek stuff Modern live action Avengers get an original comic book make-under by artists Kate Willaert.
I’ve also discovered the original tittles of popular films when they were in book format (I knew the Philip K Dick ones obviously being a sci-fi fan), some were much better, others like the original The Social Network tittle where pretty bobbins!
Watching this trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road which looks like the film is one hell of a ride! Has anyone seen it yet?
In pain and determined to cheer myself up. I sighed and relaxed and my back just sort
of collapsed – backward! Basically I’ve been walking like an old lady penguin for several days. Who knew a kettle could feel so heavy and that you use muscles in your back when lifting it? I’m starting to realise you use the muscles in your lower back for just about everything! All of this rest means I’m getting very good at 8 Ball Pool though. Who wants a game? After three days of being cooped up I got dressed and dragged myself out to the local deli and shops to get Mediterranean style lunch, something sweet and fizzy and a magazine to read as my eyes were starting to go square after all that online pool playing.
Have you come across any of these things or is there anything similar that you recommend?
