Floyd is the Best

Hiya!

I’m currently rehearsing for my sister’s music exam tomorrow – I’m playing the bass guitar in her ensemble piece.

And the most magical thing happened.

My bass guitar, Floyd (named after Floyd Pepper, bass player in Dr. Teeth’s band Electric Mayhem on the Muppets) decided that as WELL as playing notes, it would also play the radio.

My local radio played through the amp.

Floyd is the best.

Silly Questions

Hiya!!

I’ve stumbled upon some interesting quotes and the like that fill me right up with joy – quotes about living life and being unique and things. This got me thinking about how the silly questions can sometimes tell you a lot about a person and their life experiences. So I devised a list of questions – mostly strange and delightful – that I will be answering, and passing on.

What is your opinion on hats?
I don’t mind hats on the whole, they just look awful on me. I have short hair that gets sweaty and flat and ew when I clamp a hat on.. but if you like wearing hats, go ahead. A-HEAD, get it??
If you had to wear an animal on your head for the rest of your life, what animal would it be?
A hedgehog, for multiple reasons. 1, I believe hedgehogs to be very motivating and inspirational little buddies who would encourage me with their little squeaky voices; 2, I’m pretty sure those little fuzzy bellies are warm and snuggly and my beanie comes with a massage feature so come at me; 3, because having a small, spiky ninja on your head is badass and we could rule the world.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Flight. I don’t know how, with wings probably (and preferably.) I’ve been trying to manage flying since I was 2, so yah, flight. 
What are your favourite and least favourite words?
Ooooooh. For favourite I’d say something juicy like ‘despise’. So much richer than ‘hate,’ no? Or something silly like ‘fickle.’ I don’t know least favourite but I do always say ‘bathroom’ instead of ‘toilet’ when the topic arises. ‘Toilet’ sounds vulgar. 
If regular walking in public was illegal, how would you get places?    
I would skip. Obviously.

I would like to pass on these questions to the beautiful Z, of I Prefer Deep Blues and Sea Foam Greens (https://deepbluesandseafoamgreens.wordpress.com/) and the cool MrFancyAnimator over at InternetSquared (https://internetsquared.wordpress.com/), and you guys can pass them on when you’re done too. Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!!

Flour is Exciting

Hiya!!

Today, my parents came home from shopping with a surprise for me, and I feel like I got more excited that other people would. It’s not something that would encourage people to run around screaming, ‘OMG NOW PEOPLE WILL MARRY ME FOR MY WEALTH AS WELL AS MY BEAUTY!!” *tragic attempt at a hair flick* But I was super happy. Wanna know what I got?

Flour. My parents went shopping, and came back with a 5kg bag of unbleached baker’s flour.

I’m not crazy. Really. (Not about this, anyway. :P) People who bake bread will know what I’m talking about already, but here is a brief explanation: the type of flour you get varies depending on what you want to make, and the variation occurs in the protein content of the flour. Flour with a higher protein percentage is better for bread, because it is stronger and allows the bread to rise and hold gas without collapsing. This is essential in baking bread like those big rustic Italian loaves that people love.

This type of bread is what I love to bake and eat, so baker’s flour is really important. The problem is, I can rarely find large quantities that are both cheap and high quality. Thus, my 5kg bag was a pretty big deal.

So does this make me weird? I mean, I started hugging the bag. Okay, maybe I’m crazy.. but I bake bread. So there.

A whole lot of weird and wonderful things that will make little to no sense whatsoever but might make you laugh or cry (sorry) or feel wiser or understand me deeper or understand yourself and others and why we do what we do and how and hopefully feel like the last 5 minutes of your time was not wasted. (yeah)

I look forward to being confused about my weirdness with you :)
