3 things I’ve googled lately

ONE. Is silicone really that bad for the hair?

You know my favorite hair oil? The argan oil from Superdrug? This one:

Obvs the one to the far right.

The reason this hair oil is better than other hair oils is that it contains silicone. Silicone is, in my opinion, the best thing for dialling down the frizz. Oil is all good and well, but it only goes part of the way.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t specifically looking for the answer Silicones really aren’t that bad.

Most sources, obviously, argue that it’s terrible. And they do have a point. But I wasn’t settling for that answer. Because how can something that feels so good be so wrong?

Finally found this article claiming there’s a work-around. In fact, it even encourages the use of silicone on frizzy hair.

Now, why would I choose to believe this particular article over the bizillion of sources saying silicone is the devil?

Well. Let’s be honest, I want to, which is a terrible reason, but also they do make a convincing argument.

Basically, what the article says is that frizzy hair needs moisture. You can use the silicone to lock in moisture. The problem is if you don’t first wash out previous buildup of silicone, it will work in the exact opposite way, it will prevent moisture from getting into the hair and that’s when the silicone will start to work against you.

This means that you will want to use a clarifying shampoo to get rid of pesky buildup, followed by some product that restores and preferably adds even more moisture to the hair and then you seal it all up with the silicone.

I for one am convinced! Will happily proceed to use the Superdrug argan, but might want to look into investing in a good (and cruelty free) shampoo. (My current bottle is not cruelty free, but shh! don’t tell anyone.)

TWO. Hamstring exercises

Do you sometimes get this craving to focus on a certain muscle? I do. I liked the exercises provided by Women’s Health & Fitness here. Especially since it lists how many reps and sets you should be doing depending on your goal; if it’s for building muscles, building strength or losing fat.

Did not occur to me that there was a difference between building muscle and building strength, and also, I’m going to have to bring this to the gym where they have the grown up weights, aren’t I?

THREE. Visual representation of the recommended daily intake of fat for vegans

Ah yes, these specific searches rarely lead to any sort of useful info. I’m looking for something like a picture of a handful of nuts saying this right here is your recommended daily intake.

I’m not finding it.

I was, however, informed that as a vegan I should be cooking my food in rapeseed oil. For the omega 3. 1-2 tablespoons. Guess I’m adding that to my grocery list, I’ve never been in the habit of using rapeseed oil at all.

Speaking of fat, in the process of research I found out that vegans can happily keep using coconut oil; people on diets that include meat though might not want to. The plant based diet lacks saturated fat so the use of coconut oil in cooking is a good thing. Well thank god. Didn’t even occur to me that it might not be good for you.

Best of January


Caroline Hirons! Did the best post for the first day of the year. She’s got some excellent ideas about what to leave in 2017, including very sound arguments. Go read!

Especially love how while she’s not cruelty-free, she still argues pro-cruelty free. 💕



E.l.f. smudge brush. I bought three E.l.f. brushes: concealer brush, blending brush and smudge brush (the one with the white handle, obviously). While I am happy with the purchase overall, I’m less than convinced that the concealer brush and blending brush are as good as it gets. There could well be better ones out there. (Cheaper? Probably not.) The smudge brush though, so pleased with its performance!


I’ve tried a few different foot feeling masks now, my favorite so far is this one:

Sunday mask! Little something for the feet.

A post shared by @ lisaanniesette on

I shall tell you why: feet peel quicker than with other masks I’ve tried, deeper peel and rather than peeling a bit at a time for days and days, more skin peeled off at the same time, for about three days and then it was done. You just have to appreciate that.

If you haven’t tried foot peeling masks yet you need to get to it! Foot cream and files is all good and well, but this stuff! Makes so much more of a difference.


PMS-podden. Still! Had to run to the library to get their book too. I wish you could all read it.

TV show

First Dates. Currently my favorite game! (It is a game right? You watch and try to guess who will want a second date and who won’t, yes?) Who knew people could be so fascinating?!

Ack Värmland. Because Mia Skäringer is genius?


Jenny Mustard! When I saw the title of this video my instant thought was “Nooo..not her too!? I thought she was all for the body positivity?? I cannot take another ‘I’m going to get fit’ resolution, just can’t.

Spoiler: not what this video is about at all. Watch it! If you’re as bored as me with the getting fit and going on a diet bullshit you’ll like it, promise!


Found new account!

No idea why I didn’t stumble on it sooner?! I’ve missed so much!

And in case you forgot I have a one track mind, this guy alone is a reason to be on Twitter:


Added about a zillion new vegan accounts to my feed. Here is one:

Here is another:

Third one:


XCERTS released a new album. And it’s brilliant. Current fave track off of the record:

Little Jinder feat. Lykke Li; Hålla handenAnother new release that’s just brilliant.

Pvris; Are You Ten Years Ago. Have not been this taken with a song in a while. It’s a repeater!


Har du PMS, eller? by Charlie Michaelsen and Jenny Öhrn Segolsson. 💕

Monthly menstrual report

WHY AM I BLEEDING ON DAY 31 YOU BASTARD???? Ruining my stats! Also, when and why has first day of period turned into PMS x 10???

Yeayea. Mustn’t complain. I was far less exhausted during this cycle than the one before. I wonder why that is. Magnesium? Stretching? Zinc?

Apparently zinc is more important than I thought/knew. I was just taking it just in case, because there are studies saying there’s a connection between zinc deficit/becoming vegetarian at a young age and PCO.

Not that I’ve kept track, but I seem to recall the introduction of zinc supplements coinciding with the return of semi-regular cycles.

But more than anything I’m a big believer in magnesium. Emphasis on believer.

Yeayea, I’m probably peeing it all out, but one shouldn’t underestimate the effect of placebo. I’ll take anything I can get.

3 things I did this week

Splurged on a few bits of makeup and skincare. Well. As much splurging as sticking with my budget will allow. A couple of highlighters, a glycolic peel mask and a blusher from Superdrug (because that is how to splurge while still sticking to your budget), among other things. Quite chuffed that despite the 20% off on Paula’s Choice I managed to make myself go with the budget option No7:


Started rereading Carol Goodman’s Incubus. In the past, I’ve insisted this is one of my all-time top 10 books. …I’ve got really poor taste, don’t I?


Had endless cups of ginger lemon. That ginger sting, nothing quite like it!


Bonus: Found out Batiste is in fact not cruelty free. ARGH! Not so much because there are no options, there are plenty options, but because

a. just because a company claims to be vegan and cruelty free doesn’t mean they actually are (they probably sell in China), and
b. apparently you need to be checking up on companies all the time, because their cruelty free status could change at any time.

Who has the time, energy and presence of mind for that??

Admittedly. The fact that Batiste is on Logical Harmony’s pending list should have tipped me off; maybe they’re not as cruelty free as they pretend to be. If I had checked that list, that is. I just assumed based on what people were saying. So that’s my lesson: Check Logical Harmony more regularly.

Good rule of thumb: when in doubt, stick with Swedish brands. We’re not allowed to test on animals. H&M is obviously rushing to be that one exception (is that something you feel good about…?), but until further notice..

December favorites

I know I may have suggested in this one post to skip the December summary, but I do love the end of month summaries, and anyway, it’s inconsistent to skip a month. Can’t have that, can we?


New track from Casey!

Even more exciting; they’re releasing a new album in March. Hoping there’ll be at least one tour date that works for me. Hoping for Scotland? Well obviously.

Random tracks

You know when Spotify sort of gets stuck, and every morning you open it you have the same tracks in queue? Despite the fact you’ve already been through that very queue. I’ve been stuck on Storm the Sky for weeks. Not that I mind. This one is a favorite:

And my obsession with this (old) Deaf Havana track is bordering on embarrassing:

If I had sense I’d be embarrassed, unfortunately for me, I do not.


I’ve been a bit bored with makeup lately, bored and uninventive, but I recently got back to the halo and I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Very much inspired by this lady:

Speaking of makeup, best quote relating to makeup comes from Jamie Genivieve who argued that “Makeup should make you look unapproachable.” YES! That’s exactly it! I keep saying I want makeup to make me look angry, but unapproachable is much closer to what I really mean.

Dyed hair

Me: Looks v. v. different! Camera: …except for it doesn’t tho.

This time, I went for a dark brown + red combo; I’m planning ahead, preparing to phase out the red. Actually really liked the brown (as in “how is this not my natural color??”). Bonus points for way simpler application than the Manic Panic dye. You use it on dirty, dry hair, and shampoo it afterwards. Leaves no traces of dye, unlike the Manic Panic. Which is nice, for a change.


Beauty Sick by Renee Engeln. OK so this isn’t exactly a favorite, but I want to mention it because I think it has the potential to be somebody’s favorite. The reason it’s not my favorite is I like women who are angry and/or upset. If Engeln is either, she hides it very well. By which I mean, she’s objective, like the researcher she is.

I was also expecting to get a good shouting to in this book, as someone interested in beauty. That is not the case at all. Instead, what Engeln argues is our current obsession with beauty is just out of proportion and we need to dial it back because it is not doing us any good, quite the opposite in fact. But also, beauty is never going to be something the human being is capable of disregarding completely. It’s not within the possibilities of our body.

Despite it not being a favorite, I do recommend giving it a read, especially if you are interested in beauty.

Hatet [English: The hatred] by Maria Sveland. You should know by now that I ♥ Sveland. This book is about present day antifeminism in Sweden, disguised as “equality”, trying to use misdirection, to distract from issue at hand, talking about an imagined “hatred of men” as some sort of threat to society, when in fact the hatred of women is currently, literally, killing women. There are men who genuinely think men are subordinate to women.


Yes. We all know that all positions of power in society are held by women. Women make more money than men. Mm. Yes. We all. Know that. Is the reality. (??????)

Begs the question, are these men and women stupid or mentally ill? Their world does not seem to resemble our world. I’m hoping mentally ill. There’s a chance therapy would work, right? Because reasoning with them, it’s clearly like talking to a wall. Well actually, a wall would be better. A wall is quiet, it gets that saying nothing is sometimes the best thing to do.

So basically, very upsetting book on an important subject, and brilliantly written too.

This also a favorite because it reminded me of a few brilliant people I should be following on social media. (Gudrun Schyman z.B. The fact that she is not the president of Sweden is plenty evidence that we’re severely deficient in the gender equality department. Never mind that we don’t do presidents in Sweden.)


PMS-podden! Hours and hours and hours about PMS! I didn’t know about this one before because??? They talk all about the hormones and try out different methods of reducing PMS, it’s just all sorts of brilliant! Also introduced a new word into my vocabulary menshybris, literally menstruation hubris, although I’d probably translate it as pre-ovulation invincibility because it refers to the feeling of invincibility that you get between the end of your period and ovulation. Or maybe pre-ovulation energy peak? A.k.a. the only time I want to be alive.

I’m really not doing a good job sticking to the subject in this post.

Never mind, moving on!

Vegan/cruelty free

I loved this run-through of different perspectives and ways of reasoning when it comes to cruelty free. What especially strikes a chord with me is as a vegan, you do still go to restaurants that are not vegan, and you ask for the vegan option, and let them know there is a demand for vegan options. This way of reasoning can be applied to companies that are cruelty-free but whose parent company does test on animal. It’s still a vote for the cruelty-free.

Let’s also have a friendly reminder:

Yes. I’m turning into -that- vegan.

Inevitable favorite

Icebugs. What are icebugs? Icebugs is a type boot with warm lining, waterproof and with traction for grip on icy surfaces. 2017 is showing no mercy. This time last year I was still walking around in my Vagabond high top sneakers; it wasn’t that cold, it wasn’t that icy and it definitely wasn’t that wet. This year; all of that, ALL OF IT.

Best music rant in a while

Best retweets

I’ve been noting for a while now that *whinar* (well-known Swedish beauty blogger) is the best at retweets. I love her retweets. They have nothing to do with beauty, unless I’m mistaken, they’re of a more political persuasion. For example:

It reads:

The wealthy need
more money
to want to work.
The poor less
to want to work.
This is liberalism.
This is reprehensible.

(And if anyone’s in the mood for a discussion about how to translate avskyvärt in this context, let me know! I’ve tried a number of different ways of translating, not entirely happy with any of them.)

Apparently, Spotify don’t believe in collective agreements. This is terrible news. I want to know and not know at the same time.

I wouldn’t follow either of these accounts, but I do like being served the best bits.


Is a beautiful thing. I’ve been watching

Holly Exley.
Lily Melrose. Especially loving Lily this month.
Katie Snooks.
Rachel Aust. She’s very. Disciplined? And has PCOS. I’m captivated. Although she seems to have quit mid-way?

Food stuff

Finally got myself some earl grey cream. There isn’t much to brag about where I live, but our tea shop is top notch! This earl grey cream is every bit as good as the fancy earl grey cream I had in Brighton.

Monthly menstrual report

I’ve researched how the menstrual cycle affects exercise. This article is quite informative if you’re interested in knowing more. Not quite what I’m looking for though; I’m looking for specific instructions on how to deal with exercise and different hormonal levels for non-athletes in combination with PCO. So ja, v. v. specific.

At the very least, I’d like to know if I can use Provera to ease some of my issues, or would it help to be back on the pill? ALSO, do I need to up my supplements? Reintroduce magnesium and vitamin D?

There are sources suggesting carb cycling as a solution (my eating disordered brain is all YESYES! DO THAT!); more/regular amount of carbs pre-ovulation, lower intake post ovulation. Which would help with water retention, which, I’m suspecting, is a major reason why, for example, the Wednesday class is a breeze pre-ovulation, and so difficult I have to cheat to get through it post ovulation.

Or maybe I should just go to a different class? Or no class? (Please say no class.)

I.e. PMS was bad this month. I guess the trade-off is the period itself hasn’t been that bad for a while. Obviously not counting the first day of the period when I decided it was a good idea to go to a class at 9 in the morning with extra focus on cardio and I just wanted to die because I had literally no energy. In hindsight, shouldn’t I have been able to guess that would be the case?? Especially since I was also completely depleted of energy the days before the period. Order is not restored magically over night just because you get your period. I should know that.

5 empties

Let’s start with the one I genuinely hate. Because hate is fun. The Clarins Instant Light Brush on Perfector.


There is nothing I like about this. Let’s make a list:

a. The packaging. Even my camera hates it. Trying to get it to focus on it was pretty much impossible. But also, it is an eyesore. Gold and ugly red type. Usch. And also, twist to get product out? When I could just be clicking it out? Pft.

b. The shade. OK so, this was a sample, I didn’t pay for it, so obviously they just sent whatever shade. It’s orange. Too dark for me. Still not the worst thing about it.

c. It’s drying. Gets stuck in your lines. What do you mean perfector? What do you mean light??? Get this thing away from me!

d. It is not cruelty free. It sucks and it’s tested on animals. That’s just great.

Let’s leave this abomination and talk about a few nice products instead!


No7 Airbrush Away Pore Minimising Primer. I do love this thing and I will be repurchasing it. Reduces my shine, appearance of pores, doesn’t break me out. It’s not asking a lot, but most primers struggle to meet these criteria.

No7 Instant Radiance Under Eye Concealer. I don’t understand why this concealer has such bad reviews, it’s my favorite concealer. I’ve already repurchased it multiple times. Lasts all day, easy to apply, not dry, doesn’t emphasize lines, what more could you possibly want? Maybe it’s because I don’t use it to brighten, because my under eyes could not be any brighter if they tried. In fact, it’s the reason I wear concealer, to make them seem less bright and shiny. Can’t be just me?

Pixi Glow Mud Mask. I love this mask. I am looking for an excuse to repurchase. The one thing holding me back: apparently you’re supposed to get cheap clay masks. And there are cheaper ones. Question is, are they as good, really? I would say no, but I need confirmation.

IsaDora Volume Mascara 2.0. I want to love IsaDora, but I don’t. Not that they’re bad, but usually they’re just a bit meh. Like this mascara. It’s alright I guess. Although I shouldn’t complain, it does not irritate my eyes despite not being made for sensitive eyes, so that’s good.

Skincare tag pt 1

This is the first part of a tag created by makeupTIA focusing on skincare.

What is your skin type?

Oily combination, on the oily side.

How do you store your skincare?

In my bathroom, like this:

Let me explain. The box might seem kinda redundant, but. I don’t quite have the space I’d like, and because I use all of these bottles regularly, if they weren’t in a box they’d be falling all over the place. This is a temporary solution until I move. I’m hoping for a bigger cabinet/with more shelves, and if that fails, I’m sure IKEA has some smart solution I can install.

The little bowl is where I keep samples. I’m actually quite surprised that the absolute majority of samples I’ve received are in fact cruelty free. Far as I know, I only have one that isn’t cruelty free and that’s a concealer from Clarins. Haven’t decided what to do with that yet.

Favorite ingredient?

Yes. This is where I feel like a newbie. Can I just say acids in general? I like it when it stings.

Most indulgent product?

I have the Paula’s Choice Radiance Renewal Mask. Indulgent because honestly, who needs this mask? But gawd, I loved the results of it.

This has been an Endless Blog Challenge post.

Experimenting with skincare

I’ve quickly abandoned my environment obsession and replaced it with a keen interest in skincare.

Currently, my skin seems to have two settings: oily or flaky dry. Like WTF?

I care for one reason only: you can’t put makeup on that. Unless you like your makeup patchy. (Did I also have to try just to make sure? You bet I did!)

Enter research skincare.

I have binged skincare by all my favorite YouTubers, added some Caroline Hirons, Under huden med Kakan Hermansson obvs (why didn’t I get on this train sooner?? Her combination of feminism and skincare is beyond brilliant!), and checked cruelty free status of a bunch of brands. It’s pretty much all I do. Read? But why? When I can watch another Pixi cleanser review??

Previously: sorta didn’t watch skincare at all, because what do I care? (Exception: hand creams. Care A LOT. But no one ever talks about that.)

So far though, this has gotten me to a point where I’m more confused than I was before. Certain about one thing only: there’s lots of trial and error to come.

Speaking of which. Went on a wee shopping spree. Sorta wished I’d stumbled on the cheat sheet on Caroline Hirons’ site before that; it’s a what products to spend money on, and what products you can buy for cheap. And grouped and sorted according to age! You have to love that.

Not that I’ve really splurged so far, but I was contemplating an expensive clay mask. However. You can make your own for barely any money! Didn’t even know you could; want to try this asap! Not least because that has to be better for the environment, right??

For similar reasons, I have purchased the camomile cleanser from the Body Shop.


Not sure if it’s a cleanser one should be using if the skin sometimes is on the oily side, but oh, it melts away makeup and makes me forget all about my favorite Superdrug wipes. Also, no wipes=better from an environment point of view. (…apparently didn’t abandon the environment completely..?) Bonus: can keep my contacts in, which I find is frequently a problem with any makeup remover, somehow they get in your eyes an leave a film or some gunk on your contacts.

Unfortunately. Making up for whatever decreased environmental impact the cleanser involves by using C-vitamin peeling pads. People in the know say these specific ones are good. I’m not so sure. Don’t they make me more orange? And sticky? Or is that something else?

What I am most definitely loving tho, is this spatula for mask application.


The feeling of spreading your mask on with this thing is so satisfying.

I’ve settled on this routine as my starting point, but as per usual, I’m not great at following instructions.

I did a wee experiment. Because my face felt sticky, I wanted to see if I was using too much product. So I sorta didn’t moisturize. Until I really felt I needed it and then only with a tiny bit of cream at a time.

Do you know what happens when you do that? (You probably do.)

You get yourself two sizable dry patches, that’s what happens. Skin in general feels kinda tight and itchy too, but that’s a minor problem. By comparison.

And so, mission of the day was to get an exfoliating sponge, preferably an AHA moisturizer, and a good night cream, possibly also an oil for nighttime use. According to online sources, that could maybe work for dry patches.

So I’ve now slathered my poor abused face with the youth concentrate Body Shop gave me, when I bought this serum in oil:


Which I put on top of the concentrate (as instructed, dunno what the concentrate does), serum in oil btw, feels so, so nice on the skin, followed this with a layer of AHA moisturizer:


My skin is not unhappy. Happier than it’s been for weeks actually.

Super excited to see what mood my skin decides to be in tomorrow, if this combo actually was as good as it seems or if it was just for now.

Not quite getting my hopes up. My skin seems just about as fickle as my menstruation.

This week’s favorites


Need to mention thataylaa again because I’m obsessed (did I get the spelling right this time??). She’s quickly become the -only- person I trust when it comes to makeup. Clearly I need this Too Faced foundation:

Product of the week


Budget friendly and cruelty free cream deodorant! I am super happy about it, because I had given up on finding one. You know that law of attraction thing? Don’t apply in my life, the law ruling my life is called the law of given up. The sooner I give up the better the outcome. Found this in a local shop; didn’t even have to order!


I need to mention two:

The new Xcerts release was instant love for me:

It’s like…Amy MacDonald circa This Is the Life

The new Fink album, Resurgam.

Even if there were too many good releases this week too, just like last week. Getting impossible to keep up.



Met a new cat and I’m excited! ..maybe shouldn’t tell people..?


I don’t want to be samey. BUT. Just like the Mustards I’ve been having cold porridge. Unlike the Mustards, I’ve been having cold porridge for a bit over a year now. However, my reason for listing #cooloats as my food of the week is I just made up two new versions that I’m just mad about: carrot cake and apple pie.

The carrot cake one, all packed up in a glassjar with lots of cinnamon and walnuts for work:


I’ll expand on this another time. Not because you particularly want me to I’m sure, but because I need to. I’m in love, OK?

Sometimes YouTube just knows.

I think we’ll leave it at that.

Making life more difficult on purpose

Here’s one of the many things that makes me a bad vegan: I sometimes forget that when purchasing a new product, i.e. from previously unknown brand, you need to first check if they tests on animals.

I don’t always remember this.

Sometimes I’m in a panic and I’m going away and I need to bring a deodorant that takes up no space because only hand luggage, and it’s a liquid und so weiter!

Person in shop gives you a brilliant idea: get a cream deodorant, put in small travel container. Brilliant idea! Do I think further than that? I do not.

Proceeds to use product; falls in love.

Suddenly remember that I don’t know if it’s cruelty-free or not.

The brand is very unhelpfully called Bats.

Try finding any info about that and not just end up on pages about, well, bats.

Solution: turn the damn thing around!

Cederroth. That’s a name I’m familiar with. Creeping suspicion they test on animals.

Aaaand. The internet is not helpful as there are people saying it’s vegan, and there are people saying they include parts of pigs in their products.


But apparently they’re owned by another company (Orkla) who tests on animals because they sell their products in China. Not cruelty-free then.

And, China, I am currently very angry with you. You’ve done so well and come so far when it comes to the environment, how are you still testing on animals???

I could ignore this. I sometimes do. I buy stuff from brands that are owned by companies that do test on animals. I’m starting to think that I might have to rethink this decision.

Well. I always knew that the day would come, I was just going to ease myself into it. Might be time.

So now, not only do I need a CF deodorant, it also has to be cream because I obsessed with cream.

So yea. Making my life more difficult, one day at a time.

Good news: Meow Meow Tweet seems to meet all my criteria, and it’s pretty, and it’s free from nasties.

Goddamn Orkla not only owns Bats, but also a gaggle of other products I’ve been using becuase they used to be CF and easy to come by (Grumme, LdB, Bliw, Salvequick).

So that’s. Great.

You know what I wonder. Since we have the warning labels on cigarettes, couldn’t we get them on products containing/tested on animals. INCLUDING PICTURES. In the name of transparency. Consumers have a right to know exactly what it is they’re buying, right?

Not that I’m entirely sure that it would work on people in general. I just listened to the radio (whyyyyy) where a very clever radio presenter argued that Peta was particularly stupid tweeting the following:

She argued that because EVERYONE (yes, she said everyone) thinks bacon is tasty, Peta was stupid for tweeting this.


I have no hope for humanity. Literally none. We deserve whatever hell we get. All of it.

Soo…pigs deserve to die because EVERYONE likes the taste of bacon?


Excellent argument. Especially the everyone part.

I mean I get that it might be hard to give bacon up if you like bacon. And that’s a big IF. I have on good authority that there are meat eaters who do not like bacon, SO, even excluding those of us avoiding the decaying flesh… If there was ever a time where not all men! was appropriate, this is it.

But sure, there are people with a bacon habit making it difficult to give up. I get that.

What Peta is doing though, is they’re assuming you have empathy, and if they provide you with knowledge about where bacon comes from and what it does to your health and our planet you might change you mind.

The problem here is not that Peta is stupid, the problem is that they are under the faulty assumption that people eat bacon because they lack knowledge, not because they lack empathy and/or compassion. I’d like to think that too. However. People don’t have empathy, they don’t care and they don’t want to change. Clearly.

I get that too, that general mindset. What does it matter to me if we ruin the planet? I don’t have kids. Go right ahead, make life for future generations miserable. I’m sure they deserve it.

…still not getting why the pigs have to suffer because we’re a stupid race. Or well. I guess that is the very reason.

Kinda upset that this the radio presenter is paid by tax money, and that no one contradicted her stupidity and lack of knowledge in the least.

But then, tax money is wasted on plenty other things. Politicians in general being an excellent example.

So now I can’t ever listen to the radio again. Too upsetting. Because this presenter is on all (and unlike her, when I say all, I mean all) of the very few shows I’ve previously been able to stand. (It might be the case she was already annoying, and this was just the final straw.)

I dunno why I’m complaining about that really. Just means more Korn for me.

I have a lot of questions #4

Can I has another cup of tea!??!?

Why is quinoa advertised as a great source of protein? Far as I can tell it’s the exact same protein content as pasta. Not the right quinoa? I’m confused.

How do everyone else listen to music? Everyone else: This is my favorite band! They played this great track when I went to see them live, never heard before! …but the track is from 2011 and v. v. popular + it’s your favorite band? (According to Spotify, and why would Spotify lie?) I don’t understand. How is this your favorite band??

Where can I find a cruelty-free toothpaste that doesn’t turn my lips into dry flakes? I’m at my wits’ end. I’ve tried just about all brands I can get my hands on (not counting the ones that were not bad that I got in the UK; for obvious reasons I can’t keep buying toothpaste in the UK).

…when can I go back to Scotland? Yeah. That Scotland vlog I just watched was a mistake. I need to save my monies, not go to Scotland. I have no business being in Scotland.

Is there a barley shortage? I never find barley in the story anymore. Not happy about it, because it is a favorite.

Why is there no tracking rage function on Clue? I want to track irrational rage! I have lots of it. Also rational rage, but this irrational rage. It’s getting old being furious because your headphones are in a tangle, or it’s raining, or can’t get jacket off quickly enough because HOT. For example. Also would like to track not cravings, but rather when you want to eat ALL THE THINGS ALL THE TIME.

What is Linkin Park even doing? What do they want and where do they come from? The new album. So many questions. Also: would their sound improve if someone introduced them to saaaayy..the latest Architects record? I’d like to think so. But you know, who knows?!??

Whyy is Nick Cave playing the Globe? Why?? I’ve finally come around and do want to go. But this Globe thing, it’s a problem. I don’t like it.

Is Glasvegas ever going to release a new record? (Did I ask this qustion before? Still wondering tho!)

Is it just me, or is the latest Korn record actually really good? Yea, yea, I know it was released last year. It’s not as if I actively follow Korn. I mean it’s not Tura Satana, but you know, as close as it gets.

Is there anything a person could do to make Thrice play Sweden? Anything??

OK then.

I think I’ve managed to illustrate the point my sister was making on Wednesday, that really, I’m the main character of High Fidelity. I don’t have many thoughts that are not related to listening to music.
