From masks to deliveries to video calls, we live in unprecedented times
This month has probably been one of the toughest of my life yet I’ve also laughed a lot, adopted a hedgehog, and grown even closer to my friends and family. I opened a bottle of dessert wine two nights ago because 1) I ran out of real wine ages ago (and am too cheap to pay R300 for a bottle of wine that usually costs R80, also don’t want to buy on the black market) and 2) I really needed a drink. It’s a fancy Waterford dessert wine and they dry the grapes on hay. It’s delicious but unlike regular wine, you can only have a little. #LockdownLifeProblems
Some news to make you seem cool when you’re waiting for someone to join the Zoom call that was supposed to start 5 minutes ago
🎙️ Joe Rogan announces exclusive $100m Spotify dealand Spotify adds $1.7 billion in market cap in under 30 minutes. I do sometimes listen to his podcast if it’s a celeb I like or a topic I’m interested in. What I really love are his standup specials. You can check both of them out on Netflix.
⏰ YouTube has a bedtime reminder that’s currently available on Android and will soon be available on iOS. You set a bedtime and it will blow up your phone so that you aren’t tempted to watch anymore baby monkey riding on a pig videos. It’s actually just a reminder and like a regular alarm clock, it also has a snooze button.
People are like “how are these people refusing to wear masks in stores” but when I worked in retail people would regularly take a dump in the dressing rooms so what I’m saying is maybe lower your expectations for humanity
I love checking out what is trending on Twitter. Sometimes I’ll click on something and wonder why it was trending. Usually, I am very wrong. This week Smeg was trending and it was all because of one tweet.
Being single can be painful, today I wanted to surprise someone in bed with a cup of cappuccino and I just remembered I am single. pic.twitter.com/M4nt0lYxaJ
The comments were a gift that kept on giving. If you’re fancy would you be drinking instant Cappucino? Surely your countertop isn’t set out like that because how would you get to the sugar behind the liquor? It’s interesting that all the liquor labels are facing the camera. You know perfectly legitimate comments.
Do you think it’s possible to own Smeg appliances and not always include them in pictures?
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
