  1. I feel like I need a cigarette after some of these Black Butler episodes & I don't even smoke! My goodness!!!

  2. I just found out that butler cafes are a thing in Japan & that there is an actual anime cafe not too far from where I live. And OF COURSE these things would be revealed in the middle of a pandemic where just about everyone is on lock down. Figures! 

  3. It's dark, it's stormy, so of course you know this is the perfect time to start watching Black Butler!

  4. Welp, looks like it's about to start storming something fierce in my area. 

  5. Tomorrow morning's smoothie prep is done. Trying a new blend: sweet potato, beets, parsnips, carrot, banana, arugula, mango, & pineapple sprinkled with flaxseed. Truth be told, some of these smoothies don't taste the best but I'm heck bent & determined to have the Fort Knox of immune systems against this COVID-19 crud. I'll probably have it with a few slices of avocado toast, an egg white omelet, & maybe an apple for some extra fiber. Working overtime these next few days so I need some good fuel.

      I really should, lol!

  6. Did someone say delicious homemade chicken fajitas? 🌮

  7. Thanks to @Ohiotaku and @Illusion of Terra, I have recently discovered the joy that is Somali and the Forest Spirit!

      it's quite alright, nothing outstanding but something to watch just for enjoyment and visuals

      This will be a nice break from all the other anime I watch that have such heavy scary themes. Even if there are some scary elements in this show it will still definitely be lighter than some of the others I've watched recently.

      yeah that's for sure 😂 

  8. The second episode of Boogiepop Phantom showcases a unique artistic expression of how grief, shame, guilt, etc. can manifest in a person's life. I'm diggin' this show so far. 

  9. Shiki is done. Looks like Boogiepop Phantom is up next!

      Are you doing the original or the newer one (Boogiepop & Others)?

    2. RuthisianCodex

      RuthisianCodex

      I'm doing the original. I jut watched the 1st episode & then went to bed. It's interesting so far.

      The story can be hard to follow at times. But you’ve watched Paranoia Agent, so you should be fine.

  10. I've gotta say it...watching a show as scary as Shiki during a devastating pandemic at night is probably not the best idea for someone with an active, vivid imagination.

      Oh yeah, forgot how they thought it was some sorta disease killing people at first. Turns out it was vampires 😈

      Congrats on making it through

      I appreciate that. Just 2 episodes left. I'm pretty impressed with myself seeing as how scared I've been of this series. There really is such a thing as animation that is *too* good. 

    3. Nyxnine

      I want to see this now. Its not everyday - in my opinion, to find a good scary anime. 

  11. Just 6 more episodes for me to finish Shiki. *takes a deep breath* I can do this!

  12. Looking up some really yummy recipes because I'm determined to have the healthiest, most epic breakfasts ever darn it! 

  13. These little evening strolls of mine are becoming the best part of my day...during a pandemic. Because why the heck not? And before anyone freaks out, yes, yes, I am keeping my distance from everyone else lol.

  14. The weather here is nice, so I decided to get my steps in at the park across the street. Lots of people out but we all kept our distance & you know what? It wasn't nearly as awkward as I thought it would be. 

  15. Cookies and milk before bed is officially the best 🍪 🥛

  16. Went for a drive today just to get out & clear my head. My city is beginning to look like a ghost town with businesses closing down left & right & very few people out & about. This is just becoming very surreal & extremely worrying. Hope everyone on this forum is doing well.

      I agree it is surreal to see. Don't let it get to you. Just stay safe and healthy and keep those around you safe by giving space :)

      I'm pretty much staying away from everyone at this point. I'm young & healthy but it would destroy me if I got COVID-19 & passed it to someone who has a health issue & they ended up hospitalized or worse. 

    3. Nyxnine

      Nyxnine

      Yes it would suck. But, at some point we can't control everything. Just keep doing you :)

       

  17. Alright, so the skin from the red grapes that I used in my smoothie earlier gave it a slightly bitter after taste so I'm not sure I'll be doing that again. I did however pick up some frozen diced avocado, mango, & pineapple & plan to mix those together with some nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt, a dash of cinnamon & tumeric, a teaspoon of chia seeds, & a little skim milk to thin it out a bit. Should be pretty good. I'm determined to make these healthy smoothies a fixture in my everyday eating habits.

    1. RuthisianCodex

      I just tried out the avocado, mango, pineapple & it is absolutely delicious! So smooth, creamy, & slightly sweet with no weird after taste. This combo is a keeper!

      the skins of different fruits are actually quite healthy even though they taste bitter, which I also dislike. props to you though for taking the time to make these things. I'd purchase some if it wouldn't take weeks to be shipped, might give me the essential vitamins I am probably lacking 😂 

    3. RuthisianCodex

      RuthisianCodex

      Yeah, I try not to take the skin off my fruits if I can avoid it because you're right, there are so many good nutrients in there. And normally grapes don't give me any issues but it could have been the fact that these were frozen that had something to do with it. I'm all about boosting my immune system these days so I'm getting all the natural vitamins that I can.

  18. Got a new frozen fruit blend for this weekend's smoothies & at 1st I didn't know what to think of how good peaches, pineapple, red seedless grapes, & kiwi would taste together. Now that I've tried it however, I must say that it's pretty good. Not one of my favorites but it'll work.

      That all sounds yummy. You should add basil seeds (soaked) :) it give Nice's texture to drinks.

  19. Started playing Tiny Bunny, new Russian indie horror visual novel last night against my better judgement. I laid in bed for about an hour before I could get to sleep, second guessing every shadow on my wall & every noise in the house. One of these days I'll learn I guess. In regards to the game itself, terrific art, animation, & sound effects.

      I've said it before, you are some kind of masochist, otherwise I don't know why you would keep on consuming those horror things 😂 

  20. That awkward moment when you download a new scary game & then have to pep talk yourself into actually playing it...

  21. Wow, we're having another major storm in my area tonight & the thunder is literally *booming* outside my window. The flashes of lightning are very bright too. Mother Nature, is it too much to ask for you to just NOT right now? Sheesh!

  22. More and more businesses in my area have either started adjusting their hours, reducing staff, or just flat out closing their doors for good. The long term financial damage that COVID-19 is doing is scary enough to make our worst night terrors want to sleep with the lights on...

      Its been really bothering us in Canada too. The place I am managing....we are debating closing fully. Right now we cut our hours and have our staff working as smaller groups. The clinic I was working at before, they closed all their stores except one clinic where they are taking emergencies only. I want our place to close. I'm not going to lie, it makes me nervous I am going to get others sick in my family from one mistake seeing others. This whole situation sucks its just confusing as to what to do. 

  23. Major severe storms moving into my area at the moment because why the heck not?

      Demi-chan wa Kataritai, aka Interviews with Monster Girls.  Also on Crunchy.  Worth the watch.

  24. Tonight's dinner will be oven roasted turkey cutlets w/herb gravy, peas & carrots, & garlic mashed potatoes. 

  25. Very curious how international travel will change in the coming months after the initial impact of Covid-19. People are assuming that flights & vacations will be super cheap because companies will be trying to make money back but that may not necessarily be the case if a global recession happens. Even if it doesn't, it's very difficult for service based industries to recoup big losses even with government assistance so some prices may actually go up. Who knows?
