This week I have re-kindled my love of coffee. Specifically black coffee with two real spoons of sugar. I've taken quite a liking to waking up and having a browse of the internet with a nice cup of coffee. The above illustration is a pretty accurate picture of a morning. I started to drink my coffee black when I worked in my previous job as an administrator at a Muslim company. During Ramadan there was never fresh milk in the fridge (because of the lack of need) and for my one cup a day I didn't see the need to buy any so I just took the plunge, had my coffee without it and fell in love. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't say no to a nice latte here and there but black coffee is the way forward. Far more sophisticated if I say so myself.
This weekend has been lovely. Cara-Lee came to visit from North Wales and it was so nice to see her again. Cara was the first friend I made at the university - in fact, we were friends before we even arrived thanks to the Facebook group for freshers. We instantly clicked online and it was the same when we eventually met. We lived together in first year and she is genuinely an amazing girl. We spent Saturday afternoon in the Student Union with our other old neighbour B and it was great to have a laugh and talk about our old memories.
|L-R: Me, Bianca and Cara.|
Gary: What're you up to, babe?
Me: Watching Wall.E (smug with a smile after the previous attempt).
Gary: Hang on? What's wrong with the sound?
Me: What? Nothing, why?
Gary: Babe, you know this film is meant to have speech in it, right?
Me: But it hasn't had speech all the way through?
At this point, Gary wouldn't let me watch the end. I'd been watching it for an hour and not realised that the sound was broken and only the background noises and music were playing. I thought it was meant to be that way because they were robots and couldn't speak... Blonde moment, right? Anyway - I've eventually watched and fallen in love with Wall.E! I can see it becoming a regular favourite.
