Walkerville Honest Lager
Like many a millennial, I enjoy a good craft brew. My taste for dark beers waxes and wanes...right now I'm on a lager kick. The local brewery, Walkerville Brewery, has an excellent lager called Honest Lager. It's refreshing! I do wish they came in regular 355mL cans, though. Sometimes 473mL makes me a little too sleepy to do anything productive after work.
The HillsAnthony came into Windsor last week and
The kids from The Hills are the same age as I am, so it's fun to look back on fashion of 2005-2006. It's a lot uglier than I remember it. It's also slightly disturbing that all their underaged drinking isn't acknowledged at all. I think the most enjoyable thing is realizing how far we've all come from being 20 year olds. I'm not a rich kid from southern California, but I -- like a lot of these celebs -- am now settled with a good job and a wedding ring.
Hair Straightening Brush
As it turns out, the brush StraightFix sells is some sort of generic brush that is rebranded and sold by several different companies. I found the exact same brush for as low as $12USD. I decided to spend a bit more and go with a reputable Amazon store, and got one for $20USD ($25CAD) with Prime shipping. Score.
I've tried it out a few times and it works really well! If you're used to using a flat iron, I would describe the brush as doing about 90% of the work in about 5 minutes. It's good enough that you can go from wild, unstyled hair to something presentable in 5 minutes. It won't be perfect, but it'll be decent.
Video of Deer Screaming
It was hard to decide on a photo for this one, but I went with my main obsession as a 3-5 year old kid: good old Alf.
This photo of my brother and I accurately depicts being a child in 1990. Oh, there I am in his hand-me-downs again!
On Wednesday, after trying for 3 or 4 days and at least as many attempts, I finally did and man, did it feel good. My 12 year old self would be proud.
P.S. If you're looking for other videos I have been obsessed with at one time or another, look no further:
Cracks me up every time.
Every election time, I am reminded of this excellent parody.
I always loved this even in the 90s, but I watched it a lot when I found out I was going to be an aunt, too. :)
Probably my #1 favourite.
This is real, and you probably should turn the volume down if there are children present...
This one is too good not to watch.
Anthony and I still quote this, nearly 6 years on.
My favourite commercial.
