Hanson - Thinkin’ Bout Something
I wish more people would give these guys a chance. If this song doesn’t get your foot tapping then there’s something wrong with you. Also, bonus points for cute Blues Brother’s video!
Shone: Piano Wire No. 12
Listening to Shone today, I love their creepy sound. I also finally got around to following up with Merch Direct about my record bundle I ordered from them last year that never arrived and they’re reshipping it, so I’m super happy! (Their customer support is fab!)
Disney Princess don’t need a man
Manchester Orchestra - Top Notch
I’m so excited for their new album Cope to drop!
Architecture in Helsinki - Like It Or Not
AiH have such a fun sound that kind of make me want to prance around like an eejit (more so than usual anyway). They’re vibrant and I think it’s a good song for today since (currently) the sun is shining with the promise of longer days and slightly less rain!
Tegan & Sara: Everything Is Awesome
I kind of hate myself for this being my song of the day, but EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!
So myself, Katnip & Damo were chatting on IRC earlier about our eating habbits, as Katnip is moving to a more proteiny diet now (I’ve been on one since about November).
I was going to write a blog post about my typical eating habits, but got sidetracked by this. If you’re trying to watch what you eat, it’s so important to actually read the labels of the different brands!
So I’m absolutely in love with Muller Light’s Lemon Greek style yoghurt. My PT had mentioned that greek yoghurt was better so I gave this one ago and now eat it as dessert, fuck it’s good. I’m sure there are much healthier substitutes (like natural greek yoghurt with actual fruit, but fuck that!).
So in the shop one day I picked up a Glenisk organic blueberry greek yoghurt (which isn’t that nice and ended up throwing most of it out because it wasn’t ‘worth’ it). I didn’t read the label, just assuming that it would be about the same as the Muller light one (if not better, because based on the packaging and the use of the word oganic, I thought it could only be better than Muller Light - I’m a gullible consumer really).
But here’s a comparison:
Muller Light Greek Lemon Yoghurt (120g serving) vs Glenisk Low Fat Blueberry Greek Yoghurt (125g serving)
Calories: 83 vs 148
Sugars: 11.0 g vs 18.5g
Fat: 0.2 g vs 3.8g
Saturates: 0.1g vs 2.4g
Protein: 7.6g (per 120g serving) vs 4.2g (per 100g serving )
Tastiness: extremely vs not really
I thought this was really interesting for such similar products. I’m by no means a nutritionist - maybe the Muller Light is processed and missing nutritional value vs Glenisk’s organic goodness, I don’t know!
So I made the 32 skater training squad for team Ireland! It hasn’t really sunk in yet, at all!
Last time there was try outs for the Irish team, in June 2011, I had yet to play my first bout (it was an intraleague bout the following week). I didn’t get to try out for the team, but I did get to attend one of their training sessions before the World Cup and I remember wanting so badly to make the team next time.
At the 2011 World Cup in Toronto, I cheered really loud for my DRD league mates and the other girls in green and white. We had pompoms, shamrock tights and an Irish flag. It was so exciting watching my team mates on the international stage and I wanted to be on the team so badly!
And here I am, 32 months after the first ever Ireland roller derby try outs and I’ve earned a spot in the last 32. I’m here with ten of my Dublin team mates who I couldn’t be more proud of! *gush* Next step: work my way into the top 20 to skate in Texas!
(I feel like this post wouldn’t be finished if i didn’t make a 32 skaters representing the 32 counties of Ireland reference, but, it’s so damn cheesy that I kind of don’t want to…)
