My brother is a bad influence

Whenever Jake comes round, we end up eating junk food. The kid's got great taste and he always ends up picking something I should've had. I should've had the ACE from Sprinkles Gelato.


Brighton Cereal Café

I love cereal. It's one of my favourite foods. I've wanted to try Cereal Killer since they opened but the opportunity has never arisen.

Now there's a cereal café in Brighton (nothing to do with Cereal Killer) so went there for something to eat and it was most enjoyable. They've got some brilliant combos and some interesting boxes so will definitely be going back.

This concept is not without its haters - people like to remind you how cheap cereal is, and that having it at home is much cheaper. Like you can't do that with any restaurant, coffee shop, ice cream place. Anything really. Love haters.


Weekend

Tabitha and I spent the day together yesterday and it was a lot of fun. We did pretty much everything we could think of, even in spite of the rain.

Today has been very different. Very difficult. I've been in a terrible mood and I spent a little time drawing and writing and messing with photos and felt a little…not better but…different and not so negative. But now it's Sunday evening and I feel like I wasted the afternoon being a grumpy piece of shit.

I did finish my book though. I am really into ebooks at the moment but I can't get used to the fact that they end 40 pages early. The last pages are always ads or the first chapter of another book. Not cool.


Strawberries

Charlotte bought some strawberries. I don't really like strawberries but they do look nice.


Bagels

Charlotte and I love to watch food shows. A little late to the party, we have been enjoying them on a website called YouTube. Perhaps you've heard of it. YouTube is a brilliant platform for food shows. I don't know why I'm telling you this; you probably already know.

We especially like Binging With Babish, Jun's Kitchen, The Pizza Show on Munchies and Hot Ones (linked the Vince Staples one because he's the best) on First We Feast. I also like Matty Matheson. I do not like Action Bronson, and I don't want to hear about how brilliant he is.

In spite of the network, we've been watching a show called Worth It on Buzzfeed where two guys and a cameraman (3 guys, really - the cameraman's cameos are some of the best bits of the show) try a cheap, mid-priced and outrageously expensive version of a food.

Last night, we watched one about bagels and it made us both really want bagels, so we went to Bagelman and got some bagels (we didn't eat them all - there's 3 left for breakfast so don't give me any shit) to dip in olive oil za'atar. It was really nice. For a while anyway - I found za'atar to be quite unpleasant after a short time. But dipping good bread in olive oil is always a win.


I realise this has been all food the last few posts but this is essentially all I've had time for the last week, unless you want to see pictures of me cycling in the dark or staring at my laptop screen.
