I got nothing.
My brother hadn’t seen Shrek, so obviously made him watch it.
Meh. I don’t even have an excuse – I spent a week reading on the beach and all. I just don’t feel like it?
Can we talk about how cute Dumplin’ was? And how it’s the best role I’ve seen Jennifer Aniston in? And how the fat girl got the cute guy (not the other way around)? The main character is Danielle Macdonald, who was also the lead in Patticake$, which I quite enjoyed as well. We have Disney+ for free until November, so obviously had to re-watch some Marvel stuff.
Also this was nothing spectacular, but I did go twice a week, every week (except the first when I was lying on the beach).
Wow, the Orville! While the first season was fine, this second one was really good.
Mute was meh (yes, OK, I watched it because Paul Rudd is in it and he’s adorkable). 13th Amendment was an eye-opening documentary. The great takeaway – Katherine Ryan! Man, she’s now in my top list of stand-ups. Watch her!
Well, the squats make me hate Stronglifts. I guess I will try something new?
I watched Katherine Ryan’s “Glitter Room” special on Netflix and laughed out loud several times. That’s no small feat, I usually only laugh on the inside. Watch it!
Also watched Amy Schumer’s Netflix special and it was.. ok. I enjoyed the above one far more. (Look, I find Amy the funniest when she gets critical, rather than the Moran-style “don’t be scared of me” feminist approach, and she did that for a total of like 2-3 minutes. The rest was quite “meh”.)
Yeah! I went to the gym! More than once! Also had to wait to use equipment (for the first time in the new gym). Apparently Wednesdays are chest days? I’m now dislike squats (only cause it’s getting heavy for me? Maybe), but quite like benching. I’m sure that’ll change soon enough though.
Also wore leggings to the gym for the first time ever (no, let me stress – I wore leggings in public for the first time ever. turns out it’s very uneventful).

Well, look at that! Apparently I just read in Swedish now? (The last book was also in Swedish, just used the English one when logging it.) At least I’m reading.
Can we talk about how fun Derry Girls is? I love them all, but especially sister Michael. I have already watched season 1 more than once, and am being really careful not to finish season 2 too soon.
Can we also talk about how horribly Big Bang Theory ended? For like a whole season, there was a recurring discussion between Leonard and Penny because he wanted kids and she not. Then in the last episode of the show she has suddenly just changed her mind? And it’s just explained like “before I didn’t, but now I do”? Is it that provocative that a women doesn’t want kids? Geez.
It was a cute (Netflix produced) movie, but could they not have found a cuter male lead? Yes, sure, shallow comment, but I mean it.
So so. Obviously already told that I didn’t work out at all during vacation, but I have been a couple of times since we got back. Not yet back to normal schedule, but I’ll get there!
Ok, let’s pretend it’s 3 weeks ago, and then read this post.
Two measly books! (And the first one I’ve read before, but Lisa recommended the reader of the audio version, so I thought I’d give it a go, and made it through.) Slump month.
OK. For someone who likes to watch 1 show at the time, this seems like a mess, but it’s actually working out alright. Designated Survivor surely took an odd turn from season 1 to season 2, but I’m alright with it. It reminds me (a little bit!) of the West Wing now. The Big Bang Theory also picked up in the last season! I’ve actually laughed a few times now, which didn’t happen in the previous 2-3 seasons. Queer Eye is just nice to watch if you’ve had a crap day, or you know, read the news.
When I grew up we didn’t have the channels where Fresh Prince was on, but we were thrilled when we managed to catch an episode when visiting grand-mom. Now it’s on Netflix, so I want to see what I missed. And Quicksand is based on a book I really enjoyed. And the author’s dad highly recommended the adaptation. (Like, they didn’t ask him because he’s her dad, but he’s a famous author and criminilogist in Sweden, so it was a side-question during an interview.)
Ok, so. I’ve mentioned the first two earlier (recommend both!). A star is born was underwhelming, but maybe my expectations were set too high based on the hype. Bohemian Rhapsody was quite entertaining. Ex Machina was good. However, the by far favorite was A simple favor. I mean it has Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively as the main characters!
This month has been a bit on and off with the workouts, mainly as I finally had enough of the old gym and how busy it is (only took close to 6 months). Found a new gym and have done a trial week there to see if I like it (I do!). Hopefully July will be more consistent in this area.
