Of Intergalactic ice confectionaries, New Order and the future that never was...
We are in the midst of an angry heatwave and there is much sweating and gnashing of teeth but there is an answer...Zooper Doopers!!! They come in 16 cosmic flavours including Fairy Floss Forcefield, Bubblegum quasar, deep space Lime, Jaffa Jetstream, Toffee Apple taser, Strawberries & Cream cluster, galactic grape, Rasberry rocket, solar Shebert and many more. I know that totally sounded like an advertisement but it was just me expressing my love for the little tubes of frozen sugar water...I thought they were a relatively obscure product but on googling them I found a heated and often amusing discussion/debate on the best and worst flavours on inthemix.com. In my humble opinion the best is grape and the worst Beaming Banana although Jaffa Jetstream was pretty foul as it tasted like chocolate as well as orange which isn't the best flavour for what is essentially icy cordial. Sigh I don't believe how much I just talked about ice blocks. In other news I've gotten into New Order their best song being Blue Mondays of course they are in no way as good as Joy Division but I'm enjoying them nonetheless.
One thing before I stop typing...does anyone wish they lived in the future of the 50's??
I'm really getting into the whole retro-futurism thing at the moment. It's really interiesting to see peoples depictions and predictions from different eras...they're way cooler than current foretellings (no pun intended) unfortunately I think that's because modern predictions are more accurate..in other words the future will probably be real boring...especially for this blog. It tires me what do other people think about PERMAMENT DELETION??
I think it's time for a nap.
