I’m addicted… Murakami!

GAAAAH!! I’m addicted (ADDICTED!) to the works of the Japanese author Haruki Murakami!
(Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haruki_Murakami )

Obviously I don’t know Japanese, so I’ve read some of his books in Swedish and English. (Typically when reading translated novels I prefer to read in English since they have less grammatical errors)
Kafka on the Shore (in English)
1Q84 (currently reading in English)
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle (in Swedish)

I LOVE all of these!!! If you want to read something amazing and spectacular and wonderful and just AH! then I would definately recommend Murakami to you πŸ™‚ I especially love how he keeps the story going even when it seems as though nothing important is happening – you won’t get bored!!!

Now, since I haven’t had the chance to read in a few days (due to an exam), I’ll get my butt to a sofa and drown myself into the weird year of 1Q84! πŸ˜€

A banana a day keeps everything away!

I’ve recently come to like bananas quite a lot. A few months back I would have told you I can’t stand the feeling of chewing them, I don’t like the smell, the taste, the anything of them! Well, all of a sudden that’s changed… I’m not quite sure what sparked this change in me, but I do know that it’s a change for the better!
I actually have a banana in my schoolbag atm waiting to be consumed!
I’ve come to find that bananas keep you full for soooo much longer than bread or cereals! I can survive for hours on just a banana, where as I’d feel hungry aΒ΄gain after about 30 minutes of eating my bread/cereal. Also bananas contain a lot of sugar, which gives you a quick pick-me-up breakfast if you’re in a hurry or just too lazy to grab anything more fancy… (me and my explanations)

… (I should be studying some stupid driving-stuff now… I’ve finished half of one chapter πŸ˜› )

Anyway – if you want to know some of the many health benefits of eating bananas check out the following links (I’m using a school computer, so I can’t promise they will come up as links… also, some of the “facts” will be the same – we’re talking about the same banana!!) :

And of course you can do some amazing google-work yourself πŸ™‚

Bananas are truly awesome and I definately see why monkeys eat them πŸ˜‰
