War against the ants

For the past month I’ve had ants coming into my home near the front door. They seem to have nested in the smallest of places. Mainly coming through the gap between the floor and the wall, this small little gap appears to be their home.

It first looked like bits of brick dust, masonry being pulled out from underneath.

So the war begins! I have the granular stuff already brought from past years. That powder stuff is horrible, messy and doesn’t work well in my opinion and feel that it should be banned because it is so useless.

So I spread around Ant Stop! granules, maybe my pack is a bit old now, didn’t seem to be effective as it normally is. So on to the ant traps, boy how these fellas crawl out and die!

With granules you can hoover them up along with the ants while i like to say, die you little bustards die!!

Nescafé Gold Caramel Latte review

I have to say, I brought this because I like caramel lattes from places like Costa Coffee and Starbucks. However this is not like those! As you pour the near white powder into a cup I could tell there isn’t much coffee in the product. It froths up well enough, but the taste…

It has this powdery artificial taste you can’t really taste any coffee, I hardly taste any caramel! Even the ingredients doesn’t specify that it even has any caramel in it!!

I went and put a spoon of normal coffee in to try and strengthen it up, but no, still thought this wasn’t very nice at all.

I really do like their cappuccino know, so I don’t know why this is such a fail, maybe I will give the rest to my dad to see if he likes it!!

Meeting Shae Sterling and Alien Addiction review.

When I was in Los Angeles in March I was with my brother at a café in Abbot Kinney Blvd, as soon as we had finished we came out and started speaking to two people who just turned up there in a taxi.

One was a girl who was a video blogger from New Zealand, the other was a film director also from New Zealand. This director went by the name of Shae Sterling and said in a few months that his film Alien Addiction would be showing at the London film festival at the Prince Charles Cinema in London.

Well, sometime later! When I was back home in London I got myself a ticket online to go see the film.

It was an interesting film, it started off very B movie with the introduction of the main character and his friends mouthing rather crass humour. The intro also supplied overhead drone video capture of a quite scenic peaceful part of the world.

For me the film didn’t really start until the introduction of the aliens as they crash land to Earth. Enter two aliens rather reminiscent of the film Coneheads with Dan Aykroyd. They came with some device that could convert objects to a smokable substance. It got even weirder when the aliens started to convert shit, smoking it and getting high. I couldn’t quite get my mind around this trip, but it did make me laugh.

The next part of the film was an investigative reporter obsessed with alien hunting. He and his companion find and try to capture the aliens, but his already failing reputation takes a hit. No need to say anymore, you will have to watch the movie if you want to know the ending which has a bit of a twist.

After the movie finished there was a Q&A then I went over to say hello Shae Sterling remembered me and gave me a big bear hug.
