When you need a bit of a kick and an energy boost, nothing works better than matcha. Trust me, I know. It wakes you up and makes you feel bouncy. Which is not like me at all, but there you go.
There is also a film which always gives me a bit of a boost. It’s ‘Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure’.
Surprised? You shouldn’t be. It’s simply excellent, party on!
If you have never watched it (to which I can only say ‘Bogus. Heinous. Most non-triumphant’), it’s a story about two rock star wannabes who are about to flunk their finals. Their history teacher gives them a last chance to prepare a presentation on how a famous historical personality would react to modern times. Unexpectedly they get help from Rufus, Emissary from the Future. They meet many important historical figures, including Napoleon and Socrates, experience the most bogus adventure and manage to pull of their presentation.
I don’t really care about some historical facts not being exactly right. I laugh every time I watch it and it always make me feel better. There are so many things that make me giggle – for instance when Bill quotes Socrates: “The only true wisdom consists in knowing that you know nothing”, to which Ted responds: ‘That’s us, dude’. Or Sigmunt Freud responding to most questions by :’Tell me about your mother’.
So have matcha drink and watch ‘Bill and Ted’ and be excellent to each other…
