Something For The Weekend

Something to eat:
Zesty Vegetable Stirfry
Recipie from The Resourceful Cook
I made this meal yesterday for myself and my fiancé and it is so yummy! I would suggest making double of the sauce as we both felt it could have been even yummier with more zestiness. As vegetarians we have lots of vegetables in the fridge, but even if you're not a veggie this is a great and yummy way to both use up vegetables and eat something really good for you!

Something to read:
and a really gorgeous Tumblr full of love for the written word called:

Something to watch:

Paprika is one of my absolute favourite films and most of the soundtrack, bar one or two obscure songs, feature in the writing soundtrack for my second novel. I highly recommend watching the film, especially if you like weird, arty films, anime or just awesome films like I do. The blu-ray is only £6.49 on Amazon, and the DVD is only £3.97. How can you say no to that?

Spoilers below!
"Based on a novel by the noted Japanese science fiction writer Yasutaka Tsutui, the brilliant and unsettling feature Paprika continues director Satoshi Kon's exploration of the disturbingly permeable boundaries between dreams and reality. Techno-geek Kosaku Tokita invented the DC Mini to allow therapists to enter a patient's dreams and explore his unconscious, but an evil cabal uses the Mini to create a mass nightmare that causes multiple suicides. Psychotherapist Atsuko Chiba uses her alter-identity, "dream detective" Paprika, to intervene. Entering the nightmare, she witness a bizarre parade of appliances, toys, and kitsch objects: all of her intelligence and imagination are needed to escape this nightmare and its perpetrators. As he did in Millennium Actress and Paranoia Agent, Kon effortlessly carries the audience between reality and fantasy, confirming his reputation as one of the most talented and interesting directors working in animation today."
