ED | Redbull Summer Edition: Cactus Fruit

redbull summer edition cactus fruit energy drink review apzvalga

I’ve recently learned that future flavors of energy drinks in Lithuania can be spotted sooner by following German social media of said drinks. So I was, patiently awaiting the Summer Edition of Redbull, the Cactus Fruit.

In a darker shade of green with red letters indicating the Cactus Fruit flavor, and a similar red shade of liquid inside, this Redbull is not as daring as the few previous we had, not as unusual as all of those combinations. But it’s interesting and worth a try anyway.

It may not be mind blowing or even very good if you’re not into this type of sweet and sour combo, but it serves well to remind of warmer days and warmer places. For me, at least.

4 out of 5, will drink more once replaying Shadow of Tomb Raider.

The mysterious Gravesend, Kent, UK

As you know or don’t, I’ve returned after my kinda-vacation in the UK, Gravesend. The last time I visited that town, I loved it, so it was easy to adapt right back in. To be honest, now I feel bad back home, everyone’s broody and angry for no actual reason. Cultural shock at home? With luck I’ll go back there soon enough.
Anyways! From the moment I arrived – the general things went great. Across the street – a Tesco store, thus – sushi (it’s decent. Not good, but really decent). Right beside it – Co-Operative, thus – blueberry RockStar. Bed – big and soft and nice! And, lets see… one that gives three free books, then two which only sell second-hand books, one second-hand store that has books by the bus stop, two more by the home and two more in the very confusing street, that makes 8 second-hand book stores I visited daily. Book variety – from ancient classics that crumble in your fingers, the unwanted stuff everyone has and no one wants, and the new stuff everyone wants but misses the opportunity. Plus, on last sunday I was there, I went to Car Boot market in Swanley. With result of bringing back home 125 books in a luggage that would’ve fit a body. Among the greatest treasures are Martin’s “Game of Thrones“, perfect condition, spine isn’t even broken, was 1.20 in pounds, and J.K. Rowling’s “Casual Vacancy“, free of charge. Book prices varied from zero to 5 pounds (10 dollars, I guess), and that was only one book I paid so much for. The best surprise were books on which Bones series were based, found them by pure accident.
Let’s go on with what I saw and ate and did. Every morning I’d get up around 8-ish naturally, mostly because it’s 10am at home and I don’t sleep-in out of a damn principle. I’d turn on my laptop, fire up the internet, of speed as great as I have at home, luckily, watch a youtube series serie and the stuff I subscribed at, dress up and go out, mostly because MOST of the stores open up at 10AM their time. They close up early too. At first it was quite a feat to walk as far as I did on daily basis, but since I had a choice to go or not to go, to go or to take a bus – I went on foot. When it’s my own choice – I can do miracles, I tell you. After a while it turned into a simple routine, so I started jogging, which resulted in me buying shoes, for I screwed up mine. I don’t like shoe shopping. A-ny-ways…. A week in I understood that I’m not looking, I’m just walking and getting books like crazy, so I forced myself to slow down and sort of smell the roses. Btw, kudos to Gravesend people, never saw so many little tiny gardens with such lush flowers in them everywhere. You’ve got a lot of trash everywhere, mostly because you’ve no other way to take out your garbage but to take it outside and leave it for garbage-men to collect, but you do also compensate for the unpleasant view with your peony bushes and other flowers I don’t even know titles of. So, as I said, I slowed down and started looking around. That lead to finding a lot of interesting things, like potion-bottles, little jewelry sales for the girl friends who waited back home and in their own countries. Then the supernatural-seeming people, one man in long leather coat who didn’t seem hot in it at all, with a huge red scar on his neck where a vampire bite would be, and the genderless-looking person who vanished into thin air as I turned to look at him or her again. Believe it or not, but Gravesend has quite a few books on paranormal activity, so while doubting my eyes – it was fun. And of course, me now has Sherlock in a box. Love every bit of it, the commentaries, the whatever else there is. Smart is the new sexy, knowledge is power, ignorance makes slave of a man, there, now you know I like smart people. Best part of getting it was my inability to remember what channel my shows are on. On the internet you just click a button and you’re in, in the outernet it’s a lot more difficult. The lad asked me which Sherlock I want, the BBC one? I said – the one with the Cumberbatch. Would be quite alright if not the little pout he made that kept amusing me for the rest of the day: Yeah, everyone likes him now.
Other great findings would be tropical guava (with black carrot) RockStar, which is not something I remember tasting. I might have, but I’ve no memory of it. It’s great. Just as great as the new RockStar with green apple, so very sour and refreshing. Fits with Wonka bars. Oh yes. Wonka chocolate. Oh and as for the Tropical Guava – don’t trust the reviews that say it’s sickly-sweet and syrupy. It really, really depends. For me it tasted like wild strawberry drink with sub-flavor (not a post-flavor).

What else, hm? Apparently that is all. The most important thing – I’m back and I’ve a luggage worth of books – is said. Soon I shall review Anne Rice’s fourth book of Vampire Chronicles “Body Thief” and it’s when I’ll speak to you next.

Things to remember, Things to forget

Let me start with pretty little pictures for my mother, for she won’t read this in English anyways. I’ll remind you that I will be back on April 1st, but probably will write a blog only on around the 2nd, mostly because we usually return home very late in the night. Hope for good weather for us, okay?



The Car Boot Sale in Swanley gave me plenty of great book-y treasures. Like the one above. These are first ten Charlaine Harris books on Sookie Stackhouse, I paid 5 pounds for all pack of brand new, unopened pack. And some part of me still whispers I should’ve tried cutting the price. But the lad looked so very cold… It was windy, drizzly and I really wanted these.

Earlier in the week got these for a friend. He made a great logo for my sister’s project, and since he’s a fan, this is my thanks. Not just this, but other Doctor-Who item I can’t show, mostly because I don’t want to tease other Whovians in my friend list.

Now, the stuff here. First days were the most adventurous for me, I guess. I heard a granny claim she liked Retro before it was fashionable. Then I saw a girl fall backwards on an up-going escalator and black out (she received all the help possible and I didn’t stand gawking there either). I drank a ton of Energy Drinks but didn’t find my Relentless Passion. Found the Immortal one thou, which is just as good. Plus, RockStar made some new ones, like sour green apple, which is pure marvel. Then I ate Wonka bar, yes, Wonka chocolate bar. Then another one. And another one. And then I figured I’m fat and ¬†shouldn’t have, but… Who am I kidding, I don’t regret a bit! Eitherway I’m walking a lot, I get plenty of exercise! And the weather is warm and nice.


Second-hand stores are the greatest. I got a luggage worth of books, neither more expensive than 5 pounds (10 dollars or so), which I paid for my own stupidity of not taking the change, out of excitement, I guess. Even today I came back home with 13 books in hands and I am getting worried of how will they all be packed and sent back home. Or where I’ll put them when I’m back. Many are meant for friends thought, so it’s not that bad. Like half the Sookie’s lot will go to friends, Hannibal, Vampire Rites and so on. Then again, best of the best are for me. Like Dracula! The book so far is not too great, Humphrey made a better job, but I won’t look the gifted horse in the teeth – I found it, I bought it, I will love it and cherish it.

What else, what else? Well, today as I went back home, I decided I’ll pick out the change out of my broken-apart wallet and go around the second-hand stores nearby, and maybe get myself another energy drink (don’t get me wrong, I care non for the energy or¬†caffeine. It’s the taste that I love!), so I fish out 1.30, and since 10 cents are in fives and I’m afraid to lose them, I take 1.20 and go out. First goal – the second-hand store, the only one I didn’t go into today (actually, it’s all “yesterday” now), because I will always, always rather buy books than unnecessary treats for myself. Book is a greater treat. But there I am, looking and looking and nothing good catches my eyes. Hard-cover are 0.30 and the paperbacks are 0.20 and THERE! Fourth book of Anne Rice‘s Vampire Chronicles The Body Thief. I’m trying to collect all ten books (and the plus ones if I can find those, like Vampire Vittorio and Pandora) for TWO of my friends, so since I found only the first one (Interview with the Vampire), it’s an obvious choice that the fourth one will go to the girl who already has three of her own. The cover is all battered and book seems… Believe it or not – sandy (and sand doesn’t look like anything from Gobi…), but 0.20 is not a price you seek high quality of material in. It’s the inside that matters for any price. I went to cash-register and the lady there was putting hangers on this metal rod, trying to slide a ton of them at once. As I came closer she probably assumed she needs to move faster to get to me and accidentally dropped most of them. She turns to me, with a smile and says: You’ve been waiting for me to do that, weren’t you? We laughed and I went off with my book! And thus, since I only found one book, I did indeed get a RockStar and finished it with a cup of sour watermelon gummies, while watching Sherlock (BBC) with commentaries. “THE WOMAN WOMAN!”.

Seven days?!

Yesterday we received our new work schedules. Well screw me. Seven days in a row, plus our (me and a friend) day’s off don’t match. I’ll get lost in town if I’ll go alone. I can better navigate in a freaking forest than towns! NOOOO! Like all the shit wasn’t enough! I’m sick as hell, never was as cold, as cold I am, throat pain is mind blowing, speaking lightly, bank problems, joint problems, stupid people problems. And now this. I’ll start spitting fire, people, and you will not like it.

Anyways, I’ll just drop every single picture I took so far unsorted here, too pissed to do shit about them. Bah. Bah. BAH.
