August Favourites 2015

Film: The Breakfast Club (1985)

I think it’s a rite of passage for every teen/young adult that they must have seen The Breakfast Club at least once before they go off into the world of university and job hunting. I’ve never know a song to fit so well to a film but Simple Minds really nailed it with ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’, especially the line “As you walk on by, will you call my name?” (cue flashback to scene discussing whether they’d talk to each other in front of their friends in the hallway).

TV: The Great British Bake Off – BBC1, Wednesdays, 8pm GMT

The Bake Off is back! We’ve seen soufflé cheesecakes, a three-time Star Baker champion and enough bread by one man to open up his own branch of Greggs, but we all know the true reason why we can’t stop watching it – the Mel/Sue one liners. We’re still waiting on Paul’s “soggy bottom” jibe to complete the line-up, though…

Tech: Windows 10

Tablet mode enabled instead of the start menu for desktop view. Cortana pops up by clicking the icon third from the left on the toolbar across the bottom of the screen.

I reserved my free upgrade to Windows 10 last month, and made the switch 2 weeks ago. It’s good, I haven’t really noticed any major differences between this and Windows 10 except for Cortana hiding among the toolbar icons and the removed ‘Charms’ menu that used to appear when swiping in from the right. I haven’t used my laptop that often since upgrading so this is more of a first impressions glimpse, but so far, I’m impressed!

What’s been some of your favourite things this month?
