Indoor Recess with Lana: April 6, 2020

Lana is offering some ways to reduce stress in these trying times

Hey, how was your weekend? I, as per usual, had a great conversation with my coffee pot and watched a few movies (Wet Hot American Summer, and Clueless) and am starting to wonder if by the end of this I’ll find out that my true life’s passion is… nail art?

Let’s start off the new week with another list of things to check out to keep you entertained indoors. Thanks for staying home!
 

Listen

Another week, another daily show on Indie88 1-5pm! Tune in, I’ll try my best to keep you informed and entertained. Please say hello and don’t forget you can always text or call 416-588-0881 to tell me how you’re doing.
 

Make a Dalgona coffee

Ah, instagram has returned to the good ol’ days of food pics. Have you noticed a lot of folks are trying out Dalgona coffee? It seems pretty simple, a 1:1:1 ratio of instant coffee, boiling water, and sugar and a hefty amount of mixing – but hey – who doesn’t have the time now?

The simplest how to video I’ve found is here and it comes from YouTuber DDlugi, but if you want to deep dive into the history of your new foamy friend, James Hoffman has the scoop here.
 

Change your passwords


Apparently you should be changing your passwords every 30 days (hahahaha) I guess now’s the time to have that fresh start across the board and actually figure out a way to remember them all!

Also, you should change your password ASAP if it’s “Blink182,” according to the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre it’s one of the top passwords commonly found in data breaches.
 

Watch a classic

Having almost endless amounts of movies at your fingertips can bring up the ol’ paradox of choice, which might explain why we often go back to old favourites. If you want to mix it up and need a list to peruse, here’s IMDB’s Top 100 movies of all time list.
 

Have a laugh

Baroness von Sketch was created by four of the greatest sketch comedians in this country. If you’ve somehow missed an episode, might I suggest starting at season 1 today. If you watch an episode a day, you’ll have a guaranteed daily laugh until mid May!
 

Make ancient bread

I know baking bread is all the isolated rage these days and folks are on the hunt for yeast packets for the first time since the 1940s. Here’s an ancient (yeast free!) bread recipe that is part of history. For real. It’s very interesting edible archaeology.

Herculaneam Bath Bread is “the only one of its kind found in the Pompeian region that was preserved following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD” and all you need to make it is four, water and salt.
