Why I Hate My Job

I don’t hate my job. Ah, start again. I don’t belong in Corporateland. It’s not somewhere I’ve ever felt myself and I only found my way into it by sheer exhaustion of other unskilled opportunities. I was desperate for cash and got involved. Now, three years later, I’m tired of selling out. I do not … Continue reading

Packing Sweats

At the end of this week The Designer and I will be heading off on an amazing Singapore and Thailand vay-cay. I can hardly wait! I have not been overseas for years and neither has The Designer so every part of this has been a little thrill. I mean every part, as in the travel … Continue reading

There’s Culture in a Cult Party

Over the weekend The Designer and I went to a bon voyage/housewarming party (a unique combination, sure) which ended up becoming a themed party. The theme was Cult Classics. There were many weird and wonderful costumes. Old Greg from The Mighty Boosh, Princess Leia, Charles Manson, The Dude from The Big Lebowski (of course) and … Continue reading

On Saturday the three of us drove to Moore … Continue reading

Well, the eating of the cookies is probably my favourite. The weather is so shit today that I want to go home and bake cookies … Continue reading

2011 in review

Okay. Sometimes I am guilty of being a little negligent laid back with my email account. Okay, not sometimes. Whatever. So I missed this when WordPress sent it to me on 1 January, but check out how cool it is. The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for my blog. Here’s an … Continue reading

Love That Lasts

The first time I saw The Beautiful Girls in concert it was Saturday 17 July 2010 at The Enmore. I have loved their music for a long time and was thrilled to be going to that concert. Spooks, their fourth album, had my heart from it’s very first beat. We had tickets months in advance and … Continue reading
