Day 33: Ba, Ba, Ba, But No Sheep, Even Black

No, no. I was wrong. It is possible to be more tired than the tiredest I thought I was yesterday. [Whiner] You mums know what I am talking about. Being the mother of a blog, I can almost understand the slightly lesser commitment that is Motherhood. [Kidding! Cor Blimey, that is a sure fire way to get myself a fatwa or a mum-wa.] And, just coz it doesn't really require sleep as such, we climbed forty-five flights of stairs and then went out for food and beer. Chubbyness = the philosophy that rewards excercise with food and alcoholic beverages. But it was educational as well. We learned that the Vietnamese word for three is 'ba'. They has a beer called 333. That is, ba, ba, ba. We had ba ba, ba, bas. Not each. That would be 'comatose' rather than 'exhaustion-like-none-ever-experienced-before-but-not-as-bad-as-I-will-surely-feel-sometime-in-the-future.

Is everybody excited about Elementary tomorrow night? I am unhappy that I am super excited. It has an awful lot to live up to after Cumberbatch, and it is all wrong, but I am going to see what it has to offer anyway. The issue I have, beside it being transposed to only the arguably second best city in the world, is that Sherlock Holmes is NOT sexual. He is a-sexual. Having a female Watson cannot help but create a tension that should not be there. Even though there is exactly the same tension in the English version. Just not hetero-. I can't explain this feeling I have, but you know what I mean don't you? Sherlock's mind cannot be complicated, influenced, affected, by something so trivial as sex. I don't know how they will pull it off. I will watch to find out. And I will, most likely, feel very dirty to find I love it!

The Outfit
Top: Target
Skirt: Op-shopped
Cardigan: Lacoste, Op-shopped ( I didn't realise that one of the things that I would be glad came back from the eighties would be the jumpers)
Tights: Retail
Shoes: Dr Martens

Who wore it better?


  1. I am amazed at your indefatigable commitment to your great Blog. Less than 5 Hours sleep in 48 hours is Stamina 101. Have another Ba Ba Ba on me soon.

  2. I think it is what everyone at work does on day shift isn't it? Including you my sweet. It is a little scary to think about the ramifications. Everyone needs a ba, ba, ba!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love your feedback and comments. I read them all lovingly and try to respond to as many as I can. At the very least I go over and see where you have come from. Love it!

Day 279: Entertainment and Wishes

I have brain-freeze from a three hours/three hours/ten hours-during-the-day sleeping pattern over the last three days twenty-four hour periods (that ole chestnut, again) and so even though it is not Sunday, I am getting in early and loosening the clenched up brain cells by cheating on topic ideas with Sunday Social. Their link actually goes up tommorrow so be sure to check back and see what everyone else had to say when Sunday eventually does roll around.

Q: What is currently on your wish list?

A: I need nothing. Nothing. So let's talk about want. I want to be able to find some amazing thrifted pieces on my upcoming (eight sleeps) trip to the States. Luck and fate will have a lot to do with it, but I would be very happy to find some, or all, of the following as well: a chambray shirt, a real bomber jacket (just got one that I had different ideas about when I bought it from SheInside—it's really just a fleece jacket), belts, a vintage leather jacket, more tutus, sumptuous f…

Wear 1: Dropped My Shopping.

Day One of three hundred and sixty-five pictures of Irene (left) and I (right) on the internet. We're using it as a way to develop or realise a fashion style, and as a friendly competition as to who wore it better? Like every journey or quest, this year's project will teach me a little, make me think a bit and lend me some laughs and enjoyment. I hope also to slowly make sure everything in my clothes closet and my shoe closet is utilised: even perhaps the bags and boxes of outrageous, or not, op-shopped (thrifted) items secreted in cupboards and under beds. Other hopes: fewer words (believe it or not), more pictures and time to catch up on unfinished blogs from the last three years!

I had my outfit planned, but as I dressed this morning for work, I, well, chickened out. I lost the cape and replaced it with a black cardigan. I thought my work colleagues would think I looked strange and slightly overdressed. Lesson One: I am not brave in person (posting a silly picture on the in…

Day 348: My Favourite Colour

Who: Melanie at Bag and Beret

What: The Travelling Yellow Skirt Freak Show

When: A while ago (have I told you trying to buy a house keeps getting in my way!)

Where: At, around and in the vicinity of ACCA

Why: Do you even have to ask?

Who Else: B—— for the photos, Melbourne Bike Share for the props (although I did pay for that, and we spent so long riding around getting moving pictures that they charged me again so I am not really sure why I am telling you about them: this isn't a plug, except that they are quite cool!)

What the ?: Sunshine incarnate in the form of a yellow skirt travels the world searching for women, bold and beautiful, who make it their own for a day, or a week and share their own take on its joyous light with everyone out there who thinks that being an exceptional individual with the daring and bravado to walk your own way, strut your own stuff and be your own you is a good thing! That's my take on it, but you can read the full story on the link to the skir…
