Day 64: Dot Points, and Sh1t

With twelve working hours to go until my holidays commence, and with weather-induced madness affecting the emergency services, and with the sleep pattern from hell, and contrary to the evidence in this sentence, I cannot make a sentence to save myself. Maybe not contrary if you are a sentence purist. Best I can do is dot points. Here are some dot points for you:

Things Lolli Doesn't Enjoy:

* Obviously photo shoots if the yawn is anything to go by,
* Noises,
* The griller,
* A disruption in the timing of things,
* Excessive kissing (only kidding, she loves it),
* Peanut Butter and Eggplant; she can also seperate lettuce out of anything in her mouth, eat the good bits, and deposit the lettuce in your lap (it is a skill, whatever you feel about it).

The Books I am Taking to Vietnam on my Kindle:

* The Quiet American by Graham Green (set in Vietnam),
* Midwinter Sacrifice by Mons Kallentoft (love a snowbound thriller),
* Up Country by Nelson De Ville (set, in part, in Vietnam),
* Bones are Forever by Kathy Reichs (trying to get through the series but she keeps writing more of the damn things. It is like a greyhound and a bunny),
* The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli (set in Vietnam),
* 1Q84: Books 1 and 2 by Haruki Murakami (the endless dilemma of reading amazing writers, you don't want to read because once you have you can't unread and do it again for the first time. Do yourself a favour. All his works, slowly, slowly.),

That should hopefully get me through at least the first week.

Political Parties I am not Interested in Hearing About From Now Until September:

* Liberals,
* Labour,
* Nationals,
* Greens,
* Democrats,
* Family First,
* One Nation,
* or. any of the Independants.

(I am willing to give a sceptical ear to the Pirate Party and the Shooters and Fishers of NSW, and an analytical ear to the Communist Party.)

Favourite ridiculous comedy quotes I have pinned over the last month—the ones with the colourful backgrounds and the classic black and white sketches that accompany them:

* Saying 'and shit' after anything can make it sound gangster. For example: 'I like to crochet, and shit'.
* According to this BMI chart ... I'm too short.
* Alarm Clock: Because every morning should start with a heart attack.
* I call 911 because the dispatcher has a sexy voice.

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…
