Day 65: Gadgets, Aston Martins and Cyanide Pills

I would like to be a spy. Or a detective. But there are a couple of conditions. For the first, I can only be a spy if everyone (and that is no-one because no-one can know you are a spy) calls me by the preferred title 'Covert Operative'. That is what I would have on my card. Also, I am not comfortable to be an agent of my own government. That seems a little bit too much like dobbing. I would prefer to work for the KGB or the French Foreign Legion. (If you are, please stop taking me seriously about now. Now. Yep, now. Now. Okay? We good?) But seriously. If they could move Canberra up out of that crater and put it by the beach, I would be there. I can't tell you anything, and you have to be prepared for the fact that if I am captured, the Government does not negotiate, but if you see Canberra move, you know. You understand what I am saying. [Eye twitches, head jearks, nods, winks]. Don't make me spell it out. For the second, I would need to graduate from the Academy and start the following Monday on the Homocide Squad. I would not be able to do my time in the ranks without going stark-raving-mad due to the general stupidity of the criminal population. I would need to work with the top of the criminal chain. Like Clarice. Alternatively, I would be happy to be a shoe-maker or a writer of Country and Western lyrics.

This is what my poor colleagues heard from me today: twelve hours until my holiday; ten hours, forty-eight minutes to go; Everyone, nine hours exactly; oh my god, serious? four priority one accidents on the freeway at the same time?; Hey Bob, I have seven hours and four minutes to go until my holiday, how are you?; six hours to go, six hours to go, hi-ho the merrrrryyyy-o; What's this shit? (only kidding); four hours, twelve minutes, fifty-six, no fifty-five, no fifty four ... the seconds won't stop. Obnoxious. I am sorry. But aaaahhhhhhhhhhh, aaahhhahhahhhhh, oh my goodness, joy. I am on holidays. Sorry B——.

The Outfit
Shirt: Target
Top (Over Shirt): Vintage Southern Chinese Hill Tribe Bra (have no idea how it works but it is not designed with occidental boobies in mind I would say, beautiful fabrics and hand-dyed with locally made dye)
Skirt: Op-shopped

Photographer de Jour: B——

Who wore it better? Celebrating linking today with:

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…
