Day 125: Four Things

Thanks to Sunday Social for topic ideas again!

Four favourite things to do on a weekend:
What's a weekend? Oh, yeah. I remember. It's that thing where Saturday and Sunday are different to the rest of the week because you don't work on them. I'll base it on a 'rotation-end'. Get a big pile of books and work through them with snacks, a rug and lots of coffee. Go op-shopping. Sleep and sleep and sleep until my pillows are flat. Have 'eat-whatever-you-want-day'.

Four favourite things about your best friend:
She's funny. She thinks I am funny. We have an amazing and rich history. We 'get' each other, and what we don't get, we don't critisise (much). Lots more stuff too.

Four things you would do with a hundred grand:
Upgrade my upcoming flights to business class. Give five grand each to my parents, siblings and besties. Get super sensible and put some aside for a deposit on a house with a walk-in wardrobe. Maybe, maybe, but not by any means definitely, get a car. Would I? Do I really need one? Maybe I'll just get the boy his Rolex instead.

Four favourite books you've ever read:
The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
Four Letters of Love by Niall Williams
Anything by Haruki Murakumi (as in anything he writes, not an obscure unknown novel of his by the name of Anything)
The Shipping News by E Annie Proulx
(I feel dirty for all the amazing texts I have left off this too restrictive list, but I will stick to the brief and try not to cry about it!)

Four favourite snack foods:
Nachos. Chocolate teddy bear biscuits. Cake—any of the species, I am not fussed. Condensed milk out of the fridge with a teaspoon.

Four things that I must do daily:
Check my stats on Blogger. Fluff all the feathers in my pillows. Drink coffee. Kiss Lolli four thousand times on her head.

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…
