Day 136: Drink Me; Eat Me

Nordic myths rock! Now I understand why the Scandanavians are so whacky. They really believe in elves and giants and trolls and other inhabitants of Tolkienesque tales. Don't get me wrong. I haven't actually read any, but I was reading about them today and now I want to. They are obviously the source of so much good literature and culture, from The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings to Harry Potter and everything other-worldly in between; from Wagner to Neil Gaiman and Douglas Adams; from Supernatural to Doctor Who to, most likely, The Simpsons (everything else is an influence on the The Simpsons!). There is so much on my list of things to read, but I think the list just got one chunky book longer.

I don't know if this is a good thing, but I think my capacity for food may have greatly decreased. That, or the alien actually is physically in my tummy taking up space. I think it is a good thing and for the most part I can get my mind to stop when my tummy does. Not tonight though. First real meal in about three days and I think I am going to explode. Luckily Lollii was there to take the fall for both of us in the end, but I think it was too late. I don't think I could even get a tea-soaked chocolate teddy bear biscuit in there if I tried. I'll try and let you know how it goes. If you don't hear from me again, I literally did explode.

The Outfit

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…
