Day 159: I'mmm Ba-a-ack!

Woo-hoo and Boo-hoo. End of holidays, end of endless reading and sunshine and swimming and food yumminesses. Back to my puppy, my bed, and my shoes. Every silver lining has a cloud and visa versa.

I'm trying to catch up today so I am going to be short and not-so-sweet. I need to have a rant. About Malaysian Airlines and chicken pastries. Airfares are not cheap. But I am finding airlines are getting cheaper. We all know that they are able to come up with, as V—— put it, 'just the right amount of discomfort short of people refusing to put up with it'. But I would think long and hard about Malaysian again because of the final straw: the chicken pastry in a box. It's a shame because I actually really like being on the good side of their two-four-two configuration. But! They have stopped serving two meals on their long haul flights and have replaced one—call it 'continental breakfast', call it a 'snack', call it whatever fits into the time-slot they fit it into—with a chicken pastry in a box. The same pastry. In a box (I don't cope well with warm food in cardboard before anything else even starts to become an issue). I remember once reading about how American Airlines saved themselves about forty thousand dollars a year by taking away one olive from the salad in just the first class meals. I cannot concieve how much Malaysian is saving with their pastry in a box—especially seeing as people tend to start saying no after they get to their third long haul section and their third chicken pastry in a box! I don't think I am benefiting from any chicken in a box savings. Shame on you Malaysian Airlines. Rant over.

    Airlines are getting cheaper and cheaper and the food is worse all the time. On one short trip the flight attendants practically threw the packaged "snacks" to us.

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…
