Day 181: Fiadone Corse (Corsican Cheese Cake)

Riding along in the Sunday Social pelaton today:

Q: What is your favorite movie of all time?
A: Don't tell anyone, because I am slightly embarrassed. I love The American President. There is something so cheesy about it. Half the dialogue is on automatic in my brain. I say the final speech on long walks sometimes. However, if I were to be more culturally responsible I would put down a few more significant options: The Shawshank Redemption, Strictly Ballroom, Harold and Maude, Fight Club, The Princess Bride, Kill Bill Vol I and II, Memento, Moonlighting, The Usual Suspects, Fargo and Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel.

Q: What is your favorite movie quote?
A: For pure pleasure of repeating it in a funny voice: 'I'll never tell' (said with vibrato).

Q: What is the best movie to watch for a girls night in?
A: For laughs and some very clever inside jokes, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. For eye-candy: Anything with [insert male or female actor who you think is a hottie here]. I'll go Daniel Craig or Kevin Bacon. For chick-flick fun: The Sweetest Thing.

Q: What is the best breakup movie?
A: Practical Magic. It is all about getting rid of the wrong guy and finding the right. That is what break-up should be about.

Q: Who would you want to play you in a movie about your life?
A: I wouldn't mind Sandra Bullock (funny, awkward, silly). I wasn't sure who else would be a good option—I haven't read trashy magazines for a while, I forget who there is—so I did an internet quiz and it suggested Johnny Depp. Mmm. I gender skewed it and got Renee Zellwigger and then Mila Kunis. This isn't working. I'll stay with Sandra.

Q: Which movie star’s closet would you want to raid?
A: It's slightly off the question, but I'd love to have the clothes from both the scenes of clothing montages in 21 Dresses and The Sweetest Thing. But in terms of having someone's closet, I would have to go with Carrie Bradshaw. Especially the movies and the last series. Oh, heaven.

Gabriel Gate cooks a local dish each day on the Tour de France (not mentioned but on in the background). My title is that dish.

Who wore it better?

  1. Honestly, is Irene EVER winning? Love the outfit, even though I'd probably choose a jacket with a little longer cut.. or not..

    Back to Irene.. She'll probably win in my wedding dress against me wearing it after eating my dinner and cake and dessert ;-)

    1. Irene has some great advantages: great figure, firm and upsetting breasts, porcelain like skin (really just almost exactly like porcelain without the thingy sound) and no sense of hot and cold. She is disadvantaged by having to wear my clothing. But, you know, she could get a job, or something.

  2. I have not seen any Practical Magic - the best underdog, i will now! :))

  3. At first I just noticed the jacket, which is great, and then I saw the lace dress. It looks fabulous over the blue skirt!

  4. That quiz picked Jennifer Lawrence to play me.

    You look great today.


    1. You would make a great Jennifer Lawrence. You can play her.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love your feedback and comments. I read them all lovingly and try to respond to as many as I can. At the very least I go over and see where you have come from. Love it!

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…
