Day 263: Goddammit!!

Goddammit!! The best ever year of SYTYCD is over. There were tears. Like they said, there was no way to choose a winner badly (although I would have loved it if Jasmine had won). Tears fell out of my eyes, but I grinned and cheered for the whole show too. It was stupendous. Pure, amazing entertainment!

Goddammit!! There is a serious plot error in Dan Brown's Angels and Demons. I found it. I double and triple checked it and I thought I added it to this blog list of mine (lots of 'works in progress' on that blog). But I thought wrong. And it seems that no-one else has noticed it—there are lots and lots of blogs about all the other errors in that book, but not the one I found. All this means I have had to add another book to the pile, because now I have to work it out again!

Goddammit!! Okay, firstly, confession time. I have a device, meant for entertainment of a sort, on which there may, or may not be, a few items of said entertainment-type that have been donated to me in a not-altogether moral or honest fashion. You know what I am saying. I don't feel good about it. But this is probably karma. Turns out that recently I have purchased some of these entertainment bitties, only to find out that I already had them. Like I said, karma!

Goddammit!! It's daylight savings. I spent a night of confusion fluctuating between times because my phone and i-Pad changed automatically at two a.m., but my clock didn't. It was a night of 'ooh, it's only blah; no, it's blah; oh, maybe it's blah', and really, who knows? But ultimately it's a lost hour of sleep. And I made the mistake of checking my roster for the day it goes back—April 6th, 2014—and realised we are working overnight. (Yes, I can check my roster that far ahead; I could tell you what I am working the week containing 27 June, 2021 if needed. Very depressing!) That means we get to work a thirteen hour shift that day for the price of twelve. There will be a stronger word than 'Goddammit!!' used when the clock does this: 01:59:57, 01:59:58, 01:59:59, 01:00:00. There will be tears!

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…
