Day 308: How Darby Thinks?

Don't you wonder how dogs think? When it comes to Mr Darby Pickles, I think it runs something like this:

Sneaker Thoughts:

Darby: Mmm. Why did V—— come to visit me and then lie down and nap with Charlie? Shouldn't he be playing with me, feeding me treats, taking me for a walk and then sitting on the couch so I can lick his face for a solid ten minutes every twenty minutes, or whenever he talks about Lollii? I will take his sneaker outside.

Negotiates a size eleven sneaker through a size seven dog-door.

Darby: This looks odd by itself. I'll get the other one.

Negotiates another size eleven sneaker through a size seven dog-door.

Darby: The humans are still sleeping. These sneakers smell good. I will eat them seeing as they are already here. Mmm. Tasty insteps. Just like a face, only feetier.

Compass Points:

Darby: There is no one here whose face I can lick for ten minutes every twenty minutes, or if they talk about Lollii. I'm going to look sideways out of the window from the bed for a little bit. Ahh, soft bed. Maybe a lie down. I need a shoe.

Finds a sandal and places it at a position roughly corresponding to North on the bed.

Darby: I need a shoe.

Finds a slipper and places it at a position roughly corresponding to East on the bed.

Darby: I need a shoe.

Finds a clog and places it at a position roughly corresponding to West on the bed.

Darby: I need a shoe.

Finds a sneaker and places it at a position roughly corresponding to South on the bed.

Darby: Mmm. Smells delightfully shoe-y no matter which way I turn! Who needs face licking anyway.

Channelling Casanova:

Darby: I've sat on people's heads when they're sleeping, been for a walk, eaten breakfast and napped, what should I do next? What's this?

Sniffs at a porcelain cup with a table bouquet in it.

Darby: Mmmm, garden-y. Might just have a chew on this. Oh? Water on that board with all the plugs coming out of it, that shouldn't matter. What's B—— doing?

Walks into the bedroom with a rose in his mouth, leaving behind a strange electrical smell.

  3. Darby is a dear little Man. He is actually innocent and constantly being "set up" by Lolli as the Patsy.

  4. Love the boots and socks! Good job Mr. Darby didn't get a hold of those shoes!


  5. What a fun outfit! I LOVE it when people are not afraid of being who they are through clothes. Thank you for the fun inspiration!

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…
