Day 139: Nothing More To Learn: Eurovision Grand Final

Well done Denmark. And without shoes. No shoes! I have nothing to learn there.

It is Social Sunday again, so here goes with a little Q an A:

Q: What is your favourite kind of surprise?
A: The little things. Like today, when I was running around like a goose getting ready for work and dressing up like the biggest drag queen of the last three days and my boy called on the phone. I made him pretend he was talking to Lollii as the phone sat on the bathroom cabinet and I tried to put an eyelash on. When he was finally allowed to talk to a person he asked me if I wanted a lift to work. I was all 'no, it's okay' (while thinking, 'eek, I have to ride a bike to work with a wig, false eyelashes and a tutu'). Then, 'Who's at the door?'. Confused. Oh, it's the boy come to give me a lift. Little trickster. But so sweet. And it happens a million times with lovely thoughts. A surprise doesn't have to be big.

Q: Flowers or Chocolate?
A: Well, the flowers, at least wouldn't have calories—even if they're nasturtiums. But I don't need either. I usually get shelves full of milk and a steak instead.

Q: What is your favourite summertime activity?
A: Wishing for winter. Only kidding. I only do that if it is over twenty-five degrees. Otherwise I do love to sit with a cider on the front porch and watch the drivers near-miss each other and play Scrabble until the mossies come out.

Q: Do you have any vacations planned this summer?
A: It's our winter, but I do have two planned for this year. It is better for your mental health to have more than one. We leave very soon for a week of cocktails, swimming, foot massages and reading in Phuket, Thailand. And later in the year we are going road-tripping through the States. Technically that may be more northern hemisphere autumn, but close enough. Thinking Nevada, New Mexico, Texas sort of a trip. Lots of me thrift shopping and the boy looking at fireworks shops, wide open spaces and mad Americans (the only kind I like!)

Q: Favourite Summer holiday?
A: We are all back to front, so our Summer holidays are Christmas and New Years. We have Australia Day in January. But I think a day where a whole State doesn't go to work (except for people like us, but irrelevant) because of a horse race is as good an excuse for a holiday as it gets, so Cup Day, first tuesday in November, is my favourite Summer holiday. Not that I am overly fussed about the actual race.

Q: Dream Vacation?
A: One that has no limit. Something like being able to do a long distance walk all the way through, ride Cadel Evans' Tour de France all the way through. No time limits, and no worries. That would be the best.

The Outfit
Shirt: Target
Jacket: Target
Tutu: an online sock shop
Leggings: Black Milk
Wig: a wig shop in Mexico City—known as 'British Candy', or Candy for short. Remind me to tell you about how it landed on a stuffed lion at the museum one time.
Shoes: Sachi (just for the shoot, I realised I had sold them on ebay and figured if I wore them to work, it would be inevitable that something would happen and I would have to explain to that unsuspecting buyer)

Photographer de Jour: V——

Who wore it better?

Linky today with:

  1. You deserve lots & lots of special surprises.
    ( Irene said so )

  2. Love a tutu. You look great as a blonde.

  3. My goodness, you look awesome! I love the tutu, always a soft spot for tulle. What a Boy! Nothing like a good holiday or two on the horizon to make it through each day.
