Working at the meet & greet for The Beach Boys concert.  Brian Wilson arrives in the room bang on time.  Mike Love is running late, as is the rest of the band. Brian starts chatting to me.  Asks me if I can sing.  "Sure" is my reply.  "Might be just you and me up on stage tonight then", he says.  "Know any Three Dog Night?".  "Absolutely!" is my reply... and thus goes the conversation for the next twenty minutes.

Mike Love, I was warned you were a tool, but your tardiness enabled me to have twenty minutes one-on-one with my birthday twin; and for that I will forever love you.

Brian Wilson... you are awesome.  Jeremiah WAS a bullfrog.

"Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year."

(thanks Gretchen for the advice!)

Made it to the gym for the first time in weeks.  The jasmine on the balcony is blooming. Two sure signs that Spring is around the corner!

Why am I sitting here watching Melrose Place? Go. To. Bed.

Monday, 27 August 2012

Starting the day with a Skype date with a lovely friend in NYC and ending the day with watching the season finale of The Newsroom makes for a very good Monday.

A last minute invitation to the premiere of the new Kath & Kim movie?  Noice. Diffrent.  Unewsewal. (Sadly, it wasn't any of those, but it was a bit of a giggle nonetheless)

From only scoring one point in the first quarter, to winning by seven points... what a game Hawks!  Always happy to score a win over the Swans.

The Prosperity Project begins with being gifted the book by a wonderful friend. Thank you Debs - can't wait to start!

Day one of three months of antibiotics... rosacea be gone (soon) (please).

Wednesday, 22 August 2012

An early mark from work meant I could stop by the hairdresser on my way to the station and get four inches of hair chopped off!  Feels (and looks) so much better!

Tuesday, 21 August 2012

Spent an hour or two today researching an idea... which may well lead to a path I've long wanted to take. Hmmmmm. Also, was sent this awesome book cover. Love it!

Monday, 20 August 2012

Just finished reading Diane Keaton's memoir, Then Again. So much of the book resonated with me, but none so more than this paragraph...

Sunday, 19 August 2012

Feeling very relaxed after a lovely long weekend on the Peninsula.  Getting out of your surroundings, even for a couple of days, does wonders for the soul!

Saturday, 18 August 2012

All Saturday nights should start like this...

Friday, 17 August 2012

Escaping the city for a weekend in Sorrento... good friends, good food, good wine... exactly what the doctor ordered!

If I have two library books which are due back in five days time and two which are due back in twelve days time, which should I be reading first?  Common sense would dictate the former and yet despite several attempts, I just can't be arsed.  Think I'll skip straight to the latter.

Tuesday, 14 August 2012

I have amazing friends. Can't wait to start my next creative project with Debs and Kris!

Monday, 13 August 2012

Getting a text from a good friend (who's also the sister of an old flatmate), to say that their younger sister (who was only 4 days younger than me) has just died, is not the best start to the week.

RIP Martina. May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest. xox

I'm not very good at being sick.  After a day spent mostly sleeping and watching season two of The West Wing, I'm having another big slug of NyQuil and an early night... let's hope that fixes this cold once and for all!

Saturday, 11 August 2012

Third head cold this winter... for someone who so rarely gets sick, this is annoying, to put it mildly.  NyQuil, work your magic overnight please!

Friday, 10 August 2012

Desperately need an early night, especially as I've agreed to cover a shift tomorrow morning, but I'm struggling to move from the sofa!

Thursday, 9 August 2012

Why is it that even though I make a list for my (very rare) trip to the doctor, I end up not telling her half of what's on it for fear of sounding like a hypochondriac?

Wednesday, 8 August 2012

Only 8:30pm and I'm already tucked up in bed with my book (Bill Oddie's autobiography)... I must be tired!

Tuesday, 7 August 2012

So Olivia Munn has trichotillomania too... there's something oddly comforting in knowing that someone as attractive as her also has this totally weird, little-known disorder that has had me in its grip for most of my life.

Monday, 6 August 2012

The girls have gone home and it's back to work tomorrow.  What a fun 4 1/2 days it has been.  Love my friends.

Sunday, 5 August 2012

Magic Mike is possibly one of the worst films I have ever seen. I wasn't expecting Citizen Kane, but still, I expected more from Steven Soderbergh.

Saturday, 4 August 2012

Another massive day with the Sydney ladies... breakfast, shopping, wine, blow dry, wine, dinner and cocktails.  Knackered!

Friday, 3 August 2012

Margaritas, mexican food and good conversation with the girls.  Fun Friday.

Thursday, 2 August 2012

Library books returned, grocery shopping done, house cleaned... now eagerly awaiting the arrival of my weekend house guests!

Wednesday, 1 August 2012

Love of theatre restored seeing MKA's 'Triangle' at a former office block in North Melbourne.  Who would've thought a fifty minute play about lesbian vampires in Fitzroy would have been so well written, engaging, funny, simply directed and brilliantly and truthfully performed?  Best thing I've seen all year - worth every cent of the (bargain) $25 I paid for my ticket.
