Achieved quite a lot this morning, but lost all motivation by about 2pm.  Now I need to finish what I should've finished yesterday.  Come back motivation; I neeeeeeed yoooooouuuu!

In June last year, we stayed in this apartment on 8th Avenue (between 14th & 15th) for my 40th birthday trip to NYC.  I slept in the bed in the top right-hand corner (with the red picture above it).  Today, Hurricane Sandy caused the facade to collapse and the building has been featured on news reports the world over.  What are the chances?!?!

Wise words from one of my favourite women...

Three shows in three days... now I need to actually do the work I have been putting off all weekend...

Saturday, 27 October 2012

Opening night of 'A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to the Forum' with Geoffrey Rush.  Through the awesomeness of my GBF, we scored front row seats, which provided for some one-of-a-kind moments, including being clocked in the back of the head with a badly-aimed, curtain-call streamer courtesy of Kath Day-Knight herself.  Totes hilaire.

A trip to Ballarat to see my beautiful 98 year old great aunt and a night at Chapel Off Chapel, bawling my eyes out at a beautiful production of The Laramie Project.  I. Am. Exhausted.

Thursday, 25 October 2012

Beyond tired, behind in chores, behind in work... slightly overwhelmed.  An early night?  I think so.

Wednesday, 24 October 2012

Took a little trip to the Wheeler Centre tonight to hear this delightful man deliver the annual Screenwriter's Address.  Engaging, funny, insightful, touching and honest. What a privilege.

Murphy's Law:  as soon as I accept some extra work to bump up the cash flow; my regular job suddenly gets busy and I have to work extra days there.

Didn't realise quite how anxious I'd been about my test results until I got the all clear from the oncologist this afternoon.  Phew!

Sunday Skype with the Belgian Bestie is always a nice way to end the week!

Saturday, 20 October 2012

So many books stacked up on the table, so little time to read them...

Friday, 19 October 2012

An unexpectedly long day and my planned weekend off in tatters... but the extra $$ on payday will be most welcome!

Thursday, 18 October 2012

A late start, but a productive day.  Now awaiting the arrival of a mate who's on a stopover from Indonesia to Sydney... the kettle is on!

So much laughter tonight, courtesy of Jon Stewart. The man is hilarious.

Wobbly (post-yoga) legs and a core that just knows it's been engaged to the absolute limit... feels goooooood.

Who would've thought that wandering around the Melbourne Zoo at twilight, following instructions coming from an iPod Touch, would lead to such an amazing, emotional, magical experience? Thank you, 'I, Animal' team. That was beautiful.

A couple of days at the beach is always good for the soul...

Saturday, 13 October 2012

Peter Pan, Noddy, Marty Maraschino, a cockroach, an Avatar and Sophia Grace & Rosie. Fancy dress fun in Ocean Grove.

Friday, 12 October 2012

Out the door of work at 5pm, mad dash via tram to Southern Cross, ticket purchased and seated on train to Geelong by 5:19pm. A raucous weekend in Ocean Grove awaits!

Thursday, 11 October 2012

So tired I can barely stand. Hurry up train - my bed is calling!

Wednesday, 10 October 2012

A beautiful start to the day, courtesy of a very talented friend.  Everyone needs to take aMoment now and again.

Tuesday, 9 October 2012

A very full-on yoga class left me feeling good, but exhausted and slightly vulnerable.  Watching the finale of Doctor Who followed by the season opener of Grey's Anatomy was probably not the wisest of ideas... sobbed like a child.

Monday, 8 October 2012

Attending the launch of a new musical is always intriguing, but when that musical involves a six metre high animatronic gorilla, over 40 performers and musical contributions from Marius De Vries, Sarah McLachlan, Guy Garvey (Elbow) and Massive Attack, you know it's going to be... epic. King Kong epic.

Sunday, 7 October 2012

Stupidly tired after a late night, very early start and long day.  Still slightly confused as to the exact time, but heading to bed...

Saturday, 6 October 2012

As I finish work at 10:30pm and head over to a friend's birthday drink, I am trying really hard not to think about the fact daylight savings pushes the clocks forward an hour at 2am, making my 8am work start time tomorrow effectively a 7am start time. Ugh.

Friday, 5 October 2012

An unexpected early mark (6.30pm is an early mark this week)... and the prospect of a sleep in tomorrow.  HURRAH!

Thursday, 4 October 2012

Working a Fringe shift with co-workers who like to randomly dance behind the bar, are awesome fun.  Thirsty Thursdays after work, catching up with old friends and making new ones, are also awesome fun.

"Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can.  You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something!"

My 98-year-old great-aunt has been diagnosed with acute leukaemia. Seriously. She's been perfectly healthy her entire life and at now, at 98, the universe decides that this is how she will exit the world. That's just outright, batshit bonkers.

  • Coffee and catch up with a lovely friend - tick
  • Colouring in princess pictures with lovely friend's four-year-old daughter (very important!) - tick

A day of small, but important ticks.
