I always forget that rockers go by their own time, not everyone else's.  Makes scheduling a nightmare.  In other news, I am taller than Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.  Go figure.

Been working for 14 hours straight... and according to my body clock, it's 2am. Time for some zzzzzzzzzz's.

It all begins tomorrow... let's hope I can survive the misogynistic madness of The Monster Tour with my feminist head held high.

AA stands for Academy Awards. It also stands for Awkward (As All) Arse.

OK, so it wasn't as bad as the year James & Anne hosted, but the entire thing felt like a bad dress rehearsal. Timings were off, the sound mixing was shonky as all get up and the whole "oh look, we're going to put a whole bunch of Chicago in there" segments had me baffled.  Not one of the finer telecasts.

Best evening's entertainment I've had in a VERY long time. Megan Mullally is incredible!!

An amazing dinner with old and new friends and now it's off to White Night... what amazing surprises does my city have in store for me tonight?

Sometimes when fate steps in and takes a hand, it makes life a whole hell of a lot easier.

Working my ass off at Pilates so I can stuff my face with roast pork at the pub is not really the best idea I've ever had.

"Impervious" is my new mantra when dealing with annoying work colleagues.  Actually, it's my new mantra when dealing with pretty much everything that annoys me.  When accompanied by a wave of the hand, it's highly satisfying.

I would've thought it was a fairly simple fashion item: inexpensive (under $100), plain, black, knee-length, cotton work skirt.  Fifteen stores later and I'm clearly asking far too much of the fashion industry.  Sigh.

There are some days when I'm in such a funk that I should not even bother attempting to communicate with people.  Today was one of those days.

Saturday, 16 February 2013

Loose, cotton maxi-dresses are definitely my friend in this never-ending heatwave (at least until Thursday's trip to the beautician).  Too much information?  Don't care.

Friday, 15 February 2013

Today I decided that Sunday is going to be movie day. But which one?  Zero Dark Thirty or Lincoln?  I need to see both before Oscar day...

Today is Valentine's Day.

Personally, I prefer Galentine's Day.

This day:

Got absolute confirmation today, that in two weeks, I become a slave to the Crüe for their Australian tour.  Yes. The Mötley Crüe.  The "own-all-their-early-albums" and "had-posters-of-them-on-my-wall-as-a-teenager" parts of me are über excited; the "I've-seen-Tommy's-sex-tape-and-it's-not-flattering" and "I-read-Nikki's-autobiography-and-nearly-vomited-in-disgust" parts of me are seriously dreading it.

House of Cards with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. Totally hooked.

Edging inch-by-inch towards a new goal... must. have. patience.

Sunday, 10 February 2013

I've deleted Facebook from my iPhone, in an effort to cut down on all the hours I spend on it.  Couple this with the fact that work has blocked social media while they switch to a new server and I should be on track to making it happen!

Am in a food coma after a catch up brunch with a Sydney mate and a massive late lunch with the gang.  Cereal for dinner is perfectly acceptable, right?

Tom Haver"food" Rule #6:

I never eat anything with a sauce I have to dip myself. Drizzle it on for me... I'm not your maid!

*Yes, I've been catching up on Parks & Recreation.  God I love that show.  Literally.

Finally got around to watching Argo. Mob mentality violence (even fictionalised) terrifies me.

Wednesday, 6 February 2013

Sometimes I feel that I identify a little toooo much with Mindy Lahiri.

Tuesday, 5 February 2013

A fabulous evening catching up with my old roomie... I've missed her humour and wisdom!

Monday, 4 February 2013

First day back at work and it was a loooong one. Ugh. Totally unenthused.

Sunday, 3 February 2013

Finally finished reading a book I bought in NYC in 2011 - Talking To Girls About Duran Duran by Rob Sheffield.  A must-read for anyone who was a teenager in the the 80s.

Saturday, 2 February 2013

Truffle-infused Brie, home-made chutney, roast pork with crackling, potatoes cooked in duck fat and six different types of Koko Black chocolate. Oh and wine. Just another Saturday night dinner at the GBF's.

Watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and hearing Jemima and Jeremy sing "our hearts beat so unruly, because we love you Truly, honest, Truly... we do" reminded me of my time in the USA when my little munchkin cousins would sing that song to me as we were driving somewhere (usually to Borders on Leesburg Pike for Pink Lemonade Snapple and an afternoon in the kid's section reading stories together).  Awwwww.
