Ticked almost all the major things off my to-do list... time to watch this week's Scandal.

Thursday, 30 October 2014

Finally feel like things are beginning to fall into place... about time!!

How is it almost the end of October?


Tuesday, 28 October 2014

So much to do, so little time.  To do lists coming out of my ears.

Can we add an extra 8 hours to each day please? Just so I can, you know, sleep.

Always delightful when directors scream obscenities in your face because there are empty seats in their show...

Took a drive down the Peninsula today and on the way back went past my Great-Aunt Lil's old place... they've done gone and rendered the bejeezus out of it and painted it khaki green.

Normally I'm not a fan of a two-show day, but when you're a patron and not working, it's so much more enjoyable. Yay for Melbourne Festival freebies!

After a crazy shift at work, I just wanted to go home and crawl into bed. Thank god my house guests weren't up for a big night either.

I swear I am the youngest person* at the Stitches & Craft Fair by about 40 years.

Nanas on the hunt for a crafty bargain are terrifying.

* Youngest person without a child... there's a bunch of mummy blogger/crafter types here too, with their scary prams that could cause you to lose a limb if you get in the way.

So, my neighbours are noisier when they're fighting than they are when they're having sex.

And they're pretty damn loud when they're having sex.

Post-viewing of Les Mis in Melbourne, I feel another 'Ten Things I Loved/Ten Things I Hated' blog is in order... stay tuned.

So, apparently I'm in a minority... I really like Madam Secretary.

I mean, HELLO... Téa Leoni as strong, intelligent, resourceful woman in a position of power? Timothy Daly as the eye candy? What's not to like?

Is 11pm too late to finish re-upholstering a chair? It's only about 10 nails worth of hammering before it's done...

Saturday, 18 October 2014

Such a long to-do list, so little time.

Or maybe too much time, hence the procrastination. I do work more efficiently when there's a huge deadline looming.

So impressed by the work of our VCA third year theatre students at Performance Day today. They're such a talented bunch!

Having a Sydney mate staying over is always nice. The fact that she has to stay with me because she got kicked out of the hotel room she's been in all week due to the arrival of 80,000 Jehovah's Witnesses arriving in Melbs for a 3 day convention, is HILARIOUS. 

Wednesday, 15 October 2014

How is it 8.15pm already and I feel like I've only just started getting stuff done today?


Oh and I'm hungry.

Tuesday, 14 October 2014

Just when I think my to-do list can't get any longer...

it doubles.

Monday, 13 October 2014

Throwing it into the hands of fate... let's see what happens. Stay tuned.

Ingredients for today's awesome Sunday =

1. This movie, viewed with the SFAM*


2. Purchase of this book

3. And this diary


4. Varnishing of new chair for balcony


5. Sunshine

* SAFM = Sister From Another Mister. Possibly the only person I could see that movie with because she's the only one who 'gets' the Mona-Lisa Saperstein references.

Today marks three years since I began this blog.

Every day.

For THREE years.

One Thousand and Ninety Eight posts.

And people say I can't stick to one thing for any great length of time.*

* And by 'people' I also mean myself

That is all.

Happy Weekend!

Thursday, 9 October 2014

New goodies from GU and a fab film screening of the third year's work make for an excellent day. 

Wednesday, 8 October 2014

Again with the dumb idea to take a nap when I get home from work because I was THAT tired.

Now I'm wired and will doubtless be unable to sleep until the wee hours.

Grrrrr. Self-administered smack upside the head for me.

Tonight at the Regent Theatre, this woman proved she is all class and dignity. She really is.

Gap, your sizing scares me. Because I've lost a bit of weight recently (but I'm not really skinny), you now consider me to be a size 2. TWO!! FFS. Makes me want to eat a Big Mac.

Being school holidays and a weekend, I thought Ikea would be packed... instead it was actually relatively quiet. Of course, that meant I wandered more, which meant I spent more. Sigh. No restraint.

Saturday, 4 October 2014

Really need to start getting out of bed earlier... even on the days when I have nothing urgent to do. Maybe then I wouldn't be hit with insomnia at night.

Friday, 3 October 2014

OK, so I didn't get through nearly as many things on my to-do list as I wanted, but I at least made a start... and I think I'll work this weekend... after I go to Ikea and get one of those sun-loungers for my balcony, so I can work outside in the sunshine.

Thursday, 2 October 2014

I really need to find some motivation to get through all the things on my to-do list.

If only you could buy motivation on Amazon. Or eBay.

Only I would be dopey enough to not know that when you upgrade from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5, you need to get a smaller SIM card.

Now I have to wait 3-5 days before I can set it up!!


At least my new Macbook Air is awesome.
