in a bad way -
I locked myself out of the house this morning with a baby in a pusher and not a cent to my name. I hadn't even eaten breakfast.
in a good way -
Neighbours who just step in and take my baby and give me $50 to cab it back and forth to pick up a key.
in an excellent way -
mixtape zine is fantastic! And such an honour to be a contributor.
in a fattening way -
I have a box of 48 giant freddo frogs to sell for a fundraiser. And I don't even like freddo frogs but I know I'll end up eating a whole lot of them.
in a girly swot kind of way -
I had a meeting at work yesterday and got my next project and even though it is dry and boring I'm so happy to be working!
in a consumer kind of way -
I went shopping for clothes yesterday which is a very rare thing indeed. Brought on by the realisation that my work wardrobe is about a decade out of date and I'm tired of looking like a boring old fat slag. I discovered there is a shop which stocks aussie and new zealand designers who make clothes just for big girls. It is wickedly expensive, but somehow just knowing it exists makes me happy even if I can't afford to shop there. I actually bought three items of clothing in the one binge (unheard of) and none of them came from a discount chain store, or were jeans, underwear or shoes. Time to clean stuff out of my present collection. I also found this place online and while I don't need any jewelry right now, if I did this is where I would be buying it from. I also found a shop in Melbourne which sells Japanese magazines. Luckily for my bank balance, cotton time and cotton and paint are not due in for a few more weeks.
in a global village kind of way -
this map. Who the heck are all you guys?
in a cultural revolution kind of way -
the way Amy has taken to saying my mummy works for the government
in an annoying kind of way -
I crocheted madly on the tram to and from my city ventures yesterday and got through half a blanket block but when I started to pack up to get off the tram I looked over what I had done and I'd made a whopper mistake in about row 4. I'm getting cocky.
Now I need to go and get stuff done.
