19.06.09 – It’s terrible to start this off with a bad photo (but don’t you worry, I promise to end with one too) but these things are usually done in chronological order. The photo was taken in the middle of the night near a friends house. Isn’t it the prettiest No Parking sign ever!
23.06.09 – FUCK. Well, this is a little more subtle (and technically more “letters”) but it says it well enough. It still needs a couple of tweaks, particularly need to make the @ smaller. I think it’ll be great as a brooch.
29.06.09 – A big box arrived today full of organic bio-dynamically grown kiwifruit and tamarillos. The kiwifruit are not at all tangy, they’re really sweet. It’s strange. Two weeks later and we’ve got heaps left.
Also, to any US readers, the fuzzy fruit is called a kiwifruit, not a kiwi. A kiwi is New Zealand’s native flightless bird and a colloquial term for a New Zealander.
03.07.09 – Friday night was the Rocky Horror Picture Show party! It was a lot quieter than I thought it would be but the costumes were great and the band were fantastic (the Hardy Ha Has). The host was more cross dresser than drag queen unfortunately, my friends looked camper than her.
Anyway these are two of my friends who came to mine and The Boys house for pre party drinks. We managed to bribe the guy on the left to dress in the cat suit he happened to have with him. After some alcohol he was quite happy to pose like a rock star with my bass. This is also one of the few situations that allows for wearing tights as pants. If I had such amazing legs I’d probably wear tights as pant too.
The guy on the right is dressed as Brad (as if you didn’t already know that :]). Faces have been blurred to protect the not so innocents.
07.07.09 – I finally have my hands on the Gilmore Girls fourth season! I’ve become quite obsessed with watching their lives. A favourite past time of mine is pausing DVDs and laughing at the horrible faces. Zoooommmmbie Emily is coming to get you.
07.07.09 – The Boy helps run a monthly young professionals gathering with a speaker. This month we had Nathan Gray, he is the youngest Westerner to walk the length of the Great Wall of China, it took 2 years. Since then he has written a book and sold over 10,000 copies. You only have to glance at his CV to feel inadequate and inspired. Nathan is a lawyer, speaks eight languages, is trained in ballet, drama, speech and piano, he’s a photographer and has worked in all means of media!
Anyway, this is the wall that greets you as you walk into the Green Man pub where the meetings are held. This pub is very kitschy, it’s awesome.
07.07.09 – This is the outfit I wore to the meeting. Please look beyond the laser eyes, shiny face, and uncooperative fringe.
The lady at the medlab who took my blood spent the time I was there complementing my skirt and scissors necklace and enquiring about my business. I think she thought I was a student selling jewellery on the side, cause real adults don’t do that sort of thing for a living.
