To be honest, I got one big batch of t-shirts from ThinkGeek a couple of years ago, and another big batch from Topatoco a couple of weeks ago. Went very smoothly both times, especially considering I'm located in one of those ghastly, outlandish parts of the world that are not America. But obviously not a large enough n to reliably attest reliability.

Also, I forgot to mention Doc Martens and Paint It Black by the Rolling Stones as fashion inspirations. :-)

So, as of yesterday we, too, have Netflix here in the wonderful land of Oz. The selection is not the greatest (yet?), but it's cheap, the interface is nice and unlike iTunes it works on my Linux box, which makes it more attractive for me to have a film or show I'm not overly excited about just run on the side while I...

I knowwwwwwww, right? It's a must-see!! :-D I hope Australian Netflix has it.
elizathetroll:
Sadly no, but Quickflix has it on DVD, and I put it on my queue just now like it's 2005.

So, this is vaguely inspired by this week's blog homework, which is about favourite scents and for some reason made me think about scents to wear, a.k.a. perfumes, colognes, aftershaves and so on. And I realised that I can tell you exactly how much perfume I've used in my life. The reason is very simple: it was all from one bottle...

Not the tommy part.  The volume. 
adelina:
I don't wear perfume either. The only bottles I have are from my mom and one from a BF a million years ago. I think they are both Avon. I should probably throw them out, but since I don't see them (garage) I haven't even thought of it until now.

Today I managed my first 50kg strict overhead press, which brings me so much closer to my life-long dream of obtaining a European railroad passenger's license.

Ohhhh *blush* the "license" part confused me. I know some driving/operating licenses here require being able to life a certain amount of weight (but not over one's head-- just off the ground-- not completely sure tho.) // I thought maybe your life-long dream included wearing one of those classic blue/white engineer overalls with matching cap. ;-)

@adelina Well, I do have to admit that Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver was one of my favourite books as a kid. But as far as I remember, I never had any ambition to take on their career.

I bought a pack of black hair bands today and managed a passable high pony tail (I think), but one or two strands were not quite long enough and escaped. So here's the crucial question: will my genitals immediately fall off if a use hair pins to tame those, and if so, will this have any serious medical consequences?

Easy question. Your C+B brings light, love and happiness to the world. <3

@adelina Dangit, I had no idea. You say the sweetest things. // As regarding the luscious locks (even though I fear they are much less luscious than how I remember them from my youth, what with my hair being a lot thinner now and mostly gray), should I ever master the dark and mysterious art of the selfie, I'll make sure to put up a more contemporary profile pic which shows them off.

So yesterday, I finally got around to watching Maleficent, and it is the best. I had heard that it was a good movie, but I honestly wasn't prepared for just how good it is. I must warn you that the following will contains spoilers, so if you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you rectify that immediately before scrolling past the pictorial evidence...

Well, I do have one major reason. I respect your opinion. ( I know you wouldn't put your stamp of approval on a crap movie. )

Well, one person's crap is another person's fertiliser.

Happy birthday, Jimi Hendrix! Oh, and also me!

Here's how ancient I am: one more year, and my PhD is legally allowed to drink alcohol in the US. That is, if my PhD were legally a person. Which it well might be, given that corporations and bundles of cells are in some states considered persons, but I am no lawyer.

In vaguely related news...

If you could only listen to a single artist for the rest of your life, who would you pick and unless it is David Bowie, why?

lyamoon:
Depeche Mode... Just love them ! <3
adelina:
Oh, I don't know-- this is such a tough question. (I know I'd definitely get sick of listening to the same artist all the time.) I'll have to percolate on this for a while.
