You know when it starts to get colder, the uggs go on, the mulled wine comes out, and you'e all tucked up under your blanket and all you want is the touch of a nice boy/girl to give you that warm, sparkly feeling inside?
I'm there already, and it's only May. God help me: I'm thinking of placing a personals...

I was just in Australia and I was thinking exactly the same thing!
And then...I came home. Where it is supposedly the beginning of summer.
And its a whooooooollllleee lot colder.
The need for a man/teddy increases! xxx

Well, it's been a long time, but so much has happened.
I'm now living Harry-Potter style in the smallest room known to man - mostly because I had to escape this dude who was obsessed with me. He's this Egyptian guy whos lived in Oz for 20 years and has not intergrated at all, so I found myself explaining certain aspects of the...

Question: How do hormone-charged little 16 year old fuckwits managed to finish Year 12?

Even worse, will have to face said fuckwits at Uni next year, who will outnumber my by then aging 24 y.o. bones 20:1. I know the answer lies somewhere between copious amounts of alcohol and fornication, but the prospect still spooks me a bit. Things are getting very tense...

Sooo... I went to a jewellery auction tonight @ the RMIT local, and I kissed a girl.
Perhaps not an unusual occurance for a boozy night out, and yet I felt that something deeper occurred.
Could I, as I have so long asserted, actually be bi? Will the 2 year drought be finally broken? Will something come of this..? Oh God, do I truely hope so...

Decided it was time to end the piercing silence and update my fucking blog.
It's been hanging over my head since I got the internet back a couple weeks ago.

Ruby is fully operational biatches - and past my 1 yr anniversary! Maybe next year I'll top it off with getting a set acceptance and going pink? Ah, a girl can dream. Anyhow, between...

Dr. Sketchy's just did a thing in Columbus. I didn't go, but I heard lots of awesome things about it. Havana had some information up about it a few blogs back.

So - I'm on the campaign trail again... yep, a Party of One, searching for a Place to hang my hat and rest my tired bones.

There's few things more stressful than finding a new place to live. Despite disrupted sleep and slight case of anxiety, am somewhat pissed that the Rahe-Holmes scale rates moving house at only a 20. Below 'Change in Personal...

One of the weirdest things about me has always been my accent.

I have a American/Canadian accent, you see. I was born with it. Despite never having been to Canada. Or the Americas. Or anywhere but Australia and the U.K.

Ok, so maybe i wasn't born with it. It's not like babies recieve their accents through the placenta or something.
But...

I went to high school with a girl who had the same thing. An inexplicable American accent. She'd never been overseas.

soobie:

Is it such a monumental flaw? Why is it a flaw at all? What's wrong with accents?? Personally I'm a fan. smile

Christ! Having just read the last entry, am shocked & dumbfounded how long it's been since I've synched my blogs. From now on I will post in all at once.

Anyway... now for the newest installment from Melbourne.

When it comes to suburban irritation, I am the Mistress of All I Survey.

I can moan about metro-snobs, the warring 'happy' couples, the dogs, the screaming children across the road. I can go on about my crappy suburb for days.

But today, I finally nailed it: the nexus of my irritation - I finally have a real reason to leave my leafy inner-suburban nightmare:

People here wear Crocs.

Not just the odd person, either. Everyone here seems to have a pair of these multi-coloured monstrocities in their cupboards.

They say you can tell a lot about a person by what kind of shoes they are wont to wear.
Stilettos = a feminine, possibly high maintenence persona; Joggers suggest a sporty, ready-for-anything attitude; whilst the more laid back amongst us may opt for Thongs (flip-flops, to you Yanks).

Yes, those holey, rubbery nightmares originally intended for the gnarled tootsies of fishermen have infiltrated my personal space, and there's not a lot I can do about it, short of moving out.

I realise...

I know it may be a little over the top but crocs are the bane of my existence. Seriously.

You wanna start a cross-country anti-crocs brigade? There could be uniforms and badges and we could avenge the death of good fashion...

With my VCE coming up next year, am developing e-bay induced tics.

There really should be a new name for Ebay-related mental disorders. Bid-o-philia? Ebay-anxiety? DE-BAYpression? In any case I'm on edge; my precarious financial situation forcing me to lock into a battle of wills with other bidders - in my mind they become penny-pinching soccer mothers in 4WDs and accountant fathers with their spreadsheets...

Ooooooooohh - today was spent being the most hungover I've been in a couple years.

Managed to stave off the black cloud of death somewhat by sleeping right in until 2.45 today, but by early evening it had caught up with me. I had to persuade myself to go up the road for supplies. Used the carrot of going to the 7/10 - but...

So I just got up.

The sun is smiling (yes - smiling) and birds are capering around like they're cast in a Disney movie.
And I have to spend another day at work.
Le sigh.

I've often been accused of not wanting to work, as if I was some selfish cunt who didn't want to support our schools, hospitals and daily copy of...
