Yay! New nekomimi from Nekochii :)


Happy Monday!

I think it’s time for one of those round up posts of “stuff” I’ve done, or eaten, or used, and LOVED over the past month or so. :D


Basco Gluten Free Carrot Cake packet mix. Picked this up from Coles to make up for the Eurovision party last night, and it went down a treat with the gluten free and gluten full alike! :) Had a nice ginger taste!

Wellaby’s Gluten Free Cheese Ups. I shouldn’t be too surprised that these are a product of Greece given they’re like the packaged snack version of Greek Cheese Triangles. Om nom nom.

At Home

The gorgeous Twenty8 Moituriser I was sent by the lovely ladies at Like Chocolate for Women. Perfect for helping my skin with this cold air around, and with a nice, light, scent. :)

Viva Computer and TV screen wipes that I picked up from a Kleenex Mums event. Great for getting the coffee off my laptop screen (???) and dust off the phone!

On the Interwebs

Out and About

Dressing up. I brought my suitcase of costumes down from the garage :)

Karaoke. Sober.

Air guitar.

Being a Cat. Or a Catgirl.

Tijuana Cartel. They rocked at the Great Northern on Saturday night. And I loved their two support acts: Pigeon and Holly Who. (Holly Who are playing at The Great Northern again on June 23. Free Entry.) xx

More music, please! :D



Happily received the signed hard copy of The Jan Austen Argument‘s Somewhere Under the Rainbow yesterday. *swoon*

Yes, you need it.

(in mirror form. heh)

In spite of my hooded appearance, I did not steal the copy of Season 3 of Packed to the Rafters I have in my hot little hand. I won it in a comp that that WANTED to win a holiday in.

And so, you my lucky people get to share in my spoils. Or have them. Whatevers.

So, yeah, to enter, just comment up to once a day. I don’t care what you say. You could tell me about a prize you won and really didn’t care for. Up to you. Oh and extra daily entries if you tweet or facebook about the comp. Just link up to your link in a new comment so I can find you.

Will accept entries from anywhere (region 2, 4 DVD apparently). And there may be extra awesomeness in the package if you win. Like Threadless stickers or glitter.


Okay EDIT!

I may be extending the time of this giveaway. Because there may be more prizes. Or a bigger prize, anyway. As in I should be not wanting to have received seasons 1-3 on DVD. For now, let’s just say this comp isn’t closing just yet…. And keep entering, because you’ll at least be in the running for season three, but it MIGHT be seasons 1-3! whoa!

And, you should totally like on facebook. GO! ;)

EDIT: I will now be able to give away the first three season of Packed to the Rafters on DVD. Yay! So please enter to win. COMPETITION WILL CLOSE A WEEK FROM NOW aka 8pm Tuesday 7th, with the winner selected at random using the plugin “And the winner is”

You may enter once a day with a new comment. Or comments about tweets or facebook shares. PLEASE make sure you make a NEW COMMENT for each entry, otherwise I can’t count it.

Some Days

Some days I just want to stay curled up in my bed, safe with my Woof.

Wouldn’t you?


A day in the library, making sense of my data, I can and will get this all done. It may not wind up all purrty, but that’s okay. It will still be good, make sense and reflect well upon me. Right?

10 minutes of HELL

September 20, 2010 · 2 comments


Bootcamp this morning was short but fun. A one-on-one session, because noone else was there!

After the warm-up, I did –

15 box jumps (up and down off a foot high step)
20 jumping pullups (from hanging to pulled up)
30 situps
?600m run
30 situps
20 jumping pullups
15 box jumps

New stuff in there for me. And I nearly died. But I pushed through, and got ten minutes flat.

2 weeks off now, due to holidays and long weekends.

Better get a run or two in while I’m in Brissie, hey?

(it looks like we’re getting a team together at work for Train for the Brain fun run in November)

Sell Art Online

Saw the above picture googling ‘fiona’… cool.

Big day, new things. Trying to focus. I think it’s positive. At step in the right direction.


In other news. What’s better than freshly waxed eyebrows? Why, when it’s FREE! (Thanks to the $15 loyalty voucher I got from Brazilian Butterfly!)


(oh yeah, washed hair is also a good thing!)


I probably wear makeup about once a fortnight when I’m heading out for dinner and/or drinks, so you’ll usually see me without makeup on this blog, but why not join in the fun of Bloggers without Makeup? :p

Bloggers without Makeup

I’m in the Uni library, on the final day of my semester, writing an essay about modifying a LOTE curriculum to make the language learning of a girl with Asperger’s disorder more successful. It’s an interesting topic, and does not require makeup (though it does require coffee!)

Nearly there!
