Hey Peeps.

In the following episode I am going to officially kill off The Blog. This is my 201st blog post. It is time to either be reborn anew or simplify my online life.

I am so sick of having 28 logins and blah blah.

I will eventually post the details of any new blogging adventures on the profile page of my flickr site.

For now I can be found re-tweeting interesting things said by other people on twitter, on facebook and of course flickr.



Backlit wings.

Things I want to remember that I learned and will probably forget :

Jeans are better when they have been dried with heat. They fit better and are less likely to gather around ones knees.

Having feelings for someone isn't profound. It just is. Enjoy it. (Not related to previous sentence)

Stop eating wheat. Being sneaky is only making me feel yuk. (Continuing to eat wheat will not counteract the jeans not fitting properly problem)

Study is fun. It is. It is not a chore. I have a lot to learn and won't by watching the entire West Wing boxed set for a 3rd time. Read stuff!

Hmmm. I think that is all I can remember for today.


Spring, it comes.

Perfecting the death stare since 1978

Man. This would have been around 1983. I am feeling so old right now. I fucking hated that dress but I was forced to wear it because my mother could (and still can) throw bigger tantrums than me.

I don't know to who the elbow on the right belongs but the hand and blue dress and lower face belong to Allison. She lived in my street 2 doors down.

I don't know who else was there. I have some vague recollection of the cake sprinkles being the long coloured ones and not 100s and 1000s. Disappointments come thick and fast at that age.

I don't think I was planning on punching someone, I suspect it is more likely I was holding something with my left hand.

Strange photo.


Adventures in sewing

This is a recent making project... a simple line embroidery. The design was taken from my nana's curtains. Very stylish if I do say so myself.

It has been inspiring my making for half life my life.


Something cute

to distract you. I took the you cunts pic from my flickr site cos my boss wanted to see my photos and now it's gone from my blog. Boring.


Productive day

, originally uploaded by r a v e n 78.

It always takes a sick day in order to get things done.

First I stripped my bed. Then tossed all the blankets and cat beds and pillows and threw them on the balcony. I vacuumed my room and everything. Then I washed the windows out the front and the path and the dog. By that stage it was lunchtime and I was pretty sure I'd earned me some potato cakes.

I'll have to go back to work tomorrow. I won't get a thing done.
