First my laptop was taken hostage....

Picture 994


Thinking that this little terrorist would tire of these games momentarily, I decided to call his bluff and wait him out.

Oh, he tired… Read full post »

A Good Day!

Yesterday was my sisters 19th birthday. We went to a German restaurant near the Opera House here in Sydney. A decent amount of red wine and delicious food, along with the company of some of the people I love the most, all came together to make for a wonderful evening. I… Read full post »

Mystery of the Arts Solved!!

It's arguably the most famous painting in the world, but DaVinci's Mona Lisa has always bothered me for some reason. I feel a niggling of doubt whenever I see this masterpiece. Today, armed with nothing more than boredom and a purpose, I set out to discover why.

I read about… Read full post »

 Miss Universe Australia finalist, Stephanie Naumoska


Australia recently held the annual Miss Australia pageant to select the country's representative for the Miss Universe competition. One of the finalists was Stephanie Naumoska, in my opinion an irresponsible choice. Co… Read full post »

I'm Getting Married!!!!

My fiance isn't aware of our pending nuptials yet, but that's ok, right? Right! In fact he doesn't know I exist, but I never let the little things in life bother me. I've heard him say he doesn't like dating, but I've always enjoyed a challenge. My previous unaware fiance,… Read full post »

Suck It Up, Shirley!



I'm feeling a little embarrassed about the state of Australia's biker gangs. Firstly, they don't really look like bikers. They have a couple of tattoos, but so do a lot of teenage girls these days. In fact, my little sister has a 'bitchin' tattoo on her calf that… Read full post »

Look Out! It's the Grammar Police.

What is it lately with all the posts whining about the correct use of grammar? Even spelling has come under attack. Sure, I have little pet peeves too, but I'm not about to have a big rant singling them out and therefore making people second guess before they post. I'll have… Read full post »

March the 8th was International Women's Day. It was wonderful to see women all around the world celebrating their achievements. Victories hard won, but made easier by the women before us that paved the way for the freedoms that we enjoy today.

As I read about women marching and celebrating,… Read full post »
