isay: The outlook for Melbourne this weekend. Bugger. 1. I’m glad I’m not going to the races this year 2. I’m glad I have no plans for Saturday aside from breakfast at Huxtable (which is a block from my apartment) 3. GRASS-MUNCHING COCKCHAFER BEETLES??!!
This was my lunch today
some nice bottle of pinot grigio I can’t remember the name of olive crumbed anchovy mozzarella, smoked tomato jalapeno & cheddar croquette tempura eggplant prawn fritter, shiso roasted duck breast, soy braised daikon, sour plum grilled asparagus, parmesan, crumbed egg strawberry and mascarpone cheesecake, pistachio stilton and quince oatcake oreo espresso I had a long lunch...

I changed the link to my ask-box to read
“Click here for naked pictures of me” The first person to respond was my mom.
This will be our 3rd attempt in as many years.
missambiguous: Taking The Boy to see “Otto the Ghost” and do the pumpkins/hayride/smelly animal zoo thing with our friends. He promises this year will be different. “Mom, this year I am 4-and-a-half and I promise to be brave of Otto.” Maybe he’ll notice just how unscary Otto really is. We’ll see. Ross has an awesome childhood story about something very similar and I am mentioning it in hopes...
Yes, I know
My mom is 60. Does she look amazing, or what? Thanks for the amazing genes, Mom. She also has some rad (recent) tattoos. Like, a big side piece on her torso. I’ll post pics another day. I don’t want to flood your dashboard with too much awesome.

vegenista: So here goes… I am a yoga school drop out. Yes. I am ashamed to admit, but I quit. It was too much while adjusting to my new job… I quit my new job, after quitting the yoga training, after having a panic attack & near nervous breakdown…Long story…It’s all good now, though… I have absolutely no idea where I am headed anymore. I’ve had to put A LOT into perspective…Fortunately, I...
I catch myself feeling really sorry for the contestants on Dancing with the Stars who get low scores (coughBristolPalincough). I know what it’s like to not be able to dance, and no, rhythm is not something you can be taught. I could learn to speak and write Arabic faster that I could learn how to two-step. Anyway, I don’t know why I feel sorry for them seeing as they’re all a...
A pilot didn't want to show the TSA his naked... →
TSA has a hard-on for airline crew members. As a flight attendant, the worst part of my often 16-hour workday was going through the security checkpoint. The rules were so arbitrarily enforced, I began carrying a print-out of TSA’s rules and pulling it out when I was challenged. This never went over well, but I was lucky to fly with awesome pilots who were happy to back me up. Where I got the...

10 Of The Grossest Stories You'll Ever Read →
You should all know by now that I am a sick and twisted individual and I love stuff like this (any old Fark.com people here will remember the famous zit thread). I could have done without the photos in this link, but I LOVE reading about gross bodily stuff, even though I’m a wuss who couldn’t even look at my own lacerated finger until it was stitched up.
Yes, I know, my sister is gorgeous →
I’ve only posted a million photos of her over the last couple of years. If you really want to admire her, go to her eBay store and buy some of her gorgeous vintage finds. She blogs here. And don’t be creepy or I’ll kick your ass. When we were in St Maarten I had to threaten to kill some sleazy Brazilian guy who was perving on her. Same goes for you lot.
Revisiting my teenage obsession with Depeche Mode for the first time in ages. I must have been 14 or 15. I think “Violator” had just come out. But I was always pissed off that I hadn’t been born at least 5 years earlier (see: my Duran Duran obsession) so that I could fully embrace New Wave at it’s height, so of course I drifted backwards until I was crankily brandishing my...
Abortion couple not guilty →
A Cairns couple charged over a home abortion have been found not guilty. A Cairns District Court jury took less than an hour to find Tegan Simone Leach, 21, and her partner Sergie Brennan not guilty of charges of procuring an abortion and supplying drugs to procure an abortion following a three-day trial.

Day 2 (or is it 3?) of being a one-armed wonder
Well, things are just hopping along merrily here at Casa de Cripple. For any of you just joining the fun, on Sunday I had surgery to repair a nerve and the flexor tendon in my right pinky finger after I cut it on the lid of a tin of tomatoes. Yep, it doesn’t get more mundane than this, folks. I guess it could have been worse. It could have been a badminton injury. Anyway, I thought about...
