Ephemera

The ramblings of a lunatic expat.

I am Californian who relocated to Melbourne, Australia in 2006..

I'm a manicurist and a madwoman and I do a damn good job at both.
I just add chia seeds to whatever juice I happen to be drinking. Or water, if that’s all I have. Clem got me into chia seeds on our road trip/holiday last year. They really fill you up and I was amazed at how much energy they gave me. They’re a godsend when I’m busy at work and don’t have any snacks on hand. I get the shakes when I’m hungry, and nobody wants a trembling manicurist. But yeah, it’s kind of like drinking chunky snot. But, as one of my friends said when I accidentally inhaled a fly* at the beach (the bastard flew up my nose), “Calm down, Erin. That can’t be the worst thing you’ve ever swallowed.”
*I coughed the fly up two days later. I *knew* I hadn’t swallowed it. The fucker was in my lung.
