That said, I was so proud of myself after my first fortnight of budgeting- I was paid about $520, which leaves me with $420 for transport/food/alcohol and I managed to not spend $65. I have no idea how I did it, but I figured it made sense to reward myself. So I spent it (+$10) on things I WANTED (oh God I've missed that)
What did i buy? I hear you ask. Shoes of course! Last year, I fell in love with the Tony Bianco "Nemesis" wedge shoe boot. They're beautiful- but at $190 I really couldn't justify it right before a trip to Europe. Then I discovered Betts "Poppie" which is pretty much identical to the Biancos, for only $90. What luck, I just happened to have a 45% off voucher that my friend gave me. So I spent about a quarter what I would have, had I succumbed to the beauty of Tony Bianco, for a shoe that, from afar, looks the same. The are of course, faux suede as opposed to genuine, but that just means I can panic less when it rains, yes?
I have to tell you, they are THE comfiest shoes I've ever worn. Well, the comfiest shoes that make me 4-5inches taller than I actually am, that is. I mean, wedges are, of course, more comfortable than say a stiletto heel. It's just logic- there's more foot support which puts less stress on the ankles, balls and calves. Also, as the have a rather thick platform, there's none of that burning pain in the ball of your foot that you get with most shoes. I feel like I'm wearing flats! They're perfect. And they look good with pretty much anything- jeans, skirts, stockings, bear legs, socks- anything! I'm pretty much in love with them.
I'm feeling pretty poorly right now. I woke up this morning feeling like I'd been hit by a bus filled with mucous or something. Which sucks because I'm working tomorrow and the next day and I get the feeling that it will probably get worse. Right now, I'm functioning on a fairly regular level, with only the slightest hints of delirium. Tomorrow could be a different story.
Tonight I'm off to my first Ramshackle gig since last July, and their first since September. I just wish I wasn't sick because it's cutting into my enthusiasm. And I can't decide what to wear!
Expect photos soon, they're beginning to build up.
I think next time I'll convince him aqua is a good idea...
(I missed my calling as a hairdresser, clearly)
Stay tuned, more words and stuff are on the way! I can't guarantee they'll be coherent, because I woke up feeling like someone had hit me over the head with the flu hammer so who knows when the delerium will set in?

So monday was mine and J's third anniversary. We figured, since three is a much bigger number than one AND two, we should do something a bit more significant than we have in the past (last year we were too lazy to go out for a romantic dinner and ended up getting Thai delivered, so we could eat in the comfort of my loungeroom, with my mum. The year before we went to a small house party and played Mario on a Nintendo 64, 90s style). Last year for J's birthday we spent a night at Quay Grand Suites, which is a fabulous 5 star hotel in Circulr Quay (the place with the iconic view of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, for the non-Sydney-siders). We enjoyed it so much that we though we'd do that again this year. I mean, why research hotels when you already know of one you love?

Year 10 formal. I'm wearing a corset, and flats. J went with my friend Bonnie. I took my boyfriend of the time, and spent most of the night trying to convince people that J was my half brother. Oh how times change.
Mardi Gras :: Easter Long weekend.
May. Bottom Sarah's G themed 17th. dressed as a "guy", sculling a woodstock, right after giving a "geek" a mean one-handed wedgie. I commit to my roles.
(on the plus side, if I wore that outfit now, I'd have the boobs for it)
I think this photo was taken in 2007. It was the next year when the speech bubbles were added. Sarah is a genius at card-making.
We went through a stage where we used the word "tysoned" to mean drunk. Imagine my excitement when I saw "I love tyson v" written in pencil on a table at school. Alcohol was a big feature of year 11...

The doctor, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was charged with maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm on Carolyn DeWaegeneire and unnecessarily excising her clitoris during an operation in 2002.
The Crown alleged the 58-year-old widow did not give her consent for him to remove her genitals.
She told the jury he said he was going to remove a lesion but never mentioned removing anything else.
The defence argued he was trying to save her life.
He will be sentenced at a later date."
OK, firstly, please ignore how brief and horrible this article is. (I mean, what is the point of writing it at all?). Secondly:
What. The. Fuck.
Seriously- trying to save her life by removing her clitoris? It can't be replaced! You can't just get an implant and get on with your life! If it were a man, and they had to remove his penis to save his life, they sure as hell would have asked first.
And on that note, happy international women's day for Tuesday.
p.s. I'd like to say this will be the only time I tag my post with "genital mutilation" but I can't be so sure.
