I was soooo much fun to be around last week. Mirena hell combined with PMT hell and collided with moving house stress. It turned me into an emotional rollercoaster extraordinaire … until Friday.
I was a bliss bunny on Friday. I decided to pretend for a few hours that I didn’t need to pack and went for a haircut, then had lunch with the divine DD at a groovy Vietnamese place called Mama’s Buoi . We had the wagyu beef with green mango salad (below) and the vermicelli salad with lemongrass pork and spring rolls. Yum, yum, yum. Bulk fun day. Bulk. Fun.
Kev the Removalist would FREAK if he knew I’d been slacking off, so let’s just keep it as our little secret.
I also ignored Kev’s calls yesterday as I was walking into the cinema to see The Hobbit. I swear I’d been working my butt off up until that point. But it was sooooo hot and muggy in Sydney and soooo cool in the cinema. (My giddy aunt that movie is violent.)
But let me rewind to unhappier times …
>> I got bleak about my many failings on Monday with a blog called “I’m not proud of myself” sparked by, of all things, watching Harry Potter.
>> Reality gave me a hard shake on Tuesday when an old mate landed in intensive care after a stroke, in Worrying Less and Laughing More.
>> And on Thursday I was Shamed By Kev The Removalist (and possibly chatted up by him … there may also have been a kiss on the lips)
>> On Friday it felt wrong to blog about anything but Charlie Hedbo, so I wrote Celebrities Mourn Charlie Victims … and mused on the uneasy relationship stars have with the press.
>> And on Saturday I blogged about how the editor who commissioned me to go on a cruise to Hawaii made me pay … in a blog called Now Here’s Crazy Story.
