Just one of those nights when I feel like writing... it's nearly half-past ten at night, which means it's roughly an hour or so past my normal bedtime as I'm usually an early bird. But this is what happens when you try to fit too much into your life and your brain doesn't remember how to shut down.

Now I've started writing, I have no idea what to continue with. Thoughts too fragmented. I'm sending myself to bed.

I know, I'm shocked too.

I just realised I'm kind of missing... well most aspects of blogging. Being part of an online community, diarising my thoughts, being able to look back over past posts and remember what has happened in my life. It's been strange with JU, I stayed away for a while because relationship kind of soured with my "real life" friends who also blogged on this site and then I just forgot to come back. Keeping a diary used to be a huge part of my life but it's not something I fi...

Hey you guys

What's doing? I just kind of feel like writing at the moment -- even though I'm at work and already writing a whole lot of other stuff. I'm feeling just generally positive about life today. I'm having a good hair day and I'm debuting a gorgeous teal coat I acquired in Sydney last month, I just went out on an interesting interview and I have a full-but-not-too-full afternoon that should still see me get out of work on time. All is well.

Add to this the EXTREMELY AWESOME fact th...

Hi all

So, like, what's happening? Over here, not a whole lot... which is pretty much just what people say when they can't be bothered thinking about what really has been going on in their lives. And since that's no way to write a blog, I'd better start thinking.

Matthew and I have started walking in the mornings. It's totally rad. We get up at early o'clock and walk for about 3 kilometres around our place. It was a bit of a struggle at first, especially considering Matthew's not really a ...

Hi everyone

Life's awesome. I've been walking on sunshine for the past week or so -- for no real reason except that I'm just happy. Matthew and I had a great Christmas in Melbourne and New Year's on the Sunshine Coast but it's great to be back sleeping in a normal bed again, instead of on the floor on dodgy blowup matresses (or no matress at all) in other people's houses. So maybe that's why I'm so happy... I'm getting a normal amount of sleep again!

While I was on holidays I started looki...

So I'm at work and it's nuts here at the moment. Firstly, because tomorrow we are having new carpet laid (hooray!!!) so everyone has packed up all their crap so we can move desks out of the way. I've already cleaned up my area but there are still people scurrying around the place as the office space becomes barer and barer.

Secondly, and more frustratingly, the system we write our stories into has died. Everything I'm writing today is finished and all I have to do is click "Send" but I can't ...

Afternoon everybody

How are we all? I'm great. I'd all but given up on blogging but a kind comment from a friend the other day inspired me to come back and post once again. Here's hoping they live to regret their encouragement!

Things Tegan-way are going well. I'm now well and truly married and it is the funnest ever! Matthew and I are loving just hanging out with one another all the time. I can't give the institution enough praise. I'm telling all my single friends to go forth and get hit...

Hey

Well, guess what? We looked through a unit yesterday. And it's pretty much perfect. I'm really excited because I feel like I've been waiting for this for ages! (I guess it hasn't really been that long) I'm also excited because I'm running out of room in my bedroom and under my parents' bed for our rapidly expanding collection of homewares! God bless our generous friends and relatives who keep showering us with gifts!!

So the place is cool -- two bedrooms (one's tiny, which will be our ...

I'm feeling a little uninspired this week about what to write for an editorial. Almost as if I know some sort of inspriration will come, but that it just hasn't come yet. Well, I figured I'd do a bit of writing anyway and if something cool came out of it, great. If not, I still have tomorrow to draw something together.
I've been searching the web for cool recipes today. On the weekend I came across those fresh pasta packages they sell in the supermarket of pre-made ravioli. Now there are thing...

Hi there

Well the working day is nearly drawing to a close, thank the Lord! I've been working today and I'm tired. It's Saturday here in Australia at the moment, for all you people livin' in the past in the USA. It's the first time I've done a Saturday shift -- pretty much a long, boring day of ringing people's answering machines and hoping my reason for being at work isn't validated by a UFO landing or outbreak of the Black Plague. In which case I'd have to stay late and write stories about ...

Greetings, tout le monde

Maybe I'm out of the loop or something, but only today did I stumble across pro-ana and pro-mia websites -- for the uninitiated, web communities helping people become better anorexics and bulimics.

I was shocked by what I saw and read... these girls (I didn't see any by guys) and their obsessions with their weight, and the "thinspiration" pictures of skeletal models and actresses that these women aspired to look like. Dozens of jagged ribs and knobbly elbows. Advic...

Sometimes you have to go out of your way to find something to chuckle about, other times life's quirky joys come to visit you in the comfort of your own office. This is one of the latter.

Some may argue the chief of fashion crimes is a visible panty line, others (such as my good friend Champas) cringe at the sight of a miniskirt paired with ugg boots.

For me, woman wearing an anklet under stockings gets me every time.
