Long Way From Happiness

Apparently Elton John's given up song writing.
This was the view from my window in china, and below is the front of the building. Oddly missing the ironic freedom that is living in a foreign country, not speaking the language, living with strangers, having no income, and being told what your doing the next day at 9pm the night before.

road to nowhere

Dear Wildfox,

You always make me want to pack a bag of frilly knickers, childrens t-shirts, my old ballet skirts and denim shorts underwear and run away to a hick town in the middle of nowhere to get wild in a classy motel (bookings by the hour), while someone gets their seed on and documents it all on film.

I feel this could have negative consequences.

Love and shit

I'm 2D so talk to me

A Dear friend of mine alerted me to the fact im currently chilling on a wall in city beach.

That's what i stand like when i chill on walls...apparently

i now invite you all to visit me and talk to the poster version of me. I promise it'll be the most receptive conversation you'll ever have with me as i'm much more friendly and responsive in 2D.
with love

in my element

Waiting for the Hart

Around a month an a half ago, i was sitting on my bed/desk/cupboard in the half of the bedroom that was mine in a model apartment in Shanghai checking my email, when the most perfect t-shirt in the world flashed before my eyes (my computer has a glitch so it was literally flashing).

Here it is...Neon Hart, by Jess Hart, Waiting for the Sun, Doors t-shirt

Is there a more perfect t-shirt? no there is not.

One month and a half later, i'm back home in brissy town...cruising around the city killing time when i wander into general pants not really expecting to find anything but SHAZAM, there it is, in all its glory. Size too big? yes. perfect. I take my shirt to the counter where the wonderful sales assisant is finnishing a conversation with his fellow employee "yeah but there's like nothing youse can do about it can ya? ( after 3 months in shanghai you'd think that the sound of aussie slang with a subtle hint of bogan would be endearing...sadly not).

Now let me just say after waiting a month and a half to get my grubby mitts on this baby i was pretty sure nothing would ruin the moment i purchased it. Until the sales assistant asks if the shirt is a gift for my boyfriend.

1. no it isn't thanks to the extreme lack of Johnny Depp, Heath Ledger and Emile Hirsch's in brissy.

2. it was in the girls section

3.don't give me weird looks mr sales assistant, you just said "youse" which sums up everything.

frustration of waiting 1.5 months, and sales assistant aside. I am truly, madly, deeply, savage garden-ly in love with the shirt.

is it not amazing ?

peace lovers
