Some favourites

Addicted to: Overheard in the Newsroom

Major (and long standing) girl crush: Annabel Crabb
Seriously, she could simply rewrite Spandau Ballet lyrics and I would adore her.
Not only is Pip a bloody legend, she’s PROLIFIC.
Perusing: The (magazine) Inside Out’s blog and all the linky love it gives you
Imagining: All the things I could do with products from this company.
Kitchen splashbacks, wall art, concrete
Reading: My first ever David Sedaris book – When you are engulfed in flames
I always wanted to read his stuff but when I’d get to the bookshop would either forget his name completely or think Neil Sedaka, knowing that just couldn’t be right. Because of this, his latest piece in The New Yorker is just delightful.
Enjoying: Speaking of Daylesford, the latest Victoria Tourism ad for Daylesford.
Yes it’s getting a ridiculous amount of airplay but it’s just so evocative and Victoria Tourism campaigns shit all over those from other states in this country.
Cooking: A number of things from the Homemade cookbook, some old favourites and some new ones – like the self-saucing sticky date and pecan pudding I found in Campion and Curtis’ In the Kitchen tome.
Surprised: By how much I am enjoying teaching helping my ESL mature-aged student with her English for university assignments and workplace correspondence.
Planning: To start my first little foray into crafting – making mobiles and wall-hangings out of images from my piles library of food magazines.

    I LOVE Dalyesford, it's one of my favourite places in the world. I do not like the girl in the ad, she cheapens my lovely Daylesford, the slapper.
    Love DS, I don't think he's written a bad thing yet.

    I have the very same David Sedaris book on my bedside table right now. At the moment Juju Sundin's 'Birth Skills' is a more pressing read (!), but I am planning to finish the Sedaris when I can…

    I'm reading my first David Sedaris book too (Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim). It was the only one available at the library at the time (not the only book just the only DS book). Rediscovering the library too. Highly recommend it. DS and libraries, that is.

    Victoria recycles a song from "Oh Brother where art thou".

    Queensland recycles a song from the friggin Monkees!

    I am just not able to assimilate you with the craft project. Ingenious idea, to put to use all that which you must otherwise recycle. But ….mobiles……I will believe it when I see it. Of course, you shall be famous. they shall become de rigeur in fancy kitchens all over the world. you shall have to employ multiple mobilers to keep up with demand. First the idea, then the $$$$$

    Did you hear a 26 year old is taking over the editor position of the New Yorker. Makes me feel old and untalented.

  • Suse

    That's how Victoria is advertised outside Victoria?

    Sheesh. We look very rustic. And disturbingly religious.
