Across Borders

Borders is a BAD BAD place for people like me who exercise no self-control when it comes to books.

Saturday seemed like any other normal day. Tagged along with The Boy since he needed a little spinal action at the chiro. I should have known better. I should have stayed at the clinic waiting room instead of wandering around the credit card hazard that
Bondi Junction Westfield is *$kaching$*

The last thing I remembered was walking past Borders and I thinking - "Pffftt ... you're NOT going to make me buy anything this time!"

The next thing I remembered was looking down and I was holding a BIG bag with "Borders" splashed across it as if to mock me and what looked like 1 ... 2 ... 3 ... omigod 5IVE freaking books and 1 magazine!!

Damn you Borders! Damn you!! *shakes fist at Borders*

About 3 Saturdays ago, The Boy and I headed down to Canberra for Floriade, the annual flower show.

Really the only thing worth heading to the the capital city for if you're not looking to score some weed or firecrackers.

The drive there was pretty ordinary with a customary pit stop at macca's for brekkie on the way and then a change of drivers. And of course every road trip is never complete without some squabbling about how I drive - Shaddup now, you! *grumble grumble*

We got there in one piece and still very much together.

And of course the camera had to NOT work when you need it! Anyway we took pics using my trusty camera phone.

Floriade? - Beautiful. I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Lunch was calamari and chips at an irish bar in the city and then The Boy drove back while I drifted off into Dreamland ... as I should be :)

Land Of The Rising Sun

Land of the rising sun ... damn straight!

Saturday was a freaking scorcher and I dragged The Boy to the Japan Festival at Darling Harbour after the driving debacle.


I don't know what was wrong with people but 10 mins under that intense heat was enough to send me running for cover under trees, electric poles and even people.

People were sprawled out on the grass at Tumbalong Park happily bumping up their chances of getting melanoma. I saw plenty of little girls decked out in their colourful yukatas - are their parents nuts?! At least the boys were in their right frame of mind and wore shorts and t-shirts.

lady, you must be melting

choi! this uncle must be REALLY hot!

Me - furiously fanning myself and The Boy with complimentary fan collected at one of the booths. Damn PANAS!

I would have enjoyed their performances a lot more if I didn't feel like I was being baked alive.

The Boy and I managed to catch some drum action and part of the opening ceremony before escaping from the 42 degree weather.

what's with men and their drums?

The food was a little disappointing. There was a GRAND TOTAL of 5 food stalls ... not so great when you have 2 very hot and very hungry people who love their food. Okonomiyaki, fish cakes & yakisoba we had.

Left the festival, hopped into the car, turned up the air-conditioning.

The Boy: So where do you want to go now?
Me : Anywhere! Anywhere! Anywhere there's air-con! Westfield la! *fan fan fan*
The Boy: Hahaha

Don't know why he thought that was funny but I was serious ...

Headache Only!

How did it happen?!

Everytime The Boy and I have an argument it's over something ridiculously petty and it just boils over and becomes bigger than it should have been.

Granted every relationshop has their highs and lows but it's frustrating that something trivial becomes something that could make or break a relationship.

What happened to laughing at yourself and laughing with each other? What happened to not taking things too seriously?

How could we spend an hour tearing our hairs out, screaming (in hopes that the louder we scream the more we'd understand) and end it just short of strangling each other?

Things would be so much easier if you realised that I'm always right and just let me win!

headache only

Licence To Kill

I can't believe I failed the goddamn test! Over the stupidest thing.

No - I did NOT collide with another car.

No - I did NOT kill anyone.

And yes - I STOPPED at a stop sign.

see ... I stopped wert

I was flunked because I didn't go far out enough when turning right at the traffic lights. Argh!!

How do you fail someone with an overall driving score of +90%?! That can't be right ...

Another test in 3 weeks. Must. Not. Fail.

Attack Of The Alpha Male

Help! I live with an alpha male!

Leader of the pack? Man of action? A man's man?

Incredibly desirable personality but can be highly frustrating at times especially when you're driving and he's on the passenger seat.

Situations requiring someone to step up and take the reigns? - Perfect! Love him!

Situations where the driver is already incredibly tense when driving and then continue to tell the driver what she is doing wrong and not telling her how to correct the problem? - Can someone please hand me a noose?

Breathe ... breathe - in with the love and out with the hate. No darl, I don't hate you but god you can be annoying sometimes!

My Secret

The first step to overcoming addiction is admitting that you have a problem.

I have a problem.

I'm addicted to goss - no not gloss and no not floss either.

Yes - goss.

Lindsay, Jessica, Nicole, Ashlee, Paris, Brad & Ange - hello, I know them all.

Is that half a forest in my room?

Pick me up! Pick me up! You know you want me ...

Help me.
