Today I ….
Did 2 loads of laundry
Took puppy to animal behaviourist
Helped boyfriend man clean up his job site
Got flashed by a speed camera
Jumped my sillies out at BOUNCE
Ate KFC and watched Dr Who with friends
and I’ve just gotten into bed at quarter to 1am.
Good Saturday, sleep is best.
Short hair selfies.
I have been unbelievably self absorbed today.
What’s the best part about working in a corporate law firm, you ask.
Is it the professionalism, the high standards, the quality of the people or making a difference?
No, it’s the leftover lunch that is made to impress clients and there is always too much, too too much food and then we in office services get to have dibs.
Dude, so late to the table on this one, but Saga is such an amazing graphic novel.
I picked up Volume 1 because I love The Runaways which is also by Brian K. Vaughan (Molly Hayes is my spirit animal) and I read it all this morning, on the train and then in the lobby of my office before I got to my desk. Maybe I was a little late to start work.
Anyways it’s a space opera/drama about a couple of 2 different races who are escapees, with a newborn daughter and an agenda to be free from war.
The story is great, funny and poignant in all the right places. Currently searching Book Depository to buy the whole collection like, STAT.

I did the yoga this morning
or as I fondly refer to it - the yoghurt.
The way I butcher the English language is alarming, and entertaining.
My yoga instructor is a goddess, and she said her quads were sore as she had been bouncing around on a tramp yesterday… after further enquiry I have found out that
BOUNCE HAS A STUDIO HERE IN PERTH
now you better believe that as soon as the session was over I was on my work computer booking a session.
Saturday evening, come at me (and my quads)
sweet as blondies
It’s boyfriendman’s birthday today so I decided to bake him something ridiculous to have for breakfast this morning.
Cookies and Cups has some of the most colourful, sugar laden recipes I have ever seen, so that was my first port of call.
It asks for toasted coconut and browned butter which I have never done before, but it was SO EASY and SO DELICIOUS.
I would say these blondies are like the perfect choc chip cookie, with the texture and consistency of a brownie.

It’s a public holiday in Western Australia
I woke up stupid early anyhow so decided to go get maccas drive through breakfast which meant I didn’t even have to get dressed.
The Oscars are on and I’ve got absolutely nothing planned.
I love that I am laying on my couch with last nights makeup on and junk food in front of me while casting judgements on fabulous gowns.
What a wonderful world I live in.
All the handouts from the cruelty free markets today in Fremantle.
Boyfriend has been anti additive/chemical for a while and we’re in the process of re evaluating what we’re buying and eating.
I’m not saying I’m going to completely change the way I eat but I am trying to be more educated and aware of food processes and what that means for the environment, other living beings and myself.
In WA the state election is being held again in April because the votes were handled wrong, so we’re going to try and be informed on the political front as well.
We are responsible adults living a very privileged life and we have the tools and resources to be ethical, and hopefully model a lifestyle that we will be proud to teach our future children.
Not to get all evangelical about it but the last few weeks have been a bit of a wakeup for me in regards to the bigger picture and I think it can only mean good things.
My beloved and I on our breakfast date before heading to the cruelty free markets!
MY BODY IS A HYPOCRITE
this morning i got a blood test and the pathologist scolded me because my blood was slow and she had to coax it out into the vial
I saw a grown man in a suit pick his nose and eat it.
find joy in the little things, people.
My favorite thing in the world is to make her laugh,because she has a crazy honk of a laugh,i think nelson from the simpsons. And stop me before i say she makes me a better man,but… she makes me more of a man,and certainly less of a boy, I love every minute i spend with your daughter,sir, i really do.
all my high school feels.
I used to call up boyfriendman every Tuesday night at 8:30pm and make him sit on the phone and watch it with me.
I went to the gym this morning.
It was a right real struggle to get out of bed, but I had packed my bag from the night before, and had my lunch on the top shelf of the fridge so I had no excuse not to go.
But I was tired. And I rolled away from my alarm and sooked for a bit. But then I got mad at myself because I can’t keep skipping out on exercise and getting upset that I’m not as fit as I’d like to be.
Plus, boyfriend and I are going out for churros tonight. I need to offset that dulce de leche, fo reals.
