So hot

So hot I dripped and melted away. It got 42 degrees and everyone's brain frazzled - but more hot days to come from now on...

Yesterday I watched A Millionaire's First Love and I cried so much. You can get it at Silent Regrets. I have also finished downloading Devil Beside You and I like it so far. But I'm all for comedy romances with love triangles. That's why Marmalade Boy is so good as well - Ken Zhu is a bit of a spunk though - I liked him the most out of the F4 group from Meteor Garden. He can cook me up something to eat anytime - was a cook once and has written his own cook book - so he is like Tawain's answer to the Naked Chef. Yep so hot.

Love this link:

I went straight to counting to 12 - because that is how I count to twelve. Top of the list was the egyptian statue singing rubby ducky and here fishy fishy fishy.

I would buy a DVD of all the old skits.

Also cut out Erin's wedding outfit today and sewed a Pullip outfit: see my flickr account.

Graduation Dinner

Okay - here are some photos of the Senior Dinner that I organised on the 16th (Thursday night). It went really well except for the food fight - I could have killed them and their parents :(

Shrinking the photos by percentages make them blurry - so just click on them to see a bigger one on my flickr account.

Their graduation cake that Barb made:

Cutting the cake - although blurry I really like this photo - it has emotion.

The presents that I made the students. Autograph books with the first letter of their name on the front. Everyone liked them and they were so much better then a autograph bear -TACKY!!!

The room was decourated in pink, black and silver. Parent were a little shocked at the colour combination even more so when I told them that the students had chosen it, and that a boy had suggested it. People in Winton are so behind the times.

And talking about being behind the times - it's like they have never heard of nail polish this is not pink. Therefore my nails do get a bit of attention:

I'll start and finish with international TV shows

We have been watching Battlestar Galactica lately - it's not to bad - but I don't mind sci-fi. Australia is going to get the sci-fi channel next year which will be great.

Tonight I want to create some Pullip clothing - Going to try a skirt and maybe a jacket.

I didn't get the job. I'm a little disappointed and I don't know what my role at school will be next year. But Bec will be great as HOC so I'm not upset that she got it at all.

SilentRegrets is down again - please come back - I want Asian dramas!!!

Wedding Dress Blues

Okay here we go with some photos of the wedding dress top practise run:


The back is a complete mess and is making me angry... RAR!!!!

BELOW are the posts from my old webpage to catch up:


So excited because today my Pullip dolls came! Gonna take photos on the weekend.


I love my mum. Infact I sometimes find it surprising that we have similar tastes. Mum happens to love things vintage while I like things retro - and yes there is a distinct difference between those two categories - but not much of a difference. We like to collect things from both of those categories though - Mum has started an egg cup collection - so I have just found some egg cups to give her, on ebay of course. We both like kitchen objects.
EDIT - no sorry - I missed out on the auction :(


I am now pretty broke today. With a lot of spendature lately - buying furniture, getting teeth done, buying new clothes - I have finally broke down and bought myself a Pullip doll. I have wanted one for three years now, I would rather a Pullip then a Blythe which I find a little scary. The positive of a Pullip is that they supposibly fit Jenny clothing - which is good because I have a Jenny - but I also have Licca with fit Blythe so that reasoning is a little usless.

Anyway - I found an ebay store that sells them nude - I always seem to buy my dolls nude - much cheaper and more creative that way. The two dolls that I was watching however were bought - so last night I went looking and found a Rida (I think a very regal looking doll much like the first Pullip I wanted - Nero). But because it was so cheap I kept looking about and found a BOY! A boy Pullip has been a secret fasination of mine...

So anyway I figure I saved myself $30 US for both Rida and Timulus - $60 in total. It's a pitty though that I couldn't get MJ namu because he is really Rida's boyfriend. Oh well - they are having and affair.

Timulus Taeyang

This is the one Pullip I would buy dressed:

Yesterday we went to Longreach to get Chihiro's belly shaved. She is already hot and it's not Summer yet! The vet drugged her too much and so on the way home I actually thought she had died.

She was vomiting and still not well when I went to bed at 10:30, but she is okay today.

cool kitchen

Awesome nails

Dad has been getting in a building stuff and moving furniture. We bought two bookcases and a tv thing so we have gotten all of that set up now. But Dad has his sights set on my sewing room. It is still an unorganised mess - so tomorrow we are going to Longreach and buying a pantry and other furniture to help me store everying away.

Can I say that I want a strangeco toy?
Can I sat that I still want a ddung doll?
Can I say that I still want a mimo doll?
Can I say that I still want a pulip doll?

No I don't know what some of the links are below because I have been collecting again.

So I just got back from Townsville. I had a week up there with C and D, and then my parents from wednesday. Mum and Dad will be staying with us in Winton, so they can check out the new house.

I got a lot of wedding stuff done. I went to a wedding dress shop and was put off by their bitchiness - but I only wanted to try on a veil and they looked pretty ugly anyway. No veil for the wedding.

But I got in a fair bit of shopping, ate out a lot and went to the dentist twice. So now I am quite broke :P


You know what? I have been under a lot of stress the last few days. Most of this was my own fault mind you. Who would have thought that applying for HOC would be so much work? Or that I would have to do the ICT survey at the same time?

Tomorrow I will be teacher in charge for the first time in years - hmm not a pretty thing at all.

I have still yet to order bread buns from the bakery - or put a notice in the newsletter about selling hot dogs for a catering assignment.


The things that I have been fascintated with lately are:

Asain dramas - I get them from daddicts or silent regrets. I was really bummed a few weeks ago because silent regrets closed down for a while - but it was just to update their look.

Nail art - after watching asian dramas and video clips of Koda Kumi I really wanted to look into this nail art thing. I think I had already mentioned on the old site that I was buying nail polish for a 'manicure store' at the fete - but this is one step up. I'll get a picture of my current nails but in the mean time just picture natuaral with tiny white butterflies and little white dots - oh so cute!

Avoiding wedding plans - I was meant to start Lisa's outfit last week end - but had work to do.

Total Geek?

Pretty happy with this score I got on a geek test as the test gave 8 results and I was in the bottom 3.

i am a total geek

I am unhappy today because of forgetful bosses, people who think they are the only ones who do housework, I find out if I get the raise next week, I am under appreciated, my sewing machine hates me right now.

I hate wedding dresses

I like to sew, I like to sew my own clothes, I like to sew doll's clothes, I like to sew other people's clothes. But why oh why did I decide to make my own wedding dress?

I have stuffed up two goes so far, even though I have adapted the pattern and redrawn it to remove bagginess above my boobs, and around my waist and neckline. This were looking pretty cruisy until I cut up fabric. At this point the front of the dress looks great, the back now needs work.

However much this is like hell though, I much prefer this then the wedding dress shops in Townsville. I have been to the two on Chaterstowers Rd and have found one: "Rude Bitches" and the other "Unwilling to help".

Not only that - do they not think fat people get married? Are fat people destined to live short (due to heart attacks) lonely (Expect for a cat) lives? One store had only 2 size 20 dresses - one of which was way too big and the other was way too small (almost a size 16!). The sales women couldn't seem bothered about the fact that the dresses looked terrible on me, or even suggest a size 18.

It is really annoying that my body is so funny shaped with a size 20 odd bust and the 16 waist - nothing is ever going to fit...

Sick of changing providers

So after eleven years of owning a website, moving it from provider to provider, I finally broke down and set up a blog. I don't know how well this is going to work because I really like to change my website around every now and then I hope I will be able to do the same sort of things. Oh well - we'll see.
