Gearing up for my final week at work... hopefully it will be a calm wind down and not a stressful race to the finish...

Sunday, 13 August 2017

Submitted the second essay with 12 mins to spare. Probably would've done a better job had I not gone out for an epic lunch at Hellenic Republic with my pals, but hey ho. It's done. Might be a good idea to get cracking on the final two assignments now though, so they're not a last-minute rush come September.

Saturday, 12 August 2017

I'm a GREAT Aunt! Well, I've always been a pretty good one, but now I'm a great one!

Welcome to the world Archer Thomas. You've broken the boy drought in our crazy combined family and I can't wait to see you grow.

Friday, 11 August 2017

Once again, Procrastination Penny reared her ugly head and I grossly underestimated how long it would take to finish my essay. Submitted it 50 seconds late.

Thursday, 10 August 2017

Today marks the day that you've been gone for over half my lifetime. It won't ever not suck not having you around, Dada.

Wednesday, 9 August 2017

Today's mail delivery... (squeeeeee!)

Tuesday, 8 August 2017

Well, I've done it. I've officially resigned from my (main) job of the last four years! New adventures await!

Monday, 7 August 2017

Well I've done a little bit of study today, but not nearly enough.

Typical. Unless the deadline is looming over my head I am Procrastination Queen.

Sunday, 6 August 2017

Study plans foiled by feeling nauseous all day. Couldn't even muster the energy to watch either of the films I need to watch. Calling it a wash and going to bed.

Saturday, 5 August 2017

Utterly exhausted after today's trip to Ballarat. No energy to do anything but sit on the sofa with a glass of wine watching 'He's Just Not That Into You' for about the 10th time, because I can't be arsed getting up to find the remote.

Friday, 4 August 2017

My new rug is here and it's lovely and now I REALLY need to get my ass in gear and finish painting the final two bookcases so the study reno is complete.

Thursday, 3 August 2017

The Yazz principle is starting to bear fruit.
My acupuncturist went a little nuts with the lineament so I reek like a locker room.
I'm so exhausted by the day's events that I'm heading to bed at 9:30pm. Unheard of.

Wednesday, 2 August 2017

Smashing through the studying tonight (for a change). The fact I have two assignments due at the end of next week is amazing motivation...

Tuesday, 1 August 2017

All good intentions of studying tonight.

You know what they say about good intentions...

Monday, 31 July 2017

Slowly catching up on the study... too slowly for my liking, but at least it's progress.

Sunday, 30 July 2017

Groceries, done.
Laundry, done.
Bits and bobs, done.





Ummmmm.... yeah. Getting on to that now. Ish.

Saturday, 29 July 2017

The laundry pile (post-guests) is about up to the ceiling... cue trip to the laundromat with their monster-sized tumble dryers.

Friday, 28 July 2017

Friday night footy FTW.


Thursday, 27 July 2017

Bye bye Belgians. I will miss you to the moon and back.

Also, getting into work after a week off and discovering you need to pack up and move offices like, yesterday, is not really ideal. Also, sitting me directly opposite the person who took my job who now feels she can pester me every five minutes? Well that's just plain rude and fucking inconsiderate, tbh.

Wednesday, 26 July 2017

Last day with the Belgians, showing them around the city and doing some last minute shopping (them, not me!). It's been exhausting (not to mention expensive!), but sooooo much fun.

Tuesday, 25 July 2017

Soooo much driving, but worth it to see the little man's face when he saw all the penguins at Phillip Island, toddling up the beach.

Monday, 24 July 2017

Kangaroos, koalas, emus, tasmanian devils, crocs, dingoes and more reptiles (snakes) than I will ever be comfortable with seeing in the one spot: DONE. We even got to feed the kangaroos and slink past the emus hoping they wouldn't peck us.

Sunday, 23 July 2017

Haven't been to Sovereign Hill and the Gold Museum since I was a teenager so had forgotten how much there was to see... especially when you're with an 8 year old who's beyond excited to try panning for gold (thank god he found a speck or we'd have been in serious trouble).

Saturday, 22 July 2017

Off to Ballarat with the Belgians. Thank god there's a pool table at LB's retirement village to keep the 8 year old from going bonkers.

Friday, 21 July 2017

Apparently it is possible to spend 6 hours at Scienceworks, if you're with an 8 year old who's insanely excited about EVERY hands-on exhibit in the place. 😂

Thursday, 20 July 2017

Doing all the touristy things I've never done before... today was a tour of the MCG and sports museum, followed by the Wallace and Gromit exhibition at ACMI. Well, I've done the ACMI thing plenty... but the MCG stuff was new.

Wednesday, 19 July 2017

When there's an 8 year old in the house, you tend to go to bed a little earlier... like before midnight.

Tuesday, 18 July 2017

Tax day today and hopefully the magician worked his magic enough that I'm not going to be totally destitute.

Monday, 17 July 2017

Another day, another interview. Trying not to get my hopes up with this one, but it would be a good one to get!

Sunday, 16 July 2017

That spur of the moment haircut because it's so freaking long that you can't stand it a second more. Took a risk on a new hairdresser and it paid off... mind you, is it even possible to fuck up a long bob? I think not.

Saturday, 15 July 2017

So I watched La La Land for uni and I have about 4 pages of notes.

Somewhere about the middle are three statements which I think sum up my feelings about the whole movie:






Fairly safe to say I won't be choosing this movie for any of my assignments.

Friday, 14 July 2017

Another long day in Ballarat cutting into my study time. So much work to do this weekend!

Thursday, 13 July 2017

Damn but it's cold... or maybe it just feels that way because it's the first time I've had a whole winter in Melbourne for four years. #freezingmybitsoff

Wednesday, 12 July 2017

I'd forgotten what it was like to have someone in your corner talking you up (in a work context). It makes such a nice change from the last few months.  Fingers crossed there's a good outcome this time.

Tuesday, 11 July 2017

Stacked it going down the escalators at Flinders Street Station and I wasn't even tipsy. Hello bruised knee and twisted ankle and wrist. #ClumsyAF 

Monday, 10 July 2017

FINALLY finished American Gods. Now to catch up on all the other studying I need to do before my guests arrive next week and studying is abandoned for a week.

Sunday, 9 July 2017

Angela Merkel is all of us post-G20.

Also, is that Malcolm Tucker/The Doctor standing next to her?!?!

Saturday, 8 July 2017

Didn't get out of bed until midday. Still not out of my pajamas. STILL haven't finished American Gods. Going to push on through until it's done I think... I NEED to finish it before tomorrow.

Also, who the fuck does Ivanka Trump think she is 'sitting in' for her dad at the G20? I'm all for women being at the table, lord knows I am, but an unqualified, unelected, shoe 'designer'??? GTFO, bitch. You are in no way worthy to even converse with Angela Merkel, let alone 'represent' America.

Friday, 7 July 2017

When two awesome new books arrive in the mail but you still have 400 (of 650) pages to read of American Gods for uni this week...

Thursday, 6 July 2017

Another late night at work = Uber Eats.

No wonder I've gained so much damn weight...

Wednesday, 5 July 2017

Worked until 9pm. Haven't done that in a while...

Tuesday, 4 July 2017

If only I could afford to see my acupuncturist weekly, I'm sure I'd be far less stressed. I actually feel human again after tonight's appointment.

Monday, 3 July 2017

So tired of losing my temper on a daily basis... when is this shit going to be OVER? 

Sunday, 2 July 2017

Another day, another 4 hour round trip drive to Ballarat.

Saturday, 1 July 2017

House clean - ✓
Laundry done - ✓
Studying commenced - ✓

Ticking all the boxes today.

Friday, 30 June 2017

Totally distracted from study by The Commitments being on TV. It's more than 25 years since that came out... wowzers I feel old.

Thursday, 29 June 2017

Still sick. Didn't get either of the jobs I interviewed for - not because I did bad interviews, but because I'm overqualified and to quote one of the panel members from one of the jobs, I'd likely be "climbing the walls with boredom within five minutes".

Oh and to add to the mix, I'm battling with my mother's doctors who want to send her home from hospital with a major infection with nothing more than a once-a-day visit from a nurse to change the IV pack. She's spent the better part of the last year in hospital - sending her home without proper support is tantamount to a death sentence... fucking doctors.

Definitely NOT winning at life right now.

Wednesday, 28 June 2017

Slept right through my alarm and didn't wake up until 8:30am having a massive coughing-until-I-threw-up fit... a sure sign that I wasn't well enough for work today. Which is shitty, because I could sure do with the $$ right now.

Tuesday, 27 June 2017

Made it through half a day at work before throwing up everywhere. Sigh. Eating granola, yoghurt and blueberries when you have a stinking cold probably wasn't the greatest idea I've ever had.

Monday, 26 June 2017

Today is the 20th anniversary of the release of the first Harry Potter book.

Here's a visual representation of me trying to read them, whilst avoiding spoilers each time a new one was released:

Thanks, JK Rowling for creating some of my favourite female characters of all time!

Sunday, 25 June 2017

My house is a disaster area... six bookcases in various stages of painting/drying about the place, no food in the house, and I woke up with a scratchy, fiery throat, swollen glands and a runny nose. Ugh. I have no time for getting sick.

Saturday, 24 June 2017

Dropping a bundle on paint supplies was unintentional, but necessary, if I want to get this damn study finished by the time the Belgians arrive.

Friday, 23 June 2017

Have only JUST arrived home after spending the day in Ballarat sorting out stuff for LB.

Thursday, 22 June 2017

Look it's certainly not high art and Kate McKinnon's Australian accent is pretty ordinary, but Rough Night was exactly the laugh I needed this week.

Wednesday, 21 June 2017

Second one done and done well. Nothing to do now but wait.

Tuesday, 20 June 2017

Well the birthday wasn't going to badly (despite having to work) until LB informs me she's developed an infection in her new hip and has to go back to hospital tomorrow...

And then I went and saw a show at work that was so bad I had to leave at interval. Honestly. Woeful. These students are graduating this year and THAT'S the quality of their work? Jeez.

Monday, 19 June 2017

One down, one to go.

Then there's nuthin' to do but wait.

Sunday, 18 June 2017

Prepping for a big week ahead got me like...

Saturday, 17 June 2017

Study bookcase #1 is DONE.
Also, three birthday cards arrived yesterday and I lasted until about midday today until I caved to the urge to open them. Cash AND gift vouchers for bookstores. Two of my favourite things!

Friday, 16 June 2017

The epic journey to/from Ballarat is made much more tolerable when LB's 88 year old cousin accompanies me. He's adorable.

Thursday, 15 June 2017

Drinks with a new(ish) friend for some job advice, and dinner with an old friend for a general catch up. Nice way to end my working week.

Wednesday, 14 June 2017

Really didn't get everything done that I'd intended to get done at work today, but do I care? Things are starting to happen which may change things for the better...

Tuesday, 13 June 2017

Bedroom bookcase finished. Now for the ugly AF drawers...

Monday, 12 June 2017

Technically it's a public holiday, but I don't actually work Mondays any more, so it's just another day of not getting paid... sigh. Time to finish off that bookcase.

Sunday, 11 June 2017

Lazy day watching bad TV, waxing a bookcase and planning for the next painting project.


Not yet. But stay tuned.

Saturday, 10 June 2017

The thesis is edited and sent (not mine, someone in PNG). This means that I officially have two days of NO RESPONSIBILITY TO OTHER PEOPLE AND CAN DO WHATEVER TF I WANT.


Friday, 9 June 2017

Totally forgot the plan for today and now have to jam in a few hours of editing.

On a positive note, the handle on Great-Aunt Lil's antique tea trolley has been fixed and I've done a test-paint of one of the bookshelves in the study...

Wednesday, 7 June 2017

The benefits of an hour of yoga are offset by the consumption of an 8bit burger and tater-tots.


Tuesday, 6 June 2017

Melbourne laneway art is the best...

Monday, 5 June 2017

When you go to see Wonder Woman at 11am on a Monday and there's only a handful of people in the cinema but one of them happens to be your doppelgänger...

Like, LITERALLY. Rachel Griffiths sitting right in front of me. We even chatted in the queue for tickets.

Sunday, 4 June 2017

A looooooong day in Ballarat followed by a loooooong night of editing.

Have booked myself a ticket to see Wonder Woman at 11am tomorrow just to ensure I drag my tired ass out of bed.

Saturday, 3 June 2017

Hmmmm. Editing this thesis is going to take far longer than I had anticipated...

Thursday, 1 June 2017

Reading The Handmaid's Tale has not made me feel any better about the world we're living in right now.

Wednesday, 31 May 2017

If there's a word for beyond shattered, then I'm it right now.

At what point does my life get less fucking exhausting?

Tuesday, 30 May 2017

Ohhhhh, I get it. I totally get it.

She's one of THEM.



Monday, 29 May 2017

Sometimes, all it takes is a lengthy email from a concerned friend, with a helpful suggestion. is my new jam and will hopefully help get me out of this funk I seem to be in. Thanks Kris! xx

Sunday, 28 May 2017

As expected, actually, this made me a little teary... not least because there was no Alan and Emma.

Saturday, 27 May 2017

Re-reading The Handmaid's Tale in preparation for one of next trimester's subjects. Legit terrifying given the times we're now living in. Best I don't start re-reading Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Friday, 26 May 2017

There's all kinds of trucks and machinery and diggers making noise outside my place right now (night track works), but I'm so wiped I could sleep through an avalanche. 

Thursday, 25 May 2017

On reflection, the moment you said "I'll just bring her* over to you for the day so you can do handover because I have meetings"** is the moment I should have told you to go fuck yourself.

* The woman who got the new job that is taking over ALL of my current workload, leaving me effectively unemployed.
** You have meetings? You have no fucking idea what the job is more like.

Wednesday, 24 May 2017

Would really love to just take a week and do nothing.

Unfortunately given the change in work situation that's no longer an option, dammit.

Tuesday, 23 May 2017

2017 you really are going all out to be more of a shitstorm than 2016, aren't you? My heart goes out to those in Manchester.

Monday, 22 May 2017

Well, it's taken all day and we're right up to the wire here, but my assignment is DONE and my trimester is officially OVER.

Sunday, 21 May 2017

Took some time out this morning to wander around Melbourne General Cemetery as part of Vanitas... pretty incredible experience. I have some really talented mates.

Saturday, 20 May 2017

Been dicking around all day and haven't done a scrap of essay writing. Best I get down to it or I'll get into strife come Monday when it's due.

Friday, 19 May 2017

So utterly exhausted that I'm going to bed at 10pm even though I have an essay to write.

Thursday, 18 May 2017

Technically, I have an essay due tomorrow.

Thank god for sympathetic lecturers willing to grant extensions.

Wednesday, 17 May 2017

When your bestie's livin the dream and you're super happy for her, but you're also living the nightmare...

Tuesday, 16 May 2017

Eating enchiladas and watching Tyler Henry Hollywood Medium is no way to write an essay on children's literature. #LifeFail 

Monday, 15 May 2017

Look I started the essay at least. And I've done all the reading. And I technically have until midnight Friday, so just lay off alright?!

(and maybe I'll take a sickie on Friday to smash it out)

Sunday, 14 May 2017

I honestly don't know how people commute from Ballarat to Melbourne on a daily basis. It's fucking exhausting. Or maybe that's just because of what I have to deal with when I'm up there...

Saturday, 13 May 2017

Spending the day brunching, shopping, Book of Mormon-ing and eating with one of the Radelaide besties was exactly what my poor, tortured brain and heart needed.

Friday, 12 May 2017

This week has been a shitshow and a half. 5pm can't come soon enough.

Thursday, 11 May 2017

My acupuncturist is a miracle worker. I no longer feel the desire to tell the world to go fuck itself and jump off a cliff.

Wednesday, 10 May 2017

One thing. I'd just appreciate ONE FUCKING THING going right in my life for a change please.

Is that really too much to ask?

Tuesday, 9 May 2017

Oh I'm sorry, you're giving the job I've been doing for months to someone who doesn't even have experience in our industry? Well...

Monday, 8 May 2017

Waiting for news on my job interview got me like...

Sunday, 7 May 2017

How is it already 8:30pm on Sunday? HOW?

Saturday, 6 May 2017

After a long day's driving to/from Ballarat, study went out the window in favour of finishing my recently started binge-watch of The Crown.

Friday, 5 May 2017

Spending an hour or so cuddling a sleeping 4 week old baby was exactly what I needed today.

Thursday, 4 May 2017

Job interview done and I think (hope!) done well. 

It's all out of my hands now in any case - no point stressing. 

Wednesday, 3 May 2017

An hour of listening to these two (hilarious) blokes was just what my stressed self needed. I'd totally forgotten that Armando Iannucci was also the creator of Alan Partridge... fucking genius.

Tuesday, 2 May 2017

Today I got to hang out with 6 border collies for a while as part of Mental Health & Wellbeing Day. Dogs really are the best therapy ever.

Monday, 1 May 2017

WHHHHHHYYYYYY do I always get my second wind at midnight, after a shitty night's sleep the night before, when I've got a full-on day ahead?

Sunday, 30 April 2017

How is it already 11:30pm???

This is going to be an epic week... I had planned to get an early night. Doesn't look as though that's going to happen...

Saturday, 29 April 2017

It's a pretty sad state of affairs when your sofa is actually more comfortable to sleep on than your bed when your back is in spasms.

Friday, 28 April 2017

Some days you just need to say:

and cut out a little bit early to take advantage of a $6 happy hour and an evening of drag cabaret.

Thursday, 27 April 2017

Going to Barre was exactly what my achy body needed.

Two margaritas and a crapload of Mexican food was probably not.


Wednesday, 26 April 2017

These short weeks are playing havoc with my ability to do my job.

Tuesday, 25 April 2017

When it's 9pm and you've somehow not managed to get a lick of work done all day...

Monday, 24 April 2017

When you're only supposed to go in for a half day because you had to attend a meeting, but end up not leaving until 4pm...

Sunday, 23 April 2017

OK, so NOW I've started watching The Crown and I may be a little obsessed.

Also, I got an HD for my children's literature assignment. Not bad, considering I was writing the essay in between juggling full-time work, applying for my job and dealing with my mother in hospital.

Saturday, 22 April 2017


Commence immediate download of everything I've missed over the last 10 days.

Friday, 21 April 2017

1. This movie is every bit as tense and spooky and awesome as I'd been led to believe.

2. Apparently I am the best person to see horror films with because I spook easy (and vocally).

3. I turned up at the cinema to discover my friend had not only knitted me a pink pussy hat, but had also bought me this:

Today was a great day.

Thursday, 20 April 2017

Wednesday, 19 April 2017

Somehow, I need to jam 5 days worth of work into 3. The downside of public holidays.

Tuesday, 18 April 2017

Still no home internet. Chewing through the mobile data like it's Easter eggs. On the other hand, I went chalk paint shopping and started on the bedroom makeover... graphite for the win!

Monday, 17 April 2017

My house is (finally) clean.

My laundry is (finally) washed and dried.

My internet is still on the fritz, so my grand plans to binge-watch The Crown are thwarted.

Sunday, 16 April 2017

Stories for the Starlit Sky is one of the most beautiful acts of storytelling I have seen in a very long time. Barely even noticed the length (3hrs 40mins incl 2 intervals). Simply delightful.

Saturday, 15 April 2017

Frustration levels at an all-time high once again, courtesy of the crazymakers.

Friday, 14 April 2017

It is a fact universally acknowledged (in my world at least) that for the foreseeable future, my holidays (Christmas, Easter, etc) are going to be a shitshow of family crap.

Thursday, 13 April 2017

My internet has been dodgy for weeks, but when does the modem decide to go totally kaput? Yes! The night before the Easter long weekend. I have data on my phone, but not that much and certainly not enough to binge watch Netflix this weekend. 

Wednesday, 12 April 2017

Another long day of headshots. At least the Production students are: (a) prompt; and (b) low maintenance.

Tuesday, 11 April 2017

Thank god for my acupuncturist. I've barely been able to move after the torturous Thai massage I was subjected to on Saturday... an hour of needles and cupping has me being able to actually move my neck again.

Monday, 10 April 2017

New office needs plants. Lots of plants. And a cocktail cart, according to my office-mate. Because, WTF wouldn't you? 

Sunday, 9 April 2017

Met my colleague's 3-day-old daughter, Joss (short for Jocelyn), this afternoon. SO. ADORABLE.


Saturday, 8 April 2017

Had to go up to Ballarat to spring LB out of hospital... was so tensed up after 4 hours of driving that I decided to get a Thai massage on my way home. Now I can barely move my neck I'm in so much pain.

Friday, 7 April 2017

I'll just pop in for ONE drink, I said.


Still, it was awesome hanging out with the gang from Wilin tonight. Deadly bunch of people.

Thursday, 6 April 2017

It's Wilin Week at work so we've been having all sorts of cool activities... Tuesday was boomerang burning and today was weaving... I'm not sure whether this wanted to be a coaster or a basket, but it's all my own handiwork and was created in under 90 mins.

Wednesday, 5 April 2017

We've got to move offices AGAIN.

Ugh. Just give me a laptop already and let me plonk myself anywhere... preferably out in the sunshine when it's a nice day.

Tuesday, 4 April 2017

Trainspotting Live was one of the best theatrical experiences I've had in years. Insane and crazy and took me back to my London days when life was one long party.

Monday, 3 April 2017

In between all the annoying bits and pieces I had to do today, I FINALLY got around to finishing The Good People by my fellow Radelaidian, Hannah Kent. Such a good read.

Sunday, 2 April 2017

The tedious drive to/from Ballarat made bearable by these lads and their new album...

Wonderland for the win.

Saturday, 1 April 2017

Hanging out watching dodgy reno shows at my ma's apartment in Ballarat while she's in hospital is not exactly a ripping way to spend a Saturday evening...

Friday, 31 March 2017

Completely overslept... I blame the NyQuil my lovely colleague had her sister bring me from the US. Powerless to resist it when there's a chance of me getting a decent night's sleep for once.

Thursday, 30 March 2017

So much fun at Bumpa's new venture, Vau d'Vile, tonight. Will definitely be back to check out all the other shows!

Wednesday, 29 March 2017

Seriously universe... did my family smash a bunch of mirrors while I wasn't looking?? LB and Brutha both having the worst luck right now.

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

Always awesome to be able to have enough of a break from study to be able to read for fun again. Hannah Kent, I am excited to finally get cracking on The Good People.

Monday, 27 March 2017

Essay finished and uploaded with 4 hours to spare. Time for a glass of vino and an early night methinks...

Sunday, 26 March 2017

If you're going to be forced to spend your Sunday finishing an essay, you may as well do it in comfort...

Saturday, 25 March 2017

Well at least I've done a bunch of reading.

No actual progress on the essay, but hey. I'm the queen of procrastination and last-minute essay writing, right?

Friday, 24 March 2017

Lots of housework, very little study happening today.

Must have an essay due.

Thursday, 23 March 2017

Finally popped my MCG cherry with the first game of the AFL season. Not a bad way to spend a mild autumn Thursday night.

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

2017 is shaping up to be just as much of a freaking shit-show as 2016.

I mean, come ON. Why hasn't Trump been impeached yet?

Tuesday, 21 March 2017

Me at work.

All day, every day right now.

Monday, 20 March 2017

Made it through the final day of headshots... even got the proof sheets done.

Now I just need to tackle the mountain of work that awaits me in the office...

Sunday, 19 March 2017

Zero study done this weekend.

Full on week of work coming up, plus at least one trip to Ballarat to get LB from hospital, plus an essay due this time next week, plus potentially an interview for my job.

Can I just crawl into a hole for the next year please?
Wow. Those Music Theatre kids BROUGHT. IT.

They are going to have the most awesome headshots of any graduating students this year.

Friday, 17 March 2017

Headshot photo shoot day for the Theatre third years...

Started at 8am.

Finished at 8:15pm.

Have to be back at 8.30am tomorrow for the Music Theatre third years.

Thursday, 16 March 2017

Job application done and submitted by lunchtime.

Let's see how it goes...

Wednesday, 15 March 2017

When you realise the job application is not due Friday, it's due TOMORROW.

Tuesday, 14 March 2017

Was going to post something about how awesome cupping is (because it is and I have it all the time and I had it today and I LOVE it), but then I googled for pics.



Monday, 13 March 2017

Working-from-home-Mondays got me like

Sunday, 12 March 2017

My life right now...

Trying to get shit done, but keep getting interrupted.

Saturday, 11 March 2017

God bless Adam at the Apple Store in Chadstone. Tries everything he can think of to fix the rogue 'f' key on my Macbook, then surmises that it's beyond help and needs a new 'top case' (whatever that hell that is), which will cost $350 and leave me without a laptop for at least a week. My horror was clearly evident because about half a second later he's grabbing a wireless keyboard and waving its $165 price tag in front of my face. Given my Macbook is 2014 and I will likely be upgrading in the next year or so, I jumped at the suggestion.

Friday, 10 March 2017

Took me a while to get around to seeing Kinky Boots, but I finally did tonight! Lots of fun. I mean, it's no Hamilton, but it's exuberant and joyous and whacky and a lovely way to spend a few hours. It was also a pleasant change from last night's theatrical yawn-fest.

Thursday, 9 March 2017

First Barre class in a few weeks followed by opening night of Faith Healer at MTC. Both left me feeling less than stellar.

Wednesday, 8 March 2017
