30 Questions to Ask Before 2016

1. What did you do this year that you’re proud of? Completing my first marathon 2. Who did you meet this year that inspired you? I didn't actually meet anyone irl who inspired me, but I read about James Lawrence who completed 50 triathlon events in 50 days in 50 states in America and I was floored.... Continue Reading →

Purge

I have a lot of things to say about the new Star Wars movie, but instead of being a douche and putting spoilers on the main blog, I've hidden it away here so at least you can choose if you want to go read it.(It's a fairly amusing review, but if your reaction to Star Wars is... Continue Reading →

Man/woman/other

  I had a thing pop up on my Facebook feed yesterday that was a bit of a rant about transgender women. Essentially it said something along the lines of 'even if she doesn't look like a woman and her genitalia is male, a trans woman is still a woman'. I understand very well what the... Continue Reading →

Pain revisited

I have a lovely friend, tavia, who I met through this blog. We exchange emails about life and relationships and she has always been very supportive about my choices and my writing. Recently, she did me the honour of downloading my books and I received a squee-inducing email from her this morning saying how much... Continue Reading →

Xmas nom noms

M and I had a quiet Christmas. We finally finished playing Portal 2 (can I get a hallelujah?) and then sat down to a scrummy Christmas lunch Australian style (a.k.a cold everything and usually involves beetroot.) There was pork with crunchy crackling: Which joined some chicken and salad (that's german potato salad and coleslaw in... Continue Reading →

If you are the one

I should probably confess a secret little obsession that M and I share.. We can't get enough of a Chinese dating show. Strange as it might sound, six nights a week, M and I sit down to dinner over an hour-long episode of If you are the one and laugh and cringe and look at each... Continue Reading →

Words

Mansplaining, manspreading, manterrupting - there are plenty of words flying around to describe asshole behaviour, but I don't think the behaviour itself is restricted to menfolk. There are plenty of asshole things that women tend to do 'exclusively' too; bitching, squealing, nagging - the only difference being that there isn't a prefix denoting women on the words....

War wounds

This would normally be the post I would make after I attended a play party and I have some fantastic bruises to show off to the world, except there was no party and there was no play. And I'm kind of okay with that and kind of not. The last time we played was the Halloween party... Continue Reading →

Ranting woman walking

Do you know what happens if you run a marathon in August then don't run a step for three months and then try and run one hundred metres? You fucking die. That's what happens. Finding that out made me as depressed as the last time I ordered a slice of NY cheesecake and got a piece of some... Continue Reading →

The Deed

So I did that thing...that thing I talked about for a very long time, but took my sweet-ass time to actually do...that one. Yes, I put my books on the kindle store. Since March of this year, I've been editing, rewriting, swapping, adding and generally farting around with my story and then I finally came to a point where... Continue Reading →
