Deja vu? Or tell-tale signs ...

Today I:

1. Hid a take-away coffee from Campos in my handbag so I could get on the bus;
2. Bought two kinds of chocolate from Haighs - peppermint chocolate frogs and coffee crackle;
3. Started scrabbling frantically at the stickytape on the latter;
4. Realised that I was mentally chanting "chocolate now! must *get* at *chocolate";
4b. Slowly put the chocolate back into its paper bag;
5. Resolved to cut down on my caffiene related products again.

I'm sorry, who?

In this article:

the smh has decided to add a montage of faces, representing "some of the biggest names in australian music". The faces are of:
(1)missy higgins
(2)john butler
(3)kate ceberano
(4)shannon noll
(5)kasey chambers.

Sorry? Biggest names in music? I had to go look up who number (4) was , since I couldn't remember who he is from the picture. Since _when_ does coming runner up in a dreadful tv show based on how you look (rather than how you can actually sing) count you among "the biggest names in australian music"? When in fact, hmm, the show _itself_ is a ripoff of a tv show originally shown in the USA, and then your debut single is actually a cover of someone elses' work. Are you paying royalties, m'lad?

Skiing - woot!

I went skiing for a week, for the first time ever. It was so much fun, indescribable. I was pretty stoked to find out that I had been at the snow for the first time ever at the same time as adventure girl, but also at Perisher as well. Woot! So I went again, and got snowed upon on the first day, and had the most fantastic time screaming "Go faster!" at everybody. Technique be dammed. Speed is the key. Pics to come.
