camping, despite what others may think, is fun.

Most definitely. Going camping after I finish work today. Big woop. About work, I mean, not camping. Certainly not camping. I like camping. Especially when I get to go camping in a super-expensive van. Which, this year, I do. As I did last year.

Awesome summer dress. That is my monkey in the background. I got that at some zoo in the middle of nowhere. I wore that dress last time I went camping. Which is precisely why I will not be taking it with me. They (aliens of course) will know. Now I must succumb to my mothers wishes that I will help her find a new pair of sunglasses. Aliens will know if hers are from last year as well.
Happy New Year Aliens.

I miss The Trevi Fountain and it's gelati.

I miss it! Want to go back! Now!
I went and saw Twilight again. This time with my mum. Well done, I just turned my mother into another Twilight fan. Hopefully she will live.
Note to self: Need to stop making people obsessed with the same things I am.

Is travel a bug?

Everyone keeps asking me if I have the "travel bug". Unlikely. I don't like getting sick but I do find bugs fascinating.

Time is of the essence here people!

That is precisely what I tell people when they ask why I go so fast on my bike. "Time is of the essence here people!" I like going down steeps hills especially and racing my sister who, being three years younger than me, will never actually beat me. I am faster... and I love it.
The people in Italy ride bikes. A lot. Everywhere you go there is a push bike leaning against a wall. I loved it. There isn't that mush space in Italy though. No silent roads where you can whiz by going as fast as you can. There is however a lot of corners. Not so fun.

Christmas stockings are full today

Well, I can't speak for the rest of the population of the earth all I can say is that mine is. I got Bones Season 2 and a new piano book so I am very happy.
Christmas this year is actually very quiet. Just us and Grandma. Pleasant though. Then again I must say after twelve games of dominoes I don't think I will be playing that for a while. Tea-time now. I don't think I can fit anything more in! No more food!
Once again,

Waiting gets very tiring

I am waiting. And still waiting. Yep, once again waiting. Ok, one more time I am waiting. For what? You may ask or scream or yell. I will give you two hints: they consist of the pictures that are above. Yes! Once again another post about Bones as I have nothing interesting to write about. I want the second season already!
Turns out the holidays are not a very good time to pick little things out from the people around me. I went and saw Twilight. As predicted, I loved it. Not going to start calling myself a Twilighter though. That right there ladies and gentlemen is something very sad indeed. I pity those of you who have opted for this peculiar name.
Christmas is tomorrow. I wish all of you a Merry Christmas, Boun Natale or the equivalent of "Merry Christmas" in whatever language you speak. Now I am going out to see the few Christmas lights my town has opted for. Goodnight.

Summer and a dose of Eloise

It is summer here and today has a rather nice high of 31 degrees Celsius. When I say nice in this post, I actually mean stinkin' horrible. The heat is far to hot for me to go outside and do something so I have been reading my school book. Hello, Bell Jar. Luckily, the annoying weatherman who likes to ask how people are doing even though they obviously are not going to answer has predicted it to be a bit cooler for Christmas. I hope it is. I like it when it is sunny but not I can fry an egg on my back sunny. I think that I shall go and watch Eloise at Christmastime now. She and Julie Andrews always make me smile.

Boo non-ratings season!

I just want them to put new Bones and NCIS back on! I miss them, especially the very juicy surprise that I know is coming at the end of the fourth season of Bones. "Sad face".

Before, when I said that I will go and draw some stuff, well, I did. Then I eyed my water-colour pencils just sitting there looking so lonely and bored so I decided to muck about using them for a bit. But as always, the question: what to draw? I decided on a cover of the graphic novels W.I.T.C.H. First two pictures are my very bad self portraits. The second picture is of Will and lucky last is Hay-Lin. Not very good, but anyway I thought that I would post them. Record. Three postings one day. Not even one day just one afternoon. Wow, I must be really bored.

Emily and Zooey Deschanel

Ooh! Just thought of something to write about. Emily Deschanel stars in a very good TV program named Bones (have you read me mention that before? I think so...) as Dr. Temperance Brennan while her sister, Zooey Deschanel, has had roles in various films and television shows. Their Dad directed The Passion of the Christ and their mother was also an actress. Talk about showbiz running in the family. Anyway, I found this cool picture of the sisters. Now I will go and draw some stuff while waiting for Bones Season 2 to come out on DVD.

Christmas parties and Twilight

So tonight there is going to be a really big Christmas party at my house. Lots of people will be there so right now everyone is just a teensy bit stressed out. I lied. Everyone is just plain stressed out. Not looking forward to boring party.

I really like the Twilight saga. Can't wait to go see the film even though it seems that I do have to wait. Blah. Nothing to write about. I am thinking of conducting a mini photo shoot tomorrow in one of the alleys near my house but I will probably decide against it. Or I will just straighten my hair which always makes me annoyed as it (my hair) is too curly to stay straight. Either way.

Anne of Green Gables and yet another Twilight fan

I just adore this film starring Megan Follows and I also enjoyed the book, Anne of Green Gables written by L.M. Montgomery. I don't why, I just love the idea of living in the end of the 1800's by the sea. Pretty dresses, lemonade, tea parties. Yet another Alice in Wonderland type fantasy with one important exception: Anne lived on the real, solid earth; Alice (at least while she was in Wonderland) did not.

Ok, read Twilight by Stephanie Myer, loved it, read the second one, loved it, read the third one, loved it and now waiting for the silly, small-town bookstore to open in the morning so I can love the fourth one too.

My poor camera

This is the story of a very tired and selfless camera. Once upon a time their was a young lady who went on a very important trip to Italy. Her camera (nicknamed Shark) was allowed to come along, on one condition. It was to take pictures any time the young lady wanted. Shark agreed. As the trip progressed the camera got tireder and tireder till it was so tired it just beeped and turned itself off. The young lady was worried. Shark wouldn't charge like usual.
"Shark? What is wrong dearest friend? Why I do believe that you have been taking so many pictures that you have worn yourself out"
However, the young lady found the time in her very busy schedule to take her dearest camera to the nearest person who told her she was using the wrong plug.
"Oops. Tee Hee. My bad." The young lady giggled.

Thus, the story of how I accidentally somehow took 2244 photos on my trip to Italy without the whole wrong plug thing and have tired my poor camera out.
Feel sorry for Shark now.
Ten seconds later...
Stop feeling sorry for Shark while thinking that this is what cameras were designed to do.
"Lets get out there Shark!"

Awesome pencil boxes are in Greece

You probably won't be able to see it but I will mention what it is anyway. Just because i can. In the very bottom left hand corner of this picture, you will see a box. It is a art supply box and I think that it is really cool. This picture is from the film, The Sisterhood of The Travelling Pants 2 and was taken when Lena (Alexis Bledel, can you say Gilmore Girls?) was in Greece. I think that I will go and find myself an awesome box to put my art supplies in.

Home Sweet Home

'Sigh'. Goodbye Italy, I won't forget you.

>>Really long and boring plane trip<<

Hello Australia! Back home once again... but still really super tired.

Monday, December 8, 2008


So the big day finally came and here I am in the wonderful land of pizza, pasta and all things religious and weird. Like some of these peoples shoes. They obviously havent seen the warnings about high heels on tv. Nah, they can do what they want. They do live in Italy after all.
