You're a falling star, you're the getaway car
You're the line in the sand when I go too far
You're the swimming pool, on an August day
And you're the perfect thing to see

And you play your card, but it's kinda cute
Ah, when you smile at me you know exactly what you do
Baby don't pretend, that you don't know it's true
Cause you can see it when I look at you

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It's you, it's you, you make me sing
You're every line, you're every word, you're everything

You're a carousel, you're a wishing well
And you light me up, when you ring my bell
You're a mystery, you're from outer space
You're every minute of my everyday

And I can't believe, uh that I'm your man
And I get to kiss you baby just because I can
Whatever comes our way, ah we'll see it through
And you know that's what our love can do

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It's you, it's you, you make me sing
You're every line, you're every word, you're everything

So, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
So, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It's you, it's you, you make me sing
You're every line, you're every word, you're everything
You're every song, and I sing along
Cause you're my everything
Yeah, yeah

So, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
So, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

During my usual scouring of fashion sites and blogs and whatnot, I kinda decided that I want boots. I have been undecided on boots for ages, at one stage I really wanted to buy a pair but then I didn't end up getting them. And then I didn't want them anymore. And then I did. And then I thought, I don't want to be old and look back on 'retro' pictures of the noughties and think, woah, boots were all the craze then but then not being able to show my grandkids a picture of their cool granny in boots. Aaanywayy. The main reason why I am yet to own a pair is because I need to look for one with the perfect heel height. As much as I like the look of stiletto boots, I know im my heart of hearts that they are impractical and I wouldn't be able to wear them often. I was about to get flat boots before, but I dunno, they kinda remind me of Puss in Boots or something.

Anyway, back to the whole point of this post. I found the perfect boot! (Er, not that I've been looking very hard in the first place.) Anyway, it goes a little something like this:

Close up of heel:

Seee? It's not too high, but not completely flat either.

Except. These boots are from Urban Outfitters, in the U.S. I want a pair exactly like this! Black, suede, the heel! I also like how its not very buckle-y or embellished, as I'll be able to wear it more often.

Anyhooo. (Sheeze, I take a while to get to the point huh?) Do you think I'll be able to find something like this in K-Mart or something? I'm willing to fork out around $50 for it, or up to $100 if it's really good stuff (in which case not from K-mart).

Damn, I better get them quick before winter goes away.

My life in bullets

It's time for another post, methinks. In bullets. Yeh. Coz I'm such a busy person and all.

- Went Metros on Saturday. It was raining. Saw a SHITLOAD of familiar people (read: CI people, high school people, work people, uni people). I had fun, but it kinda reconfirmed why clubbing is not really my thing. You know, the sweaty sweaty people, the drunken leers, the little kids. The little kids! I swear, I felt so ancient. Maybe also coz my hair was in a bun, as I just came from work. Anyhoo, best bit was going for century egg and pork porridge at Billy Lee's afterwards. Nothing beats a nice warm bowl of soul food. Yeh, good for your soul.

- What else. Hmm, going for a haircut this Wednesday. Think my hair's getting too long already. I always get it nipped in places, for example like when you sit on a chair and lean on your hair then somehow manage to yank it. OWCH. Or when I'm on my laptop in bed, and it somehow ends up being nipped in my armpits?? ANd then you move your head and it hurts like crap coz I'm pulling the hair? Or it gets stuck in your bra strap? Haha. Tell me this happens to everyone with long hair, and not just me? This is the longest my hair has been in yonks, so I guess I'm not really that used to it. I also find that when I'm brushing my hair I only brush from my scalp to around shoulder length, so the ends are still tangled. Habit, I guess. Hee. Man, I'm a noob.

- Ummm what else. Had work Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. Saturday night was fun, as it was the Adultshop Boobalicious Ball. That was fun.

- Oooh ooh! My bro's fishies had babies, and they're the brooding type. As in, the eggs hatch in their mouths. It's really cute, you can see the little black eyeballs showing through the skin. So what we did was, my bro took the fish out of water and I pried the mouth open with a toothpick and all the little fishies just swam out. They were so cute! We had a panic moment went two little babies ended up on the floor and we couldn't pick it up as they were so small (they were about the size of a grain of rice). But we rescued them in the end. In case you're wondering, you're meant to do that toothpick thing so you can save more babies. The internet said so, so it must be right. Keeping fishes is quite cool actually, although I'll never admit it to my brother. It's fascinating how the males turn colour when they're mating, and only the dominant male is allowed to have the little yellow spots, and they mate in the rocks (fish sex!) and the catfish comes and tries to eat the eggs. Well, I think it's interesting.

- Going shopping with Yen today. Sadly, not the clothes type of shopping. Grocery shopping, actually. Gonna make me some minstrone soup. Mmmmm, nothing beats soup on a cold and rainy day. I just need a good book, and I'm set.

- Speaking of the weather, WTF type of weather is this? It's been raining every single day since exams finshed. Lucky Yee Min (and soon to be Gabs) are able to excape this by going to New York, as its summer there. Damn, they're gonna be sooo nice and tanned when they get back. I still can't believe they're in/going to New York, it just sounds so exotic and fabulous! I jealous. :( I better get awesome souvenirs, bitches!

Umm yeh. Ended up writing quite a bit huh. I know, it defeats the whole purpose of doing them in bullets when I end up writing like a paragraph for each point anyway. Anyhoo. Th-th-th-th-that's all, folks!

Keep It Real

I just read in the paper that a New Zealand couple was not allowed to name their son '4Real'. Apparently they chose that name when they saw his ultrasound and realised how real he was, or something stupid like that.

And I thought Jia Jia was bad. Heh.

Next topic. I looovveeee not having exams anymore. I don't think it was the actual studying that got me worried, it was more the guilt. You know, the guilt of having the thought of study in the back of your mind while you watch Neighbours. And Big Brother. And Big Brother uplate. When you surf the net, reading celebrity gossip blogs. When you start on a new book (as in, a fiction book, not a text book), when you've got an exam the next day. Especially when the book is 'Looking for Alibrandi', which you've read before. Yeh. No more guilt!

Went shopping yesterday with the G-meister. We went Garbo instead of caro, as we're both made of money and needed to but something real, as opposed to just random stuff you buy because its cheap. I came home with: a black chunky knit jumper from Myer, a blue henley top from Myer, a tan belt from Dotti, black knee-high tights from Witchery, sunnies from Temt, umm oh yeh and the best thing! A GIANT box of orange Tic Tacs. It's HUGE I tells ya!!

Hmm what else. Had work last night. Was working at conservatory, which is the bar in the middle of the Hyatts. Was a pretty cruisy night, stood around half the time with nothing to do. I like when I get paid to do shitall. :)

Ok that is all. Keep it real!

I Eat Cannibals!

I don't remember the last time I laughed so hard. The dance moves! The outfits! The LYRICS! The hair! I love it when you uncover Youtube gems.

Friday, June 8


You can tell its exams time when I do 3 posts in a day. Well, nope, my computer clock says its 12:02 so this is technically tomorrow. Feck, I got work tonight.

Ok, I just spent waaayyy too long messing around with the layout of this blog.

TIme I could have spent studying Biological Anthropology.


Just a quick update...

Just a quick update on what I've been up to for the last couple of weeks. I'll do them in dot points, coz you know, I'm all busy with exams and all that.

- Didn't get the admin assistant job. They wanted someone for 18 months, but I could only do 12 months (due to the prac I have in my final year). Either that, or I wasn't good enough. Sheeze, and gave myself a HUGE blister wearing my mum's shoes for nothing (they were half a size too small).

- Been studying for exams. Well, trying to. Realised that I missed exactly half the lectures for one unit (i.e. didn't go to 13 of the 26 lectures we had). Well, I had a clash for the Friday lecture, so it wasn't as though I wagged or anything. I just forgot to ilecture it during the weekends.

- Work people are really starting to grate on my nerves. Seriously, a little common courtesy on the phone would not go astray. They're super sugary nice to you if they need you to pick up extra shifts, but if you can't make it (yes, I've got a busy social life *cough*) they are so freaking rude. I'm talking hanging up the phone, yelling at you, demanding why you have plans on a Friday night. Sheeze. I don't really want to quit though, coz, I need the money and all. And the work itself isn't that bad. I just dread the 'withheld' number phone calls. *sigh*

- What else. Ohh yeahhhh! Possibly the most exciting news of all. Well, my aunt was here from Malaysia during the weekend, for a, um, visit to Burswood. Anyhoo, I went into the Pearl Room and she gave me a $1000 chip to play with. Well, minimum bet was $300 so I bet that much. It was Bacarrat. I only played three rounds (that was the most I could handle, with that much money! Nuts!). Anyhoo, I WON $900!!!! As in, I won all three rounds I played!!! AND THEN., my aunt said I could keep the money. AS IN, KEEP THE $1900. Nuts! After paying my mum the money I owed her, I still had enough to TRIPLE my bank balance. Which wasn't hard to do, considering the amount I had in there to begin with. Anyway, how fun. :)

- My cousin bought me new shoes! Black, pointy toed, slighltly raised off the ground (well, they're kinda like wedges, but almost flat). Love 'em!

- Went to an Indian restaurant for dinner, which was a first for me. They had all these different curries in different bowls with naan bread, and teh tarik. We found a suspicious-looking short, black hair in one of the curries.

Ok, time for me to hit the books. (Er, hit the WebCT? Heehee). Laters.

P.S. Yeh, that was 'Brangelina'. Or, as Mavis suggested, Brangilna. Heeee.
