My beloved scored herself some big brownie points recently. She booked us on a cruise to New Caledonia.

Oh yes she DID!

I am so EXCITED about this!

We set sail next week, which means that we’re entering the business end of preparations.

Yes. It’s time.


What could possibly go wrong?

I was reminded of the essential nature of waxing and hair removal over the weekend. Perhaps it was a subliminal message, perhaps it was coincidence, perhaps I am making a link that would be best left alone. However, I took this photo, and all I can think think about is waxing:


That’s my Scouty’s bum, by the way. Pretty bizarre photo, huh.

Anyway anyway, I’m going to try to get through this hair removal period without inflicting serious injury. After all, I’m almost fully dextrous at the moment:


I think this one is going to have some challenges…

I recently started writing as a part of ABC Online, and the theme for March is “Cringe”. Needless to say, I had a lot of fodder for this one. In the end, I submitted the nipple-stuck-in-a-fan story. It seems to be my most memorable moment. But that could be because I forgot about the time the lounge tried to eat me. What’s peculiar though is that while I usually hear back from the editing powers that be within a few days, this time, after submitting a shorter version of the nipple story, I haven’t heard a thing!

Is it ok to talk about nipples when you’re writing for the ABC?

Do you do your own waxing?

  1. I went away with a group of girlfriends last weekend for a few days of scrapbooking. I forgot the following, my pillows, a blanket, the salt and pepper (it was on my list) my comb, my asthma medication and much more. We went for 2 nights and we do this 3 or 4 times a year and have done for the last 4 years or so. I shouldn’t even need a stinking list.

    Good luck with the DIY waxing, wear boardies and forget about the whole thing.
