A bit of linkage before I go

Comment left by a reader most likely to make me snort juice out of my nose

"i argued that hk has more to offer in terms of museums, architecture, public parks, shops- though he said london has more to offer. maybe its because im disillusioned with london and bored with this city-it is one of the most depressing cities."

Seen in the comments at Ten Things I Hate About Hong Kong

Seriously! You can stand on almost any street in South Kensington and see more museums than in the whole of Hong Kong.

"somewhere there was a mention of Cherie Blair" by Madame Chiang made me smile, although she and I seem to be bidding for the 'most stressed out by incompetence of others around us' award at the moment, she is always amusing, where as I just sound as though I'm whinging.

After working on a project on and off for about 3 months I set off to complete it today, and was foiled by the concept that Hong Kong doesn't have postcodes. I fear that chocolate is the only answer on how to deal with the frustration I am feeling right now.

frus·tra·tion [fruh-strey-shuhn]

1.act of frustrating; state of being frustrated: the frustration of the president's efforts. instance of being frustrated: to experience a series of frustrations before completing a project.
3.something that frustrates, as an unresolved problem.
4.a feeling of dissatisfaction, often accompanied by anxiety or depression, resulting from unfulfilled needs or unresolved problems.

Winding down

This time next week I'll be on tour. Posting may be light while I am away, yes even lighter than the last few weeks, but then again now I've got my macbook to play with the chances are higher that I'll be putting my day to day rambles down in some form or other.

You could always check in at Memento Mori if you miss me*, but I do plan to come back.

*ok so I know that's a stretch!

I've just taken off an outfit that I used to love, but perhaps its better suited to someone a little younger than I am. This is a first for me. Or maybe its just not suitable for the occasion tonight.


I'm still wearing my strappy high heels though, I'm not dead yet!!

Going through a bit of a blank at the moment, have so much to do my wheels are spinning. Am shuffling plans around from A to B trying to come up with an answer.


Sorting through drawers yesterday I came across a photo of someone which made me flinch, I thought I'd got rid of such reminders some time ago - but this one, this just somehow just laid there in wait for me. I only flinched for a moment before tossing it in the rubbish pile.

Today I'm meeting 4 different men for 4 different reasons.


I'm getting used to using my macbook, although I probably never realised how many shortcuts I used which I now have to relearn.


I'm craving ginger.

I just broke my gmail.

Probably the worse time to do so as well. Am expecting a couple of emails that I have to reply to asap.

A day to snuggle up on the sofa

It's raining here, hard.
But that's ok because I've got oodles of things I should be doing around the flat. However as its such a horrible day I'm going to curl up on the sofa with a few books and pretend that everything isn't crowding in on me. I'm getting a little overwhelmed by my 'to do' list.

Favourite quote of the day

Nearly naked

In my haste to get organised and pack up my apartment ahead of my move, I've misjudged the contents of my wardrobe. This morning it was a litttttttle tricky finding a suitable outfit for work, everything seems to be either packed, in need of ironing* or in the laundry basket.
Hmmmm things can only get worse.

*A little tricky as I have sold my iron, I never used it much anyway.

Ohhhhhh its like learning to walk all over again, but this time in different shoes.

Monday, June 04, 2007

Oh I love new toys!! Now I just have to start drinking coffee to make full use of it obviously!

Women In Art

This is one of the best clips I've seen in a very long time


I was talking to someone today, he wanted to buy a table I am selling and asked if it could be easily transported.

Mia: Well the legs of the table don't fold, but you can unscrew them.

A: Oh, right, then how would I put them back again.

Mia: With a screwdriver.

A: I can't do that.

Mia: You don't have a screwdriver? You can buy one very cheaply from the shop along the road.

A: No, I mean I don't know how to use one.

Mia: Oh.

I could never ever take ANYONE seriously who had reached his mid 30's and never used a screwdriver.

Pirate Wench wanabe

Ohhhhhhh finally a reality TV show that I could imagine watching!

OK, so not really, but I do have a 'thing' for pirates, have done ever since I was 13 and had an erotic dream about being kidnapped by a band of them and being lashed to the mast. . .


Best stop there I think.
