The Notebook ... Vomit. And win a bird

Watched The Notebook on DVD last night. Please don't if you haven't yet. Apart from the highly unbelievable plot, the manic, happy laughing scenes and mediocre acting, it's just terribly bile inducing. I told my DVD comrade 'be prepared, I'm most likely going to cry like a little bitch'. There were no tears, just the faint noise of retching and groaning at the clunky dialogue. Don't waste 2 hours of your life, read a book instead or surf YouTube for a while.




There is some new stuff up on my Etsy store, little best friend matching chickens and some fish. If you don't like red meat, it's the perfect accessory.


Also a few more days left to comment and win this bird (on this post or the one below).


I celebrated my 30th on the weekend (prematurely) as boy crafter will studying up at La Sabana for the actual day (a long way away). So I told him it was all about me, and we spent all day Saturday doing exactly that. Went to GoMA and saw the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial. Fantastic, go if you are in Brisbane. The room full of white string is just so cool, I want a room like that at home. I am going to have to go back though as I missed the one exhibit I went specifically to see ... the glass ball deer or 'Taxidermied elk. See here

The string room ...

After a bit of culture we stopped at The Joynt for beer and a bite. This is really a great little local bar that serves the emerging Brisbane music scene well. If you're in town check it out (preferably after a stint at the APT6).

Lastly we took the Italian road monster up the mountain with cheese and crackers and watched the Samford Valley vista fade as the sun set behind us. Best way to end the day xoxox
