Ric's, you old dog you

The weekend got off to a good start with a burrito at Mad Mex and then some bevies at Ric's, my old drinking haunt. We got talking about music, as you do at a live music joint and discussed at length 'having it'. Mike Paton has it, Nick Cave has it Tex Perkins, hell yeah, he has it. Some ladies who have it, Deborah Harry, Stevie Nicks and Kim Gordon. What makes these performers so darn hot? What makes someone 'not'? Mull it over, and here's a quote from Mr REread while you're at it.

"Nickleback is ... if you travelled through a transdimensional porthole, through a space/time continuum and found a version of Metallica, expect they'd all be wankers who had been breastfed for too long."

Has it ...

Um ... not

hello weekend ...

I deliberately used a lowercase 'h' in the title ... 'hello' just looks so much nicer with a lowercase 'h'. So hello weekend and see you later working week!

Stuff I fricken love - nice comments

Sometimes random people will say 'I love your brooch', whether it's one of my own designs or one of the many, many gorgeous brooches I've collected over the years - it makes me feel good. There is nothing like a nice comment in person or 'in blog' to make one feel a little bit chuffed and just a little bit nice. Next time you see someone with a funky-ass skirt, a rocking do or a killer smile, drop them a line.

Nice tatt ... 

Nice pony ...

Nice hat ...

Stuff I fricken love - deers

I love deer, reindeer especially. I've found some of the dear little ruminants I'd like to bring home. They're all on Etsy. Enjoy!

Stuff I fricken love - Lingham's chilli

Hello blog. Sorry I've been away, a bit distracted, too caught-up with work, dogs, budget airlines etc. I'm back and have made a resolve to get back to the 'art of crafting'. It makes me happy, it keeps me out of trouble and I get to swan about in lovely crafty circles full of wonderful people like you!

The next few blog post are about stuff I love, things I can't live without, things I miss when I go overseas. Number one ... let's keep it simple and hot. It's Lingham's chilli sauce, yummy, natural ingredients and no garlic. Don't get me wrong, I've no beef with garlic I just prefer it stay out of my chilli, sugary goodness. The particular sauce has a life partner - sour cream. You need to go and get you some of this red deliciousness. Hot dang!
