Time flies by, pretty quick, huh? One moment, you’re looking at the snow (IN APRIL) and really wishing winter would hurry up and leave already – the next you are nursing a nice sunburn. (This probably has more to do with my natural
deathly milk white paleness English Rose complexion.)
I’ve been living in Canada for the better part of a year now, and boy oh boy, do I miss my books. (Oh. And my family. Them too.)
MY GOSH YOU’VE BEEN POSTING SO MUCH RECENTLY /s
Okay. Fine. I haven’t. I’ve drafted lots and lots of blog posts (probably five. or four. or three) – rants and ravings about winter and loathing coats and wonderful things like that, but – much like my ability to sprout wings and fly and boil eggs and that sort of thing – they never happened.
I am alive though. Even though I seem to try very hard not to be; I still sometimes look the wrong way when crossing the road. Bad idea. Very bad idea.
SO WHAT *HAVE* YOU BEEN UP TO?
This year has been like one giant working holiday. (With emphasis on the working.) I work pretty much full-time, harass colleagues with Very Bad And Punny Jokes, harass everyone with Very Bad And Punny Jokes, have a weekend adventure or two, sing, go for long romantic side-walk walks for one, visit the library, hang out with friends, speak Very Bad French, spend money wisely, and occasionally put my big girl socks on and write.
Okay. So the walk has happened twice, one of my friends deserted me for England, and I don’t visit the library all the time. Pfft.
(I just get a shelf load of books out and stare at them lovingly.)
I do think that buying an expensive top which pictures a cat riding a unicorn to be a good investment. Think about it; the top is clothing. Clothing stops you from being naked. BOOM. It’s vital.
SO YOU HAVE SOME PRETTY BIG NEWS?
Yes!!!! I do. I do.
(But, not in a marriage sense.)
I – she of the pen name Ness Kingsley – am going to a gym tomorrow. Yes. I know. WHAAAATTTT?!!!!!! How exciting. And very, very all-the-world-does-it-or-has-a-membership-they-don’t-use of you. I’ve never set a toe in a proper one before. I fully expect to develop abs on my thighs by mere osmosis. It’ll totally happen!
WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO YOUR EYES?!!!
Okay. Gather round, friends – time for a quick life lesson in the form of two quotes from me:
Gee! Let me use this used make-up with its used make-up brushes! Why golly gosh! Nothing bad will happen!
me – tuesday evening
me – wednesday morning
Infection. That’s what happens. (Infection or an allergic reaction, but probably most likely an infection.)
Infection and red, red demon eyes that look like you’ve:
- just murdered someone
- been strangled
- cried buckets and buckets of soul tears because of Infinity Wars
Don’t be me, kids. Don’t use used make-up brushes or make-up. Yes, the war face you made was EPIC, but was it worth it? Was it really worth it?
No … well, probably not.
(The war face was pretty epic.)
