The long, long weekend

Woah has the internet been broken! And the weekend busy!

… And SUNNY. Yes, it has been DELICIOUSLY sunny. I have been amazed at how broken/ busy/ sunny/ delicious the weekend has been.

These are the things that have made this weekend so busy/ sunny/ delicious and ended in me being a little broken:

– I have been watching Game of Thrones which is quite good, especially the second episode. I love historical fiction, and this is historical fiction AND fantasy which is even more fun!

PICKLE FISH! My nana makes pickled fish. It’s DELIGHTFUL. It sounds gross… don’t let the name fool you. We only get this once a year. Like Santa. But more edible.

– The Easter had DONKEY in the park. This was fun, I discovered that I can catch. Although the two oldest players (an uncle and a cousin’s boyfriend) seemed the least able to figure out how to play. Really, the cousin who’s in kindergarten can figure it out but a 30- and 50-year-old can’t?

– Easter also bought with it bacon and egg muffins on the BBQ. Easy peasy; KRAFT cheese on English muffins, bacon on top, egg cooked in a ring and plonked on while it’s still gooey with a dash of Worcestershire or HB sauce.

– In McCrae, I sat on the mountain called Arthur’s Seat, on a big verandah that looked down onto the ocean, with two lovely girls and listened to Adele’s album 21 and read Let the Right One In (where vampires are actually scary and do not sparkle in a silly fashion) and drank Beez Neez with nachos. Yum yum!

– The graphic novel V for Vendetta is a very vivaciously vivid… vasterpiece? I then watched Natalie Portman shave her head in the film version. Both are fun, with big explosions.

– Smashed avocado. Thyme. Mushrooms. Thick, crusty bread. Poached egg. Bacon. Latte… Sorrento.

– I also ate Lindt chocolate, as is expected on Easter.

So many things! What did you do this long long weekend?


5 things I am enjoying:

…Watching The Pillars of the Earth (trailer here). The book is awesome, too. Isn’t it great when the characters in the series version look just like they do in your head when you read the book?

…Smashed avocado with thyme sautéed mushrooms and feta and basil and a poached egg. I had it at Porgie + Mr Jones in Camberwell on the weekend whilst suffering from a monster of a hangover, and it was delicious (but just secretly I reckon it’s even MORE delicious at Friends of Mine on Swan St).

I didn’t take a photo of mine as I pretty much demolished it immediately. This photo is by Emily and Saskia.


…Speaking of monsters, Kanye West and the slightly silly song Monster… Can’t get over the absurd line about sexing a pharaoh and a pussy in a sarcophagus. Odd.

…The fact that nana and great-aunty Denise are coming to stay over tonight and my sister and I are taking them out to lunch tomorrow! Maybe for yum-cha, or sandwiches and tea somewhere fancy. Great-aunty Denise is the best crocheter I ever met!

and… the fact that it’s pay day tomorrow! Yay! I’m out of Gen Mai Cha Sencha tea and would like some pretty stationary to start uni with, preferably from Kikki K. Plus I’ll probably have to spend about a hundred on art supplies as per usual. Sigh.

Oh and Pip linked this at Meet Me At Mike’s but it made me laugh so much that I need to link it too… Noel Fielding as an all-too-convincing Kate Bush! Over here!
