Not ok!

Now, let me start off by clarifying something: I am in no way fashionable.

Nuh-uh, not at all.

I have been in a committed relationship with animal print for about five years, wear long dresses out in the Valley when every other girl is baring her butt in a mini, have a penchant for cardigans, dress in a slightly librarianish sense for work with plain block colours, and will choose comfort over style in 99% of cases.

But there are far worse offenders than I.

The faux leather jacket wearer. HORRID! What were you thinking? A leather jacket can be difficult to pull off, as you need the right cut and a good fit. However, when you replace the creamy, soft leather with cheap, cracked PVC you will just look like a thug from North London.

The too many trends in one outfit wearer. Your overwhelming use of fleeting fashion gives me a headache. The oversized headband with the shoulder pads with the floral skirt with the statement tights with the ankle boots is too much. Coco Chanel was wrong - you shouldn't take one thing off before you walk out the door, you should take off four.

The corporate shorts wearer. No. Just, no. I don't care if they are tailored, I don't care if they are designer, I don't care if they are teamed with tights, I don't care if you have a matching blazer, you do not wear shorts in the workplace. You cannot wear cropped pants in the office and expect to be taken seriously.

Okay, so I just realised that my last three posts have all been bulletin of the week. Time to pull my finger out.

I bought a motorbike! It's a black 1991 Suzuki GN250 and he's name is Rusty and I love him. He's not the prettiest thing, with his flaking paintwork and corrosion on the exhaust pipe and his cranky gearbox, but he's mine! We've been for a few rides around Brisbane the past couple of weekends, and I'm looking forward to some longer rides this weekend.

I got older! I had my birthday earlier this week. You don't need to know exactly how old I am, only that I am still in my mid-20's. And will be for many years to come.

I got tickets to Splendour! And then freaked out when the reality of camping hit home. Fortunately, Tom has said that I can sleep in his station wagon as he finds it too claustrophobic, and Matty has a portable hot shower. Everyone needs keep their phones on them that weekend in case I call up, crying, needing to be rescued.

I started full time in my new job! I don't know why I used an exclamation mark there, except for consistency. It's interesting work, but it is very busy. Hence the lack of blog entries.

And speaking of which, back to it now...

Bulletin of the week

Hair Extensions for Sale!!
I have 3x15cm Chocolate brown clip in hair extension pieces for sale. They are fairly long and probably go halfway down your back when put in properly. Most hairdressers will be able to style these into your hair if required for a decent price.The extensions are 100% real human hair. This means they can be cut, coloured, straightened and curled etc just like your own hair.

It would seem that the bulletin board is now a place to reveal your dirty little secrets.

(PS. I know I've been a slack blogger, more new MumblePants content soon, I promise!)
