Happy Halloween!

Trick_or_treat

I know most Australians don’t celebrate Halloween, but I think this is mostly due to a misunderstanding of exactly what Halloween is. It’s not solely an American tradition, it has nothing to do with the devil and it’s actually a really great excuse to dress up like zombies, watch scary movies and give people free lollies! What’s not to love?

Do you celebrate Halloween? If so, how? If not, why not?

Look! Halloween can even be cute!

Happy New Year!

Happy_New_Year

I don’t normally do the whole New Year’s resolution thing, but there are some pressing things that I know I need to work on, and I figure that the coming new year is as good a time as any to start. So, here’s my list (which is subject to change at my whim):


1. Stop Googling my symptoms at 2 am

2. Do more yoga

3. Leave my house occasionally and mix with the other humans

4. Turn 40 in November with some sense of grace and dignity (not likely)

5. Get back into my size ten clothes

6. Drink fewer White Russians (which will help with #5)

7. Produce more art

8. Read more books

9. Grow my own vegetables

10. Try harder

Happy New Year, everyone, and if you want to share your resolutions with me I’d love to hear them!
