“Hey Babe….So Brave Of You To Show Your Face Here”

  Getting older comes with a lot of crappy things. Medical cover. Mammograms. Matching linen with your teal trimmings. It also comes with some good stuff too. Clarity. The ability to stand up for yourself. And a genuine Zero Tolerance policy for bitchy dramatics.   Without these things (and home Nescafe machines) adulthood would be…

I HAVE A DREAM. (And it comes true because I’m totally psychic)

When I was little I had a very strict morning routine. I would wake up in my wooden boat-bed filled with sunrise enthusiasm and quickly bound into my parents’ room. “Do you guys want to know what I dreamed last night?” Jumping straight in between the groggy pair, I would launch into the most interesting,…

Nothing ever changes…

The cutest thing since Rudy Huxtable just happened. A little boy named Mitch called the radio show I work on. He told me what his name was and that he was 9 years old. He asked me if we could please play a song for a girl named Zoe. He was very shy. I told…

Love a good theory…

I love a good theory. That is why I called this post ‘Love a good theory’. (#perfecttitle) Over the weekend some friends and I came up with a coupla’ crackers…   There’s the Sydney Messina Complex Theory… This basically consists of the eastern suburb obsession with “flavour of the month”. Of course we related this…
