don't mind me, just posting this for my own reference but don't feel the need to make it private.
i wanna collate inspirations for my ideal bag as at some point when (not if) i go back to bali, i'll get it made. this bag's boring, apart from the dozens of [supporty-studs-i-know-the-technical-name-of-but-am-frustrated-as-can't-remember], which i think's kinda genius 'cos in my world too much metal hardware is never enough.

"I have noticed that what this pen writes in my diary are the exact same thoughts that i have in my mind. Can this pen be reading my thoughts, i mean, is this at all possible?"

choc espresso cake recipe
found a similar one online!


smaller quantities of ingredients for the recipe i used:

2 tbs espresso coffee
150g unsalted butter
3/4 cup almond meal
5 eggs, separated
200g dark choc
2/3 cup caster sugar
plus 1 tbs rum or brandy

follow the same method, but add the rum/brandy when you add the coffee and cook for 40 minutes.

you will NOT regret making this.

i dunno if these things i'm posting are old, or new, or 48 other LJers posted them in the last 48 hours or what, so don't mind me if i'm, like, so 2004, or hip, or oblivious.

a woman sketched inside out:

also, i figured since i don't really use my bookmarks as they're beyond a gazillion and i really can't be bothered sifting through that insanity, i'll just put stuff i like here, instead. that's why.

Choice non-words
Because I'm sifting through newspaper cut-outs to throw stuff out and came across them.

ACCIDUE: Small pile of broken glass, chrome and other debris that remains at the scene several months after an accident.
MOWERHAWK: The strip of grass that remains here and there after mowing the lawn.
BIBMIO: The fictional data on the back side of a Playboy centrefold.
INDIGESTURES: The hollow gestures and half-hearted protestations you feel required to make when someone else is picking up the bill.
COMPIZZABLE: The capacity for a group to actually agree upon pizza topping.
DIETRIBE: All the daily specials you allow a waiter to reel off even though you already know what you want.
PASTAPLEGIC: Person who's eaten so much spaghetti they can't move.
And my fave
CIRCUMVACULATE: To remain stationary while vacuuming in a circle around oneself.

Office Dares
Let me double-barrel preface this by stating that
a) Seeing as though we're all teckologicly advanced enough to write in live journals, I realise that 9/10 readers have already read this, including me
b) Usually I hate forwarded joke mails

Despite that, I just got this in my inbox and thought it was as silly as I did the first time.

1) Run one lap around the office at top speed.
2) Groan out loud 'It's coming!' in the bathroom cubicle (at least one other 'non-player' must be in the bathroom at the time).
3) Ignore the first five people who say 'good morning' to you.
4) Phone someone in the office you barely know, leave your name and say "Just called to say I can't talk right now. Bye".
5) To signal the end of a conversation, clamp your hands over your ears and grimace.
6) When someone hands you a piece of paper, finger it, and whisper huskily, "Mmmmmmm, that feels soooooo good!".
7) Leave your zipper open for one hour. If anyone points it out, say, "Sorry, I really prefer it this way".
8) Walk sideways to the photocopier.
9) While riding an elevator, gasp dramatically every time the doors open.

1) Say to your boss, "I like your style" and shoot him with double-barrelled fingers.
2) Babble incoherently at a fellow employee then ask "Did you get all that, I don't want to have to repeat it".
3) Page yourself over the intercom (do not disguise your voice).
4) Kneel in front of the water cooler and drink directly from the nozzle (there must be a 'non-player' within sight).
5) Shout random numbers while someone is counting.

1) At the end of a meeting, suggest that, for once, it would be nice to conclude with the singing of the national anthem extra points if you actually launch into it yourself).
2) Walk into a very busy person's office and, while they watch you with growing irritation, turn the light switch on/off 10 times.
3) For an hour, refer to everyone you speak to as "Bob".
4) Announce to everyone in a meeting that you "really have to go do a number two".
5) After every sentence, say 'mon' in a really bad Jamaican accent, e.g. "the report's on your desk, mon". Keep this up for one hour.
6) While an office mate is out, move their chair into the elevator.
7) In a meeting or crowded situation, slap your forehead repeatedly and mutter, "Shut up, damn it, all of you just shut up!"
8) At lunchtime, get down on your knees and announce "As God is my witness, I'll never go hungry again".
9) In a colleague's diary, write in 10am: "See how I look in tights".
10) Carry your keyboard over to your colleague and ask "You wanna trade?"
11) Repeat the following conversation 10 times to the same person: "Do you hear that?" "What?" "Never mind, it's gone now".
12) Come to work in army fatigues and when asked why, say, "I can't talk about it".
13) Posing as a maitre d', call a colleague and tell him he's won a lunch for four at a local restaurant. Let him go.
14) Speak with an accent (French, German, Porky Pig, etc) during a very important conference call.
15) Find the vacuum and start vacuuming around your desk.
16) Hang a two-foot long piece of toilet roll from the back of your pants and act genuinely surprised when someone points it out.

I can see Daruba doing some of these.

I prefer keeping this journal mostly low-fi for a few reasons, chief of which is I can't be arsed changing anything (yet). Christ, inserting italics is too much of an administrative task for me at times.

Come on over to sanssouci's, we're mixing all sorts of horrid celebrity death couplets there.

mine thus far:

courtney, courtney, pudding and pie,
kised the kurt and made him die.

jimbo, what was up wif choo:
drowning in a bath of your own spew?

River the coke up his nose he would swipe,
No shock Martha found him dead at the Vipe.

Di did die and Dodi did too,
Now we groan as Camilla at Big Ears does coo.

Dorothy at men would often make passes,
Shame she required both types of glasses.

Woeful, groan-worthy stuff. Fun.

"Australia is not a poor man's America. Its dreams are different - not epics of belligerent triumph, mechanically subjugating the wilderness, but elegies that stoically accept man's necessary defeat by inimical nature. Americans are fanatical optimists, while Australians are laconically, humourously tragic. The American dream deludingly promises to deliver whatever you wish for, and when it fails to do so the result is disillusionment, fury, a craving for revenge. The dreaming of the Australian Aborigines has nothing to do with fame and riches, swimming pools and high-rises; it is a reverie, a morose reminder of our mortality."
- Peter Conrad, from an article in the Herald.
