Cocking a Snook

In a fit of randomness, I decided to look up ‘snook’ in the dictionary. Huh. It’s a fish!

1   /snuk, snʊk/
–noun, plural (especially collectively) snook, (especially referring to two or more kinds or species) snooks.

2. any of several related marine fishes.

Here’s the definition I was expecting:

Nothing to Say…

… so I thought I’d show you embarrassing photos.

This first is me in the morning. Pre-coffee. Scary, huh? Now you know why people do what I say. Weird hair colour? In the middle of bleaching it from black (dyed) to bright blonde.

This is me now-ish. new hair colours. Nice and bright, to go with my standard black clothing. If I buy anything else, ya see, I risk having it clash with my hair in the not-too-distant future 😉

Screw Up Tuesday


Here’s a screwup for Bettina’s theme day.

I was sure I had a post all written and set up for publication today.


I have no idea what it was about, other than that it was brilliant.


I think I’ve been dreaming life instead of living it again.


There is a bright side, though.

I have written fiction recently. There’s an update on Kyle and Merryl’s daughter Monica (ooooh, that’s an old series!) in Disaster, and a couple of new-ish Pete & Wendy stories – Bad Cop and Just Visiting.

Musical Monday

I thought I’d mosey back to the 90’s for one of my favourite video clips:

The Offspring – Pretty Fly for a White Guy

Bahahaha! I love that guy.

And while I was looking for THAT, I found this:

The Offspring – Pretty Fly for a White Guy – Anime clip

Incredibly well done, eh?



Absolutely nothing to report.

Boring, huh?

I’ve spent most of the weekend, including Friday, asleep or lazing about.

Because some dumb-ass passed some manky virus to me. Thankfully, a fairly minor one. But it was still irritating. Cos I’d already crashed, dammit.

Ah well. I’m OK. But I could do with another nanna nap 😉


Someday I’ll have to count the number of posts I’ve made with that title 🙂

Anyhow, this is just to say that my body’s run out of steam.

I’d been feeling remarkably (for me) energetic for the last few weeks. Apart from the virus and miscarriage, anyway. Err, sigh. But I’ve noticed that I have a cycle of feeling better, doing more, feeling good, feeling less energetic but still doing the same amount, then – SPLAT.

I splatted.

The Coffee or the Cup?

Now here’s an interesting dilemma…

You’re a young female (that might take some imagination). You have breasts (again). They’re not quite as big as you’d like.

You love coffee. Possibly long walks on the beach, too, but that’s irrelevant.

You discover – to your horror – that coffee makes your breasts smaller.

What do you do?

This nasty little dilemma was brought to my attention by LeechBabe on the Aussie Bloggers Forum. Thanks, love! 🙂
