Do you have a blog? Or read a really great blog? If so pleeeease put a link in the comments below, I’m desperate for some new reading material. I like blogs about everything, but not about too much of one thing, if you get what I mean? Nothing too FAHSHUN or food or whatever. A mix, a match, a stew, a gumbo, a jumbalaya if you will. (if no one gets that reference to the Spice Girls movie I might die a little on the inside…).
Speaking of blogs, last weekend I came across GOMI (Get Off My Internets) which is basically a hub for internet trolls to rub their horns together and tear shreds off well known blogs. Never before have I read so much hate filled vitriol. The disdain for The Londoner was out of this world. And so personal. How about just not reading if you’re not picking up what a certain blogger is putting down?! I guess that would be too easy.
On a funnier note I chuckled heartily at this list of 30 Things Journalists Do That Piss Off Other Journalists. YES to most of this. Especially this:
And also this:
Continuing on along the same black and white vein I spent the most part of Wednesday dressed unwittingly as Bob Dylan:
My sister said it’s mainly the shoes. Dammit Bob. Those are this season’s* hottest Senso boots. If I wear them and have to look like an ageing rockstar then so be it.
And finally, today I am headed 400km inland to a three day rodeo event on the edge of the Nullarbor, appropriately titled the Nullarbor Muster. I’m going to go skeet shootin’, watch cowboys ride bulls, unofficially judge the ‘best turned out ute’ competition, drink a fair amount and
dance boot scoot Saturday night away in a tin shed.
In other words it’s going to be exactly like the previous two years I’ve been except for one vital difference:
THIS YEAR I HAVE A HAT. Finally. Not quite an Akubra, I didn’t fancy forking out over a hundred bucks for something I’ll wear for three days a year, but close enough.
I’ve got my hat, boots and Canadian tuxedo (double denim ensemble) ready to roll, this year I’ll be the one fitting in. Can’t wait!
Have a great weekend! And remember, put links to blogs in the comments section. Muchas Gracias!
