Lettuce seems to be an ideal vegetable; it's usually pretty cheap, a good filler, can be transported easily, and has good vitamins. It comes in a variety of...styles?(Ihaventhadmycoffeeyet) that suit many people's tastes, and you can pick it up at any grocery store you go to. Lettuce is a staple of the shopping cart. We … Continue reading Let’s talk about lettuce
I've always been someone who wakes up early. When I was a kid, I would have to bring a book and a snack to sleepovers because I would always be the first person to wake. I'd sit there reading my book and munching my snack for an hour or two waiting while my friends dozed … Continue reading Saturday morning. 6:15am.
So there's this thing that's happening in North America right now - Gilda's Club, a charity organization that raises money to support people with cancer, and which is named after famed comedian Gilda Radner, is changing it's name to something more generic. The reason? Young kids don't know who Gilda Radner is. Look, if you don't know … Continue reading Who the Fuck is Susan G Komen?
I'm having a really hard time getting into the Christmas spirit down here. To me, Christmas is cold. Autumn comes and the air gets crisp and my body starts craving potatoes and apples and soup, and that's how I know it's time to start searching through the Sears Wishbook. Christmas is snow on the … Continue reading Step Into Christmas

Some people can’t wait until Christmas. Others are big into their birthdays. Some go all out for St Patrick’s Day, and some say Thanksgiving is their favourite time of year. For me, it’s Halloween. I love Halloween. Since I was a kid, it’s been my favourite non-holiday, full of fun and candy and drinking and … Continue reading HAPPY HAL…October 31st 😦
This trip has made me pretty easy-going. Well, compared to what I used to be like anyways. You know how when you ask someone if they're spontaneous you usually get an answer of "yes", "no" or "sometimes"? With me, the answer is "I'm spontaneous as long as I know what time we're doing things and … Continue reading MAKE. A. DECISION. Or not. Whatever I’m so easygoing LOL!!1
When I first decided to run away for a year, I was adamant that traveling in your late 20s was heaps better than traveling in your early 20s; you get more out of things, you know yourself better, you remember simple moments, and you won’t let yourself have drunk sex with an Irish guy in … Continue reading Long-Term Travel in Your Late 20s is Super Stupid
I've been in NZ for three months now (three months today!) and I've noticed quite a few differences between here and home. Lots of things we have are the same...but different: 1. Drinks When I'm not cleaning toilets at my current job, I spend the day serving drinks to people. At home, most people would … Continue reading The same, but different
Conga Lines are fucking ridiculous. They're the stupidest things to happen to awesome parties. I've been thinking a lot about weddings lately (don't ask) and about wedding receptions. Look, I love weddings. I cry, I laugh, I love the energy and the love and the shitty food and the fact that everyone dances and you … Continue reading Conga Lines
I've finally started telling people about my decision to move to Australia (I say "finally" not because I've known I was going to do this for ages, but rather because I'm impatient and excited and want to do nothing but tell everyone). Everyone's reactions seem to follow the same pattern: 1. Wow! That's amazing! I'm … Continue reading Why are you doing this?
