Stationary is Sexy!

So today, i did my favorite kind of shopping.
I had a craving of the stationary i went to office works with my sister Tosha and her boyfriend Jack.
Here we are in the very extensive office chairs section.....of corse we had a race it wouldnt have been a trip to office works without one!

Most girls go shoe shopping if they are a little depressed, i do that sometimes too.
But the only kind of shopping that really hits the spot for me when i am a little down in the dumps is stationary.
Maybe its the vast array of note pad's, drawing pins with little hearts on them, personalised binders and my personal obsession labeling machines.....

On friday night i felt like crap after having another fight with my exboyfriend.
Not being noticed and being ignored is the worst feeling ever, i dont know if its this impending st valetines day thats coming up that has made me on edge and slightly self concious that i will be all alone on the 14th of this month.
Anyway, so after a day in bed and crying over stupid films last night and not eating much, i knew i had to pick my skinny ass up out of bed and go to office works. Just wandering the isles of embossed paper and filo-faxes made me feel better.

Now i am going to open all my stuff and feel bad about all the excessive packaging that cant be recycled.

watching: Playtime, a french movie from the 70's very funny, also got out elizabethtown last night from the video shop.
Couldnt focus that much because my mum kept on saying i am like kirstin dunst's character.....its ok though.

Listening to: Cat Power greatest hits, Brian Wilson-smile, !!! - feel good hit of the fall

Friday on my mind.....

So friday was finally here, i had a lettering class in the afternoon which seemed to endlessly drag on.
There is only so many times you can write the alphabet without going slightly mad.
Had arranged to meet Steele Bonus at 5.30 outside Benny's work on crown st. I was late and met him at 6.30 at china heights.
The exhibition was good, saw my good friend's gareth and dom who i hadnt seen in a while.
Anyway, i drank too much and fell down a hill grazing my hands i am still suffering from the gravel in my palms......the highlight of the night was having a hot-dog with sam (my main gay.....everyone needs a main gay in their lives.) he got a pepperoni slice, but was jealous of my hot dog because of the cheese sauce that looks like cum dribbled all over my face. He said it was just like a perverted Terry Richardson advert.
Here we are looking like we have been busted doing in an alley.....:

Steele Bonus at Judgement bar......approx 3.30am.

This man is an eligable bachalor ladies, he is the best, likes squash, a good dutch beer and his oma's Het Gouden Speculaasje
(delicous spiced dutch cookie). Lately he has been having a bit of bad luck with the cut this short, skanks need not apply, but if you a sweet little lady who wants a piece of the Bone-Man email me and i will set you up!
I woke up yesterday feeling very ill, no doubt it was from those dodgy free brazillian beers me and mick were skulling at the exhibition. (sorry i accidently deleted that photo of us sweets, lets meet up tomorrow afternoon so i can give you that new music anyway)

Listening to: Fuck Buddies - Invasion..... check their myspace! They are very good.

Gullivers Travels

Well today was scary.
I had my computers class in the morning and there is a very very obese girl in the class.
Not the type of person you see at Mc Donald's and you think, "oh slow down you dont need those 3 cheese burgers and super size coke" but the type of obese that you see on an oprah health special "shock woman at 350 pounds".
Anyway, we were in this computers class and she falls off her chair pulls down the table also and started grabing her chest,
the teacher was out of the room and all the other girls are screaming so i run over and with the help of three other girls roll her into the recovery position. She got taken to hospital and is fine.
But it was like Gullivers Travels, anyone who know's me know's i am not very big, i am 166cm and 54kg, this girl is at probably 200kg. After that i was too scared to each lunch in fear of ever getting that fat.

x nurse nella to the rescue.

Woe is me at work......

Yes. Here i am at work, i have had many various exciting jobs.
This one involves amazing art work, really expensive cars, decorative arts that if you break you would have to sell your house to pay for them, creepy dolls that people collect.....but sometimes it involves staring at a computer all day entering consignment numbers.....eeeeerrrrrrrrrr.
To make up for it i must do something really exciting.....pity i already know that tomorrow i will be sitting at st vincents hospital waiting for an appointment with my hand micro-surgeon for my operation that i have coming up....
then i will have hand therapy for an least i get a scar tissue massage with that.
Oh well. I think i will drink lots of red wine and bake cookies tonight, to make up for all this mess and bore.

woe is me......

p.s i hate all this saint valentines day is very depressing when you have no valentine.

the wierd ways of 20-25year old boys....

Why do boys at this age bother to have girlfriends?
It doesnt matter how much they say they love you, its just a series of damn infatuations...
Why are boys so scared of liking girls, to the point of where they do realise they like them and they do something really mean and stupid to the girl because they do like them. And when your with them they think that being wasted is an excuse to cheat on you because everyone does it.
This has really been bugging me lately.

Maybe its time for a boy detox........


Is it fact or crap that Roland Mouret is going to Chloe now that Phoebe Philo is leaving??
Is the famous 'Galaxy Dress' dress going to work in the softest off white cotton lace that only Chloe can do.....
You know what i mean if you have worn it, its the type of fabric in a chloe dress that when you are walking on a hot summers day and you pass under the shade of a tree and a cool breeze passes and the flow of the dress brushes your legs and you get goose bumps!

Thank you Larsey (prinny number3) for carrying my shopping on that freezing french day.

I love you.....SKYPE ME!!!!!!!!!

the nella chronicles

Just a little more on franz ferdinand....
I thought that their side show at the enmore was fantastic and far better and more exciting and brilliant than any other show i saw that week.
Before seeing them, i never thought of them as a band that was different from that whole wave of music....
I dont think i would have even gone to their show if i hadnt been given a pass. (Thanks Tim Hoey!)
After the show, backstage mitchell fell asleep in his band room which was hallarious.
Hickey was equally hallarious sticking signs on the chairs (V.I.C = VERY IMPORTANT CUTTERS).
Then we went to the after party where i briefly met Alex Karprinos. A few things i liked, mainly his ability to wear red ( When i wear red it makes me look slightly jaundous and ill)and i also liked that he introduced himself with a firm handshake.
So now in retrospective and after reading their band blog on their website, i think that they are a very good band. I also like the speed of their new song....its a little faster.
My ex boyfriend Glen fancies himself to look like Alex Kaprinos.....i will post some photo's later and anyone who reads this can comment on if they think so or not....I didnt when Glen first mentioned it, but after meeting him i think he does kind of.
Also if anyone knows Alex Kaprinos....maybe they can show him. end this is for Jude who just had the stick figure in this next photo's baby.....congratulations...... and i have posted a gift.

I took it whilst in JB (JUST BABES) HIFI on sunday whilst my best friend josephine shopped for dvd's.

I am still sick and my head is feeling like a ball of snot.
Will post a recipe for amazing bananna cake when i get home.


The first chronicle.......

This is the first chronicle........
Just spent the evening blowing my nose, and watching some DVD that one of my sisters stalkers made for her with video clips he had some how recorded on to VHS from rage and such then put them on DVD. 5 DVD's with 4 hours of video clips on each one. See he is a stalker, the guy had nothing better to do than make my sister these DVD's, probably on a saturday night, probably doing gross 17 year old boy things over a photo of her in between pressing burn on imovie.
Saying that, they were actually quite good, lots of Blur and other various britpop, although on that range there was a lack of supergrass. Highlight was Chrissie Amphlett : Science Fiction. She is amazing, i plan on reading her auto-bigography before the summer is out. I really like the high pitch ...... woohhhoooooowww's she does in the middle of her song.

Its a monday evening here and now.....and the weekend just past was slightly eventful and slightly dumb.
The slightly eventful part went like this:
My good friend Mikey asked me if i would partake in his 'POD WARS' night he was doing at the cricketers arms hotel on saturday. I said 'SURE'. The idea was that each participant would get 20mins and have either an already selected playlist or you could wing it and time the songs into each other. Then you would be judged by 3 Judges out of 10 : Mikey, Viv ( my best friend who works behind the bar), Dom (who owns the bar) and Melanie (some girl who was wasted and was having her birthday party there). Then the two highest score places would battle song for song for 5 songs. Winner gets a 6pack of beer.
So the night kicked off well, had a whiskey and water and a little bit of lemonade because i felt like i was coming down with a cold (which i now have) and i saw that in a movie once that whiskey helps colds. Spoke to Timmy Turntables (viv's boyfriend) about how gross johnny midnight (old flatmate at 314 crown st) used to smell because he only used to wash his clothes with water and no sud's, Timmy also reminded me of the time Johnny owed him rent money but convinced Timmy that swapping him two tshirts would more than make up for the rent. Then Timmy wore one of his newly aquired 'rent-money tshirt's' to get some milk and couldnt figure out what the horrid smell lurking around him was......he realised with a wiff of the armpit it was his new shirt......Johnny had swapped Timmy soiled t-shirts for rent money!
This story made me teary from laughing so much.
My set time was 10pm..... i came early to check out my competition.
I missed Timmy's set but he was peeved because the drunk birthday girl scored him a 5!
Then Mikey played.....he was more organising so i think he just played some kind of hip-hop music. Then nathan played i thought he was my competition he started off with : Billy Jean. Everyone knows thats a party song and he had two friends dressed up dancing like Micheal Jackson.
Then came Lucky he was an a wildcard entry, he is gay and asian and wears those cool 'bathing ape' type clothes. This is when i started to get worried.....he had cool sunglasses and some other gay guys dancing for him....I had no props like sungasses to help my scores. Timmy knew he was going to loose so he decided he was going to help me win, we thought about ripping down the little fairylights that were around the doorway and wrapping me in them like a christmas tree.
But then aborted because they were stuck on too tight and because Dom who owns the bar was also a judge, and i'm sure he likes his fairy lights just where they are.
Louise played next, i suggested she play to Mikey, as i think she is very cool, only recently met her but am a fan already.
She just left her playlist on and came and drank outside with me.
Then it was my turn.....i made Timmy and Lou dance with me behind the dj booth.
I had some moves and was wearing a very cute outfit consiting of my favorite cacharel boots made out of some very young soft tights (which got a ladder because of a dance move in which i jumped onto the dj booth and did some leg crossing) a navy blue silk mini skirt and a white lace shirt which was my mums from india in the 70's. It was very Marianne Faithfull post Mick Jagger break up.
I played, tears for fears-head over heals, Melanie-brand new key, tom vek-CC( you set the fire in me), The beach boys- i was made to love her, elo-livin things......i think i played something else but i cant remember.
Anyway, i ended up having the highest score....but the second place getter was Lucky. We had to 'POD WAR'.
There is no need to get into the last part, because i lost to 'Pump the Jam'.
I was a gracious loser....but i had planned on using those winning beers to give to certain boy so he would be impressed.
But i was completely drunk from my home cold solution of whiskey and water and a little bit of lemonade.

The only exciting thing was that i worked out how to post images on peoples comment sections on myspace.....incase your wondering because its not in the FAQ section.......get onto that TOM!
You have to host the image on photo bucket ( then when you are making a comment type: time in the nella chronicles some blah of some either equally as boring writting or maybe it might be slightly more exciting!
