Oh, Gordon Gekko

Very much enjoyed Wall St 2 and my first trip to the movies in forever. My local cinema had 8 people in total seeing the flick, and 1 in total working. How do such establishments stay in business?
Anyway, it's a bit Oliver Stone- montagey OTT in places, really predictable and I totally do not understand Carey Mulligan's 'it' girl status, but somehow I still really liked it.

Ah, memories of being in the Japan countryside and reading a 3 day old English newspaper touting the end of the world as we know it. And not being able to access internet/ phones to see exactly how much money we had bled in the stockmarket crash. Which in hindsight was probably the best place to be.

Spin baby!

Back to the gym this morning. Like every other desperado freaking out at the 28deg days I suppose. When did the gym get so packed?
After my dreadful hangover Friday-Saturday-Sunday I am off the booze for a while. Stop rolling your eyes. I refuse to feel 30. Netball tonight, will hopefully give my knee a bit of a run and see how it holds up. Old lady?

Sadly I will not be having the anticipated hot date with Ms C. Love I have been dreaming of in January. I still have my fingers crossed as my insider is never usually wrong about these things. Will this be the first year I go through with my threats of not going to the BDO? Gasp! Is 15 too many?

Someone once told me when you turn 30 you don't get hangovers any more

They lied. And when I meet up with her in a pub tomorrow to watch bogans and pretty boys clash, I shall make this very clear to her.

Despite drinking my own body weight in Bintang daily last week and waking up fresh as a (sweaty) daisy, last night we went to the premier of a surfing flick made by a friend of Mr CB's and several drinkies were had. This morning I felt like death, vommed for hours and had to cancel a meeting I had in Newport. Undeserved hangovers are the worst. Mr CB reckons it's stress and that I needed to let a bit loose.

With the opening of Selfridge's insane new shoe department and the strong Aussie dollar, are you thinking what I'm thinking? Hmm... shame my account has almost been drained, no shopping trips for me. In better financial news, I did receive a cheque in the mail for $1.68 from Citibank for an account I closed, oh, I don'y know, 6 months ago? Clearly all financial worries have come to an end.

Mr CB, ie the best husband in the world, is currently purchasing me a kebab. Despite the fact that he worked his little bottom off today and I only left the couch to get another Zooper Dooper. Bless him.

Back from Bali

Tao Beach House, Legian
Had an amazing time and didn't do much of the 'nothing' I had planned. Had my card swiped and $12,000 in charges put on it, but fingers crossed it all comes back.

Baby white tigers, elephants and organutans, oh my. Best day of my life at the Safari Park.

Even have a semi tan. Well, for me.

It's not very nice to no longer be in weather less than 35 degrees, wearing clothes other than bikinis and sundresses, and not drinking before midday. Sigh.

Trackpads suck

My apologies, oh blog, for my absence. The mousepad-fingerthingy on my Mac decided to spaz out and not work, as though there were aliens/ ghosts in the computer clicking randomly on things. Strangely it is working perfectly now. Hmm.

I promise to do a proper update soon.

For now, I am tuned to ABC where J-Gill is about to hold a press conference. Will we have someone running the show shortly? I am almost passed caring about who does it, am rather sick of hearing them all carry on.

I will leave you with this gem from What Courtney Wore Today (ie the best website of all time):
“I got an earful about how pretentious Hermes scarves are. F that! Love them!”
