Haha Amber just bought to my attention that the random post I just posted actually comes up on RSS reader even though I deleted it 2 seconds later (I was just giving my Aunty a demonstration on how easy it is to make a blog post as she is going to have a blog, and that was the first picture on my desktop) oops.

It's probably fine as I'm pretty sure Amber is the only person with this blog on a reader, hehe


Unnecessary disclaimer


Update - we are slackbums

Just in case anybody stumbles across this blog anymore...this is just to say that we never blog anymore but maybe we will, at some point.

I'm busy prepping to move back to London and Christine is busy being a high flying journalist type.

But we love you, whoever you are



A reason to blog again

We've been really bad at this lately!
But here is a treehouse, and suddenly I'm inspired again:


It ain't me, babe

Go 'way from my window,
Leave at your own chosen speed.
I'm not the one you want, babe,
I'm not the one you need.
You say you're lookin' for someone
Never weak but always strong,
To protect you an' defend you
Whether you are right or wrong,
Someone to open each and every door,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go lightly from the ledge, babe,
Go lightly on the ground.
I'm not the one you want, babe,
I will only let you down.
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who will promise never to part,
Someone to close his eyes for you,
Someone to close his heart,
Someone who will die for you an' more,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go melt back into the night, babe,
Everything inside is made of stone.
There's nothing in here moving
An' anyway I'm not alone.
You say you're looking for someone
Who'll pick you up each time you fall,
To gather flowers constantly
An' to come each time you call,
A lover for your life an' nothing more,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.


Funny Facebook

Facebook has the weirdest ads

"Get some of our teeth whitener and your lips will turn glossy and multi-coloured as a bonus!"

Top notch advertising.

Bigger than Jesus

Gosh, I love this photo of The Beatles! Look how awesome and happy go lucky and chuffed and cool they all are. Especially John - my favourite Beatle.
When I'm not listening to The xx (which isn't often), I'm listening to The Beatles White Album. Best album. Guitars gently weeping, etc.

Korean Pancakes

Like I NEED another food addiction.

Someone tipped me off to the little hole-in-the-wall Korean Pancake shop on the corner of Wellesley & Lorne St.

So far I've tried chicken&Cheese and Beef&cheese, they also have sweet ones and vege ones and ham ones. And all for $2.50!

They're so good...really just a big cheap greasy mess, but I have to say I am really quite partial to big greasy messes :/ :/

Umiya has serious competition!


The xx

Today is "Listen to Nothing But The xx Day."
In fairness, the last week has almost purely been "Listen to Nothing But The xx Day." I'm obsessed: Every single song is so beautiful. Liss and I are both feeling a lot of feelings for The xx at the moment and we particularly like Intro, Crystalise, Islands and Infinity. The songs love is made out of.
It's the soundtrack to all things lovely and special, and everybody should listen to it. This video to Crystalise is also rad:


Spring shadows

Our friend Chelsea has this very cool blog about our home town, called I Have Loved You So Long. We are rather parochial around here and really do love the East Coast.
Anyway, I love these photos she took of the shadows from the spring sun coming through her bedroom window. So lovely !



I’m going to Fleetwood Mac! Tickets sold out within minutes but luckily I have a friend with super speed internet that snapped us up a couple just in the nick of time. Joy! My life is complete.

Top 5 all-time best ever reasons why Fleetwood Mac is going to rule:

1)Stevie Nicks is one of my heroes.
2)Rhiannon, Dreams, Sara, etc has been the soundtrack to my life.
3)I have never been to Taranaki before
4)Me & my chum are going to hire a campervan, which is both hilarious and awesome.
5)Imagine all the amazing op shop and trinket spots I will discover on the nine-hour journey to the naki?!


Need this:

I want this ring slash bracelet! Or one that is pretty much the same! Where can I find one? Or can somebody make one? Or somthing ? Lissy? Help !


Shamelessly sucked in by ads.

I don't know what it smells like, but I do know I want it anyway.
