The Bitch Is Back.

I think it is time to resurrect this baby. I miss boring you all* to death!

*Yes, I know I am talking to myself**.

**It is awesome having multiple personalities to keep me company.

Seal of approval.

Do you ever have that image of yourself in your head, where you are slimmer or taller or just more graceful? I do. In particular, whenever I go swimming I think I glide through the water like a young, slim seal...

When in reality...

Maybe this is why...

This will be the easiest 10 bucks I ever made.

I bet 10 bucks no-one reads this blog anymore.

*waits for the money to roll in*

(Awesome, will put it towards new shoes :-D )

Might as well face it, I'm addicted to carbs.

My name is Tiz, and I am addicted to carbs.

There, I've said. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, right? 

Well, technically, I don't have a problem 'with' them. The problem would be not having them or trying to cut down on them. I don't crave sweets or chocolate or cake like others... I crave savoury goodness. For example, my favourite dessert is Nutella Pizza (*cue unrequited craving for Nutella pizza*).

I have already mention my love of chippies, and some of the other members of the carb family that I am also in love with are..


naan bread...



and hot chips... *insert Homer Simpson drool noise here*

Mmmmmm... carbilicious!

If I was ever instructed to give up carbs, I don't know what I would do (well, apart from wanting to see the person's medical licence.. after trying to throttle them). 

In the meantime, it's Pizza Night!!!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Pretty please!!

I have been in England for almost 6 months now and it is getting a lot cooler (read: cold) and some towns in the UK have already got some snow happening. They are all bragging about it on Twitter, with pictures showing various degrees of snow coverage. And well, ME WANT!!

Coming from Sydney where it never snows, I am a little bit excited about the possibility of snow and/or a white Christmas. The weather forecast yesterday mentioned that it would snow over the weekend in London. And then today, the prediction for snowfall was pushed back to mid next week. L.A.M.E.

Sure, I saw some snow up in the Scottish Highlands two weeks ago..

...but I want to be able to stick my tongue out and catch some flakes... Actually, scratch that. I suspect it will be a wee bit polluted by the time it reaches my tongue.. lol

I guess all I can do is wait for Mother Nature to let it snow when she feels it is the right time*. 


**Just a suggestion.

I am being stalked by the Easter Bunny.

Ok, so that title may not be 100% true... But I am being stalked by a bunny rabbit on campus at work!! Look, I have photographic evidence..

There he is, on the path behind me on the way to my office:

'Innocently'  poised on a grassy knoll (yes, I checked.. no rifle):

Casually pretending to be waiting for a bus at my bus stop:

And then, I got the office this morning... and found these on my desk!!

See... The evidence is all the in the Easter eggs! And, I just figured out how it got in... my office keys went "missing" late last week... hmmmm.

Ok, sure. I understand if you don't believe me.. but check out this picture and tell me someone isn't spying on me with a robot bunny that has part-camera and part-laser eyes...

Maybe I need to hire a security guard. Or maybe the lack of decent sleep for the past few weeks is making me a little bit cuckoo.  Yeah, that must be it.

Can you get restraining orders placed on animals?

And so, when Mikey's away, Tiz will play!  With jigsaw puzzles that is.

I know... bet you didn't think I was that wild and crazy.  But I am.

And so, the epic challenge of the 3D Sydney Opera House jigsaw puzzle was undertaken...

They say Rome wasn't built in a day..  and neither was this puzzle...

It was a slightly painful process of putting together pieces that were pretty much all grey for the sails!

The puzzle came with this extra piece... I wasn't sure where that was supposed to go...

Ahhh, ok. Obviously he was the foreman for construction. He forgot his hard hat though... Lucky we weren't that concerned with OH&S on this job (which is good as I may or may not have been drinking on the job... shhh!).


My work here is done.

See, just like the real thing!!
