Twitter... How I ♥ Thee...

So, I may or may not be slightly addicted to Twitter.

I won't even tell you how many times I check it every day... but lets just say, I may or may not say "Peace out" to the tweeps, go brush my teeth... and then check again from my mobile in bed. Maybe...

10 metres and 4 minutes... *dials number for Twitter rehab..*

It is mostly because of the fabulous new friends I have made on Twitter... An ever expanding group of fun, creative types who love shoes, bags, jewellery, stationery, and all things girly like I do. Many have fabulous blogs (that make me feel like a rookie) and have made successful careers doing what they love... Maybe Twitter is what I have always needed to motivate me to figure out what I want to be/do when I grow up... (once I stop tweeting all day...)

And I have made several new friends overseas. I declared my love for one of them today (he saved me some crumpets with honey!). Even though the time difference can be annoying, it is still great to be talking to people on the other side of the globe.

And then there are my real-life friends on there that I can chat to instantaneously, plan outings and get to know even better!

I don't know why people don't like Twitter... whats not to like?? Twitter is so random it's fabulous! I know a squid who loves cigars and is getting married, I know someone who loves #texaspie as much as I do, and I know girls who say 'Yes, it is ok to have that many shoes. In fact, here is a link to go buy more'.

This love affair is just beginning... ♥

Standing Room Only.

On a 'night in' at a friend's place, a group of us started playing Trivial Pursuit ( the electronic version... pretty spiffy!). And it wasn't long before I got into trouble...

Not for cheating. Not for drinking too much... (we all were - a certain someone was drinking straight from the champagne bottle.. you know who you are! And that's why I ♥ you!).

No, I got into trouble for.... standing up. I know. How dare I!! What a sick, perverted individual I am (probably...).

So I have a fidgeting problem... So what! No need to pick on me. At first, I would sit down whenever they asked what the hell I was doing, but then I would be up again without realising. So I decided to stay up. They did not like.

Oh well, they may have mocked me (and still do)... but my team mate and I won! So there. *blows raspberry in their general direction*

Smarty Pants (No, Not Me)

In a few short hours, I will be rubbing shoulders with some very smart people at the Innovation Awards at work. The awards "... recognise outstanding performance and excellence in innovation, and the contribution our research has made to the community".

One day, I will be receiving an award - for my research that is already underway on 'How many shoes are too many?'*

Adam Spencer is the Master of Ceremonies, so should be good evening. That being said, I am sure I will come out of this feeling extremely dumb, materialistic and a waste of space. So I plan on taking advantage of the free alcohol. And I will be wearing the sparkly shoes.... I feel better already!!

I wish I wore glasses so I could look more nerdy.

* I already know the answer: You can never have too many!!! I just plan on using the money to buy more shoes!!

I am the Gobbledok.


I ♥ them. If I could only eat one type of food for the rest of my life, it would be potato chips. I prefer plain chips, with salt & vinegar a close second. And don't even get me started on Cheezels! Forget chocolates, donuts, cake... Give me a bowl of chips and I will be happy. Day, night, drunk sober, drunk...

I think that I need to ban chippies from the house though.... or I will turn into the Gobbledock. Short, round, frizzy hair..... Wait a minute... I already am the Gobbledock!!!

Run, save yourselves! It's too late for me... Just leave your chips behind. Thanks.

OCD Tendencies (Vol 2) - Toilet Paper

I have mentioned before that as I get older (but miraculously manage to keep my girlish figure....*insert pffft noise here*), I notice more and more obsessive compulsive behaviour. No.2 on the list involves Toilet Paper.

Listen up peoples... the paper on toilet paper rolls must hang OVER, not under!!! Seriously. The world would be a better place if we all turned the toilet rolls over. Well, maybe not the whole world. But my little world would be better if we did :-) It would save me from having to do it.

Yes, you heard me. I will change your toilet roll around. A friend told me once that if I kept doing it at her place, I would have to leave toilet paper origami. So I did. I made a fan (convenient for a bathroom).

I have some theories why this is the better way for toilet paper to be:
  • It doesn't keep rolling once you tear off what you need
  • Following on from 1, chances are you will use less if it isn't free flowing (environmentally friendly!)
  • It is more aesthetically pleasing
And finally, the most important one:
  • Tiz will be a much happier little Vegemite* who doesn't weird you out by loitering in your bathroom trying to turn the roll around!

So please, spread the word and make a change! Your house, your friend's place, restaurants.... (but you can skip the public loos... eewww!!).

I will thank you for it with toilet paper origami.

+ I don't actually like Vegemite, but "little Nutella" doesn't have the same ring to it...

++ I'd also like to give a shout-out to my friend Naomi, who also turns the paper around. She also spells really well ;-)
