What else have we learned?

Puppies don't sleep in - they hurl themselves against the laundry door at 7.30 in the morning even if you were up till 1am talking to Ben.

Puppies don't come and sleep nicely in your bed after they are up at 7am.

The plastic bowl is still the best toy eva.

New Ceres Nights

Now I can talk about what's actually in the book, since we've announced the lineup n'all. It seems that there is a great need for detectives on this planet and a heck of a lot of mysterious things that need ... well ... detecting.

Also? A lot of cross dressers.


The project continues to evolve in its own unexpected way.


in space noone can hear you scream

So I got up far too early on a Saturday, met battblush for coffee at my fave place in the whole of Perth.

And then I fucked up the rest of my day. Fucked it up so well that I spread the fuckedupness far and fucking wide. And topped it up with my mobile ending up in the bath.

If you texted me after 7.30 - I'm really sorry but I didn't receive it. And to my dear friend who I was doing sitting by the phone time whilst you had a tough night, please email me and let me know all is well.

I'm miserable.

ETA: The phone doesn't owe me anything - I paid $80 for it like 3 years ago. I just don't want to lose all the numbers and dear-to-me messages on it.

I'm still not sure how or if I fucked up the first thing, I don't see how I could have ... but the other things I fucked up to spread the bad? - totally MINE and acted badly. GRRRR ....



Well the glass of white and the hot bath obviously was a fail...

There's only one thing left to do - for I will not touch TPP tonight - raspberry jam on toast and Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2.

Why do I have no chocolate or ice cream in the house? Damn those NY Resolutions!
