My first story in years. (Also my first assignment handed in on time this year.)
Guess this outfit won't be repeated.
Built an outfit today around a pair of knee-high blue socks. They cost $0.99 from a Salvos store, and have already lost most of their elasticity.
A thoroughly disappointing shopping day! Found myself in too many average op shops with overpriced shite, and visited the St Kilda Salvos for the first time after reading rave reviews.

This is the first (only!) interview of Jimmy Fallon’s I’ve watched, so what follows should be tempered: Maybe he would be better if he didn’t interrupt and talk over the people he’s interviewing?
We’re going to Byron! Not too soon (mid-August), but it’ll be a warm interlude to a Melbourne winter.
Guess who made a surprise appearance doing stand-up comedy at the Evelyn tonight? Janeane Garofalo! She’s in Melbourne for the comedy festival, but I got to see her for free! Suckas.
