Happy Birthday, Terri Clark…and Me

Today is July 14th – author Terri Clark’s birthday. Give her the gift of royalties by pre-ordering Sleepless.

It’s also my birthday, and I’m the ripe old age of 22. Had the whole birthday blues thing in the morning, but I’ve got over that emo biz, thank Crikey. Over for the time being, anyhoo. I treated myself to ordering some books, and buying others off eBay. (Did that earlier in the week, not today.) Not sure when I’ll get around to reading everything, but I’m trying. I’m really struggling with a particular novel right now. It’s not bad – it’s just not my thing, and I’m having trouble keeping concentration. Had the author not given it to me for review, I probably would’ve given up earlier, but I’m persevering. But it’s taking me days, and I feel guilty and tired.

Anyway, will probably treat myself to bags of chips from Coles. A lot of my reading is done while I eat, so I can keep going with this book, and eat comfort food.

Love my new pants, by the way. They’re “yoga pants”, but I don’t do yoga, so I use them as tracky daks. Anyway, they have a panel that goes up to my ribs, thus covering my gut. However, they’re thin and tight, and I’m worried about VPL. Fickle, aren’t I?

Arctic Comedy

Have photographed Manny with various books I own. Hope to transfer them to the PC tonight. I still won’t be able to alter the images, though.

I share my birthday with Terri Clark – mark July 14 on your calendars 🙂

Melbourne International Comedy Festival guide is out. There’s even a comedian from Finland! Antti HakalaArctic Comedy. I’m not sure what arctic comedy is, but woohoo! He observes the modern world from an original, realistic and honest perspective – an Arctic perspective – that is seldom seen at the Comedy Festival. And he is not against everything! Shows are English, though, which is admirable – being funny in your first language is difficult. Being funny is another language is even more difficult. Respect to you, Antti. In his show Antti talks about his tough childhood in the Arctic conditions, as well as his later struggles with the Australian culture, and reveals how it feels to be a foreigner with natural blond hair and soft skin.

Wait, what are those animals on his website? Elk? Reindeer? Moosies?
