1. I think every car should come with two horns. The first would blaze out a sound of pure fury, for use when a Fool Driver has almost side-swiped your car, failed to indicate, or didn’t properly obey the sacred rules of roundabouts. The other horn, however, would chirp out a happy sound like fairy-floss and puppies, and is to be used when you’ve spotted a friend walking on the sidewalk, a Fabulous Driver has let you into their lane during peak hour, or you’ve spotted a double rainbow through the front windshield.
2. I was cleaning up the 120+ drafts in my Gmail account (most of which are pre-blog chocolate reviews) last night, and found the following note to myself from late 2010:
I’m not going to do this PhD. I’m going to create novelty kettles instead.
Well, I got half of that right.
3. I also found a draft document with nothing but the phrase “Echidna potatoes” written inside. I think maybe I was planning a riff on Hasselback Potatoes? Except… echidna-ish?
Or not. I don’t know.
4. I recently re-watched 10 Things I Hate About You for the first time in a great while, and realised the following:
a) I still know pretty much every line by heart.
b) I must stop talking about building a shrine to Allison Janney and actually do it.
c) Heath Ledger breaks my heart in this movie, but not in the heart-throb way (or not just in the heart-throb way). It’s horrifically rotten that someone so talented, cherished, loved and respected could feel so very alone and so broken.
d) My hair is exactly the same as Heath Ledger’s in 10 Things, and we both find Michelle Williams gorgeous and would happily sneak into a tent with Jake Gyllenhaal in the middle of the night. Please no one ever give me sleeping pills.
e) That was maybe incredibly inappropriate. I’m sorry.
f) Echidna potato, anyone?
I need to go to Posture School.
5. Hey look! The day after the blackberry-kangaroo-gallivant, Jeniqua, E.Moonbeams and I went geocaching and were entirely awesome at it. And then we did wild leaping and stretching and dancing on the oval, and I discovered that I am still flexible enough to pull off my Fallen From A Great Height position.
6. Six hours later at choir rehearsal, Deb pulled leaves from my hair that I must have accrued whilst practicing my Fallen From A Great Height Position on the oval.
7. OH MY HOLY HANDBUCKET A MOTH JUST FLEW DOWN MY TOP AND I CAN’T GET IT OUT IT’S TICKLING HELP SOMEBODY HELP HELP.
8. Okay, it’s gone now.
9. Well, that’s not at all where I expected this post to go when I started writing it.
10. I think I’m going to sketch a few novelty kettles now.
11. Hannah out.
