    *giggle* *giggle* oh my – what a start!!! 😉

  2. Monique

    hahaha you are HILARIOUS! 🙂 Fun fact, I almost went to a masters/PhD program in Melbourne that would have started this June. I’m kicking myself now for having turned it down….

  3. Amy

    hahahahah I would’ve found a clothing store and gone into their change rooms, but that would’ve made a less interesting blog post I suppose.

  4. Agnes

    Oh Hannah, you are definitely not a Melbournian. You have a long way to go, wee grasshopper.

    Oh you poor dear – even though I have lived in Melbourne all my life I too have been caught out in a drastic weather change, and I too, could not find a bathroom and instead had to duck behind a parked car to strip down, but at least I got a great story out of it as did you!

    melbourne’s crazy weather has a lot to answer for – but I have an answer! just a couple of days ago someone at work wsa looking at a public toilet app that you can get for free for your phone so you will always know where the nearest public toilet is (if you have a phone that takes apps and isn’t always dead like mine!) I think you might consider this for your next melb trip 🙂

    Psshhh, these ‘incriminating photos’ better get a hell of a lot more incriminating or I want my money back!

      * will settle for several spoonfuls of peanut butter.

    Good start Hannah … I can’t wait for the next one. (BTW, my eyes deceived me and for a minute I thought you were standing IN the trolley, not BY it.)

  9. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    The weather is the thing that stops me from moving to Melbourne. I got caught out pretty much the exact same way a few years ago! And you look like you’re about to do very suspicious things with the peanut butter!*

    * not meant in a weird perve way-honestly!

  10. Libby

    Ahh the weather has been crazy in Melbourne lately.

    The rain! The wind! The storms! And oh my goodness, the LOCUSTS! 😮

  11. Anna Johnston

    Now that’s the spirit, we need more Ambassadors from Canberra to show a bit of spirit & seriously…. what are you doing with that Peanut Butter girl ??

  12. Kate @ Green&Juicy

    Too funny! Yay, I just stumbled upon your blog – I love finding other Aussie blogs! Especially ones related to health and food yippee!!
    I will be reading along 🙂

  13. Priyanka

    LOL…that was too funny! Can’t wait to read part II.

  14. Camille

    They have Costco in Australia?! Awesome. Also, I’m very glad that you’re not shy about sharing your embarrassing stories with us for the sake of our amusement.

  15. Kath Lockett

    See? It’s the BLOODY TOURISTS to our lovely city who desecrate with their nakedness in public places and then try and soften the blow with that depraved peanut butter spread…. !

  16. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    hahaha so funny 🙂 thanks for a laugh first thing in the morning! You’re so right – where are our public bathrooms??
    Heidi xo

  17. Vaala ◪

    Hahaha!!! I had a lot more to say on this subject…then decided I should keep my mouth shut.

  18. theresa

    You just made me lul!

  19. gmasydney

    Maybe Melbournians should go back to wearing the tent dresses of yesteryear.

    1. Hannah

      I fear, dear grandma, that you are referring to muu-muus. And I simple can’t countenance that 😉

  20. L-Engineer

    Isn’t that what Department stores are for?

  21. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    HAHA! Oh, I would love to have seen their reaction. And yours, for that matter – what’d you do? Panic? Play it cool? Smile and toss your hair and wave? 🙂

    Guess where Matt is en route to right now – SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA. Work trip. NOT. FAIR.

  22. GirlonRaw

    Oh girl you make me laugh so hard! But it is exactly something like I would do ya know, I always get caught doing silly things like that. Oh and I could see you fitting RIGHT into Melbourne life if that was where you *maybe* were thinking about heading after studies (if not before?) Bet you’d miss your mum thought, and of course she’d miss you too!

    […] seen the peanut butter before, so we don’t need to talk about […]

  24. Louise

    I thought you were in the trolley too! Thought maybe the sudden release of blood from your tight-clad legs had rushed to your head, and you’d clambered into the trolley to fill it with even more giant sized jars of peanut butter. How on earth did you manage to get 7 kilos of snacks home?

  25. Emma @CakeMistress

    Oh hun, welcome to Melbourne 🙂
    I made the same clothing error when I first moved from Perth to Melbs. Although rather than find a spot to go sans pants, I pushed on and flashed the knickers anyways when I fainted. Can’t win :p

  26. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    I hope you glared spitefully at the couple for having the gall to invade your personal changing space. They must have been tourists too.

    You could have fully embraced the Melbourne busking spirit and got changed in the street, putting a boot out to collect change from passers by..? Might’ve allowed you a second jar of peanut butter.

  27. Peanut Butter Pretzel Pickles, or Melbourne Will Make A Fool Of You (Part Two) - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] by correlation, my sense of self. First, I was Adventurous Raw Vegan Cheesecake Girl, then I was Almost-Naked-Heatstroke-Fool Girl, and after that I was Costco Conqueror Girl. Have you picked the pattern yet? It goes like this: […]
