I interviewed a young anthropologist working with women in Mali, a country in Africa where women go around with bare breasts. They’re always feeding their babies. And when she told them that in our culture men are fascinated with breasts there was an instant of shock. The women burst out laughing. They laughed so hard, they fell on the floor.
They said, “You mean, men act like babies?”” —

Yes. Yes they do.
Awks when you come across a friend’s ex boyfriend on a dating site.
Gahhhh so many feels, this song, this album, amazing! I love how dancey this track is, it’s already a favourite :)
SEX, sex is all I hear. This album is hot.
So yeh, got a first date tonight
If I never settle down at least I’ll know that I mastered the first date scenario, because damn, I’ve never had a blow off. I’m that good.
That is, until they get to know me and eventually leave for someone better.
At least first impressions are my forte, and there’s nothing like a little boost to the ol’ spirit and cheeky goodnight kiss.
Wow, thank-you guys for being so generous in wanting to help out a bro !
Seriously, kimtheshizz who I’ve never even met offered to feed me !
But it’s all ok now, because my love is coming back, and she’s going to look after me :) Who needs a boyfriend when you have a girlfriend, amiright!
My phone bill was deducted from my account today and it was all the money I had to last me until Monday.
Basically I’m screwed. I haven’t done food shopping for 3 weeks so I have only scraps to eat, but my issue is I have nothing that is transferable to take to work for lunch. Plus tomorrow I have to work both my jobs. I can sneaky snack at my hospo job, but the 9 hours beforehand all I have is 2 apples. I’m a big eater so I fear just how hungry I will be tomorrow.
It’s times like these when I wish I had a boyfriend, so he could care for me, chuck me a 20, but really that’s all. SUCH a gold digger I is.
I’m playing solo for the very first time at my friend Drei’s gig.
I’ve only shown probably 2 people an original song or two, but for the most part they have gone unheard because I’ve been privately writing some diddies.
This is the one time when it would mean most to me that people attend and show their support.
The gig is on the 1st December at the Empress in Fitzroy North.
Here’s a Facebook link…
I go under the moniker of Cindy Savage.
It’s actually going to be a lovey gig, Fiig are headlining and they’re an amazing Melbourne band who play sweet indie pop jams.
Plus I’ll be the blonde in the corner getting delightfully drunk, so if you’re a stranger come say hi.
My good friend Damien just got engaged to his boyfriend of 7 years.
They’re going to get married next year in November and if no other states legalize gay marriage, then I’ll be trekking to the ACT to be a groom’s maid. I’m so thrilled for them. They’ve been together for ages and are a wonderful couple.
That’s couple number 5 from my friendship pool that have gotten engaged this year, must be the year for love and commitment.
Lol, I’ma be single forever ! And that’s ok :)
Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made
I passed my International Migration Policy unit.
Seriously thought I was going to fail and then in turn not be able to graduate, but I got a credit.
Thank Christ because this has been eating at my insides all week and finally this weight has been lifted.
Now my next move is this Friday. I made it to the second round of education scholarships. Basically they give out 2 $11000 scholarships to students going on to study Masters of Teaching in a language. I ‘wowed’ them with my application, now I need to charm them in person, so fingers crossed. It would actually be nice to not have to work whilst studying my post grad.
My niece has started dancing at my old dance school of 12 years.
She’s only 2 years old and already a natural.
I must refrain from becoming a stage aunt, but it would be awesome if she continues it and starts entering competitions and doing exams like her ol’ Aunty Jess did.
But only if she wants to/enjoys it of course.
