Black Dresses, Coconut & Lime @ Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Monday 20th January

Unproductivity. Woken by the delivery guy who has decided to go by name rather than address. The number isn't even the same, we're no.42 and the parcel says 7... The neighbour far down the street (still a neighbour, or too far to count?) was very nice, and had a cute puppy! She had super soft silky fur (I wasn't wearing stockings).

Considered going out to lunch, but wasn't feeling up to it (or leaving the computer). But then we remembered we were meant to go to the dr, couldn't recall why... Eventually we got it, there were forms to fill out. After the dr we went for an early dinner. 

Simply Grill'd

There's more to it on the other side. :P

Love Grill'd's chips with chili mayo.

Free Burger - Choices.

Burgers & Chips (to share) at Grill'd. They're having this promo where each week there's a special offer, once your state hits a certain temperature. We were lucky, had the lowest one at 24 degrees. There's a few burgers you can choose from. My favourite is still the chicken, pear and cranberry sauce that seems to be limited ed, and only found at QV (the manager there is really nice, though people at Grill'd are usually very friendly). Also love the bird and brie.

Found at Aldi, mixed reviews, but it's popular.

Saw 'The Internship' which was good, the end credits was pretty cool. My favourite scene would be the nightclub (or is that a strip club? 1.06.53). Megan (Bill's gf) looked familiar, she looks different with legs :P (Ariel in OUAT). Will Ferrell once again plays the A-hole just like in 'Wedding Crashers'. :P The Quidditch thing was interesting, though the snitch was disturbing. 

We do question how clean a club is though. Sucking on a strangers fingers is gross, who knows where that's been. Never seen a dance area with sprinkles before. Tapioca's pretty, some of them are so thin it's freaky. Ribs are freaky. 

How google ensures its staff will practically live on campus. :P Free (good) food, gym and nap pods. Since you can't date people you work with looks like you're married to your job. 

Google Office is amazing! Is the food really all free? Seems you can eat there but not take anything home. :P We have no idea what all the computer talk means though... You're never more than 150 feet = 45.72 metres away from food, that can't be good. Helping their employees be and stay healthy the bikes are pretty cool though do they come with helmets?


The florals in that picture are amazing, this wedding would have cost over 100k it looks like. But it does look amazing! That would cost so much... Wonder how much that will cost for 25 people, with a smaller room/deco and all. We're checking out a potential venue next week. Love that centerpice! Cheap and fun, shame it doesn't fit the theme, but if we go with a luncheon we might use it.

23 Ways your Wedding could be Ruined
No. 1 - It rains and you had an outdoor wedding. Beach weddings only happen on tv, or if you live in QLD and it's not winter. But then it could be humid. Outdoor weddings always have plan b. in case it rains, but we all know plan b. as never as good as a.

Late to class, lagging. Perhaps staying up to watch tv/work till 4am wasn't a good idea. Mocha! Still no brown sugar. :( Got some hw. We're the last class to do the carbon project. As the PM declared global warming is a lie cause he's an idiot, the school is scrapping the project, as it's not relevant anymore. Carbon emissions trading stuff and co.

National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGER Act). Really? Someone had a sense of humour, though that could be offensive. Funny though how the act has to go through both houses and it's a long process, and yet the name/acronym was approved... 

Finally exchange the candle, location: studio in a block/area of mini warehouses/showrooms. Long walk from the main roads with lots of trucks. Chose the 'Coconut & Lime' but I do love 'Cinnamon Buns' perfect for winter.

Currently reading... looking for the perfect LBD, Target has a large range. 

Back to the city we had a snack, went to QV to spend my giftcard to find out systems were down. Should I get a barrette and pay $5 extra, or a reed diffusor and a dust pink 'D' xmas tree deco thing?

Took a walk, across the bridge, there were love locks on it. My response to love is in the air is to wear a mask and spray Glen 20 in the air, but I know le beau will want to get one for our anniversary. 

Froyo $12 (paid $7 with a vou) can you believe 5 lychees (canned) changes the weight cost from $9 (w/o toppings) to $12?! They only had two flavours, berry and vanilla. Toppings sucks, nothing special, assorted canned fruit and cereal. Really who puts cereal on froyo? Same prices as elsewhere, inconvenient location. Don't bother. Also a marketing tip, people prefer to buy by size rather than grams. $2.60 for 100g means 26c a gram, that doesn't sound good.

Exploring. Locks are $10 by the way. 

Went for a walk, it was nice outside, so much air out there. We should do this more often, long walks in the gardens with a parasol.


Went to skool to help with enrollments, was meant to talk to the people in line O.O someone forgot to tell them I'm socially awks. Met a girl from Tasmania who came for enrollment (they don't offer them online, and when they do the system glitch and you still have to come to the office). Cadbury doesn't do tours anymore. :( They don't have Grill'd over there O.o and Grill'd's pretty big. We had lunch there, had the lamb & hummus which was good. Interesting, I prefer the chicken though.  

Goal setting session in the afternoon. Bus zoomed past me, so I had to run to get to the next stop. And that was Wednesday.


Slept in, went to a wedding, tutored some boys in maths, tried on a red top that was long enough to count as a mini dress - in my dreams.

Snacking - this was over a couple days. 

An hour and half late to class... but we were still productive! Carbon things, bench-marking. Walmart does so much, they even make their own renewable energy, wind power. 

Bought a barrette from Mimco, regret not buying the white one first. As the purple is now on sale but the white isn't. Do love these as it's something rare, Mimco mainly caterers for the ideal woman with lots of hair.

Tribal Pom Pom Scarf

Scarves from Witchery, an apricot one not for me, and a huge white ones with mini tassels. Not my style but we can wear it as a wrap or shawl in summer. Doesn't suit my lifestyle either as we rarely ever go to the beach. I live in the city, might suit a picnic though. Hate it how when you edit stock pictures they add a bg.   

Dinner at Bing Boy, I don't think the staff like me :P Surely I'm not the only person with all those 'free bing' cards? Think I still have like four. They don't have a lot of variety staff, we always see the same people.


Interview, was late as I got lost (walked in the opposite direction on the opposite road). Did some scans at the library. Went for a walk. Don't really remember what we did that day.

Hot chips at 'Snag Stand' with Truffle Dipping. Nice but too oily like Schnitz. 

At some point this week...

I googled my last name (though I've taken his) and it turns out to be Jewish. Though grandpa says we've been American/and a tiny bit French as far as he can recall (his grandpa came from Boardeux). No idea how last names were formed, but in the beginning (says le beau) they were to link people to their jobs e.g. The miller (makes flour for bread/cake) would be called Jon Mills/Miller.

We cleaned my room, well part of it. Was going to switch my winter wardrobe to summer but the portable clothes rack has vanished so we're waiting to get another one. Love candles, especially this one. Unfortunately the scent doesn't linger after you blow it out, unlike reeds.

Post idea, end of day food sales in the city. What's with "no photos"? Everyone knows what sushi looks like. The place above has 4 sushi rolls for $5 at the end of the day, it's near Target. At Melb Central near Breadtop there's a $3.50 pizza place at the end of the day, we shall try it one day.

Flowers from the cake, to be glitterized and made into headpieces.

V'Day aka 'Single Awareness Day' is coming.

Finished season 2 of 'The Paradise' better than Mr Selfridge.

Catherine's revenge isn't going too well, married a guy for his kid...


Adventures with le beau.

My favourite piano out of the 21.

Southbank Footbridge

From Lily, who likes pink. Lucy seems to like it.

I'd love Maki, Tomiko and Yume. Perfer the mini dolls rather than keyrings as I don't want them to get damaged. The white headed ones get dirty insanely fast. Le beau's favourite is the white/blue china (as in delicate plates/cups) inspired, Mana. 

Anyone know where you can buy the dolls?
