10 Things

Today I was browsing through a friend’s fabulous second hand lifestyle blog and I came across her little tribute to Ten Things I Hate About You. Which I have now decided to appropriate for myself, as I am a fan of lists! This one was ten about her, I have kept her sentence starters because I quite liked them.

  1. Collecting Perth Wildcats memorabilia, Audrey Hepburn memorabilia and my newest one is scarves. Started as a necessity for what I thought would be my new job but now is just a bunch of scarves.
  2. Wishing for some fun time with my number one. Tonight is their first night off in more than a week and they want a night to themselves (being a very individual, independent person). However since I so rarely get to see them I am struggling to keep myself from sending them twenty “what are you up to,” “how is your night,” “wanna hang out” messages. Sigh.
  3. Feeling antsy for some reason. It’s been a tiring and emotional week and my sleep schedule is so out of whack that I no longer know when I am actually tired or not.
  4. Watching season one of Friends. Funniest show of all time!!
  5. Smiling whenever my dad tells me to, even in text. This goes back to my child modelling days when I was taught smile number one (big smile with teeth) and smile number two (little smile, no teeth). My whole life whenever I have been upset or angry my dad will ask me to show him “number one” and no matter how old I am (as in how old I was last week when I called him upset about something. Also on Monday when I sent him a message saying “No job L” and he replied with “No worries SMILE, and think of the positives LOVE YOU!!” I smiled even though I was crying at he time) it makes me smile. Without fail. Gosh my dad is pretty amazing.
  6. Thinking that I really wanna see my number one, that I should have saved half my Turkish bread and fish melt for later instead of having it all for dinner, and that I should really clean up my room.
  7. Recently enjoyed how many gripes I have with episode two of the new season of Game of Thrones as a fan of the book series. For example, when Brienne and Cersei were chatting this is what was happening in my head: “WTF BRIENNE ALWAYS LOVES RENLY NOT JAMIE YOU TWAT! SHE IS LOYAL AND TRUE TO HER WORD BECAUSE SHE HAS A KNIGHT’S HONOUR AND FOLLOWS THROUGH ON HER PROMISES TO EVERYONE, NOT BECAUSE SHE WANTS JAMIE IN HER BREECHES! ARGH!!
  8. Totally Addicted to bass? It’s okay if you don’t get the reference, I listen to some obscure music sometimes. Probably more TV show and books, to the detriment of almost two university degrees, one hot body, one body image and almost two whole years of my life..
  9. Craving a hug from my number one. They have a way of making me feel safe and home and excited and loved all at the same time. Plus it’s been a rough week and I would really like some level of comfort beyond “something will come up eventually, keep applying.”
  10. Looking forward to the start of the Bulls’ off season in the wee hours of Monday, the Wildcats’ Ball next Saturday, the new X Men movie and Game of Thrones. And of course The Winds of Winter. But I have a feeling that the more people complain about it, the longer it will take to reach our Jon Snow deprived hands.

So that’s ten things about me, hopefully you don’t hate them!



Fast Five – Perth Wildcats vs Adelaide 36ers

In the 100th game played between two of the league’s most decorated teams it was Adelaide who picked up the upset win though they clearly were the better team on the night. Adam Ballinger in his 250th NBL game led his team in a very physical outing that erupted towards the end of the first half with former Perth boy Stephen Weigh shoving Shawn Redhage after the whistle. Weigh to his credit played a significant role in the downfall of his former team.

Fast Five – Perth Wildcats vs Melbourne Tigers

After a long winter of football finally the sun has risen on another year of my true love, basketball. Putting lockout nastiness aside, tonight was the first home game for the Perth Wildcats’ 2011-12 championship campaign. There is a lot that can be said about the lead up to the game, the quality of the two sides and the difference in the preseason game between the two and tonight. Now however, and for season 2011-12 I’ve decided to do a fast five of the games or rounds I watch, five points of interest, noteworthy stat lines, astonishing behaviours about the game I love.

Writing an entry for the National Basketball League’s fan voice competition I somehow went about 250 words over and am now struggling to cut it down to 400 words. I always find it hard to make cuts especially when the piece is something that I’m passionate about, and something that I could literally talk about for hours! The topic is “Who will be the next big thing in the NBL” so as I try to edit and make sure the topic has been addressed here is my uncut answer, enjoy! Continue reading Extra Loud Fan Voice!
