The contestants are monstering pavlova on MasterChef

What are these crazy
TV people doing to
my beloved pav?

(Also, why does no one applaud when I cut open my pavlova?)

Update: thanks to Jessica from one of my favourite blogs, {Black.White.Yellow}, for linking to this post on her post about security envelope patterns.

I love security envelopes (I was mocked for this last week) and I love bunting. I also love gifts in matchboxes. Here's something I made a couple of weeks ago when I should have been studying...

The matchbox is upside down to hide the identity of the recipient. The mushroom stamp is just in the pictures for additional cuteness. The "e" pattern is my favourite, of course!

At least I'm not eating chocolate while I watch.

The Biggest Loser
Finale. I hate it when
they weigh less than me.

My life of mundanity

Sitting on the couch
Watching the television
and surfing the web

A partly-read book
Plus an unopened home mag
Also sit by me.

I should clean my flat,
I should read my textbooks then
I should go to bed.

Thunderbird, you disappoint me

What sort of spell-check
Does not have the word "poo" in
its dictionary?

My mock exam was so demoralising

I now know why it
is called a mock exam: it's
because we are mocked.
