Hello everyone,
Well, my last post was a giant blab. Now for some crafty news:
I am knitting a pocket monster from knitty, the blue one. Aren't they cute?! I also frogged a scarf I was in the process of making, but I'm not exactly sure why. I think I needed something to do.
I haven't done any more scrapbooking. Any ideas for a page that doesn't involve friends? I can't really think of one. Maybe pets? They have really cute stickers at Spotlight (nope, not getting paid to say this) for scrapbooking which I might get a sheet of.
I went with school to see Hair today. Wowzers!!!! I just loved it. I think I was born in the wrong era. It looks so cool (minus the drug taking, of course)!
Well, have a good weekend,
Love Little Purl xx

Hey everyone,
Back to school today after the leisurely holidays. Boo hoo! Oh well, it was good to see everyone again and...er...scratch the bit about the work. Ha ha.
May I just recommend the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album (Stadium Arcadium)? It should be required listening for everyone...in fact, here is a list of everything everyone should do (in my opinion anyways):
WATCH: Labyrinth - David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly. Sarah is stuck babysitting her screaming baby (step?) brother, Toby, while her Dad and 'evil' step mother go out. To try and stop the baby screaming she tells him a story about a beautiful girl who is stuck babysitting her ungrateful baby brother (sounds familiar?). In her version of the story the beautiful girl calls on the goblins to come and take the baby away, which they do because the goblin king is in love with her. Back to real life, Toby is still screaming. Before exiting the room she tells him she wishes the goblins would come and take him away - and hey presto! He's gone! To get him back, Sarah must work through a complicated Labyrinth and get to the Goblin City, where Jareth (the real Goblin King) lives and take Toby back. This movie is worth seeing just for the awesome song Dance Magic.
LISTEN: Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers One word: WOW! I got this album for my birthday and I have to say, this is just song after song of...er...goodness. Highlights are Dani California, She's Only 18 and Charlie.
Well that's my rant. Just ignore me. I'm just a blabber :P.
Well, have a good hump day (you know, Wednesday...) and if I don't blog (slack old me) a good week!

Hello everyone, I am so sorry! Yes, long time no update. Naughty naughty.
I am mostly better, thanks for the well-wishings on
amanda j's blog. I have very yummy medicine that I just love taking, which is supposedly unusual. But it's so nice (and Barbie pink)!
Being sick gave me a chance to catch up on my Simpsons comics reading. Once or so a month I go a bit crazy and read every comic I have within reach, but I don't really buy new ones as they are so expensive!! However, I got a $20 gift voucher for Angus & Robertson for my birthday so yesterday we went in and I bought The Simpsons Uncensored Family Album. Just a question, can retailers go above the RRP? The book was $20.99 but it said it should've been $19.95 (and yes, it was Australian!). Oh well.
Another chance being sick gave me was I was able to watch Labyrinth and all the speical features again. *Sigh*, I have a confession to make. I have a major crush on David Bowie, and no, this isn't a new thing, I've had this crush since I was around seven. I know, I know, it's a little strange to like someone who isn't exactly around your age group but I just adore him in Labyrinth. If you haven't seen it, go and get it right now. Trust me, you will not regret it (unless you don't like great puppets).
Hmm, what else? Oh, another thing to do if you haven't is read Kira-Kira by Cynthia Kadohata. I finished it last night and bawled my eyes out! It's so sad towards the end, but it's just so well written. It comes highly recommended (won the Newberry (?) prize)!!
I am writing a story at the moment and the main character (Miyu) works in a yarn store. Quite a lot of thought went into the name of the yarn store and I still can't come up with one! Any ideas? I think it'll just remain nameless if I can't think of one. I'd give you the prologue, but I don't like it.
I've done some more scrap-booking!! It's so fun and great to do while listening to Ziggy Stardust... :oP. I did a page on my old friends from primary school (a lot are still friends!) and another on my new friends that I met this year. It's so strange, when we started high school everyone was saying "Oh, you'll all blend in someday and it won't matter what primary school you came from," but it didn't seem like that was going to happen at all. We didn't really want to add more people to our little group and neither did anyone else. Finally we all just clicked and well, it really doesn't matter anymore, we're just all friends. Yes, that was random, but I felt I had to say it!
Well, I better go eat something (it's been at least 3 minutes!),

Sorry for the previous post, it was very vague and to the point (wait, that doesn't make sense. But you know what I mean). But today I have a lot of spare time so I shall tell more...
In Melbourne I bought:
  • A lot of notebooks from a cute shop called Artbox
  • A Hello Kitty necklace (actually it was a gift from my Aunty who lives in Melbourne)
  • A Billabong jacket and t-shirt from the outlet
  • A pair of pink Converse high-tops (another pressie)
  • A spotty headband
  • A necklace for Mum
  • Hello Kitty chewing gum (I wasn't going to eat it but I did..it has a sticker with each piece!)
  • Some Hello Kitty stationary (seeing a pattern here?)
  • A green spotty bag from Dangerfield
  • A long sweatband with hearts on it (also Dangerfield)
  • Girlforce: Pamper (a cool book I was going to buy for $14.95 then found it in a different shop for $2.95)
  • Powerpuff Girls lip gloss (I couldn't go past it! Except it dried my lips out so I spooned it out and replaced it with Paw Paw stuff)
And some other stuff, but I can't remember it. Haha.
What else? Ah, teenage angst. Nope, I haven't changed since being 12, meaning yes, I'm a little moody, especially when I've just woken up. I have no desire to become a rebel. Yet.
I have ceased knitting the scarf for the time being but I'm doing a beanie to send to Mongolia. Mum started it and I'm doing the rest at the mo. Very addictive and good to do while watching Lost, seeing as I can barely follow it anyways (does anyone understand it? I've missed too many eps! What are they doing in the hatch?!).
Well, I best be off,
Love Little Purl xx
