Day 1787 - Deep Fried Brain

Today I have a Deep Fried brain

I can't believe I googled Deep Fried Brain and got a result. This is a deep fried pork brain.  YUK!  But to be honest, it's kind of how I'm feeling right now so if the pic fits ... then let's roll with it.

Day 1786 - The Fringe

It's time for a Deep Fried haircut

I decided to be daring.  It took a lot of courage! But I did it. I finally caught up with the fashion. I went the fringe.  Better late than never ... What do you think?

Day 1785 - Sweet Chari-Tea

Mumager alert

Beautiful table decorations with so much to see, touch and taste

On Sunday I chaperoned Tahlia Jane to an event so that she could walk the runway.

Day 1784 - Positive Energy Activator

Start each day in a positive way

Ever heard of a Positive Energy Activator?

It's when you do something positive for someone else right at the start of the day which not only turns on your own "happiness chemicals" but creates a positive energy flow.

Day 1783 - Cold remedy

Got an end of winter lurgy?

Apparently you can treat a common cold without the need for a trip to the chemist.  According to the book "Natural Remedies" by Mim Beim, you can treat a cold as follows: In a teapot combine the juice of one lemon; add half the lemon rind chopped up; half a stick of cinnamon; a handful of fresh thyme chopped; 3cm of fresh ginger root thinly sliced; and a dollop of honey.  Add boiling water and stand for 5 minutes. Drink 2-3 cups daily.

I have been lucky enough to avoid the winter lurgy this year, so I haven't had a chance to try this remedy.  But I'll be sure to keep it up my sleeve for next time!

Day 1782 - Tahlia Jane

A quick pic

I spent the day chaperoning Tahlia at a fashion event where she walked the runway for Gwynnie's Emporium, as well as Rockstars and Royalty.  This is just a teaser. The rest of the pics will be shown on Wordless Wednesday.

Day 1781 - National Gallery of Australia

Today I had a date with Tahlia ... and Bob

Tahlia has an art assignment due where she has to compare and contrast realism and surrealism.  For the realism component she has chosen to concentrate on "Bob" by Chuck Close which just happens to be hanging at the National Gallery of Australia.  So what better excuse for a mother-daughter lunch date, than to head to the Gallery for a quick stroll through the artwork and to have lunch.

Day 1780 - Sleeping Beauty Give-Away #DisneyAU #DFFSleeping

Who has a Disney princess in their house this week for Book Week?  

Out of the vault! Now on DVD and Blu-ray

Not me.  My Disney princess disappeared many years ago.

Darby came to me during the week hoping to dress like Batman but we just don't have any dress-ups like that in the house anymore.  His previous super hero gear was for kids half his age.

Day 1779 - Trivia

Did you know:

Charlie Chaplin once won third prize in a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest.  Fascinating.

Chewing gum while peeling onions apparently stops you from crying.  Get out!

Killer whales kill sharks by torpedoing into the shark's tummy from below which causes the sharks to explode.  Nasty!

Every person has a unique tongue print.  Imagine taking tongue prints?!

A female ferret will die if she goes into heat and cannot find a mate.  Eeeek.

315 entries in Webster's 1996 dictionary were misspelled. That makes me feel better about the couple of errors I found in my Charlie books.

It turns out that Leonardo da Vinci invented the scissors! Clever Leo.

A man's beard grows fastest when he anticipates sex.  How did they measure that? I'll be looking at the Hairy McClary's a bit differently from now on.

Day 1778 - Wordless Wednesday

My week in pictures

A Cheer Chick Farewell
The last seven days have included our son-in-law's birthday, a farewell to one of my Cheer Chicks, some serious rock n roll, a fitting for a fashion show, a trip to the library, the ACT Regional Cheerleading competition (which I helped to coordinate), a tonne of Cheer Chick Charlie fans, and a bunch of clients, reports and meetings.

Here are a few snaps taken along the way.
