Probably the only time you'll see me in a push up bra (probably..)

This is a post filled to the brim with bits and bobs.

Before my birthday, Inspector Climate kept telling me he didn't like hiding things from me - even if those things were presents for me for my birthday. I told him I didn't mind because I knew he was going to get me a puppy...

He said he wasn't.

"A kittttty!" I squealed.

"No, D. You know we aren't getting a cat..."

"A penguin?" I asked full of confidence.

"No, I am not getting you a penguin!"

He is such a liar...

See, about 6 months ago, I went to the Aquarium in Melbourne (god, I love me aquariums) and saw the most fuzzy wuzzy stuffed animal penguin ever and I nearly bought it, but I was unemployed and couldn't really justify to myself that I needed a stuffed animal. I told Inspector Climate the whole story. And the morning of my birthday he presented me with .... Penguin. I can't seem to name him - and if you know me, which you do, everything must have a name...Now, to be clear, this isn't the penguin I originally fell in cuddle with. It is about twice as big and is of the King variety instead of the Gentoo.

I've felt unsure about Penguin since he was first sat in my lap - I am 25 do I really want a giant penguin? And the answer as it turns out is yes! Yes, I do.

This is us feeling peckish...

Penguin gives super good hugs...

And penguin loves to cuddle...

Last week, I went and got a manicure because my nails were becoming UNBEARABLE and I don't have the skills with a file to fix them. I went to the rack of nailpolish to choose a shade. I wanted a coral-like colour or orange. and When I found the colour featured in the above photo I knew it was The One. I was expecting it to be called Jelly Belly or Candy or Nemo...what I wasn't expecting was to have Push Up Bra in my hand. Is it just me or do you not even slightly think of coral when someone mentions a push up bra?

Lastly, there is this. There are no words.


  1. That penguin is amazing! I wants one!! Oh and that ugly dancer site? You are right. No words.

  2. Why would you NOT want a giant fuzzy penguin!?!

  3. Cute penguin. :)

    I somehow can only think of Pingu when I see a penguin :D

    And that dance... :0

  4. I LOVE THE PENGUIN! I am 28 and would not feel the least bit ashamed if I asked for (and received) a stuffed penguin like that. We all need hugs from polyester filled animal once in a while, regardless of age.

    I read through your latest posts (havent been able to lately because of stupid internet at home...see my recent posts) and I hope you are feeling better at work and not panicking so much. I know that feeling and I know how much it can screw up other parts of our lives. Hope things get better :)

  5. Cammy - I know the penguin is fairly amazing....

    Kyle - Hah! I obviously didn't think it all the way through.

    Sanchari - Yes Penguin is very cute.

    Crystal - I am so SO sorry about your internet issues, that totally sucks.
